Updated templates for (SDL)MESS 0.136

Updated templates for (SDL)MESS 0.136 have been committed to SVN. Here are the quick links to the updated templates (use save link as in your browser):

Replace these files in the QMC2 0.2.b13 source tree and reinstall it, or put them in the paths where they have been installed. The default installation places them below /usr/local/share/qmc2/opt/… on UNIX and Mac OS X; on Windows, just replace these files within the sub-directory structure of where QMC2 has been installed or extracted.

Happy new year / QMC2 0.2.b13 released

Happy new year everybody!

Today we proudly announce the release of QMC2 0.2.b13. This version incorporates a number of interesting new features as well as a major overhaul of great parts of the code to get rid of some long-standing bugs and restrictions.

The most important changes since 0.2.b12 include:

  • Emulator configuration widgets now use check-boxes (instead of the former combo-boxes) for all boolean settings — thanks to Bill Blake for the suggestion
  • During a session, the item expansion state and scroll bar values of game- or machine-specific emulator configurators are preserved
  • Except for icons in menus, all static icons are now adjusted to the size of the current application font (even icons on the tool bar)
  • You can now specify a separate font for all log browsers (mono-spaced fonts are recommended)
  • X11 & SDLMAME/SDLMESS only: optional / on-demand embedding of emulator windows through XEmbed (includes related features such as an easy snapshot tool — additional features are planned or under consideration)
  • Support for additional (foreign) emulators which can be used on a per-game/per-machine basis (among others, this includes support for XMAME/XMESS for those who may still care 😉 )
  • New Portuguese translation — thanks to Marcelo Bossoni
  • Quite a number of important bug-fixes, work-arounds and further improvements

This version is in sync with SDLMAME/MAME/MAMEUIFX 0.136 and SDLMESS/MESS 0.135 (as always, template updates for (SDL)MESS 0.136 will be posted here later when required).

See the change-log for more information.

Have fun,

The QMC2 dev-team
