How do you rename an existing Gamebase without losing any customized interface settings?

For example, say I have a Gamebase called "GB_EMU" and I want to rename it to "Purple Emu." I know I can rename the folder "GB_EMU" to "Purple Emu" and rename the .mdb file to match, but when I do, I lose all previous display customizations (extra fields, fonts, etc.)

Is there another method to administer Gamebase names?

I think those settings are stored in the registry.

if you know what your doing??
you could use REGEDIT and change the GameBase Name there also.

Yes, I was able to rename my Gamebases through the registry:

Code:
1. regedit.exe
2. Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GB64\GameBase\GameBase
3. Right-click keyname
4. Left-click Rename


The Gamebase directory, Gamebase .mdb file, and registry keyname entry must all match.
