OK, good to hear that it's fixed.  I'm logging of now; that's enough work on Stella for today :)

Sorry, I can't duplicate what you're seeing.  This is what I do:

  1. Disable 'List quick delay' and exit/restart the app.
  2. Map 'Move Up' to 'r', and 'Move Down' to 'f'.
  3. When I press 'r' or 'f' in a list, it now moves up or down, just as if the cursor keys were pressed.

If this still isn't working, I need to see your stella.ini file and a video showing exactly what you mean.

WRT the ZIP file functionality in the ROM launcher, it currently only allows to go one level deep.  So the only way to go one level deep and show all levels is to compress the path and name into one string for further (sub)-directories.  The ideal solution is obviously what you suggest, in that it should work just as if the file wasn't zipped, and descend into directories one at a time.  I will look into this for the next release.


As for the slowness (and general functionality) of the search box, it needs to be improved on many levels.  I'd like to add regular expressions to it, have it match on directories too, etc.  This may be a bit further out, as I have other things I need to work on before then.

OK, the following build enables both options in the UI.  The 'listdelay' command can now be set to 0 (or 'disabled' in Options -> UI Settings -> Misc -> List quick delay).  Note that this is a global feature; it disables list-skipping in all lists.


Also, the 'ctrlcombo' option is now available through the UI, at Options -> Input Settings -> Devices & Ports -> Use Control key combos.

It should be easy enough to add an option to disable 'list-snapping'.  In fact, the code itself already allows to do this, but it hasn't yet been exposed as a setting.


Also, that ctrlcombo thing should really have a GUI option to change it.  I'll look into that too.
