EmuLoader v2.6 Final

posted in Frontend News by outsider on Sep 13th, 2001

EmuLoader is a great frontend for MAME. Here's the following changes:
  • If you take a snapshot when playing, it will automatically appear in the frontend, after quitting the game (valid only for in-game snapshots) Note that for this to work, you need to set in-game snapshot picture type before running the game
  • Fixed a bug that was generating a "File not found" error message if the MAME initialization file is missing (only in the initialization of the frontend)
  • Added an icon to the Random button (thanks MAMu_)
  • Fixed a preview pictures display when clicking on "Random Game" button
  • New picture format supported: GIF images (including transparent GIFs)
  • Transparent background for preview pictures now supported (.gif and .png) This feature is for Marshall Brooks cabinets and control panels, so they can be displayed without the white background
  • Added new option in "Preferences" screen to support the transparent GIF images: "Use Pictures Transparency" This option is also available in the main menu "Pictures" and in the pictures popup menu
  • Updated the component Graphics32 to version 0.99z
  • Replaced the column "Depth" for "Frequency", since the color depth info has become obsolete
  • Updated the custom games manager to include the new "Frequency" info
  • Replaced the resource image files (NoTitleSnapshot, NoCabinet, etc...) by PNG format with transparent background
  • Added new option in "Preferences" screen to support the transparent resource images: "Use Resource Images Transparency" This option is also available in the main menu "Pictures" and in the pictures popup menu
  • Added new picture button: "Control Panel Layouts". This is different from "Control Panels", because this is the layout pictures, while the other is the actual arcade picture of the controls panel (Marshal Brooks request) The .ZIP file for this new type is "cplayouts.zip"
  • Changed the "Show Marquees" button for a gray computer. The yellow computer is now "Show Control Panel Layouts"
  • Updated the "MAME Extended Options" screen to include the new "Control Panel Layouts" folder
  • Updated slideshow to include the new "Control Panel Layouts" picture type
  • Fixed a small bug in "Check for Missing Pictures". EL was not searching for the "snap.zip" file, only for "ingame.zip"
  • Delete the option "Make Windows Desktop Icons Transparent"
