EmuLoaderEmu Loader v8.4.1 is released. Emu Loader was created to manage an arcade games emulator called M.A.M.E. With this frontend, you can change practically any option that is available in the emulator, like the screen resolution, sound quality, game options, etc. There are lots of extra features that makes your life much more easier, like the snapshots viewer where all captured images from M.A.M.E. games can be viewed when selecting games.

Emu Loader Changelog:
FATALITY! Demul games with CHD files and ZiNc games with CDs were not being set as "Media Type = Disc" when creating games lists, messing up with games filtering and games files validation system; you MUST create games list for both systems again, it's the only way to fix it
Fixes and changes to "Filter Arcade Games by Main CPU" ("Miscellaneous Filters" tool bar button)
- partial string support in TEdit box; you don't need to type the full CPU title anymore
- files "arcade\games\mame_maincpu.ini" and "arcade\games\hbmame_maincpu.ini" were not being loaded to the combo box control, making it impossible to select a CPU to filter the list
- selecting a CPU in the combo box list will automatic filter the games list... as it should have been!
- the CPU TEdit box will be emptied when selecting a CPU in the combo box
- moved the CPU combo box list to the left as it makes more sense
- improved filtering speed when games list is in grouped view mode
- tweaks to improve CPU names search speed
Changes to the startup process
- detailed messages in splash screen so you know what the frontend is actually doing
- on a clean install (no arcade/console/computer games files found), the splash screen is closed to avoid being on top of the clean install dialog, making it look like the frontend is frozen, even though the timer is still running
- if you have arcade emulators selected but the executable files are not found, the frontend will no longer ask you to select them again ... old code leftover, sorry
- source code cleaning and some minor tweaks applied
Changes to "Run Game (Extra Parameters)" (games popup menu)
- added support to four (4) memory card slots; PGM2 games use it
- detection of memory card file extensions (from -listxml output) so you can use MAME's supported file extensions per game/driver
(you need to create MAME/HBMAME games list again)
- file extension filters in select file dialog changed to support any extension (.*)
- mouse double-click on a listed memcard file will add it to "slot 1"
- resize memcard files list panel according to slots count
Demul v0.582 and older is no longer supported!
- games with GD-ROM files were never properly detected and were handled by the frontend in a extremely weird way
- nobody probably use old Demul builds anyway because I haven't got a single bug report for the last 2 years
- from now on, only Demul v0.7 and newer will be supported
Detection of "ced_videodisc" disk region tag in -listxml output
- for "disk" entries and MAME only
- "CED VideoDisc" is handled as "Disc" (or "CD") media type
- this is purely cosmetic and it doesn't alter the way Emu Loader validates CHD files
New MAME CHD media type: "Video Tape"
- detection of "vhs" region tag in -listxml output ("disk" entries only)
- new game file IDs: "21 -> Game Video Tape"; "22 -> Device Video Tape"; "23 - Bios Video Tape"
- this is purely cosmetic and it doesn't alter the way Emu Loader validates CHD files
New "mediatype_tag" for MAME CHDs, Demul CHDs and ZiNc games
- tags added when creating games lists
- tags are listed in "arcade\games\system_name.elrom" files
- only "Disc" media type have this new tag (CD, DVD, Laserdisc, GD-ROM, AudioCD, CED VideoDisc)
- supported tags: "cdrom", "laserdisc", "gdrom", "audiocd", "ced_videodisc"
- for a future improvement, and there won't be exclusive icons for them, only a general "disc" icon
- MAME software lists "MIGHT" be supported in the future... maybe
- this is purely cosmetic and it doesn't alter the way Emu Loader validates CHD files
