So I got creative (possibly retarded) and Decided, hey...I know how to get a list of pc games and a menu easily.

My theory

Create a directory with shortcuts to the games you want,
Set that as the emulator and rom path for a new emulator.
Name snap files same as the shortcuts.

So far that all worked, Gave me a menu
PC Games, then listed the shortcuts.

ie

Street fighter IV Arcade
Street Fighter X Tekken etc..

Now Problem is they dont launch.

when I had ssfIV alone i had the rom command as ssfiv.exe and had it pointed at the install dir.

so im wondering...in the command box...ie what to send to emaulator to run I tried [rom]

Which should technically run the shortcut given its the same name..but nope :)

anyways...is this stupid or is there an easier way without having to manually edit ini files etc?

cheers

If you're using .lnk files (Windows shortcuts) the path is:

CmdLine=""[RomPath]\[RomFile]""

Works great on my machine this way.

Let's not get carried away now! Lol!

There's an importable config for PC games that use the .lnk method. ;)

It is refreshing to see folks try instead of just asking though!
