Help needed with filters
« on: May 16, 2023, 12:10:18 PM »
Guys, I only want to play horizontal arcade games on my arcade cab as I already have a vertical cab. Is there an easy to follow guide anywhere?

Thanks

Thanks. I did try that but it didn’t seem to do anything. Maybe I’ve got the CATVER.INI set up wrong.

catver.ini is only needed for genre information. You need to make sure that you call "mame.exe -listxml" when generating your romlists. This is what will get most of the game information.

Example of mame.cfg

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1
#
executable           \path\to\mame\mame64.exe
args                 [name]
rompath              \path\to\mame\roms
romext               .zip
system               Arcade
info_source          listxml
import_extras       \path\to\mame\catver.ini;\path\to\mame\nplayers.ini

or

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1
#
executable           \path\to\mame\mame64.exe
args                 [name]
rompath              \path\to\mame\roms
romext               .zip
system               Arcade
info_source          thegamesdb.net
import_extras        \path\to\mame\mame.xml;\path\to\mame\catver.ini;\path\to\mame\nplayers.ini
