Sub Sorting on BigBox [MAME]

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Not sure if i can do this but, when i added the MAME romset, Launchbox categorizes it under the Arcade tab (Action Beat-em-up, etc).

When using bigbox i get a main Arcade menu for all of them, and when i select it it displays all of the roms and no categories, any way i can select árcade and jump to a sub menu with the categories instead of the full rom list?

Thank you

I'm not at home right now so I can't test this to confirm it.  But I believe what you need to do is change the bigbox default startup view to platform categories instead of platforms.  Then you should see Arcade and Playlist.  The sub cetegories you're referring to are in the playlist section.   If I remember correctly, that should do the trick.

Thank you for the reply:) 

That is what i want, the only thing diferent i wanted to do, was leave everything else in the main menu, just have the arcade  one that moves to the diferente sub menu and all others directly.

Something like this:

Arcade

      -Namco

     - Midway

     - Neo-Geo

     -  ...

Nes

Snes

Genesis

...

Something like that.. when i enable the categories, the other get moved under the Consoles category, any way to avoid that and make it exclusive to Arcade one?

 

Thank you so much:)

Go to tools manage platform. Edit a platform go to the parent tab uncheck console and just check root you will of course have to do so for each console individually but it will give you what you want in the platform categories section.
