#7289 closed feature request (wontfix)

GUI: Order games manually

Reported by: SF/logicdeluxe Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: GUI

Cc: Game:


As I notice the entries in scummvm.ini are allways sorted alphabetically. Would it be possible to disable that ordering? If would be nice if one can sort the entries manually and the GUI should display the games in the same order. For example I like to see the games listed primary by its language and secondary by release dates. Maybe you could let the scummvm.ini stay autosorted as it is and add a position variable for each game. For example: [monkey2] path=C:\mi2\ position=2

[loomcd] path=C:\loom\ position=1

When the GUI sorts that by positions then it would display loomcd first and then goes on with monkey2 according to the position entries. Of course there should be a possibility of displacing the entries within the GUI, so there would be no need to edit scummvm.ini manually. I know, I could put a number before each game name in the description variable as well, but that doesn't look that nice.

Max, recently you expressed idea that it is sorted on purpose. May you, please, comment and unassign yourself (just making sure that you will read this)

The entries in scummvm.ini are in fact not sorted alphabetically, but rather ScummVM will attempt to keep the sorting exactly as it was.

In my oppinon, there is little to be gained by allowing custom (manual) sorting to the launcher. OTOH I can easily imagine lots of people getting confused by this...

So in this case I think we should follow the good old KISS principle :-)
