  1. MAME Software Lists Import Tool - plugin View File Use this plugin to filter and import MAME Software Lists into LaunchBox. Features:- Choose to import clones as Additional Apps, separately or not at all - Skip Prototypes (filter option) - Skip Non Supported games (filter option) - Import the selected (filtered) Console/Computer games into LaunchBox - Adds the appropriate command to each imported games' Command Line (ex. a2600 -cart) - Copy the filtered selection of roms to a separate folder (optional) (After copying files, they will automatically be imported) - If a newly imported game is tagged as not supported by MAME, it will be marked as "Broken". Will also check existing games in the Platform being imported to (in case MAME updated its' status) *New v3.0 - New Audit Feature. Compare your existing softlist Platform against the MAME hash.xml. Will cross check Title and Rom names. - Select the respective hash.xml and Platform - Click Audit (last page) - Any differences along with a brief description will be shown. - Option to select files (if any) and have them removed from your LaunchBox Platform. - Will check main Titles as well as Additional Apps (if you imported them that way). This does NOT check rom integrity. That's between you and Clrmamepro (or related utility). What's needed: - (2) dll files included in the zip file Starting with v2.0, only need the (1) dll file included in the zip. - MAME Software List hash files (located in the "hash" sub folder of your Mame's main folder) - MAME Software List roms* and BIOS files (only if you want to actually play them) *The rom set needs to be either a Split set or a Non-Merged set for a full import - If you plan to not import clones, any type set will work. What it won't do: - Filter/Sort by Region (it's a MAME hash file limitation) - Determine if/what BIOS files are needed - Import Metadata and Media (just use LaunchBoxs' built-in Tool) How to: - Copy the "ImportMameSoftwareLists" folder from the zip file to your ..\LaunchBox\Plugins folder. - Navigate to that folder and unblock the 2 dll files. (Right click, Properties, and click Unblock) *New in v1.31 - Start LaunchBox. Click on "Tools" and select "Import MAME Software Lists". Note: - The "Destination Folder" is required even if you don't plan to copy the files. It's needed to set up the Application Folder for the games when Importing. See what's new in Change Log. * MESS xml * To see MAME's Overall and Emulation status [Preliminary/Good/Imperfect]in the Import Mame Software Lists plugin, you will need to have the MESS xml file that matches your version of MAME. messxxx.xml (where 'xxx' is the MAME version. i.e. mess215.xml) This file needs to be located in the same folder as the plugin (..\LaunchBox\Plugins\ImportMameSoftwareLists\) and can be download from: http://www.progettosnaps.net/mess/ These files are [relatively] large (24MB+) and will slow down the screen updates when selecting different consoles/computers. Use "Shrink_MESSxml.exe" to reduce the mess xml file size to a little over 1MB to eliminate slow screen updates. (April-2020 V2.0 is available. Reduces file size even more.) After 1st making a backup, it then removes unneeded data from the xml file. Place only the one 'shrunken' xml file in the plugin folder. ..\LaunchBox\Plugins\ImportMameSoftwareLists\mess215.xml (a 'shrunken' mess215.xml is included with v1.30) The Import Mame Software Lists plugin will search for "mess*.xml". So as you update, just replace the old xml file (mess215.xml) with the new one (mess216.xml). ONLY HAVE ONE MESS XML FILE IN THE PLUGIN FOLDER AT A TIME! v1.32 includes mess219.xml (shrunken, of course) Other Notes: (things I've learned) - Software List folder/file locations: - *Associated Platform Command line parameters - MAME and CDROMS Submitter JoeViking245 Submitted 09/08/2019 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins

  3. I have been using No-Intro ROMs for years and have loved them. They are probably the cleanest set out there. As MAME continues becoming "THE" emulator along side RetroArch, I have been collecting the "Software Lists" ROMs. They seems to be more complete, but also named very differently. Does the Launchbox Games DB recognize the MAME naming scheme for consoles? Thanks and God Bless!
