General / Re: Multi Monitor not working
« on: Today at 01:20:20 AM »
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 version 2.3

General / Re: How to get attract to detect game from cd tray

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please do not quote complete posts.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]

you mix/mistake autoit with autohotkey.
they're two different languages, with different syntax

sleep command autoit
sleep command autohotkey

« on: May 03, 2018, 03:56:04 AM »
it's similar to the settings of OpenBor

Code: [Select]
executable           cmd
args                 /c cd C:\attract\EMU\OpenBOR\[name] & start OpenBOR.exe & start C:\attract\EMU\OpenBOR\wait_for_ESC.exe
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\OpenBOR
romext               <DIR>

using cmd, /c, & and start

put AM aside.
open CMD / command line and enter your path, exe and so on.
If you are able to start your romfiles from there, tell us the complete command.
then we can transfer it to AM.
