I hope someone feels the same, but I honestly hate how the Loadiine file system is set up. Every game, retro or new, are all smashed into one folder, only knowing which game is which simply by memory. Is there any way or anyone fixing this? I highly doubt there is, seeing as the exploit right now is very limited. But with all the hype of IOSU, anything could happen.

Personally, it would be muhc more easier if games were in their own sub-categories. Example; Wii U games go in Wii U folder. G:/wiiu/games/WiiU/PokkenTournament. Any info or homebrew would be great, thanks.

Once IOSU is released and a loadiine forwarder is made, you could organize them all on the home menu any way you like. Although this isn't the filing system like you're talking about it's probably the place you're going to see the games most. I get sorting games but once you put them in the games folder you never have to touch them again (apart from adding updates or dlc or mods or whatever).

"SD:/wiiu/games/wiiu"

Where's the logic in that?

Perhaps @Maschell could implement a favourites/sub categories akin to wiiflows methods?

I asked @dimok about this a while back as a suggestion to separate wiiu/eshop/VC into separate selectable flows, but I don't think it's any priority for anyone right now.

@brienj another one

It's been said several times, and I'll say it again: The kernel exploit gives you more power than a retail game. Homebrew will not directly benefit from an IOSU exploit. If a piece of homebrew is missing a feature you'd like, it's usually not the exploit's fault, especially if it's something as simple as folder organisation.

I agree that the folder system could use a bit of love, however.

I really wasn't trying to start any arguments, I'm just curious as anybody else is. And what I mean is exactly my example.
G:/wiiu/games/WiiU/Pokken Tournament
G:/wiiu/games/SNES/EarthBound
and so on for other consoles.

Could probably happen in the future, but I don't think its priority.
Who knows? Maybe someone is secretly working on an auto-organiser that analyses your backup and sorts it for you instantly. :P (not me though, not enough time on my hands)

    also gonna install twilight menu in my r4 flashcard
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way
