- None of the `<path/> were written for Atari 5200/800. This might be because it's a special case. Of all of the systems I have for the RetroPie, this is the only one that you can't ZIP the files. All 5200/800 images I have are in BIN format.
Yep. The script was only trying to find
.zip. I've made it search for
.bin too. Do you have other extensions?
- Folders for other systems are being added to "atari2600_gamelist.xml". (I know why this is happening. All of my folders.txt files still say the information for the Atari 2600).
Exactly. The synopsis.txt files must be accurate. In this case, the problem is in the
- With the Atari 5200/800, I'd like for them to all write to atari5200_gamelist.xml. I don't include a lot of 800 games in my collection and rather than have two entries for it in the system I have all of the roms and media in the 5200 file structure, so I was wondering if we could maybe do somthing about putting those two scripts together. If that's too much of a hassle, no worries. I can just manually combine them when I'm done.
The script puts every entry on its own platform gamelist.xml. Do they use the same emulator in RetroPie? Anyway, if you want to see atari 800 games in the atari 5200 you'll have to combine manually, as you said.
I had a few ideas, such as creating all of the gamelist.xmls for all existing systems one after another without having to be there to put in the next command.(or from a list I could create in a file).
You can give everything in only one command line. Like this:
./Used2BeTXT /path/to/atari2600/synopsis/*.* /path/to/nes/synopsis/*.* /path/to/megadrive/synopsis/*.*
I was also thinking that we could do a
--no-desc but with all of the Artwork folders, and then there could be a script that would easily change all of the entries to point to a different piece of artwork (ie: displaying action shots for all of the games instead of Boxart).
I've added the
--image option. Then you can do:
./Used2BeTXT --no-desc --image 3dbox /path/to/atari2600/synopsis/*.*
And the generated gamelist.xml will have the
<image> pointing to the 3D Box art.

It's not fast if you just wanna change this field on an existing gamelist.xml. But if you just wanna do that, you don't need a script. You just need a basic knowledge about
sed command. I'll leave this task with you. ;-)
