|Ce frontend multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
To Infinity... and Beyond!
Massive changes on this "double infinity" build. Night mode has gone thru a major facelift and it is now the default mode. The entire frontend is updated with a dark theme, except the preferences screen which is mostly used for the light mode. You can created multiple night mode profiles.
There's a new \nightmode\ folder to store all night mode profiles now. To keep your current night mode colors, just copy or move nightmode.ini to the new \nightmode\ folder and rename it to Default.ini.
Several internal fixes and tweaks. Most noticeable, the frontend could not mount images on a virtual drive. Metadata files (.cue and others) are also no longer used to mount images when the "use .cue" tool bar button is enabled.
There was so many drawing bugs and misaligned controls in the previous build that forced me to update my custom Delphi components, fixing some of those weird bugs.
Several settings from EmuLoader.ini were moved to a new LightMode.ini file. Almost all of them are from preferences screen. Unfortunately you'll have to re-configure these settings, there's no other way. This change was necessary to allow future improvements.
Preferences screen have a new layout. The old one had lots of empty space and too many pages.
Night mode can have custom game font settings separete from the light mode (Customize Game Fonts in games popup menu). No need to copy/rename sysgamecustomfont.ini file anymore when switching between night mode and light mode.
Image category background colors for night mode are now split from light mode (Image Category Settings screen). Colors can be different for each mode. If you customized the background colors, go to this thread and follow the tutorial on how to copy current colors into the night mode.
NOTE: You only need to do this if you're using colors different than black (default color).
New setting Use A Single Background Color for image Categories. Select a color in Image Category Settings screen. Aren't you tired of going thru every image category to set the same color ? Now you can select one background color and enable this new feature. All image panels will use it and the best of all, you won't lose the custom background color per category. It's an easy "on/off" checkbox. You can have a single color for night mode and another for light mode, depending on what mode is currently active.
A few frontend configuration files have changed and you cannot use the new ones with previous versions of the frontend. I recommend to make a backup of your current install before upgrading to this build if you plan to rollback to a previous frontend build. No need to backup the entire folder though, just make sure to backup EmuLoader.ini, el_extras.ini, nightmode.ini and the \ini_files\ folder.
- 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)
- 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
- 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)
