Is it possible loading different language of romlist file?
« on: March 26, 2021, 01:57:11 AM »
It means, we can select the language of game name in theme options.

For example, we prepare 2 language files called mame_en.txt & mame_jp.txt in romlists folder. When I select English in oprion that will be loading mame_en.txt. Next, select Japanese, it will be loading mame_jp.txt. Thanks.

not necessary. in AM already exists filter.
add language and region entries in your romlist.
use filter for change romlist by region or language

or

create two displays.
One called MAME EN, with EN Roms
One called MAME JP, with JP Roms
AM Version : 2.6.1
Input : Mad Catz Brawlstick; Mouse; Keyboard; Xbox360 Wireless
Cabinet : Yes
OS : Windows10 Pro
System : Dell Precision T3500 ; Intel X5650 ; 12GB RAM

Thank you for your reply. May Be I explain it more details. It is not meaning of different regional rom. It means  displaying diiferent language of same rom for English & Japanese Name.
