QMC2 0.2.b13

January 3rd, 2010 by Marv

A new version of QMC2, a M.A.M.E./M.E.S.S. Catalog / Launcher II, has been released. The most important changes since 0.2.b12 according to the developers are the following items:

  • 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
