I was also contemplating opening a new topic for this, despite it having been discussed so much already only to be met with inaction.
I mean, it’s been a long time since I did any programming, but it can’t be THAT difficult to assign a knob to the files listed in one of those plugins and allow users to scroll through and select file names directly on the device. Relative to some of the other wizardry the Mod team has pulled off, anyway. It would be such an improvement in the UX.
But I’m not sure if this solution could be applied here. Mainly because the AIDA-X and IR loaders have a list with non defined number of items: someone can just add a new model or a new IR and every time is required to change the plugin metadata.
