    Hi all

    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.

    I'm now focusing more on issues reported so far, trying to reproduce them, so keep reporting bugs.

    If someone want to translate into another language, this is already possible with the current version. See release description for more details.

    See you

    Romcenter 4 release candidate 3 is released. Donwload it for free.

    I'm almost done with the v4 development.

    This version adds internationalization. The base translation file is available for everyone to create their own translation.

    This release includes french translation.

    See [url=]here[/url] for more info.

    Somes troubles are still happening with nes and n64 plugins. This will be addressed in next release. Until then, standart crc is used for these consoles (only headerless roms can be identified).

    You can report issues [url=]directly here[/url]. You can also vote for your favorites work items.


    The romcenter log file is C:\ProgramData\romcenter\romcenter_xml.log.

    Important note: all roms removed by romcenter are not deleted, they are moved to "C:\Users\<name>\AppData\Local\RomCenter\archive" folder. This behaviour can be changed in games base settings.

    Don't forget to regularly clean this folder.
