Re: I like this UI very much, but is there a way to only show the installed roms?

It shouldn't be a problem. Is Negatron still checking ROM statuses? This is the case if you can still see the progress indicator (blue loop) at the bottom right corner of the main window. Let Negatron finish its check and everything should be fine. You can hover your mouse above the progress indicat...

Re: I like this UI very much, but is there a way to only show the installed roms?

When you see the main window, look above the machine list, next to the filter box, there is a "+" button. Click on it to get access to the advanced filter form, appearing on the right side of the main window. Then look for "ROM & CHD Status", uncheck "Missing" so that the machine list only displays ...

Re: Another Linux starting issue

Ok, it's definitely because of the JavaFX version. Quite strange for it to still be reported as early access despite being already way above version 8.0.48...

I'll release a minor release of Negatron for this issue tonight.

Edit: Negatron 0.99.6 available with the related fix.

Re: Another Linux starting issue

Can you download the Java exec from here and run it with the below command?

Code: Select all

java -jar JavaFXStringVersion.jar
It should open a window with a message giving 3 different version strings. Please, report them here afterwards.

Re: Another Linux starting issue

I don't have the time to do it now but, over the weekend, I'll draft a quick Java exec to see exactly what are the JDK and JavaFX versions that Java applications can see on your machine. If 1.8.202-ea is indeed the only version string that Java applications can retrieve. I'll then patch Negatron so ...

Re: Another Linux starting issue

It looks like Negatron is crashing when parsing the JavaFX version, not the JDK version. Can you check and see which JavaFX versions are installed on your system? Edit: oops, I didn't read the last lines of your last post. Yes, it's probably because of your JavaFX version. Can you try to see if ther...

Re: Another Linux starting issue

try with this command:

Code: Select all

$JAVA -version
I bet it'll return something else entirely.

Re: Another Linux starting issue

This is because you launch Negatron with an old and early access version of Java. Negatron.sh always launches Negatron with the default configured Java by using the environment variable $JAVA. And here Negatron is getting this Java version: 202-ea. Here "ea" stands for early version and this is prob...

Re: java-related trouble getting Negatron started

I had to fix other things more urgently. That's why that didn't make it to the recent release.

It's obviously still scheduled for the next one. I'll try to make it by the end of September.

Re: Negatron doesn't start anymore

Argh, this is because 4 MAME options have been removed in v0.212 and Negatron is still expecting them in mame.ini... I'll do something more robust for the next version of Negatron to avoid encountering this kind of situation in the future. The next version is planned for Sunday 18 August. Bear with ...
