QMC2 - M.A.M.E./M.E.S.S. Catalog / Launcher II is an SDLMAME / MAME / MAMEUIFX and SDLMESS / MESS frontend for Linux / Unix, Mac OS X and Windows.

v0.35, 06-FEB-2012:

  • fix: minor: hide the software-list favorites column ´device configuration´ for MAME targets as it´s a MESS-only feature
  • fix: minor: corrected the main progress-bar´s visual behavior when ROM status checking and software-list caching are running in parallel
  • fix: MAME targets: the software-list widget wasn´t cleared upon reload
  • fix: the last active detail-tab´s header wasn´t always shown initially
  • fix: software-snapshots were positioned incorrectly under certain circumstances
  • fix: corrected a few minor log-scrolling issues
  • fix: individual ROM checks didn´t work correctly when the ROM status was ´not found´ since output is written to stderr in this case and not to stdout as otherwise
  • fix: YouTube video-player: avoid crashes on exit by waiting for all application threads to finish before returning to the OS
  • fix: YouTube video-player: attached videos could get lost when changing the current game/machine very quickly
  • fix: ROMAlyzer: correctly ´remove´ the progress-bar item-widget before deleting it (worked w/o until Qt 4.7.x, crashed since Qt 4.8.0)
  • fix: corrected restoration of main-widget´s layout when the front-end was showing a maximized embedded emulator during clean up on the previous run
  • fix: corrected Windows 64-bit builds with DEBUG=2 (see bug tracker ID #21)
  • fix: file-chooser: the underlying item model now produces correct minimum widths for icon-less columns (size and modification date)
  • fix: embedder on X11: corrected initial input focus after launching a new embedded emulator
  • imp: ROM status exporter: additional output-format choice (´all formats´) to export the ROM states to all three formats at once
  • imp: when a software-list can´t be found (though it´s expected to exist), leave the software-list widget disabled and don´t try to parse the invalid XML (a warning will still be logged since this is actually an emulator bug, but probably also a wanted/known situation as told by etabeta78)
  • imp: MAME/MESS emulator templates updated to 0.145
  • imp: faster display of software-snapshots by using tool-tip like window attributes for the viewer widget (this also fixes bad-window errors on X11)
  • imp: slightly bigger icons in all game/machine list views
  • imp: updated template format to v0.2.5 which adds support for an optional ´part´ attribute that can be used in file-type options to specify the extracted part of the file´s path (currently only "basename" is supported, used by the effect-option)
  • imp: loading of software-lists can be interrupted now and is indicated accordingly for larger lists (i.e. cpc_cass/cpc_flop)
  • imp: Mac OS X build: moved macx/Info.plist.in to arch/Darwin/Info.plist.in where it belongs
  • imp: build: added a ´configure´ make target to create platform dependent project file(s) and stop (i.e. to open it in XCode and build from there on Mac OS X, or to run MinGW make in job-server mode on Windows)
  • imp: MiniWebBrowser: browser-plugins are now enabled per default (see make option BROWSER_PLUGINS)
  • imp: build: removed make option PRETTY as it´s no longer usable in the supported Qt versions
  • imp: Mac OS X build: provide application icons (.icns) to be associated with the apps
  • imp: created new logo images (thanks to JacKc)
  • imp: ROMAlyzer: checksum-wizard: when the user changes the checksum-type and the current checksum is available in the ´other´ type as well, display it in the line-edit (not available when the checksum is edited manually)
  • new: the ROM state filtering mechanism can now be enabled/disabled on-the-fly (the default is ´enabled´, just as before)
  • new: added support for multi-device software-list entries as well as automatic vs. manual mount-device selection (includes the ability to mix parts from different software-list entries)
  • new: added an alternative game/machine search entry box to the tool-bar
  • new: added a CSV and ASCII export tool for software-lists
  • new: added import/export functionality for software-list favorites
  • new: changed the MESS device configurator so it offers available device-instances based on the slot-options specified, thus allowing to mount them as well (through the legacy device-mapper and the file-chooser)
  • new: added ZIP support for software-snapshots
  • new: X11 and Windows only: game/machine icons are now also shown on the tab headers of embedded emulators
  • new: all images have an additional context-menu item (´refresh´) now to clear and reload their cached pendants
  • new: integrated the HTML editor from Qt Labs / graphics-dojo for all kinds of (upcoming) rich-text editing purposes
  • new: added content-zoom to the MiniWebBrowser
  • new: top-level windows can now optionally be minimized upon emulation launch and automatically restored when the (last) emulator instance has ended
  • new: YouTube video-player: added a semi-transparent overlay widget to display status information at the bottom of the player´s viewport
  • new: software-lists: added software-compatibility filtering
  • new: added a ´MESS wiki´ detail to look up available driver information
  • new: added an option to suppress all messages sent through QDebug and related convenience functions
  • new: added an optional startup splash-screen utilizing the new logos
  • new: added support for emulator-embedding on Windows (!) -- note, however, that embedding of emulators running in Direct 3D mode (´-video d3d´) has two known issues: full-screen switching will lead to a crash (of the emulator) and screen-shots aren´t taken correctly from within the GUI (just a black image)
  • new: X11 and Windows only: added an option to select the default launch-mode used when starting emulation by activating (i.e. double-clicking) an entry in any list
  • new: X11 and Windows only: replaced the style-controlled embedder-release icons (usually a red ´X´ which some users wrongly interpreted as ´exit emulator´) with a more suitable / less irritating and style-independent icon by setting explicit style-sheets on the tab-bars of all embedders
  • new: added two options to allow for hiding of BIOS and/or device sets in all master-lists (see Front end -> Game/Machine list in the main setup dialog) -- both will trigger an automatic reload when changed
  • new: added a dock-able/floating software-detail widget with a separate snapshot-browser, a ProjectMESS software-lookup feature, and an HTML editor/viewer for personal rich-text software-notes
  • inf: the new required minimum Qt version is 4.7.0, support for older versions of Qt has been dropped
