I recently moved my entire rom sets to another location on my local drive and now under the LB/BB games dir I'm looking for an easy way to change the location within LB/BB because it doesn't know I moved the files and I don't want to edit each XML file and change each game like that now is anyone going to make something so I can at least do one platform by being able to change a master location for example.

 

(Original location that is locked in LB/BB) D:\games\roms\mame

change to

(new location I want changed to) D:\Program Files (x86)\LaunchBox\Games\mame

 

I hope I posted this in the right area of the forums

There is no plugin right now.

The 2 ways to do it is either remove your games from LB and re-import them from the new location or use Notepad++ to bulk edit the xml files like I show how to here

I just did this using notepad++ it was actually really easy.  Just open all of the platform database files and do the find and replace in all open documents.  Took like 5 minutes.  Still needs to be a feature within launchbox, but this is a rather easy workaround.
