Hi All,

I have all my personal collections custom-doom.cfg, custom-oldschool.cfg working with RetroBat - however using a theme that does not support collection the expectation ES will put custom collection in general "collections" bucket which is working as expected.

However, for example from main theme I see 2 collections but unfortunately it's not nested inside the "collections" bucket meaning I expect to see Doom and Oldschool in "collections" theme instead i see entire list of games non-nested. Is this normal with retrobat and is there any way to have custom collections that theme does not support to show as nested? I tried "group unthemed collection custom collections" option in collection as well it makes it worst as you see it collection without artwork because theme does not support it.

@f.caruso

It seems the ES implementations of Batocera (used in RetroBat) and Retropie have different behaviours regarding enabling option "Group Unthemed Custom Collections". I have attached screenshots of the same theme and collections on Retropie and Retrobat for comparison.

Batocera / Retrobat : all unthemed collections are merged into a single Custom Collection (which kind of misses the point of why collections are made?)

Retropie : nests all unthemed custom collections under Custom Collection (i.e. we can still use collections even if not supported by current theme)
