GUI: Game Sortation: Icons and Alignment

Cc: Game:


Rather annoying when using multiple versions with different languages and different platforms: Additions like (DOS/VGA/CD/German) after every game version. It would need a bigger modification in the GUI, but it would look much better if these infos could be displayed by an icon. It would require a flag icon for the language, a floppy/cd icon and a platform icon. DOS CGA/EGA/VGA versions could be shown by a DOS prompt icon with a letter on it (C/E/V), Amiga versions could be shown by the classic v// logo for OCS and the Boingball for AGA versions. The icons could still be stored in the game name by using some special characters beginning with % or something else. Example:

The Secret of Monkey Island%ra%pv %mc %lf

%ra - right align, everything after this is right-aligned. If it's available as an style it also would allow right-aligned text. %pv - platform vga %mc - media cd %lf - language french.

An icon for speech or sound output would be possible. The icons should be as small as possible and without free pixels at the left and right side, spaces in the game name could be used for seperating the icons.

We have icons-based GUI as our GSoC task, thus, closing this as we have other means of tracking this request.
