10.11-beta-1 Released

Recommended Posts

@Jason Carr

I am having EmuMovies connection issues with the only cabinet in the house on the latest beta. The other machines are either on stable or beta 7 and are able to connect just fine.

EDIT:

Scratch that Jason. I reverted this machine to prior beta and Emu worked. Reinstalled latest beta and it works. I doubt it is LB related. Probably something stupid on this machine.

@lockian It is possible that the SSL version change I made for beta 9 is some how messing with EmuMovies, but I can't replicate it, so I'm not sure. Can you test this again to see if it could have been a fluke or a temporary issue? What version of Windows are you running?

Also, I still need confirmation if beta 9 actually did fix the Steam metadata not downloading issue that @Belmont and @Pixel (and others) were seeing.

I was planning on putting out the release today, but it looks like we may have to delay it until tomorrow to confirm that the Steam connectivity issues are fixed, and that we don't have any further connectivity issues elsewhere as a result of the SSL version change.

Last beta seems to have fixed it for me.

Thanks for reporting that @Retro808; here's the thing though, I'm still skeptical, and I'm betting that you were seeing the same issue as @lockian. Whatever the issue is, it appears to be sporadic, so you probably did see a legitimate issue. What was the exact error message? Any chance you can do some more testing to see if you can reproduce it again? If so, if you can enable debug logging that would be awesome.

I just put out beta 10 with some additional debug logging for connection issues. I would appreciate it if anyone who has previously experienced any connection issues with Steam imports or EmuMovies downloads could do some significant testing with this release and provide me with the debug log (turn on debug logging first of course, under Tools > Options > Debugging).

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. Hoping we can get a release out tomorrow, but first we definitely need to figure this stuff out so that we're not bitten by it with the official release. :)

@Jason Carr It was just giving an error it was unable to log in. I will keep tinkering on this machine and on another to see if I can get the issue again.

Beta 11 is out now to fix a minor bug that @faeran brought to my attention with the new custom images for Big Box theme developers. Sorry for piece-mailing these betas.

Nothing has changed in this beta vs. beta 10 when it comes to the Steam/EmuMovies connectivity issues; we still need as much testing as possible on that. :)

Hey guys, 

I just wanted to let you guys know about a particular GOG game that's having trouble getting the right metadata and poster. Quest for Glory 1 and 4 both use the Quest for Glory 1 poster and are labelled as Quest for Glory 4 1/2. Is there any way for that to be fixed?

Thanks to @lockian's log that he sent me, I believe I was able to get the issue with EmuMovies fixed. We were using an old EmuMovies DLL that was compiled against .NET 2.0, which apparently has issues on some systems when using TLS (unless there's a certain Windows update installed). I've integrated the code instead so that it all runs on .NET 4.7.2, which should hopefully fix that particular issue.

I do still have a report from @dustdancer, however, that beta 9 broke Steam imports, which I also need to figure out. Details here:

Ugh, so this has been a bit of a nightmare. I blame Microsoft. ;)

Beta 13 is out now, with yet another round of hopeful fixes for the various connectivity issues. I was finally able to replicate the issues, and they seem to have gone away now, so hopefully this one will do the trick.

I really appreciate all the testing, guys. If you can beat this one up as well, I'd be grateful.

Hey @Jason Carr

It crashed after downloading all of the metadata etc again.  Did not get a crash error, program just stopped responding and forced me to close it.  I just wanted to advise that I do have a very large collection as well (Approximately 14000 roms). So I'm unsure if that would be taken into account that it is crashing like that with all of the information it would've scrapped.

If you're closing it yourself, it may have just been busy. Did that happen at the end of the process?

So I just downloaded 10.11 and there is no Badge menu at the top right. What am I missing?

EDIT: It's because I'm using a custom theme, right?

Correct. If using a custom theme the creator needs to push an update with the badge changes included.

@Jason Carr or @C-Beats I just noticed an issue with the new default theme on 10.11 that when you drag the games list slider bar the games list box view does not scroll. The details slider bar does however. I also tested other LB themes like Old Default and Cranky Ape and the games list slider bar works as normal when you drag it and it scrolls through the list of games.

I actually did that on purpose for the new theme, because it doesn't exactly scroll smoothly due to the dynamic box sizing. It did work previously, it was just fairly jarring and jumpy. I just prefer it this way to avoid that stuff. I maybe should re-enable it though when dynamic box sizing is off (assuming I don't do that already).
