Tried today but setup 3 and 4 gives only a empty window.
Otherwise keep up the good work. RetroFE needs something like this

Maybe a dumb question  but why a compressed file in executive mode (with winrar or winzip) is not just enough ?

First of all, thank you for using my tool.  :D

Ryuuiji: It's an alpha version, I need to implement the other things.

bodbod: You can download the python source code too, and run it with your python (3) interpreter. I just converted it to an exe for convenience.
              And an installer for one file is a little bit overkill, don't you think so?

Awesome tool, I have some questions.

when I want to edit launchers and click the button It doesn't do anything.
and when I want to look at the collections, it shows nothing.

When I pull up procmon i See this, encased in red is when I want to edit the main.conf and in brown is the trace of the collections button.

any suggestions ?

Thank you klopjero!

1. In the Launchers window you have to select a launcher.conf FIRST and then click open conf file...
2. ]The collections settings aren't implemented yet (I know I could have disabled them..)

About the procmon problem:
I have no real clue why this acts so strange, but I have some ideas why:
1. The processes in red may appear becuas you didn't select a conf file first
2. The processes in brown may be because I used a beta version of pyinstaller (the only one working with python 3.5 at that moment..)

Sorry I didn't work more on my tool, but because of no comments or suggestions I thought noone will use it anyway...

Letś make this awesome. I was talking to Pieter yesterday, and it comes down to this:  Iḿ learning to code.. and this tool should be full featured and awesoem :P

adding new systems, should be comprehensive.
Changing layouts is great feature, maybe you could make a preview by reading the source files or ask the theme owner to make a preview thuimbnail.

That's the spirit I am searching!  :D

I am learning to code too (This program is my first...) with HUGE help by stackoverflow.com
You can downlaod and work on the code too, the sourcecode link is on the thread therefore, the code is readable (just not 100% pythonic..)
You can fork it, but please tell me changes you made with added sourcecode...

It would be really cool if the theme makers could add a preview pic ( wink to Pieter and the theme makers....)

So I am going on vacation tomorrow.  :D :D
To wonderful Bibione.   :D :D :D :D :D

klopjero, to start programming I recommend python, much easier to read..
Pro-tip: Use https://atom.io/

So, I am off for the week....  8) 8) 8) 8) 8)
