MAME/MESS XML and include files
« on: December 28, 2016, 12:25:14 PM »
You can find the latest MAME/MESS XML and include files for RetroFE in the download section.
For RetroFE, simply install mame_full.xml as MAME.xml (or Arcade.xml, or whatever name you use for your MAME collection), and rename the include file of your choice to include.txt in that collection. Don't forget to delete meta.db so RetroFE will add the latest information to your meta database.

Sure, I already mark those anyway. I could add that in the genre section.

I wanted to play Strider 2, but it wasn't on my set, so I checked the includes and it's not in there. The zip name is strider2, and not even the most general no clones include ("include_no_clones.txt") has it. How come? I'm gonna guess there are other not-clones games missing so just adding "strider2" to my include is only a temporal fix.

If it's not on the list, it's because it's still marked as not working. I can have a look at the current status to see if it should be included, but that may include a lot of non-working games.

Current status:
      <driver status="preliminary" emulation="preliminary" color="good" sound="imperfect" graphic="imperfect" savestate="unsupported"/>

I swear I had answered this! So I was surprised to see that the game is listed as not-working, since it's very enjoyable as it is unless something happens at a later stage (only  ever played the first two ones). Any chance you could make a list with the not-working games? Hopefully only the semi-working ones, if that's a thing, cause I wanna check them one by one, but I don't wanna try completely unplayable games (although if there's not other classification than "not-working", I don't mind).

There's an include_full.txt file that contains all games, including the non-working games.

Yeah but I wouldn't know which ones are not-working. I wanted to temporarily use a list of only not-working games and test them one by one (maybe report back which ones I found playable in case anyone cares).

I can run a diff for you to create such a list if you want me to. 😀 It's not that hard really.

Yeah I actually don't know how these lists are made at all haha. However you can help it'd be appreciated, I bet some of these unplayable games are pretty enjoyable as they are.
