Last week I tried to add a single boolean field to the video database. After 20 hours I gave up in frustration.
Kodi recently achieved the accomplishment of lowering the video database's code count to under 10,000 lines. This is a single file.
The good news is that a new database base layer is in the works. It has its own branch in our github repo: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/commits/feature_odb . It'll probably be months before it's ready.
So I would love to create a zero-configuration Hyperspin experience, but it will be a long time before this is possible.
How about hard coding the coverart/fanart to the same as the rom name as a temp measure to make it look pretty?
