Re: Java problem on Arch Linux

Hi dodgypast, Negatron failed while reading the file plugin.ini. This can be because of 2 things: - the path to the plugin.ini is invalid. Check your mame.ini and see if the entry "pluginspath" points to a plugini.ini file. - the content of your plugin.ini is invalid. In this case, copy-paste its co...

Re: Problem with webm

Thanks for going to such lengths to keep on using Media Preview :)
It's quite heartening to see somebody being that much fond of your creation.

I'll try to take a look at this webm issue but really no promises here...

Re: Problem with webm

Webm is VP9 but mp4 is still about h264 on YouTube. The last beta version was like 6 years ago. I bet that the underlying video decoding library (ffmpeg) has changed a lot since. Sorry, I won't even try to see if I can still make this work :p I developed Media Preview thinking I could make a living ...

Re: Information/Preview Pane questions/issue

I meant A/ show the "missing artwork" image.
Switching automatically back and forth between the multiview and the selected artwork would be confusing for anybody but you and me. So, I'll stay with A.

Re: Information/Preview Pane questions/issue

1. It's not by design. I never thought it would be used like that. But this won't be hard to be fixed ;) If the selected artwork is missing, I'll put the default artwork. 2. Sure, can do. 3. I can add the option to disable tabs easily. As for the individual preview items, it's more complicated. See ...

Re: Negatron.ini is missing - Error

I see, so it's just you getting around the inner working of MAME. Well, it's really not a common use case so I won't fix this.
Chdman.exe is really the main tool to know about as soon as you start playing around with softlist, HDD and CD images. Enjoy your programming discoveries!

Re: Negatron.ini is missing - Error

Indeed, you don't need to install Java 11 or 14 with the Windows pack. You can keep your system-wide Java 8, Negatron simply uses its embedded version of Java 14. It doesn't work at restart because the entry chdman (6th line in negatron.ini) is empty, probably because Negatron couldn't find it autom...

Re: Warning: Unable to create history.db

This is an error output by MAME, not by Negatron, as history.db is a MAME file.
It's just my guess but MAME is surely trying to create it within a folder where it doesn't have the writing rights. Just go to your ui.ini, probably in ~/.mame, and change the entry "historypath" to a different path.

Re: Eternal Loading

If you can't get your machine back to normal even after deactivating all the options or uninstalling Media Preview and then rebooting your machine, this means something else is slowing down your computer. I can't help you any further here as I don't know what else you installed on your machine. I'm ...

Re: XSetErrorHandler() called with a GDK error trap pushed error

And I found the culprit!
It's fixed locally so the next version of Negatron will fix this issue. Cheers!
