Just got confirmation that the Windows build doesn't run. We're trying to sort it out.

The input handler rewrite is coming along quite nicely. 😀

I'm so happy to use Linux at times. 😀 Joe has no issues with multiline expression based search/replace.

Correct. Just match the names or set the metadata.type in the settings.conf.

I'm not entirely happy with the event handling either; I don't have your specific issues, but I too see some irregularities when it comes to handling (keyboard in my case) input. Currently, input handling for the menus is handled separately in two different locations: the main handler looks at the input, and changes some internal states, and the menu itself handles the scrolling based on the internal state. I've been thinking about combining that in one location, but it will require a bit of structure rethinking. It has my attention though.

With regards to your videos: I encountered that issue in the past as well. I was under the impression that it was caused by a lack of hardware support for the video playback in combination with a slow CPU. It disappeared when I switched my CPU to turbo mode. Considering your CPU however (way faster than mine) I may need to rethink the source of this problem. RetroFE currently uses the gstreamer video library, and I've considered switching to another library for quite some time now. I may need to give that another look.

When booting, RetroFE checks whether meta.db exists. If it does not, it parses all XML files in the meta/hyperlists directory based on the supported fields, ignores all unsupported fields, and puts the information in the meta.db database. The games are listed under name that matches the XML file name. RetroFE matches that information with a collection either by name of the collection or by the metadata.type setting in the collection's settings.conf file if it exists. As an example:
The information in meta/hyperlists/Nintendo Entertainment System.xml will be put in the database under the collection Nintendo Entertainment System. If a collection is named Nintendo Entertainment System (without metadata.type set to something else) or a collection has metadata.type = Nintendo Entertainment System in the settings.conf file, RetroFE will pull the information from that part of the database by matching the filename of the rom to the database entry.

As for your example, you could use year, and just use an 80s image for 1980-1989.

It's indirect. RetroFE pulls certain fields from the XML files to generate the meta.db database, and pulls the info from that database when loading a collection. Adding unsupported fields for games requires changes in the C++ code I'm afraid. The code for the collection information is more flexible  (e.g. information about NES).

They need to be updated still. Pre 0.7.2 themes will not work properly on 0.7.2+ executables. 0.7.2 marked a serious fix in theming and animations.

It's fixed in bit bucket, but there's no official release yet. I plan to do a few more fixes, and I am waiting for the Windows compile to make sure everything works under all Operating Systems.

You can find the latest MAME/MESS XML and include files for RetroFE in the download section.
For RetroFE, simply install mame_full.xml as MAME.xml (or Arcade.xml, or whatever name you use for your MAME collection), and rename the include file of your choice to include.txt in that collection. Don't forget to delete meta.db so RetroFE will add the latest information to your meta database.

Ok, I think that should do the trick. :)

I'll play around with it. :) Any idea why this behavior may be different between Kubuntu and Mint KDE?

No luck so far. open uses the virtual terminals in Linux, and kde-open doesn't allow you to target executables...
