There's a "ROM Status Export" feature which effectively exports the machine list. There's also the machine list database since several versions which you can use to easily extract/export whatever you want (see here).

thanks for the info, but ROM Status Export saves the complete list, which is unneeded.

i was talking about exporting visible game list, e.g. Favorites.

Well, as one never knows what might be interesting for whoever, I've only implemented what's important for me smile. So the answer is no, but all the information that you'd need for it is available in files produced by QMC2 (besides the machine list database, there's also a favorites list and the ROM status cache - both text files).

On the other hand, the ROM status export feature already supports most of what you want, it just doesn't honor "favorites" yet. So if you create a feature request for adding it to this feature I might consider it.

I've just added this to SVN r7756:
  • new: added two new options to the ROM status exporter which allow for exporting only favorites or tagged sets
It was the easiest way to do it and something I could do in time before "real life syndrome" hits me again smile.

thanks to oddi for current SVN build, i was able to test Favorites export feature.

it works brilliantly, i could effectively export my Favorites to text file. then i used Far editor for vertical select and delete, then trimming script for removing line end spaces. so i got needed output:

http://mamestuff.lowtrucks.net/MyMAMEFavorites.txt

thanks once again, Rene!

two small bugs:

1. cosmetic bug - HTML file should be probably renamed to just File, because when i select ASCII output format, it saves just plain text file.
2. i used c:\1.txt as path in HTML file field. it saved Favorites to 1.txt fine. then i changed it to c:\2.txt, and QMC2 is still writing to 1.txt instead of 2.txt.

one more question:

is it possible to set alternative title format for machine descriptions, where The is moved to the end? like this:

NewZealand Story (Japan, new version) (newer PCB), The

so it will be sorted by real first letter, and not T in the machine list.
