I would like to make a new "page" to add demos; I installed the PCUAE manager on my windows machine, although I am not sure how you manage the existing collections/pages, and how you add more.
I was able to remove all the games I don't really play; so now most of my existing pages have few games, and I could benefit from merging some of these games into other pages, as I think the max you can display in carousel mode is 100?
Also creating a new section for demos or applications would be nice, but I am not sure how you do that. Suggestions?
The best way to achieve this would probably be, adding the desired games or demos to PCUAE Manager, then selecting them all, Edit -> Edit viewtag, then giving them a uniform tag. Next, you click on the three dots next to the gameview selection at the top of the left window. There you add a new gameview and add a filter to display all of the games and demos you just gave a new viewtag. Under File -> Export you export the newly created gameviews to your USB stick's carousel folder (main carousel folder, not a subfolder). That would be it. Everything else you would like to do works in a similar fashion.
Thanks; but how do you tell PCUAE manager to make "pages"? I understand that there is a limit to how many entry you can have on carousel; so does the manager automatically break down a gameview I set, even if it has more entries than what you can display, or do I need to keep track of the max number?
You have to keep track. There is a "patch" for having 255 files on each "page" here: thec64community.online/post/13056/thread. But each gameview can only contain so many files. So first, you add games with the proper names. They will be listed in alphabetical order. Then you tag them, then you create gameviews using a filter that automatically adds them when they are tagged accordingly (you can also swap the order of these steps). It is a little bit of work, but it works quite well when you select a big chunk of games at once.
Thanks to both; will give it a spin and try to create my own views using your suggestions and the manual.
As wishlist item, if the manager app could do all the work; including fetch info from the internet, screenshots, create automatically views and pages and such; it would really be awesome. I use Launchbox on my pc for most of my emulators, so got spoiled with automated features Thanks again.

c64aa: Is there a trick to play dual sided games in the d64 format on the c64 mini? Most of the games I want to play are only available in multiple files and I read back when the mini was released there was no way to play dual sided games

george2514: Suika Game plays similarly to Sega's Puyo Puyo Tetris, Suika Game in which you have to line up matching fruits to make them disappear before the basket overflows.
