[TOOL] BestArcade sorting tool



  • 4 ou 5 click et le romset est buildé :)

    @cissou ouais un peu plus que ça et surtout faut cliquer sur des trucs abscons super mal nommé avec une UX qui même il y a 15 ans avait 15 ans de retard, c'est vraiment une plaie ce soft



  • Super outil, bravo. J'espère que de nouvelles fonctionnalités vont arriver


  • Themer

    @anthony33 pourquoi pas, mais quoi comme fonctionnalités ? je suis ouvert aux propositions :)



  • Great tool...thank you for creating it.

    Request: Is it possible to only create CSVs without copying ROMs? I want to have the lists of best core per rom but plan on creating my own collections based on genre and will move ROMs manually.

    Thanks


  • Themer

    @johnodon yes this is actually pretty easy to do I will add it :)



  • Some observations/questions...

    I am using the FBA 0.2.97.44 DAT. My conf is as follows:

    exportDir = E:\Downloads\BestArcade-0.1\BestArcade\MySet
    fbaSet = Z:\ROMS\Arcade\FBA\FB Alpha 0.2.97.44 non-merged\roms
    mame2010Set = Z:\ROMS\Arcade\MAME\MAME_2010_full_nonmerged_romsets\roms
    mame2003Set = Z:\ROMS\Arcade\MAME\MAME_2003-Plus_Reference_Set_2018\roms
    keepLevel=0
    keepNotTested=0
    exclusionType = STRICT
    genreSubFolders=1

    Do the CSVs in the data folder ever get refreshed? I noticed that the all have dates from July 2018.

    If a ROM scores 3 for every emulator, does it use FBA as the default? (the question below is related)

    64street has the same score (3) for all sets. It was copied only to the FBA folder.

    • What do the errors below suggest? Is this the expected result and can these errors be ignored?
    • Is FBA used as the default emulator for all roms that have tie scores?

    Possible errors
    ERROR 64street should be exported for mame2003
    ERROR 64street should be exported for mame2010

    If I set 'keepNotTested=1', the tool will keep a copy of the rom for the emulators that were not tested even if the other emulator has a score of '3'. Is this expected or could we put some more control around this (i.e. if one emulator has a high score do not copy to the other emulator folders)?

    First, unless I made a mistake you seem to use the old version ?
    In latest 0.2 version conf.conf params for sets should be :
    fba_libretro =
    mame2010 =
    mame2003 =

    not fbaSet, mame2010Set and mame2003Set like you have ?

    This csv are the test sets, there is nothing to refresh at the moment, as the sets have been fully tested for a while, but once again I didn't upgrade to latest fba_libretro yet, so I didn't test all the games added in latest version.
    For me it doesn't make much sense to test the new fba now anyway, as new games are added to it every week, I will test them when fba_libretro 44 has a final version and when it is integrated into recalbox.

    64street has the same score (3) for all sets. It was copied only to the FBA folder.

    Because you used STRICT for exclusionType, use EQUAL if you want to keep all three of them (this and other options are in the readme and in comments in conf file)

    What do the errors below suggest? Is this the expected result and can these errors be ignored?

    I wouldn't pay to much attention to the errors, it's mostly checking for myself when I debug, and it's not very clean, I should hide or enrich it (the one you had shows it doesn't take exclusionType correctly into account)

    Is FBA used as the default emulator for all roms that have tie scores?

    Once again this is in the README, there are several parameters for prefered set like preferedSet which is set to fbaLibretro by default ;) This is only used in STRICT mode

    If I set 'keepNotTested=1', the tool will keep a copy of the rom for the emulators that were not tested even if the other emulator has a score of '3'. Is this expected or could we put some more control around this (i.e. if one emulator has a high score do not copy to the other emulator folders)?

    Yes this is expected, the purpose is specifically to keep non tested roms to see how they work ;)
    If you do no wish to keep untested roms, put keepNotTested to 0

    Ooops...the link at the top of this thread still points to v0.1 and that is what I downloaded. I'll start over. :)

    TY for the other answers.
