Still fixing and improving operations.
I started to scan and fix big folders with mame 0.160 this week end. This raises some crashes and bugs as expected. I'm currently looking for the problems.
I'm quite happy with the fix speed. No more time to wait after operations to analyse and load...
To be continued...
Some news today on the forthcoming rc4.
To improve performance with big dat (mame), I had to rewrite part of the fix engine. This is now done, and all fix test are now ok.
I will do some real tests and finish optimization with the latest mame release.
After that, I have some bugs to fix in the gui. Then a beta will be released for you.
Still working every day on rc4.
I started to optimize database updates while fixing operations.
It was something I would like to do, but later. Unfortunatly, I came across some problems and I decided to do it now.
I reworked the database design and simplify it a bit. Some meaningless info have been removed to improve speed and most queries have been optimized.
Now, I'm updating source code to reflect database changes.
In the current state, with a mame database and more than 100 roms folders, I can rename roms and update display and db in real time !
Some new on what's going on with romcenter 4.
I work on it almost every day, and things are going well.
3 weeks ago, I did some tests with mame 0.154 and a load of roms folder (130 folders, one of them with 3000+ files). It was very slow.
So I started to redesign the database to make it work with current version of mame and its huge number of roms.
New structure is finished, and I have to adapt main program to work with it. For now, creating db, updating db, loading and displaying roms, adding and removing folders are working. I still have to adapt fix operations.
A beta version is still planned as soon as possible.
