Important Release Notes

** This MedLaunch release is ONLY compatible with version 0.9.42.x of Mednafen. Do NOT upgrade if you are not planning to update Mednafen also **

This is primarily a bugfix release.

If you are seeing MedLaunch crash whilst opening please either:

  • Extract this version of MedLaunch to a new folder and run it

or

  • Extract this version over your current MedLaunch folder, then delete MedLaunch.db from MedlaunchDIR\Data\Settings before running the application

Otherwise follow the usual instructions below.

Notable Additions

  • ** Only compatible with version 0.9.42.x of Mednafen (although 0.9.41 will probably still launch games) **
  • (Bugfix) Fixed exception(crash) caused by mednafen application not being properly initialised before importing configs into MedLaunch
  • (Bugfix) Added null-check on netplay servers datagrid (mitigates application exception if the database didnt initialise correctly with the pre-defined servers)
  • (Bugfix) Fixed localisation lookup issue when attempting to determine the mednafen version from the mednafen output log (stdout.txt)
  • (Addition) Added another public netplay server to the list

New Install

  • Extract this release to a folder, run the 'MedLaunch.exe' executable and choose your Mednafen directory (must be the Mednafen 0.9.42.x branch - 64-bit version is required if you want to emulate Saturn games).
  • You are then prompted to choose whether to import all config settings from your Mednafen folder into the MedLaunch database (this is recommended).
  • If you currently use system-specific config files with Mednafen the settings from these will be imported with the above process. However MedLaunch will write to these files when you launch a game - so back them up somewhere if you are not happy with this.

Upgrade

Preferred Method:
  • Automatically download and upgrade using the 'Updates' tab within MedLaunch itself.
  • Ensure you have the correct version of Mednafen installed (v0.9.42.x)
  • Once MedLaunch has upgraded, go to the 'Configs' tab and click the 'IMPORT ALL CONFIGS FROM DISK' button
  • In settings change your mednafen directory if you installed the new version of mednafen somewhere else
Manual Method:
  • You can safely extract this new release over an existing MedLaunch folder (providing you do not have MedLaunch running at the time)
  • Once extracted run the MedLaunch.exe executable and your current database will be upgraded before the application starts proper.
  • Once MedLaunch has upgraded, go to the 'Configs' tab and click the 'IMPORT ALL CONFIGS FROM DISK' button
  • In settings change your mednafen directory if you installed the new version of mednafen somewhere else
