Yeah, minor bug. Not the one i thought at first.

Well it can make sense, but as there is both "0s" AND "OFF" settings, we are lead to believe that "0s" means instant play...

I've checked it, and no, it's not a bug. This list is no 1:1 copy of the available categories, the "?" category here is just a (constant) filter setting for sets that aren't categorized - regardless if there actually are some or not.

Yes, sorry, I was wrong... there is 0s for instant play and -1 for off. I wonder why 0s doesn't work for you then? But the user experience with "instant play" is not nice anyway.

What's "lights out in 60 sec" in the darkone theme ?

And what is exactly the "flash effect"/"launch flash" ?

I'm not the author of that theme, so bear with me smile... I'm just trying to keep it alive. AFAIK the "lights out" thing is kind of a "screen saver" (mainly for full screen use), "flash effect" is some flashing effect on start-up, and "launch flash" is a similar effect shown upon launching a machine (or vice versa).

Last issue fixed!

I am probably an edge case as i try to keep a max of config files in the QMC2/data/settings subfolder, but QMC2 needs the path to QMC2.ini file (/Users/foo/...) and not the path to the others config files (.../QMC2/data/setings)

When the latter works for you by "just clicking the exe" then you don't use a custom configuration path! Could you please run "qmc2-arcade.exe -help" on the command line?! This would reveal the default value for that path:

Code:
rene@thunder:~/src/qmc2> qmc2-arcade -help | grep "Configuration path"
-config_path     Configuration path   [/home/rene/.qmc2], ...


EDIT: Yeah, the configuration path is where qmc2.ini resides.

You can do that, but then you have to pass "-config_path e:\Util\QMC2\data\settings" to QMC2, QMC2 Arcade and qchdman on the command line! But first copy qmc2.ini from its current folder to this one wink.

remax: If you have a good working OpenGL driver (and I suppose you do), I'd suggest to use "opengl" for the graphics system. This setting will not be available when I finally switch to Qt 5 (at some point), but it makes a difference for Qt 4.8.x / QtQuick 1.x (desktop OpenGL).

I may have found a real bug this time, you'll tell me :

I want to have a list with only games that have a video snap to play under QMC2-Arcade...

I don't know if there are better way to do it, but i created a fake catver file, with only one section (Video) under which i listed all the driver with a mp4 file (dir /s in the folder and a bit of cut and replace)...

Then i went to the file chooser, clicked only the Video category, clicked the parent only option (no point in having to much drivers in this mode as it make the list barely browsable).

Everything went great except for one little thing : i have System BIOS drivers such as Playchoice-1 BIOS, PGM System BIOS, ... in the middle of my list.

As i understand it, System Bios and Devices category are auto created by QMC2. Devices are auto disabled, but not System Bios, and as both these category are not listed, there is no way to activate/desactivate them in the list.

EDIT 1 : When no category are selected, i have only System Bios in the list... Do i have to categorize them perhaps ?

EDIT 2 : NO doesn't work. I now have a BIOS category in the list (not in QMC2-Mame as it seems my category is overrode by the internal one), but they are selected whether the category is selected or not.

EDIT 3 : Ah! It works if the category is called "System / BIOS" (i called i previously "Bios" so the name have to match the internal one). Then, if i unselect the category, no more Bios. But in my opinion, we should have this category automaticly as it's internally avaible...
