The settings.conf file in a collection defines the settings for that particular collection. See below for a list of configuration parameters that can be specified in your collection's settings.conf file.
|list.path||/collections/<collection name>/roms||Location of your roms|
|list.includeMissingItems||false||Include games in the include.txt even if the rom does not exist.|
|list.extensions||Comma separated rom extensions (e.g. zip,nes)|
|list.menuSort||false||Defines whether the items in a collection will be sorted alphabetically|
|list.romHierarchy||false||Defines whether the roms directory should be searched hierarchically. There is a performance hit by enabling this, so only use it when needed.|
|list.truRIP||false||Defines whether the roms directory should be searched hierarchically based on truRIP format. There is a performance hit by enabling this, so only use it when needed.|
|launcher||Specifies which launcher is used when a game is selected from the menu (reads from launchers/<launcher name>.conf)|
|metadata.type||<collection name>||Specifies the meta file used in the meta.db to pull additional information like manufacturer, year, genre, etc. from|
|meda.<filetype>||collections/<collection name>/medium_artwork/<filetype>||Overwrites the path used to pull medium artwork from|
|media.system_artwork||collections/<collection name>/system_artwork||Overwrites the path used to pull system artwork from|
All the settings above can take advantage of the following variables:
|%BASE_MEDIA_PATH%||The root directory where all artwork resides, defined by baseMediaPath in the global settings.conf file|
|%BASE_ITEM_PATH%||The root directory where all roms resides, defined by baseMediaPath in the global settings.conf file|
|%ITEM_COLLECTION_NAME%||The name of the current collection|
