Import Rom bug

Hi everybody,

i think i found a bug in the import rom section, when the files to import are a huge number; here what i've found:

I've a Sega Saturn folder with 21185 games in it, i've set Mednafen as Emulator then I renamed the folder with the rom files as "Sega Saturn" and i moved it into the LaunchBox/Games folder;

i started the Rom Import routine, choosing "Add folder" and selecting the Launchbox/Games/Sega Saturn that i moved before.

Choosing the option "use the files in their current location", at the "Ready to Import" window, Launchbox couldn't find ANY rom to import !

After several attempts, I tried to move the Sega Saturn folder outside the Launchbox/Games, in order to easy find it I placed in the root directory of my hdd (D:\Sega Saturn), so i re-started the Rom Import selecting the D:\Sega Saturn folder and, this time, choosing the "Copy the files in my Launchbox Games folder", THIS time Launchbox found ALL the games and I could start to import them.

Please note that this 'bug' happens only when the rom files are "a lot" I don't know exactly the number but if you try with a folder with about 100 files it works perfectly in any case.

It is also quite IMPOSSIBLE to remove the extension you don't want to add at the  "Ready to import" window; if you select, for example, .bin files and the press ESC in order to remove them, the program "freeze" for a very long time. I waited 4 hours in this state and then i had to force quit Launchbox.

I use Windows 10 64bit version 1909 build 18363.535 on i7 3,40 Ghz and 8 Gb Ram.

I hope this can help.

Cheers.

The easiest way to import systems that use cue+bin is to just go to the folder and use the windows explorer search to search *.cue, highlite them all and drag and drop onto Launchbox.

Hi neil9000, thank for your reply. You have absolutely right about the numer of games, the number is referred to files in the folder, sorry, my mistake !

About the cue+bin solution you said, i've tried several times but i surely do something wrong because it doesn't work. When you say "drag and drop onto Launchbox" you mean onto the Import window ? Because i did it in that way...

You can just drag and drop any file onto Launchbox which will automatically start the import wizard for the files you dropped. So just highlite all your saturn .cue files and drag them onto Launchbox which will start the wizard then just continue it as normal.
