gamebase64 rom names

Sun Sep 04, 2011 11:21 am

hello ! to all

hope some one can help me
as most of you are aware the roms in the games folders for gb64 are a strange type of naming
is it possible to extract and rename all the roms to a conventional name

obviously i can use the ren command but i would need lists of the roms and original names

This uses the Screenshot name for game ZIP.
(Internal files are untouched.)

Run the batch from the GAMES directory.
if you want to use the new names from inside GameBase.
you must replace the mdb file.

I really would like to rename the files also but the multiupload link is no longer working.

Can someone give any advice how I can do this?

Thanks.

Use this at your own risk (on a backup of the collection).

This will rename the game files in the GameBase collection v8.
Example
"100KPYRA_00001_01.zip" = "100000_Pyramid,_The.zip"

Run the batch file from the GAMES directory, then replace the GBC_v08.mdb file with the one included GBC_v08r.mdb.

You will need to rename it, removing the "r".

Hi honoured member!

Thanks for your reply, I ended up writing a php script to extract each zip into a folder with the game name looked up from the mdb data.

I soon realised that the emulator I wanted to use (dingoo vice) doesn’t support zips, and there are multiple images per zip file making it difficult to rename the files.

Cheers!
