Batch Mode - Datfile Folder duplicate subdirectory
« on: 31 December 2016, 18:10 »

I don't know if I have something configured incorrectly or if this is a bug...

First, I load new dat files in batch mode with no rompaths set. I set the rompath naming option to be "Datfile folder". Then when I run the scan, the last rompath subdirectory is duplicated in the path.

For example:
Dat file: /datfiles/Console/NES/datfilename.dat
Rom path set: /Console/NES/NES

Any idea if there is an easy fix to this issue?

Update: After tinkering with a few other options, it looks like this may be working as intended according to the description... but I cannot think of a scenario where this is useful. I think its much more useful to just mirror the datfile directory structure instead of tacking on an extra subdirectory.

Unless there is a setting I am overlooking, the only other option looks like renaming all of my datfiles to the appropriate subdirectory name and using the "Datfile file" option instead.

Well....yes...the double naming is not wanted. Should get fixed for the next version... Until then, you can select in batch mode / misc tab: "for default naming use: DatFile Folder" (the line above "for rompath naming use") which will solve the double naming for you already.
