QuickPlay 3.7.5 Released

Small bug fixing release. Hopefully this will be the last bug fixing release before I start to add/change stuff for 3.8! Fixes include:

- Fixed bug where editing emulators after going through the firstrun wizard renamed all emulators..

- Changed default romlist colours back to 'standard' window colours. go to options and click "default" to reset these colours.

- Changed behaviour of file picker when adding in compression support. Now u just get "all formats" instead of a separate entry for zip, rar, etc..

QuickPlay 3.7.2 Released

Another new version of the multi-emulator frontend, new in this version -

Changes:
-ZiNc support. Just go to "Arcade ROMs" in the menu, and "Scan for ZiNc ROMs"
-Re-instated "use QP temp directory for extraction" setting. Work-around for a bug where if you have a zipped copy of a game, and an unzipped copy in the same folder, QuickPlay will extract the zipped version over the unzipped version, and then delete it.
-Added right-click menu for GoodMerge "ROMs inside Archive", a lot of the menu entries do nothing, this is by design!
-Fixed - No Tabs setting wasnt sticking..
-Fixed - Run Dialog was wiping out emulator compression settings.
-Fixed - When adding new emulators, the compression options werent loading.
-Fixed - uncompressed games wont run in a GoodMerge folder.
-Fixed - Changing the default emulator in the "directory mirroring" didnt change the emulator for ROMs
