SourceForge.net attacked

Note that some of the SorceForge.net services are currently offline due to an attack on their site — so if you follow the SVN doc links in the menu on the right for example, you’ll get a ‘connection reset’ because the ViewVC service is also affected. It’s just a minor issue for us, though. The native SVN access is still working fine.

However, I’ve added a new ‘SF.net status’ section on the right for updates to this and any future notifications (an RSS feed from their status page).

Update (February 8, 2011): All relevant services that we use were restored.

Updated templates for (SDL)MESS 0.141

Updated templates for (SDL)MESS 0.141 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.b18 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 /Library/Application Support/qmc2/opt/… on Mac OS X. If you installed QMC2 from a binary package on UNIX, 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.b18 released

Happy new year!

QMC2 0.2.b18 has been released today! The major focus of this version is clean support for Qt 4.7, which you can safely use now (we actually recommend it). Also, some embedder and ROMAlyzer related fixes and improvements made their way into the current code.

The most important changes this time include:

  • Major improvements for the emulator embedder to cleanly work with Qt 4.7 and to fix existing/known bugs with regard to auto-maximization, emulator focus and mixed/concurrent joystick control
  • Support for XML data which contains unicode characters (this actually makes the creation of XML- and gamelist-caches a bit slower)
  • ROMAlyzer fixes (interpret verifications through chdman as file integrity checks only) and improvements (show only checksums that are enabled for calculation)
  • Support for additional/new XML data

The emulator configuration templates are synced with MAME 0.141 and MESS 0.140. If required, updates to the MESS templates for 0.141 will follow as soon as it’s available.

See change-log for more information.

Have fun,

The QMC2 dev-team
