Well fully merged sets are very standard and are perfectly supported by QMC2 except for this edge case.

But yeah, as you're using the MAME internal rom checker to check the roms, it's not really a QMC2 thing.

The more i think about it, the more i am sure that the only workaround would be to use the "Space-efficient" way.

But that means that the other way is no more feasible (there was no problem until this set).

I'm using the latest 0.64 Windows 64-bit build and frequently the tabbed area will resize to half width as shown below:

It usually happens when the monitor goes into power saving. If I simply resize the main window then the tabbed area fixes itself to fill the width of the window.
This is not a new issue as it's been occurring for many releases.

Hmmm, never seen this before... looks like some resize-event or widget updates get stuck in the middle and/or aren't triggered after the graphics are switched on again. I would probably need to catch the power-management events from Windows to "fix" it, but I actually tend to think that the bug is not in QMC2 but Qt.

Is there a way to configure a system to use a pre-configurated "device" selection, for a softwarelist entry which I choose

For example...

My Device tab has this configuration for psx driver:
Device Mappings
Memory Card 1: C:/MemoryCard1.mc
Memory Card 1: C:/MemoryCard2.mc
Slot Options
Port1 - Analog_joystick
Port2 - not used

Then I want to choose a software from the software list, for example: spyro2

Is there a way to run spyro2 directly from the softwarelist selection, but maintaining memory cards and ports choosed in devices tab?

Yes, provided you have defined some device-mappings for the system you can use them together with software-lists by selecting one of them in the drop-down list at the top of the software-list widget.

I am curious if it's possible for QMC2 and even baseline MAME to support custom made XML files as an alternative to using category ini files or Arcade only derivative builds.

Here's a quick and dirty MAME.xml
https://www.sendspace.com/file/h82g51

The idea would be to either import or point QMC2/MAME to this XML file and an entry name MAME appears in the Machine listing (Since example involves MAME.xml) as a method to generate a custom listing.

Obviously I would need to add the appropriate info. at the top of the XML so name and description is known.

No, QMC2 doesn't support custom made XML files... only the ROMAlyzer does.

Hello Rene, maybe u changes something in qmc2 code :

now compiling error again:

Code:
ake: Entering directory '/src/qmc2'
Cleaning up build of QMC2 v0.65
make[1]: Entering directory '/src/qmc2'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target 'g:/Msys64/mingw64/share/qt4/mkspecs/win32-g++/qmake.conf', needed by 'Makefile.qmake'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/src/qmc2'
Makefile:1103: recipe for target 'clean' failed

Makefile:998: recipe for target 'qmc2-bin' failed
make: *** [qmc2-bin] Error 2
make: Leaving directory '/src/qmc2'


p.s use old qt4.8.6 and my msys path is c:\msys64.
Try fix environment with setup-qt.bat but not luck
tnx

It looks like you have to remove Makefile.qmake manually as it refers to a file (g:/Msys64/mingw64/share/qt4/mkspecs/win32-g++/qmake.conf) that no longer exists... likely a left-over from an earlier qmake run.
