You could though, set maybe 4 in total?
For any entries that have 2, only 2 will show.
But! What if you made a new png/icon yourself?
One for Notes or readme, one for manual/PDF?
So, you could then include some notes, maybe controls, etc.
Or notes for anyone to make on the game.
Maybe cheats?

Or launch a url?
If you create a url file, say, call it HOL.URL, and set it to the URL for the game in HOL,

and rename your sshot.png to ___data_hol.url.png
You still show 2 pictures, but, clicking the screenshot now will bring you to the HOL entry for the game!
Nifty!
(Obviously, you could make a URL icon/image too, with a HOL logo on it, etc)

If you wanted to be real fancy, you could include a manual:
Say, call it manual.pdf
Then, take a screenshot of the cover manual, and call it ___data_manual.pdf.png
and now, in WinUAE, clicking on the picture manual will launch the PDF :D


For Monkey Island, you could launch url to an online code wheel, using a picture of the codewheel!


Something like this: Obviously the txt button at the bottom is quick and dirty. New WinUAE Example

To be totally honest; I'm happy with just 2 i.e. a title and sshot.

Also, some of my <gamedirs> already contains cheats / level codes / manuals / walkthroughs etc. and I'm happy with how people view them i.e:

To view these from WinUAE, right-click on the title bar of the "boxart" panel and select "Open Game Folder":

Boo! Embrace the change DamienD :agree :p

Toni, is it intentional that only one data link works when there's more than one onscreen?
So, I made two buttons: One for readme, one for URL on Poeut,
and only the bottom one launches if the list is onscreen.

Photo Link

If I left click on any data image, however, in single image mode, it launches fine.

(Still useful, but far less obvious to most people?)

Nope, there's no way in hell that I'm going through my collection and adjusting files for these new features...

That would mean scanning through 3040 games / directories and making numerous changes within.

It's taken me 15 years to get where I'm currently at... I'm not about to spend a few months focusing on this for little gain.

I have better things to do; like researching / adding in more games :p

No but I need complete folder structure in a zip. Not going to bother with a test case as usual :)

Well, ok!

Attached a config and adf, with files, pictures, etc etc.

The uae config path is relative, so, should work anywhere?
