I had also initially thought of installing an on-screen virtual keyboard (just like the 'Search' panel, which would filter out systems or groups containing these letters as you type.

Alternatively (and perhaps more intuitively for most people), simply set the preferences so that you can opt for a 'large', 'medium' or 'small' display of systems.

Here's an image which could, for example, correspond to the display (medium or small)


I'm thinking of going for the latter. What do you all think?

Yes I am aware of the search engine in Runway.
What I was thinking is this .
Let us say you finished playing The sof Tom Sawyer on NES. Now you want to play Legend ofZelda on Gamecube,
You hit the "?" button (or whatever) a dialogue box comes up. You type Gamecube, press enter and it takes you top the Gamecube page.

Hi Rob!
First of all, thank you so much for your last message!
Believe me, coming from you, whom I now "know" a little... it's a great source of pride to receive your compliments!

I won't hide from you that I'm terribly busy at the moment...but I'll make it a point of honor to try and fulfill all your requests!
But don't hesitate to refresh my memory if things aren't going fast enough ;)

First of all, I'll have to deal with the systems you list here  :) (I suppose this list is based on the previous one you posted!?)

I assume you're talking here in the context of mGalaxy itself, not mGalaxy_Runway? Or both, perhaps?

In mGalaxy_Runway, I could add a filter field, like there is for emulators?

I'd like to take this opportunity to remind you that the search performed here is based on the emulator name as well as on the systems emulated by the emulators!
In other words, if I start typing 'ata', mGalaxy_Runway will show emulators that include these letters AND emulators that emulate a system including these letters!

Concerning mGalaxy itself, I'll have to think about a system that allows you to do this using only the cursors (or joystick) and the enter key (or button)...since you know that all navigation in mGalaxy is based on this system...but I'll think about it!
Here again, I remind you...but I know you couldn't have missed it ;) that you can already speed things up slightly by choosing to filter only on a 'type' of system (group, arcade, console, computer).

Though it is hard to improve on perfection, here are some thoughts for the nest upgrade
 added systems

Another Arcade Emulator
Entex Adventure System
Mattel Aquarius
Mega Duck
Sega ST-V
Sony Pocket Station
Xbox 360
PS3
Acorn BBC Micro
And though I added it to mine (just a  few lines of code) add XEMU to X B0x it is a much better emulator

</Emulator>
<Emulator name="XEmu" hidden="false">
      <Systems>
         <System name="Microsoft Xbox" option="" script="false" cmd="-m -k %volume(0,100) &quot;%path%slash%file%ext&quot;" extensions="iso"/>
      </Systems>
      <Requirement>
         <b>To set the emulator to fullscreen</b>
</Emulator>

Also you know what would be so cool.

Just a few ideas for the next version
