rom names help

Tue Apr 16, 2019 8:35 am

Hello all !

Hope some one can help me
as most of you are aware the roms in the games folders for gb64 are a strange type of naming
is it possible to extract and rename all the roms to a conventional name

Obviously i can use the ren command but i would need lists of the roms and original names

a simple batch could be used to rename all the game files using the screenshot filename.

Code: Select all

ren s1\SHERLHCL_19845_01.zip "Sherlock_Holmes_Club.zip"
ren s1\SHERLHOL_09367_01.zip "Sherlock_Holmes_(German).zip"
ren s1\SHERLHOR_23070_01.zip "Sherlock_Holmes_Returns.zip"
ren s1\SHERLMD0_14975_01.zip "Sherlock_Holmes_-_His_Most_Difficult_Case.zip"
ren s1\SHERLOCK_06764_01.zip "Sherlock_Holmes.zip"
ren s1\SHERLOCK_06765_01.zip "Sherlock_Holmes_(Textadventure).zip"
ren s1\SHERLOK0_06763_01.zip "Sherlock_-_The_Riddle_of_the_Crown_Jewels.zip"
*full game archive rename batch.

those NEW filenames, would also need to be pasted into the MDB if you still wanted them to work from GameBase.
