  1. it was just an example. What I mean is people have their own sets and might have say, a best of, for a givne platform. Even if that ini file existed, their set wouldn't conform to that anyway.
  2. All good. I think the partial set import could be something to consider but I don't know how in-demand that is. I assume it would be popular since so many don't want to import educational stuff. Anyway, thanks for the response.
  3. I hear you, but the full set importer will still filter out those same games. What is needed is a checkbox to disable ALL filters because clearly there are filters being applied even when you tell Launchbox to import all clones, import all duplicates and skip nothing. I guess what I'm getting at is that the full set importer should continue working as is but when the user is manually importing the roms themselves, they should be granted the right to import exactly what they chose to import using the emulator they want to specify. The fact that the import wizard is still restricting the im
  4. I realize everything you mentioned but here's the point: I want them anyway. If they aren't working today, I want them there in my list, where I can hide them, so that they will be there in my list when they do work. Not actually true. Some of the new games are working, full games but in less than perfect quality. That doesn't mean they aren't playable. That's my point. I AM telling Launchbox to import EVERYTHING, skip NOTHING and I am trying to override the settings and yet it still filters out what it considers non valid. I want to make that full and complete choice, myself.
  5. Long time no speak! I know updating software lists wasn't in the cards originally, but I was wondering if you had put any thought into version 4? I just tried importing an update folder (contains only new roms) and the plugin keeps importing the entire platform. Say i want to import fmtowns_flop update folder (contains 8 files), the plugin imports 130 "files". I was thinking that the plugin could scan the source folder for the roms present (strip the path and file extension, retaining only the name), and then on the import loop compare the rom name from the hash to the "present
  6. @Jason Carr I'm not sure what it is that I'm doing wrong here. My understanding is that 11.9 is Mame version agnostic and includes the 227 xml files. I am trying to import the 227 update roms to a Temp platform. There are 168 files that I drag and drop into Launchbox for import. I tell it to scan as Arcade with MAME as the emulator. Import all duplicates, etc.... I want to import all 168 files. Yet the above is all Launchbox is recognizing. Even if I try to import as none of the above instead of roms, it is only recognizing the same set of games. It will only import all the f
  7. In 11.9 when changing a game's platform and opting to migrate media files, manuals don't get migrated. I have to manually go into the manuals folder and cut/paste the manuals.
  8. Upon further testing, deleting the emulator from the Managre Emulators window works. The issue was happening because I was trying to delete the emulator from the edit games window.
  9. Deleting emulators doesn't seem to work? I can delete them in Launchbox but on restart, they reappear...
  10. Any chance of having this video without the text on top?
  11. For both it's set to FM Towns Marty
  12. Nope. When the update window glitch happened, I was editing a game inside the FM Towns platform. I spent most of the day creating clear logos for the platform so I only ever was pressing F5 to refresh the window every once in a while. When the glitch happened, I force quit, reopened launchbox and applied the update. Once the update was done, the platform image folders were all reassigned to FM Towns CD. I never went into the edit platform window except the fix the issue after you mentioned it.
  13. They were supposed to be /Images/FM Towns and were changed to Images/FM Towns CD. All of the folders switched to the the FM Towns CD path, except videos for some reason. I do have a separate FM Towns CD platform. The paths in that folder remained correct.
  14. You were right. But I never went into that screen... glad to know its not irreparable though!
