  1. Awesome! Did not realize this was possible. I just tested that it works with pdf, jpg, gif and png files. I created a new folder called "Strategy Guides" with platform names within in it... similar to the folder structure of "Manuals". I Created an additional app for Mortal Kombat II for SNES and named it "View Strategy Guide" and set the path accordingly. It shows up right above the exit game entry on the Pause Menu. If you wanted to, you can also do this for box art and other images. Pretty cool! ...just no support for video at the moment for those old tv commercials. Edit: Additional Apps is set to browse for executable files for the path, you have to change it to "all files (*.*)".
  2. Agreed, it would be great! Although I think it would probably need to be a more specific option menu... such as "+ pdf item", "+ video (mp4) item", "+ image (jpg/png) item". I think if this system was set up, the pause menu would basically be feature complete.
  3. I'm currently trying to figure out the best way to do that... In LaunchBox, you can go to "Arrange by / MAME high scores supported" and it will sort them, but I don't see a sortable value for it in creating a playlist. I can right click all of the current sorted games that are supported and add that way, but I would rather set up a dynamic playlist.
  4. I think it would be cool to have within the Pause Menu options tab... "+ custom Pause Menu item". You can then give it a label, then link it to any folder you like such as "guides" or "commercials".
  5. Thanks for the responses, that makes sense. The badges and filters for high scores would be great to have! As far as Retroachievements, I wonder if an option, similar to "download updated community star ratings" can be implemented to scan their database to use in order to sort out what games in your library supports them. This one wouldn't need to be real time anyway, just a once in a while scan to update your Retroachievement library would be more than enough... In the meantime, I think I might just create custom fields for these to make playlists, these 2 features really help me pick out games to play out of a large library.
  6. I don't guess there's currently any way to create a dynamic playlist for arcade "High Scores" or, for games that support it, "Retroachievements"? I'm not seeing any real way that LaunchBox can identify these features to create rules for a playlist, and can't really think of a work around... other than individually sorting through games and manually adding them or creating a custom field. But I'm starting to see a real benefit of wanting to know which games support these 2 features other than going through a huge collection and selecting one by one. Edit: I should probably clarify for the High Score Leaderboards... I would like to be able to identify the arcade games that actually have active high scores set within the community.
  7. Just in case it hasn't been mentioned yet for future updates... adding Badges for games to indicate whether a game has "MAME High Scores" & "Retro Achievements" will be really nice! 😁
  8. This is such an awesome theme! Any chance for an updated version to show MAME high scores in the game details bar? Thanks!
  9. Good points... Didn't think about triggering the shutdown screen. Although, I just tested it using MAME's reset shortcut and it didn't trigger the shutdown screen so that's good... just not sure if it will send the updated high score. Update: Resetting doesn't send the high score, it does require a close.
  10. Adding MAME high scores in the Pause Menu would be really nice! Even if the emulator has to be closed to refresh the scores... it would still allow you to see ahead of time, the score to beat. Maybe a "refresh" button can be added and it would just be to trigger a shortcut to restart the emulator.
  11. This is awesome! Tested it with Galaga and works great!
  12. This is probably my favorite LaunchBox theme so far, I've been using it for a while and love it! I am just curious if there's a plan to update it to support the new badge system? Or maybe even just a code to copy and paste into an xml file...? Thanks!
  13. Not real sure what you're referring to with badges...? The icon labeling system I mentioned is the ability to add different small icons visible over specific games that you can choose to identify things such as multiple discs, multiple versions, broken, hidden, controller type, # of players... stuff like that. That's probably my most anticipated future feature.
  14. I'm still looking forward to the new icon indicator system to be implemented from the previous poll... That's going to a pretty awesome feature.
  15. This is really awesome! Since this is a plugin, can "Playtime" be implemented into a Startup or Pause Theme like the "Play Count" and "Last Played" fields can be? Thanks.
