"search" informations in the "version" field not possible yet?


Recommended Posts

Hello jason.
 The games with "version" field like the TOSEC roms are very useful,because they give a lot of information in the title.For example : pitfall (1983)(activision)(1a)
Is it possible to "search" (in the "search" field) several games with the informations given in the "version" field?
(For example : search all "(activision)" or all "(1983)" roms that have this info in the "version" field in order to display them)
Now,unfortunately, it seems impossible (the infos between ( ) can't be "searched")
That could be great in order to classify games very more easely and quicker!

Thanks very much!



(Another suggestion : could it be possible in the future to insert in launchbox a "favorite" button to display quickly favorite games of the current platform? Thanks,thanks)

Tools.  Audit Arcade. Click on the "region" header (to sort). Scroll till you see the ones you want changed.image.thumb.png.ef43bdc8bd8a26c656190c5052d429ce.pngTo change the default version, click the game title.  In the edit screen for that game, got to the Additional Apps tab, click (once) on the the version you want to use and click "Make Default".  This assumes you imported duplicates and they are combined. (Obviously I didn't import duplicates, hence no 'additional apps' shown.) image.thumb.png.e021ff704af0a743d867b527372ba4ef.png 

If you have a lot to change, it'd probably be easier to re-import your MAME set making sure you select preferred region.

That'll work. It's not the region, but rather the Revision/Version. For some reason the MAME importer marks about 10 USA/NA games as "Hispanic" when there's a good USA copy available. Many of the SF/MVC games. 

Still, a search of the Revision/Version would be awesome.
