I would recommend that you submit the issue as a bug.

I went to the Bug Reports forum, but it redirects to github. I don't have a github account and no plans on using any kind of repositories in the future. :'(

And I already worked around my issue by renaming the tag from "3D Action" to "3D Action Combat".

But I'll probably do it in the far future.

Yes. That is how the condition "equals" and condition "contains" works. But my issue with Attract-mode is that condition "equals" on "Tags" doesn't work. And I check both the letter case of the condition and the titles.

I use condition "equals" on "Emulator" on my build without any issues. I'm on Windows 10.

In your post it says

Quote
Manufacturer equals Whatever
shows : Whatever
don't show : Whatever/Whatelse2

Manufacturer contains Whatever
shows : Whatever
shows : Whatever/Whatelse2

But why would "Whatever" not show if the filter is "equals Whatever"?

I have a display called "3D Action" and a display called "3D Action Vehicular".

Then I notice that "Twisted Metal" shows up in my "3D Action" display. So, I change the filter from "contains" to "equals" but that breaks the display not showing any games at all.

I'm not angry or anything. I'm just expressing my opinion. I will eventually do it manually if nothing happens in the following months... since this not really a priority or even one my main hobbies. But it would be nice if there's someone here that have a thegamesdb account and enough rank to edit the Chip and Dale entry. Not change the title, since that would conflict with what's already established; but to just add an alternative title (also known as).

That didn't work. Thanks anyway.

@hermine.potter
Thanks for the manual romlist edit guide. But if I really have to manually edit the romlist like that, then Attract-mode have failed. I think the best solution is to update the Rescue Rangers entry in thegamesdb, like check if it's using normal characters, or at least give it an "also known as" field like in other games. Or maybe check if attract-mode have an issue with multiple commas ( ' ) if the title contains a colon ( : ).

It's not about images not downloading, really. It's more about the game not being recognized/identified.

You see, you can't name the file "Disney's Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers", you need to remove the colon ( : ), so "Disney's Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers". I think I already did this with other games without any issues. And I know some games have alternative names, that's why I keep renaming the file. I just rename the file to "Disney's Chip 'n Dale - Rescue Rangers", but that still didn't work.

Thanks progets. That is much, much better. It only took a couple of seconds.

attract --build-romlist <emulator names...>

How can I use this? Let's say I have three emulators; like this?
Quote
attract --build-romlist "Nintendo Entertainment System", "Super Nintendo Entertainment System", "Game Boy Advance"

Where do I put the name of the output file, "All Systems"?

So, do you have the command-line for combining my romlists, so I don't have to use the "generate Collection/Rom List" for my "romlist of romlists"?

Because if it's 2mins for 100games, it's probably gonna be 10mins for 500 games. And I'm still currently adding games.

You jumped on an already existing thread and haven't told us what you're trying to accomplish. You might be better off just using the command line to combine your lists which takes no time all.

@progets
Sorry if I angered you. I just want to comment in this thread because of that minor issue. I think it's slow, but it's done in 1 minute and 15 seconds (109 games), so it's not that bad. That's why I didn't create a new thread for this. I can use cmd commands, but I'm not studying AM's source code to do it manually. I just want to use AM, instead of creating my own launcher. Sorry again.

Disabled the image scraper. And it's still slow... Turn it back on again because I need the images. Just like zpaolo11x said, there's "some form of scraping for metadata is still needed".

It should just copy the details from the already generated romlists, it doesn't have to scrape meta data all over again when creating a "romlist of romlists"

I'm talking about the masterlist that comes with 2.6.1 I'm not using any separate plug-ins. I'm assuming that it's getting the info again because of the time it takes to create the master list.

Also, I don't have "Configuration-->Scrape-->(auto-scrape or re-scrape)". I have "Configure-->Scraper-->(see attached pic)"

I'm actually talking about the "generate Collection/Rom List" of my masterlist. I didn't realize that "generate Collection/Rom List" is also the title for generating the game list per emulator. I hope that didn't confuse you.

Where is this "auto scrape" option? I can't seem to find it.

Also, I don't think  "generate Collection/Rom List" for my masterlist is scraping images. I think it's just getting the games' info from thegamesdb.net instead of just copying from the emulators generated list.
