AladdinSane Posted December 9, 2015 Author Share Posted December 9, 2015 Hello, I am getting around to setting up my Big Box set up and have a few questions about setup. Is there the ability (or does another source exist?) to use another source for metadata? I have a lot of Japanese games that are not being matched and are not in GameDB. Does something better exist? Can Launchbox work as middleware and/or have some ability to rename roms to match the EmuMovies naming standard? Since the EM sync is in the background and rather transparent, if your files are not named correctly, it will simply not find anything. If the database knows that, for example, Super Mario Two.nes is equal to GameDB ID 1234, it should then be able to map that to EmuMovies Super Mario 2 (US).nes and then rename the file to match the standard. Is something like this possible? It seems like when adding new ROMs I would need to manually log in to my EmuMovies account to make sure the files are named correctly so I can ensure all the metadata points match up. I look at something like Plex which has a somewhat loose naming standard and allows you to manually match something then "line it up" with the metadata providers in the background. Also, similar to Plex, when you manually modify a field in the database it shows a lock icon that prevents it from being overwritten from any metadata refresh. Something like this would be great in Launchbox so if I make a change to a Notes field, category or similar that it will not be erased in the future. Overall it is a great program and I look forward to getting everything switched over to it! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
