How to make read whdload games in more partitions?

Is there a way to do this?

If I have 3 partitions of 400 Mb each in which there are whdload games subdivided in category (0-9, A, B, C....), is there a way to make all the 3 partitions considere when I'll go to "add games"?

And for games spread across multiple partitions:

So add B-Games: and C-Games: to the Assign-Startup file pointing to the extra games drawers, and edit the AddGames script as described above adding those assigns. You edit the script by selecting AddGames, right click and Edit->Text. You may also want to add extra items to the popup menu for these extra games locations and in Dopus.

Wouldn't just adding extra partitions to the A-Games: assign be easier?

Like:
S:Assign-Startup
Code:
Assign >NIL: A-Demos: DH1:Demos
Assign >NIL: A-Games: Whole_lotta_games:
Assign >NIL: A-Games: Crap_ton_of_games: ADD
Assign >NIL: A-Games: Even_more_games: ADD
Assign >NIL: A-Games: Last_but_not_least: ADD
Assign >NIL: A-MyFiles: DH1:MyFiles
Assign >NIL: A-Programs: SYS:Programs
Assign >NIL: A-Temp: DH1:Temp

Very true!

I've never given it much thought to be honest. Some great info for anyone in the future.
