Moved "Wishlist" below playlists, and moved "Favorites" to below "Continue Playing" and "Recently Added" for better organization.
Added Element Module inserted icon. When an Element Module is inserted into your Polymega Base Unit, an EM icon will now appear in the top right corner of the screen, and flash until the EM has fully initialized. If a cartridge is inserted, the EM icon will turn into a pulsing cartridge icon while file operations are performed.
Added better messaging for system operations that take a long time to complete, such as performing a Factory Reset.
Added a pulsing animation to the Polymega icon when CD game patching is in progress.
Added a marquee scrolling text animation for long game titles that exceed the visible length of the UI where it is displayed.
Added a Safe Eject command for external logical drives such as SD Cards, USB Sticks, etc. Previously, removing an external drive would occasionally put the drive in a state that has to be "repaired" when inserting into a Windows PC. Now you can remove your drives without introducing these errors by using the Safe Eject option before removal. This option can be found in the Storage Settings screen.
Added the ability to Format any external logical drive at any time. Previously you could only Format a drive if it was in an uninitialized state, such as when it is brand new out of the box from the factory. Now, you can format any external logical drive any time you want. This option can be found in the Storage Settings screen.
Added a unique icon that differentiates your M.2 SSD from the other external logical drives on display in the Storage Settings screen.
