DC: Game Listing Utility
|Reported by:||SF/stryfe-dc||Owned by:||zeldin|
I notice that the DC scummvm has to do quite a bit of scanning of the disc every time it's initially loaded, and after returning to the menu on the games that support it. This cause the drive to do quite a lot of work, making it get worn out quicker.
As ScummVM replaces the original executables, there would be no purpose to have a file browser that could browse through the disc and then load the particular game. I had also thought that a file-listing utility, like the one used by the GenPlusDc and DreamSNES emulators would also be useless.
But...after some thought I realized that maybe an utility could scan the directories pointed to, just like scummvm already does to indentify the games on the disc, and create a file/game list that could be included on the disc for ScummVM to read once each load, or return to menu.
Would this be possible/plausible?
