Do you split your games in other folders? Like, folder for ps1, minis... My games are all messed up.
For the autoboot, where do you put the files? Thanks

Hi, I think the idea of providing basic information about games is interesting, this site is very complete and neat: http://vitagamesdb.com/
Information such as genre, game creators/publishers, release date, Title ID and covers for every region are included.
Perhaps some of that metadata (as well as covers) can be obtained "on demand" by HexFlow from this database by asking the author for permission.

Yeah vitagamesdb is great but it has nothing more than what I already have in HexFlow Launcher. Covers are downloaded from my github and title id's are already in the details menu.
Renascene has more info like game description, screenshots etc.

Translations will be added in future versions. But sure you can share your modified version if you want.
Ok thanks

My Psp and minis and ps1 are all in the same sections. Any ways to have them separated from Psp section?
Thanks

For PS1 game folder name must match with the GameID. For example "ux0: pspemu/PSP/GAME/SLES01234". Subfolders and psp categories plugin are not supported.

I tried this with Syphon Filter 3 for example I named it SCES03701 and it still shows with psp games. Do the eboots have to be created from psx2psp only or do ps1 games from pkgj get sorted into ps1?

Great work by the way this app is damn near perfect now!

Only tested with PSX2PSP bubbles created with Adrenaline Bubbles Manager.
The app checks in two locations for a single PS1 game. For example: for the PS1 game "SLES01234" it looks in: "ux0: pspemu/PSP/GAME/SLES01234" and "ux0:app/SLES01234". If both folders exist at the same time it marks it as a PS1 game.

Got it now, looks like I named the folder wrong. So the gepatch for PSP games is not supported at the moment?

Sorry, I don't understand. Do I have to delete one of them or rename the file? I've been renaming my covers like it is in the app as pspemu and the game number. It works for Psp but there is no game in psx category.

GePatch should work fine.

No you don't have to delete any folder. Both folders must be there.

Here is the exact order on how to create proper PS1/PSP bubbles with Adrenaline Bubbles Manager:
Lets say that you have a PS1 game at "ux0: pspemu/PSP/GAME/YOUR_PS1_GAME". That folder must be renamed with the GameID of that specific game.
The correct GameID for each PS1/PSP game can be found at the top right corner of Adrenaline Bubbles Manager when you select each game. Then follow these steps in order:
  1. Rename YOUR_PS1_GAME folder I mentioned above with the GameID.
  2. Open Adrenaline Bubbles Manager and press Start to open the Extra Settings menu.
  3. Change the BubbleID to TitleID (this is necessary for both PS1 and PSP games)
  4. Press X on the PS1 game that you wish to generate a bubble
  5. Open HEX-Flow Launcher and switch to PS1 games category. The game should show up there.
