QMC2 0.70 Released
QMC2 0.70 has been released. It's synced with MAME 0.180 which was released earlier today!
Besides the usual bug-fixes and improvements QMC2 now has a new icon cache database which is used to slightly speed up icon loading and to make it more independent from the user's concrete setup. The support for MAME output notifiers has been redone from scratch and should work on any OS now (including Windows, though this is still untested). And last but not least we've added optional automatic adjustment of the emulator's statename parameter in software-lists for easier separation of state-files. See the change-log below for details!
The source code is now available in the download section. As always, expect updated binary packages within the next few hours and days.
The QMC2 dev-team
Full change-log for 0.70:
fix: ROMAlyzer / collection rebuilder: corrected the logged uncompressed size of a dump when reading from a ZIP archive through minizip (minor)
fix: image or icon sources weren't refreshed correctly when the decompressor setup (zip, 7z or libarchive) was changed on-the-fly
fix: honor the component setup / tab order when updating the tab icon for the currently selected view
imp: removed all 'terminate emulator' actions as they don't work with modern MAME ('kill emulator' actions still work and got a nicer icon)
imp: updated template format to v0.2.9 which ... (Read More)

Arcade Reference App
I just want to let you know that is live on the app store "Arcade Reference" my app dedicated to Arcade Coinop!
The app takes the data exported from MAME and from various other files (Snapshots, History, MAMEInfo ecc.), it groups it together and it organizes it in order to have all the information in your device as a guide or simply as a reference for reading information and tips.
As a functional choice, at the moment only the Parent set are shown. In addition, all "mechanical" machines and all the "Gambling" games (Video Poker, Blackjack etc.) have been eliminated. The result is a list of about 3600 Arcade titles from the 70s to the 2000s.
At the moment, there may be inaccuracies or missing information. Also, might be present in the db, roms related to computers, bios or other devices. I invite you to notify me if this occurs, in order to update and improve the database.
Please keep in mind that this is a preliminary version... I hope to integrate and add new features in future updates.
It's available for free for iPhone and iPad.
No Android version sorry, just because I don't know Java..
