Issue looking for media after checking for new ROMS

Recommended Posts

There are thousands even though only a few ROMS were added, but they are not ROMS. I think possibly from Mugen and Sega Ring. Not sure though.

Tried to remove a few, but stops responding.

It takes a while when you have a lots of files, wait it out or... when you're selecting games to add to LB, use the search in the dialog box to pick specific type files only. ex *.bat, or *.zip, or *.bin, etc.

wasn't adding games, just missing media. Not sure why it is coming up with all those as ROMs? Was using "Download metadata and media..."

I'm confused here, @dbinott. The dialog above is the import ROMs dialog, but you say you weren't adding games? The dialog you showed above is only for adding games.

@Jason Carr Ya, i'm dumb. Been doing so much, can't keep track. It was for checking for added ROMs. Having said that, why would it show all that?

I see. If it's showing all that stuff, it means that there's files with those names in there somewhere. It's not a perfect process because it can't always know what's a game and what isn't. It should do a decent job, but it looks like you've run into a situation where it can't identify the files, and so it thinks they're games. Are you trying to do it for all platforms or just one? I would suggest going platform-by-platform; that should help narrow it down.

ya, it was for ALL. Will try your suggestion. Thanks.

Have you ever thought of tying the forum login to a purchased license so you know which people are licensed?

Yes, I've considered it in the past, but it hasn't been a priority. We support both free and premium users, so it's not a major concern for me.
