Generator 3.0.0 released!
« on: June 29, 2005, 02:29:08 am »
Well, it's been a long time coming, but here's version 3.0.0

Code: [Select]
3.0.0

Interface:

If "Clear all" is pressed, it now unchecks "Use SHA1"
Added 128kb as an available size for p2 (kotm)
Modified how version info. is displayed
Paste buttons are now not displayed at all anymore in any other browser than I.E.
Removed "Neo-Geo" link, Neo-Geo site is gone :(
sha1 window no longer auto-saves on exit -- you must click the "save" button
Added ability to Read a variety of sources for Neo-Geo info.
 - Just copy and paste the info into the output area (Below the "Read Driver" button)
 - Can read dats from CLRMAMEPro, Romcenter, or Nebula, and drivers from MAME and FBA.
Added P3 rom, this has been needed for quite some time...
Portugese translation updated :)  Thanks again Jimmy_Page!
French translation updated :) Thanks as always Squaresoft74! - http://necstasy.emunova.net/
Spanish translation updated :) Thanks to FerchogtX - http://fbap.1emulation.com/

Misc:

Now checks hash values (CRC and SHA1) for bad values (anything that is not 0-9 or A-F)
Used www.spinwave.com's GifCruncher to optimize images a bit
Completely re-wrote name generating code.
 - smaller size and easier to modify
Re-wrote code for doing rom sizes
Modifications to generic naming
 - If m1 is not checked and generic naming is used, m1d is output as xxx-m1.bin not xxx-m1d.bin
Completely re-wrote files/sha1.htm
 - Resulted in a large reduction in size, easier to maintain and modify, and it's much better code
Removed option from settings.ini to pick language file, it caused more trouble that it was worth

FBA:

512k S1 fix now only works if there is no S rom
Fixed a bug introduced in 2.7.5 that caused V (sample) roms to be identified as graphics
If CRC32 is less than 7, CRC is output as 0.

MAME:

Completely removed support for older drivers.
 - If someone else want to add support, that would be greatly appreciated. :)
If CRC32 is less than 7, CRC is output as "NO_DUMP".
Fixed SHA1 length error (always gave error, even if correct!)

Nebula:

If CRC32 is less than 7, CRC is output as 0.

This is a very old topic, but was wondering if there is a new version of the generator? the drivers do not work on the new version of FBA it seems :(
