yes that is correct behavior

now once you have a selected snapshot , if you then move the mouse pointer up/down it DOESN'T show any more snapshots from other games unless you leave the widget window.

Ah, you have "SW snaps on mouse hover" turned on... well, I still don't see your problem, because when you click an item it's entering a "different mode" than when you're just hovering the list with the mouse pointer... as soon as it leaves the viewer-widget it enters "hovering mode" again. I wouldn't like to change that a) because I remember it was hard to make it work cleanly in both modes wink and b) because it's consistent with the way it works when "SW snaps on mouse hover" is turned off.

Also, when entering a different item would change the snapshot, it would be nearly impossible to reach the viewer's context-menu (only when the mouse position stays on the item!), so that's not really practicable.

Yeah... another reason is that is has to work together with keyboard input... so selecting an item always has precedence over hovering an item.

Hello! I love the qmc2. It allows me to manage my roms, as well as providing a front end. Best of all, it is for multiple operating systems!

As a novice to this app, as well as mame in general, I may be able to provide a different perspective for suggestions to this awesome app.

qmc2-sdlmame
  • Appling stylesheets to the app seems useless to me. Just focus on a simple, native looking design.
  • Icon bar duplicate functions within the apps menu bar. DRY - Don't Repeat Yourself! You could easily do without the icon bar.
  • Top-right quadrant has too many tabs. Text when fullscreen on my 27" iMac still get cut off. Text and icons are not necessary. This area needs to be thought out and redesigned. It isn't working well.
  • MP3 player is pointless. A similar function could possibly be added to the qmc2-arcade.
  • Logs could be displayed in a seperate window upon request. There is no need to have so much information displayed in one window all the time. Keep it simple.
  • Create option to exclude bios from game list.
  • Demo mode should be an option within qmc2-arcade, with zero pause, activated on preset time of inactivity, and cancelled on keystroke. It should function similar to a screen saver.


qmc2-arcade
  • Keep the theme as simple as possible. A background image and floating bubbles is unnecessary. Simply a black background will do.
  • When there is only a few games, moving down the list removes previous games off the screen.
  • Clicking or selecting a game launches it. A player one icon that duplicates this function is unnecessary. Don't Repeat Yourself!
  • I can't see how the search feature would work with an iPac. I would look into designing your app with the simplicity seen with the apple tv. It's GUI is clean and intuitive with its limited controls. It simply works.
  • mp3 player could be an alternative to demo mode for qmc2-arcade, or it could be played until a preset amount of time when demo mode would kick in.


These are just my ideas. Keep of the great work. I hope to see qmc2 continue to grow! Myself using mac and linux leaves my options limited.

Thank you!

Many/most of the things you mention are optional in QMC2 / QMC2 Arcade, that is you can switch them on or off just as you like...

Me wonder if the option to change from non-filtered to filtered softlists can be moved from the button, to an option, as per mock-up done:





(since it's easy to miss click the arrow, and have QMC2 reload the whole list again)

It *IS* an option, and when it's disabled it will make the filter-buttons unavailable. So... what? smile

All my machine/game states in both MESS/MAME are grey. I've cleared caches and used Check ROMS but doesn't seem to be looking in the right location for them.

I definitely have the correct roms in c:/MAME/roms, and the working directory is set to c:/MAME in QMC2. Starting any game with a grey state works perfectly so mess knows where to get the roms but QMC2 doesn't. With MESS this also means that QMC2 doesn't read the software lists.

They were all green a few days ago but obviously some configuration option has changed but have been unable to find what it is. Help!
