Doh! oh ok I never gave it much thought. Outside of a few racing games using the driver controller, 1 game using the roller controller, and a couple using the spinner there really isn't much to the configuration outside of aesthetic stuff and picking a sound engine that sounds good.
In other words the chance of the user getting it wrong is pretty small. But if I added the support the config file oughta be pretty small due to the way I designed the new system.
Your right. The "Do you wanna quit?" being superimposed over the main menu only occurs on my compiles with my newly modified communfuncs. Anything I compiled under the older commonfuncs does not do it. Odd....
How did you like the overwriting all the configuration options when the user changes the screen size? It seemed a little slow to me. I can only imagine how long it would take with larger rom collections. Maybe I should have a popup that says "this may take a while".
I'll have to try harder when I'm testing the games then. It seemed to me like it wanted me to make choices that the controller couldn't normally handle unless modified. Maybe your support file negates this.
I really don't like the problem with the superimposing of the graphics myself. I don't care about it for me at all, but since I'm putting this on my bro's system and some friends it would be nice to know that this won't happen on all the roms if you know why it happened and how to block it from happening.
I didn't know you did the overwriting of the screen thing on this emu. I'll have to mess a few up on purpose and test it. NES is the only one that I f'd up originally on accident, so I wouldn't have been able to test it before. But now that I know I'll give it a spin. I won't be able to do much in the next week or so, but I'll be back to business then.

Everything looks so perfect. The only problem I'm having is naming my roms (I've downloaded two sets from two different sources, and in both, maybe 50 games had matching signatures). Is there a way to rename based on closest matched name?
Flash Gordon and run088,
Are you using the most up-to-date goodesets for SNES and LYNX?
I'm only asking because other people have said the datfiles work perfect.
There's no way of renaming to the closest name that I know of, and I really doubt there is.
Not all of my romsets are from the latest Goodsets, but any rom I have should be in the latest goodsets by default and since I've proven them as working (at least the first few minutes) your system should filter out all the bad ones and rename your sets perfectly.
And run088.... I'm 99% sure that's all of the unique games on the LYNX. madmab made the missing videos for LYNX and didn't know of any other roms that were available for it. He's pretty much the resident Atari expert at this point. Maybe he could answer your question better. I just think it's a lot of duplicate roms though.
