This looks really good!

However, looks aside, the biggest improvement so far (beyond performance of emulators of course) in my opinion has been the ingame menu and it's options that user pelle7 has introduced.

Please look at that as any large scale project shouldnt be a step back in functionality.

Thanks for the insight!
I take it you are speaking to odroid-go-emu-launcher from pelle7

What i would like to understand is, are you speaking to having an in game menu which would create a HUD inside the emulator?
This is interesting as one could present options like
  • Restart Game
  • Save Slot
  • Load Slot
  • and more

That's the one, in the GB emu for instance theyve added the functions for:
- volume
- save state/load state
- palette settings
- display brightness
- RTC time setting (for games that require real time time shifts.)
- emulation speed adjustment (double speed)

It's made a huge improvement to usability.

Good work.

Can you list shortcuts for save etc.
Menu button seems to be not working maybe wrongly mapped GPIO?

Holy moly, this is -SEXY-! I wish the fonts for the Rom files was a bit bit bigger, and it would be nice to be able to hide emulators that have empty directories, but I really like how this looks! Fantastic work!
