ROMbrary is a school project I made. It's pretty much like your typical MP3 library but made for the ROM collector in mind. It sorts and displays your ROMS and emulators in one convenient place. From there, you can launch the games if the emulator used supports command lines. IT IS NOT AN EMULATOR, you will need to get these and the games(ROMS) on your own. It also have a built in internet explorer browser that navigates automatically to find walkthroughs, faqs, cover art, manuals and a bunch of info....
NOTE: I don't know if there are legal or copyright issues in automatically linking to wikipedia with a program or reading their HTML code. If you know something about that, please e-mail me Install:
Extract the ROMbrary.rar archive in a new folder with winrar .
Extract the Wikipedia lists in the same folder..
Launch the ROMbrary.exe file
I made "special" import routines for NES, AMIGA and Lynx games lists wich have a different layout that the main routine could not process.
So when updating these lists, you will have to rename the htm files EXACTLY like they are in the downloaded archive. You will also see lots of crap in the wiki's list for these platforms: years, publishers names etc...
Use the quick links menu to browse to various sites and find info about the selected game (see below).
Address bar: Double click to browse to the address.
Save button: Saves your lists and paths to the DATA.txt file. You can manually edit this file, make sure you don't change the tags names, only one tag per line and keep the correct sequence:
..... as much [emu] [emuPath] as you need
......as much [Fav] as you need
[Platform] *new paltform
When a game is selected in the wiki's list, you can launch searches on 4 different web sites besides Wikipedia to get further info on that game.
When you click one on the site in the menu, the program will browse to the web site and make a search with the game's title.
Good for walkthrough and codes
