Can I order MAME games by year or custom name?
« on: November 24, 2022, 07:35:27 AM »
Hi guys - trying to display games in a collection by a specific game order.

I would rename the games but the majority are MAME.

Tried fiddling with both all.txt and include.txt but neither seem to affect the order in which the games are listed.

Searched the heck out of this but haven't found a solution.

Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

Okay - I have a solution that works for my teeny 5 game menu.

Ultimately I create a sequentially named bat or lnk file for each game and run these via a launcher that uses cmd.exe

This is obviously too great a PITA to do in great numbers but I thought I'd mention it in case it meets anyone else's limited needs.
