Sorry have not been watching this in a while. I've not heard of that issue. Could either be doubles if you have say snk on arcade and snk of consoles could see that happening. Are you using PC or pi? Mickleson has recently implemented this in a nightly build where you can turn off plug in and will return to previous menu you were just in. Works wonderfully.

Just wondering, where can this nightly build be found? Everytime I check the nightly downloads page it comes up with a blank "error" website. And does this mean that the plugin is no longer necessary if we want to go back to the previous page/system?

The long behold question of Attract Mode Platform Categories has been solved! I have been racking my brain for months and after trolling the source line by line I finally found a lead and was a success.

I am experiencing undesired behavior or even bug with plugin.
When i enter submenu look arround what ever, and i return back to main menu it puts me in very wrong place. Instead of returning to original submenu starter point it jumps couple spots down depending how many i had in submenu

Any way to fix that?

Do you have github maybe?

P.S i see that u mentioned a "fix" on first page but i am not seeing any of those files

meh :(  cant use it as it is, returning to menu jumps up to 10 spots away from place where i was..

This sounds like it might be the old error with Attract Mode taking into account the hidden displays. If you have hidden displays this can cause things to skip spots. Try updating Attract Mode to the latest version, see if that fixes it.

yeah , thats what is happening. I have few empty systems.unfortunately i am on 2.2.1.0 so nothing to update unless i update from guthub.I cleaned up systems, but i still have few i havent added roms yet WIP. its kinda bothering me.

Btw love the script tho. I made even additional in depth lines like collection->sports>list sports by type: baseball ,football..etc then list games.

Never mind! I found the answer to my question :) The latest version 2.30 which was released a few days ago now allows you to return to the previous menu/system without having to use the aforementioned plugin. Woohoo!

Only thing, which I don't believe will be a hard task for some of you very experienced themes is some sort of transition call back to previous menu. This is a huge leap in the right direction. Enjoy friends!

UPDATE***** Plug in created! Fully functional for all PC, PI, etc!
