Memory cards, file extension limitation (and more)
12/30/17 02:00 PM


I just realized that some games use different file extensions for memory card files.
Emu Loader only supports .mc? extension, exclusively for PSX system.
I'm fixing that, but I think you can use any file extension you want, MAME doesn't complain about it...

That's not all. EL already detects what games support memory cards and the memcard slots count. Luckily, the -listxml output gives you the supported file extensions. PGM2 games can have three official file extensions though (as per "src\mame\machine\pgm2_memcard.h" source): .pg2, .mem, .bin
This will be useful for the "Run Game With Extra Parameters" feature (games popup menu), where you can select existing memcard files.
Maybe I should add a "All Extensions (.*)" in the select memcard file button if the file you want doesn't appear in the memcard files list ?

The file arcade\games\mame_memcard_support.ini will be updated to list MAME's officially supported file extensions.

Some games can have four (4) memcard slots (PGM2 machine). I'll have to update the frontend to support that (only 2 slots).

To fix it, Emu Loader always use mamedir\memcard\ folder as the default and only folder for memory cards. And you can't change that.

That's all for now.
