|Summary||08410: neogeo.cpp: Wrong screenshot file names in systems with multiple carts (software list)|
This affects software list systems that can have more than one game loaded.
My example involves the neogeo. Snapname is configured to '%g/%d_cart1%i', which will output the filename correctly. So for example if I load "mame neogeo aof", the filename will go to neogeo\aofxxxx.png.
But if you load more than one cart, the screenshot will always have the name of the very first cart specified in the command line option. For example, running "mame neogeo -cart1 aof -cart2 burningf -cart3 aof3", will make screenshots be output to neogeo\aofxxxx.png.
Two more examples, "mame genesis -cart1 sk -cart2 sonic2" - the filename will be genesis\skxxxx.png. "mame genesis -cart1 ggenie -cart2 sonic2" - filename is genesis\ggeniexxxx.png.
My suggestion is that in this case, the names of all the games loaded into the system be used to create the base filename. So something like genesis\ggenie+sonic2xxxx.png in the last example above.
I only tried this with cart-based systems, I don't have much experience working with floppy based systems, but I assume there are similar problems there.

|This overall seems more of a desired feature than strictly a bug in my eyes - but I'll leave it open for direction.|

|I tried to see if I could add this on my own, but couldn't. Frankly, this would be better as a desired feature rather than a bug. I don't think anyone thought this would be necessary back in the day... so yeah, I'm okay with this being flagged as 'desired feature' instead.|

|Trying to do this would just over-complicate things. You'll just have to organise your screenshots manually.|
