RomCenter 4 wip

Post by RomCenter » Wed Apr 02, 2014 6:13 pm

Hi all

Some quick info on romcenter 4 progresses: repair engine is almost done, gui is also quite stable at the moment. I will post some pictures soon so that you can have a look.
I will probably post some pictures soon.

I want to make the current state of the application stable enough so that we can start fixing some roms. An alpha reversion will be released for testing and to gather your thought.

The fix database is the same as in v3 but some bugs have been fixed during the development. As the db engine is part of the db, it is in v4 as well.
I think I could achieve some optimization in the db managment (for big dat), but I will do that later.
If you have questions, please post them and I will try to give you some answers.

see you soon.

good news, as been a long time waiting for it.

btw, is there plans to reeplace firebird db by other engine ? for example sqlite (no idea if possible) in order to make db more fast and less resource usage, because firebird db is really slow in single core CPUs specially with M.A.M.E db, it could take sometimes upto 20~30 minutes to make the db :S

Hi
Thank you for sqlite info. It seems quite interesting and I could give give it a try, but I can't for now. Romcenter uses firebird and all db-related operations are in stored proc. This saves a lot of work when moving from delphi to .net.
Sqlite does not implement stored proc.

This leads me to the performance issue. I know it is quite slow for big datas. Db operations are very intensive and quite complicated. Improvment in db procesing is part of future plans, and the solution could be to move operations into a c# Library. If I get better performances, I will move all stored procedures to .net and then, trying sqlite will be straighforward.
