General / Mame not getting focus
« Last post by CB on Today at 12:56:00 AM »
Hi, the problem I have (most of the time, sometimes all works great) is that when I launch a game, I get a black screen, but do not see neither mame nor AM. With CTRL+ALT+DEL I can see that mame has loaded and I can change focus to it and the games plays correctly. When I exit mame and return to AM then I get the problem again when launching any game.
I have tried with different themes, with different screen resolutions, with clean installs and with a different graphics card. The card I have connected normally is an Intel onboard card (Dell Optiplex), the other I tried is a Radeon 7470.
I have read several posts (mostly where mame does not release focus to AM), but I can't find a solution.
Any advice greatly appreciated
Many thanks

Scripting / Re: Adding a background or bezel to screensaver

well yeah, but then the video is distorted.

Adding a bezel defeats the point of a screen saver. Anyways, have a look at layouts.md and squirrel-lang docs. It wouldn’t be hard to add what you wish. It would probably make more sense to find a set of overlays modified for widescreen, add them as artwork, and make a new screen saver layout with matching overlay and video snap.

Well it's a 16x9 monitor so 4x3 video will have black bars on the side.

Preserve Aspect Ratio = no

Scripting / Re: Screenshots and how to check if a file exists
« Last post by zpaolo11x on Yesterday at 02:15:43 PM »
Let me rephrase this: I want to take a screenshot each time the Transition.ShowOverlay happens, but if I do this:

if (ttype == Transition.ShowOverlay){
    fe.signal("screenshot")
}

the screenshot is created only _after_ I leave the overlay menu. Is there a workaround for that?
