Available Options

DelayReturn=2000 set to delay startup of menu after game in ms, some hardware dmd , DOF and slower systems need to 'wait' after vpx/emu closes to re-init all those devices.

ReturnNext=1 advance to next game on return to emu (1=yes, 0=no)

NoSysFavs=1 to hide system favourites auto-playlist… you would need to make your own.

NoSysLists=1 to hide system lists like most played/mostplayed auto-playlist… you would need to make your own.

EmuExitCount=1 Normally you press the exit emulator key once and it will close emulator/game. You can set this to 2/3 and it will require you to press the exit emulator X times in a row to exit emulator.
