Romcenter 4 beta 3 released

Postby RomCenter » Tue Sep 08, 2015 7:04 pm

Hi all

Sorry for the lack of updates these days, but after my holidays (in Australia :D ), I was really busy IRL.
I also had some troubles with the web site : paypal blocking the account for contract violation (no more donations :( ), spam attacks, php script crash after version update....
This lead me to look for a new site which will be modern and responsive (mobile ready) and easier to maintain (less custom scripts).
It will be ready by the end of the month with a new bug tracker application (mantis). Current wiki and forum will still be available of course.

Back to RomCenter. Here is a wip beta 3 version. I fixed some problems reported here and add some features like filtering capacities during mame import. This reduce by 2 the number of games in mame and make it more manageable. Note that slot/poker/fruit machine filter is based on a list of mame drivers, and not every games are removed (unfortunately, there is no flag to identify this category in mame, like ismechanical).

RomCenter 4.0.0.beta3
- Add bios and device filter
- Add slot/poker/fruit machine filtering (not all removed).
- Fix bad display in filtering options.
- Add mechanical filter for mame > 0.162
- Improve sample refresh
- Fix sample status not refreshed
- Sort datagrid by default. This fix items count not displayed
- Upgrade some librairies (zip, db, gui)
- Fix chd v3/v4/v5 (bad sha1 usage)
Download here

I'm working now on sample split mode. I will also have a look to errors while loading dat. Please if you're in trouble with some dat, post their names and errors messages.
One last thing: the romcenter log file is located in C:\ProgramData\romcenter.

:!: THIS IS A BETA VERSION. BACKUP YOUR ROMS.
:!: Report bugs here
:!: Check if similar bug is not yet reported
:!: Focus on the fix operations

Enjoy
