Moving Gamebase to another folder

Mon Jul 06, 2020 5:02 am

Hey all!
I had Gamebase with all systems setup on my C drive but tried moving the whole folder to a G drive and nothing is working.
I went in and changed all my paths and tried using GEMUS to adjust paths to emulators and now things are not looking good. I reinstalled Gamebase to the G folder and now my C drive Gamebase isn't working either. i tried reinstalling Gamebase back to C and it's still not working. Only Atari 2600 seems to be launching.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

With the 7z.dll included in original installer of GameBase v1.3
It does not unpack correctly with long folder names with spaces.

example
G:\emulator stuff\my gamebase collections\gamebase\

it is also reccomended to install gamebase to the root of the drive.

G:\gamebase\

and make sure the rezip folder is set on the root aswell.

G:\gbgame\

This will fix MOST install problems.
*I guess the working Atari2600 ROMs are unpacked. :wink:
