PfeMAME - MAME Frontend Update Released
pfeMAME version 0.997 has been released
pfeMAME is a cross platform front end for MAME that has been written in python(wx). Pre-compiled executables for Windows and Linux are available, as well as the python source code.
pfeMAME is designed to work on standard desktops, but also MAME Cabinets through a 'tile' view interface.
It's been a long time with any updates but this release brings many changes and bug fixes. I'm heading toward the version 1.0 release as soon as possible. As per usual, please provide feedback on pfeMAME, including bug reports or requested features. Please read the manual on the downloads page as it usually answers many of the questions.

When you select a different view from the drop down list, and search text in the search input box is deleted as the search is reset anyway
Removed 'memcard' from the file paths window as it is no longer used by MAME (I had previously released a quickfix by dumping it from the command line but still had to delete it completely.
Fixed the incorrect naming of variables in the [driver].ini files (INI path). This was causing INI file read errors from being reported in the 'Messages' window after running games. NOTE: YOU NEED TO DELETE YOUR INI FILES IN THE 'INI' FOLDER AND RESET ANY GAME SPECIFIC PREFERENCES FROM STOPPING THIS ERROR FROM POPPING UP IN FUTURE - SORRY FOR THE PAIN.
Cosmetic changes in the Preferences window
Moved an asterisk to better location for readability

Remaining Site Issues
This is going to be a running list of the site problems until it's all fixed, reply with whatever is missing or fixed and I'll keep it updated. Replies will eventually be deleted to keep the board clean.
Last edit: Jan. 23
-Admin/Show Admin Log (admin only logs that keep track of important things) gives a message of "Admin logging has not been setup properly"; there may be other admin options unavailable as well. Database backup/restore also appears to not be setup properly but that may be by admin design?
- Still a lot of subdomain issues (see below) [Below sub-domain issues still exist, but front-page has at least been updated, so users can navigate properly]
