    All the games with a “&” symbol in the name are translated as “& a m p ; ” in my lists.

    For example: “Quiz & Dragons” becomes “Quiz & a m p ; Dragons”.

    Is this a known issue, and is there a cure (besides scraping)

    Sorry about the spaces, the forum is doing the right thing and does hide the amp; after the & symbol.

    in the gameslist file, just change your “&” to “& a m p ;” (remove the spaces between characters) and it will appear as an & in emulation station
