MaLa ist ein Multi Frontend für 32bit Windows Betriebssysteme wie Win98, WinME, Win2000 und WinXP. Es unterstützt die command line Version von MAME mit XML ROM Info und von anderen Emulatoren wie VICE, Kega Fusion, FCE Ultra - NES, VisualBoyAdvance und ZiNc u.s.w.

MaLa is a MAME and more launcher for 32bit Windows operating systems like Win98, WinME, Win2000 and WinXP. It supports the windows command line version of MAME with XML ROM info and other emulators like VICE, Kega Fusion, FCE Ultra - NES, VisualBoyAdvance and ZiNc to name a few.

What´s new?
• Smooth display fade out/fade in when switching the layout (emulator/gamelist/orientation switch, MaLa start and quit).
• Command line arguments of LNK files are now recognized for proper execution of pc games or other apps.
• Screensaver enhancements: Send plugin event only, use snap and video path of selected gamelist/emulator for the screensaver display.
• Ability to use a watermark image on the videos in the screensaver for every emulator/video folder.
• Placeholder for the external application command line: rom path, rom name, rom parent name, rom extension and emu name (%path%, %rom%, %parent%, %ext%, %emu%).
• Different command lines for the external applications for MAME, other emus and the jukebox.
• Ability to configure the info window. Add/remove pages, reorder pages, edit page title.
• Additional MAME command line parameter added to the cocktail mapping.
• New placeholder ~g_capital added to the layout text objects which shows the first two letters of the game name (good for fast scrolling).
• Option to replace the right mouse button for opening the popup menu/options dialog with a definable keystroke. This disables the right mouse button in MaLa.
• Joystick polling is not disabled anymore when no joystick is connected. Automatic recallibration when a joystick is plugged again.
• New plugin event: MaLaOrientationSwitch. This event provides the orientation of MaLa in degrees (0, 90, 180, 270).
• New plugin event: MaLaScreensaverSwitch. This event provides the the full path of the displayed image/video of the screensaver.
• New plugin events: MaLaTreeUp and MaLaTreeDown. This event is triggered when using a tree navigation.
• New frontend sound: Tree Up/Down.
• Added messages next to the events in the Plugin SDK which makes it possible to trigger things within MaLa from a plugin dll or another application. Please refer to the SDK documentation to get more information on this.

• Crash on displaying the recommended games in the info dialog for some games fixed.
• The video display now works flawless. No stuttering anymore in the layout and the starting video.
• MalaLayout: Marquee and control panel default image not saved in layout file.
• Wrong text size for the Info window lines. Menu text size was used.
• Fixed the annoying ´Soundcard installation is corrupted´ bug.

A complete list of all changes since the first public release can be viewed here.
