Free Folder Mode (again...)

Recommended Posts

First, I really like LB and I have a premium license, thanks for all the work.

But I don't use it because I can't organize the things the way I want.

I think we really need folders and sub-folders, this has been asked from the start, so where's the problem?

Sorry but the platform mode is not the solution for this.

As far as I know, there isn't a frontend (such as Launchbox) that is capable of doing this, at least not yet. You can have multiple sub directories with a frontend like retrofe which is pretty decent, but for me it runs way too slow and it is not nearly as intuitive and convenient as launchbox. Having said that, this will probably be implemented in the future but if you want to see this feature added and contribute to the development of launchbox/bigbox, you can always send a bitbucket request :) https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/new

There's already some bitbuckets requests about this :

https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/534/option-to-create-custom-submenus-and

https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/1256/ability-to-use-nested-custom-filters

https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/311/nested-filters

and probably more, nested filters is now marked as resolved but for some people is not.

This feature has the highest votes each time but was not even in the poll...

Right, and I was one of the people who voted for it to be implemented (about a year ago or so) Let's hope that this feature will be 'enhanced' sometime in the near future :)

this is my most wanted feature of all time! I've voted for it on the bitbuckets.

I'm hoping it's in the next poll of wanted features, because I'm voting for this as number one! Polls like those really tackles the most wanted features and adding some of the top voted bitbuckets issues/features would be perfect for the next poll.

@pasteko This will be on the upcoming poll, and we will see how much of a priority it truly is. It's entirely possible that it really is what the community wants the most, but it's also entirely possible that it's only desired by a handful of very vocal power users. We'll find out, and if it turns out to be a priority, I'm more than happy to implement it.

Per retro achievements and community ratings, I can guarantee you there is more excitement in the community surrounding those two features (at least for retro achievements) than this particular feature. One man's necessity is another man's wasted effort.

How is it possible that retro-achievements and community ratings are more important than this???

 

I couldn't agree more.

image.thumb.png.a0a48741fe3aada7f4e361fe1c181755.pngIs it not the most voted issue on Bitbucket?

Ok it's old, but there's also some topics talking all about the same feature (subcategories, multi-wheel, playlist folders...),

LaunchBox is a wonderful piece of software thanks all the work, but how it possible we can't use it to freely organize our folders?

It comes down to this when the poll comes out make sure you vote for it I know I will be if everyone is interested and I think more than just a small vocal minority is then I'm sure it will be taken care of just all the people who voted  for the bitbucket and posted asking for it make sure you show up and vote for the poll.

Where is the poll?? Linux poll?? Are you serious??

We are not a handful of very vocal power users, just normal users asking for a basic feature or at least a poll to measure the interest for this.

Don't worry, there will be a new poll soon on what upcoming features to work on for the immediate future of Launchbox.

As for Linux, please feel free to voice and concerns in the appropriate thread and the survey linked and right now it's more to judge actual interest in it, nothing more.

Please Free Folder Mode

 

Why is always that some nice piece of software is just few steps from perfection ?

I try many Game lauchers and always there is some small things i am missing. So please include Free Folder Mode, linux version can wait, they have some nice piece of software anyway.

If only that one single feature would make Launchbox "perfect" for everyone, the fact of the matter is that there is still a ton of features to be added that will improve Launchbox.

The good news though is Jason is constantly working on new stuff and adding it in all the time and maybe this feature will make it into the next poll which will be coming up once the 8.0 release goes official.
