Beta Advanced MAME Launcher - MAME frontend for Kodi
New AML release 0.9.12

AML 0.9.12 is a quiet release. @Rychem28 helped polishing the Software List rendering options. AML supports a new infolabel for skins to display the contents of History.DAT. If you want to use it, in other words you are using a skin with support for it, you must enable this infolabel in the addon settings and rebuild the databases. I have made an option this way because the history infolabel will slow down AML a bit. Finally, parsing of recent version of History.DAT have been fixed.

Note that it will take a few days until AML 0.9.12 gets into the Kodi official addon repository and updated automatically in your Kodi box.

Upgrading AML to release 0.9.12

1) Download AML 0.9.12 from the Kodi addon repository. AML is under the categories Program add-ons and Game add-ons, Game providers.

2) Before generating the database and scanning your assets, go to Utilities and select Check AML configuration. Make sure every feature you want is OK and green, otherwise check the AML addon settings.

3) Open the context menu in any root window row, select Setup Plugin and then All in one (Extract, Build, Scan, Filters). This will extract MAME XML, rebuild all the databases, rescan ZIPs/CHDs/assets, and rebuild the custom filters.

4) In the root window, go to Utilities and select Check/Update all Favourite objects. This will bring your MAME Favourites, MAME Most Played, etc. up to date with the last version of the database. After this step completes AML is ready for use and totally updated.

5) If AML crashes after an upgrade it is very likely that the databases are not up to date. Make sure you execute steps 1) to 4) before submitting a bug report.
