feature request rom directory enhancments

Postby spudgunman » Fri Oct 24, 2008 8:01 am

could I put in a feature request for recursive directory searching option for ROM directory

for instance I have roms like

SNES
../USA
../Japan

it would be nice if wahcade just found them all, (even cooler if it made lists for them each)

Also multiple rom types, such as in gameboy that might be .gc or gx for gameboy color and gameboy orginal b/w but all run off the same emulator

so for file type - ext1; ext2; ext3 ....

I have a similar issue that I have roms that are PAL, NTSC, and NTSC-J. xmess requires a parameter to be passed to each Emulator. Its put me in a situation where I have to create multiple instances of the same emulator.

Resurrecting an old thread... As a result of fixing Bug #309330 I think I can very easily implement recursive directory scanning for roms. Would this cause anyone a problem if I enabled this as the default behaviour?

Cheers,

Actually, on further reflection this is more complicated than I thought. I'll leave it disabled for now...

This is now a blueprint.

I'd like to add to this, support for removable media detection. I now use pmount and udev to detect my Retrode, and to WahCade, Removable Media is just another directory. Removable Media should count as anything in /media/, for example, /media/usbstick, /media/Retrode /media/sdiocard and it would be nice.
