General / Hide console when loading and exiting roms? (Retropie)
« Last post by tonberryhunter on January 11, 2018, 11:56:12 PM »
I'm working on my custom front end and find it troublesome that I see the console briefly everytime I start and exit a game. 

Is there a way to hide the console?

Also is there a fix for glGetError 0x500 yet?

Im running the latest Retropie btw.

Which one do you have?

Looked at pictures of several Kensington trackballs, and seems like the trackball would pop out when playing arcade games? Also, does the scrollring actually spin i.e. like does it keep spinning if you give it a whirl like an actual arcade spinner?

Kensington trackball with scrollring works great for a trackball and spinner and was only 30 bucks. It does kinda jump but with some tweaking I got it so you don't really notice.  Tried it on tron and it did well. I'll update this when I get more info. I just got this today. Arknoid is next after the kiddy's go to bed!!! FINGERS CROSSED!!
I'm not sure this will help, but make sure you only list the rom folder in you AM emulator file.   Then go to mame.ini in your mame directory and list the CHD folder in there (under "rompath") so Mame is able to run the CHD when AM boots the rom (zip) file.

General / Killer Instinct not displaying title correctly on favourites display on AM
« Last post by Rupert H on January 10, 2018, 03:01:54 PM »
Hello all,

I’m having trouble with Killer Instinct and Killer Instinct 2 displaying in Attract Mode. I have a full MAME 1.93 set and have divided them into filters by genre and have created a favourite filter, and every other title is displaying perfectly. In both the default unfiltered MAME and the fighting game genre list both KI games display as their full titles, along with the manufacturer, year of release and genre. In the favourite folder filter however they’re displaying as the raw ROM titles “kinst” and “kinst2”, and they’re listed at the end of the alphabetical list after Z. Both games load perfectly.

Using the first game as an example the paths are c:/mame/roms, with the “” and another folder named “kinst” containing “kinst.chd”.

I have checked my 1.93 catver.ini wich lists both games correctly with full details (as expected as they’re displaying correctly through the unfiltered MAME and genre displays) and I’ve checked the mame.tags file in AM which shows both “kinst” and “kinst2”. I’ve also double checked the favourites filter rules and can’t see anything strange there.

To problem solve I deleted the “” which displayed the titles correctly in the favourites filter, but then the games don’t boot as they contain necessary files.

Any idea what I’m doing wrong here? I’d love to solve this annoyance.

For info I’m using GM1.93 and AM 2.3.0 in the basic layout on Windows 7 64.
General / X360/PS3 Home Button Request
« Last post by dukpoki on January 10, 2018, 11:22:14 AM »
I'm using a PS3 Dualshock 3 with Scptool drivers for Win 7, which makes it recognize on the computer as a xinput x360 controller.  Every button is read/recognized by AM except for the Home (PS)/Guide (x360) button (for the record, the single button doesn't show up in "Devices & Printers" but it works for RetroArch).   It would be ideal if I can program that button as the "Exit Emulator Hotkey" in AM.   Can AM developers please program this in for future releases?  Thanks.
