I am working on a script right now, progress going slow since i'm not used to program python, therefor having to look up everything.
Need some feedback on the plans.
1: you will be presented with a screen listing all your emulators (atleast those compatible with the launchmethod)
2: selecting an emulator lists all corresponding roms for it (hopefully i will be able to add boxart support)
It will be configurable in the way that you can set your emulator dir (note: all emulators must be in subdirs and you can only set one dir). It will parse out the roms dir from the emulators config file.
It will be localized, checking what language you are running in media center.
Later on there might be theme-file support for different skins (like you specify where to place controls and stuff) but for release it will be maybe two "hardcoded" versions (PMIII and MC360), development is on MC360 for now.
spam me with thoughts and ideas
I've been waiting for something like this for a long time! This is all it would take to integrate into an arcade cabinet smoothly!
I only have a few suggestions but it'd be nicer to remove the game info and put a screenshot there. Also, it'd be nice to be able to automatically alternate between a title and a screenshot every couple seconds. Another thing - can the green background be customized with a different image?
Which emulators will be supported with this script? Do you have a rough list of the working/non-working ones?
Great work! I'll be watching this thread for sure!
