Also, the warning from your side that I recall was more like "try to do it with the same binary, doing MAME/MESS separation at run-time". Well, if I had done it this way then the transition would've been basically the same... there are differences between MAME and MESS which all of you now seamlessly ignore. And so do I smile.

Does QMC2 already have the feature to record videos, using MAME -aviwrite, -mngwrite and -wavwrite commands?
I searched about this all the frontend and in "The 'ultimate' guide to QMC2", but I didn't found any mention of this.
I'm considering write a request for this feature in the bug tracker, but I just need to know if this feature is already available in any way in the QMC2.

Code:
•To record an AVI/MNG/WAV:
mame <game> –aviwrite <filename>.avi
mame <game> -mngwrite <filename>.mng
mame <game> -wavwrite <filename>.wav


To exemplify one of the countless uses of this feature, here is an video someone made using this commands some time ago to simulate how the N64DD would work at normal speed.

Sorry, but I can't reproduce this. Can anybody else reproduce oddi's problem?

There are timestamps stored in qmc2.ini for all of the imported files:

Code:
rene@thunder:~/.qmc2> egrep "EmuInfoImport|GameInfoImport|SoftwareInfoImport" qmc2.ini
DatInfoDatabase\EmuInfoImportFiles=/home/rene/.qmc2/mameinfo.dat, /home/rene/.qmc2/messinfo.dat
DatInfoDatabase\EmuInfoImportDates=1431407138, 1431407138
DatInfoDatabase\GameInfoImportFiles=/home/rene/.qmc2/history.dat, /home/rene/.qmc2/sysinfo.dat
DatInfoDatabase\GameInfoImportDates=1430653144, 1431407138
DatInfoDatabase\SoftwareInfoImportFiles=/home/rene/.qmc2/history.dat
DatInfoDatabase\SoftwareInfoImportDates=1430653144

Let me know if the timestamps are updated when you (re)import them! Please also check if the modification dates for these files in the file-system are not "somewhere in the future"!!

The timestamps are used to find out if a file has been updated. However, that's actually not different from before.

When that's true, others (on Windows) should be able to confirm an issue here?!

I'll check myself tomorrow. I can't reproduce this on Linux at least, could be a Windows-specific issue perhaps. Or is it a permission problem and QMC2 can't update qmc2.ini at all?

In that case there should be a warning in the front-end log that "the configuration file isn't writable" (or so), BTW.

Should be fixed now in SVN r6670! Sorry, oddi, for not taking your report seriously enough in the first place smile!
