Logitech Gamepad F310 for linux

(yeah I know it's hardware do you mind? i'll pull if if it's not ok)

make sure the switch on the back is set to x

install the xboxdrv package from the repositories.

In windows the pad works correctly out of the box. In linux the L2 and R2 triggers act like axis events (gas and break peddles)..NOT buttons. (NOT good for any emulator needing these buttons...unless you are playing a racing game. :P )

To make them work as buttons envoke the trigger-as-button command
at the terminal type

Code: [Select]
xboxdrv --trigger-as-button commandthen press enter

Now the pad should act correctly now! :)

I have to agree with you...it does work. However I ran into some problems with some game not working correctly with the default cfg

start AM > press TAB > Emulators > Add Emulator > fill in name, path to kodi.exe, arguments, path to roms (in this case roms means your media files) and rom types (.avi, .mpg, .mkv, and so on) > Generate Collection/Rom List > Back > Back
See VLC mp3 for syntax comparison

@hermine.potter

I wish it did not have the ROM list, that by clicking on KODI in the Menu the program would open.

@all
this thread should only include an overview of various emulator settings and not any questions to unique systems.
so next time > new thread



@trmelancieri
open your KODI folder (in my case : C:\attract\EMU\KODI) > create shortcut of Kodi.exe > rename it to Start KODI

start AM > press TAB > Emulators > Add Emulator > KODI
Code: [Select]
executable           cmd
args                 /c "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\Kodi
romext               .lnk

Generate Collection/Rom List

now you have a system called KODI with one rom file there : Start KODI
this rom file is simply a shortcut to start the Kodi.exe

Instead creating an emulator system each tool, create a folder called TOOLS > create shortcut for all your .exe, .bat and so on > put the shortcuts (.lnk files) to this folder > create in AM an emulator called TOOLS > now you have an overview/collection of all your tools

Having trouble getting ePSXe to load from AM. All my games load and run perfectly directly from ePSXe.

I've tried every arg I've seen online and nothing works. I either get just the gui to pop up or it just blinks back to AM selection

Your argument is wrong. Try this instead.
Code: [Select]
args                 -nogui -loadbin "[romfilename]"

I've already tried that. I tried pretty much every arg I could find online. When I try to poen a rom through AM, it just flashes and returns me to the game selection screen. I tested all my roms through Maximus Arcade and they run without any issues but I really want to make the switch to AM.

I have this working and that's the argument I'm using. You must use the "-nogui" switch or else ePSXe will just open and any other switches will be ignored. You must also use the "-loadbin" to tell ePSXe to load a specific game. The "-f" switch you have listed for your argument is to disable the bios screen (and will be ignored since there isn't a "-nogui" before it.)

Try running one of your games from the command line (this will remove AttractMode from the equation). Once you get it working you'll know what to put in the argument field. Try this on the command line.
Code: [Select]
"C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\Arcade\emulators\Sony Playstation\ePSXe.exe" -nogui -loadbin "C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\Arcade\emulators\Sony Playstation\roms\<name of game>"

Hello. Does anyone here have the settings to launch Supergrafx in Attract Mode? I know it has a five-game library, but I would like to include it.

Thanks  :D.

well that would depend on the emulator you are using...

mednafen will run all pcengine/super graphics/pcengine cd games...as will most pcengine /turbografx-16 emulators without a need for any changes.. 

that is except for retroarch...

if you are using a pi or just running it on a pc it's different.. (see pic)

in retro pie..you dump all your roms in the pcengine folder..no matter what type..be it normal cart (hucard)..or cd roms..or super grafx

you start a supergrafx game.. (ex.1941) normally..then hold a button..and the "settings options pop up..now the second option is "use emulator for this rom..(or something like that) choose the supergrafx core. Now all your games can be run from the pcengine/turbografx-16 folder

on pc..if using attract mode...you can use the supergrafx core..you set up the five game in another folder and treat them as another emulator...then you you can paste them into your pcengine/turbografx-16 list and start them from that list instead..so now they are on one list

mednafen_supergrafx_libretro is the core for supergrafx

@web
Workaround for any emulator system or application :
1) cmd > start .exe with /? or -help parameter => in this case : --help
2) see attached readme-file in emulator or application folger => tells the correct commandline parameters
3) start .exe > hit F1 for help/manual => in this case not supported
4) using google : different threads tells the correct commandline parameters

==========

So see Post#7 http://spaceinvaders.fr.yuku.com/topic/583/ZiNc-emulator-help-please#.VzsBLEY9nrs

-Start game with game number (not very handy)
or
-create batchfile with correct parameters and rename to correct game title
C:\attract\EMU\zinc\ZiNc.exe 8 --roms-directory=C:\attract\EMU\zinc\roms --use-renderer-cfg-file=C:\attract\EMU\zinc\renderer.cfg --renderer=C:\attract\EMU\zinc\renderer.znc
-rename it to "Street Fighter EX 2.bat" and move all to a single-folder (e.g.: C:\attract\EMU\zinc\links )

In AM use this settings for config-file:
executable           cmd
args                 /c "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\zinc\links
romext               .bat

Nice info thanks. Helps a lot in a lot emulators.
