[good news] Favorites lists format must change
09/30/17 01:41 PM


huh, I just noticed that EmuCon doesn't add "media type" info in favorites lists. If you have two games using the exact same filename on the same system, but of different media types (one cartridge and the other floppy disk), EmuCon will set BOTH games as favorites.
This is wrong.

I figured out a way and wrote a function in EmuCon to update favorites profiles to the new format. It will not be done automatically at startup though. Users will have to do it manually. Emu Loader will NOT have this new function...

EmuCon "Hidden Games" feature also needs to be changed, but the current list will be lost. This is not a big deal as EmuCon have one one "hiddengames.ini" file to work with.

On another news, EL will no longer handle two favorites files for the same profile... one for arcade (EL) and one for console/computer (EmuCon). EL will merge both files into ONE big mixed list with games from all systems (EL and EmuCon).
More about this when EL v8.3 is released.
Also, this must be manually executed by the user. Emu Loader will not merge favorites by itself at startup.
