Notes about these new features:
* Hyperlist and No-intro database formats now able to import region info from database files.
* Ability to import categories from databases, new option added in the database import dialog, allows to add category information into roms if available.
* The database import engine can now generate filters for region, if region data is imported from database.

If the database file imported include information about game region, EO now able to import the region info and add it into the console as Rom Data Info (i.e. it will appear as new column in the list view).
Also, EO now able to add the regions imported as Filters, simply import a database file (Hyperlist or No-intro), if the database include region info, EO will add them as Filters. Example: filter for USA, JPN, EU ...etc
Plus, EO can now import categories from database files and add them directly as categories in the project.
Note that you need to configure EO through the Import database dialog in order to use these features. They are turned on by default.
The GameDB api has been updated in the website, i didn't knew about this but recently. Updating EO to be able to handle the new version of the api will take sometimes. Thus, this feature is disabled temporarly.
In the Detect dialog, 2 modes are included, Random and Folder-By-Folder.
Random mode is the old normal mode, EO will collect all the files from the folders listed and start detecting the files for the roms. Roms would get files regadless of the folder, that means no matter the folders order, EO will put files detected randomlly into roms.
But in Folder-By-Folder, EO will detect for files going through folder by folder in the list. This means EO first will detect files for example for folder 1, then assign the detected files into roms. Then repeats the same process for folder 2... etc
This mode is useful for one thing: detected files order. Example:
Let's say we have a rom named Game.nes. It have 3 snapshots, each in 3 folders (snap1 in folder1, snap2 in folders2 and snap3 in folder3). Then:
Random mode: Game.nes will detect the files in order: snap3, snap1, snap2
Folder-By-Folder mode: Game.nes will detect the files in order: snap1, snap2, snap3
This mode is slower than random.
Hope this help, please feel free to post questions and comments here.
Enjoy !
