Take a look at the system notes detail in conjunction with one of the HTML / JS "notes-templates" that come with QMC2... that's probably what you desire.

Also, AFAICT GLSL support is compiled in as per default, on Linux at least.

GLSL is enabled in all builds; you must use -video opengl and -glsl to enable them in addition to pointing to the shader files.

i'm sorry if it is a stupid question, or was answered before, but:

is it possible for QMC2 (Windows build) to store its settings inside local QMC2 folder instead of Users\***\.qmc2?

Exactly, oddi. However, when the <config_path> contains white-space you have to enclose it in quotation marks.

Also, see here for details on the available command line arguments.

interesting observation:

i put QMC2 settings in config folder inside QMC2 folder.

if i start QMC2 with this command (without full path):

qmc2-mame.exe -config_path config

everything works fine, but it also creates extra empty config folder in C: root.

if i start QMC2 with this command (full path):

qmc2-mame.exe -config_path D:\emulation\ExtraStuff\Frontends\QMC2MAME\config

everything works fine, no extra folders are created.

so, i stick with second option (full path). wink

If you want to use the first option (relative <config_path>), you have to make sure that the current working directory is D:\emulation\ExtraStuff\Frontends\QMC2MAME when you launch the front-end. So an absolute path is preferable here, yes.

well, this folder is defined as start folder in QMC2 shortcut:

Click to reveal...

but it still creates empty config folder in C:\.

anyway, that doesn't matter much, because i use second option. wink

Hmmm, looks like it handles it as an absolute path then... not sure at the moment. Will check and try to honor relative paths as well... but not today - it's too warm here smile.
