Create new playlist
« on: July 21, 2020, 09:55:47 PM »
Hello,

I see that RetroFE have : favorite, all and Lastplayed playlist already availlable. Defautl is access by pushing the "right" on the D-PAD. It work very well but i have question on this different playlist :

1) Is there a way to create other playlist ? for exemple a genre playlist to order each system in genre (racing, beat'em all etc.),
2) is there a "letter" playlist/function with A,B,C,D etc. to make navigation easier and jump directly on the letter.
3) how many playlist by system is actually possible ?

Regards,

Agent47

You can create playlists using any criteria you want, but you have to do it manually. I wrote a tool a while back to automate it for my own use but I don't think there's a tool like that here. I could be wrong though since I never really looked for one.

Documentation on how to create extra playlists:
http://www.retrofe.nl/wiki/doku.php?id=collections#playlists

Number of playlists is unlimited. It just makes loading of a collection slightly slower in theory.

Letter jump is a built-in function, no need to use playlist for that.
Here's the documentation on configuring letterUp/letterDown keys:
