Feature request: please retain capitalization.
For example, the file name "Super Mario All Stars" imports as "Super mario all stars".
Could it maintain the uppercase first letters of the file name, instead of subsequent letters being converted to lowercase?

im lovin this. it rocks !!!
leo thanks for all the effort !!!
im running xbmc on 2 kubuntu 8.10 boxes both w/ SVN 18324
one is my desktop & one is a dedicate XBMC box in the living room
there is still 1 issue i can not sort out ...
the launcher works great with ROMs named "game" or "this-game"
but it will not load ROMs named "this game"
i hope escaping special chars isn't too tough ?
if i wasn't a total n00b, id dig into the python myself
unfortunately my skilz max out at find & replace
let me know if you want a bug in the google code
or if anything else would help getting this fixed
BTW ... i had to change all the paths in launcher_plugin.py to get it working
& i removed the extra " on line 168 mentioned in one of these 18 pages
here's a diff
PS. im not sure step 2 in the install is required or if differs by distro ?
for me libcurl.so libcurl.so.3 & libcurl.so.4 are all sim linked to libcurl.so.4.1.0

thank you all for the patches and workarounds.
I'll try to fix Launcher as soon as I can to work with the special tags.
meanwhile you can open bugs and feature requests in :

some path issues were fixed.
it still using the old P:\ syntax.
will be updated to use "special://" paths after XBMC 9.04 will be released.
Tested and working stable under Windows with XBMC 8.10

Hey Leo thanks for throwing up a new version so quick
launcher hangs XBMC when opened in linux
log >> [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/usr/share/xbmc/UserData'
i figured out how to get it working w/ this "patch"@issue9 on your goggle page...
but i have no idea how to help implement a fix, sorry
ROMs w/ spaces in the filename still dont work too
Launcher is awesome
sadly it only loads 12% of my roms right now
this active thread speaks to your efforts and how far it has come
thanks again for this primo awesome
plugin w/ search & thumbs and switches
B+ .... for now

Special paths have been added some long time ago, I think they work as it should, why not update the script to use them right now, it shouldn't be so hard to update a few paths, I think...
Just wondering, you must have your reasons... Haven't tested this yet but will do when I got the chance...

special paths doesn't work with 8.10 version.
only "P:\\" "Q:\\", etc.

I'm not talking about 8.10. I'm talking about development versions, the builds you get from the SVN that people compile themselves or get from the this topic:
8.10 is very old and as someone in the development team told me some time ago, "8.10 is obsolete".
Running MAME with Launcher - pseudoheld - 2009-03-30 11:19
ok the new launcher version works fine. now all i want to know is what mame versions you use together with Launcher.
i want to have a version wich has the ability to launch games directly via launcher not just to open up m mame programm and then start a game from its menu.
so basically i need a version of mame that would be able to directly open the .zip romfile.
ive tried mameui32 and mameuifx and both give me error messages if i try to open the .zip files directly.
i hope you understood what i want

8.10 cannot be obsolete as long as it's the latest stable version of XBMC.
This is absolutely wrong to break plugin from working with the latest stable version.
anyway, translatePath should handle P:\\ even in the svn versions.
maybe XBMC guys should release stable versions more often.
