3.7.5

Misc.

Minor code cleanups
Huge speedup with Firefox and Opera (output to a var then move it to the textarea)


Interface:

Dropdown menus for P4 and P5, V5 and V6 now added.
Source can be found here:
   http://www.php-development.ru/javascripts/smart-forms.php.
I'm not sure exactly how to interpret what the allowed usage is
for the script, so I guess I'll be very liberal with it :p
Removed the ability to hide/disable the error log
Renamed "SHA1 Values" to "SHA1/Merged"
Added Romcenter and ClrMAMEPro to dropdown of available output types
Thanks to JiMMy_PaGe & MichaelNET for the language updates.


Parser:

Fixed minor issue with Vx roms, they should be checked properly now
Can now get sha1 information from ClrMAMEPro dats
Quotes (") are no longer gotten with Manufacturer info in ClrMAMEPro dats
Fixed rom description being chopped by one character in ClrMAMEPro dats
SMA roms are now found
Romcenter dat reading has been completely re-written and vastly improved


All:

It is now possible to have a P4, P5, V5, and V6 rom.
SMA roms can be output (properly)


MAME:

Proper loading of 16mb PCB Cx roms.
pbobblen Vx are now output correctly


FBA:

Fixed a bug with PCM2 output. It was missing this line:
   nRet = NeoInit();
 This would cause a black screen because the game was never Init'd.
Tweaked output a bit, entirely cosmetic


ClrMAMEPro:

Added the ability to output these dats
   1. The Neo-Geo bios files are hard-coded for now
   a. they can be changed by editing settings.ini
ClrMAMEPro dats can use SHA1 info, enable it the same way you do MAME
   1. In the "SHA1/Merged" window by checking "Use Sha1?" and clicking "Save"
To show a rom as merged, open the "SHA1/Merged" window and check the checkbox
 for that particular rom.  You must click "Save" or any changes you make will
 be lost when you exit the window.


Romcenter

Added the ability to output these dats
   1. The Neo-Geo bios files are hard-coded for now
        a. they can be changed by editing settings.ini
To show a rom as merged, open the "SHA1/Merged window and check the checkbox
 for that particular rom. You must click "Save" or any changes you make will
 be lost when you exit the window.
Romcenter requires the game title of the parent, a prompt will come up during
the creation of the dat to ask you that information (if it doesn't exist already).

It's been much too long since the last release (5 months!), so go ahead and grab this one :)

Hi iq_132

Your generator is very helpful.
But i've a question. Hope i don't make a mistake. :p

As i'm hardly lazy, i would like to know if it's possible to include an option who could read an already existing neogeo.dat  (from Nebula/kawaks for example) then generator could automacally/partially report & fill some fields (to make faster MAMEDriver, FBA Driver)... :biggrin:

A kind of converting tool from nebula's neogeo.dat to MAME/FBAdriver indeed.

It is already possible! Paste the info from the dat into the area beneath the "Create driver" button and click the "Read driver" button.
