Since you ultimately filter on being a "favorite" wouldn't be easier to just change your load order and include/exclude the "playedcount"?

Manually edit your attract.cfg and place the "favorites" filter above the "all" filter for each system.

That isn't what's being done here. Favourites are a separate filter to "BotB"

You can simplify it a little (Status).

You may want to expand the Title rule, I know there's a couple of games that have "prototype" in their name you don't want to filter - see here: http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=3387.0

Similarly you may have some duplicate games (same game but different rom set) showing - is that intentional? Example: you have dkongf in your exceptions but you're not explicitly excluding the main parent set dkong, so you'll have multiple copies of Donkey Kong showing

You are correct. My mistake.
