In your launcher directory create a "RocketLauncher" or whatever .conf file. In that file it should be:

executable = C:\RocketLauncher\RocketLauncher.exe (Path to RL exe)
arguments = -s "%ITEM_COLLECTION_NAME%" -r "%ITEM_NAME%" -p RetroFE -f "PathToRFE.exe"

where "PathToRFE" is an absolute path to the RetroFE,exe

Help / Re: Display games naming

Is it possible to have the firstLetter based on the game name instead of the description?
If I scroll now, firstLetter is a T instead of a A in this example.

Code: [Select]
<game name="Addams Family, The - Pugsley&apos;s Scavenger Hunt (USA)" index="" image="">
    <description>The Addams Family: Pugsley's Scavenger Hunt</description>

I'm pretty sure you're in the minority here where you want 300+ games starting with "The". Most people favor the dismissal of articles when sorting. But if you want it that way you can absolutely alter the xml to do that for your use.

CoinOps and other packaged setups are not supported here. Go to them for support. Thread locked.

gstreamer doesn't support it. And nobody wants it. HyperSpin 2-4 years ago added functionality for animated wheels, (once a windows update literally stopped the frontend from working) and they added that. Nobody wanted or asked for it. And nobody utilized it since. And they're all about the flash stuff (cuz it was implemented via swf).

I understand how to create it, that does nothing. It's not a priority for all the reasons I listed before. If you want it, you will have to do it yourself or hire someone to do it. That's the bottom line that you don't understand.

I have no interest in it. You still didn't cite a source for the community creating them to make it worth it. Also, the "pinball" communities are not in great demand and most of the creators and communities are very insulated. They are protective of their media and don't want anyone outside of that to use or enjoy it. So you're basically talking yourself out of the feature since you can't do it yourself.

First, see my edit.

Second, if people are creating apngs en masse, please cite your source. If there is a market for them it's more likely to have your request granted.

As far as your comments towards me, have fun bud :) I know the programming language and can modify it to my pleasure. I've been participating in, bug fixing, and moderating frontend, middleware, and emulation subjects for years. So yes, I have an idea of what is requested and how to implement it. Have a nice day  :)

Frankly, I don't see a point in this. If you want screenshots, use png images. If you want video, use the various formats supported. Most of the sites where people download media have images and videos. Virtually nobody is creating gifs or apng.

RetroFE is open source. So if you want this feature feel free to create a PR. If the maintenance burden isn't too much and you don't hack the codebase to hell I don't see why Pieter wouldn't merge it.

If there's any way non coders can help, let me know!

There's not.

Share your theme / Read this first!

Only post actual themes here that can be used with a base RetroFE install. Any "themes" that are builds or require 3rd party add-ons, keep to your discord groups, youtube channels, etc. They will not be tolerated here. Thanks!

1. Remove the keybind for Esc from the controls ini. Otherwise you'll have to completely revamp the layout to only handle a single collection. That's why Pieter said removing the keybind was the easy option.

2. Read the documentation here:

4. You have to alter the layout xml code.

Please don't bump your own topics in general, especially when not even a week has passed on a feature request where there is only a single active dev.

Thanks for the reply. I will zip a setup and PM you the link sometime this week.
