General / Re: Delay when exiting a game [AM is shelled]
« on: December 05, 2016, 12:50:12 AM »

thanks for your reply. FYI I'm using the CRT Emudrivers (ATI HD Radeon 6450) by Calamity. These drivers are from January 2015 and are not updated until now.
The delay only occurs when I use AttractMode as a Windows Shell Application. There is no delay, when I start AttractMode manually with explorer.exe as a Shell.
Unfortunately GroovyMAME does not launch properly when I use AttractMode with Fullscreen support. I will try to make a video tonight.

General / Delay when exiting a game [AM is shelled]
« on: December 04, 2016, 04:15:23 AM »

I'm testing AttractMode as a Windows Shell right now. My setup is a Windows 7 Pro x64 computer with GroovyMAME and CRT Emudriver on a Sony PVM Monitor. I start AM with C:\attractmode\attract.exe -c C:\attract in the correct Registry Hive.

If I run a game it starts fine. But when I exit the game there is a delay of 5-7 seconds until I can see the frontend again. I tested it with several settings like Window (no border),etc. There is always a delay. When I select Fullscreen and start a game i cannot see anything but hear the sound/music of the game. When I press Esc the frontend appears immediately. This is a very strange behavior I think. This problem only occurs when I use attract.exe as a Windows shell. When I start AttractMode normally it works fine and exits without any delay.

Does anyone can help me out on this problem? If someone needs a video or screenshots just tell me.
btw I tried the Resfix Option, but didn't make any difference.

Best regards,
