Any way to reset play count?

Recommended Posts

My play count is off in a lot of games from loading/testing/tweaking,etc when first settling up. Is there any way to reset the play count of everything in LB/BB back to 0.

I don't think there currently is. You could remove the platform and re-import your games and not download any images, but you'll also lose your favorites. That's currently the only way that I know of. If you'd like to request the feature be added, then click Issues/Requests at the top of the page and request the feature be added. Do a quick check to see if it's been added first, and if so please vote on that one instead, but if it hasn't then create your own and vote on that one.

I dont want to do that as for mame I had to force it to import everything and delete what I dont want. Some of which I just deleted from LB and not delete the file as they were the parent rom of another version. The problem with letting LB decide what to import was it was only importing the 4 player version of some games and in those you cant pick your character when playing SP. I guess I'll just have to have the play count wrong.

You could go into each platforms .xml file and look for all the instances of <PlayCount>#<PlayCount> and set it to 0.

I dont want to risk it screwing something up over such a minor thing. If it was changing one or 2 lines I probably would try it but in mame for example there are a lot of entries.  Its not really a big deal as play count doesn't really matter, it was more just part of wanting to to wipe it to clean for use after all the configuring and tweaking is done and its ready for normal use.

I did think of that but tbh it's so minor I figured there are far more important things for Jason to be doing so I'm not going to.

just save any file before attempting to change it and then if you screw something up just overwrite it.

Selected all the games you wish to reset, choose edit. It will take you to a bulk editor wizard. check and uncheck the date on last played. win!
