Another possible solution... this works on Win 10 and I imagine Win 7 as well.

I have one AHK script that launches everything I need to have running at startup: it starts up my control panel (I-PAC 4) with the appropriate profile, it sets 320x240 resolution for CRT and defines hotkeys to switch resolutions (mostly for troubleshooting), and it launches Attract Mode itself. (I run the non-console version 2.3.)

The script is compiled as an EXE, and I put it in the registry instead of explorer.exe. So on start-up this script runs instead of Windows explorer, and in turn it launches Attract Mode.

It works pretty well. You see the Win 10 load screen briefly, then it just jumps straight into my intro.nut. Also, it seems like it helps with issues of quitting games and returning to Attract Mode with the front end in proper focus.

I use a lot of Autohotkey scripts on my cabinet to manage resolution changes for non-MAME games and various other tasks. I also use it to assign functions to certain buttons, like if you hold pause for 3 seconds I have AHK treat it as a quit game input (so I only need one physical button for pause and quit). It is also handy for dealing with configuration popups for games like Slain, where it asks you to choose your preferred resolution every time you start the game up. AHK can hide those and make the appropriate selection without the user ever seeing them. Anyhow, I highly recommend it, especially if you are mixing MAME and non-MAME content.
Scripting / OVerlapping animations, how to stop it?
« Last post by gionni44 on Today at 04:51:49 AM »
Hi guys, I'm working on my layout but when it start animations run simoultanesly.
The Transition.ToNewList doesn't stop when I press to change game and the result is overlapping the 2 animations.  :(
Is there a way to stop Transition.ToNewList when start Transition.ToNewSelection?

local panel = fe.add_image("white.png", 0, 0, flw*0.28, flh*1.00 );
panel.set_rgb( pR, pG, pB );

   local plb_an1 = {
      when = Transition.ToNewSelection | Transition.ToNewList,
      property = "alpha"
      end = paa,
      time = 500,
   local plb_an2 = {
      when = Transition.ToNewSelection | Transition.ToNewList,
      property = "alpha"
      start = paa,
      end = 255,
      time = 4000,
      delay = 5000,
animation.add( PropertyAnimation( panel, plb_an1 ) );
animation.add( PropertyAnimation( panel, plb_an2 ) );

Thanks a lot !  :)

that's not correct. Project 64 supports different file formats:
zip , 7z , v64 , n64 , z64 , rom , usa , jap , pal , bin , ndd

My be supports different file formats but in .zip format working every time

Emulators / Re: Various emulator settings

uh.. a little bit tricky. This is the correct commandline, to start your game?
F:\HyperPC\Emulators\MFME 51\MFME.exe H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines\game123\game123.gam

regarding to this post, you need an identical folder and filename stucture like this:
H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines\game123\game123.gam
H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines\gameABC\gameABC.gam
and so on

this should work to you:
Code: [Select]
executable           F:\HyperPC\Emulators\MFME 51\MFME.exe
args                 [rompath][name]\[name].gam"
rompath              H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines
romext               <DIR>

I don't agree.

One could say that not too many cares about RPi and emulation - as it introduces a horrible input delay.
Come on - if it works ok on PC you can release it. Just post a warning that it's not suitable for RPi.

Sorry I put this project in the back burner. It runs so poorly on the pi it's not even funny. It does however work well in a pc, but I don't think too many care about that.

Check Rom path "C:\Project64\roms"

Post console output when you run a game.
