Updated templates for (SDL)MESS 0.137

Updated templates for (SDL)MESS 0.137 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.b14 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. If you installed QMC2 from a binary package instead, the templates will most likely be stored in /usr/share/qmc2/opt/…!

On Windows, just replace these files within the sub-directory structure of QMC2’s installation path (or where it has been extracted). The templates are then stored in the relative path dataopt…!

QMC2 0.2.b14 released

Today we proudly announce the release of QMC2 0.2.b14!

This version includes quite a number of interesting improvements, some new features and a set of important bug fixes. Users of older versions will most likely notice the drastically improved startup performance (about 50% of what it took before).

The most important changes since 0.2.b13 include:

  • Nice performance improvements for ROM state filtering and loading of all cached data
  • The ROMAlyzer now has built-in support for chdman which can be used to deeply verify, automatically fix and/or update CHDs
  • New context menus for the main-widget’s horizontal and vertical splitters to allow for orientation flipping and swapping of their sub-widgets/sub-layouts — this enables the user to freely layout all major widgets!
  • X11-only: the embedder now includes a toggle switch to maximize the emulator window
  • MAME targets only: added a demo mode to run random games from the overall list

This version is in sync with SDLMAME/MAME/MAMEUIFX 0.137 and SDLMESS/MESS 0.136 (as always, template updates for (SDL)MESS 0.137 will be posted here later when required).

See the change-log for more information.

Have fun,

The QMC2 dev-team
