 GameEx Evolution v1.01 
Mercredi 19/09/18 à 12:33 par Firebrand
La nouvelle génération de GameEx en gestation depuis déjà longtemps vient de faire ses premières apparitions. Toujours aussi peu bavard, l'auteur ne donne pas vraiment d'information sur les différences avec les versions existantes si ce n'est qu'il l'a refait à partir de zéro, mais avec l'expérience acquise durant les années de développement de GameEx. La version actuelle est encore considérée comme une beta. A tester si vous aimiez les précédentes versions.
Ces dernières ne sont d'ailleurs pas abandonnées car de nouvelles mises à jour ont été publiée, sans qu'on sache ce qui a été modifié.

 Emu Loader v8.6.6 (version complète) 
Samedi 01/09/18 à 12:59 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Time for a new build. Support for MAME .201 and more.
Finally, I found an easy way to support multiple directories scanning per image category without breaking the current code. Mostly for unzipped images but it works for zipped images too. You can have as many folders as you want in MAME/HBMAME image categories.
You can have snap.zip and snap_sl.zip in different folders now. It also applies to softlistname.zip files. Other emulators do not support multiple image paths, only MAME and HBMAME.
The feature Cleanse in Favorites Manager has been updated, per request. This feature removes invalid entries from favorites profiles without telling you what is being removed. Now you can review and remove entries from the soon to be removed list, so you can keep them.
The Ignore Exit Code 1: Invalid Function feature in Preferences screen is now enabled for all console/computer emulators, not just KEGA Fusion.
There are more internal tweaks but it's not visible to the end-user.

Fixed
- Wrong "Panels Colors" settings at startup, "Title Font/Shadow", "Title 2 Font/Shadow", "Text Font/Shadow" ("Night Mode" page, Preferences screen)
- Wrong "Search Games Panel Colors" settings at startup, "Filter Font/Shadow" ("Night Mode" page, Preferences screen)

Changed
- Modified the scope of "Ignore Exit Code 1: Invalid Function" setting to support all console/computer emulators
*"KEGA Fusion" is no longer the only emulator returning exit code of "one" on exit
*this error might be related to a missing and/or incompatible plugin or badly configured emulator
*even when nothing is wrong, the emulator might give you "code 1" as an exit code :(
NOTE: this exit code is caused by the emulators, not the frontend
- Updates to "Cleanse" feature in "Favorites Manager" screen
*a list of all entries to be removed from the favorite profile is shown for review
*you can remove entries from that list so they are not deleted from the profile .ini
*there's no way to show titles, only game names and/or filenames and the system they belong to

Added
- Requested setting "Add Leading Zero to Version Info Column (MAME)" so you can have "0.200" text in the version info column instead of ".200"
- Multiple paths support for MAME preview images
*MAME and HBMAME only
*all image categories are supported: snaps, titles, covers, flyers, etc...
*you can have define as many image directories you want
*MAME softlist .zip files don't have to be in the same place as the arcade .zip files anymore, you can have "snap.zip" in one folder and "snap_sl.zip" in another
- Support for MAME .201
*vgmplay software list is now correctly detected and sets are correctly loaded by the frontend
*new filter to hide vgmplay softlist entries from the games list: "Hide Video Game Music Files" ("Arcade Misc Filter" tool bar button)

 Emu Loader v8.6.5 (version complète) 
Dimanche 05/08/18 à 12:43 par Firebrand
Une nouvelle version de ce frontend multi-systèmes a été publiée. Voici la liste des nouveautés:
More colors customization ahead.
You can change games list selection bar colors now. One set for light mode and another set for the night mode. I even managed to restore the gradient bar by modifying Jim's EasyListView Delphi component. You'll find settings in Preferences screen, Games List page and Night Mode page.
Added a new Slot Machines filter in MAME and Arcade Miscellaneous Filters (tool bar buttons). You need an updated catver.ini to use it. Just head over to AntoPISA's website to download it. There are more than ten thousand games of that category in MAME v0.200.
As usual, more bugs have been fixed and some minor optimizations were made in the source code.

Fixed
- "Machines List Filter" implementation is complete
*if you hide the parent set, all clone will hide as well
*forgot to link the code for checkbox "Show Parent Sets Only" in "Customize Machines List" screen
*window width increases if screen width is 1280 pixels or higher so all columns are visible without showing a horizontal scrollbar
*proper colors in night mode
- Machines list wrong font colors in "MAME Machines Filter Panel"
- Icon alpha blending bug in "Machine Types And Systems Filters" screen when items are unchecked (tool bar button filter)

Changed
- Renamed "MachinesList_SidePanel" section to "MAMEMachinesFilterPanel", for consistency
- Renamed "Game Font Settings" to "Customize Game Fonts" in games popup menu and main menu "Games List"

Removed
- Colors array vars of games selection bar are no more; colors are taken from ColorBoxes in Preferences screen

Added
- Games list selection bar colors customization (Preferences screen)
*customize background color, frame color and font color
*there are two bar settings for MAME and arcade, one for available games (default blue color) and one for games with missing ROMs/CHDs (default red color)
*re-added "Gradient Bar" setting
*two separate sets, one for light mode in "Games List" page and another for the night mode in "Night Mode" page
*light mode settings are saved in "EmuLoader.ini"
*night mode settings are saved in "nightmode.ini"
*affected features so far: main games list, MAME Machines Filter Panel, "Customize Game Fonts" screen, "Customize Thumbnails" screen
NOTE: frame cannot be removed but it can be masked with "alpha blending" and frame colors like black or white
- Night mode custom user colors support in a couple more screens (no more forced blue frames)
- New "Slot Machines" catver.ini filter added to "Arcade Miscellaneous Filters" screen

 Emu Loader v8.6.4 (version complète) 
Jeudi 02/08/18 à 13:06 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
All I can see is bugs... bugs... bugs... thumbnails view was not showing zipped snaps, only unzipped. I didn't notice it until now.
But this build also bring new stuff, like showing MAME software list images from snap_sl.zip, titles_s.zip, covers_sl.zip, others. All image categories are supported. Make sure these files are in the same folder as snap.zip, titles,zip, etc, or the frontend will not find them.
More fixes related to game preview images. If you have mulitple path entries in snaps, titles, cabinets, covers, etc, they were not handled correctly, making it impossible to show images. Emu Loader can now detect the first path entry, ignoring everything else after the ; char. This is for MAME and arcade systems only. Make sure you change image directory entries in MAME's ui.ini file and snap directory entry in mame.ini, and
move the relevant path to the front of the string. If you don't do this, images will not show in the preview panel.
Multiple paths suport is not possible with the current implementation and it will require a complete rewrite on how Emu Loader search for preview images.
So... current titles directory entry in ui.ini: titles_directory "titles;H:\MAME 0.199 EXTRAs"
all you need to do is: titles_directory H:\MAME 0.199 EXTRAs;titles
Easy, right ? Do this for all image categories, including snap_directory entry in mame.ini.
Moving on, I added a feature to the MAME Machines Filter Panel called Machines List Filter. Accessible in the machines list popup menu (mouse right-click), you can hide machines that you don't want to see. It even comes with a customizer (interface is unfinished) that shows a list of all machines so you can easily show/hide them with checkboxes. The list is stored in a new \arcade\mame_machines_exclude.txt file.
This filter is only for the machines filter panel, the main games list does not use it, all machines are listed.

Fixed
- Oh darn... I forgot to delete some beep/ding sound commands when initializing game zipped images lists
- Re-added support to generate zipped snapshot thumbs in thumbnails view
*the code was removed by mistake more than a year ago when EmuCon was merged with Emu Loader, and nobody noticed, not even me
*all arcade systems are supported, "snap.zip" file; MAME also support "softwarename.zip" and "snap_sl.zip"
*Console/computer systems from EmuCon were Ok
- Games list was not focused after a manual switch between light and night mode (main menu)

Changed
- Minor optimizations to save some RAM when handling game image folders and improve game images preview search
- Changes to "Image Category Settings" screen
*button "Default" folder was doing nothing
*category folders are now read directly from config files and not from RAM vars, which might contain different data
*relative paths in console/computer systems (from EmuCon) are now relative to the frontend root path since you can have multiple emulators per system
*minor code tweaks

Added
- New "Machines List Filter" filter for "MAME Machines Filter Panel" (machines list popup menu)
*you can customize what machines appear in the list
*it works like the "Customize MAME Software List" feature
*excluded machines list is saved in "\arcade\mame_machines_exclude.txt" file
*machines are only hidden from the list, not disabled
*it's only for the machines filter panel, not for the main games list
- Support for "all-in-one" zipped image files (MAME software lists only)
*you can have snaps for all MAME softlist games combined into one humongous file instead of separate "softwarename.zip" files
*filename is the same as MAME's image .zip filenames, plus a "_sl" suffix
*filename format: "snap_sl.zip", "titles_sl.zip", "covers_sl.zip", etc (all categories are supported)
*files must be located in the same place as their "arcade/machine" files (snap.zip, titles.zip, etc)
*you can use "softwarename.zip" files together with these new files
*they will be scanned after "softwarename.zip"
*easy to use, just drop files in them proper folders and start the frontend
- Mulitple image paths detection (MAME only)
*only the first path will be used, ignoring everything else after the ; char (snaps, titles, cabinets, covers, etc)
*removal of surrouning quotes, just to be safe (first and last char on the string)
NOTE: there is no multi directories scan to show game preview images!
- Added "\videosnaps_sl\" sub-folder scanning for video preview, MAME software lists

Vendredi 27/07/18 à 12:59 par Firebrand
Ce gestionnaire de ROMs a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
- There was a very edge case bug reported in the zip compression with files right around 4Gb's in size, and it was corrupting these zips. So I have fixed the problem, and released a bug fix update. So Romvault 2.6.3 is released.

Vendredi 20/07/18 à 12:47 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Update 3 is here with some great news, the search games panel is back next to the games filters tool bar were it belongs! I had to resort to voodoo magic to accomplish this miracle...
Panel frames settings expanded. You can choose between 3 modes: disbled, single border, double border. You can even change their colors in night mode. You might need to reconfigure the frame settings again.
Status bar colors settings for the games list, Preferences screen, was split in two sets, one for the light mode (Games List page), and another for the night mode (Night Mode page). There's a Copy button in the night mode set so you can copy status bar colors colors from the light mode.
Several updates were made to the night mode, more options for color customization and even more drawing bugs were fixed. You can change games list frame color and even disable it. Same for images panel frame.
The game documents panel now have a 7 pixels border, just like the images panel. Good for those who use image splitters with the same color as the background color. You can disable the docs panel border in Preferences screen, Game Docs page.
Last but not least, there's a new feature called Tool Bar Overlay Icons Folder (Preferences screen, Games List page). You don't need to overwrite frontend's default overlay icons with your custom icons anymore. All you need is to create a new sub-folder inside \resources\main_icons\overlay\ base folder with the name of your choice and place your custom icons there. Then you can switch between default overlay set and custom sets at will. Feature for both light mode and night mode.
There are some new screenshots in the screenshots page demonstrating the awesome powers of the dark side, err... night mode.
Thanks to Fabian Leonel for making them. They look fantastic. I'll update the rest of the screenshots when I can. You can contribute with frontend screenshots as well. Just make sure they are in PNG format with no compression for maximum picture quality.

Fixed
- Heavy tool bar flickering when resizing main screen / images panel
*caused by the tool bar's "repaint" internal event (not accessible by the user)
*tool bar "DoubleBuffer" property is now always enabled
- Frontend crash when clicking "All Visible" button in "Customize Tool Bar" (games filters tool bar)
- Image category icon in images tool bar was showing the night mode overlay while in light mode
- Frontend crash when detecting "Atari 800" cartridge type from an unzipped game Unicode filename

Changed
- "Search Games" panel is back in the games filters tool bar
*floating panel is still available as an option (access in "Settings" button)
*games list attached panel is gone
*new "Use Small 16x16 Icons" option , access in "Settings" button (default 24x24 icons)
*new "Show Filter Labels in Small Tool Bar" option to show labels, "small tool bar" mode only
*the "Search" tool bar button is visible only for the floating panel
*the floating panel "enabled" state is no longer restored at startup
"Games List Status Bar" colors limited to the light mode (Preferences screen, "Games List" page)
- Setting "Panel Outer Frame Color (7 Pixels)" renamed to "Image 7 Pixels Border Color" to avoid confusion with night mode (Preferences screen, "Games List" page)
- Behavior of panel frames have changed, two options to choose from:
"Outer Frame": enable this to use a single frame
"Inner Frame": enable this to use a double frame; "outer frame" must also be enabled
*disabling both settings or just "outer frame" removes the panel border completely
*tool bars updated to support the new setings
- Message box now show top bar color and labels colors according to game's set status
*green bar for available games
*red bar for available games with missing ROMs/CHDs
*gray bar for missing games

Added
- New "Show Game Documents 7 Pixels Border" checkbox and "Border Color" settings, to align the panel with images panel (Preference screen, "Game Docs" page)
- Night mode improvements ("Night Mode" page in Preferences screen)
*"Search Games" panel colors customization expanded to include the edit box
*customize games list frame color and visibility
*tick the new "Use Windows Themed Border" to disable games custom frame color; it shows a single border
*the frame in games filters tool bar is now drawn outside the client area, and it can be set to disabled, single or double frame
*customize images panel frame colors and visibility
*images tool bar height aligned with games filters "small tool bar", frame is now drawn outside the client area

NOTE 2: background color is it's not widely applied; only for a few panels
- New setting "Tool Bar Overlay Icons Folder" (preferences screen, "Games List" page)
*you don't have to overwrite frontend's overlay icons anymore, just create a sub-folder with your custom icons and select it in the drop-down box
*sub-folder must be inside "frontend_dir\resources\main_icons\overlay\" base folder
*for both light mode and night mode
*use ANSI directory names only, no Unicode support
*you only need to add icons that are different than the ones from the base folder
*if an icon doesn't exist in the sub-folder, the overlay icon from the base folder will be used
