1st!  I continue to love and use OoeyGUI.   @Shift838 , you've done a wonderful job on this!

 

Now a question (feature request?):  In the setup, we can select where our Diskette directory is located.  That works fine.

If I have subfolders in the directory with sorted files, I don't seem to be able to load them.  I can select them.  However, OG only reads the root.  I can easily work around this, but wonder if this is normal?  (If it is a bug then I missed this during beta 😲 )

do you mean if you OoeyGui disks directory is configured as '/ooeygui/disks and you have a disk image called 'test.dsk' say in '/disks/mydisks' the disk image does not load from the sub-directory 'mydisks' ?

 

I also forget, which OS Platform are you running it on?

Exactly.  Running on Raspberry Pi 4.

Has anyone been successful recently in downloading Ooeygui V 4.01 from Sourceforge? I have tried several times and all that I get is a series of pop-up ads before the download stops (actually before it even starts). The alternative download sites don't work either.

@arcadeshopperhas suggested to have a demonstration via a the Zoom meeting.  I think that is a great idea.  Lets get it set up.

 

Enjoy!

 

I don't recall if this happened, but there is nothing to setup. Just join, butt-in and offer to demostrate.

In post #1, the manual link is to the windows archive for version 4.0.2. The windows link is to the windows archive for version 4.0.1. 

 

Is there a manual link that is not the entire thing again for windows? 

 

Or does 'manual' mean not automated in this context?

I fixed the links.  Manual is just for the manual.  I must have clicked it by accident and replaced the link somehow.

Thank you for the new version. It's working fine, except I haven't been able to load any config - the program just shuts down when I try.

I find 'load config' confusing too... given there is a 'select system to load' that is a drop down list of the configs...  loading a config core dumps for me.

 

ooeygui.py: line 1067 _butloadcfg, NoneType has no attribute 'text'

 

-- I have succeeded with download and install of mame... I probably need to read the entire manual now... Picking a cartridge fails cause it let me navigate to a different directory to find my FCMD.RPK, and then didn't pass a fully qualified pathname to mame.

Mame requires the carts to be in the rompath

That isn't 100% true. RPK's are left over for bespoke carts, or so I've read, and practiced, such as when I'm developing.. and fully qualified paths for RPK's work from the command line.

If that were 100% then my suggestion would be that ooeygui not allow navigation in the file picker.

RPK cartridge files are referenced by their path name (=path+filename). The path name may be freely chosen, wherever you have access to. Thus, RPKs may be picked in a file dialog.

 

ZIP cartridges are referenced by their program name. This name is hard coded inside the hash/ti99_cart.xml file and should not be changed. The ROMs for the program are searched by the core ROM loader within the ROMPATH as <programname>.zip. You can get a list of available programs by invoking MAME as follows:

 

mame64 -getsoftlist ti99_cart


This is the full xml file; you may want to look for "<software name=", e.g.

 

./mame64 -getsoftlist ti99_cart | grep "<software name=" | sed "s/^.*=//" | sed "s/>//"

This was originally put in before I had the drop down list of the favorites.  This probably should be removed to mitigate any confusion.  I do see there error you stated above as well.  so as i fix it, i will remove the buttons and only allow the populated combo box that populates from your /favorites folder within the Ooeygui root directory.

The way that OoeyGUI is designed as of 4.0 is that all carts (.rpk and .zip) should be within the /carts directory within the MAME folder.  all this is saved in the ooeygui.xml file for paths and executables.  In order to select a cartridge a user must browse to it with the 'file picker' in order to pass the appropriate commands to mame.  I purposely pull the folder path from the xml configuration file for ooeygui in order to be able to have the logic to know if it is a rpk or .zip file so that OoeyGUI passes the correct arguments to MAME.

 

I cannot remove the ability once in the file dialog for a user to move through their directory structure as that is inherited by the OS. 

 

Once ooeygui is configured though when opening the file dialog option the file open dialog will open from the current OoeyGUI directory configuration for 'carts' or 'disks' as saved in the ooeygui.xml file.

It would be great to be able to pick .rpk files from any directory, so you don't have to copy each new version into the carts directory. As mizapf wrote, all you need to do is to provide the full path to MAME.
