Re: Your Perfect Front End?

@Draco1962 - Thanks for the detail- all good stuff. When you say intuitive controls setup - is that meaning the controls for the front end (game pads and keyboard, I'm imagining?)

Re: Nightmare day brought back from the brink....

apocalypse-1400x788.jpg   Apocalypse now!  Well, nearly. Urgh - what a day. Following on from my last post, made some great progress with ASP.net MVC. Spent a couple of days looking into this and it's a very usable tool.  However, had a devastating turn this morning where I thought I'd lost a lot o...

Database doldrums....

Blurgh... things have taken a bit of a different tac. Firstly, I've decided to explore asp.net MVC for my website as I just want to cut the cord from wordpress for my main site. Just too clunky.

Useful info before posting

Use the emulator specific forums (e.g. MAME and RetroArch) for specific emulators that tend to generate a lot of posts. Put all other emulator queries in the general Emulator setup forum. Some useful links when trying to figure out emulator stuff: OmniGameZ Wiki : Check out the "Emulator Setups" sec...

Re: Your Perfect Front End?

😁 👍 Awesome t! Yep - that should all be do-able with the wysiwyg editor - carousels are going to be one selector choice alongside just normal list boxes, but also toying with the idea of including a rotary selector.
