GUI: Display Seizure Warning popup for known applicable games

Reported by: BallM4788 Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: GUI
Version: Keywords: seizure epilepsy warning accessibility popup window
Cc: Game:


Prior to starting up games known to contain epileptic triggers such as rapid flashing or strobe effects, display a popup notifying the user of this, with an option to return to the launcher. Emphasis on "games known to contain": too many games are supported by ScummVM to dig through all at once. Therefore, the popup warning would need to be applied on a best-effort basis, added to games over time as they become known to contain epileptic triggers.

Mockup of popup contents:
*([ ] = checkbox)

This game is known to contain rapidly flashing lights and/or strobe effects which can possibly cause epileptic seizures. Do you want to continue?

[Return to Launcher]
[ ] Remember my choice for this game.

This might necessitate a new section in the main options menu, in which the user can change behaviors for individual games that were set via the ( ) Remember my choice for this game. option.

If you have such a list of games, please provide them. I am not aware of any such list on any platform or distribution network such as Steam.

Please take into account that even in the supported list, there are currently over 800 games.
