We lose nothing... I actually don't think it makes such a big difference anyway, but I haven't checked thoroughly, only on Linux with ext4.

BTW, I'm currently adding support for software-status checking & caching, and I want to use different icons than the system ones to indicate software-states.

Here's my current set of icons for software-states (correct, incorrect, mostly correct, not found and unknown):



What do you think? Or perhaps someone wants to post different ones (appreciated).

Well, I need to represent all 5 states as mentioned above... red/green is not enough smile.

I would suggest that by default 2 states ("will run"/"won't run") is probably what most users are looking for.

Yeah, but the "yellow" state is for software sets which are "best available". It should actually be more yellow-green as in the game/machine list case. Grey and blue have their uses as well wink... I also want to use/keep the same color-coding.

I agree, but I think the top-level game list should just be green/red and you can get properties on a specific set to see more details. Would be easier for new users I think smile

OK, I could perhaps add an option for that called "simple states" or "advanced states". Anyway, I need those 5 colors for advanced states at least smile.

On the other hand, there are rare cases where an incorrect (red) set still runs... using red for incorrect *and* not found sets would thus be a problem. Also, when the user prematurely stops the ROM check, or the data is not available for whatever reason, there would be no way to indicate that (unknown state / blue).
