Hi all,

This is my first thread over here.
Most of the times I am on https://retropie.org.uk/forum/ busy with my project :
https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic...enerator-for-lr-mess-and-mame-standalone
With this project we are able to use mame and lr-mess much better in RetroPie.

Sometimes I find some issues that I can't fix.

So I tried to run pacmania for msx2 as softlist-name (hash => msx2_cart.xml).
Problem is that it will think that it's a file from msx1_cass.xml.

This is a command from the cli :
/opt/retropie/emulators/mame/mame -rompath /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/mame\;/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/msx2 -v -c -ui_active -statename msx2/"pacmania" hbf700p "pacmania"

Above command only works when I remove the other msx hash tables, except the msx2_cart.xml .

Is there a solution to this problem ?

To force loading from a specific softlist you can prefix with the name of the softlist; in this case, try using "msx2_cart:pacmania".

Thanks, that works indeed.

But why do we need to add "msx2_cart" to it to get it working ?

From my perspective it should :
- check all hash files
- compare the correct game with the sha1sum
- then run the correct game

Doesn't it work this way ?

It does, but when there are multiple software lists for a machine with same-named software one of them has priority. In this case the cassette list has priority.

Ok, so there is no other way around it.

Basically I have to generate multiple loaders with the multiple hash addons.

Thanks for explaining.
