Softlist location
04/28/17 05:33 PM


Where do people usually keep softlist stuff? In a folder called softlist? I still have 2 installations that pretty much match, except one has /MESS/roms and the other Mame32UI/roms. It's kind of silly to have them separate, but I'm not so sure it's a good idea to simply merge both /roms folders.

Also, over the years of updates, and trying different frontends and such, I seem to have let my folders get out of control. Does the current MAME self-extractor have all possible folders in it, or are there optional items that work out of their own folder? I ask because I started placing all .dat files in /dats, but grabbing the latest history.dat just now, it's pre-packaged in a /history folder (and I don't seem to be using a /history folder).

Also in my MESS directory, I have a few cheat.7z files in the root for different systems. Should I leave them as .7z in the root or drop them into /cheats or extract them into /cheats?

It seems I'm always out when the major changes take place and now I'm lost, with 1 final long deployment ahead of me shortly. Edit: and I'm aware that at least most of the current folder system for extra files has been in place for quite a while, I just never touched MESS much before the merger and didn't follow all the questions when it happened...


Just broke my personal record for number of consecutive days without dying!
