The new version has been posted. I couldn't make it crash with software-lists.

OK cool. But first I'm gonna continue testing this 59xx version. I just did another fresh install and wiped the QMC2 folder that's in my libraries clean. So far no crashes but we'll see.

Quick question....is it recommended to delete the contents of an older qmc2 admin/libraries folder before installing and running a newer version? And just out of curiosity, why do you have QMC2 place it in that location by default?


The developers of MESS have my sincere gratitude. Thank you guys.

Oh yeah I almost forgot to ask....when I deleted the QMC2 folder in the Libraries/Admin folder, I noticed that my software list favorites were no longer there. Not the main favorites mind you(I made a back up smile ) but the favorites for the consoles like snes, gba, etc. Which qmc2 file in the recycle bin do I need to restore, in order to salvage the favorites I had for my "console" games?

No. I try to keep all new features backward-compatible to old settings, upgrading it more or less seamlessly. However, settings or cache files that are somehow "unclean" (but still compatible format-wise) will likely cause the same results in a newer version.

This is currently supported back to version 0.37. I regularly remove code for "ancient" versions to keep it clean.

Because QMC2 has a UNIX background smile.

But... when you upgrade MAME/MESS/UME from SVN fairly often, and the version number doesn't change (lately also when the output from -listfull doesn't change), all emulator caches must be cleared "manually"! And since QMC2 has no way to find out if software-lists changed, it's the same here. To do so, either use the -cc (cache clear) command line switch or "Tools" -> "Clean up" -> "Clear ALL emulator caches" from the menu (and reload the game/machine list afterwards).

When any caches are not up to date, everything can happen smile.

Software-list favorites are stored in qmc2.ini.

Search for "Favorites\<system>\SoftwareNames" and "Favorites\<system>\DeviceConfigs" and copy all you find to the new qmc2.ini (below the respective [MAME], [MESS] or [UME] section).

Welp I've been using QMC2 for quite a while on and off throughout the day and knock on wood, no crashes yet. smile

Maybe deleting those old files in the qmc2 folder did the trick. Let's hope so.

Anyway, loving the program. I love the fact that it allows you to import and export your config settings to any ini file you want. That rocks!

But here's the thing though, Q....

Remember a couple years ago and many many MAME builds back, MAME had this feature where it was smart enough to save whatever changes we made to the *IN-GAME* HLSL settings to that game's respective ini file. It was cool, because we could make those changes on the fly, and they would save and be there the next time we start the game. I realize that QMC2 does allow per game HLSL read/write functionality via its own menu, but wouldn't it be nice if it brought this function back, and somehow hooked into MAME/UME, and took the changes we make in the in-game HLSL settings, then save them directly to the game's ini file upon exit, just like MAME used to do all those builds ago?

Q, is this something you think you could maybe work on? I really don't understand why the devs took this awesome feature out of MAME/HLSL.
