Expansion Boot ROMs location

Hi, I recently discovered you can use expansion roms; I'm interested in accelerators.

I have acquired the expansion_boot_roms.zip, it contains four folders:


It's obvious what these are and I've seen that I can navigate to a ROM file from within the Expansion section of WinUAE.

But I was wondering, is there a location I can keep these files so that they are automatically recognised when I select a board type on the left?

e.g. I choose Blizzard 2060 and then on the right Accelerator board ROM file drop down I can choose from all the 2060 revisions available?

I've tried putting them in the same location as System ROMs but this isn't working.

The "System ROMs" "Scan subfolders" box is checked and a "Rescan ROMs" done?

(But i have never installed all of them and just thrown the few that I needed in the System ROMs folder. So i am not sure the above suggested really works.)

Put them in ROM directory (if in subdirectory: tick also scan subfolders checkbox). Then click Rescan ROMs.

Aha! Thanks to both of you :-)

I forgot to rescan the ROMs!
