Description

Hi there!

I just wanna mention that my ultimate emulator wrapper called emuexec is now avaible as a single package!

The benefits for mythtv and especially mythgame are not so easy to find:

At first look at emuexec:

EmuExec? is now a standalone package and desktop independent. EmuExec? acts as a configuration wrapper between all emulators and adds many nice features like fullscreen emulation, 12 decompression formats , automatic screenshots or rom-image identification to any emulator, .........

Configure once - use it everywhere! : http://kde-apps.org/content/pre1/14115-1.jpg

E.g. Set all settings in one file and every emulator has the same behaviour and all options right set. Even some more advanced options for xmess,xmame,wine,dosbox and qemu are available.

But for mythgame, the most interesting thing is the emulation-table. All config generators use this stucture to build up the menu. It detects if emulator, rom- and screenshot directory are available and automagically generates the configuration. confgen-mythtv even uses the frontend-settings to insert the generated SQL-Statements into your database - so back it up before! With the default settings, everything should work out of the box with no configuration stress for the end-user. Even for the automatic screenshots, emuexec handles everything automatically. Very interesting is the auto-download of mame-artwork-images for the started romset. But for now it should be enough there would be sooooo much to mention - so just look. Download emuexec, or better download kdeaddons-emulation too - for the best emulation desktop you can get !

If you wanna know more - just ask here or use http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=14115

PS: Wait for the next release emuexec 1.2, and see this as preview. But in general - its fully usable.

PPS: May I ask questings too here :) ? - Having more idears but need some code and info!

EmuExec? Version 1.2 with many bugfixes and updates is out this weekend! So stay tuned and check it out then.

I only have to add a few decompression formats and review all general features.

After that I will announce it here and on the mythtv/freevo mailing lists!
