What? The default template just shows the icons (when they are available), and what do you mean with "bar" here?

What do you expect to happen? Take a look at the front-end log... and when you reload or restart it WILL change something wink.

I give basically the same answer: when they are available, they are shown in the icon column wink.

Looking for new versions of our templates I had a idea: it's possible to create a configuration menu for templates (similar to 'options menu' of QMC2)?
With so many options for new versions of templates, I think that would be the better idea ^^ ).

Ps.: I thought in a wrench icon, like Chrome older versions, to open config. menu.

Well, that's up to the template... QMC2 cannot know beforehand what settings a template needs. It can only provide helper functions.

Could the favourite's page have a view option with a grid of LARGE icons with that nifty drop shadow effect thats on your templates folder (and the round edges is pretty cool too)

also could the grid be customisable I.E. 3x4 or 5x8 or 20x10 etc

options for just icons , icons with names (above , below) coloured text, text size , icon size , show a picture or an icon etc

something like this....(I mocked this up)



and if you really want to go mad have a favourites game's tab with large pictures/icons the same way.
so if you wanted a game of 'The Legend of Zelda' you would start up qmc2, goto 'Game Favourite's' and launch the cover box of 'Zelda II' for NES , the cover box of Zelda (A link to the past) for the snes or the cover box of 'Majora's Mask' for the N64 and qmc2 would load the correct emulator and software

you having previously made them a favourite game.

so a mix of games for all the consoles in a tab on the machine list side.

again something like this...

Hmmm, the idea of changing the favorites-tab was meant differently, to be honest, but I've not yet decided 100% which way to go, so suggestions are welcome... however, games in case of MESS are actually part of software-lists or device-configurations, which is completely different than in case of MAME (for 99% of all cases -- I know there are a few MAME soft-lists as well), and I don't want to implement that differently depending upon the emulator. Really, that's why there's a "favorites page" in the software-list module, and the ability to store device-configurations in the device-mapper module.

Yeah I expected the game favourite to be a non starter. smile

but the Machine Favourites could look ace with pictures/Larger icons

I suppose something like those 3D cabinets for Mame etc.
