OK, successfully (smoke-)tested on Windows as well now with the new Windows builds I've just posted.

Thanks for the info! This is "fixed" in r6540.

When running pce from the software list [draculax] how do I get QMC2 to pass the scdsys parameter?

Code:
starting emulator #0, command = J:\MESS\mess64.exe -rompath "J:\MESS\roms;J:\MESS CHDs" -hashpath "J:\MESS\hash" -samplepath "J:\MESS\samples" pce -cdrm pcecd:draculax:cdrom


If I switch to commandline and execute
Code:
mess64 pce scdsys -cdrm draculax


It works the exact way without having to TAB reset to get to the bios screen to press run.

Huh? I'm actually not aware of any "scdsys parameter"... how should QMC2 even know there is one? And what is it good for? That's totally unexpected.

Ah, you're talking about the "scdsys" software on the pce soft-list?! Well, you have to "mount" both items manually in this case, "scdsys" on "cart", and "draculax" on "cdrm":



QMC2 will then generate this command line instead:

Code:
... pce -cdrm pcecd:draculax:cdrom -cart pce:scdsys:cart

Also, if the order should be important you'd have to change the sorting of the software-list... QMC2 is dumb, it simply goes through the software tree and mounts in the order the software is listed smile.

oddi: Yeah, I've also recognized this yesterday, but it's nothing that I fixed (I haven't changed the embedder recently), it has most probably been "fixed by accident" in one of couriersud's recent changes as it was SDL2 related.

Hmmm, but I changed the way the embedder's tab-widget is inserted (related to the new "component setup")... it's possible that this influences the embed-container's resize behavior.

Thank You Rene. I had forgot about those mounting options.

Works great smile
