Renaming Platform

The Papaw

Recommended Posts

Hi, running the beta version. I had imported a collection for SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) using RetroArch emulator. Everything worked fine, games played correct. Then I thought the platform name might look better by shortening "Super Nintendo Entertainment System" to "Super Nintendo (SNES)". So I right clicked on it >Edit and changed it, all appeared fine. Done the same for "Nintendo Entertainment System" to Nintendo. However, when I clicked on a game, they do not start, then the artwork disappears like a broken game. I tried to put the original names back, but same issue. I also noticed that the "Launch with.." in the context menu was grayed out. I had to delete both platforms and import them fresh again to the games to work again.

In the manage emulators you have to add the new name to the list of platforms for retroarch and add the path to the core for it.  Odd it didn't work when you changed it back though, are you 100% there was no difference to how it was originally? For images you need to into the settings for the platform after you have changed it and select the scrape as super nintendo entertainment system. You can just put the new name in manually when importing and it will then give the the scrape as option there. You still need to manually add the new name to the retorarch config though. I had to do this because I wanted Sega Mega Drive instead of Genesis.
