I agree, but realise that this would seriously impact the scrolling and art loading speed. I'm not so sure it's worth the disk space you'd save.

I understand that, but as you scroll through the games, RetroFE loads the art to display. Having to unzip it from a (large) archive reduces the speed at which it can scroll and/or animate/show the art.
