Hello, I have a question about retroarch’s list. It’s better to use JSON format for retroarch’s list, or to process six lines of text separately, not in JSON format. Also, I have a common text for list files. I don’t know which operation retroarch has automatically converted the list into JSON format. I don’t know where this operation is. Please let me know.
settings > playlists > save playlists using old format. When it’s ON, it will use the old non-JSON format. Otherwise, it will convert playlists as soon as it opens them.
The JSON format is less fragile and more extensible. The old six-line format would completely break if any line is missing/out of place, and there’s no way to add additional features.
