Thanks you _very_ much smile This is THE mame frontend on the mac, and one of my favorites on any platform! It's clean and extremely fast, and allows us mac users to use mame more or less on par with win users.

Here's a few observations/suggestions for further improvements:
- in the game list, there are a few red-colored items (drivers without games?), they should be hideable
- the flyers window can be tiny, how about popping up a bigger window to see the flyer full res when I click on it?
- add some way to identify working/non working games
- add a few more buttons, eg Game Options
- smart lists and custom lists, with custom ini options applicable to members of the list
- play count and statistics
- some basic rom audit functionality
- possibility to choose fields upon which to browse games, ie not only catver data, but also manufacturer, year etc.
- column customization
- two separate "play" buttons, one for playing full screen, the other for playing in a window
- full screen mode for those ppl building a cabinet with a mac mini
- random game function


That's about it wink

i followed the instructions from the readme file and then opened macmameinfox. it started to load information and crashed while loading game information.

i am using macmame currently and downloaded the catver.ini file for macmame and not the usual catver.ini file if that makes a difference.

id love to check your frontend out. it looks and sounds pretty neat. though unfortunately i dont know what i ****ed up or if it is a bug in the code frown

this is the crash log:

I am seeing this also. There is no crash if I rename
mameinfo.dat to mameinfo.dat.hide.

For what it's worth, I only downloaded the .108 version
of mameinfo.dat. It seemed too tedious to apply the
diffs for u1 and u2.

Let me know if I should paste a crash log here. (Edited
to add: I just checked and my crash logs look identical
to the one posted above, at least for the stack trace of
the crashing thread.)

Thanks for the app, it's really nice.

i also skipped applying the diffs for mameinfo.dat

edit: thanks to Psellus i got it working with hiding the mameinfo.dat file for now.

it really is a pretty nice front end and very fast compared to macsdlmess. i only miss "smart playlists" and i am no fan of drawers in osx apps. but well it is very good work and i intend to use it as my main frontend smile

though im also thinking about doing a rails application as a mac specific frontend. i guess that would also work nice. just have to get into the options for the command line. not sure if i will do it but ill look into it at least. i guess a real native osx gui is better anyway.

so macmameinfox really rocks. i love it. and it would be really awesome if you could get it even more itunes like with smart playlists, playlists and maybe raiting. keep up the good work.

OK, I worked out what was causing it to crash with a new mameinfo.dat (serves me right for not updating my mameinfo for so long).

So many feature requests! I'll thing about doing some of the stuff when I get some time.

Oh, and BTW CRP, you can double-click the picture to see it in a bigger window.

vas: sorry, I didn-t try to click the "icon-bar" wink

I'll modify my feature request into:
since screenshots are 1:1 resolution, mostly 320x200 or something like that, make the popup window by default 2x or 3x scaled, with filtering and everything wink

OK, I'm making a list of requests, but it looks like my time is going to be eaten up by other things for a while. I'll post a bug-fix update a bit later today, but don't expect anything else for a while.

Bug fix has arrived. Hopefully works for everyone.
  • Fixes the crash on loading new mameinfo.dat
  • Better handling of MAME32 .ini category files (like the ones that come with mameinfo.dat)
  • Leaves less accumulated crud in user defaults if you set and reset per-game options for a lot of games
  • Many architectural changes that aren't visible to the user
  • 2kB smaller to download!

Another update. Since CRP has posted the most feature wishes, he gets more wishes granted than anyone else (five of these address requests from CRP wink ):
  • Should be noticeably faster. New data model, new XML parser.
  • Customise displayed columns (see View menu).
  • Filter non-game entries and/or games without ROMs (see View menu).
  • Generates categories from manufacturer, year, etc. (Under built-in in the leftmost category column).
  • Play random game (File menu, or opt-cmd-O).
  • Jump to relevant web sites (File menu and toolbar button, also see new preferences).
  • Toolbar button for Game Options.
  • Unfortunately it's a lot bigger, mainly because I now statically link against expat, rather than dynamically linking against libxml2 included with OS X.


Notes for upgraders:
  • If you're upgrading, you need to reload game information (File menu, toolbar button, or cmd-R) before new features will work.
  • If you have previously customised your toolbar, you will need to customise it again to see new buttons.
  • Menus and preferences have been rearranged a bit since last version (a few things moved to the new View menu). Nothing has been removed, you just might have to find it again.
  • Column ordering and sizes will not carry forward from previous versions. However it will be preserved between runs going forward.


As usual, crash logs, bug reports and feature requests are welcome, although I can't guarantee I will respond to them in a timely fashion or at all :p . Usual software disclaimer applies. If anything is likely to malfunction, it would be the column hiding and reordering functionality, as I haven't tested it properly.
