Custom path for meta conf files?
« on: July 07, 2019, 11:06:15 PM »
Not sure if this is implemented.  I like to keep my metadata/media files separate from the frontend. I have everything working except the .conf metadata files only seem to work when they're within a collection's file structure in RetroFE.

Is something like this possible?

media.info    = %BASE_MEDIA_PATH%/%ITEM_COLLECTION_NAME%/info

Meta information is embedded in the meta.db file. It does have a fixed location from which to get the information to put in it though, but it's only updated when new files appear in the meta directory. I'll give your request some thought though; should be implementable in the general settings.conf file, though considering how small they are I'm not sure what advantage it brings to you. :)

Hmm, that's a good point.  And I guess there's no point separating the meta from RetroFE if the format is unique to it.
