QMC2 0.58 released

QMC2 0.58 has been released! It’s in sync with MAME 0.168 which was released earlier today.

This time the most important feature addition is the support for custom artwork (image) classes that you can define locally and use just like any built-in artwork class throughout QMC2 (including QMC2 Arcade, but only the ToxicWaste theme has support for it at the moment). Within this context you’re also able now to select parent fallback behavior individually (per artwork class) so that for example images for high scores wouldn’t be taken from a parent whereas other artwork classes would use the fall back mechanism (this feature is available for all types of custom or built-in artwork, including icons and video snaps).

See change-log below for details!

The source code is now available in the download section. As always, expect updated binary packages within the next few hours and days.

Have fun,

The QMC2 dev-team

QMC2 0.57 released

We’re proud to announce that QMC2 0.57 has been released! It’s in sync with MAME 0.167 which was released earlier today.

Besides the usual bug-fixes you’ll (hopefully) notice that start-up initialization is smoother and slightly faster in this release. The ROMAlyzer’s collection rebuilder received some love and can now make use of a hash cache to avoid many, many database (hash) look-ups during rebuilds. It also has a new dry run mode which doesn’t produce real output but checks what would happen if you’d actually do a rebuild. Among other things, this makes it fairly easy to rapidly produce a fix.dat file.

We’ve moved to a new home :)

Since arcadehits.net is currently not reachable due to DNS issues the QMC2 homepage has been moved to this new place.

I’m extremely grateful for the web-space that was sponsored by Vincent Bousquet over many years, but I need more control over it when it comes to technical issues. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy the new site and its slicker look :)!

Note that older posts may contain old / invalid links. Only recently added posts have been updated with regard to link targets. Also, not all files have been transferred to the new site (intentionally), so if you miss something important please let me know.
