ok guys. Here is an update. This week was supposed to be overlay week but you'all got lucky and I was able to get video previews going. Give all thanks to Nes6502 since I pretty much borrowed his modified SDK xmv playback code and changed it to work with x-port emu's.
Because of this, though. I had to make numerous changes to the x-port interface. Here is what they were.
Created a new configuration menu called "Screenshot/Movie Preview Configuration". It now contains the new Movie Preview settings as well as all the screenshot related settings that USED to be in "General Settings".
The "Screenshot/Movie Preview Configuration" is as follows.
- Show Screenshots? No, Screenshots Only, Movies Only, Screenshots 1st- Then Movies, Movies 1st- Then Screenshots.
- Play Sound From Movie? Yes, No
- Seconds before auto-advancing screenshot -
- Auto-Screenshot Capture Delay -
- Show Screenshots While Scrolling? Yes, No
These were removed from the "General Settings Menu" and I shuffled around the "General Settings Menu" to better balance things.
You can set the movie/previews directory in the "Change Default Directories" section. The default location is standard x-port emu format "E:\MOVIES\EMU_NAME".
The movie name has to be exactly the same as the ROM name. Only one movie per game.
All settings are saved in the emu_name.ini file.
I hope you all enjoy!This post has been edited by madmab: Jul 30 2008, 07:34 PM
