Release Notes: The most important new feature is the addition of an option to hide the primary game/machine list while it’s (re)loaded, which speeds up processing tremendously (so it’s enabled per default). A few more or less important bugfixes have gone in as well. Overall, it’s mostly a maintenance release. This version is in sync with SDLMAME/MAME/MAMEUIFX 0.134 and SDLMESS/MESS 0.133 (template updates for 0.134 will be posted later when required).
Release Notes: Built-in support for dynamic loading of Qt style sheets, support for PCB images as an additional game/machine detail, a new MAWS quick download feature (supports manual and automatic downloads of images that are usable by QMC2), greatly improved download retry logic and timing, and an enhanced ghost image with rounded corners and a semi-transparent shadow.
Release Notes: A (mini) Web browser was integrated, based on QtWebKit with HTTP proxy support and a simple download manager. A MAWS lookup feature was added as an additional game detail tab. Free reordering and (de)activation of all available game/machine details was added. Qt 4.5.0+ is required now (and Qt 4.5.1 is recommended). The Windows executable (qmc2-emulator.exe) now include the respective application icon to make it look nicer in the Explorer. A general layout face lift was done. The option dialog now uses scrollable content. A few bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: Support for Windows (Win32) and the original MAME and MESS variants. ROMAlyzer: support for CHD v4. Main widget layout improvements to allow for more flexibility. An updated template format to support directories and files. The user may enable/disable double-click activation in the game/machine lists. It shows the sort indicator in game/machine list headers and lets the user change the sort criteria and order. Selectable tab positions for the main widget. Support for additional artwork (cabinets, controllers, marquees and titles). Statistical ROM state information is sent to the front end log
Release Notes: Full device support through the new MESS device configurator for SDLMESS. Mac OS builds are cleanly supported now. New ROM state toggles in the main widget (including new remappable shortcuts). ROMalyzer improvements. Parent image fallback. Display of game/machine descriptions in preview and flier images. A vertical game/machine status indicator. All QMC2 variants are now separately configured within the settings while cloning an existing configuration of the other variant (as far as is meaningful). There are many bugfixes.
Release Notes: The SDLMAME options template has been updated to 0.128u7. The options joy_idx1 - joy_idx8 have been added. The template format has been updated to include the template's emulator name. ROMAlyzer determines ROM file CRC identification issues in ZIP files. Several macro definitions have been changed to be consistent within QMC2's namespace. There are new make options, a new SDLMESS options template (see data/opt/SDLMESS/template.xml, initial version 0.128), experimental support for SDLMESS (very basic and no device support yet), and much more.
Release Notes: Support for MAME's output notifications via a named pipe (SDLMAME 0.127+ required). The emulator control panel has been changed to a multi-column tree widget to display MAME output notifications online. Individual joystick axes can be enabled/disabled at will. There is a built-in audio player to support background music playback, and the Boolean emulator option values true and false are now also translatable.
Release Notes: The joystick test and calibration widgets are now enclosed in scrollable areas to allow for better handling of high amounts of axes and buttons - PS3/Sixasis users will profit most (though there are still some open issues with Sixasis controllers). There are minor speed improvements for loading of XML and gamelist caches by reading data block-wise. The XML cache data has been trimmed, saving memory and disk space. The number of (real/virtual) CPUs is displayed on the system information page. The frontend and emulator log browsers can now be limited to the amount of lines they keep in memory.
Release Notes: Direct GUI control via digital and analog joysticks through SDL. Optional use of OpenGL to draw images. Support for MAME's history.dat and mameinfo.dat information databases. Full screen toggle for the main widget. Style handling has been improved to allow for on-the-fly switching to the system's default GUI style. Improved window flags to better handle individual windows. Architecture-independant OS detection. Several widget restoration bugs have been fixed, as well as a number of other/older bugs.
Release Notes: A Polish translation of the emulator options template has been completed, as well as a French translation. The template reader for emulator options has been improved (using QXmlStreamReader), and template syntax has changed to a new format to allow for easier translation (this format is not compatible with older versions of QMC2). The game's short name (the game ID) is now also included in the gamelist and can be used for sorting.
