First of all let me wish every Mecca member a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Here is the next release of MFME, I have named it v6.0 due to the number of changes/fixes it contains.
To install just unpack the contents of either the win7/10 or XP rar file to a home folder, something like c:\MFMEv6.0 etc
This version relies on having the DefaultSounds and DefaultMasks in the same folder as MFME itself rather than the game folder like the previous versions.
There is a changelist included which I think covers all the important stuff, there may be additional changes that I forgot to include.
In this release when you load a game, it will always open the notes file ( if it's not empty ) and also an optional bmp image, just press space to dismiss them.
I have included an option to "Publish layout" which will lock the Caption and Notes in the .fml file and prevent any further editing, so be sure to save a copy for yourself before commiting.
Also bare in mind this release will *not* load .dat files, so use v5.1 to save any layouts still in the old .dat format to the .fml format.
If you are installing MFME for the first time, please make sure to also install the DirectX runtime (June 2010) from here:
