Attract Mode crashes when generate collection/Rom list
« on: March 31, 2021, 07:19:20 PM »
New to attract mode and think im doing things right from videos and walk thrus, but when i go to generate collection/Rom list it either crashes and closes on its own or shows the (not responding) window. Any idea why that would happen, worked for when i did it for NES but trying for SNES and working for that.

Sometimes i've got same problems.

-try newest version of AM

-use a small package/part of files to rom-folder > generate Romlist > copy romlist-textfile away > then replace next romfile-pack > generate next Romlist > copy romlist-textfile away > and so on > FINAL : copy and paste all single romlists to one "final" romlist
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

I have to agree with hermine.potter on  this one.

Sometimes a game name will freak out AM and the list building .e.g. extra space the the begging or end of a rom name..or a character that AM doesn't like ^%#@!&- and sometimes to find the "incorrectly" named roms you have to work in batches. I have done that a few times myself

do all the "A roms" then the "B roms" ect.
