gtk-based file select dialog is known for its suckiness and
Dolphin-like menu would be really sweet. and with menu like that you may hapilly forget about "recent files" thingy.
auto-renaming would be nice by first thought but really all you can get from image is serial and region info.
title, year, etc. is still up to you to find manually and with Windows refusing to handle ":' and other characters from titles it doomed to be handicapped (can be replaced with "_" or "-", etc. with Windows).
PS rips can be in at least 3 different formats (iso, bin/cue, img/sub) not counting compression and stuff like ecm. and stuff like bin/cue can have slightly different internal structure (means also a different hash) but still be recognised and correctly
working in emulator.
so,. hash recognision is no good. serial, on the other hand, can suffice... it's easy to get serial from image, right ? then we can get title, version, edition and languages info and do some renaming or at least show them nicely in the menu (with caching
that queried data for local entries, of course).
and you can do additional query with hash if you want to make sure you get correct image from on-line, filling "status' field/indicator.
so, it not has to be only bin/cue. and i'm also hope pcsx-r devs will improve UI eventially and without falling into "rewriting frontends" haze like many other emulator devs do while forgetting about quality of actual emulation (there is still
some freezing/crashing problems left).
