What's this?
Its a set of one-screenshot-per-game snaps of games that are in the Good collection, one of QuickPlay's main feature when it started out was support for the GoodMerged sets (where every rom ever found was collected for a game in one zip), and a lot of people still use it exclusively for GoodMerged

How do I use this?
You just set up the system you want to play in QuickPlay, do a rom scan for a GoodMerge collection, and then link to the right system's screenshots folder in the media panel. Since there's only one shot per game, you can set the media panel to just show a screenshot and not a slideshow or tiles or anything else. The idea of one-screenshot is just simplicity: its to give you an idea whether you might want to play the game so its always an in-game screenshot

Anything else to think about
Once you've setup these screenshots for a system, things get even better if you use Romdata Magician as it can fill in a romdata with all kinds of ROM trivia - find it in the Tools sidebar in QuickPlay
Lastly if you look at cowering's site you'll notice that quite a few systems have updates, your help is needed to update these screenshots as a project....get in contact...
