After installing Mame 0.217, all qmc2 software lists are empty "no data available". If I reinstall 0.216, all is well. I've got to wonder if this might be the cause:

• Enhanced -listxml, -listsoftware, -getsoflist and -romident to support software lists enabled by slot card devices. [Vas Crabb]

Perhaps one of the changes confounds qmc2's lexer?

Anyway, before I report this as a qmc2 bug, I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem.

I can confirm that the software lists are gone. Since Rene has been recovering, it may be a while before a fix. Anyone know of a good alternative that uses the official Mame binary?

Thanks for the confirmation, A-Noid.

No, to your question.

Anyway, QMC2 is a open source project.
Couldn't someone create a project fork to make minor updates to at least maintain QMC2 support with the latest versions of MAME while René recovers?

There already was a fork, Belegdol's fixes we recently discussed constitute such a fork. Not sure if it has a Github presence though.

I'd be very interested in any forks of 0.195. That version was quite stable, and nearly bug free, until MAME 0.216 started breaking things.

Just to clarify, there is (unfortunately) no fork of mine. I do have write access to upstream svn and I pushed some experimental minizip changes by accident. The fix was to revert the change done.

I have commit access to mainline qmc2 as well, I just don’t have time to take on maintenance of it alongside MAME.
