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

Changed
- 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

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

 Raine v0.64.15 
Jeudi 29/03/18 à 12:49 par Firebrand
La v0.64.14 devait être la version finale de Raine, mais son auteur a malgré tout décidé de publier une nouvelle version avec un correctif. Seule la version Windows sera présente car il n'a plus la possibilité de produire des versions pour Debian. Voici de quoi il retourne:
- Just because someone noticed the fps setting from the game options dialog was not saved per game and he needed it !
So you need to enable 1st "save per game screen settings" in video options, and then the fps setting will be saved with this new 0.64.15

 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.

 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

- 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

- 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.

- 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).

 Emu Loader v8.3 
Vendredi 24/11/17 à 12:28 par Firebrand
La fusion d'Emu Loader et d'EmuCon prend acte dans cette nouvelle version du frontend. Le généreux changelog qui va suivre vous en dira plus:
- Greetings, fellow earthlings! Avert your eyes from everything else you're doing and read every word of this long news post like you really mean it... :)
- Happy birthday. One year without updates. What changed ? All 65 systems and all features from EmuCon frontend are now in Emu Loader. You don't need two separate frontends anymore. It's my dream come true! Seriously, it took 2 years and a lot of rewriting to make it happen.
- Since EL is not exclusive to arcade emulators, the logo changed to Multiple Systems Frontend.
- Many thanks to Fabian Leonel for helping me these past months with beta tests . Without your help, Emu Loader wouldn't be anywhere near ready for a public release. Windows 10 compatibility has also improved, thanks to Fabian help.
- MAME and arcade emulators/games lists are no longer a requirement to use Emu Loader. You can have a couple computer systems like MSX and Amiga, and nothing else. Like in EmuCon, you can use 4 emulators per system and 2 execution parameters per emulator.
- There aren't many changes on the arcade side, but there are tons of bug fixes and tweaks. Added support for latest MAME, Demul, Supermodel 3 emulators and several files/folders were moved to the \arcade\ folder. Read instructions at the end of this post.
- The minimum Supermodel 3 emulator version required is now SVN 592. You can use older builds but they might not be compatible with EL v8.3. If you haven't updated this emulator, I recommend you do so. Latest Supermodel 3 SVN builds are much better.
- There's a minor fix for ZiNc. The media type of - Added merged tag support for latest Demul v0.7 WIP (November 11, 2017). Clone games show parent game file tags in Game Details screen. You must create Demul games list again to rebuild the ROMs database in the frontend. Not doing so will cause no harm in the way Demul games are handled... again, it's up to you.
- One of the important changes is that favorites profiles have changed. You must update your fav profiles to the new EL v8.3 format before adding new games to it. There's a new Update Favorites Profiles item in main menu you can use. Make sure you update EmuCon fav profiles with EmuCon v2.7.6 or v2.7.7 as well before updating EL fav profiles!
- This process will merge favorite profiles of EmuCon and Emu Loader if files have the same name. There is a detailed tutorial on how to do this update in eldir\docs\How To Use EmuCon Files With Emu Loader.rtf file.
Don't wanna update fav profiles ? No problem. The content of current profiles will not be recognized by the frontend.
- On the console/computer/handheld side, if you have a working EmuCon install, you can copy games lists files and config files directly into Emu Loader. Read the .rtf file mentioned above for instructions. Don't worry, it's easy.
- Games from EmuCon can have the game info split into game title, year, manufacturer, number of players. To do that, use the new Games Editor in main menu Console/Computer. This data doesn't alter games list files. They are saved in eldir\console_computer\games_extra_data\system_name.txt and loaded into the list. If you re-create games list, the extra game info will not be lost.
- You can also assign MAME software lists to console/computer/handheld systems (EmuCon) and use the arcade MAME executable to run EmuCon games. You can modify the assignments when a new MAME comes out using the new Systems Editor in main menu Console/Computer. This way you will be able to select ANY MAME machine compatible to the assigned software list to play EmuCon games... endless possibilities.
- Thumbnails view customizer got a facelift. You can preview the results before applying to the main games list. Resize thumbnail cell's width and height, enable/disable icons and game title.
Games custom fonts was also updated. You can preview all systems at once on screen, if you have a high resolution monitor. Recommended resolution is 1680x1050 or higher. 4K resolution is also supported (3840x2160).
- Video Preview Settings was removed from preferences screen into its own dialog. There's a new cancel button to abort changes in case you make a mistake. Access is in main menu Images or images popup menu.
Make sure to read eldir\docs\How To Use EmuCon Files With Emu Loader.rtf file for insttructions on how to merge the contents of videopreview.ini file from both Emu Loader and EmuCon.
- Dialogs Image Category Settings and Image Layout Settings were split into two dialogs.
*EmuCon feature Last Played Games ported to Emu Loader and expanded. Added support for arcade systems, including MAME software list games. This feature is in preliminary stages and it will be expanded further.
*One cool change is the new mega Machine Types + Systems Filter. I'm particularly proud of this one. All machine types and available systems are listed in this dialog. A great improvement is the addition of a check box on each listed system. If you select the all systems filter, the checked state of individual systems will not be lost! Accessible in the main tool bar buttons, next to view mode button.
The machine type filter and arcade systems filter buttons are no more, replaced by this new mega filter!
*Many dialogs and screens now require a minimum of 1024x768 or 1280x720 resolution. Lower resolutions are still partially supported. Remember that Emu Loader is a Windows application to be used with a high resolution monitor. Low res CRT TV. Arcade cabinets ? This frontend was not built for them...
*Some files and folders must be manually moved before you can use EL v8.3. Arcade stuff are now in the \arcade\ folder. You must do this manually, to avoid this procedure executing EVERY time you load the frontend and waste precious CPU cycles... and a few seconds!
Let's assume the frontend's root folder is eldir\
Move the following files from eldir\ini_files\ to eldir\arcade\
el_mamu_exclude.ini
mame_machines_usercustom.ini
Move the following files from eldir\ini_files\ to eldir\arcade\filters
category.ini
version.ini
catver.ini
mess.ini
nplayers.ini
languages.ini
Move all arcade games list files (*.el; *.elstatus; *.elrom; *.miss; *system_name*.ini) from eldir\arcade\ to eldir\arcade\games\
... or just delete all arcade lists and create arcade games lists from scratch.
There are new arcade XML databases. They are located in eldir\arcade\db_xml\
Make sure to delete the outdated files from eldir\ folder.
DICE_xml.dat
SEGAModel2_xml.dat
SEGAModel2-v1.0_xml.dat
SupermodelSEGAModel3_xml.dat
ZiNc_xml.dat
Move folder eldir\emulator_ini\ to eldir\arcade\emulator_ini\
Move folder eldir\ini_files\memcard_lastused\ to eldir\arcade\memcard_lastused\

Fixed
- ZiNc returning "Error Code 1: Invalid Function"
WARNING: this is not a bugfix! If you get this error, make sure to install the "d3d-ogl12.zip" plugin and the problem WILL go away
- No more "new display type found" annoying messages when creting MAME/HBMAME games lists; warning messages will be displayed one ONCE at the end of the process!
- Selected game always moving position in the screen after running a game or changing preview image category/layout... "Don't get jittery!"
- FATALITY! Emulators executable info and ROMs folders info are deleted if a new emulator build is found at startup (file "eldir\arcade\emulators.ini")
- Path bug when searching unzipped preview images for software list games, resulting in existing images not showing... nobody noticed this ?
- ListView item height changed to 22 pixels when icon size is 16x16; icon/text vertical alignment was not centered
- Hitting ESC key would execute the "Apply" button instead of "Abort" button (Image Category/Layout Settings)
- Custom font for games with preliminary drivers added back (MAME/HBMAME)
- MAME software list games with no ROMs were not tagged as "Game with no ROMs", causing some problems when auditing and running games
- Setting "AutoRun Game With AlterMAME" was not restored at startup; moved setting from "eldir\arcade\emulators.ini" to "EmuLoader.ini" ("Arcade Emulators Setup" screen and games popup menu)
- EL was trying to run MAME software list games with AlterMAME when its build version is lower than 0.162
- EL was trying to run HBMAME games with AlterMAME
- The following settings were never read from mame.ini: "OSD Lightgun Input Provider", "OSD Joystick Input Provider" (MAME Settings screen)
- You could not select items by clicking outsize the text area ("Arcade Games Filter" tool bar button)
- Unicode strings were not decoded correctly for software list games
- Category and VersionAdded are now limited to MAME and HBMAME sets only; MAME software list games also excluded
- Option "Show/Hide All Categories" was not working properly (Image Categories Settings)
- Selecting an image category folder was changing internal vars even if you don't have a system and/or image category selected ("Image Category Settings")
- Frontend crash at startup if in thumbnails view with MAMu_ icons feature enabled
- Thumbnails grid size not properly set at startup, creating a larger thumb image on the last selected game; plus a couple optimizations to improve startup speed
- If system icon is disabled, game icon and favorite icon are painted outside the thumb image bounds, making them invisible (thumbnail view)
- Game snapshots panel is now cleared when switching to internet game info
- Setting "Hide Command Prompt Box" / "Run Game" disabled for all emulators except MAME/HBMAME; emulators do not work correctly if setting enabled (also causes ERROR 1 in ZiNc)
- Editing a field directly in EasyListView conponent was not showing the text if the font color is other than black (TEdit controls background color is always white...)
- Feature "Scan Games With Missing ROMs/CHDs" was not working at all (games popup menu, MAME and arcade emulators)
- Dialog "Select Arcade System" was default to "MAME" instead of "All Systems"
- Neo-Geo games with "neopcb" driver were not included in the "Neo-Geo" filter (MAME arcade only)
- Games popup menu option "Set Custom Options" for "arcade", "console", "computer", "othersys" doesn't show the current selected game in "MAME Settings" screen anymore
- YOU LOSE! Daphne game .zip files were not being searched at all when scanning for games; I guess NOBODY uses Daphne with Emu Loader because I've got ZERO bug reports for the past year!
- If the filename for games list background image doesn't exist, after a manual filename edit (edit box), the current loaded bk image was not cleared (preferences screen)
- Wrong media type for"disk" entries in games files for ZiNc games; they were detected as "Hard Disk Drive" when the correct media is "Disc"
- To fix this you need to re-create ZiNc games list. Not doing so will cause no harm to the way ZiNc games are handled (it's up to you)

Changed
- MAME machines filter panel can have the same background color/image and font settings from main games list
- MAME/arcade emulators and MAME/arcade games lists are no longer required to use the frontend!
- Unavailable systems are now shown with a ghosted icon and gray text (systems selection panels), except for "Emulators Setup" screens
- EasyListView component changes and improvements:
*New "TileCaptionLines" property (ItemPaintInfo) so you can change how many lines the main caption will be shown; normal behaviour is a two lines caption for tiles view; this change is used in the new game custom fonts dialog, to display a single line on the main caption
*cosmetic fix: focus rect is now a solid frame
- Renamed "Delete Selected Games" to "Delete Selected Games Files" to avoid confusion (games popup menu); this option delete your game's ROMs/CHDs/CFGs/Cartridge/Floppy/Cassette...
- Renamed "Copy/Move Selected Games to Folder" to "Copy/Move Selected Games Files to Folder" to avoid confusion (games popup menu)
- Moved MAME softlist games list folder from "eldir\softwarelist\" to "eldir\arcade\mame_softwarelist_games\" since they belong to MAME emulator; EL will try to move this folder at startup
- From now on, setting "Show Favorite Icon in Games" is only for details view mode ("Favorites" tool bar button)
... to enable/disable favorite icon in thumbnails view, go to "Customize Thumbnails" screen ("View" tool bar button or "Thumbnails" sub-menu in games popup menu)
- Unicode WinAPI "CreateProcessW()" is now the default function to run emulator executables; better compatibility with Windows 10; also, the "StartF_UsePosition" flag is always enabled
- Moved arcade games list files from "el_dir\arcade\" to new folder "el_dir\arcade\games\"
WARNING: you must move all files manually before using this build (or delete your current arcade game lists and start over)
- Moved "\ini_files\cpu.ini" file to "\arcade\games\" folder, renamed and split file in two: "mame_maincpu.ini" and "hbmame_maincpu.ini"
WARNING: the frontend will not do this for you, you need to re-create MAME and HBMAME games lists
- Moved "ini_files\games_played.ini" to new folder "\arcade\played_games\", split file for each arcade emulator and renamed to "system_name.txt"
*the frontend will try to move/split/rename "games_played.ini" at startup, no action required from your part
*last played game is always moved/added at the top of the list (like it does in EmuCon frontend)
*arcade files format has changed; added a "title" tag with the game title, a "media" tag with the media type index and a "execparam" tag with MAME softlist execution parameter
*console/computer/handheld (EmuCon) files format has changed; "game" tag replaced by "file" tag
- Moved folder "\emulator_ini\" and all its files/sub-folders to "\arcade\emulator_ini\" new folder (you must move it manually)

*DICE_xml.dat
*SEGAModel2_xml.dat
*SEGAModel2-v1.0_xml.dat
*SupermodelSEGAModel3_xml.dat
*ZiNc_xml.dat
- Frontend logo changed to "Multiple Systems Frontend" since it's not just arcade systems anymore
- Minor hack in TFontDialog component to allow custom colors selection (first color in colors list); it's not perfect but it works
- Support for 3840x2160 resolution (4K) in "Scan Results" screen. ListView font sizes increased to 14 pixels and form width increased extra 500 pixels (squinty mode off)
- Removed the 1000 chars limitation from command line string... uMain.RunProcess() function
- Default MAME machines for softlist games is no more! Bugged feature. eg.: "Atari 400" machine was auto-assigned to "Atari 800" games... DUH!
- From now on, you will be prompt to select a MAME machine just before running a game... if a machine is not already selected
- Changed the scope of a few internal vars from global to local; no need to define them as global and waste RAM
- Updates to favorites profiles
*filename extension changed from .ini to .txt as they are plain text files, either ANSI or UTF-8 format
*merged profiles of same filename from Emu Loader frontend and EmuCon frontend into a single file
*you must use fav profiles from EmuCon v2.7.6 or v2.7.7 (profiles of older EmuCon builds are NOT compatible)
*moved arcade favorites profiles from "\ini_files\favorites\" folder to "eldir\favorites\" (DO NOT MOVE fav profiles manually!!!)
IMPORTANT: profile files must be manually updated by you, using the new "Update Favorites Profiles" in main menu (AFTER updating EmuCon fav profiles, if you have them!)

- Changes to the thumbnails view and the "Customize Thumbnails" dialog
*renamed "Keep Aspect Ratio" to "Maintain Aspect Ratio"
*renamed "Grid Size" to "Cell Size" since you change the size of each cell not the entire grid
*added support to customize width and height of the thumbnail
*cell vertical size is not increased internally by the frontend if game title text setting is enabled... that's your job
*if game title text is enabled, you must increase cell vertical size to accomodate text
*new thumbnail preview panel so you can view changes on-the-fly without appling them to the main games list
*new files "resources\images\thumbnail_preview_hor.png" and "resources\images\thumbnail_preview_vert.png" required
(vertical image is only used/viewed if your screen resolution is 1280x720 or higher!)
*new "Image Size" text above thumb preview panel, for fine-tuning... if you want perfect square images when "Game Title" checkbox is enabled (it won't work if you have custom game fonts of different sizes!)
*game icon size 128x128 is now used if no snapshot is found
*minimum thumbnail cell size changed to 120x120 pixels; 68x68 game icons will be used if cell size is smaller than 144x144 pixels

- Several changes, fixes and optimizations to frontend startup
*the frontend will no longer complain if you have an emulator selected without a games list for it, or have a games list without an emulator selected
*clean install has changed: it only validate frontend games list files (MAME/MAME software list/arcade/console/computer/handheld); emulator executables are only required to create MAME/arcade games lists

*minor optimizations
- Games list font settings changes:
*support console/computer/handheld systems ported from EmuCon
*font settings saved on a new file "ini_files\sysgamecustomfont.ini" instead of "EmuLoader.ini" so you don't lose them on a clean frontend install (you can copy this file from EmuCon before using this Emu Loader build)
*new "All Systems" font setting added so EL can use it as a general systems font (arcade systems font settings are EXCLUDED from this)
*added games list background color/image settings if you want to change those settings while choosing game fonts (settings are still in preferences screen)
*huge UI facelift
*access more settings in the popup menu (mouse right-click)
*support various screen resolutions, including 4K (3840x2160)
- Tiles view mode changes:
*new setting: "Tiles View Cell Size" (view mode tool bar buton); change this option if you're using large game fonts
*details text font is now fixed to "Trebuchet MS", size 9 (size 12 for larger cell sizes)
*details text font color is set automatically by the frontend depending on the games list background color (either black or white font color)... HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL!
- Changes to "Delete/Copy/Move Multiple Selected Games"
*support for console/computer/handheld systems from EmuCon
*bios name set info removed (MAME and arcade systems)
*the "Check Arcade File Types To Delete" box options are limited to MAME, MAME software list games and arcade systems

."Delete Game From Games List"; you can delete a game from the main games list files (like in EmuCon)
."Delete Game Files From Disk"; checking this option will delete the game files (like in EmuCon)
*gamename search bar removed; this was a ridiculously useless thing to have in there...
- Several files in "eldir\resources\main_icons\" renamed and moved to another folder

Removed
- Last selected game per system is gone; if last selected game is no longer visible after a games filters change, the first visible game is selected
- File "resources\images\favicon_thumbnail.png" no longer required
- Machines filter tool bar button is no more (replaced by something a lot better)
- Arcade systems filter tool bar button is no more (replaced by something a lot better)
- The following icon files are no longer required, "\resources\main_icons\" folder: "filterarcade_00_listall.ico"; "filterarcade_00_multi_system.ico"; "filterarcade_01_mame.ico"; "filterarcade_02_supermodelsegamodel3.ico"; "filterarcade_03_daphne.ico"; "filterarcade_04_demul.ico"; "filterarcade_05_hbmame.ico"; "filterarcade_06_dice.ico"; "filterarcade_07_segamodel2.ico"; "filterarcade_08_zinc.ico"

Added

*fix bios titles to match MAME
- New "media type" status bar icon next to the game name / game filename for the main games list (preliminary feature!)
- Support new "Games.xml" file used in Supermodel 3 emulator SVN 592 and newer, so games list can be created from it
*if this file is not found ("supermodel3_dir\Config\Games.xml"), the frontend "outdated" custom file will be used (frontend_dir\arcade\db_xml\SupermodelSEGAModel3_xml.dat)
*support fully merged child sets (clone games); note that partially merged child sets are NOT supported by the "Supermodel 3 Emulator"... you either have all child ROMs in the parent set or all child ROMs in the child set!
- New options for screen view: "Cropped" and "Stretched" (MAME Settings screen)
- Support for MAME v0.183 and newer:
*new "PortAudio" sound output mode ("Sound" tab); also extra settings: API, device, latency
*new "UWP (Windows 10)" OSD Input Provider for keyboard and joystick; only supported in Windows 10
*new "Hybrid DInput/XInput" in "OSD Joystick Input Provider"... hybrid DirectInput/XInput joystick, Windows only
- Support for MAME v0.190 and newer

- Added several Unicode functions in "source\uCommon.pas" for future improvements and better Windows 10 support
- Added detection of the "optional" tag in ROMs/CHDs (MAME/HBMAME), for future frontend improvements
- New console/computer/handheld systems and games lists (major port from EmuCon frontend!!!)
*what ???! MAME calls them "loose software"; games that are not listed in software lists ("mamedir\hash\" folder)
*in most features, handheld systems are included in "console" system
*created two new main menu items to separate system types: "MAME/Arcade" and "Console/Computer"
*new menu items to setup emulators, games folders, images folders (main menu "Console/Computer"):
-> Emulators Setup
- select up to 4 emulators per system
-> Systems Folders Settings
- select games folders for each system and media type (cartridge, floppy disk, cassette tape, disc, hard disk drive)
-> Systems Editor
- assign MAME software lists to EmuCon systems; multiple software lists can be assigned to a single EmuCon system ; (this requires a MAME games list and a MAME/arcade emulator selected)
-> Games Editor
- you can split games data: title, year, manufacturer, number of players (MAME and arcade games are not supported)
-> Create Games List
- I wonder what this does. Humm... I've got it! It makes pudding :)
*new "frontend_dir\console_computer\" sub-folder to store config files, games lists and extra stuff
*column "Category" shows the system name + media type, just like MAME softlist games
*play MAME software list games with custom emulators: BlueMSX, WinVICE, Win-UAE, FS-UAE, Snes9X, ZSNES, Altirra, Atari 800 Emulator, Stella, and many others
*you can use MAME and AlterMAME emulators selected in the arcade front to play console/computer games from EmuCon (some games might not work)
*you can still select MAME/MESS/UME binaries in "console/computer emulators setup" and use them to play games (to maintain EmuCon compatibility)
*you can have two parameters for each emulator; to change between them, go to the new "Use Param" tool bar button
*you can play a EmuCon game using different MAME machines, by using the new "Run Game With MAME" in games popup menu... thanks to the new "Systems Editor"
.this setting is saved in "frontend_dir\console_computer\mame_systems_softwarelist.ini" file
eg.: "msx1_cart", "msx1_flop", "msx1_cass" MAME softlists are assigned to the "MSX" system; you can use any MSX/MSX2/MSX2+/MSX Turbo-R MAME machine to play games not found in MAME software lists
*settings from EmuCon frontend can be easily used in Emu Loader simply by copying some files into Emu Loader's new "\console_computer\" sub-folder
-> EmuCon files/folders to be copied to "el_root_dir\console_computer\" folder:
- sysemulators.ini
- sysgamefolders.ini
- sysimagefolders.ini
- emulator_parameters.ini
- emulator_parameters[default].ini
- ignore_extensions.txt
- "\games\" folder and all its files
- "\game_cfg\" folder and all its files
- "\played_games\" folder and all its files
-> EmuCon favorites profiles must be copied to "el_root_dir\favorites\" new folder
-> NOTE: if you make changes to these files in Emu Loader, you can copy them back into EmuCon install dir and use them there without worries :)
-> NOTE: you must update favorites profiles manually using "Update Favorites Profiles" in main menu; after the update you can delete "frontend_dir\console_computer\favorites\" and "frontend_dir\ini_files\favorites\" folders
- New mega filter dialog for machine types and systems filters
*all systems now have check boxes, make sure to tick them to select the desired systems
*new "All Arcade Systems" and "All Console/Computer/Handheld Systems" options so you can quickly show or hide all available systems
.individual systems checked status are no longer lost if you check "All Systems" options :) :) :) :)
*machine types expanded:
."Arcade Systems": to hide/show all arcade systems (MAME softlist games excluded)
."Console Systems": to hide/show all console systems ported from EmuCon (MAME softlist games excluded)
."Computer Systems": to hide/show all computer systems ported from EmuCon (MAME softlist games excluded)
."Handheld Systems": to hide/show all handheld systems ported from EmuCon (MAME softlist games excluded)
."MAME Machines With Software Lists: to hide/show all MAME machines that have software lists (info from -listxml output)
."MAME Machines Without Software Lists: to hide/show all MAME machines that do not have software lists (AntoPISA's "mess.ini" file required)
."MAME Software List Games: to hide/show all softlist games from MAME (based on "mamedir\hash\*.xml" files
."Enable MAME Machines Filter Panel": filter MAME software list games by MAME machines (left side of main games list)
*check more options in the systems popup menu (mouse right-click)
*settings are saved in EmuLoader.ini when exiting the frontend
- Added a warning message in the "Run Game Confirmation" dialog for ZiNc; ZiNc returns "error 1: incorrect function" if don't have the "d3d-ogl12.zip" plugin installed in ZiNc
- Support AntoPISA's version info and category .ini files for HBMAME emulator
.rename "version.ini" to "version_hb.ini" to avoid replacing MAME's "version.ini" file
.rename "category.ini" to "category_hb.ini" to avoid replacing MAME's "category.ini"
.only then, copy both .ini files to "eldir\arcade\filters\" folder

Mercredi 22/11/17 à 11:08 par Firebrand
Il reste finalement encore un peu de travail sur ce frontend pour Windows avant de basculer complètement vers une fusion avec Emu Loader. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Fixed
- Favorite game tag was not detected in "Last Played Games" (MRU) dialog
- Could not delete games from favorites lists and hidden lists

Changed
- Arcade game entries detection in favorites profiles (from Emu Loader), so they don't get deleted when using "Cleanse" in "Favorites Manager"
