"Option to remove unused library game fields from Library Manager"

Does this mean that you can hide unpopulated Platforms, for instance?


RE: Playnite 7 available in early acces to patrons - Crow - 02-25-2020

Not hide, but completely remove them. Option to hide them will be added in Playnite 8.

"Option to use new banner style backgrounds for Steam games metadata"

Where can I find this option? Poked around but must be looking in the wrong areas.

Select "Banner" as background image source here

I can't believe nobody voted for SOUND haptics in fullscreen mode.

It's not that nobody voted for it, but more people voted for other things. There's a ton of requested features and some are simply going to get implemented later rather then sooner. However, Fullscreen mode specifically is getting more use lately, so I will be putting more effort into it this year.

Fullscreen mode is very good now. It's like having a console now.

You might also want to look into adding a Wishlist section (for desktop mode) like what Razer does with their client.

I pretty much only use their client for getting discounts and switching my power profile before starting a game. I'm sure they get a commission somehow.

You can use https://isthereanydeal.com/ for multi-store wish list. Btw there are some plans to integrate isthereanydeal in future in some form.
