ZXMameCD 0.48 with QMC2 0.1.b11 SVN released

Armin Schmidhuber wrote in to inform that ZXMameCD 0.48 (32-bit) has been released today. It includes SVN revision 240 of QMC2 (0.1.b11), which is currently under development.

Armin also sent a KHotKeys (KDE) definition file for QMC2, which can be downloaded from the download section. Simply import this file into KHotKeys, redefine your keys according to your cabinet controller (an X-Arcade stick for example) and control QMC2 w/o a keyboard.

Note that this is meant to be used as a temporary workaround for QMC2’s yet missing keyboard & shortcut remap functionality. It is planned to be included in 0.1.b11 final, so it will not require KDE when it’s finished.

INI/RC import & export, new preview image packages

The current SVN revision (r240+) includes a new feature to import/export global and game-specific MAME configuration files (mame.ini/gamename.ini in case of SDLMAME, or xmamerc/gamenamerc in case of XMAME). This enables you to easily exchange MAME configurations between different QMC2 installations, and to run MAME with the exact same setup regardless if it is launched via QMC2 or from the command line (or how ever).

Also note that the preview packages have been updated to include images for over 6400 games. See download section!
