Impressive work Chris, and nice to be finally to put a face to the name.

 

Looks like I will be downloading your OoeyGUI 4.0 when it is released beyond the beta testers.

Yes, it looks like something that even I can understand. How is it coming along?

There is a problem with the HORIZON RAMdisk emulation in Vn 225/226 of MAME that should be rectified in Vn 227 which comes out the end of November. I'm sure Ooeygui4 will follow shortly.

I would venture to say, that since they are two different software packages, unless OoieGUI is dependent on the Horizon working correctly, in Mame/Mess, that it shouldn't matter the order of release.

The problem is that a bug was inadvertently introduced in Vn 225 of MAME and was passed through to Vn 226. It is present in both. Using Ooeygui4, it is not possible to set up the HORIZON RAMdisk so it will work correctly in MAME in either version. Michael Zapf is aware of the problem and says it will be fixed in Vn 227 which is due out at the end of November. You can use Ooeygui4 but it will install a faulty emulation of the HORIZON.

Understood, but the GUI would still be useful without an horizon setup, and could be updated when Michael finishes his work. There is much more than the Horizon that is useful in Mame. Just my 2 cents worth.

Just finished rewriting the Horizon, it compiles again, but I'll need to do some debugging...  tomorrow. 

 

The full rewrite was not necessary, but this was the opportunity.

I need to compile the MacOS version and finish the section of the manual for the MacOS and all version will be done and i'll be getting them up on my sourceforge site.
