    Hi,

    i would prefer a possibility to delete ROMs from inside of the menu.
    Is that possible?
    It would help me a lot to filter out some games and i have not to connect to the filesystem.

    I think it’s a small but powerful feature and it should be not hard to implement!

    Regards

    You can do this from within EmulationStation.

    Press the select button with a rom highlighted and you can delete it. It’s a bit slow as I believe EmulationStation restarts each time, but it works.

    You can but every time you do this you have to restart EmulationStation. Maybe it can be changed so your not forced to restart ES everytime you delete a single rom!?

    Yeah, restarting is a pain.

    I found the best way when Im auditing ROMs is to have Emulation Station running as normal, and have a PUTTY connect it and delete unnecessary ROMs via the link.

    +1 for this

    On the other hand it would be good to be able to “hide” unwanted roms (especially “bios” files that need to be placed inside /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/

    I just leave a Windows PC connected to \\retropie\roms\<system> and delete whatever roms don’t work. For the changes to be shown, an ES reboot is needed. EmulationStation reads the directory structure and gamelist.xmls only at first boot.
