How to have a display showing only favorites?
« on: February 13, 2018, 01:27:43 AM »
I have a few displays that I cycle through on my machine, and I'd like to have one that's just all the ROMs that have been marked as favorites. I've made a new Display, named it "favorites", but can't figure out how to make it list only games that have been marked as favorite.

Any tips?

Or is this possible at all?

Thanks for any help.

Thanks for that. Is there some way to make it so games marked as Favorites appear with some icon next to them in the games list? I'm making my own Layout, so scripting solutions are fine too.

@wrybread
i think, only by filtername.
most of the standard layouts show the name of the filter (standards are : All, Favourites)

set your display e.g. to attrac-man:



goto layouts\Attrac-Man and edit layout.nut

there is command to show filter name:
Code: [Select]
l = fe.add_text( "[FilterName]", 396, 322, 60, 10 );
l.align = Align.Right;
l.set_rgb( 80, 80, 80 );
