AttractMode not launching Chaos Heat
« on: February 05, 2018, 01:17:30 AM »
Hi,

I'm having a peculiar problem with Chaos Heat. I have all other Taito G-Net titles working within AttractMode.

However for Chaos Heat both the English (chaosheat) and Japanese (chaosheatj) fail to launch through AttractMode, but when MAME is run stand alone it has no problem running these two CHD files.

My romlist entry looks like this, and the coh3002t file is present for the G-Net Bios:

chaosheat;Chaos Heat (V2.09O 1998/10/02 17:00);mame;;1998;Taito;Platform / Scrolling Shooter;2;0;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);imperfect;1;raster;coh3002t;;chd;

I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, or if someone with the launch working in AttractMode could share the romlist entry so I could compare and see what may be wrong with my code.

@Intron
I think, your file-name and your title in romlist differ.
Usually it's chaoshea.zip (instead chaosheat.zip).
So title should usually chaoshea (instead chaosheat)

what says console windows of AM?

That was exactly it, changing the entry to chaoshea instead of chaosheat or chaosheatj - This solved this problem.

The entry now looks like this:

chaoshea;Chaos Heat (V2.09O 1998/10/02 17:00);mame;;1998;Taito;Platform / Scrolling Shooter;2;0;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);imperfect;1;raster;coh3002t;;chd;

Thanks for the help and quick reply.
