XBLA (Microsoft Xbox 360 Live Arcade) Rename Scripts

Recommended Posts

Ok so this uses Bulk Rename Utility and I think it works pretty well.   

This file will work on any file that is named the title id for Xbox 360 or Xbox 360 Live Arcade

These instructions will work on any set that is in jtag format where you have multiple fiolder structure followed by one file.

I attached a pdf with this manual with included pictures

Step 10: Change Append Folder Name (9) with the following options Name: prefix Sep. ( Levels 2.  Your folders should look like this.  As you see I expanded my name and new name just to show you how it renames it.  Basically it is adding the title id as the first 8 characters of the file name and then a space and a (

The TXT file is missing, has any new method come about easier than this?

I get no import for the XBLA games using the import wizard, the files seem to have no extension at all.

Tried to manually drag and drop a game to import and that worked, though it still didn't give it the correct name even after I said "use folder name"

Also Bulk Rename is really great, I used to use it alot.  But I wanted to bring awareness to another great free program that I have been using more called PowerRename, its part of the PowerTools from Microsoft.
It has much of the same power but is a bit more user friendly.
