New update to romcenter 4.2

Hi all, some news.

Dev is going nicely and I now have a full 64b version (but still in .net 4.0).
I have started to rewrite some plugin written in c/c++ by other people, and they can now be built in 64b. I have to make romcenter able to load 'managed plugin' written in c#.
This is now done and a7800, gameboy, nes and sega md are already available here on github: https://github.com/ebolefeysot/RomcenterPlugins
I also added unif and nes2 format recognition to nes plugin.

Romcenter have two new options right now: one to use extension provided by the plugin (real rom extension) when renaming rom, and another to make 'no dump' roms act like available roms.

When the ‘no dump green’ option is checked, the file is green, despite the missing ‘no dump’ rom:

When unchecked, file is yellow and need fix:

If you check the plugin extension usage, roms are renamed with the real extension:

When unchecked, extension is taken from the datafile, and is unique for one given game:

I still have some work to do before releasing a new version. The main thing is to finish plugin rewrite in 64b.

That's all for now, see you soon.

Is MAME software list support (-listsoftware command) also planned?
I'm missing this in current romcenter. Other rom managers I really dont like (bad GUI and not user friendly as romcenter!). So I would love this added in romcenter.

I was also wondering if a search textbox could be added. This could be used to filter the games in case we only want to select games that contain a certain text string and we only want to fix those (not the whole collection of mame or a dat file).
After searching, romcenter could auto select all found games in the current mame/dat file games list loaded in romcenter and we then can fix only those.
This can be used to fix games we play the most. We can repeat searching to fix other search results.

What do you think of this feature, Eric? :)
