I see no problem actually... I have all these 4 set up:

Code:
rene@thunder:~/.qmc2> grep ".dat" qmc2.ini | grep qmc2-sdlmame | grep FilesAndDirectories
qmc2-sdlmame\FilesAndDirectories\MameInfoDat=/home/rene/.qmc2/mameinfo.dat
qmc2-sdlmame\FilesAndDirectories\MameHistoryDat=/home/rene/.qmc2/history.dat
qmc2-sdlmame\FilesAndDirectories\MessSysinfoDat=/home/rene/.qmc2/sysinfo.dat
qmc2-sdlmame\FilesAndDirectories\MessInfoDat=/home/rene/.qmc2/messinfo.dat

When I "touch" the files and reload the game list my log will contain this (which looks good):

Code:
07:05:44.121: DAT-info database: importing system info-texts from '/home/rene/.qmc2/history.dat'
07:05:46.977: DAT-info database: done (importing system info-texts from '/home/rene/.qmc2/history.dat')
07:05:46.977: DAT-info database: importing system info-texts from '/home/rene/.qmc2/sysinfo.dat'
07:05:47.092: DAT-info database: done (importing system info-texts from '/home/rene/.qmc2/sysinfo.dat')
07:05:47.093: DAT-info database: 29393 game info records imported
07:05:47.932: DAT-info database: importing emulator info-texts from '/home/rene/.qmc2/mameinfo.dat'
07:05:49.276: DAT-info database: done (importing emulator info-texts from '/home/rene/.qmc2/mameinfo.dat')
07:05:49.277: DAT-info database: importing emulator info-texts from '/home/rene/.qmc2/messinfo.dat'
07:05:49.549: DAT-info database: done (importing emulator info-texts from '/home/rene/.qmc2/messinfo.dat')
07:05:49.550: DAT-info database: 11075 emulator info records imported

You can follow these instructions in case you're impatient and have the MAME-dev tools installed (i.e. to build MAME).

Sorry Rene, but here not work, removed .qmc2 folder and reconfiguration - not luck.
If ticket "Load Mame game..etc etc " , this method work, but qmc2 load very slow.
With import method qmc2 load for 4-5 secs.

Sorry Oddi, what?

DAT files are only imported once / whenever they change, so if that takes some time it's not a problem because it's just a one time operation.

This is my setup with regard to DAT info sources:



The info-texts are only (re)imported when I update these files (i.e. when I use the command 'touch' to set a new modification date on them). Otherwise data is read directly from the (DAT-info) database (no loading / importing required).

You can force a reimport by clicking on the respective refresh button(s).

Maybe I will not release the new unofficial version, just saw the changes.
I'm not interested on a unified UME-like launcher but it is not René's fault.
I pay my attention for MESS only and not for MAME or MAME + MESS
UME or an unified UME-like launcher are heavy weight's for my old computer.
Sorry, Christina. frown
