Some users like to have different songs played back when browsing different gaming systems. For example, they like to listen to some Sega-oriented themes while they are browsing their Megadrive library, and Nintendo-inspired songs when browsing their SNES games.

In order to do this on Batocera, you can create subfolders in your /userdata/music/ directory and put some Sega-inspired MP3 or OGG files in /userdata/music/megadrive/ folder, and others more Nintendo-like into /userdata/music/snes/.

If you enable ONLY PLAY SYSTEM-SPECIFIC MUSIC FOLDER, you will only get a random selection of the songs located in /userdata/music/megadrive/ when you browse your Megadrive games, but none from your SNES subfolder.

Warning: the song files that are present in /userdata/music/ will be picked up randomly for any system (whether you have system-specific songs or not).

If you disable ONLY PLAY SYSTEM-SPECIFIC MUSIC FOLDER, Batocera will randomly pick up a song in your /userdata/music/ directory and any of its sub-folders.
