I’m very happy that retro game emulation is now a native component of Kodi and thus of OSMC. Gameplay is excellent. Bluetooth controllers work great.
However I don’t understand the need for messy ROM launchers. Why aren’t games just another content type of the regular content library? Will that feature come later? I find the current recommended solution incoherent with the system as a whole.

If they are ZIP based you need to adjust the “ZIP” assignment otherwise they are wrongly understood as Videos
