it would be nice if 'my programs' was able to read the filename and display the full title of the game instead of the 8 character filename.

for example

instead of

ddsom

display

dungeons & dragons: shadow over mystaria

this wouldnt be very hard to implement, there are tons of mame database files and you probably wouldnt have to type in each name for every rom.

The problem is comming up with a generic way of doing it so that if db for N64 Nes SNes (for example) were available, then they also could be used.

Also, I'd need to integrate a files db for this to work right as re-parsing all of the files would lead to unacceptable slow downs.
