In general M+GUI compile stuff is probably best posted about on MAMEWorld in the MAME Plus! forum - Emuman is seen there more than here.

Thanks RBelmont, appreciate the info. I've re-posted over there.

I hope the next version for MacOS X will have the Quit command again - it's quite irritating that I can not quit the program pressing Command + Q or selecting it from the menu...

Command + H doesn't work either.

Over on Mameworld, Emuman said he'll fix it for the next release.

Any news on a new version? I really miss the Command + Q and the Command + H options...

It looks like Emuman is taking a break, he hasn't been on the forums for a while.

Hey, at least M+GUI doesn't crash when you quit, like QMC2 :-)

If you build it yourself with disabled Phonon features it won't crash on exit either smile. It's really a Qt/Phonon bug as of Qt 4.6... haven't tried Qt 4.7 on Mac OS X yet.

Maybe I'll try that, thanks for the tip. Still in the process of getting used to qmc2.

Not the right place to post this but I promise it's a quickie:

qmc2 saves .ini files in the MESS root folder instead of the ini folder, is there anything I can do about that?

Nothing seems to happen when importing MESS64.ini and I can't find anywhere else to set the ini folder path.

I'm running the qmc2 executable from inside the MESS folder.

Hmmm, QMC2 does not manage ini files itself (except for the ini-exporter/importer). You may need to set the "inipath" in the global emulator settings, though!

OK, so you're really talking about the ini-exporter... yes, it uses the inipath setting or "." if it's unset.

Also, you may want to read this FAQ for more information about how QMC2 handles the emulator configuration.

Thanks.

MAME/MESS.ini has two ini paths set by default. The emulator somehow knows that it's supposed to read and write game/systemname.ini in the ini folder, and only read the main .ini in the root folder.

qmc2 doesn't make that distinction and just writes to the first inipath, which is the root folder.
