I agree with Agent47.  Left to right, top to bottom is the most common arrangement.

Help / Re: Use info .conf text in menu?

Oh, I wasn't familiar with hyperlist (never used Hyperspin).  This seems much more convenient, thank you!

Help / Use info .conf text in menu?
« on: July 14, 2019, 08:56:47 PM »
For example, if I have a ROM named "Game Name - Subtitle (USA)".  In the .conf file for that game, I put

name  = Game Name: Subtitle

Is there a way to have a menu use the name info from .conf instead of the ROM filename?

Hmm, that's a good point.  And I guess there's no point separating the meta from RetroFE if the format is unique to it.

In a similar line to this, I'd love it if each collection remembered your last spot in the menu when it was loaded.

For example, if I've been playing Phantasy Star II on the Genesis, I open Retro FE, select Consoles -> Genesis and the menu is loads up immediately on Phantasy Star II since that was the last Genesis game I had selected.

Not sure if that'd be easier to implement than starting up directly on the last game played.

Oh neat, I didn't realize you could chain them like that.  Thank you!

Feature Requests / Suggestions / "Pulse" animations
« on: July 07, 2019, 11:16:19 PM »
It'd be cool if we could make animations "pulse" back and forth between the FROM and TO values.

<animate type="alpha" from="0.7" to="1" pulse="true" />

Would cause the animate value to do something like this:

Help / Custom path for meta conf files?
« on: July 07, 2019, 11:06:15 PM »
Not sure if this is implemented.  I like to keep my metadata/media files separate from the frontend. I have everything working except the .conf metadata files only seem to work when they're within a collection's file structure in RetroFE.

Is something like this possible?    = %BASE_MEDIA_PATH%/%ITEM_COLLECTION_NAME%/info

Awesome, thank you, Pieter!

Hmm, that was already set to 0. Is that setting perhaps only for the dynamically loaded game videos?

General Discussion & Help / Set a video to loop?

Hi all!  I just switched over from Attract Mode and I'm really impressed with RetroFE so far.

I'm making a theme and I have a background video I'd like to loop, as it's only 30 secs long.  Is there any way to do that?  I wasn't able to find anything in the docs.
