    Hi,

    My roms are compressed, but whe rocetlauncher created de m3u, it does it wrong.

    My M3U file contains this:
    H:\Sony Playstation\Metal Gear Solid (USA) (Disc 1).7z
    H:\Sony Playstation\Metal Gear Solid (USA) (Disc 2).7z

    But my temp folder is D:\Temp\Sony Playstation\Metal Gear Solid (USA) (Disc 1)

    And inside i can find the .cue and the .bin file

    Does someone know whats happening here?
    Thank you!

    Your roms for multi disc games need to be uncompressed for the m3u to work unless things have changed recently which I doubt.

    Then the module is not working correctly because it should add the NEW file location (temp) not the original one (compressed).

    Maybe we can fix this.

    It's not really a matter of the module not working correctly because it was never meant to work with compressed files. I'm pretty sure that's even mentioned in the module notes.

    It just doesn't work the way you want it to. Making it work with compressed files would probably mean reworking 7z and multigame functions which isn't going to be simple. Especially not for people who don't have coding experience.

    I remember looking into adding support for it a while back but I can't recall how much work it seemed to be. I may even have a WIP implementation on one of my test setups. It's not something I personally care about so it's not high on my priority list.
