Issues with Softlists rom/chd and clrmame
« on: 08 May 2016, 08:00 »

now after 3 years I jumped in again at mame and I now see that softlist is now added

in which dir I put the softlist roms/chds and how to tell clrmame how to search or check
atm clrmame wants each softlist rom in an own dir which is already like /roms/softlist/name/game.zip etc
when I try autoassign everything get assigned to /roms/ and clrmame will stop with unique path required for each name

real dunno how to do

Software list support can be achieved via 2 ways.

1) use one profile per software list...so you simply load the single softwarelist xmls like datfiles and handle them as a normal collection...with rompaths for that one list etc.
2) the more complex way is to import them directly from mame. then you have to setup a rompath per software list and use the systems picker to assign them correctly. The auto assign of course only works if your folders already contain files for each list (otherwise it can't know which path belongs to which list). The paths have to be unique for each list.

I guess this is case 2 but where to put them so clrmame can autoassign?

Autoassign scans your setup rompaths and counts the sets it finds. If it finds e.g. 1000 sets for software list "xyz" in rompath "ABC" and 1000 is the highest count, rompath "ABC" is assigned to the software list "xyz" and so on.
If you have empty rompaths, everything is assigned to the 1st rompath of course.
