 +==== A little 'hack' to customize media for System Playlists (favs): ====
 +
 +here's a little 'hack' to make those playlists media available to manage.\\
 +\\
 +1> playlist manager. under a sub playlist or anywhere you create 3 playlists and set them as visible=false with no tables or other config\\
 +2> the trick is that you must name them exactly "favs", "mostplayed", "mostrecent". (without quotes)\\
 +3> they will not appear in frontend as they are not visible. but you will find them in media manager now and media should work.
 +
 +**OR** you could just handle the media manually(no playlists) as they should be "pl_favs" , "pl_mostplayed", "pl_mostrecent"… but its so much easier to do via media manager

 put that in your launch sub-folder. and in your launch script after you do your thing, run this forcereturn.exe. It will emulate the game starting, and exiting 1-2 seconds later so Popper returns cleanly. you don't need anything in your closescript as it will auto-return to popper menu. put that in your launch sub-folder. and in your launch script after you do your thing, run this forcereturn.exe.
