Custom game ini
#360629 - 11/26/16 12:30 PM


Hi

EL 8.2.8 - I've set one up for a specific game in EL and the ini file has been placed in \ini. Fine.

However if you attempt to delete the game specific ini in EL (right click>custom settings>delete, the file remains.

What gamename is it ?
What MAME version are you using ?

, it means EL can find the find to delete.
Before displaying the games popup menu, EL searches for the gamename.ini file in mamedir\ini\ folder (or whatever folder you have in mame.ini) and if the file is found, the option to delete the .ini file appears in the popup menu.

If the menu option doesn't appear there, it means EL could not find the gamename.ini.

1. EL 8.2.8
2. Galaxian.ini
3. Right click>custom settings>set>OK - places galaxian.ini in my ini folder
4. Delete option now available following same, but selecting delete does not remove galaxian.ini from the ini folder

I think I see what's going on. Since the driver name is the same as the game name, there are two Delete "gamename.ini" entries in the popup menu.
Make sure to select the first one that appears in the popup menu. I'll fix this problem in the next release.

Yes you are correct. I was blind to the first entry.

I found another bug. If you try to create a custom driver settings, EL will create a weird filename, resulting in frontend crash.

EL supports source .ini files only in mame_inidir\source\ sub-folder, unless the MAME build is lower than v0.118.
source .ini files in mame_inidir\ folder is no longer supported by the frontend... Why ? because you can have gamename = drivername and many games in MAME are like this.

I'll fix this bug tonight and post a new build by tomorrow (no time to do it today).
