Which launcher?
Does this launcher support commandline parameters to start a game directly?

It's necessary to start Hackmii, to install the Homebrew Channel this way:

a special game & a savegame exploit (old method; not longer necessary) or via wii pinboard exploit (letterbomb, bannerbomb, wilbrand) and WII MAC address.

there is a tool called UHG Downloader, to get the whole packet automatically (wii cios and so on).

After install homebrew channel, you are able to start homebrew like Wiiflow.

Wiiflow need a Plugin Packet.

Never tried to install linux directly

@ Joe737
windows and commandline got problems with spaces in folder and filenames.
Are you able to start game directly from commandline?
Code: [Select]
"C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Desktop\mame121b\mame.exe" "C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Desktop\mame121b\roms\"
Probably this works to you:
Code: [Select]
executable           "C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Desktop\mame121b\mame.exe"
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              "C:\Documents and Settings\Joe\Desktop\mame121b\roms"
Generate the romlist again

@ zlagos
risk of virus attack becomes smaller when data are outsourced? Not really. Sorry ^-^
With a simple dos commandline command you see all connected drive letters. and this is a easy peasy stupid dos command.
a simple virus or an encryption trojan is more powerful and complex. so this will be checked certainly too ^-^
Code: [Select]
wmic volume get driveletter

@ mxstar1
you didn't ask my answer in post#3.
Is there a file on CD, or the name of inserted CD, thats matching to the game ID?
Check => tell us (I do not have a Sega Mega CD; so I can not test it).

Finally figured out, how it works on Windows.

Maybe this is helpful to anybody who wants Multiple Monitors / Multi Displays / extended screen view for artwork / show marquee on second 2nd screen:
Tested on :
AM version 2.3 (WinXP, Win7, Win10) 
AM version 2.4 (Windows 7, Windows 10)

>this is my setup:

>settings in Windows:
-two displays (windows is set to extended view)
first display : Windows primary screen; shows AM
second display : extended; shows marquee artwork

>settings in AM:
start AM > press TAB key > General > Window Mode > set to 'Fillscreen (Default)' or 'Fullscreen Mode'

start AM > press TAB key > General > Enable Multiple Monitors : Yes

start AM > press TAB key > Plug-Ins > MultiMon : Enabled

if something is wrong/not correct with your cable installation, you only see this window (maybe your cable is broken => check):

if everything is wired correct, you see more options. In my case I've chosen marquee artwork for second display:

>other layouts:
works with the standard layouts and own/user layouts too.
Tested with
cockpit theme

Tested on Windows 7 and Windows 10.
x86 and x64.
Works perfect.

short info:
version 2.4 doesn't longer supports native Windows XP/WinXP.
shows different missing .dll errors / .dll files not found
If you're using WinXP use still up to version 2.3 or look for special and seperate version of AM 2.4 for WinXP:
x86 / 32 bit here
x64 / 64 bit here

There is a list of game IDs for Sega CD.
But I do not have Sega Mega CD.
Maybe there is a file on CD or CD-Name match to this ID?

@ pibuilder
You're using an RPI?
I'm using a Windows System. But I think it's the same steps:

start AM > press TAB key > choose your displayname of mame (in my case : mame) > on 'Info Source/Scraper' choose : listxml > Generate Collection/Rom List

After this, I've got the correct names (instead of filenames)

And here are my display settings of emulator system mame

@ informix
You mean the Mame UI (after launching mame.exe). Probably, here is a correct explanation

your settings seems correct

I'm using zsnes for SNES

Generate your Collection/Rom List again:
start AM > press TAB > Emulators > Your Emulator > Generate Collection/Rom List > try starting a romfile

if not:
Download console version of AM from here > unzip > rename the attract.exe to attract_console.exe > copy this attract_console.exe to your AM folder > start it > start your romfile > you see any errors in command window

please do not quote complete posts.

this should do it:
Code: [Select]
#include <Timers.au3>


$starttime = _Timer_Init()
While _Timer_Diff($starttime) < 20000; 20 sec => 20 sec * 1000 ms => 20000 ms

General / Re: Starting Fusion 364 over Attract Mode
« on: May 22, 2018, 01:01:15 AM »
this is my config to start genesis romfiles via fusion:
Code: [Select]
executable           C:\attract\EMU\Fusion364\Fusion.exe
args                 "[romfilename]" -gen -auto -fullscreen
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\Fusion364\roms
romext               .bin;.gen

Fusion supports another systems/consoles like 32x

or you just leave system:
Code: [Select]
executable           C:\attract\EMU\Fusion364\Fusion.exe
args                 "[romfilename]" -auto -fullscreen
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\Fusion364\roms
romext               .bin;.gen

I'm not using Retroarch. So I can't help 100%.

After starting retroarch.exe and aut3info.exe of autoit:
retroarch starts a window without any visible text (so cell of visible text of au3info is empty).

so you need to add a delay (sleep command).
the F11 key disable the mouse cursor, right?

so this should do it:
Code: [Select]
