Mame32 Custom folders - just call me thick!!

Postby Patwos » Tue Nov 09, 2004 5:59 am

How does one go about getting the "Add to Custom Folder" in WolfMame to display any available folders?

I want to add the games I like to play regularly into a custom folder to make it easier to find the ones I used to play "back in the day"......

..... but for the life of me I can't work out how to get any folders to appear in the list when you choose the add to custom folder option......

Thanks,
Pat.

PS: I tried looking for a readme on the MamePlus and Mame32 sites but couldn't find anything leaping out at me that would explain this so apologies in advance if this is documented. :(

Just manually create a blank .ini file inside the folders directory eg. Favourites.ini. Then it will appear as a custom folder.

Thanks.... I knew I was being thick...... I'd created a real folder inside the folders directory..... now it seems obvious when you mention it to create an ini file with a name that I wanted the folder called.... :)

Of course it would be nice if they gave you a UI means of adding new custom folders as well.... :)

Quite easy to find games you like. Here is the link. Just download it and place it in your Folders File in the MAME directory... I downloaded the one for wolf 0.106
