Hi Rene, absolutely loving QMC2 so far. Ridiculously awesome frontend!
I have somewhat of strange but trivial request regarding the frontend GUI. Kinda long so bare with me...
OK, so you know how in the QMC2 GUI window, we have the left side, which displays the roms/systems/etc, and on the right side are the tabs for things like Previews, Software list, Configuration, etc. right? Well under the "configuration" tab, where we are allowed to make changes to each specific rom or machine, there is a category called "state/playback". Then under that is a sub-category called "statename".
We all know that statename allows us to name whatever name of the savestate we want, as hinted at from my good friend R.Belmont in my other thread. I find this ability to be awesome! Next to the statename is usually the "%g" string by default. I can type whatever name I want next to that and it will create a subfolder folder called that name(ie snes>zelda). The way you have integrated this option into QMCS2 is magnificent. However, there is one teeeny TINY
small thing I would like to see done with this....
OK so you know how next to where it says statename, I notice that the blank box containing the %g is also a dropdown menu. If you type something after %g and want to change it back to the default, you can simply click the drop down arrow and click the %g below to return to just "%g".
What I would like to request, is a way for that specific dropdown menu to store
the entries we've made in that box. For example....let's say I want to play say, five different games from the same system....let's say snes.... Zelda, Mario, finial fight, mortal kombat, and f-zero. For me to have a different savestate for each of those particular games, I need to type something short that represents each of those games, right? OK so let's say I type %g/Zel, %g/FF, %g/Mar, %g/MK and %g/F-z. I now have five different sub-folders that QMC2 had created within the "snes" directory. Great....
Now....., let's say I exit out of QMC2 altogether and go out for a few hours, spend time with my girlfriend, go grocery shopping and comeback home. If I fire up QMC2 and want to revisit those five particular snes games, I have to re-type "%g/Zel, %g/FF, %g/Mar, %g/MK and %g/F-z"
all over again for each of those game if I want to continue loading those states and saving them in those unique folders. That is why I'm asking if you could please change it so that the dropdown menu box next to "statename"
can store and remember whatever entries we type in for that one machine or whatever machine we're running. It would be more convenient and would make the process of choosing your savestate subfolders quicker.
Is there anyway you can add this ability in one of the next versions of QMC2 Rene?
Thanks and keep up the great work
