I am working on making a set of emulation players and corresponding DCE plugins to make playing games on the system a first class media type.
What does this mean?
(1) games are selected using the usual file list, and can be searched, filtered, etc.
(2) games being played throughout the house show up on the floorplan
(3) DCE routes appropriate keypresses to the appropriate places, you could play with your Fiire remote in theory.
(4) if i could fenagle MAME states (or other loadable/saveable processor states for emulators etc), Follow Me or Floorplan re-routing would be possible.
but it would have to be implemented on a per emulator/game basis.
the end result would essentially be a set of emulators that would be accessible from LinuxMCE's Add Software menu.
