Updated Mac OS X, Windows and openSUSE packages for 0.46

The official binary QMC2 packages for Mac OS X, Windows and openSUSE have been updated to v0.46!

Package links are in the download section:

QMC2 0.46 released

Quite surprisingly, MAME/MESS 0.156 were released earlier today, so we’re somewhat forced to release QMC2 0.46 as well today. They apparently decided to do monthly releases from now on, and we can honestly not guarantee the same pace for QMC2 releases in the future. But anyway, this time at least we’re able to offer a nice update which contains a number of drastic performance improvements in several areas :-P .

See the change-log below for details!

The source code is available in the download section now. Expect updated binary packages within the next few days.

Have fun,

The QMC2 dev-team

Updated Windows and openSUSE packages for 0.45

QMC2 0.45 released

MAME/MESS 0.155 were released earlier today, so it’s just about time for QMC2 0.45 :)!

Besides being synced with v0.155 of the great MAME/MESS emulators, QMC2 0.45 comes with a number of nice ROMAlyzer updates & new features (see previous post), and as always contains a fair amount of bug-fixes and general updates. QMC2 now supports SDL2’s joystick API, and separate emulator configuration templates for SDL2 builds of SDLMAME/SDLMESS have been added (note you have to explicitly select those templates when you switch to SDL2 for the emulator!).

See the change-log below for more details!

The source code is available in the download section now. Expect updated binary packages within the next few hours and days.

Have fun,

Upcoming new ROMAlyzer features

Wanted to let all of you know about new ROMAlyzer features that were added in SVN recently:

  • Check-sum database
    • Used to store & retrieve pointers to files in your local file-system(s) and the SHA-1 / CRC-32 check-sums of the data they carry.
  • ROM Collection Rebuilder
    • Reproduces complete ROM collections from scratch in the background from the data stored in the check-sum database.

You can grab (intermediate) Win32 builds including these features (and more updates/fixes) from our forum. The openSUSE SVN builds are also up to date. Please consider giving us feedback since this is fairly new and could probably require some further improvement, although we’re pretty confident it’s ready for prime time now… or if you like it the way it works, you should tell us as well :) .
