Anybody know how to do this?  I would love to have a cross platform favorites wheel with all my favorite vs, co-op, and party games to make the drive more accessible to friends.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to make a few wheels with specific roms from different systems? This may give you a head start:

I know Chris, has put together a few wheels spanning across systems (Spyro/Pinball Collection) that you can look at, as an example.

A good example is the D:\Arcade\Database\Pinball Collection\Pinball Collection.xml file.

Create a xml called "Party Games.xml" and copy the format from the file above. Make sure you add "Party Games.xml" to your main menu.xml so you see it on the wheel.

Thanks,

This looks pretty slick too, I think the add-on is already on the drive.

Hahah you actually pointed to my reddit post where i answered it there Smile

Note, it's a multi-system wheel, and, it just adds an "exe tag" telling it what system to run. You can view any of the multi-system collection wheels like Sonic, Mario, Zelda etc to see how it's done.

However, we DO have HyperXMLSpin on the drive. With HyperXMLSpin, you can make any custom wheel you want. Enter a search term, get all the results. Remove anything you don't want in those results and add anything that was missed; and then click "make a wheel" and it'll make your own custom wheel. This won't have art, and it'll get lost each time you update; but, it will work, and is much easier than a custom XML you make.



FYI Marking this post solved, this doesn't mean that we will not continue to help with this issue. Moving this because the above will solve this issue 99% of the time and help other users; so we want to get it to the SOLVED section. If you are still personally having the same issue, please continue to post in this thread and we will continue to assist if we can; the moving of the post is to help others, it doesn't mean we are ending viewing this thread.
