The Generator 2.5 has been released! (October 26, 2004)
« on: October 26, 2004, 10:05:36 pm »
Here's a complete change list:
Quote
2.5.0

Interface:

Removed bank no. from the MAME Options section (use alternate text instead)
Re-ordered Misc. Hardware Options alphabetically.
Renamed '512 S Fix' --> '512k S1' and moved to Encryption Options
Added window title and "Clear" button to SHA1 window.
Fixed some reload problems with disabled/enabled items.
Fixed language on Linux boxes - thanks Iria58
Re-added 16mb for C1 through C6 and for V1
Added 32mb for P1, C1,C2
C2 is now required
Moved "Use Sha1" to the "Sha1 Values" window
Fixed a Mozilla bug -- Paste buttons caused strange behavior
Removed "Decrypted V roms only" above the V roms.  
Fixed the link for the official Neo-Geo site. It seems the USA site is gone :(
Tweak SHA1 Values window

Misc:

Cleaned up code a little.
(Resulted in a nearly 20 kb size reduction in generator.js)

Function:

All
Fixed a problem using NULL in the Parent name input
Changes in rom naming (if generic naming is enabled and the rom is not named xxx-x#.bin it isn't generic)

Nebula
Tweaked the auto-butlayout system. This makes detecting which butlayout is needed much more effective.

MAME
Added code to make gambling games work (use gambling fix). Vliner has no controls. - Thanks Neo :)
Bank Number removed (Alternate Text = 2 (kof2000))
Added 0 before rom sizes less than 1mb
Fixed handling of 512k s1 roms (The macro was removed in recent versions)
Slightly changed alt. text handling;  This is shown even if encryption is not used
Added code to extract S rom from decrypted roms (if S data is present) (Thanks to FerchogtX for this idea)
Slightly changed S rom handling for encrypted roms
Disabled outputting drivers for versions of MAME older than .70; the old drivers were just too buggy

FBA
Removed "kotm2 fix" option.  It's now automatically added if needed.
Added 0 before rom sizes less than 1mb
Slightly changed "kotm2 fix" output
Changed so that it says 0 instead of NULL when no "BDF" flags are present


Please let me know of any problems :)
