    Dava,

    If you add your main directory for the mame roms and say call it roms, then ass another rompath which points to you folder with all your light gun games and call it say lightgun. When you go into mame you should see two folders one called roms the other called lightgun. does that not help?

    Cheers

    I assume you mean the menybuttons which dont wrap unfortunately I rely on wizuiutilities for the menubutton creation and last time I chaecked Wiz had not included wraparound in his DLL :-(
    Attached is a WizUiHelper.DLL that provides an AutoWrap property to the WizUiButtonList. I have not released this version yet, but it should be fully compatible with prior versions. At the point you create the buttonlist, simply set AutoWrap=true;

    damn my eyesight, I'm partially blind which is why you will see I disappear for a while when my sight is really bad and then return when I can see enough to produce code that may work.

    But to be honest "ass" and rompaths seems to work well to me. perhaps with a prefix of "Pain in the"

    This worked a treat, I made a supposition that each emu had to have just 1 path but this functionality is great.

    I was going to virtualise the whole thing and allow multiple instances of GameZone with user set names to be run, however this has hit a dead end in that I cannot determine the name of the dll file that is being run from within the dll itself, normally you can but not it would seem as a plugin.

    So far I know of:

    1. SMS like key support needs fixing
    2. Dosbox may need some work
    3. Images for files shown in the filelist - will be done as part of v3.0
    4. Menubutton order up down selection fix required. - Done
    5. Main menu wraparound - Done
    6. Xtraemulators support using the display nane of the selected file (used in Final Burn Alpha) - Done




    And thats all.

    If that is it it would seem that I should just look at doing a minor version uppdate as its only bug fixes no additional features.

    Give me your ideas and I will see what I can do.

    Cheers
    It would be nice if when you back out of a rom directory, it would remember which system you were on. Kind of like what was discussed in http://forums.nextpvr.com/showthread.php?t=39648 .

    Also would be nice (if possible) to back out only one screen when hitting the Esc. button. An example would be backing out from the roms screen to system screen with one press of Esc, then from system screen out of the plugin with another press, instead of all the way out of the plugin from the roms screen.

    Thanks much!

    Currently GameZone doesn't handle the ESC key so hence why you see what you do; which is that GBPVR is actually acting on the ESC key rather than GameZone. Therefore the feature you are after is to implemnt the "back" action by using the ESC key, does that sound correct?

    Cheers
