Full Version: Where is the "Open recent" list saved in gvba-m?

I'm using gvba-m to test GBA programs I'm writing for a class. Since, while testing, I'm modifying code and recompiling often, it's convenient to be able to reload the ROM quickly. As such, I use the "Open recent" menu often.

The problem is that my "Open recent" menu has reached its maximum capacity of 10 items, and newly opened ROMs don't overwrite older entries. I'd like to clear this list so that it can be populated with my more recent programs.

I checked $HOME/.config/gvbam, but found nothing that relates to this. I don't see anything else in my home folder that jumps out at me as immediately relevant. Where is this list data located on a Linux system?

afaik it should be .gvbam
Well that's strange, because I don't have a .gvbam. I'm on Arch, if that helps... As I said, I don't see anything in my home directory that looks relevant to gvba-m except for .config/gvbam/ ... which, incidentally, also stores my save files and I can't seem to change that (I like to keep savegames on a partition that's shared between Windows and Linux and symlinked strategically in my home directory)
Look at ~/.recently-used.xbel Smile

That's exactly what I was looking for, chrono. I'm new enough to Linux that I'm not familiar with all the common GTK files yet, but I knew that it must be in something shared by everybody like that since it wasn't anywhere in the gvba-m configuration file. Thanks! I'm applying the patch now.
Figure I would ask here too. Is it possible to erase entries in the "open recent" list? As in, start all over? I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling VBA-M, but that didn't remove the list.
