Launch app has been released.

You're a legend! You've enhanced Attract Mode by creating a more realistic arcade experience and for that, I could not be more grateful!

I think you question is kinda confusing. Are you wanting the display to say arcade instead of mame when you are selecting a game?

if you use adobe after effects 12 and set the output flv + alpha range and raising all quality to maximum not nearly lost. I probe it and it works perfect. I leave you the capture of the config

Mickelson has added support for nesting in the source. I haven't tried it myself
Emulators / Taito Type X launch issues
« Last post by Vlaryn on September 18, 2017, 05:24:53 PM »
I am having trouble launching Taito Type X Games. Every time I try and launch the game it never starts. I found that if click the game then hit windows key to pull me out of the AM gui I will load. So I created a batch file that would launch notepad for 3 seconds to pull me out of AM and then launch the game and I though it was fixed. The next issue I now have is that when I am in the game and click a joystick button it works but its also still sending these command to AM in the background and that tries to launch another game. I will post my AM cfg and the bat file I am using for suggestions. Also I am not using rlauncher. would rather stay away from rlauncher.
