QMC2 0.1.b6

November 30th, 2006 by Marv

QMC2 0.1 beta 6, a M.A.M.E. catalog and launcher, has been released. Changes and new features in this release include:

  • fix: widgets disabled during gamelist reload not re-enabled if parser prematurely stopped
  • fix: ROMs with attribute runnable=”no” removed from gamelist (caused incorrect counters)
  • fix: total game count determination didn’t cleanly return in case of an error
  • fix: build: check qmake version for ALL targets
  • fix: ROM check: don’t rely on full lines from sub-process, buffered output might be truncated
  • imp: some code-cleanups
  • imp: removed log entry for loading of preview images
  • new: selectable criteria and order for gamelist sort (case insensitive) – note that Qt 4.2.0+ performs much better due to the new “stable sort” for QTreeWidget (and other item views)
  • new: when emulators are still running when QMC2 is about to exit, the user can decide to kill them or keep them alive
  • new: options Frontend/Gamelist/SortCriteria, …/SortOrder, Frontend/GUI/KillEmulatorsOnExit and MAME/FilesAndDirectories/ROMPath added
  • new: SDLMAME-support, including new options template (use “make SDLMAME=1″ to enable support for SDLMAME, default is XMAME!)
  • new: setup-wizard: checks valid configuration and asks for MAME executable if neccessary
  • new: added ROM state M(ostly correct) for verification result “best available” (indicated by a yellow-green sphere)
