Title: Various emulator settings
Post by: rsn8887 on December 23, 2015, 11:17:30 AM
I am going to list some findings I made when setting up the cabinet. I am planning to update this as I learn more.

Fusion:
Use
-fullscreen "[romfilename]"
command line argument to ensure escape exits the emulator instead of switching between fullscreen and windowed.

Download the "fusion shader pack" http://www.emucr.com/2013/04/kega-fusion-plugins-20130427.html extract to plugins, start emulator, right click, video->render plugin->double snake to apply a 2x prescale and reduce blurring.

Finalburn Alpha:
select blitter -> enhanced, blitter options -> enable prescale to reduce blurring

Retroarch:
command line arguments example for higan (bsnes):
-f -L P:\emulators\retroarch\cores\bsnes_balanced_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"

load a game, press F1->quick menu->shader options->load shader preset->retro/sharp-bilinear.cg, then select shader 0 filter->nearest, shader0 scale ->2x or 4x to minimize blurring

Visualboyadvance-M-WX:
use these lines in vbam.ini before [GB] to enable prescale and keep aspect.
[Display]
Bilinear=1
Filter=simple4x
FilterPlugin=
IFB=none
KeepOnTop=0
MaxThreads=1
RenderMethod=opengl
Scale=3
Stretch=1

FS-UAE:
for KG whdload packs, use executable
FS-UAE\Windows\fs-uae-launcher.exe
and the standard argument "[romfilename]"
to load whdload packs. Just unzip all the whdload packs to get the .lha files.
Use rom extension .lha and fs-uae-launcher.exe will automatically setup and boot the whd load game. Put whdload.key in the fs-uae directory to get rid of the nag screens. whdload.key is expensive, but worth it.

Nice find :D

Future Pinball

executable          C:/Future Pinball/Future Pinball.exe
args                     /open "[romfilename]" /play /exit
rompath              C:/Future Pinball/tables/
romext                .fpt


Set compatibility mode to "Windows XP".

ePSXe this emulator works fine but I don't know how to launch with AM. Is there a command line argument I need to add. I would imagine it would be the same command line argument I would need to add so I can run Makaron. PLEASE HELP?

haha  :o...thanks...So I put in -nogui -slowboot -loadbin for ePSXe does that go by the exe path or in the command arguments in AM?

@xev1in
e.g. zsnes (so adapt it to ePSXe and correct parameters):

path_to_your_emulator_system\emulator_system.exe -parameters_that_starts_a_rom path_to_your_roms\romfile.rom_extension

this command-line starts a specific snes-game directly:
C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\zsnesw.exe -m C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\roms\my_snes_game.smc

In AM use this config:
executable           C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\zsnesw.exe
args                 -m "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\roms
romext               .smc

Sorry that doesn't work it just blinks the cmd prompt window but does not launch the game. I've tried with .bin file and tried a .zip, both do the same thing.

-Post your settings

-always and for all further emulator systems:
1) check your execution-command, paths and parameters with a specific game in cmd-window before
if you wrote this line in command window, zsnes starts the specific game my_snes_game
"C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\zsnesw.exe" -m "C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\roms\my_snes_game.smc"
=> if it starts : go to step 2)
=> if not : go to step 1) again and check correct parameters and so on

2) transfer your execution-command, paths and parameters to AM-settings:
C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\zsnesw.exe = executable
my_snes_game = [romfilename]
.smc = romext
and so on

So wrote your command, path and parameters to cmd-window (with a specific psx-game (.bin, .iso., .img)) and eleminate errors step by step.

Any configuration for ZINC roms ? I dont find on forum

Because the zinc emulator does not use a "standard" format to run games. it's hard to post a configuration. Zinc uses numbers to load the games not the file name as most emulators do.

I did get mine to work this way however:

Make nul files. That is create a empty txt file and rename it 1.nul 2.nul..ect.. So you will set up everything up in your zinc configuration file the same but for the extension have it find all the nul files...NOT the zip files. Then for the args use [NAME] NOT
'[romlilename]"

name Zinc
Executable C\:games\zinc\zinc.exe
args [name]
extension  .nul

Now when you start a game from attractmode it will literally pass "zinc.exe 2" to the command line thus the syntax is correct and your game will load from attract mode.

of course make sure you set up ZiNC first before setting it up in attract mode!

D.I.C.E.

Because DICE does not load games the normal way it can be tricky to get it to work from attract mode (or any frontend).

Some games do have roms. They can be loaded normally and set up as such. As for games that have no roms there is a trick to get them to work. (There were no ROMS not even a CPU as these games were made before they started using "modern computing" thats in a nutshell..)

Make a empty new txt file and rename it. ex make a test file and name it pong.nul. do that for a the "missing roms" now have attactmode look for extensions of .zip and .nul  (ex. .zip;nul) Now you can play pong from attract mode! :)

for epsxe

you only need -slowboot option if you want to see the bios (sony logo) at start of game. (I still think it's cool.)

Battle Arena Toshinden

Because this game runs WAY too fast from a normal start...you can slow it down by using the -oldtiming switch and it runs "perfect" :)

Logitech Gamepad F310 for linux

(yeah I know it's hardware do you mind? i'll pull if if it's not ok)

make sure the switch on the back is set to x

install the xboxdrv package from the repositories.

In windows the pad works correctly out of the box. In linux the L2 and R2 triggers act like axis events (gas and break peddles)..NOT buttons. (NOT good for any emulator needing these buttons...unless you are playing a racing game. :P )

To make them work as buttons envoke the trigger-as-button command
at the terminal type

Code: [Select]
xboxdrv --trigger-as-button commandthen press enter

Now the pad should act correctly now! :)

so next time > new thread



@trmelancieri
open your KODI folder (in my case : C:\attract\EMU\KODI) > create shortcut of Kodi.exe > rename it to Start KODI

start AM > press TAB > Emulators > Add Emulator > KODI

rompath              C:\attract\EMU\Kodi

Generate Collection/Rom List

now you have a system called KODI with one rom file there : Start KODI
this rom file is simply a shortcut to start the Kodi.exe

Instead creating an emulator system each tool, create a folder called TOOLS > create shortcut for all your .exe, .bat and so on > put the shortcuts (.lnk files) to this folder > create in AM an emulator called TOOLS > now you have an overview/collection of all your tools

I have this working and that's the argument I'm using. You must use the "-nogui" switch or else ePSXe will just open and any other switches will be ignored. You must also use the "-loadbin" to tell ePSXe to load a specific game. The "-f" switch you have listed for your argument is to disable the bios screen (and will be ignored since there isn't a "-nogui" before it.)

Try running one of your games from the command line (this will remove AttractMode from the equation). Once you get it working you'll know what to put in the argument field. Try this on the command line.
Code: [Select]
"C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\Arcade\emulators\Sony Playstation\ePSXe.exe" -nogui -loadbin "C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\Arcade\emulators\Sony Playstation\roms\<name of game>"

Thanks  :D.
Title: Re: Various emulator settings
Post by: akafox on January 06, 2017, 07:39:13 AM
well that would depend on the emulator you are using...

mednafen will run all pcengine/super graphics/pcengine cd games...as will most pcengine /turbografx-16 emulators without a need for any changes.. 

that is except for retroarch...

if you are using a pi or just running it on a pc it's different.. (see pic)

in retro pie..you dump all your roms in the pcengine folder..no matter what type..be it normal cart (hucard)..or cd roms..or super grafx

you start a supergrafx game.. (ex.1941) normally..then hold a button..and the "settings options pop up..now the second option is "use emulator for this rom..(or something like that) choose the supergrafx core. Now all your games can be run from the pcengine/turbografx-16 folder

on pc..if using attract mode...you can use the supergrafx core..you set up the five game in another folder and treat them as another emulator...then you you can paste them into your pcengine/turbografx-16 list and start them from that list instead..so now they are on one list

mednafen_supergrafx_libretro is the core for supergrafx

Sorry this code is wrong.  :-[

Code: [Select]
@echo off
SET linkspath=C:\attract\EMU\dosbox\links\
SET dosboxpath=C:\attract\EMU\dosbox\DOSBox.exe

for %%a in (%1) do (

cd %filepath%

echo "%dosboxpath%" > %linkspath%%currentfolder%.bat %1 -exit -fullscreen

The correct would be:  :-[ :-[ :-[

Could any one help me with the command line settings for MFME emulator 5.1
I am trying to boot games from within a directory and not having much luck?
The settings I am using are-

executable           H:\HyperPC\Emulators\MFME 51\MFME.exe
args                 -s "[emulator]" -r "[name]"
rompath              H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines

@mastic_man
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
what shows console window of AM (errors)?
So we can help you.

Post by: mastic_man on February 09, 2018, 03:01:48 AM
Hermine, thank you for taking the time and reading my post.

The command line for launching a game would be -
F:\HyperPC\Emulators\MFME 51\MFME.exe [FileName].gam

The games are in separate directories
 H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines\FileName Folder for example.

The error message i got was "Fruit machines is not a valid integer"

@mastic_man
uh.. a little bit tricky. This is the correct commandline, to start your game?
F:\HyperPC\Emulators\MFME 51\MFME.exe H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines\game123\game123.gam

regarding to this post (http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1770.msg12494#msg12494), you need an identical folder and filename stucture like this:
H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines\game123\game123.gam
H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines\gameABC\gameABC.gam
and so on

this should work to you:
Code: [Select]
executable           F:\HyperPC\Emulators\MFME 51\MFME.exe
args                 [rompath][name]\[name].gam"
rompath              H:\HyperPC\Roms\Fruit Machines

Title: Re: Various emulator settings
Post by: Enkak on February 26, 2019, 06:16:55 AM
hi guys,

I'm having some difficulties finding the right arguments to launch the games with two emulators. Probably missing something simple

First, Redream (dreamcast)

Attract-mode finds the games, lists them, etc., but every time and with different arguments it launches Redream menu instead of the games directly.

executable         emulators\Dreamcast\redream.exe
args                 "[rompath][name]"
rompath            collections\Dreamcast\roms
romext              .chd


Second, what would be the right arg to launch systems/consoles through mame?
PS: arcade mame roms launch normal.

Attract-mode finds the games, lists them, etc., but every time screen goes black some seconds and then back to menu without launching the games

Megadrive/Genesis example:

executable           emulators\Arcade\mame64.exe
args                 "[system]" -cart "[romfilename]"
rompath              collections\Megadrive\roms
romext               .zip;.7z
system               megadriv;Sega Megadrive


Thank you in advance!

Title: Re: Various emulator settings
Post by: Enkak on February 26, 2019, 12:21:00 PM
Thank you progets for the help but sadly still doing the same in both cases. :(

using console redream gives this message that could be related after listing everything correctly:

"chd parse failed to open collection bla bla game.chd"

The emulator loads well outside of AM and directly without problems in other frontend like retroFE for example.

try...

Code: [Select]
executable         emulators\Dreamcast\redream.exe
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath            collections\Dreamcast\roms
romext              .chd

Code: [Select]
executable           emulators\Arcade\mame64.exe
args                 megadriv -cart "[romfilename]"
rompath              collections\Megadrive\roms
romext               .zip;.7z

Title: Re: Various emulator settings
Post by: Enkak on February 26, 2019, 02:30:25 PM
Ok, problem solved for both cases finally. The solution resides in having relative paths in args for the two examples below. It works similar for other emulators. This way both the games launch and we can also scan the roms directories without problem. For genesis with mame I added the extra view command for the purpose of having different bezels working for each game.

executable           emulators\Dreamcast\redream.exe
args                    "..\..\[romfilename]"
rompath              collections\Dreamcast\roms
romext               .chd


executable           emulators\Arcade\mame64.exe
args                    genesis -cart "..\..\[romfilename]" -view "[name]"
rompath              collections\Megadrive\roms
romext               .7z

Hi yiri.

My arguments here at the moment are this for make it work with relative paths:

executable           ..\..\emulators\Sega Dreamcast\redream.exe
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              ..\..\collections\Sega Dreamcast\roms
romext               .chd


In your case I would convert the GDI to CHD. Not only you will get smaller files but also a single file. It's easy and fast. To do it use chdman that you can find attached. Just drop your games files (gdi with raw, bin, etc) in the folder and click the Cue or GDI to CHD bat.

are you able to start a game correct from commandline with cart1 and cart2 as parameter?
(mame documentation (https://docs.mamedev.org/_files/MAME.pdf))

something like this:
mame64.exe  cpc6128 -flop1 "C:\AMSTRAD\yourgamedisk1.dsk"  -flop2 "C:\AMSTRAD\yourgamedisk2.dsk" and so on...

if this works, we can find a way, to add to AM ^-^

Have a look to mess (http://mess.redump.net/mess/howto#floppy_emulation) (which is similar to mame commands):
Code: [Select]
Floppy Emulation

MESS supports floppy disk for a huge number of systems. To load a floppy disk in MESS, you simply need to use the -flop option (for systems with many floppy drives, you use -flop1, …, -flop4 respectively):

mess.exe <system> -flop foo.ext

so it should works in mame too. Try in commandline:
Code: [Select]
change to mame folder with
cd your_path_to_mame

mame64.exe cpc6128 -flop1 "C:\AMSTRAD\yourgamedisk1.dsk"  -flop2 "C:\AMSTRAD\yourgamedisk2.dsk"

@ market
what are your config for steam? same like here (section Steam) (http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?PHPSESSID=KhsNsLCzGb5Y0g5z0,bN12&topic=503.msg4231#msg4231).
Code: [Select]
executable           C:\attract\EMU\Steam\Steam.exe
args                 -applaunch [name]
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\Steam\SteamApps
romext               .acf
system               PC
info_source          steam

in newer version of AM, there is a non-blocking-mode-parameter (nb_mode_wait)
Code: [Select]
executable           C:\GAMES\Steam\Steam.exe
args                 -applaunch [name]
rompath              C:\GAMES\Steam\steamapps
romext               .acf
system               PC
info_source          steam
nb_mode_wait         5
exit_hotkey          Escape
artwork    marquee         C:\attract\scraper\Steam\marquee
artwork    snap            C:\attract\scraper\Steam\video;C:\attract\scraper\Steam\flyer

So, I Tryed with Both codes and I launch the game, the screen goes dark, the game launch... After while the AM goes back and the controler start to work in there's as well. So when i press "A" in the game, the command goes into AM as well

Yes I did, and the strange this is when I play the emulator alone, it plays just fine (my screen resolution is 1360x768), the problem is when I run the emulator from AM.

I have successfully launched Naomi/Naomi 2 and AtomisWave decrypted roms via Attractmode :

I have configured Demul in fullscreen, rompath and other settings, and I have used Naomi.cfg (as example) in emulators folder :

Code: [Select]
executable        cmd
args            /c "[romfilename]"
rompath     D:\Arcade\EMU\Naomi
romext      .bat
system     Arcade
exit_hotkey     Escape

artwork flyer          D:\Arcade\artwork\Naomi\flyer
artwork marquee D:\Arcade\artwork\Naomi\marquee
artwork video        D:\Arcade\artwork\Naomi\video
artwork wheel       D:\Arcade\artwork\Naomi\wheel

Then I have made a .bat for each decrypted rom in D:\Arcade\EMU\Naomi (decrypted rom Ken Ju .bat as example) :
Code: [Select]
@echo off
cd "D:\Arcade\EMU\Naomi\Demul"
start "" "demul.exe" -run=naomi -customrom="D:\Arcade\EMU\Naomi\Demul\roms\Kenju.bin"

@ Delita Hyral
please tell us, what are the correct arguments of Mame32 Plus, to start a rom-file from batch, CMD, command line.
See FAQ, helpfile, whatever of Mame32 Plus.

Well, I tried two arguments, they were,
  [name] -skip_gameinfo and "[name]".
both do not open anything. I am trying to use version "mamepgui" 0.168, I would like to use this version because of the beautiful image filters it provides! Is there no way to make it work? :(
