This is no longer the case. I will not make the frontend detect device entries anymore, except for machines that have the softwarelist tags.
Emu Loader will only detect softwarelist tags and create games lists for each machine that uses them. And I will only make use of the .xml files in MAME's 'hash' folder.
Then, I'll use AntoPISA's new MESS category_full.ini to filter arcade and non-arcade sets. Since he's going to keep that file updated, if users want to see only arcade or only non-arcade games, it will be a lot easy with AntoPISA .ini file
This the best solution...
