New PC, Old HD

Thu Aug 06, 2020 5:35 am

Hi guys,
I have a problem :cry:
I change my laptop last month. I always used my gamebase folder on a external HD (I only install program in C:).
Now I installed gamebase on my new pc and all work fine. I seen everything, games, extra, screenshot ecc... all is in correct place after my folder configuration...
The problem is the emulator part. I have all "emulator.ini" file in the emulator system folder (external HD) but it seem isn't found by games.
I installed gamebase 1.3 and gamebase 1.3 update.

Any idea to solve this problem? :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Thanks to all

you only need to install 1.3 full.
the 1.3 update is required for updating a very old v1.2 install.

GameBase is not a portable app, and can not be installed on an external drive.
it uses the windows registry.

It can be installed on a 2nd Internal Drive or partition.

The emulators.ini and gamebase.mdb must be on the same drive

C:\GameBase\GameBase.exe
C:\GameBase\Amstrad CPC\Amstrad CPC.mdb
C:\GameBase\Amstrad CPC\emulators.ini

to save space...
all games, extras, music can be stored and ran from your external drive.
most new emulators are portable and should work from the external drive with the correct paths in the emulators.ini

EmulatorPathFile=x:\Emulators\WinAPE\WinApe.exe

the rezip function will no doubt have problems extracting to your external drive.
always try to use this...
c:\gbgame\0\
