I updated the templates to use the recent implemented Rank Classification.
Now for each "star" in the classification of the system/machine will be represented in the right side of system ID with a small star as in example below.

A big change in the way which devices are shown.


Also, now the driver source code was been updated, and link to GitHub page of the system smile

I'm preparing big core changes in the templates to adapt for new MAME and QMC2-MAME as the only executable era. laugh
Just waiting to see how external websites (Progetto-EMMA/Progetto-MESS, ArcadesHits, etc) will react to these changes and if they changes the URLs from their images wink

I'm coming here to give a preview of the new version which is coming.

Shideravan System Template - 0.42 beta 1 [May/2015]

Among the improvements are:
*As expected, total compatibility to the new QMC2 version. It now has only one variant with general purpose, so the template will incorporate such characteristics.

*The links on the Bottom Area now include information for all the external websites - even the ones that were limited to specific variants of QMC2.


*New way of showing extra images: now these images will be shown in the black colunm. It was also added "Hi-Score" as an extra image.


*All functions that that were referring to the emulator used ($EMULATOR_TYPE$) or to the variant used ($EMULATOR_VARIANT$) became obsolete and were taken out of the code, and the functions that made use of those had their logic remade.
That may turn possible a substantial speed up as the templates won't need to verify every time what emulator/variant is being used, having an all purpose code now.
I know that for compatibility reasons QMC2 still accept these macros, however they won't have any pratical use in these templates anymore.

*The links that goes to the MAME drives source code, that currently are hosted at GitHub, were modified. It's important to notice that the MiniWebBrowser doesn't have compatibility with Github pages as of now.
However the templates will exibt the correct code for said pages, in case that will work correctly in the future.
->As an effort to work around this problem the links for the codes will be from git.redump.net, temporarily.

*Regarding these links, also, they will indicate "Arcade" for code that used to be stored in "MAME" directories and "Other" for the code which used to be in the "MESS" directories, as "MAME" and "MESS" referencies for these codes doesn't made sense anymore. That will happen until all the code be merged in the same place (which I think that is expected).


*Worth to note also, that the devices link will show only a single link.


*All ways the image is drawn (either local or online) were remade.
->That brought more standardization and mass removal of legacy problems.

*Even the changes cited are predominantly for System Template, expect some updates for Software Template too.

*The license for the templates will be GPLv2 (of course it was already this way, as QMC2 itself use this license. I'm just formalizing also in the templates code).

*As soon as the code is at a satisfactory level and the improvements are stablished I intend to do an campaing to uptade the translations.

As you can see, the main goal is not only ensure that the next templates version would be compatible with the new QMC2/MAME, but also to be the best possible for now on.
I think that is a great opportunity to improve code to be optimized and easy to maintain.
And which that's will be a good moment for some big changes and templates improvements. Also, this means that bug reports will be very welcome smile

Yes, exclusively from websites. QMC2 doesn't have support for these images locally.

SYSTEM TEMPLATE - 01/September/2015
-Experimental support for Video Snaps.



Note: If you're a Windows user, you'll need to download additional DLLs provided by Rene in http://qmc2.arcadehits.net/Win32/qmc2-alt-qtwebkit-x64.zip and unzip into the QMC2 installation folder. Create a backup for QtWebKit4.dll before replace. Also, you'll need a MP4 codec installed.

Also works fine in my Windows 7 x64 VM!

BTW, when there's no video snap for a machine it currently says "No image available", but "No video available" would be better I think.

If you think that's interesting, I could also incorporate video.js... you can also embed the player yourself (click "Embed This Player" for the required HTML) to play with it.

oddi, you cannot use the (experimental) replacement DLLs with MinGW builds! I only made the VC++ 64-bit ones for our tests. So if you want to try this, you have to use the official build (0.55 / x64)!

@Shideravan: You should also consider adding an option to enable/disable the video stuff.

Yes, I'm concerned about that. I'm just using an existing function to give a generic output for now when no video is found. I'm just more focused if the Video Snaps are working well for now. I'll fix in the next update wink

Quote:

Of course. That's just a "test" version I don't implemented everything yet. And I'm still deciding the best placement for these options wink

But this option is certainly necessary in the final version (also maybe other "options" such autoplay, loop, etc). Thats why I'm thinking in an scrollable list for this option. What do you think?

I have no real opinion on this. If you think you can offer more useful options easily, then yes, why not.

Thanks A. Viloria. Changed in SVN.

I also made a Google-supported guess on the French translation for "Not available" as "Indisponible" smile.

Ps.: Please, some translations may need some double-check with context. If you're a fluent/native speaker of one of these languages, please check them and feedback here.
If you find something wrong, then we still can fix it wink.

Thanks again, Shideravan!

I've corrected a few more typos in the software-notes template ("availiable" => "available") before updating them in SVN.

SYSTEM TEMPLATE - 13/October/2015
Changes:
-Since now all MESS drivers finally merged to MAME directory in repositories, then the old "non-arcade" button/link for GitHub and git.redump which used to go to old 'mess' directory has been removed and only one button will show for non-device drivers.
-Updated sources in Github for devices.
-New preview image options: Straight-corners (4:3) and Widescreen (16:9). Also, "Straight-corners" and "Widescreen" already translated for Portuguese (need translations for the other languages).

Straight-corners (4:3):


Widescreen (16:9):

No help required. That's a libpng warning because some PNG image has an "incorrect sRGB profile"...

In case you feel confused or annoyed by these Qt warnings you may consider switching on the "Suppress Qt messages" option in the GUI setup.

Note that I've fixed custom artwork look-up in the version in SVN:

Code:
Index: data/gmn/Shideravan System Template.html
===================================================================
--- data/gmn/Shideravan System Template.html    (revision 7105)
+++ data/gmn/Shideravan System Template.html    (working copy)
@@ -2661,8 +2661,9 @@
    {
       for (var cont=0; cont < customArtworkNames.length; cont++) 
          {
+         var artworkKey = customArtworkNames[cont];
          var artworkName = customArtworkNames[cont].replace("&", "");
-         var imageUrl = qmc2NEO.customSystemArtworkUrl('$ID$', artworkName);
+         var imageUrl = qmc2NEO.customSystemArtworkUrl('$ID$', artworkKey);
          
          document.write("<b>"+artworkName+":</b><br>");
          if (imageUrl != "$GHOST_IMAGE$")

The artwork name (its key) can contain '&' which is used in the main GUI to setup an accelerator key-sequence (Alt+<character-after-&>). It should only be removed for displaying, the look-up needs the full name/key though.

There is also support for zipped/7-zipped custom artwork which is currently not used by your template (see wiki for details).
