Archive support! Works with .rar, .zip, and .arj. You can have as many games
as you want inside that archive as well.. and no restrictions on the NAME of the
game or the name of the archive. :) Hmm.. sounds pretty nice huh.
Lets see.. what else.. well, it's fully ZSNES .393 compliant. All commands have been implemented.
All sorts of minor improvements... this should be a very worth the wait release.
As if March 7, 1998
Working on Archive Support... So far? Well, we can extract your games from
.arj, .zip, and .rar, and probably a few other formats.
We are working on an interface.. directly within the FE window.
Hmm.. somthing to do with VESA... no more is to be known at this time...
Umm.. let's see.. QuickRun buttons (Unlike QuickRom from other emu) will be compatible with all archive types.
Next.. well, have you ever heard of a FE that will grab a screen shot for you? Neither have I! But we will see one soon....
Anything else you ask? Of course! But if I told you everything, you wouldn't be surprised when the next release came about!
e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to see any other features included.. and also, PLEASE mail me, to tell me what you think of it.. I NEED FEEDBACK!
Download the latest version of Ze' Front End here.
Download the Executable and Configuration file here. Overwrite this in the ZeFrontEnd directory, if you allready ran a full install of the previous version.
Update 25K 1.0.17
Full Install.. for those who havn't had a chance to play with ZeFrontEnd yet!
Full Install (1.99 megs) 1.0.17
Version 1.0.17 is out! Many improvements were made!
Buttons now read "empty" at start. If no file is selected for the button,
it becomes disabled.
Added support for almost all new functions added to the config file in release .270.
A small bug was squashed, when you tried to load a game after setting a quick run button. It would bring up the selection screen twice for some strange reason. Oh well, fixed now.
Fixed a BIG bug, where depending on the path you last selected a ROM in.. it wouldn't use your settings, as it would load ZSNES from a differant path, making ZSNES thing that the .cfg file wasn't there, therefore making the default one instead! Now that works!
What to expect in future release?
for at least .zip files, and hopefully .arj and .rar.
Reading in ROM size, Type, and Country and the rest of the stuff you don't care to know..<grin>
Possible support for SNeSe?... This we've been toying around with...
Keyboard settings will be enhanced, to act more like UZI. I like that interface..but still can't figure it out..hehe.
Individual rom settings. If you like to tweak your settings based on a specific rom.
Version 1.0.13 is out! Many improvements were made!
that bug "Error 53" at startup. Should ask for path if it is invalid.
Added support for reading ROM headers. To give you titles of the game.
Added Quick Button Support... so you can specify 8 of your favorite games for 1 button access!
Now reads in all ZSNES.cfg options.. and will support the latest ones in the next release.
Quick Run Buttons now extract ROM title from the file, and display the name on the button.
Fixed up code, so it doesn't use VARIANT variables (16 bytes of mem!) And, converted many controls, to control arrays, (less lines of code, as loops are used) and converted most arrays to dynamic, to save mem in the end.
Lots of little things, that just make it work better!
