Customize subfolders with image and description

Since version 1.9.0.3 Beta 2, it is necessary to check ARRM folders in the Gamelist Options tab in order to achieve this.
If you edit your gamelist.xml files yourself to add your own <folder> tags, do not check this option

On some systems you can have subfolders, to group according to a theme, a publisher etc your Rom. You can, thanks to this trick, display an image and a description when you position yourself on this Folder in EmulationStation.

Example: You have a Metal Slug subfolder in your neogeo system:

\\recalbox\share\roms\neogeo\Metal Slug\

You will have to put the image relative to the folder with the same name as the .png folder prefixed with 'folder-' Example:

\\recalbox\share\roms\neogeo\Metal Slug\folder-Metal Slug.png

The image is necessary to take this tip into account

You can also put a description of the folder (optional) in a text file (.txt) with the same name as the prefixed folder of 'folder-'

Example:

\\recalbox\share\roms\neogeo\Metal Slug\folder-Metal Slug.txt

This information (folder) will be written at the end of the gamelist.xml file when saving the gamelist.xml

Since version 1.8.9.2 beta 4 the old method no longer works. It consisted of creating a png / txt file with the same name as the directory.

Example:
\\recalbox\share\roms\neogeo\Metal Slug\Metal Slug.png
\\recalbox\share\roms\neogeo\Metal Slug\Metal Slug.txt

Consider modifying your files to use the new method to achieve this: Example:
\\recalbox\share\roms\neogeo\Metal Slug\folder-Metal Slug.png
\\recalbox\share\roms\neogeo\Metal Slug\folder-Metal Slug.txt
