New Name and Logo!
Bottlenose has been renamed to Nostlan, a portmanteau of "nostalgia launcher". As Bottlenose grew from being just a Dolphin frontend the name, logo, and branding confused people. I still really liked the name Bottlenose and was reticent to change it but now that this app supports so many different emulators it doesn't make sense. I decided to take the community's good advice and renamed the project. To go with the new name I've also made a new logo which is a minimalistic abstract logo of a disc spinning. It partially retains the vaporwave aesthetic of the old logo.
MAME sets of the same game will no longer load as separate games
If you have the full MAME library and used v1.2 of Nostlan you may have noticed a lot of duplicate covers. This is because a full MAME library includes different versions aka "sets" of arcade games. I have figured out a decent way of removing duplicate sets of the same game so for now Nostlan will only be able to play one version of a game, the first version found in your MAME game library. In a future update I will make a version selector that will let you select the "set" of the game.

Hi my name is Quinton and this is the part where I beg you for money! Even though I decided to make this project open source and free to use, it still took a lot of work and a long time to develop. If you appreciate my work so far and will continue to use Nostlan please donate an amount of your choosing. If everyone that downloads this update gave me even $1 I would really appreciate it. Cloud saving is coming soon for Patreon supporters. Thank you!
