Sorting Roms into Genres
« on: September 10, 2013, 01:41 PM »
I posted this in the NES forum as well. Sorry if this is discouraged.

I prefer having roms sorted by genre. That way I can think 'shooter' rather than 'Truxton.' I can easily filter out sports games so I don't have to scroll past NFL 1947 - 1996. It also makes it easier to discover new games I haven't played before.

I couldn't find any automated tools to do this. So I put some together. These are small bat files that work with extracted GoodTools romsets. Put them in your rom directory and run them.

NES - http://srktt.com/files/nesgenre.bat
SNES - http://srktt.com/files/snesgenre.bat
Genesis - http://srktt.com/files/gengenre.bat
Master System - http://srktt.com/files/smsgenre.bat
PC Engine - http://srktt.com/files/pcegenre.bat

Any chance you still have these files?

Guess my new host doesn't like .bat files. Try this.

Thank you! I was trying to sort my Gen roms by hand and driving myself insane.

I like sorting mine by release date, it's kind of fun...sort of like making my own Retro Game Challenge, but without the old magazines.

Will these batch files work with SmokeMonster compilations?
