 Raine v0.91.15 
Mardi 30/03/21 à 14:40 par Firebrand
Cet émulateur multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
neocd/neogeo :
- unlikely incompatibility between mslug2 & pbobblen, this fixes both this time.
- there were some problems in neocd with speed hacks, they are now disabled for the kof games and kabukikl
- still on neocd, there was a crash when reading an audio track merged with the main data track, this worked before, but anyway it's fixed.
- old capcom savegames prior to some time in march 2020 couldn't be restored anymore, I added a callback to fix things on the fly, it might not work for all the games, I don't have savegames for all of them, but it should work for most of them.
- the year is updated automatically now
- there was a strange "stack smash" on my laptop when opening the console, it happens only on this computer, which has exactly the same software setup as my main computer, so it's probably a gcc bug, but for now I disabled their stack protection to work around that, even if it's required only for 1 file related to the console, I disabled it everywhere.

cheats :
- the scripts can now handle more than 100 arguments, required for some cheats about the starting level !
- fix pbobble2/2o/2x always on help line cheat
- fix pbobble2 alternate world levels cheat
- fix cheats comments containing ", and handle multi-line comments for cheats, the bottom line of the screen will "flash" if the comment is too long, just click on it to get the full comment. Example of such a cheat : the last one for strider.
- and by the way finally update the default background color to be darker and less transparent, I did it here on my default settings a long time ago but I should have committed it, here it is, handy to be able to read these big comments for the cheats. (if you keep your settings while updating and want to try the default new color, just delete the bg_color line in rainex_sdl.cfg/raine32_sdl.cfg in the config directory).

 Raine v0.91.14 
Lundi 15/03/21 à 14:10 par Firebrand
Une nouvelle version de cet émualteur multi-systèmes a été publiée. Elle corrige quelques bugs:
- one is about the speed of games like pang for the 64 bits version (they were too slow !), it's specific to the z80 emulation using the C version only.
- and the other is quite original, a graphical glitch in some cps2 games like hyper street fighter 2 and some others which was unnoticed for more than 10 years ! You can see pictures along with the discussion there : https://github.com/zelurker/raine/issues/25#issuecomment-799135733

 Emu Loader v8.8.8 (version complète) 
Mercredi 10/03/21 à 15:59 par Firebrand
Ce frontend multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
To triple infinity... and beyond!
I'm starting to use TNT Unicode Components Pack in the frontend. I should have done this a long time ago. Added TntRichEdit control so Unicode texts can be displayed in Game Docs panel and in message boxes. You might need a richedit20.dll file so non-English texts can be properly displayed. I tested the frontend with the file supplied by Windows 10 and the results are awful. You can do the same test on your system, try renaming the DLL and restart the frontend. If English / non-English mixed texts are good, you don't need this DLL.
For this build, and this build alone, such DLL file is supplied with the binary packages. Future releases will have a separate download link. Why ? You might already have a DLL in your system that produces good English / non-English mixed texts (usually when Microsoft Office is installed).
File is from the discontinued Microsoft Word Viewer. I tested 4 different DLL files and they all produce different results. Why, Microsoft... WHY??!!!
I rewrote the parsing function of MAME dat files and now Game Docs feature is now lightning fast!
Other tweaks were made, and history (xml or dat) now shows texts correctly. In fact, history.xml is now the preferred file.
New 4K Mode (2160p). But why ? If you're like me, have a 4K monitor and use screen DPI scale at 100%, everything looks tiny, and so does the frontend.
By enabling this setting, you will get resized dialogs with bigger fonts, bigger buttons and other enlarged stuff. I haven't tested this feature with DPI scale other than 100%...
This is my personal dream come true feature ever since I got a 4K monitor back in 2017. A font sized 16 looks so much better compared to size 9!
Warning: Do not attempt to enable this setting if your screen resolution is lower than 3840x2160, the frontend does not validate Windows resolution.
More tweaks to message boxes, better font colors and texts. Several message boxes were also updated with night mode colors. They can display Unicode texts too (see command line texts). The Run Game Confirmation Dialog in the new 4K mode looks awesome.
I've made some modifications to the TNT Unicode Components Pack so, if you already have it installed in your Delphi compiler, you must install my modified pack or some frontend features will not work, and Delphi will give compilation errors. I couldn't find a way to create new "extra" controls to keep the library with unaltered code.

Fixed
- RichEdit controls had garbage RTF text in some screens
- Natural sorting of "Version Info" column was not working as it should

Changed
- RichEditURL component replaced by the Unicode ready "TntRichEdit" (from "Tnt Delphi Unicode Controls" library)
*show Unicode texts (English and non-English mixed together)... as long as you have a proper richedit20.dll file "richedit20.dll" v5.50.99.2010 file is supplied with the frontend, from the freeware "Microsoft Word Viewer" (if you have Microsoft Office 2010 or newer installed, this file might not be needed)
*MAME game docs can display non-English texts correctly now (mameinfo; history)
*message boxes can display non-English filenames in "command line" texts; mostly for console/computer games (not from MAME softlists)
*component class "TTntCustomRichEdit" modified by me to support "URL click" event, and other minor updates (TntComCtrls.pas)
- Command line texts in "Run Game Confirmation Dialog" now show a "run>" tag prefix
*it's a cosmetic feature and to look cute
*but it also fixes a weird "auto-font" bug from "RichEdit20W" class, depending on the .dll you're using (blaim our dear Microsoft for that!)
- function uCommon.CallShellExecute() updated to support UTF-16 WideString URLs; using ShellExecuteW() WinAPI
- Rewrite/optimization of functions to parse game docs dat files (mameinfo, history)
*game entry detection from "history.xml" is now blazing fast... no more 2 seconds lag when selecting games with "Game Docs" feature enabled
("history.xml" is now the preferred file and should be used instead of "history.dat")
- Text and text color tweaks to "Run Game Configuration Dialog" feature (on/off in main menu)

Removed
- RichEditURL component is no longer needed, removed from the entire project, replaced by TntRichEdit

Added
- Updated Atari800 cartridge mappers list to include new entries; for .rom raw cart files without "cart header" (for Altirra, Atari800 only)
- New setting: "Enable 4K Mode (2160p)"
*Larger fonts, buttons, icons and other controls
*only message boxes are supported for now
*feature intended for monitors with 4K resolution (3840x2160) and screen DPI scale of 100%
*in the future, some screens/dialogs will be so much bigger than current implementation and will only fit in a 4K screen resolution (crazy mode on) (this is my personal "dream come true" feature) :) :)

 Emu Loader v8.8.7 (version complète) 
Samedi 27/02/21 à 14:26 par Firebrand
Une nouvelle version de ce frontend multi-systèmes a été publiée. Voici la liste des nouveautés:
More bug fixes and improvements!
Mouse single click to enable/disable Favorites and MAMu_ icons (tool bar buttons). To call the popup menu, use mouse right-click on the buttons.
Much easier, no ? :)
That annoying white box bug between horizontal/vertical scrollbars in night mode is gone. Turned out it was caused by EasyListView, not by Win10.
Using mulitiple paths for MAMu_ icons (zipped / unzipped) was not working, the frontend could not find the .ico files (MAME only).
The frontend was using RichEdit v1.0 (richedit32.dll), causing problems and crashes with Game Docs feature (mameinfo, history, etc...). I updated Delphi 7's TCustomRichEdit class to v2.0 (richedit20.dll) and made other minor changes.
Still no support for multi-language Unicode text (Delphi 7 limitation).
URL links were not working in history.xml / history.dat. I missed the URL format change made to this file.
And I thought this project was solid, with some "minor" issues left to fix...

Fixed
- Nasty bug causing the frontend to not find .ico files and icon.zip if you have multiple icon folders set in MAME's "ui.ini" file
- White square bug between horizontal and vertical scroll bars (bottom/right) on night mode, when both scroll bars are visible (EasyListView bug)

Changed
- Toggle Favorites ON/OFF with single click (tool bar button)
*easier to enable favorites
*use mouse right-click to call the popup menu with more options; this info shows up in button's hint on mouse hover
*fixed a bug not making button state "pressed" at startup if favorites is enabled
- Toggle MAMu_ icons ON/OFF with single click (tool bar button)
*easier to enable game icons
*use mouse right-click to call the popup menu with more options; this info shows up in button's hint on mouse hover
*fixed a bug not making button state "pressed" at startup if MAMu_ icons is enabled
- Minor color tweaks in night mode:
*game title label colors; lighter green (good games) and lighter red (games with missing ROMs)
*scan mode labels color, from light blue to light gray
- Optimizations in "Show Game Docs" feature
*function to add text in RichEdit rewritten for future expansion
*better handling of Unicode strings (no proper multi-language support yet)
*removal of duplicated code to speed things up
*URL links in history.xml / history.dat were outdated, incorrect and not working
*updated TCustomRichEdit base class to use richedit20.dll (v2 / v3) instead of the old richedit32.dll (v1)
*increased RichEdit's text length limit to 16MB; it was causing crashes for some games

- the main problem this time is in the 64 bits build, all the kabuki games were broken (pang, super pang, block, pengo, and quite a few cps1 games).
- Also fixes chasehq and continental circus graphics. chasehq and night striker gain a region switch too.
- And a last fix (hopefully !) for the sound associations with kof99, a song which never stopped during the intro.

 Emu Loader v8.8.6 (version complète) 
Vendredi 29/01/21 à 15:13 par Firebrand
Une nouvelle version de ce frontend a été publiée. Voici la liste des changements:
Added support for history.xml format (MAME v0.228 and newer). The old history.dat is still supported, even for newer MAME builds. If you create a XML file for an older MAME version, it will work too. :)
You can get it here: https://www.arcade-history.com/index.php?page=download.
Per category "no image found" feature is back. You can have an different .png file for each of the 17 image categories (in-game snaps, titles, cabinets, flyers, etc...)
Files are to be placed in a new resources\images\img_missing\ folder and be in .png format. Since MAMu_, a.k.a. the icons master, already made images for no flyer and no marquee (years ago), they are included with the frontend as an example. You are welcome to create your own images set and share in Emu Loader's forum.
If one or more files are not found, emuloader.png will be used instead (as it was before).
Filenames are as follow:
Title Snapshot: title.png
Game Snapshot.: ingame.png
Marquee.......: marquee.png
Flyer.........: flyer.png
Cabinet.......: cabinet.png
Control Panel.: controlpanel.png
Software Cover: softwarecover.png
PCB...........: pcb.png
Game Artwork..: ingameartwork.png
End...........: end.png
Boss..........: boss.png
Logo..........: logo.png
Score.........: score.png
Versus........: versus.png
Game Over.....: gameover.png
How to Play...: howtoplay.png
Select........: select.png
There are other minor stuff, mainly bug fixes and more tweaking. Night mode's setting Use Windows 10 Dark Scroll Bar in Games List is enabled by default, and it might not be necessary anymore since this Win10 internal API code hack is working quite well (future setting removal ?). That's it for now.

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)

 Raine v0.91.12 
Vendredi 29/01/21 à 15:09 par Firebrand
Cet émulateur multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
- Cabal (cabalbl) is finally fixed, graphics and sound. The kind of game which seems easy to emulate and which is tricky. This one is quite different in raine, we don't have at all the same way to handle the samples (but thanks for finding the crazy bitswap for the sound command !).
- neogeo/neocd saves didn't contain the 68000 bank, it's fixed (problem hard to locate though !).
- a last fix for the sound associations, the one included in the test build earlier.
