I messed up...backup possible

Recommended Posts

I messed up big time.  Luckly I had not gotten that far into my build that i don't mind starting over if i have to.  I was trying to use the latest version with the mame playlists.  I must have done something wrong because i ended up with a ton of new lists under "Platform", when I was trying to just create them under "Playlist".  Is there a way to reverse this without having to go through 8 hours of re-importing all the roms?

Yes, you can fix this in 2 different ways.

Way #1: Go through your platforms list and right click and edit each playlist and change the category to what you want it in.

Way #2: Close Launchbox, go to your Launchbox\Data\Playlists folder and delete the playlists. Update Launchbox to the latest beta just uploaded today and then under Tools, Create Missing Arcade/MAME Playlists. This should generate them all in the Playlists category.

If you had to do another import you would be able to save a lot of time but deselecting all the media since that doesn't get removed from you setup if you remove your games.

There are so many options in this program, I keep stumbling across things just as I think i have it figured out.  Glad I didn't have to start over.  Thanks for pointing me in the right direction and for the tip about the media.
