Import bunch of mame roms through a text fille


Recommended Posts

Maybe it has been asnwered before, couldn't find it though. I'm running Launchbox Premium version 7.11 (didn't buy a new license, so updating is no option).

I have an existing Mame setup in Launchbox with about 900 games, divided over 10 platforms (like Puzzle, Platform, Shmup's etc.). Recently I added about 350 games to the mame rom folder. Of course these games show up in Arcade64-0196 perfectly, after the audit, and now I also want to import these 350 additional games in Launchbox, at first in a 'general arcade platform' from where I can split them later over the different existing platforms. However, these additional rom files are not in a separate folder, they already are together with the other mame roms in the rom folder of Arcade64. Stupid, I know, and I don't want to handpick them and place them in another folder.

But I do have a textfile with all additional 350 rom names, so is there a way to import the 350 games in Launchbox from this textfile? Or is there another clever option?

BTW, I tried the option 'Scan for added roms' but then ALL roms show up, inclusing the ones already in Launchbox.
