Colecovision Gamelist XML



  • Hi All,

    I've downloaded a Coleco Rom pack and have all of the roms, boxart and video snaps but as there i do not have a gamelist the video snaps do not play.

    Does anyone have or can make a Gamelist XML I can use to get his working? Its a bit beyond my capabilities :(

    Thank you!



  • @dcm91 Third party images are not supported on this forum. Also please remove the reference to where you downloaded the ROMs from.

    If there is a problem with the image you are using then you should ask for support from the creator of that image.

  • Sorry, didn't mean to offend anyone. I'm not very computer literate, still learning my way around using forums...

    I have edited my request. I just love Retro-gaming and really need some help!

    Thank you



  • @dcm91 Scrape the games. This will create a gamelist.xml



  • @jonnykesh Thanks Jonny, I will try when i get home. I already have all of the Roms, boxart and video snaps in the correct folders. So if i scrape just Coleco it will place an xml in the Roms folder?



  • @dcm91 I really don't know where the gamelist.xml will be placed because I have no idea how this image is set up. These files can go in 2 places, within each system ROM folder or in /home/pi/.emulationstation/gamelists/systemname. Or at least that's where they go in the standard image. They could be absolutely anywhere on a custom image. You'll just have to try it and see.
