Control Over Local Media

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys - I have an entire set of media (including from EmuMovies) already downloaded for a complete MAME set.  I'd like to not have LaunchBox download everything again, rather want to point it to those folders for each asset.  Sorry if I'm missing something, but is there a way to do this?  I'd like to import only the game titles themselves into LB and then add all of the media from local folders.


Thanks!

After creating the Arcade platform and importing just the games, right-click the Arcade platform name in the left column, select Edit, then click on the Folders tab. You can point the different categories to different folders there.

Thanks so much, but I'm missing the folder tab for some reason.  Looks exactly like your screen-grab, less the folder tab.  

Any ideas?  Thank you again!

EDIT - Check that!  I was in Platform Category and not Platform.  All set and thanks again!

So, follow-up question...  The set I have has multiple images, sometimes in each category.  For instance, 1941 has several advertisements...  Is there a way to include them all?  

Also, I have both the themed videos and hi-res ones.  In the LB options, I see that it gives an option to prefer the themed ones, which works when they are both selected manually per game.  Is there a way to pull them both in this way?  It seems like this will only allow for a single folder selection for "videos" rather than multiple, then to prefer the themed ones.

Thanks again!
