Maybe I have to change the emulator cfg? Switch in info_source listxml?

You gave a "smiley face" on this post so I thought you understood it and found your answer to this post. http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=4228.msg29732#msg29732

This post show's what you are asking. If you don't understand it ask questions. This is a command line method to get your results.


You might also be able to list your file under the "import_extras" field of the emulator.cfg to get these settings. I haven't tried it but it's common for other systems. This would be a way to get your results through the graphical interface.

emulator.cfg
Code: [Select]
import_extras       Path\To\Your\File.xml

P.S. Your xml list does show number of players but not years. You might consider a better source for your xml files.
