Trying to add a new media type for games
« on: December 09, 2007, 09:57:43 pm »
I am so close on this, but I seem to fall a bit short....

(all nouns in this post refer to database tables in pluto_main and pluto_media)

I have added a new mediatype.. 8.. for stored games into MediaType...this allowed UpdateMedia to properly scan and find my mame roms, and they are now in the database.

I have added an entry into MediaType_DesignObj to map design objects and file list screens to the new media type, in the end all referencing the FK_MediaType of 8. I am using the designobjs and screens from the Stored Video for now, until I make new DesignObj's in HADesigner...

I have added necessary bits to the MediaSubType and its associated join tables....

but when I try to send a command "Show File List" to the on-screen orbiter, the file list does not appear, and I get the following from the log:

01      12/09/07 15:26:01.160           No way to show file list for 8 <0xb4cb3b90>

help? anybody? what am I missing?
