RetroArch incorporates a ROM scanning system to automatically produce playlists. Each ROM that is scanned by the playlist generator is checked against a database of ROMs that are known to be good copies.
Where can I find a copy of this playlist? Do I need to rename the file name of each rom or the file name contained in the cue file for each game to ensure that it matches this ‘database’ of roms so that the playlists are generated. Also for thumbnails, I have to edit the name of each thumbnail if it doesn’t match the name that is listed in the lpl file? Even using markwkidd playlist buddy that seems like it would take a long time. What is the quick solution to all this? Are their rom sets already available that match the database of ROMs perfectly and the title of the thumbnails for each game so that we don’t have to edit on our own? Seems like the roms I find don’t match the retroarch database so no playlist is generated and the thumbnails obviously won’t work.
Is the information contained in the “core info files” or “databases” files that can be read with notepad or something?
