    I know there's an option to manually add categories yourself, but is there a way for USBLGX to automatically categorise say all WiiWare/GC/VC etc titles together so that you end up with folder-structure system? eg VC->N64

    No sorry :(

    Another users already requested such features, but I didn't look at it yet.
    It's currently only sorted globally (not per categories or origin).

    i think alot of people can keep wanting lol no offence but would be more pointless work then needed. i dont see any problem with having vc and wiiware alphabetically in one menu and so on with you gc/wii games. one kl things would be if you could play your emulators through usbloadergx (i no you can already) but have the covers show instead of having to load straight into your emulator from usbloadergx

    I think it'd really help anyone with a large library - it makes things a hell of a lot easier to find + you can choose what sort of thing you want to play first as opposed to a certain game eg 'I feel like something retro today *clicks VC folder* Ah, how about some N64?' That's how my brain works most the time anyway

    okay i understand your point but how about this. use wad files for all wiiware games and then use your emulater which supply more then they do as vcware. doing this would then have each type of computer game seperate :)

    Good plan but for more powerful consoles such as the N64 the VC ports are usually more stable + Also you're still left with Wii/Gamecube/WiiWare/Homebrew/Channels

    all of these can be split and configed the only thing you have correct is the N64 emulator doesnt work too well so ye for the time being use vc wads for N64 games (im hopeing the wii u could bring a nice surprise with an N64 emulator if someone was whiling to take it on)

    Yeah that'd be perfect! (but with a VC tab and possibly secondary tabs in the VC section for different consoles?)

    that looks quality :). would there be any chance of adding a similar thing like plugins? and then also have them in seperate tabs? this would be sexy!!! lol

    I also plan to add plugins (but I don't know when I'll do it. Like most feature request :ph34r: ).
    The tabs like I see them are not fixed values, they will be empty and the user can add or delete tabs (or something else than tabs, I still don't know how I'll add this feature) where you set your own preferences/game choice/ etc in order to quickly switch full preferences easily (letting you switch category quickly can be used to make a "kid's game" tab, and one "Adult's game" password-locked tab, etc.)
    So you can create one tab with Wii games, another one with plugins, etc. You choose.

    Though, I don't think I'll do sub-tabs. It will not be a "VC tab" + "sub-tabs per consoles". it's tabs with different memorized preferences.
