I regularly work on romcenter to improve reliability and speed, and with covid-related disruptions, I haven’t taken the time to post any news. Sorry for that.
Not all current changes are visible in romcenter, but they are necessary to improve the quality of code for future development.
Some quick news on what’s going on.
I’m working on refactoring the romcenter source code to prepare migration to .net core. This mean extracting all windows specific codes like dialogs or disks accesses from the various library.
Requirement : .net framework 4, windows xp to windows 10
The 4.0 branch will be the last version compatible with windows XP (<3% of romcenter users are on xp).
Romcenter 4 is a complete rewrite of romcenter 3.7 in c# language using microsoft visual studio.
Compared to previous 3.7 version, it provides same features with a new interface and an updated engine.
Developments and fixes continue for romcenter 4 final release.
So far, I have improved stability and fix operation is also faster.
Some tricky bugs have been fixed as well.
Updating db to a new version is way faster by the use of a datapump tool instead of sql queries.
