About a Removed Feature {Extension Type Box}

I noticed that under import batch games that the option to type in what file extensions you want to capture is gone. This is useful for when you have games that are 2 files (like bin and cue for example) in a game's folder. Without that feature, launchbox picks both types of files and you end up having to going through every single file to exclude one or the other. Can we have that back (along with what we have currently) so that when that situation comes up, it wouldn't take so long to set up? If that feature is still there but somewhere else, then ignore this. And if so where is it now?

It was removed because of the way the new importing works, it was made redundant. When you import rom files select 'Add Files'. Then select the folder that has all of your roms or CD based games in it. In the top right there is a Search box. There you can type *.iso or *.cue and it will filter all of the files in that folder and in all of the sub folders. Then hit Ctrl + A and Open. It might lag a bit when parsing all of the files but this is how it can be achieved now. Once it parses the files you can select Add Files again and search for another file extension so this also solves the problem of not being able to previously select multiple file types. With the latest beta, using the option to use the folder names instead of the file names was fixed as well.
