    Is it possible to incorporate support for subdirectories in WBFS? It'd be nice to organize games by genre, etc, by placing ISOs in different subfolders.

    That would be easier done in a loader, if enough people want, some one will add to one of the existing loaders. It be cool in the coverflow one. But wouldn't be hard to add to any of the current one, since you'd add a text file describing the genre, like the renaming or graphic linking or etc..

    I don't want to add tags to ISOs, etc. I'm talking about creating actual folders on the WBFS partition.

    No, that wouldn't be possible without reworking WBFS entirely. The only thing that could happen is to have a loader that would allow you to define a "directory structure" that it would emulate when you browsed through your game.

    WBFS IS NOT A NORMAL FILE SYSTEM. IT DOES NOT WORK LIKE A NORMAL FILE SYSTEM.
