Feature Requests / Suggestions / Retro Fe, the future?
« on: August 23, 2017, 08:02:51 PM »
Hi, I'm new, well depends on how you look at it. I consider myself new.

I'm learning to code, sort off, I try to. my goal is to be able to contribute at some point, coding wise.

I like this front end, it can be greatly customised. but I keep asking my self, what would make this frontend even better?
It's cross platform, it's opensource, it has a community full of creative people that are able to either make a theme using code or make apps that makes setting up retroFe easier.

So I wonder, and at the same time I'm afraid that what I will list will come over as critisism or perhaps whiny or otherwise demanding.
If I look at say emulation station, they have a build in scraper. that's an awesome feature.
and if you look at Launchbox, it has this awesome features that scans your computer for PC games
Hyperspin has those awesome transitions that whoosh you from one system to the next. this is masking that chunky and abrupt theme loading ofcourse but it does look snazzy.

Practical feature would be, for windows users at least I suppose some graphical user interface for managing and configuring the FE. Linux users are happy using the terminal I suppose.
Another Practical feature would be a graphical WYSIWYG theme builder.
To be able to mark games as favorites from retrofe it self.

I'm not even sure why I post this here, as most of these things have been mentioned earlier..

my name is Jeroen, and I'm switching to retro-fe. I'm from The Netherlands and 37 years old. I'm excited and curious to find out how retro-fe works.
I'll migrating from Hyperspin, and I 've fiddled a bit with launchbox, the latter did not live up to my expectations.

I'm fairly proficient with Photoshop and I will see if I can put those skills to good use.
