28th May, 2018 - GameEx 15.30

GameEx and GameEx Arcade Edition 15.30 released.

  • Create snaps and video screen recording has been rewritten. Video capture now records in mp4 format and external driver and software capture methods are supported. There is a new section in the setup wizard for video recording. Geforce experience has been tested to be working. It is also much more responsive to cancelling the process and ffmpeg.exe is required to use this feature now.
  • Creating video snaps is no longer a registered version feature.

  • Several input issues were fixed

26th March, 2018 - GameEx 15.20

This release is a significant update to GameEx and GameEx arcade edition but involves work mainly on the back end. There are also too many fixes to mention in this release but the original purpose of it was to upgrade the DirectX library from managed DirectX to SlimDX. In addition all video rendering is now GPU hardware accelerated. This all provides significant stability and performance improvements, especially on older hardware. On newer hardware 4k 60fps video previews are no issue at all.

There is also a fixed and improved GameLauncher mode and the background snap theme and mode is working as expected again.

Again, there are many fixes in and minor improvements in this release. You may find some issues you had fixed and because the changes are so substantial I will provide the previous releases in case I missed something in my regression testing.

11th November, 2017 - Big seasonal updates

Introducing PinballX 2.50, GameEx and GameEx Arcade Edition 15.00

Big updates for the season.

These are mainly performance improvement related releases with general optimizations to key functions as well as rendering and the executable compiles.

This should hopefully result in better FPS and speed improvements throughout although obviously it will be more noticeable on lower end machines.

With GameEx several other areas have been improved for performance such as the Jukebox, loading Game Info, the Movie Library and getting Meta Data.

In addition the YouTube feature is now working again and the Move Library has been improved significantly. Getting Meta Data for the movie library is now much quicker to and downloading music artist and album images is working again.

I also made the decision to make the Media Library and DVD/BluRays on disk features free for all users and no longer a registered version feature.

I am toying with the idea of releasing a sub version of GameEx without gaming features, purely as a free HTPC solution. Please let me know your thoughts on this.

In preparation for the season I, and behalf of all of my loyal team and friends who work alongside me wish you all the best, happy thanksgiving, happy Hanukkah, Eid, Kwanzaa and Merry Christmas!.

6th September, 2017 - GameEx 14.90

A major new feature for developers in this release. Introducing AddIns.

Addins allow you to programmatically create your own modules (lists and menus) and play, list and launch anything..

You can for example create your own video or multimedia modules somewhat similar to how some Kodi AddOns work.

It's not overly complicated to get started and there is a full example available here.

They are also now part of the official GameEx repository.

I am happy to answer any questions.
