Need help setting up Playstation game directory
« on: February 04, 2017, 04:01:28 PM »
Need help getting RetroFE to list/detect my PSX games when they are in subfolders (if possible). Here is my setup (will use FFVII as an example):

Bin & Cue folder
\collections\Playstation\roms\Final Fantasy VII (USA)\Final Fantasy VII (USA) (Disc 1).cue
\collections\Playstation\roms\Final Fantasy VII (USA)\Final Fantasy VII (USA) (Disc 2).cue
\collections\Playstation\roms\Final Fantasy VII (USA)\Final Fantasy VII (USA) (Disc 3).cue

Playstation collection settings.conf
list.includeMissingItems = false
list.extensions = cue
list.menuSort = yes
launcher = Playstation

Playstation lauchner conf (Playstation.conf)
executable = emulators\RetroArch\retroarch.exe
arguments = -f -L .\cores\mednafen_psx_hw_libretro.dll "%ITEM_FILEPATH%"

RetroFE will list my games if I dump all my Cue & Bin files directly in the roms folder. Maybe that is how it is meant to be. But if it can work with each game being in their own individual folders, i think I would prefer that? Thoughts?

Add the following line to the PlayStation's settings.conf:
list.romHierarchy = true

That's assuming you're running RetroFE 0.7.20; it was only very recently added.

hahahahah, i've just returned from Attract Mode to RetroFE and had to recreate my "dummy" cue files in the roots roms dir of PlayStation, 3DO etc, so i could get retrofe to see all the games that were in their own dirs... aaaahhhh 2 days of my life gone, haha the things we do for our hobby, that'll teach me for deleting them..

Nice one Pieter,
