That's in SVN r4902 now!

The right way to go here would be through the OSD of the emulator (which is able to get informed when it loses focus) and an additional option to enable auto-pause/resume.


Yeah thought not smile

most stand alone emulators have this so I might suggest adding it to Mame/Mess.....wish me luck. smile

EDIT: Thanks for the Very quick feature add. :0 smile

Fingers crossed smile!

The only reason I did that in case of embedded emulators (and only in case of X11) is that I have control over the 'embed-container widget' from QMC2, so it's quite simple to be informed when the widget loses/gains focus. However, the 'P' press/release simulation for the external X window is still a bit hacky and timing dependent, so I would really not like to try an equivalent approach on Windows or even Mac OS X smile.

Another thing that's actually required for this is support for MAME notifiers so QMC2 has info about the current emulator status (running / paused), and that's only available on Linux / UNIX / Mac OS X right now. But that feature will be added to the Windows port as well, sooner or later at least.

The hash files is set and as you can see, for system that use software list they are already active (but show no file). Wht it could be?

Hmmm, how will work the additional artwork classes?
The user can create his own images classes?
A macro for this will be great for use in system/software templates wink

Yes, the user will be able to create his/her own image classes... the rest will be decided on later when this works smile.
