Importing favorites from MAME
« on: February 15, 2020, 11:57:34 pm »
I have all my favorites saved in MAME. In the UI folder there is a Favorites.ini.
I go to Max Arcade Preferences, Then to Game Lists, Mame tab and go down to by Import (favorites.ini). I enter the path and click build list. Then I get the error message. "No games matched the criteria. A rescan of MAME roms may be necessary.
I have performed several rescans. Is there a way to import the Favorites.ini to the game list?

The import .ini feature is there to import Maximus Arcade's old MAME*.ini format, not MAME's favorites.ini format (which isn't a windows standard .ini file anyway.)

You'd have to find out what the old ini format looked like, and convert your favorites.ini file to that format.
