cool The mess v0.138 is a amazing great job for the computers history !!!

I sugest a MESS PLUS+ edition with video preview support and manual (pdf) support ( like mame32 Plus v0.138 ) , but i cant do that alone cos im realy newbie in c++ programing blush

I have a manuals collection but i cant preview it like mame 138 plus but my pcb/cab/flyers/scr colection works great !!!
I cant find a history.dat ( i try to make one but i cant preview it on history tab )

thank you !!!

Doesn't MAME Plus already run at least some MESS drivers, also?

There's the problem. MESS, being a hobby project, tends to only have features worked on that the developers themselves would like to work on. It serves it well for system coverage, but for the more "user-friendly" features, it doesn't work that well.

If you have a collection of PDF manual files I would like to look at those to see if they can be added to the Mac OS X gui I maintain. Can you post a link here? Or would you prefer to email me a link? If so I can send you me email address in a PM. The Mac version I maintain is usually several releases behind. This is because I do extensive manual testing, and back port fixes to the code. I am working on a windows code base also now, based on SVN 8240. If I can figure out how to add viewing PDFs to that I will post the code patch here and include that feature in the windows package also.

which driver is supposed to be appleIIsc? wink

anyway, to change floppies in general, if you use old UI (the MAME style interface) you first press ScrlLock to enable menu input, then you press TAB and select File Manager

in this menu, you simply have to choose the floppy drive and you will be able to browse the directories of your computer to mount the second disk, and then the 3rd and so on...

whistle Just Desserts dont disappointed soo easy cos the mame32 plus is a hobby project too and open code

f.e the code behind the RIGHT CLICK > VIEW MANUAL on mameXT32+ is :

+ case ID_VIEW_MANUAL:
+ {
+ LPTSTR tName;
+ LPCTSTR msg = 0;
+
+ const char *base_dir = NULL;
+ char filename[MAX_PATH];
+
+ char app[50];
+ sprintf(app, "apps\\xchange\\xchange.exe");
+
+ int nGame;
+ nGame = Picker_GetSelectedItem(hwndList);
+
+ base_dir = GetManualDir();
+ sprintf(filename, "%s\\arcade\\%s.pdf", base_dir, drivers[nGame]->name);
+
+ if (FileExists(filename))
+ {
+ if (FileExists(app))
+ {
+ sprintf(filename, "\"%s\\arcade\\%s.pdf\"", base_dir, drivers[nGame]->name);
+ LaunchApplication(hMain, app, filename);
+ } else {
+ DisplayTextFile(hMain, filename);
+ }
+ return TRUE;
+ }
+
+ msg = TEXT("The specified file was not found.");
+
+ tName = tstring_from_utf8(filename);
+ MessageBox(hMain, msg, tName, MB_OK + MB_APPLMODAL + MB_ICONSTOP);
+ }
+ break;
