Made a batch file to sort your roms for those interested
« on: February 25, 2013, 08:35 AM »
I made 2 batch files that might help windows user to sort their Everdrive N8 rom folder. One of them can sort them in alphabetical folder (folder for each letter) and the other will sort them by Region and whether or not they're unlicensed, prototype etc... You can also sort them with the region/type batch file and then execute the alphabetical batch in each of the region folder to get sorting by region and then by alphabetical folder if you feel like it. Oh and the alphabetical batch file get moved to the ''0'' folder once it's done. I could have avoided this by looking only for *.nes file but I wanted to make it generic so it can be used with other type of file or roms if needed. Just put the batch file you want to use in a folder where all your roms are located and execute it.

Anyway, hope it will be useful to someone!

Wow that batch file is great! I just downloaded the No-Intro set (which is huge) put the region batch in it, and pow all sorted. Thanks for that!

FYI, the region script puts some non-USA games in the USA folder, since they contain "World" (example: Wai Wai World). I think putting this World line below the Japan line in the .bat file would fix it.

Will you be adding rom sorting to N8 ED os itself like most other ED carts?
