Bulk Set Folder Path to UNC

Recommended Posts

Moved my external HDD off the PC and attached to my QNAP NAS. The HDD contains ROMS but have LaunchBox locally on the PC still. The idea is to share the ROMs between multiple devices. Trying to use the "Change ROMs Folder Path For Selected Games..." but the folder dialog does not allow typing paths (\\nas\roms) and the NAS is not discoverable under "Network". Can we use UNC paths? It seems you can type a path for a single game in its edit dialog, not seeing how to do this in bulk though.

 

Hoping I am just missing something simple here. Thanks a lot!

I used Notepad++ to replace all the paths in the XML files located at "LaunchBox\Data\Platforms". This seems to have done the trick and was pretty easy. Still would be nice in the future if the GUI tool would allow manually choosing a UNC path.

Thanks for the great frontend!

There is a an option in the Tools menu to "Change ROMs folder path" though I have no idea if you can use it for the path you wanted to set it to, I have no way of testing it myself.

only lets you pick at the folder level so if it isn't listed under network you wouldn't be able to add it with change ROMs folder path. I have a similar setup but use Windows Server 2016 Essentials so I can see the computer under my network.
