Yeah, I prefer zip as well... it's fast and reliable.

@Dullaron: to clarify, QMC2 doesn't require support for 7z to play the games as it's all up to the emulator (to support 7z ROMs)... the only area where it counts is the "ROMAlyzer" within QMC2 which doesn't support 7z (yet) and would tell you that the ROMs weren't found instead. However, the ROMAlyzer doesn't even support software-list ROMs (yet), only game/machine/device ROMs, so it actually doesn't matter at all.

Not to the point it can be qualified as a speed problem i guess

Of course, but some people needs to beta test sometimes. Without it, there would be no progress at all wink

qmc2 no problem. I'm stopping using the 7z at this time. Right now moving ROM's from 7z to zip. Will take some time to it do all. Very slow on moving. lol

Any chance of having a filter on the software lists so that the user can tell QMC2 what not to display

like a blacklist

E.G.
I would select the 'Filter' and type in the word 'PROTOTYPE' and qmc2 would not show any software with that word in the title.

I could then also add 'NTSC' and all those titles would also not be displayed.

this would help with large software list that have multiple titles of the same game and bloody shed loads of useless prototypes,demo's,PD,etc (well, useless to me smile )

Ever tried using the search page/feature smile? It's not exactly the same as a filter but would do what you want to do...

no it doesn't

how would I get qmc2 to NOT show the 'prototype' and show everything else in the search?

Ah, OK... well, I should then allow switching the pattern-syntax to a regular expression where you can negate matches. I actually used wildcard-matching to make this easier to use smile. But a switch for this wouldn't hurt.

See here for regular expression syntax in Qt: http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/qregexp.html

The key here is the "negative look-ahead"...

Also, I could just add a switch to negate the pattern match, regardless of the pattern syntax (so include what's matched / not matched).

I'll get back to this soon.
