 Fin du temps d'attente pour le téléchargement des ROMs 
Lundi 07/05/18 à 09:58 par Dinofly
Lorsque nous avons lancé Planet Emulation, les formules d'hébergements de sites web étaient limitées en termes de traffic autorisé; c'est pourquoi nous avions mis en place une limite au nombre de téléchargements de ROMs par utilisateur, basée sur la taille des fichiers. Aujourd'hui nous estimons que cette limite n'a plus lieu d'être, et nous l'avons donc supprimée.
Vous pouvez donc désormais télécharger sans limite, en espérant que vous resterez raisonnables !
 
 RetroArch v1.7.3 
Samedi 05/05/18 à 13:03 par Firebrand
Cette nouvelle version de RetroArch met surtout en avant une nouvelle interface. Comme toujours, les release notes très explicatives et richement illustrées sont disponibles sur le site officiel. En attendant, voici le résumé des changements:
- AUDIO: Audio mixer supports FLAC/MP3 file types now!
- COMMON: Fixed bug ‘crashing in cores that don’t range check retro_set_controller_type’. Some people were having crashes when device is set to RETRO_DEVICE_NONE and the cores don’t check the number of ports, in VBAM’s case it was overflowing and crashing. QuickNES was crashing too.
- COMMON: Fixed buffer overflow in url encoding (affecting MSVC2010/2013).
- COMMON: (QuickMenu) Added Configuration Override submenu.
- HID: Merge new HID subsystem.
- HID: Fix WaveBird support for the Wii U GCA.
- HID/OSX: Fix regression with IODHIDManager – gamepads which are connected later would not be autoconfigured.
- LOCALIZATION: Update Italian translation.
- LOCALIZATION: Update Japanese translation.
- LOCALIZATION: Update Portuguese translation.
- MENU: New WIMP Qt GUI!
- MENU: Audio mixer now works in the menu without any cores loaded. You have to enable the setting ‘Enable menu audio’ for this to work.
- REMAPPING/OVERLAYS: Fix regression – overlays could no longer be remapped.
- SCANNER: Add Wii Backup File WBFS support.
- X11: CRT SwitchRes support for X11/Linux.

 Emu Loader v8.5.6 (mise à jour) 
Jeudi 03/05/18 à 12:59 par Firebrand
Le chasse aux bugs continue avec cette nouvelle version d'Emu Loader. Voici ceux qui ont été éliminés:
Fix out of focus bug at startup, take 3... action!
This time it's gone for good. Thank you Geoman for helping with beta tests. Another bug resisting the purge was arcade emulator filename being emptied when detecting a new MAME build at startup.
I hope I can get some rest now and actually enjoy using a "most of the time" bug-free frontend.

Fixed
- Holy crap-a-monium! Fix losing arcade emulator filename from "\arcade\emulators.ini" at startup, take three
*the info will be saved in .ini file only if emulator date/time stamp has changed
*whatever happens, current emulator info entries and system sections are no longer deleted from .ini file (garbage entries mode ON)
*only at "Arcade Emulator Setup" screen "emulators.ini" will change (add/delete entries and sections)
M- AMu_ icons folder path saving twice to "mame\ui.ini" after exiting "Preferences" screen
- MAMu_ icons folder path read from MAME and then read again from HBMAME (only MAME's "ui.ini" is used)

Changed
- Reverted back some function calls in main screen's OnShow() event to OnActivate() event like it was in EL v8.4.7 as the newer tweaks were causing weird problems

 Emu Loader v8.5.5 (mise à jour) 
Mercredi 02/05/18 à 13:02 par Firebrand
Une nouvelle vague de correctifs a rapidement été publiée pour ce frontend multi-systèmes. Voici de quoi il s'agit:
If you're annoyed by the dreadful out of focus bug at startup like me, make sure to try this build.
Also, the arcade emulator filename is no longer updated when checking for a new build at startup, only file date/time stamp and version info.

Fixed
- Obscure bug: after updating arcade emulator version info at startup, the filename with full path is somehow deleted from "\arcade\emulators.ini"; filename is no longer updated, just file date/time and version info
- Out of focus bug at startup still haunts us, so the new init zip images form is replaced by a simple panel directly in the main screen

Changed
- The window "Layout Dimensions" will no longer be restored at startup to avoid the dreadul "out of focus" bug (accessible in images popup menu)

 Emu Loader v8.5.4 (mise à jour) 
Mardi 01/05/18 à 13:07 par Firebrand
Une nouvelle version, sous forme de patch, de ce frontend multi-système a été publiée. Voici la liste des nouveautés:
Can you say... quad image layouts ? One more image panel for your viewing pleasure.
Tons of bugs were fixed in the build, lots of them reated to image panels and image layouts. I took the opportunity to separate the zipped images initialization code from images main functions. Also create a darn cute dark themed messages panel that appears just below the images. Showing the splash screen when changing categories/layouts was getting old.
Image category selector and image layout selector popup menu in images tool bar were replaced by improved dialogs. They were way too large and required a resolution of 1920x1080 to show all options. Tweaks were also made to fix bugs present in, now deprecated, popup menus.
Image layout splitters now redraw image panels while dragging them instead of just show a pattern line. This is an experiment and I hope it doesn't cause paiting problems or app crashes.
A new Use Custom Category for Console/Computer setting is available. You can have a set of image categories on the same layout for arcade and another set for MAME software list games, console/computer systems.
You can use cabinet for arcade and cover for MAME software list / console / computer. Everything is saved on the Feature can be enabled/disabled only in Image Layout Settings.
Added support for MAME v0.197 and expanded Neo-Geo MVS multi-slot machines. When running multiple arcade games you can now select between different multi-slot machines.
Select multiple Neo-Geo arcade games, and execute. You can change carts order and now the Neo-Geo machine. There are 6-slot, 4-slot, 2-slot and 1-slot machines to choose from.

Fixed
- Image layout splitters not restored correctly at startup for triple/quad layouts
- Zipped images contents list for MAME software lists not initializing correctly, causing them to not show up in preview images panel
- Image layout splitters not restoring to current positions after exiting "Image Category Settings" and "Image Layout Settings" screens
- Image category was not properly set to in-game snapshot at startup causing several problems:
*image panel settings not initialized correctly
*image hint panel settings not initialized correctly
*arcade emulator game snapshot folder setting was not being read from emulator config file
*zipped images was not initialized
- Fixes to clean install mode
*arcade emulator config file was not read/initialized
*arcade image folder paths were not being read/initialized
*tons of memory leaks caused by two vars that were not freed from RAM

Changed
- Interface tweaks in "Arcade Emulators Setup" screen
*button "Update System" renamed to "Reset System" and its help text changed to reflect what it actually does
*lowered dialog height and merged all buttons in the bottom bar where they belong
*aligned "Ok" and "Cancel" buttons to the right side of the dialog
*"MAME Ash" build label link removed since it's no longer updated, replaced by HomeBrew MAME
*changed font of "Autorun Game With AlterMAME" to the same as other labels and simplified its help text to be more clear
"Delete/Rename Preview Image" screen
*added "Dimensions: 0000x0000" label to show the image's resolution
*replaced category icon by a 68x68 sized monster and removed category title text
*interface tweaks
- Optimized uMain.DestroyImageLayoutControls function and removed fixed indexes of panels/splitters count
- Deleted "destroy controls" code in "uMain.SetImageLayout" function since it's an exact copy from uMain.DestroyImageLayoutControls function
- Replaced "image category selector" and "image layout selector" quick popup menus by improved dialogs in images tool bar buttons
*popup lists were too big for screen resolutions lower than 1080p
*68x68 monster sized icons for easier navigation
*disabled categories/layouts do not appear in the list
*select a category/layout with mouse double-click or ENTER key or "Ok" button
*abort operation with ESC key or "Cancel" button
*reduced RAM usage and code tweaks for future improvements
- Startup tweaks
*double-checked function calls to prevent them executing more than once
*moved some code from uMain.OnActivate() event to uMain.OnShow() event to help mitigate the "out of focus" bug
*fixed a really weird "out of focus" bug that prevents scrolling games with mouse wheel after games list is loaded
*remove a few function calls trying to set focus to the main games list without populating it first
- Replaced zipped images initialization messages in splash screen by a darn cute small msgbox below the images tool bar
*way easier to spot categoy/layout changes
*centered on main screen window in thumbnails view
*message texts no longer sent to splash screen
*action text and visual improvements are now possible
- Image layout splitters now update the image panel while dragging them instead of just show a pattern line (experimental)
- Clean install dialog interface changed to a dark theme (old light theme is gone)

Removed
- 2 TImageList components with 24x24 sized image categories/layouts icons and a TImageList with 68x68 arcade systems icons are no longer necessary as they are loaded on demand, directly from .ico files

Added
- Quad Image Layouts
*18 new image layouts to display 4 game preview images at the same time
*image panels cannot be hidden due to layouts mount complexity
*layout 1 have two modes: horizontal and vertical
.hor: a single horizontal splitter that separates up and down panels
.vert: a single vertical splitter that separates left and right panels
*hide layouts you don't want to use
*"Image Layout Settings" interface updated, 1024x768 / 1280x720 minimum screen resolution required
- New image layout setting "Use Custom Category for Console/Computer" ("Image Layout Settings" screen)
*define alternate image categories for MAME software games / console / computer systems
*dual / triple / quad layouts only; no point in doing this for single layout
*disabled by default, you can enable this setting in "Image Layout Settings" screen only *categories can be assigned to any panel
*unzipped and zipped images support
*image hint box in images preview panel is updated only when hovering the mouse on top of image panels, to maintain games scrolling high speed
*category background color is ignored to avoid heavy flickering while scrolling games
*useful to show "software cover" in place of "arcade flyer"
- Support new "Neo-Geo MVS" machines for MAME v0.197
*you can choose what Neo-Geo MVS machine to use when running multi-slot arcade games
*new file "arcade\mame_multislot_machines.txt" containing the valid list of machines; it can be manually updated when needed
*last used machine is restored next time you run multi-slot games
*when changing the machine to be used, games that exceed slot count are grayed out but can still be moved up/down in the list

Les corrections de bugs continuent avec cette nouvelle version de Emu Loader. Voici de quoi il s'agit:
And the hunt for more bugs continue.
Frontend crash when trying to save emulator default settings from Arcade Emulators Setup screen. Plus, other minor adjustments.

Fixed
- Supermodel3 emulator settings screen was not centered in the desktop
- The "Select" button for "BGFX Shadow Mask" file was not implemented
- Calling "set emulator default settings" from "Arcade Emulators Setup" was not passing the correct emulator filename parameter, resulting in bogus "full_path\emu_cfg_filename.ini" and causing frontend to crash when saving emu default settings

Changed
- Enabled "Save to File" button in madExcept settings (bug report crash dialog)
- Send bug report will no longer zip the .txt; .png files (madExcept)

 Emu Loader v8.5.2 (mise à jour) 
Mardi 03/04/18 à 13:13 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-systèmes continue de se mettre à jour pour éliminer encore plus de bugs. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Booyakasha!
I gave Mikey a call to lend a hand with his nunchucks and squash more bugs that were causing Emu Loader to malfunction.
This build also bring a new feature: colors customization of preview image's hint box. Great if you want to see a dark hint box when hovering the mouse on the image. Settings can be found in Preferences screen, Images tag.
Emu Loader is going thru another major house-cleaning season. There are plenty more commented/unused code to be removed. This is the reason why I've been crossing paths with some jurassic bugs that I didn't know were there.

Fixed
- "Image Category Settings" bug fixes (left-overs from old code)
*"Select" category was disabled and its folder selections was never saved on exit
*zipped images cache wasn't rebuilt on exit while in multiple images layouts, causing selected game images to not load
- Frontend crash if you try to use "Select" image category
- Auditing multiple selected games was not working if any of them use device or bios sets
- Wrong system selected in "single system selection" mode (Arcade system selection dialog)

Changed
- Preview images panel color/splitter settings moved from "EmuLoader.ini" to "\ini_files\image_category.ini"; no more losing image splitter settings on a fresh install
- You can select scan mode and software list build mode when using "Create MAME Software Games List" in main menu "Arcade"

Added
- Customize "preview images hint box" appearance (Preferences screen, "Images" tab)
*the hint box shows up when hovering the mouse on top on images panel
*box background color, box frame color and visibility, text color, text shadow color and visibility
*box opacity level (255 is opaque, 0 is transparent)
*settings saved in "\ini_files\image_category.ini" file to avoid loss on a clean install
*new setting "Show Unzipped/Zipped Icon" that display an "image icon" for unzipped images and "zip icon" for zipped images (easier to spot if the loaded image is unzipped or zipped when hovering the mouse on top of it)
- Moved "Update Favorites Profiles" from main menu to "Help" sub-menu since its usefulness has passed; but if you're late into the frontend party, it's still available

Une mise à jour a été rapidement publiée pour ce frontend multi-système afin de corriger un bug. Voici de quoi il s'agit:
By The Power of Greyskull!
Audit MAME software lists was dead after creating a software games list in update mode, tagging all games as missing.
Other than that, all is well... except the things that aren't.

Fixed
- OH NO! Software lists were not audited after creating games lists in "update" mode

Removed
- Removed a couple "[.zip; .7z]" strings from the splash screen's messages when auditing MAME/HBMAME games since it include CHD files, which are not zipped

 Emu Loader v8.5 (version complète) 
Jeudi 29/03/18 à 13:02 par Firebrand
Une nouvelle version de ce frontend multi-systèmes a été publiée et en version complète cette fois. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Can you guess what this is ?... a new version with lots of goodies.
Several bugs were fixed and lots of dead code removed from source code.
MAME software list support has been expanded and largely improved. There are 2 options when creating software games lists:
- update mode: if you're updating MAME but softwarename.xml files are the same (CRC32 checksum), frontend will not delete current lists or re-create their games lists. There are around 400 software lists in MAME. From now on, this is the frontend's default mode.
- overwrite mode: this mode will delete current lists and recreate all software games lists again. This is how the frontend was working until now
The system selection dialog and the scan mode dialog were updated with the new software list feature. User interface and info texts also updated.
Internal changes to improve game .chd file search routine. Also added \softlist_name\ sub-folder search since MAME supports this.
Software games that only have .chd files and no gamename.zip set were not audited correctly. This was a serious bug!
This is really cool! Support to run games that require and extra set to run. Info saved on a new \arcade\games\mame.elsoftlistreq file. You don't have to manually insert the required media (cart, floppy, etc) to run these games anymore. Highly experimental feature and it might require updates in future builds. Some examples:
Atari 2600 Cassettes require an extra cartridge inserted called Starpath Supercharger.
PC Engine CDs require an extra cartridge inserted called Super CD-Rom System Card (v3.0).
Atari 800 fans, Emu Loader can now read Atari 800 cartridge header (first 4 bytes), looking for the 'C' 'A' 'R' 'T' tag. If found, the cartridge type will no longer be added to the command line. Unzipped and zipped games are supported. See change log for more details.
Plus, code tweaks for consistency and speeds improvements.
Remaining image category/layout settings moved out of EmuLoader.ini into their own settings .ini file (see change log). Now you won't lose image their settings on a frontend crash or a clean install. :)
Be aware that file \arcade\image_categories.ini was renamed to \arcade\sysimagefolders_arcade.ini. Done once at startup, if old file exists.
A new \ini_files\image_category.ini file was created containing image category settings from EmuLoader.ini. Done once at startup.
Arcade Miscellaneous filter dialog interface updates and added a new category filter Music for sets like VGM Player (vgmplay). You need AntoPISA new catver.ini for this filter to work.
Added a new Device Name column in Game Details screen, ROMs/CHDs list panel. Only visible for sets that use 2 or more device sets. This is a nice visual update.
Support for MAME v0.169, including the new comm setting Syncronize Frames entry in mame.ini.
Initial work to support software lists in HBMAME. Most of the work is done for MAME, only a few functions were modified to add HBMAME.
One last change. I re-implemented an old setting, Disable Threaded Preview Image Loading. If you have problems and/or frontend crashes while viewing zipped images, just enable this setting. Emu Loader will no longer load images within threads. Not that much of a speed loss, except when fast-scrolling the games list (hold up or down arrow key).
Oh, and make sure to re-create the games lists for the following systems so the fixes/changes/new features can be applied to the games list:
MAME, HBMAME, MAME Software List (use overwrite mode), ZiNc, Demul.

Fixed
- Bios/device ROMs showing as "Parent Bios" / "Parent Device" in game sets ("Arcade Scan Results" screen)
- Message panel not showing up when applying quick systems filter in grouped view mode
- MAME software list games not audited correctly if set has no main "gamename.zip" file but have CHD files
- Setting "MAMU_ Icons Folder" was not saved in .ini file when closing "Preferences" screen
- TEdit was in read-only mode; you can rename files in "Rename Image" dialog again
- Background color of single image layout was not restored at startup and not set after closing "Image Category Settings" screen

*from now on, file is updated only when you change settings in "Image Category Settings" screen
*settings are no longer lost on a frontend crash or clean install
- Image layout visibility settings moved out of "EmuLoader.ini" into "\ini_files\screenshot_layouts.ini", where they belong (done at startup)
*from now on, file is updated only when you change settings in "Image Layout Settings" screen

*several tweaks
- Tweaks to "Create MAME Games List"
- Changes/fixes to "MAME Software List Games"

.some games require an extra set to run properly; Atari 2600 cassette, PC-Engine CD, others (info shown in "Game Details" screen)
.if a game doesn't run and you're sure you have all game files, look for this extra info above the "Games Files" section, left panel
.requirement data stored in a new "arcade\games\mame.elsoftlistreq" file
.the extra parameter is added before the gamename parameter
*expanded options to create software lists (new "update" mode)
."Disable": do not create software lists and delete current games list files
."Enable: Update": create new lists and update existing ones only if CRC32 checksum of "mamedir\hash\softwarename.xml" file has changed (XML file updated)
."Enable: Overwrite": create new lists and overwrite existing ones even if CRC32 checksum match
NOTE: settings can be found in the screen to select systems when creating MAME games list and in "Scan Games Mode" screen

*added new software list modes
*systems list moved to a left panel
*option "For This Task Only" is unchecked by default
*info texts improved
- Changes to "Arcade Miscellaneous Filters" (main tool bar buttons)

*renamed "BIOS" drop-down list do "BIOS ROMs" since this filter is not exclusive to bios sets
*renamed texts from "Sets" to "ROMs" in "Device ROMs" and "Bios ROMs" drop-down filters since they are related to particular ROMs, not the entire set
*renamed "Filter by Main CPU Filter" to "Enable Main CPU Filter Bar"
*renamed "Games with ROMs (any set)" to "Games With ROMs (any ROM)" in "Game ROMs" drop-down list since this filter includes device/bios ROMs

*new category filter "Music" for sets like "VGM Player" (vgmplay)
*minor interface tweaks
- Renamed several "function" code blocks to "procedure" since they don't need to return a result
- Minor interface tweaks to Preferences screen, and removal of texts with "7 pixel" font size
- If screen resolution is smaller than the dialog, scroll bars will be added to the TForm so you can see everything (experimental!)
*for screen resolutions smaller than 1280x1024 and because some dialogs just can't be scaled down
*supported dialogs: "MAME Settings", "Game Details"
NOTE: minimum screen resolution for Emu Loader is 1024x768 / 1280x720 but some dialogs still fit on 640x480 resolution

Removed
- Masssive source code cleanup (commented/not used code)

Added
- Search .chd files in "\softlist_name\" sub-folder for MAME software lists
- Support to search .chd file in "\parent_gamename\" sub-folder; MAME supports this; "romspath\parent_gamename\clonename_file.chd"
*now you can have clone CHD files in the parent folder
*for MAME arcade, MAME software list, Demul
- New file "arcade\filters\supermodelsegamodel3_control_type.ini"
*a list of control tags and descriptions, extracted from Supermodel3 source code
*for now, it only show controls list in "Game Details" screen; not used anywhere else
- File header detection for "Atari 800" cartridges before running games (highy experimental, used by all Atari800 emulators, except MAME)
*the first 4 bytes of file will be read, looking for 'C' 'A' 'R' 'T'
*if tag is found, Emu Loader will no longer add the cartridge type in the full command line
*any file extension is supported for unzipped game files
*for zipped game files, Emu Loader will unzip it to a TMemoryStream and validate the tag; only ".bin; .car; .rom" file extensions are supported (if there's more than one file inside .zip, the first one found with any of the 3 supported extensions will be used)
- HBMAME Software List support, to be used in the distant future, in a galaxy far, far way... what works:
*create games list
*audit games files
*show softlist games in main games list
*run games
*for everything else, they are handled as MAME softlist games (for now)
- Setting "Restore Internet Game Info at Startup", to restore the last state of internet game info button at startup ("Preferences" screen, "General" tab)
- Setting "Disable Threaded Preview Image Loading" in "Preferences" screen / "Images" page, to prevent images loading delay and "Invalid pointer operation" error
- Support for MAME 0.196

 GameEx et GameEx Arcade Edition v15.21 
Mercredi 28/03/18 à 14:41 par Firebrand
Deux mises à jour ont été publiées consécutivement, mais seules les améliorations de la v15.20 sont listées:
- This release is a significant update to GameEx and GameEx arcade edition but involves work mainly on the back end. There are also too many fixes to mention in this release but the original purpose of it was to upgrade the DirectX library from managed DirectX to SlimDX. In addition all video rendering is now GPU hardware accelerated. This all provides significant stability and performance improvements, especially on older hardware. On newer hardware 4k 60fps video previews are no issue at all.
- There is also a fixed and improved GameLauncher mode and the background snap theme and mode is working as expected again.
- Again, there are many fixes in and minor improvements in this release. You may find some issues you had fixed and because the changes are so substantial I will provide the previous releases in case I missed something in my regression testing.
