ATTENTION:

How to add previews/screenshots/boxart (the simple way):

1. Edit link and set a path to "Selector Directory"

2. Drop an image file (jpg or png) with the exact same name as the rom file with no extension, in the same directory as rom file.

It will automatically show the preview when you select the rom file.

Complete way, with more details and scrapper utilities, check the excellent manual by @m1024:

How to add rom name aliases:

1. Edit link
2. Select a path for Selector Directory
3. In Selector Aliases, select a .txt file containing the original file name (no extension) and the name to be shown in file selector.
E.g.:
nam1975=NAM-1975
bstars=Baseball Stars Professional
tpgolf=Top Player's Golf
...

Attached follows aliases with commom names for FBA, Mame and NeoGeo game files.

The size can change due to skin settings. Anyway, pick a 128x128px and it's ok.

i canot open the alias file ".zip.txt " ???

Dingoonity no not allow to upload .zip files. Just rename the .zip.txt to .zip and you will be able to extract it.
