OK, i will add a checkbox to the end of the installer so you can set qcma to run at windows startup.

While you are at it, can you "un-grey" the "automatically refresh database" checkbox, if it is working in thr first place?

Until the next release comes up though, you can place a shortcut to qcma in Start Menu/Startup. Anything placed there is booted on Windows launch (unless they've changed that behaviour since 98 and XP).

That refers to monitoring for changes and updating the database, not the sqlite database backend, which is already done. (If I understood the changelogs correctly, that is.)
From what I see, QFileSystemWatcher is still a mess even in Qt5.2. Not sure how codestation is thinking of implementing this feature. Correction: is a mess on *BSD and OSX 10.4, others should be okay. Proabably have the option disabled by default on those systems.

QCMA - Cross-platform content manager for the PSVita (0.3.2)

Post by The Z »

The path for adding shortcuts to autostart is the following:

C:\Users\"Your Username"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

At least at my Win7 OS.


Edit: The thread is 47 pages long, and the readme/FAQ did not cover this, so I will just ask.

How does one manually update the firmware via QCMA? Simply putting the psp2-updatelist.xml inside of the QCMA-Update folder does not work, the Vita shows an error.

If qcma is running in offline mode, it will use the internal psp2-updatelist.xml (you can see it here: https://github.com/codestation/qcma/blo ... telist.xml)
If it's running in online mode, it will attempt to retrieve the Sony psp2-updatelist.xml.

This still does not answer my question if/where I have to put my local xml file, to decide what to download.

The database backend is almost done, i just have to find a way to implement the music listing per genre/author/album correctly (and photos per month). About file monitoring, QFileSystemWatcher seems limited since i have to add every subdirectory of the category to the filter. I will give a try to this api to see if it works to my needs.

So to make an update to a specific version just put the xml + pup file in the update folder, qcma will do the rest when the vita requests an update via usb.

Filtering photos per month? D-does anyone even do such a thing? o.O

Huh, didn't know that. Entry tagged. Categorized. Recorded.
Also, about the random python scripts, generalized them a bit further and pushed them here.

So I can not specify that it should download the files from a server (instead of the PCs HDD) and the firmware that should be displayed at the PS Vita (e.g. version 1.234), like it is possible via OpenCMA?

Nevermind, got it.

Ive used this file (replaced 0.00 with 3.16, and I got this xD). Additionally, Ive placed the (release) .PUP file next to the XML file and now it works.

A bit weird, but okay.
