Most efficient way to reimport roms


Recommended Posts

Hello :)
Trying to come up with the most effective/efficient way to remove my arcade roms, and re-import them (after cleaning up with clrmamepro.. just got the 1.83 version).. without having to re-import images and videos that are already downloaded....

Click on your platform, click a game, Ctrl + A to highlight everything, then press delete. Do what you need to do and re-import everything again like normal. Don't uncheck the LaunchBox Games Database check box, but instead uncheck all of the media boxes in the 2 pages after that screen (the LBGDB and EmuMovies media pages). Everything should re-attach automatically, and you wont need to download anything. This goes for any system. Just make sure to never uncheck the Database box, or they wont re-attach to the Database. The media will, but if you ever want to update things, it wouldn't work if the games aren't attached to ID's.
