Hello,
the only thing I change was I made all Roms kid friendly from the start.

Hi! Glad you found it usefull! If you want to enable the kid tag, I would suggest a simple find&replace on the gamelist.xml files.

I attempted to scrape the meta-data for the games, I found that this functionality didn’t work, is this true, or did I not compile the correct version of your current code?

There is currently no automatic scraping for the new metadata items favorites, hidden or kid-friendly. The existing scrapers are completely ignorant of these tags as well and will probably ommit them while rewriting the xml files.

Also your modification for the “UIMode_passkey” the only file impacted are?:

..\es-core\src\Window.cpp
..\es-core\src\Window.h
..\es-core\src\Settings.cpp
..\es-core\src\Settings.h

Those are the main ones yes. I suggest you have a look at the repository, that will enable you to compare with other branches, such as the RetroPie one. (https://github.com/zigurana/EmulationStation/tree/UI_modes_Kiosk_Kid_Full)

Btw: this is the correct adres for the wiki:https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/Child-friendly-EmulationStation
