I think that it will be a good place to put all of them smile

René, It's possible to get info from MAME/MESS such CPUs and Resolution from the system?

The idea: create these new macros for show that information for the user in the templates, and plus, show system snapshots with proportionally of the same resolution from the real system smile

Yeah, basically everything that's in the XML data (-listxml) could be made available... however, with slot-devices things may look different, so I tend to say it's not very useful (at least wrt screen resolutions).

I seem to have disabled in-game sound.
The MP3 player runs ok, but no game plays with sound. I can't find an option that I've deselected to turn back on, and have tried restoring defaults and selecting paths again, but the sound is still non-existant.

It was working earlier today, and I don't know what's changed. Sound is certainly working in other apps.

Any pointers?

Nevermind, found it. Managed to move the SDL audio driver off 'auto'

Anyway, next question… how do I utilise scanline/crt PNG files as overlays?

thanks!

Could you do a function for don't show [?] when a web image is not found in template notes (or link for the image is broken)?

EDIT: Or better. A function to see when it will show the [?] and we have a way to try to do something different (try to call another image source or show ghost image, or even change all the layout, for example) smile

Is there a way to easily erase the nvram in QMC2?

@remax: simple answer: no smile! But if that seems useful it could be added...

@Shideravan: the ghost image is automatically presented as the fall-back image (path), so I really don't get your point wink. As I said before, use something like this in the template:

Code:
<script>
  if ( "$PREVIEW_IMAGE$" == "$GHOST_IMAGE$" )
    document.write("<img src=\"/alternate/image.png\">");
</script>

@jake74: in the same way as you would with command-line MAME... that is, I'm actually not sure what has to be done to accomplish that, but you'd have to set the exact same options in QMC2.

@QMC2: I'm not talking about Ghost Image, but about broken image itself.
For example, I check if user have a cabinet in default path, if don't it will try to get from ProjectMESS or ArcadeHits.
But I can't say if the system have a image entry in one of the websites.
If don't, QMC2 don't show a ghost image, but a [?] simbol of a broken image.
Maybe I can send the template for you to see the point of problem...

Well, it's not that i use that a lot, but for driver a bit instable (like the PCW16) where a simple mistake leads to having to start from scratch, it may be handful.

... but only if doesn't mean too much work.
