Filter mature titles
« on: October 02, 2017, 04:41:11 PM »
Hello.  I know there was a filtering thread from a few months ago, but I wanted to chime in with another (and separate) request.  I'd like the ability to filter out any title identified by the Hyperlist XMLs as Mature so I don't have to worry about what kinds of games my kids stumble upon.  As for a way to implement it, I imagine you could add a new option in the settings.conf which accepts a comma delineated list.  Something like:

Filter = Mature,Mahjong

So that any game which is identified by the XML as belonging to either of those categories is filtered from the list without a specific mention in exclude.txt.  This could be implemented at both the global level (RetroFE's settings.conf) or on a per-system level (each collection's own settings.conf).  I would be very grateful for this feature, and I imagine it would help a lot of other users.  Would this be feasible?  Thanks very much.

Sounds feasible enough. I'll have a look.

This would be nice. Especially if we can simply edit the XML files to add "Mature" to the genre. My little one is approaching two years old and has seen me fiddling with RetroFE for many moons. Keeping these games out for her would be a big plus!
