How do you favorite and set start up collection in Retro Arcade 2?

I am using Retro Arcade 2 and I can’t for the life of me figure out how to add a game to my favorites, and then launch into favorites. When going through each game I should be able to press “I” to add it to favorites but it doesn’t seem to do anything (no heart icon etc.). 

As for starting up on a specific collection, it always starts on “All” no matter what I set firstCollection= to in the settings.conf (note I found firstCollection in two settings files so I set them both the same). I have tried:

firstCollection = ArcadeClassics
firstCollection = Arcade Classics
firstCollection = _ArcadeClassics

But nothing works (ideally I’d like it to be firstCollection = favorites if favorites actually existed, which it doesn’t seem to).

Any help appreciated!

Edit: In case anyone is curious how to do this, the only way I found out to do it is as follows:

1. Go into the collection folder for the type you are running it with (ie All Arcades + Consoles Balanced). 
2. Edit menu.txt and move where you want the first collection to be (I put Arcade Classics first).
3. Go into the collection folder in #2. In my example, I went into ArcadeClassics folder.
4. Edit “favorites.txt” and just add/delete the game title you want/don’t want in any order you want. 

If anyone has an easier way I’m all ears 🙂
