I've always like the choose random rom feature of
mame32. It would be best if you could randomly choose
within categories.

Thanks for the project, it is great already.

    No problem. It should be easy to implement it. Could you
    tell me more about this feature?

    When you say "choose a random rom", do you mean to say
    "select and play a random rom" ? or do you mean to say
    "select a random rom" ?

    Sorry for the lack of clarity-"Select and play" would be
    preferable. I don't know if this was clear, also, but the
    feature would be dependent upon which category was already
    selected, so if you were looking at shooters, it would
    randomly select and play a shooter.

    This is another feature request, but it is related. Could
    there be an "Unplayed" category, like the already existing
    "Played" category?. These two features combined means that
    you go play all the games in random order.

    Thanks again

    I think a "Select random ROM" function without auto-play
    would be pretty cool. One could check the snapshot, then
    chose to play or jump to the next random in an instant.

    Limiting the random ROM to the current category and adding
    an "unplayed originals" category would be perfect, but is
    optional.
