I have pifba setup as my Neo-Geo emulator. The game list auto-populates game titles when it loads (so mslug4 becomes Metal Slug 4). The problem is, some of these names include long foreign titles too. So i hit select and edit the meta data, shorten the name, and save. At this point my list looks nice, short normal names. When i reboot the pi, Emulationstation renames all of these roms back to the long Mame names.
My question is, where on the Pi does it store this long list of names that automatically updates mame and pifba game names? I wasn’t connected to the network the last time this happened, so it must be local on the device. Anyone know? I figure just edit this to shorten the names so when it auto renames everything, it does it correctly (or incorrectly, given your view on proper naming, i personally want it short).
This is a bug with the RC1 version of emulation station. You need to open the options menu and select ‘quit from emulation station’. This will take you to the CLI but will save the game list. I think Aloshi is going to fix this.
