UPDATE (Gui_Modes_v4)
I’ve just pushed my latest changes to my repository. If you run the install-script via retropie-setup -> option 4 ‘Experimental Packages’ -> option 306 emulationstation-kids, you will be able to download and install it.

This update includes the visualization of the metadata items Favorite, Hidden, and Kidgame using simple icons:

To see these changes, you will also need to update your theme(s). To make a start, I’ve updated the Carbon theme to include these new elements (had to push things around a bit).
You can download it here (I hope this does not break my Dropbox account due to over-usage 😉 )

In any case, it is not perfect, but I am not really the artistic type, I leave that in the good hands of other willing to play. Make sure you increase the xml formatversion number (specified on the second line) to 4.

I would be most gratefull if you could give this a try, and report any difficulties/bugs you might encounter.

Known issues:

  • Somehow, with my setup, the binding of x and y gets lost and I need to rebind the buttons via “Configure Input”, if I want to use these buttons to quickly toggle the fav / kidgame values. I would be interested if others see the same behaviour.
