Here's RetroFE 0.8.6. As always: make a backup copy of your executable before trying this one.

New features:
- Use ! (unequal to), < (smaller than), and > (greater than) for the menuIndex of animations. This will allow you to define animations for multiple menu levels.
- Use i as menuIndex for menu animations, activating the animation only if the menu is active. This will allow you to create a single menu definition for multiple menu levels.
- Use menuIndex as a menu attribute. This will instantiate that menu at the specified menuIndex. In practice, this will allow you to display multiple menus at the same time.

Here's RetroFE 0.8.9. As always: make a backup copy of your executable before trying this one.

Change log:
- Updated code to allow proper emulator launching on RetroPie. Note that this is WIP, and more changes will be added, especially in the scripting area.
- Added onMenuIdle animation type, which will continuously be activated while the menu isn't scrolling.

Here's RetroFE 0.8.11. As always: make a backup copy of your executable before trying this one.

Change log:
-  Fixed SDL grabwindow bug when unloadSDL = false.
-  Cleaned up the scrolling list code.
- Fonts only need to be reloaded when launching a game with unloadSDL = true. Reloading it every time the graphics are reallocated has a huge performance impact.
- On closing, RetroFE only needs to be de-initialised once. Destroying the RetroFE object will already do that.
- Added the ability to add additional information via the collections/<collection name>/info/<item name>.conf files. This files work like all configuration files. The global configuration overwriteXML can be used to give the values in this file preference over those in the meta XML. This can also be used for ReloadableMedia as well as ReloadableText items.
