General Discussion & Help / Re: MAME/MESS XML and include files
« on: January 29, 2021, 11:02:35 PM »

1.As per the initial post in this thread when you say install as MAME.xml does that simply mean put it in the correct directory?  If so Where would that be? I added all the files to my meta directory but I just dropped them in as downloaded. I can't get include.text to work for collections (i.e.Atari Classics)?  This may be because I have all my roms in one directory and use .sub to create my games list per collection? I noticed the include works in Atari 2600 where there is no .sub being used.

2. I can't seem to get a custom playlist to work either, when I drop one in it still only cycles between Favorite and original list. Assuming this has to do with not having a matching xml in the correct directory?

3. Is there an easy way to make lists or subs that exclude clones?  I can control the game list by manipulating the .text into a .sub but man that creates a lot of duplicates from the existing collections hyperlists.

Sorry for the newbie questions I am very new to RetroFE and I think I'm mostly figuring stuff out.  I have learned a ton from Peter's posts!!
Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light on my silly issues.
