Specify emulator per game?

Sat Dec 27, 2014 6:36 am

Is there a way to specify an emulator per game? I use one gamebase for all of my emulators, and I need to use the .cue extension for two of them to play CD images. Right now, gamebase tries to open all .cue files in the first emulator set up in GEMUS. I'd also like to use separate emulators for MAME and Neo Geo games, but they both have to use .zip files. It would be helpful if I could specify which emulator each game should open with.

Using the "exact" same names you have used in the emulators.ini,
you can do this via the GEMUS (pressing F2 on the selected game)

emu=snes9x
emu=MAME
emu=neo-geo

also it's not a good idea to use ZIP as a file type.
you should always try and link the ROM file from within it, where possible.

MAME is an exception to the rule. ;)

Thank you, I knew there had to be a way, GameBase is so versatile!

I only specify .zip as a file type for arcade roms because the emulator requires it (MAME and Nebula).

I've been using GameBase for over 8 years and I probably only use 5% of its features. WHAT ELSE HAVE I BEEN MISSING?
