Editing an "gamelist.xml" file without it getting corrupted
Winklepicker last edited by
As the title suggests, what is the easiest method and best way for me to edit a gamelist.xml file?
I have tried opening it in "WinSCP", but everytime I make a change to it it becomes corrupted.
Is there an easy way I can add paths, change file names, add game descriptions without causing it to become corrupted?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you

@Winklepicker I just open mine in any text editor then save it back again.
In what way does it become corrupted?

@Winklepicker I just use sudo nano in the terminal on the pi itself for the file and edit entries. I have done all of my dreamcast games like that. Are you sure you are properly using the tags? I think the only time mine has had an issue is when I realize I have made a typo like forgetting the closing tag (ex- the other part of image tag) or don’t put the slash in one of the tags that need it.

Is there some sort of gamelist cleaner? I get blank entries, they won't show up but they do give errors, as well when it is set to parse only they do show up and I can't delete them.
I think the gamelist should be saved as UTF-8 possibly it doesn't matter.
Using WinSCP, are you using SCP protocol with the added Shell "- sudo", that shouldn't matter either because the rom folder is shared r/w.
What editor are you using? Try programmer's notepad
