That disables everything else in MAME's presets and I only wanted to remove the phosphorescence decay... =\

Or change the preset ini files if you don't like their default values. I cannot handle every possible combination here... for QMC2, the emulator's default value is the one that's printed when you run "mame -noreadconfig -showconfig".
Yeah, I'll just manually edit the ini files since changing a few numbers is no big deal at all. I just thought that it would be possible to disable it from QMC2 since, well, it does say that entering a value of 0 means no decay.

Thanks in any case.

What I could probably do in the future is to add a "enforce default" switch to every option so you could decide to explicitly pass the default on the command line in such cases. That's better than changing an established concept.

EDIT: Looks like I can do this quite easily... expect it in the next version wink.

We're searching for QMC2 translators and support for existing translations. Interested? See here!

This is working now in SVN r8253.

I have to say that I wasn't able to find the "enforce default" switch... Where is it?

There's no release with it yet, it's in SVN.

The switch is part of the "actions" column of the emulator configuration - global or machine-specific. It's the right-most (toggle-)button with the "shield" symbol:

I could create an intermediate Win32 build (64-bit only) at the weekend, though...

Here's an intermediate build to test:

http://qmc2.batcom-it.net/download/win32/qmc2-win32-x64-0.193-SVN-r8273.exe (or)
http://qmc2.batcom-it.net/download/win32/qmc2-win32-x64-0.193-SVN-r8273.7z

Changes since 0.192 so far:

  • fix: sample- & software-state checks: merge the process output channels (stdio and stderr) because -verifysamples and -verifysoftlist use both channels in the meantime
  • fix: corrected the restoration of the last machine list view during initialization for non-WIP builds
  • fix: manual scanner: corrected the font used for logging (general log-font)
  • imp: improved performance when searching for machines
  • imp: removed the slot-info cache and all related UI hooks as it's no longer required for the upcoming new device configurator
  • imp: updated the emulator configuration templates to MAME 'git latest' (added core state / playback options 'rewind' and 'rewind_capacity', added core miscellaneous option 'nvram_save')
  • imp: updated category.ini to MAME 'git latest'
  • new: emulator options: added an enforce default toggle switch to every option's action items so the user can decide to explicitly pass the default value to the emulator (which QMC2 would usually not do)
  • wip: reimplementing the device configurator for modern MAME - WIP-info: this doesn't work properly yet and it won't load, produce or save any useful slot- & device-setups for you at the moment, the feature isn't WIP-ified though as it's already too geared with rest of the UI!

PS: It turned out that it was good to try on Windows since the VC++ compiler was slightly confused by some of the things I've added lately, but I was able to work around it wink.
