Vas WIP: enhanced software selection menus
01/19/19 03:03 AM


The next release of MAME will support icons for software list entries, and enhanced ICO file support including PNG-in-ICO with alpha transparency. Software icons go in a subdirectory of the icon path. For example, if your icon path is icons, you should put your Game Boy software icons in the directory icons/gameboy/ or the archive icons/gameboy/icons.zip and your V.Smile cartridge icons in the directory icons/vsmile_cart/ or the archive icons/vsmile_cart/icons.zip (the filename for individual icons should be the shortname of the software item with the extension .ico appended.

For example here's the Game Boy software selection menu with some icons for illustrative purposes:


Software favourites in the machine selection menu show the icon of the system they'll launch on (I have no icon for Zorba, Super Mario Land and Tetris will launch Game Boy, and Link's Awakening will launch Game Boy Color):


The software selection menus may also be filtered on favourites now. This will include compatible faourite software that's set to launch a different system. For example, filtering Game Boy Color software for favourites includes Super Mario Land and Tetris which are set to launch of Game Boy from the main favourites menu:


Hopefully someone finds this useful or fun. I'm not in a position to be producing icon packs for this, but if someone does I'd love to see them.
