ECC2 0.4

Unread post by DerMicha75 » 09 Jul 2011, 22:17

Hi all,

In last weeks (months) I did a total rewrite of the user interface code. My goal was to create a flexible layout with user defined contents. So I created "widgets" as separate parts of user interface. You can arrange these widgets for best fitting your needs and screen resolution. (interface.ini)

This time there is no update version, you have to start from scratch...

Here comes the complete changelog:

Code: Select all

Version 0.4 (2011-07-09) 
========================

fixed:

- option for playing sound in videos

added:

- totally redesigned and customizable ui
- widgets for all parts of the ui
-- support for animated platform images
-- support for animated covers
-- 4 screen widget
-- 6 screen widget
-- widgets are stackable to appear in tabs
- new view options to show/hide hidden games 
- support for animated gif as teaser image
- option to enable/disable sound for game videos (default = off)
- removed general options from options dialog (all available in widgets)
- Added more platforms, now nearly all No-Intro platforms are supported 
- images for "no animation" (in themes/default), currently only placeholders, looking for better! 

internal:

- new jgoodies version
- using Miglayout as layout manager for the new flexible layout
If my new coding destroyed some functions already working.. sorry and please write it here.

And now the download link:

Have fun.

ok...i think that wasn't already working on the old release, nevertheless......:

* when using gameImagesRotate (in standard-UI upper right corner) it shows not only pictures from the choosen game/rom.

* when using the option hide all roms , all roms will be deleted in/on the ecc-ui. That's ok so far......
..... when i now edit/change the path for the roms (in options/platform settings/rom path), the new parsing works...
....but the path info in the 'Meta Field' is wrong.

Example :
On the first parsing, all vic20-roms were in E:\eCC\ecc-user\vic20\roms
now, i changed the rompath to F:\ecc2\ecc\user\vic20\roms\no intro

after parsing, the metainfo-field still shows me : Path : E:\eCC\ecc-user\vic20\roms

* ecc-script for vic20 don't work.

Great job.

I have just a request : "Clone edit" view is interesting but not really usefull. Is it possible to turn this view into MameUI style ?
In fact, I would like a view like this :
Game 1
-> Game 1 - Game Gear
-> Game 1 - Master System
-> Game 1 - NES
-> Game 1 - Amiga
and so on ..

Hi, just like to say thanks for this!

I like the importing images and video options, makes it very easy, thank you.

From reading the forums, it seems the datfile server is no more? Could someone upload their dats somewhere ? I am currenty using the hyperspin xml's, which is fine, but would the ecc dats be more complete ?

The only issue I have found with ecc2 is that when I run a game, the emulator starts, but does not autoload the game. I have tried different commandline parameter's, but I cannot get it to work.

Oh, and have been playing around with the interface.ini, another great feature!

Thanx for feedback. The problem with starting games in emu will be gone... someday :-)

I have started to manage my own rom collection with ECC2, so I did some improvements. But this means no optimization in running games but in managing images and videos. Stay tuned, I will have a new version soon.

Some points from actual release notes:

- Image Edit widget now supports video drag and drop (also with copy/paste from one game to another)
- support for mp4 videos
- After importing images/videos an information dialog with results is shown
- in result dialog there is an option to save non matched files to a new dir (for easier manual sorting)
