Update
After a long period of underground work, we finally can release a new version of GXMame. This release now uses GTK2 libraries instead of the GTK1.2 ones and has lots of other improvements. Since I didn't have much time to take care of GXMame these last months, you can thank Benoit Dumont, Priit Laes and Nicos Panayides who joined the project to make this new version possible.
In this new version, you'll find:
  • New GTK2 based GUI.
  • Columns layout is editable and sortable.
  • New tree view (clone games can be folded under original one).
  • Added a button to suppress a specific game option.
  • Simplified Chinese translation added.
  • Fixes to bugs and memory leaks: see the Changelog.
  • Added a Greek translation(not complete).
Get this new version at the Downloads Page.

Update
GXMame 0.32 is out, this is mainly a bugfix and contributor patches release, it's working with X-Mame (0.66.x).
  • Change some options to works with Xmame-0.66.x (but I kept a backward compatibility so you shouldn't have problems with older version of xmame).
  • Added skip disclaimer and gameinfo options.
  • Add a support for different keyboard layout.
  • Added support for catver.ini file from www.catver.com.
  • Unzipped icons are working now.
  • Bug fixes and code cleanup: see the Changelog.

Nota
Since I received lot of patches for the gamma and brightness options, most of them were the same, so it's a good to send patches on the Project Page or directly to the Patches page so other users will know that this patch had already been submited and will be able to use it or improve it.

Website
Since Netscape wasn't able to support correctly the CSS layout, I tweaked my scripts and now Netscape4.x users should be able to see the site almost correctly. To do that, I was forced to broke some XHTML/CSS Standard (only for Netscape users)
I don't think I'll maintain a bad html version of my site so you may want to change to Mozilla, Konqueror, Netscape 6.x, Opera or any browser displaying CSS.
Documentation
Finally add an html documentation for GXMame, some parts are taken from original Mame,XMame or Mame32 documentations mostly because I didn't know how to explain some options that I never use.
I you find any errors, typo or want to add something, feel free to .
