Only one genre per game - metadata

Recommended Posts

HI guys,

I like to order my games by genre but so many games are included in several genres and it makes the navigation tedious.

Is there a way to force Launchbox when downloading metadata to only add one genre for each game (it seems that most of the time the last genre is the main one)?

Thanks.

Apparently not. But I insist this is a must-have. You can add a few tags to each game and that would allow you to browse in new ways your ever-expanding library. For example: Contra III @action @run'n'gun @Sci-Fi @post-apocalyptic @difficult. Clicking one or more of this tags would filter any other similar games, so you could see similar games like Turrican, etc.

I recommend submitting a ticket on bitbucket for the community to vote on adding this as a feature. The more the community votes for it the better to let Jason know how much it is really wanted. It may be worth seeing if someone has already submitted a request for this as well.

The problem with forcing a single genre on import is that for many games it would be subjective opinion on what genre a game would belong to.
