Favorites Playlist: Can It Be Put In Platforms Listing?


Recommended Posts

Yes you can, right click one of your favourites and choose "add to playlist" then "new playlist" In the new window name the playlist you can also add a sort title here, I added 001 to the beginning of mine so that it shows first in the list but that's optional. Then check the "include playlist in platforms" box. Then move to the auto populate tab, check the box then in the first dropdown choose "Favorites" leave the rest of that line "as is" then in the second dropdown choose "Platform" leave "is equal to" and type "Arcade" into the end box, see pics attached. 

This will create a auto populating Favorites playlist, and whenever you add another favorited game it will be automatically added to the playlist.

Yeah there is a setting in Launchbox and Bigbox to toggle showing broken games, I'm just not sure if that also works in Playlists or just the Platforms.

I was not sure either so I just tested. It does work. If you mark a game as broken from a platform the game will still show in the playlist as long as you have the "Show Broken" checked in settings.

Is there a way to add games to favorites from bigbox front end using joystick/arcade controls? Pressing "left arrow" displays star icon, search and a-z lettter.

Yes. If you have the setting for "skip games detail screen" unchecked this will bring up the game detail screen where you click on a game. In that screen is the option to add favorite a game or to add to a playlist. 

Or you can map a  button so "show games detail screen and when you highlight a game and hit that button it will bring up the same screen.
