Sort the gamelist.xml on different criteria

Under Batocera and Retropie, it is possible to sort the gamelist.xml via the Tag <sortname>. ARRM offers a database sorting module based on 5 possible criteria. When a sort is applied to the database, when saving the gamelist.xml, ARRM will create the tag <sortname> with an index (example: <sortname> 002 = - City Defender </sortname>) thus allowing display the sorted gamelist.xml in EmulationStation.

Here's how.

  • Select the system (only one) then click on Display

  • When the Database is filled with the Roms found,

  • Click on the button ' Sorting Database '

  • A form opens in which you can select your sorting criteria.

Click on ' OK ' to validate the criteria or ' Delete Criteria ' to delete them.

  • Save your gamelist.xml by clicking on ' Create gamelist.xml '

Your gamelist.xml will then have a new <sortname> tag as in the example below:

   <path> ./Berzerk.bin </path>
    <name> Berzerk </name>
    <sortname> 022 = - Berzerk </sortname>
    <desc> Berzerk is a video game developed by Stern Electronics, released in 1980 on an arcade machine.nnThe player controls a humanoid in multi-array labyrinthine environments when viewed from above. He must progress by eliminating an army of warlike robots. It is a precursor of run and gun, which notably influenced the conception of Robotron: 2084. The game presents innovative characteristics of gameplay (notably multi-directional shooting) and of realization with computer voices. </desc>

If you want to delete this sort. Return to the sorting module, delete the sorting and then save your gamelist.xml again
If you want to delete the <sortname> tag, please check the 'Removing sortname tag' in 'Gamelist Options' tab
When the <sortname> tab is completed, quick access via the index in EmulationStation is done on this tag and no longer on the name of the game.
