Any way to hide lists?
« on: May 27, 2015, 09:25:27 AM »
I want to say this has been asked..but I could not find it. Sorry if I made a duplicate thread.

Back in my Windows days I was using MameWah. With it I could "skip" lists. In other words it would not cycle to be seen but it was still there. Normally I used that feature because in the main list nothing could be deleted from it. So I made another "all games" list that was edited to my tastes and then set it up to where the "master list" never showed.

I'd like do that with attract mode. What I am doing is I have my games split by category (e.g. maze, fighting, platform ect.) but the "all games" list cycles right along with them. I would like to hide that list so people can just cycle by category instead.

I don't think you can do anything with the fe.class from a script standpoint but I've been wrong before.

How about making two lists, which shares same romlist file?

list   master
   layout               basic
   romlist              mame
   filter               All
   filter               Favorites
      rule                 Favourite equals 1
list   category
   layout               basic
   romlist              mame
   filter               Fighter
      rule                 Category contains Fighter
   filter               Puzzle
      rule                 Category contains Puzzle


Then you can normally stay in 'category' list, that people can cycle through (by next_filter / prev_filters).

If you intend to 'manually pick some games, and only those games are shown to people', you can use tags.



list   master
   layout               basic
   romlist              mame
   filter               All
   filter               Favorites
      rule                 Favourite equals 1
list   category
   layout               basic
   romlist              mame
   global_filter       
      rule                 Tags contains handpicked
   filter               Fighter
      rule                 Category contains Fighter
   filter               Puzzle
      rule                 Category contains Puzzle



Then you can manually pick games in 'master' list, by putting 'handpicked' tags to them. These games will be shown in 'category' list.
