TeknoParrot
« on: January 29, 2018, 08:35:53 AM »
Hi

Does anyone know a way to get TeknoParrot running through Attract Mode?
I can't see it listed in any threads but may have missed it.

Thanks

@RetroRacer
Hear from TeknoParrot the first time.
What are your parameters to start a game directly from command line?

path_to_your_emulator\emulator.exe -parameter -parameter path_to_your_romfile\romfile_name.romfile_extension

So we can help you.

Hello

I don't have the parameters to start a game from command line.

If you are not familiar with teknoparrot it runs it's own GUI frontend from which you choose a game from a drop down list.

The games are all arcade games that run on PC's originally, so they are .exe files.  Teknoparrot basically enables controls to be used, it is more a loader than an emulator.

I was hoping someone here may have used Attract Mode to launch a TeknoParrot game and could share the details.

Please try this & tell us how to use TeknoParrot via command line (or .bat files):
Here
Here - See Post #16
Here - Since Version 0.4a it "takes game profile as command line parameter"
