ROM management- is there a one key way hide game?

Recommended Posts

So I am messing with Atari ST and Amiga games.  Many have multiple disks.  It is a mess so I am hiding the disk 2-n disks.  It is tedious.  I select game edit, then check hide, then OK.  There are even more screens to go through if I want to hide 2 or more disks (bulk).   Is there a way to just highlight the game then hit a key and have it hide without going through all of the dialog screens?  It sounds trivial but when you are doing this for a few thousand games it gets to be a lot of work.

There’s a box you tick before the rom import process that combines multi disc games into one. If you have 1000’s in yer collection it would probs be quicker to delete the lot and re-import?

Agreed, if they are named correctly they should combine on import. You could also try doing it in bulk by clicking  the platform then going to Tools/Consolidate roms for Name of Platform.1909376314_Screenshot(92).thumb.png.4c2929ea74676328f6321cfb43c31a9b.png

It will know which one to load when you do this such as know to select the game with (Disk 1 of 3) in the title?

I found it much easier to use WHDLoad games instead of individual disks. You dont need to switch disks and the games load much quicker.
