Create .M3U files for multi-disc Roms

Available from version

If you have Roms that contain multiple disks, you can collect them in a single '.m3u' file. You just have to scrape this file, and in your frontend you can change the disk via the Retroarch menu.

Operating mode in ARRM

If you have multi-disc Roms listed in the ARRM database.

For example :

Final Fantasy VII (disc 1).cue
Final Fantasy VII (disc 1).bin
Final Fantasy VII (disc 2).cue
Final Fantasy VII (disc 2).bin

  • To create the file ' Final Fantasy VII.m3u ' you must select (highlight) in the database, the following files (please note that the files must be in ascending order of the disks):

Final Fantasy VII (disc 1).cue
Final Fantasy VII (disc 2).cue

  • Click on ' Create M3U '.

The file 'Final Fantasy VII.m3u' will be created containing these 2 lines (the file is cleaned of disc information):

Final Fantasy VII (disc 1).cue
Final Fantasy VII (disc 2).cue

ARRM will then automatically ' hidden ' these 2 files, so that there is no duplication when displaying the gamelist in your Frontend.

Final Fantasy VII (disc 1).cue
Final Fantasy VII (disc 2).cue

  • When you have finished all your creations of .M3U, Save your gamelist.xml

  • Reload the database by clicking on the ' Display ' button to see the new '.M3U' files appear

If you do not see your . M3U files appear, make sure that the extension '.m3u' is recognized for the current system. (see ARRM does not display all my games. How to add an extension?)

  • Scrap the new '.M3U' files

Configure the joystick shortcut in Retroach to change discs

  • In the game, go to Retroarch menu (Hotkey + B).
  • Press A to access the Main Menu .
  • Go to Settings> Input> Input Hotkey binds .
  • Define Disk eject toggle , Disk next and Disk prev with your favorite keys.

Example: Disk eject toggle (right-analog up), Disk next (right-analog right) and Disk prev (right-analog left).

  • Now in the game, you can press Hotkey + “button” to eject the disc, swap the disc and insert the disc (and reset the game if necessary).
