I just edited the parents.xml file so that Sega Genesis MSU and Sega Genesis English Translated (both are two platforms) appear within the Sega Genesis platform. I don't know if it's the right way, but it looks like I want in LaunchBox. The thing is that when I go to edit platform I see that the parent category "root" is marked, and they don't appear as Sega Genesis subplatforms.
I have imported some mame roms as Arcade, during which I selected to create Playlists for MAME sub categories (capcom classics etc.) That all worked as planned perfectly. Once done, I created some more sub categories in Arcade called Arcade Systems, Arcade Collections, Arcade Genre. Plan is to move all the "Classics" into Arcade Collections, and all the "Systems" into Arcade Systems. But... When I change one playlists parent category, eg. Capcom Classics from Arcade to Arcade Collections, all the generated playlists become unpopulated (empty). Not just the one I moved, ALL of them. *EDIT... Actually I moved two playlists if it makes a difference. One to Arcade Collections sub category, and one to Arcade Systems sub category. *Edit 2... Solved... I renamed Arcade to All Arcade, this is what messed it all up.
I've tried searching for this, and it has probably been answered somewhere else, but i'm having problems getting the automatically created Arcade playlists to show in Bigbox AFTER clicking "Arcade". Might parent/child-playlist be a Bigbox theme-dependant thing? I'm using Cityhunter theme with the platforms scrolling horizontally in the lower thirds of the screen.
I'm trying to import a full mame 0.185 split romset. I've unchecked all the "skip" options in the importer and also chose to import clones. I've noticed that for some games, the default rom under which all the clones are combined is not the parent, rather some other clone. For example, sf2ce is the parent rom for Street Fighter II': Champion Edition, but launchbox shows sf2acc as the default game. Any ideas?
