    I've updated retroInvader with some fixes and a few cool new features.

    1. Options for per-core & per-Game auto-configuration generation. These actually exceed retroarch's native abilities.
    2. Mednafen cd-core auto-.CUE creation for disc images.
    3. Run-History to auto-run ROMs for cd-images and other files for which cores are not automatically associated eg: (.iso/.img/.cdi/.bin/.cue/.zip/.rom/etc..)
    Added playlist creation.
    MAME romsets will recieve proper names (game description names) in playlists.
    Added netplay hosting/connecting functionality.
    Added Drag & Drop hosting
    Added an updater.
    Now leverages archive.org's ROM-libraries for local and netplay
    XPadder and antimicro keymappers supported for 360/XBO/DShock joysticks.
    Bugfixes and menu optimizations.
    any .7zip/.rar/.zip compressed ROM with a recognizable extension inside is now automatically identified and launched via drag & drop.

    Added a core-system relationship editor to allow users to define the core associated with a system.

    Main-Menu ->Config->Core->Setup: Select a system, then select a core to associate with that system. Squeezie lemons.
