Seems to me that the "playlist" is in this case intended as a list of favorites.

technically, I should be blocking the ESC key, but it's a vestige left over from the fact that the program is wrapped. It would be inconsistent to have the stop button be off, the Off menu item be off, and have the ESC button be "Go to next in playlist"

if you want to go to the next one in the playlist:

* use the up and down rocker buttons on your remote
* use the media button or F6 to go to the on-screen playlist view and select the next game.
* select it via manage playlist
* select it from the visible playlist menu on one of the orbiters (I've even done this on my Cisco phone)

Thom,
much thanks.  I was looking at mythgame, but this is much more elegant!
good show.

for those who haven't been following the developer threads:

The MAME plugin is nearing a first release. The majority of the work has been done, and I am doing the necessary HADesigner work for all the orbiters (yes, every single variation).... Sans the Designer changes, the necessary bits have been pushed to our sqlcvs server, and will show up in the 0710 release... the code is in SVN for those interested...and I will be working to get it rolled into the package system after the 0710 release.

For now, some Youtube movies to tide you guys over:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knachk4FcLc <-- the first video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LQcQ9ecTLk <-- Infra-Red remotes work now!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXfJlnut4r0 <-- Parents Monitor Mode, Part I
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ji8zzUY5zM <-- Monitor Mode II, even from the Cisco Phone!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xx25HgCQt_U <-- Preliminary Atari 5200 Games support!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjwEj6DwV_8 <-- Star Wars on the WiiMote!

I will be posting more, soon!

Did you not post a video of this on youtube? I could swear I have seen it.
So is this currently working? I just installed linuxmce and am pretty new to it but this is a feature I most definitely want.
How can I get it to work?

Having MAME integrated into LinuxMCE will be an awesome new feature. I just wanted to thank you for making it possible.

Thank you. it's very time consuming because of the sheer amount of integration work and testing involved, but it is worth it. Primarily because I am dead set against seeing most anything appear in the Computing window.

MAME will be the first type implemented, with MESS being added on soon after (with specific emulator types added on one by one.) Not every emulator can be a candidate for being added, most of them are very cantankerous badly written beasts, who tend to take over the screen, have no source code, or have very little way to integrate wanted features. (The biggest problem is that most emulators don't make a window that can be resized by window management to full screen, much less stacked, this is crucial to orbiter integration.)....

anyway, it's been a long time in the making. I've had to pause work on it because of release duties, but there is enough of it that an early beta can be grafted onto existing 0710 installations (thankfully the majority of the database work required was already done by the time that 0710 was plucked for release.), but I will return to improving it soon, alongside my work with the IM system.

The IM system?  Do have a link for that.  It sounds like a feature of interest.

Out of curiosity, is there a chance this Media type will be integrated in the next release?
