Hey.

I got my Carnivore2 up and running (see post from yesterday).

When you add a ROM file to the boot menu (c2man), they appear in the order that you added them.
Is there an easy way to have them alphabetically?

Maybe I should clear all entries and run a batch file to add them all at once in the correct order?
Any other ways?

Thanks.
Kris.

He meant the sorting of entries in the boot block of C2. This feature is not implemented yet. Maybe it will be added in the future.

Sofarun sorts the files in alphabetical order.

Sofarun takes about 3 second to display a hundred files from a sub-directory. If the file sort is implemented in the Carnivore 2, the display will also be slower. Not to lose in speed, we have to sort directly on the FAT but the least corruption becomes catastrophic.

Sorting can be implemented in the C2MAN utility as a part of the directory optimization. Should not be too complex. Bubble sorting will work fine.
