Hello,

could you please consider adding QMC2's version numbers on the .exe files (qmc2-mame/qmc2-arcade)? Some updater programs (like SUMo) rely on them to notify about newer versions. Example report - thanks!

ReiRom ("King ROM") is a Brazilian guy who has a popular football (soccer) blog. He used to use a sort of self-parodying persona "o papa de eumlacion" (the pope of emulation). One of his routines was talking about how he would imminently release EmuAllSystems, an emulator capable of emulating all systems at full speed on a modest host PC. Your name "EmuthemAll" is reminiscent of "EmuAllSystems".

I'm Brazilian and never heard about of this guy / tale...
Are you sure he's Brazilian?
I'm asking because 'The Pope of emulation' in Brazilian Portuguese is translated as 'O papa da emulação'
'o papa de eumlacion' seems more like a corruption of Spanish phrase (maybe he's from another Latin America country?)
Anyway, it seems as a very interesting internet story LOL

I might've misremembered his title, but he's definitely Brazilian. See reference to him e.g. here: https://yoritoshi.wordpress.com/tag/reirom/

Em 1997, época em que a curiosidade dos brasileiros pela emulação começava a crescer, foi criado o canal de irc #emuroms que se tornou o ponto de encontro para brazucas discutirem sobre romhacking, traduções e outras atividades emulisticas.

Foi nesse lugar que surgiu REIROM, o lendário brasileiro dono de todas as roms já criadas (inclusive as roms de Playstation), que queria dominar a #emuroms, ter fama no exterior e criar o emulador supremo: o Emuallsystems.
