Sorting Games into Genres
« on: September 09, 2013, 12:07 AM »
I am not a huge fan of massive rom lists. I've found that I greatly prefer them sorted into genres. I couldn't find any tools that offer this for the NES.

Here's a small bat file that will chew through a GoodNES set and copy files to sub directories. Just put it in the same directory as an extracted GoodNES set and run it.

I need to do the same for Genesis. It just took me several hours to get this together. Let me know what you think.

I beefed this up to include other regions and unlicensed games. Feel free to re-run it. I did another one for Genesis as well.

Hi everybody.

That is amazing! Please do Master System when you have time. It doesn't have many games.
