Finally, the second phase of the major core change is finished.The ROMs database format has changed
... again. First thing you must do after starting the frontend is create the games list for all systems
If you don't do this, you'll get non-stop crashes... this change
was necessary for future improvements. Now the files can be
expanded even more because they are using tags, just like the main
games list files. Important fixes were made. This update is a must for
Go to main menu and click Create Games List. Then select All Systems in the new dialog.
Emu Loader is now also capable to split CHD files into three different categories
, Compact Flash Card
. If you go to Game Details
of a game with CHD files, you'll notice the new CHD icons
in the files list. This was an important change for future improvements... :)
Deleting game files is more stable now.
collisions detection is implemented. These ROMs cannot be validated
thru SHA-1 checksum yet, but at least they are being tagged. Naomi GD-ROM Bios
is the only affected set, with 6 ROMs using the same CRC32, but different SHA-1.
Many changes to the user interface were made as well. You might notice them if you look close enough. :)
It's getting hard to support 640x480 and 800x600 resolutions but I'm doing my best.
I haven't forgot about the new Demul v0.7 (August 18, 2016)
. New games and new machines. MAME CHDs are also officially supported.
But don't worry, older
Demul builds are still supported...
One last change. Load memory card files. I completely
forgot that a memcard created by one machine is not compatible with
another machine (psa, psu, psj...). File ini_files\mame_memcard_lastused.ini
is no longer valid.
Instead, all files will be saved in ini_files\memcard_lastused\mame\machine_name.ini
. The machine_name.ini
string is replaced by the machine name (psa.ini
Now a single game can have different memcard files each machine. This change was necessary for the Sony PlayStation
Remember that you can select what machine to play the game with Select Machine to Run Game
in games popup menu.
You can expect more nice improvements in the future!!! :-D
Please read the change log
for more details.
