  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
  16. Doesn't fix my issue, which has little to so w xpadder directly... unless you can do multiple layouts per system Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  17. Genuinely nog trying to be critical of anyone. Just looking to help. Will do Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  18. I've read the live doc. I'd love to chat with you to try to assist cleaning up some ID the manual /docs. There's some gaps that could be easily addressed. The functionality has so much potential, I'm sure a lot of it is just needing a bit better explanation. Would love to volunteer to help address some of the confusion. Shoot me a PM Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  19. intigod... xpadder for xbox360 and gamepads. Ultimarc MinIPAC is in keyboard mode. Complicated, yes, but necessarily so to do all that I have it setup to do. The hurdles I'm trying to overcome are basic though Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  20. Respectfully, the manual needs some additional info. There's not enough info or context to make sense if it. Based on that description, the only benefit is the ability to press XBOX guide button? Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  21. That's why Bliss-Box as a 360 mapping option. 1. Where is an explanation of the feature, how it works, how to enable it etc 2. I don't think this will help, as the button mappings would still be different, no? Or are you saying that it essentially mirrors RetroArch's 360 mappings??? Sent from my HTC6535LVW using Tapatalk
  22. Thanks! This all makes sense. Are you not using XBOX360 controllers, as well? If you use RetroPad mapping for BlissBox, it creates issues with XBOX360, since you're changing that mapping... Things get complicated, quickly... My goal is as follows: 1. RetroArch with keyboard mappings for my arcade control panel 2. XBOX360 autoconfig mappings as standard gamepad controller 3. 8BitDo SNES controller for SNES/NES systems, mapped via xpadder, with RetroArch autoconfigs disabled to prevent conflicts 4. BlissBox NES/SNES/GENESIS etc controllers, mapped via xpadder, with RetroArch autoconfigs disabled to prevent conflicts The issues I'm running into are: - Using the custom firmware to stabalize the ports complicates things immediately, because each port has a different USB input name and thus, a single xpadder profile folder won't work. - To solve that, I created xpadder profile folders, in my xpadder system folder (IE Super Nintendo Entertainment System), for each controller (IE 4PLAY PORT, 4PLAY 2, 4PLAY 3, 4PLAY 4) - Using this logic, then each folder would contain one "working" profile and 3 blanks. IE 4PLAY PORT's p1 mapping is active, 4PLAY 2's p2 mapping is active, 4PLAY 3's p3 mapping is active, 4PLAY 4's p4 mapping is active. All other mappings are blanks. This SHOULD work. But it doesn't. Instead, RocketLauncher is assinging the profiles in reverse. I'm still uncertain of the cause of this problem. - As a workaround to the above problem, I created identical profiles for p1, p2, p3, p4 in the 4PLAY PORT folder using the p1 mapping, identical profiles for p1, p2, p3, p4 in the 4PLAY 2 folder using the p2 mapping etc etc. This works, but it's absurdly complicated. From there, the other issues I'm trying to solve are: 1. Using the above logic, how can I customize the layouts between different joypads. For example, the SNES controller's buttons B and A don't work for Nintendo Entertainment System. Instead, buttons Y and B do. This is obviously due to my xpadder layout for the 4PLAY profiles, but the problem is, we can only use one global profile, since the USB device name is the same, no matter what original controller is plugged into the BlissBox... PHEW... that was a lot of typing... Thoughts?
  23. I have tried using the jumper method, to fix the issue, as well. No progress...
  24. Also, after flashing the custom firmware successfully and experimenting for the last 24 hours, my Port1 just completely disappeared. WTF. Reflashing, following the instructions (press button, plug USB, select firmware and ho They worked before, and after. Then, the next day, the Port1 disappeared
  25. I have like 100 systems and have yet to get the BlissBox functioning to the point that it's worth switching. Once I get the BlissBox going, I'll consider it. Think I need to RMA this one, as Port 1 appears to be bad -- based on the troubleshooting steps provided. Are you able to do unique layouts, per controller, per system? IE for Nintendo Entertainment System: NES controller layout SNES controller layout
