Remove/hide vertical games

I've got two cabs, one horizontal and one vertical. My Arpicade running 3.X.1 is in the horizontal cab.

How do I only show horizontal games in the attract mode list? I have no desire to run vertical games on my horizontal cab.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I too would like to know if there is a switch (command line) or option to show only horizontal or vertical games.

Or is there an easy way to filter the ROMs?

Sorry I must have missed this post the first time around...

As far as I'm aware there's no convenient way to do this at the moment (there maybe an Attract-Mode option or plugin I'm not aware of), but I could certainly add one to the service menu in the future.

Pretty sure I wrote a script to sepperate roms years ago... may have been prior to my old HDD failing though.

I could write a script to move all vertical games to a different folder that could be run from the command line if you like. That way you could just move all the vert games to your PC (or whatever storage), in case you ever wanted them back.
