Look up its stored value in qmc2.ini (search for bloom_overdrive). Maybe there's a value stored with more than 6 digits, say "1.0000001". Otherwise there's probably a similar bug in the code that checks this.

EDIT: Never mind, I can reproduce this...

Just given it a quick test. All fixed! Command line and that Option are both looking normal.
Good work Rene, much appreciated smile

Yeah, thanks for testing!

There's actually a new bug in this code from above which I'm currently fixing... however, it makes no difference for you.

I found a few more oddities with this type of options, but it should be fixed completely now in r7404: http://qmc2.batcom-it.net/download/temp/qmc2-mame-x64-0.62-SVN-r7404.zip

You should also update the template file (data/opt/MAME/template.xml) for this binary. The new template is included in the ZIP!

It's unlikely I'd notice anything else amiss in the Options, but I'm happy to help test!
Thanks for pointing out the updated template file. I've seen the template file mentioned a lot on this forum but never known what it's purpose is.

I looked around it as thoroughly as I could, but bear in mind I'm unfamiliar with a lot of MAME and QMC2 functionality. I looked at as many different types of Options, settings and controls as I could find, and nothing looked wrong.

The whole exercise was a good way for me to learn a little more about MAME/QMC2. In fact, I ended up with one or two questions, but I'll leave those for another day.

Good work and thanks smile

Hello again, I hope you had a good week. smile
There's something that looks wrong in the expanded detail view in the Machine list. Of course, it might just be me being a clueless user. In case it's a bug, here it is:

Lots of different fields, all of which are totally empty. Should something be displayed in these fields? The same happens across every machine I've tried.
As for my config, same details as before: Win7 x64, using the most recent QMC2 build you supplied last weekend.

You need to display the "Icon / Value" column in order to see the *values* to the attributes displayed here. It just shows the XML attributes the machine has with their possible, fixed and/or default values.

Ahh, thanks for explaining! smile I didn't realise that that column corresponded to those details which is why I hid it in the first place.
Relatedly, is there any way to stop that expanded list of details from displaying when you double click to run a machine? Unfortunately, double clicking to start (which feels more intuitive to me) always leaves behind that expanded details tree after exiting MAME.

The only way to control this QMC2-wise is by disabling "double-click activation" (see "Front end" / "Machine list" in the setup). Then just use the context menu to launch it (right click), press Enter or Ctrl+P, click Play / Play embedded in the tool-bar or whatever smile.
