This idea has probably been around for years and/or discussed, but I wondered if it would be possible to have the Picker/Device view under the System view as an option, along with the default position at the right...

Fake screenshot example

I second your suggestion as it's exactly what I sugested long time ago... laugh I just didn't make a "screenshot".
With long filenames - like GoodTools or TOSEC - this layout would be much more usable.
Of course - the problem is: who will find time to implement it? wink
The next step (in GUI) would be to separate type of view in system & software (list/detailed) - but this would probably need a bit more coding (for less effect).

Still on "old" 0.106 here for MAME and MESS, first day back online.

I also found a couple of days ago that NES games don't display extra things in the games list, but Master System or anything else does. All of the games load but stuff like CRC32 and the GoodNames don't show up for some reason (nes.hsi at fault or something else?).

edit: Sounds really dumb coming from me, but does everything give out an init error (e.g. broken) in 107 - MAME seemed to be a simple drag and drop with 106 with no problems, although AGE also died out.

Good idea; as long as it can be switched off and on;
and that you could move the boundary line between the 2 windows;
and that the setting gets remembered (unlike the current Picker view).

@heihachi_73: no errors here of the type you describe.
