  1. To reiterate my previous post, this app is tangentially related to the clones worth playing list, in that it allows you to instantly and repeatedly convert a list of clones to parents // and or // remove parents That's it. Use it as you will, or won't ( :
  2. Whatever logic you choose. It's simple. For me, I use it for games like Pacman, 2p versions, and joystick versions of games. That's it. It's not complicated Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  3. The sole point to to automate repeating the process. Yardley and I use it every update. Takes 10 seconds to update our databases the same way, each update Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  4. My goal here isn't to contribute to the lists. Simply to make updating MAME, while using modified XMLs, less cumbersome Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  5. I would think the hard part is repeatedly generating XMLs with the same, limitless customisations Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  6. Once people test it, I will Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  7. I provided samples, but it's just a plain txt list like below: dkong tmnt simpsons xmen
  8. I also have a Genre remover, which does the same thing on a more aggressive Genre level. IE, it automatically removes the defined Genres from all XML. Very handy for removing Casino, Mature etc. I'll post about that ASAP
  9. Hi Guys, Video will follow, when I have time to create one. In the meantime... The GUI is very basic and it includes an additional parameter -- Hidden Games List -- that I don't think many others will need to use: To get started, define the following paramters: Database Folder - Path to a folder containing the MAME XML databases that you'd like to update Parents to Remove: - TXT file containing a list of MAME Parents you'd like to remove from all your XMLs in the Database Folder (see sample file for formatting) Clones to Keep: - TXT file containing MAME Clones you'd like to keep, by converting them to Parents, on all XMLs in the Database Folder (see sample file for formatting) Hidden Games List: - IGNORE THIS PARAMETER. This is an optional parameter that will not be required by 99% of users. Ignore it for now. Explanation to included when I publish the app After defining all paths, except for the Hidden Games List parater which should be left blank, click "Update Databases". The app do two things, quickly: 1. Remove any games defined in the Parents to Remove list 2. Convert to parents -- by emptying the "clone of" field -- any games defined in the Clones to Keep list The app stores your settings. After each update, simply do the following: 1. Download the latest XMLS 2. Put them into the Databases Folder 3. Run the app and click "Update Databases" Give it a test and let me know if you have any questions.

  10. I'll post back ASAP. New baby so life is a bit upside down. Video overview to follow plus download link
  11. I'd like to remind everyone that I made and app that can do these edits in a split second, after each MAME update. Still looking for beta testers but Yardley and I have used it for about a year with no issues... Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  12. Will command line / API programming of controllers be available on the controllers level, or the Port level only? Which, for simplicity sake, is to say... If we were only using Port1, would we be able customize the button programming for NES, SNES, and N64 controllers, independently of eachother? Or would we only be able to make changes at the Port, not controller, level?
  13. I'm not sure, as I only know xpadder. The equivalent of your controller layouts and per say mappings. Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks, but I'm looking for your joy2key folder/mappings Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  15. I can do that in xpadder. No mapper will solve the problem I'm describing, outside of being able to remap bliss box mappings. Can you send me your joy2key full folder and mappings? Want to take a look Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
