Apologies for the 'radiosilence' these past few months; I've had some very important things to attend to, and I really needed some time-off from DBGL after 10 years(!).
With that out of the way, here's a new test build for your pleasure, 0.80c, with the following changes:
* Fix for thumb/file order on Windows platform (marquisor)
* More accurately determine linux desktop folder for shortcuts (Giorgos)
* Fixed crash-bug as reported by Neville regarding deletion of thumb images
* Always scale thumb to max dimensions fitting in the clientarea (display resolution), and auto center thumb dialog
* Show program version in about dialog (Giorgos)
* Spanish translation update from Neville
* French translation update by max buttjer
* Updated SWT to 4.6.1
All the latest files
To upgrade, grab the dbgl.jar as usual.
@extracampine: regarding the image quality of the downloaded box-art: DBGL simply downloads the files as they are available on MobyGames, so unless there's also higher-quality images available there, I'm afraid there's nothing that can be done.
@RetroFAN: Sure I can add more custom fields, but can you explain why, what it is that you're trying to achieve? I ask because you're saying 'at least' which suggests even more fields. If I'm adding these fields, I'd rather add them all at once.
About the scraper for the 'A.K.A.' search problems at MobyGames; Surely similar scraping can be performed by DBGL, but I think you're forgetting something here. What you're doing is scraping the details page (Rap Sheet) of a single game. Image what would be required to get all AKA names for all games when searching for 'DOOM' for example. That would mean dozens of page requests to MobyGames, just to get the search results (instead of just one, or a few). Thus, I think this would not be a good solution for reasons of performance/scalability.
@Serious Callers Only: Sorry, I only understand half of what you're doing here, I know next to nothing about this unionfs-fuse stuff. So I can only refer to my previous response; patches are welcome.
Finally, I would like to thank all the people that have shared their DOSBox configuration settings in the DBConfWS database. I must admit that I'm a bit behind with the moderation, but fully intend to keep this thing going.
