Hi QMC2

Thank for continuing to develop and improve this awesome program. I just grabbed the latest SVN and playing around with it now.

I have several questions but I'll start with just three:

1)I've done a fresh install of UME64 and of QMC2. Where does QMC2 create the UME.ini file? It does not seem to create an ini file for UME64, I've looked in both the QMC2 installation folder as well as the QMC2 folder placed in the Administrator parent folder. Same with the UME install folder. No ini file or even a folder.


2)The reason I asked about #1, is because I'd like to know why UME64 is not recognizing the changes I'm making to my HLSL settings within the QMC2 options menu? Every time I start a game all HLSL settings are default despite the changes I made in the QMC2 options menu. I'd like to take a look at the UME64.ini file, where ever it might be, and try to make the changes there.

3)Is it possible to apply and write HLSL changes to each *separate* individual game using QMC2? Rather than opening up and editing the ini file for each game, is it possible QMC2 can save the HLSL settings I make from within each game, and write them automatically to their respective ini file? If so, how can I accomplish this?

Thanks and keep up the good work!

You too R. Belmont smile

I suggest you first read this FAQ smile... in short: QMC2 doesn't use ANY ini's, but CAN be used to export to them. All is done via the command line in QMC2.

Excellent. Thank you my friend. The FAQ clears thing up and sheds some light on how I can accomplish some of these things.

Another question please if you don't mind...Why does QMC2 crash when I open it sometimes? It's random but sometimes when launching it, it will load the software list and maybe about 15 seconds later, if I try to select a game or go into a menu the whole program crashes.

The other thing is that when it crashes, and I reopen it, sometimes I'll get a message saying that QMC2 can't open because another instance of it is already running. But when I check windows task manager>processes, there's no instance of it running at all.

Is this a common bug?

I'm running windows 7 64bit

Thanks and keep up the good work smile

Which version of QMC2 are you using here? In any case, if you could please try with "SVN latest" and let me know the steps to reproduce this I'd be happy to try fixing it if it's still present.

This is no bug but expected behavior smile. See here! There's a "flag" in qmc2.ini that tells it that "an instance is currently running" (similar to a mount flag in U**X file-systems), and it doesn't get cleared when QMC2 crashes (that's why you *can* ignore it, but it's not recommended).

I'm using version 0.44(SVN 5988)

Is there a crash.log somewhere that I can look for then upload it here?

I'm currently creating a new VC++ build from r6016 and will publish it when it's done... if you can still reproduce it with this version, we have something to fix smile.

Hmm, that version is fairly current, yes... there's no crash-log or something. And the front-end log will likely not tell us much here.

oddi, for the love of god can you PLEASE edit this post(post 94930)? The quote you posted contains so many characters it's requiring us to scroll or browser horizontally to read anything.
