No, because you wouldn't be able to find devices or BIOSs otherwise smile. I dunno how often I've answered this "question"...

SVN r6408:
  • new: due to popular demand, the system search can now be configured to include (default) or exclude BIOS and device sets via the menu attached to the pattern input
I hope this helps smile.

I don't know if it's already requested, or even if it's possible to be implemented, but it would be cool if it's possible to show the systems in the list hierarchy (parent/clone), even in category view. This way the parents and clones won't be mixed when scrolling in the categories and it wiil be more organized if wanted. Thanks wink

Well, it's possible of course, but the sole reason for the different views is to not overdo with nesting. I have F5, F6, F7, and F8 mapped to the detail-, hierarchy-, category- and version-views; so when I'm interested if it's a parent or a clone (or what clones exist), I simply press F6 smile.

No no, the problem is not "see" if it's a parent or clone (by the way there's various ways to see this information, qmc2 is already very good at showing this) the biggest problem is organization, when you choose category view you have hundreds of entries most out then are clones. I'm sure that if it could be implemented we would have the best of the both worlds and we wouldn't need to navigate in lots of duplicated entries even when in category mode.

Well, most of MAME front ends have used subnesting for years, and at less by the user point of view it never was a problem. I liked the idea.

As you might (or might not) have read in other posts, I'm planning a major redesign / reimplementation of all these views and their internal data representation anyway. I'll keep your suggestion in mind when I do this! But it makes no sense to do it now since with the current implementation it will get hacky rather quickly smile.

By the way, I have another request, which you also don't need to hurry about...
Today is very common a system have various different softwarelists. Would be useful option to hide and show the softwarelists freely by the system. For example, i just want to see the software released in hucards in pce. Then i could hide pcecd softwarelist and i can navigate only in hucard softwarelist.
