Changelog:

Changes:
- Lots of work was done to reduce the number of crashes that came with the last few builds.
- Fixed crash when selecting a new background (even when you hit Cancel)
- Fixed crash when unexpected data was found in mameui.ini and mame_g.ini
- Fixed problem where the last machine you had chosen wasn't remembered
- Fixed problem where it didn't remember which software tab you had chosen
- Fixed problem with splitters going crazy when trying to adjust window sizes
- Fixed problem with hide/unhide of the software area not synchronised with the setting
- The new default window size is to fill most of the screen - whatever size it is.
- You can right-click on a game and play the AntoPisa movie mp4 on your default mp4 program
- You can right-click on a game and open the PDF with your default PDF reader program
- 10 of the treeview folders (BIOS, CPU, Dumping, Manufacturer, Refresh, Resolution, Screen, Sound, Source and Year) have been made external. MAMEUI will refresh them as part of the caching process. They are stored in the folders directory.


Note:
- Unable to replicate a reported problem where softlists wouldn't show
- Unable to replicate a reported problem with fullscreen
- The new external folders (ini files) can be used as extra filters in MAME's internal UI.
- If weird stuff happens on the first run of 0.190, try deleting mame_g.ini
- On the first run, it may take up to 20 seconds to build the cache. On subsequent runs it should start almost instantly.

How come some games are displaying with a yellow "stick of butter" icon instead of the usual green/light green/red squares?

I asked my cat what the meaning of life was... he noserized me and stuck his butt in my face.

It's a yellow IC, and it indicates imperfect emulation.

What's the name of the external *.ico for that state? And is there another *.ico for a clone of the parent in that state?

This makes a very noticeable change in startup time! Thanks for the improvements!



Remember a couple of years ago when a guy was using a Perl script to generate these? It never got included I guess because the files were not generated by MAMEUI. It also made startup very fast.

BTW, how does this work? What triggers new ini files to be made?

When the total number of games changes.

Or if you want to force it, alter the number in line 1 of mame_g.ini, then start MAMEUI.

\icons\win_imp.ico doesn't appear to be utilized when I dropped it in.
