 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:
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.

- "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)

- 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"

- 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

 Emu Loader v8.5.1 (mise à jour) 
Vendredi 30/03/18 à 12:57 par Firebrand
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.

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

- 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 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.

- 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 "" 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
- Create ZiNc games list was setting bios ROMs as "parent ROM" on games sets

- File "\arcade\image_categories.ini" renamed to "\arcade\sysimagefolders_arcade.ini" (done at startup)
- Image category background color/visibility settings moved out of "EmuLoader.ini" into a new "\ini_files\image_category.ini" file (done at startup)
*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
*settings are no longer lost on a frontend crash or clean install
- Changes and fixes to "Game Details" screen
*CHD files of software list games were not correctly detected, "software name" parameter was missing
*added "extra required set" info for software list games
*bios set filename not shown in "Game Files" section (left panel)
*several tweaks
- Tweaks to "Create MAME Games List"
- Changes/fixes to "MAME Software List Games"
*detection of "sharedfeat requirement" tags in .xml files when creating games lists; highly experimental!
.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
*new "xmlfile_crc32" entry in "frontenddir\arcade\mame_softwarelist_games\softname.el" to compare with MAME "softname.xml" (for "update" mode only)
- Interface changes to Select Arcade System" dialog
*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 "Device" drop-down list to "Device ROMs" since this filter is not exclusive to device sets
*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
*renamed "Games with no ROMs" to "Games With no ROMs/CHDs" in "Game ROMs" drop-down list to reflect what the filter actually does
*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

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

- 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
*new comm setting: "Syncronize Frames" in "Input" tab

 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.

 Emu Loader v8.4.7 (mise à jour) 
Vendredi 23/02/18 à 12:54 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
More goodies!
This build brings a new audit system with 99.99% accuracy. Why not 100%, you ask ? Because I don't have a complete MAME set, but from my extensive tests, all ROMs were validated without a single error.
MAME and Demul sets with CRC32 collisions are properly detected and validated. Sets segadimm and segasp no longer tag missing ROMs as available. Emu Loader will try to unzip these ROMs into a memory stream and generate a SHA-1 checksum. For now, only device and bios ROMs are scanned.
There is one limitation for sets with CRC32 collisions. Device ROMs must be in their device sets and bios ROMs must be in their bios sets. Why ? The entire set must be unzipped to generate SHA-1 checksums. Having these ROMs in game sets would require to unzip game sets as well.... oh, the madness!
Unique device/bios ROMs can still be in game sets though.
Other than a rewritten audit system, other bugs were fixed and there was a lot of old code cleaning. Frontend documentation files were updated and some functions were optimized.
I know this is something most people don't like to do, but you need to create games lists again so these changes can be applied.
No need for a clean install though. Systems that required a new games list: MAME, HBMAME, Demul, SEGA Model 2, ZiNc.

- Proper detection of "Board ROMs" on game sets that use "model2" ROMs; "SEGA Model 2" system
*you must re-create games list fix this
*this is a cosmetic fix, ROMs validation is not affected
Fixes and tweaks to Game Details screen
*missing parent setname text not showing in left panel if parent zip file is not found
*SHA-1 checksum generated for zipped EmuCon console/computer games (32 MegaBytes max file size)
*bios/device icon indexes were switched in left column
*"Bios CHD" file was tagged as "Device CHD"; cosmetic fix

- "Create MAME/HBMAME/Demul Games List" updates
*improved detection of sets with CRC32 collisions, a new file created "arcade\games\systemname_crc32collision.txt"
*added a "devicename" tag for each device ROM entry for proper SHA-1 validation (MAME)
*added "feature patelle" tag detection in -listxml output to fix missing "color status" (MAME v0.194 and newer)
*optimizations and code cleanup
- MAME and arcade games files validation system changes and fixes (games audit)
*device sets not scanned correctly when auditing a single game (MAME) *device ROMs are now properly validated and game sets are no longer tagged as "available" if a device ROM is missing (MAME)
*device and bios zip file list contents (CRC32/SHA-1) are now loaded into RAM only once when validating multiple games, for faster access
*CRC32 collision detection and SHA-1 validation for device/bios ROMs; game ROMs are not yet supported (MAME and Demul)
*game files are unzipped directly into a "TMemoryStream" var (RAM), so SHA-1 checksums can be generated
*several optimizations and code cleanup

- Old commented code cleanup

 RetroArch v1.7.1 
Mercredi 21/02/18 à 14:06 par Firebrand
Cet ensemble de noyaux d'émulateurs réunis sous un même frontend a été mis à jour. Les améliorations générales sont les suivantes (pour une version plus longuement développée, veuillez consulter le site officiel):
- 3DS: Now correctly reports amount of CPU cores.
- 3DS: Frontend rating is now correctly implemented for both New 3DS/2DS and Old 3DS/2DS.
- 3DS: Initial networking support, HTTP requests won’t work yet.
- 3DS: Now reports memory and battery state.
- AUDIO: Added ‘Audio Resampler Quality’ setting to Audio Settings. Setting this higher will increase sound quality at the expense of sound latency and/or performance. Setting this value lower will improve sound latency/performance at the expense of sound quality. Only has an effect if the Sinc resampler is used, and you have to restart the game for changes to take effect.
- CHEEVOS: Fix unofficial achievements not being loaded.
- CHEEVOS: Show savestate menu entries when no achievements are found even if hardcore mode is enabled.
- CHEEVOS: Support Neo Geo Pocket.
- COMMON: Bugfix for issue related to ‘Windows mouse pointer visible when running MESS or MAME cores’.
- COMMON: Fix bug ‘Last item in a Playlist is ignored’.
- COMMON: New LED API. Driver implemented for Raspberry Pi, proof of concept implemented for core MAME 2003.
- COMMON: Add quick menu option to watch shader files for changes and recompile them automatically (Linux only for now).
- D3D8: Direct3D 8 can now work on systems that have Direct3D 8 installed.
- D3D9: Add menu support for MaterialUI/XMB.
- D3D10: Initial video driver implementation.
- D3D11: Initial video driver implementation.
- D3D11: SPIRV-Cross/slang shader support for D3D11.
- D3D12: Initial video driver implementation.
- DINPUT: don’t reinitialize input driver on network events / media insertion / network drive connection
- INPUT: show friendly names when available under input binds and system information
- INPUT: show the config name when available under system information
- GUI: Allow changing menu font color.
- GUI: Menu visibility options for RGUI and MaterialUI.
- GUI/MaterialUI: Works now with D3D8, D3D9 Cg, D3D11 and D3D12 drivers.
- GUI/XMB: Add Monochrome Inverted icon theme.
- GUI/XMB: Allow changing menu scale to 200%.
- GUI/XMB: Works now with D3D8, D3D9 Cg, D3D11 and D3D12 drivers. Menu shader effects currently don’t work on D3D8/D3D9 Cg.
- HAIKU: Restored port.
- KEYMAPPER: prevent a condition that caused input_menu_toggle to stop working when a RETRO_DEVICE_KEYBOARD type device is enabled
- GL: ignore hard gpu sync when fast-forwarding
- IOS10/11: Handle hardware keyboards and iCade controllers
- LOCALIZATION: Update Italian translation.
- LOCALIZATION: Update Japanese translation.
- LOCALIZATION: Update Portuguese-Brazilian translation.
- LOCALIZATION: Update Spanish translation.
- NETPLAY: Add menu option to select different MITM (relay) server locations.

- QB: Added –datarootdir.
- QB: Added –bindir and –mandir and deprecated –with-bin_dir and –with-man_dir.
- QB: Added –docdir.
- SHADERS: Allow saving of shader presets based on the parent directory (Saving one for */foo/bar/mario.sfc* would result in *shaders/presets/corename/bar.ext*). We decided it’s safer to still isolate the presets to a single core because different cores may treat video output differently.
- SHADERS: Don’t save the path to the current preset to the main config. This was causing weird behavior, instead it will try to load *currentconfig.ext* and it will save a preset with that name when select *apply shader preset*. The resulting shader will restore properly after restarting and even after core/parent/game specific presets are loaded
- SOLARIS: Initial port.
- SWITCH: Initial Nintendo Switch port, based on libtransistor SDK.
- PS3: Enable Cheevos.
- PSP: Enable threading support through pthreads.

- VULKAN: Fix swapchain recreation bug on Nvidia GPUs with Windows 10 (resolved in Windows Nvidia driver version 390.77).
- WINDOWS: Improved Unicode support (for cores/directory creation and 7zip archives).
- WINDOWS: Show progress meter on taskbar for downloads (Windows 7 and up).
- WINDOWS: WS_EX_LAYERED drastically decreases performance, so only set it when needed (transparency in windowed mode).
- WIIU: Overlay support.
- WIIU: Transparency support in menu + overlays.
- WIIU: Increased stability during core switching.

 Emu Loader v8.4.6 (mise à jour) 
Mardi 13/02/18 à 12:58 par Firebrand
Deux mises à jour successives ont été publiées pour ce frontend multi-systèmes. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
I missed a couple bugs... Oopsie!
Forgot to remove a beep command when caching zipped images list and forgot to reindex the tab's internal indexes in MAME Settings screen.

- A "beep" command was left in zipped images list chaching function
- Forgot to reindex the tab's internal indexes in MAME Settings screen

It's that time of year again. Emu Loader is going thru an agressive metamorphosis process.
MAME's audit system must be rewritten to support CRC32 collision detection and proper device ROMs detection. A bunch of MAME games that require device sets are wrongly set as available when they shouldn't. But later...
This build brings a feature requested many, many, many months ago: tabbed images / game docs. A really nice addition if you want to view game docs maximized in the screenshots panel without disabling Images feature. Access in preferences screen, Game Docs page.
Next, is the removal of Internet Game Info feature from the image categories list (what the hell was I thinking !?). There's a new toggle button in images tool bar for the web viewer, and you can use it with all image layouts.
No more images view mode... what a great day! Single Image Layout inherited all the code from the, now dead, classic view. Previous frontend version was still using the classic view under the hood. From now on, to change between image categories you must be in single image layout. Lots of internal changes were made to make this possible. It's now a lot easier to change between images layouts and categories. Much more intuitive interface. As a result, long time bugs and weird behavior were finally crushed without mercy!
Another change is support for MAME softlist zipped images in a \softwarelist\ sub-folder. eg.: snap_dir\msx1_cart\
Just something extra to separate unzipped images files from zipped images files.
A last minute addition. A new Show Only Sets With CRC32 Collision filter in Arcade Miscellaneous Filters (main tool bar buttons). Enable this option to show only games that have CRC32 collisions. It might seems like a pointless filter since MAME have only two sets, segadimm and segasp, that fall into this category. For me, it will be useful while rewriting Emu Loader's audit system.

- Previous/Next buttons events executing when "Internet Game Info" is enabled (images tool bar)
- Images panel canvas locked before loading "Layout Settings" screen, causing memory leaks and frontend freeze
- Current images layout settings was not saved when exiting the frontend
- Tool bar "Filter By Main CPU" was appearing above the main tool bar buttons (Arcade Miscellaneous Filters)

- "Internet Game Info" tweaks
*images tool bar buttons visibility are no longer changed as they cannot be used with web viewer
*added a "Play Video Preview" button in the web panel's tool bar for easier access
- Changes to "Preview Images" feature
*more tweaks to improve category selection events
*removed remaining "Internet Game Info" code from main menu "Images"
*added "image_category_dir\softlist\" path scan support for MAME software lists
.now you can have your zipped images file in a "\softlist\" sub-folder (eg.: "snap\msx1_cart\")
.file "image_category_dir\" will be searched first (eg.: "snap\")
.not sure if MAME's internal frontend supports this... - tweaks to selected game's image file search function (tiny speed boost)
- Renamed "View Game Documents" to "Show MAME Game Documents" (games popup menu), as this is a MAME exclusive feature
- Tweaks in game documents feature to remove redundant selected game checks
- Minor improvement when switching Images on/off while in thumbnails view; StringList cache for zipped images is reloaded only when setting "Images" enabled (might need further tweaks)

- Deleted several old commented code from source code

- New "Show Only Sets With CRC32 Collision" arcade misc filter (to help future games audit improvements)
*useful filter to know what sets have same CRC32 checksum on different game files
*if the set is a game (parent or clone) but the affected files are from a device or bios set, the game will NOT be tagged as "CRC32 collision"
*so far, only two MAME sets have this: "segadimm" and "segasp"
- New feature: "Game Documents Display Mode"
*wanna show game docs in a full panel without disabling images ? there are two settings:
."Images and Game Docs Single Panel": default frontend behavior and will show game docs together with preview images
."Images and Game Docs Tabbed Panels": use this to show images and game docs in separate panels (like MAME's internal UI)
*to change it, go to Preferences screen (main menu) and select "Game Docs" page
.two new buttons added on images tool bar to switch between panels: "Images" / "Game Documents"
.if images tab is selected, game docs for selected game will not load
.if game docs tab is selected, images for selected game will not load
.settings are saved in "el_extras.ini", "[GameDocuments]" section
.if either images or game docs is disabled, a blank panel will be displayed (behavior may change later)
.if both images and game docs features are disabled, no panel will be displayed

Dimanche 11/02/18 à 14:27 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-système a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
- Mame softlists: other game names functionality: Mame made some mistakes:
*mamenames for games are unique per-machine's device, not unique per machine as they should be (smb2 could be both a flop for the Jap version and a cart for the US version, so what happens when you call mame famicom smb2?)
*mamename loading (without specifying device) does nice things like multi-disc loading. If you do specify device, no nice things
*its hard to tell when you have a name conflice, which device will be treated as the 'default' So, to load the correct game, we look for exceptional game name conflicts between the original softlists for a system. If we find conflicts, only then do we override the mame call by specifying device
- fix some other issues found to get more games working in mame, in particular:
*the custom calls needed for the nes_ and snes_ 'special cartridge' softlists
*forcing up the rating of certain emulators for a system, to make sure games load easier, in particular msx1_flop, where a late Brazilian variant loads double-density disks, and msx2p, where the previous default emus required you to know Japanese to load a game
- make image fit in thumbnail media panel view...
- add back and next buttons for image viewer
- update and tweak the RetroArch efind, many additions and fixes to take up to RetroArch 1.6.9
- stop multiloader using deamon tools to mount zips (turns out it was VERY slow, often in-game, just always unzip)
- refresh mednafen efinds (add mednafen saturn)

 Emu Loader v8.4.4 (mise à jour) 
Mardi 06/02/18 à 14:04 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Captain's log, stardate 95699.36.
I've received reports of erratic behavior in main sections of this program. Further investigation confirmed that Emu Loader was suffering from temporal displacement causing data corruption, specially after running games. Nothing can be done to restore the playtime data of affected games, except resetting them to zero.
End of log.
Take note on the following changes:
- data corruption in Total Playtime info
- splash screen timer frozen when adding MAME software lists into the games list
- driver status set to undefined for Supermode 3 games, making it impossible to filter by driver status
- removed Internet Game Info from image categories, making it a standalone feature
- expanded Export Games List To File feature
- support for MAME v0.194 and tweaks to MAME Settings screen
- Preview Images feature rewrite to remove Images View Mode, plus several tweaks for future improvements

- Function uMain.EncodeUnicodeString() was not converting WideString to UTF-8 correctly
- Timer frozen while loading MAME software list games at startup (splash screen)
- Fixed a bug in my TPanelEx component for proper Windows themed "Tool Bar" paint style
- Some calls to preferences screen were not redirected to "Preferences" main menu event
- Setting "http_root" in "mame.ini" was not implemented (it used to be "http_path")
- Total play time info corruption ("frontend_dir\arcade\played_games\" folder)
*playing a game for 2 minutes was adding 4 hours or so
*MAME softlist games are also affected
*console/computer games were not affected (EmuCon frontend ported systems)
- Driver status not set to "Good" when creating Supermodel games list
*"supermodel_dir\config\games.xml" doesn't have "driver status" entries
*selecting a driver status filter other than "List All", makes Supermodel games not visible
*you must create Supermodel games list again for proper games filtering

- Changes to "Export Games List To File" feature (main menu "Games List")
*exported file was not saved in UTF-8 format
*expanded game info options; "Full Format" only
*you can export the file to a format compatible with Microsoft Excel's "import file" feature, using the new "Microsoft Excel - Format" checkbox; "Full Format" only
*added a new "Use Games List Columns" checkbox to use current columns settings from main games list; "Full Format" only
*added a couple help buttons with usage instructions
*settings are saved in "el_extras.ini" so you won't have to change settings all over again
*removal of dead code
*several tweaks
- Changes and fixes to "Preview Images"
*added a couple variables in "ImageDetails[]" array to keep track of last used image index (max 30 images per category)
*several changes in uMain.LoadScreenshot() function for different image index per image panel
*several changes in "Previous/Next Image" buttons for proper index detection on each image panel (images tool bar)
*removed "Category Prev/Next Auto Switch" and "Layout Prev/Next Auto Switch" settings as they don't work anymore ("Images" main menu). (use "F11" / "F12" and "F9" / "Ctrl+F9" hotkeys to change categories and layouts... or prev/next category/layout buttons in images tool bar)
*uMain.DisplayImage fuction tweaks to prevent memory leaks, leading to frontend crashes
*feature "Image View Mode" is no more, only layouts are available from now on
.classic view was using single image layout, it makes no sense keeping it
.you can change image category only when in single image layout, with category buttons in images tool bar or in "Layout Settings" screen
.fixed some bugs in load/save layout profiles
.single image layout setting is now saved in "ini_files\screenshot_layouts.ini" file
*tweaks, tweaks, tweaks!
- Removed "Internet Game Info" from image categories and made it standalone
*access with a new button in images tool bar
*if this panel is enabled, images and game docs of the selected game will not load
*images tool bar is no longer visible in the internet browser panel; to go back into "images / game docs" just click "Exit Internet Game Info" button
*it requires preview images to be enabled
*renamed file "image_internet.ico" to "internet_gameinfo.ico" in "resources\main_icons\" folder
- Changes and tweaks to "MAME Settings" screen
*renamed "Video 2" tab to "Video 3"
*added a new "Video 2" tab and moved some settings into it ("Video" tab was getting extra cluttered)
."Performace" settings
."Screens" settings
."Monitor Provider" setting
*UI tweaks in "Video 2" tab
."Render Options" panel
."Artwork" panel
."Snapshots / Movies" panel
*new MAME v0.194 settings: "Fallback Artwork" and "Override Artwork" ("Video" tab)

- The following files are no longer needed:

 Stella v5.1 
Lundi 05/02/18 à 11:01 par Firebrand
Une nouvelle version de cet émulateur Atari 2600 a été publiée. Voici la liste des nouveautés:
- Added "Time Machine" mode, which automatically creates save states in user-defined intervals. The user can navigate back and forth within these states inside the emulator and the debugger.
- Huge improvements to the disassembly view in the debugger and disassembly files created:
*reformatting in debugger for better space utilization
*much improved code and data detection
*access tracking and indicators for TIA/IO/RAM adresses in disassembly
*break vector is tracked (if used)
*improved cycle count (page penalties, sums created in disassembly)
*improved handling of instruction masking opcodes (e.g. BIT)
- Fixed change tracking bug during rewind; changes were accumulated instead of being displayed only for the last rewind step.
- Extended 'rewind' to take a second parameter which allows rewinding multiple states.
- Added 'unwind' command, which undoes the latest rewind(s).
- Added '<' (unwind) button to debugger.
- Thumbulator support is not conditional any more.
- Moved various developer related settings in new Developer Settings dialog. These settings now come in two groups (player/developer) and allow switching all settings at once.
- Don't trap write accesses to the datastream pointers in CDF and BUS. This fixes -dev.thumb.trapfatal 1.
- Complete rework of TV mode and ystart autodetection. The new implementation is more robust and reduces startup time.
- Add two "grace lines" of black to the top of the frame when autodetecting ystart.
- Fixed Genesis controller autodetect (Stay Frosty 2, Scramble, etc).
- Fixed a bug in ystart autodetection that could cause screen jumps.
- Fixed several bugs in holdselect, holdreset and holdjoyX commandline arguments; these now work as expected.
- Fixed bug in TIA collision handling; it is now disabled in VBlank.
- Improve TIA PF collision handling during hblank; this fixes a bug in Thrust ROM.
- Fixed wrong display of HM values in debugger after 'HMCLR' has been executed.
- Fixed bug with the debugger 'savedis' command in Windows; it wasn't actually saving the files at all. This has never been reported before, so I guess it shows how many people use that functionality.
- The debugger 'savedis', 'saverom' and 'saveses' now save files in a default, user-visible directory (see the documentation for more information). In the case of 'saveses', the filename is now named based on the date and time of when the command was entered.
- Fixed bug with saving snapshots in 1x mode; there was graphical corruption in some cases. Such snapshots also now include any TV effects / phosphor blending currently in use.
- Fixed regular-sized snapshots when phosphor effect was enabled; sometimes the image was 'double-blended', resulting in a snapshot that was too dark.
- Fixed crash when selecting 'CompuMate' as a controller type for a non- CompuMate ROM; this controller type can no longer be manually selected, and will be used automatically used for CompuMate ROMs.
- Fixed cheat codes, so 7 digits codes are now accepted as described in the doc.
- Fixed swapped ports being displayed wrong in System Logs and debugger.
- Added options to erase the AtariVox/Savekey flash memory, either for all ROMs or only the current one. Also added a message (configurable) when the flash memory is accessed.
- Access to the AtariVox/SaveKey can be signaled with a message.
- Added new interface palette 'Light'.
- Frame stats display made transparent. Also it now displays the real frame rate and if the developer settings group is enabled.
- Improved tab auto-complete in debugger.
- Added conditional traps and savestate creation to debugger.
- Added 'Options...' button to debugger which gives access to the options menu during debugging.
- Added debugger pseudo-register '_cyclesLo' and '_cyclesHi', which give the number of CPU cycles that have occurred since emulation started.
- Added debugger pseudo-register '_fcycles', which gives the number of CPU cycles that have occurred since the frame started.
- Added debugger pseudo-register '_icycles', which gives the number of CPU cycles of the last instruction.
- Extended debugger 'dump' command to take a second argument, indicating the end of the range to dump data.
Improved change tracking; more values are tracked and change tracking now works in case of a break too.
- Added widgets for trackball and SaveKey/AtariVox controllers.
- Improved emulation of 'FE' bankswitch scheme (no user-visible changes, but internally the emulation is much more accurate compared to the real thing). Related to this, improved the debugger support for this scheme (you can now switch banks in the debugger view).
- Added emulation of 7800 initial RAM values and Pause key.
- Added ROM properties for 'Scramble' ROMs, and updated info for all "Champ Games" ROMs.
- Added ROM properties for 'Zippy the Porcupine' ROMs, and updated info for all "Chris Spry (Sprybug)" ROMs.
- Support UNIX style builds (configure / make) on OSX with both XCode / clang and g++.
- Fixed error when building with uClibc-ng for ARM (thanks to Sergio Prado).
- Updated included PNG library to latest stable version.

 Emu Loader v8.4.3 (mise à jour) 
Vendredi 05/01/18 à 13:03 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-système continue son développpement sur un train d'enfer. Voici les nouveautés de cette version:
Ok, this is getting out of hand. Petrificus Totalus!
If you delete/copy/move games files with Emu Loader, you need this build. For the life of me, I can't understand why CopyFile(), MoveFile(), DeleteFile() Windows APIs were malfunctioning. Replaced by their Unicode counterparts. Windows 7 seems to work ok again.
I've made a few more tweaks to the Delete/Copy/Move Games Files feature. Added a new Add System Folder checkbox so you can copy/move games to a \destination folder\system_folder\ without having to manually select a system sub-folder.
Disable this new checkbox to copy/move files directly to the destination folder without adding the extra system sub-folder.

- Oh boy... "Delete/Copy/Move Games Files" was not working at all (games popup menu)
*copy/move operations not working even when game file exists
*replaced action functions by Unicode ones: "CopyFileW()", "MoveFileW()", "DeleteFileW()"; they seem to work OK
*the "\mame_softlist_folder_name\" folder was being added BEFORE "\system_folder_name\" folder... D'OH!

- Changes to "Copy/Move Games Files"
*games list screen is closed after moving files even with operation errors; after moving files you can't move them again anyway
*when copying files, the games list screen stays open in case you want to copy them to another location (handy mode ON)
*forgot to add support for "Video Tape (VHS)" media type in the "copy/move" dialog (MAME CHD files)
*several tweaks
*removal of ancient code

- Feature "Copy/Move Games Files" got a new checkbox setting, enabled by default: "Add System Folder"
*what does it do ? It adds a "\system_name\" sub-folder at the end of the "Destination Path" you selected
*in previous frontend builds this was enfoced, giving you no option to disable it
*system names cannot be customized but are really easy to spot
*for both single and multiple games selection dialogs
*useful when you want to copy/move files of games from the same system and don't want them to be copied/moved to a "system" sub-folder
*when multiple games of different systems are selected, this settings is always enabled, even if you uncheck it ("Crash 'n Burn" mode OFF)
