Is there an easy way to compile custom RDB?


#1

I want to use a custom database so my ps1 games that are named slightly different from the normal database still have corresponding information associated with them. I personally feel having the (USA) tag on every game is a bit ridiculous. I’ve created a personal dat file, now i just need to compile it.

This requires compiling a program to compile another file. I never made it past “Hello World” in any of the programming books I’ve read. Fairly simple scipting I can do. The readme shared above is beyond my understanding.

In that case you might be better off editing your playlist files with a text editor to remove those parts you don’t want to see. The playlist format is pretty straightforward: https://docs.libretro.com/guides/roms-playlists-thumbnails/

I can do that fine, but then it breaks the connection to the information database. I guess I’ll just have to do without that part.
