General / Xinput "Home/ON/Xbox" button not recognised by AM?
« on: September 04, 2020, 08:55:48 AM »
I'd like to map that button as hotkey for ending process, but AM ignores competely my presses.
I've been using joy2key for this, since it does recognise the button, and i just map that to the emulators exit hotkey. But it'd be cleaner and easier to just do it from AM, if there's a way.

Is there a way?

General / listXML for non-MAME emulators
« on: August 12, 2020, 08:20:37 PM »
Ok so here's the deal, i have a few arcade emulators besides MAME, like Nebula (for neo-geo and capcom), supermodel, and Model2. I'd like to use only one, but this is the easiest and fastest way i got every game i wanted running.

Now,i can't retrieve the metadata of those with thegamesdb. BUT i can get it with listxml if i swap the emulator with my MAME executable, generate the romlist, then swap back to the original emulator.

But it's a pain in the ass to do that every single time i update the romlists. Is there a way to force the romlist to retrieve the data from my MAME executable but keeping the real emulator in place?

Or perhaps there's a similar command for Nebula and the others to retrieve the same data? or a way to export the list from mame and load it as a file for the other romlists?

General / Unable to modify or create romlists
« on: August 12, 2020, 08:27:56 AM »
Since last night, for some reason, AM is unable to modify or create romlists in any way.

I can't change titles, i can't delete entries, and if i overwrite a romlist it stays the same. If i create an emulator, it doesn't create it's corresponding romlist, although it automatically sets the emulator's romlist with it's corresponding romlist, but it's a "ghost" one that dissapears when you scroll between your romlists, clearly because it never existed. (i did check in the folders, it does not exist)

I downloaded a fresh clean download of the frontend, and same thing happens. I even tried an older build, same thing.
I apparently don't have issues with other software, only Attract-Mode romlist creation.
I spent hours last night googling and it might be because of a windows update, but i'm not finding a solution.

Anyone been thru this?

General / Game works when ran from emulator, but not from frontend
« on: August 10, 2020, 01:58:19 PM »
This never happened to me before, but right now i was completing my neo-geo/CPS2 and such collection, and "VHUNT2" as  in "vampire hunter 2", one of the entries on the darkstalkers fighting games, is stuck in a black screen BUT only when ran from AM. If i open Nebula and then select the rom from the list, it works. No other game gave me such error. Oh im using nebula 2.25, btw.
 
To be honest i'd give up on this game at this point, there's like three other darkstalkers games that ran. But i'd like to know what caused this issue and how to avoid it in the future, and by doing so also possibly helping out someone out there with the same problem.

General / Metadata for non-MAME romlists?
« on: August 05, 2020, 09:57:12 PM »
Is this possible somehow? for mame i didn't have to move a finger and it scraped all the information for me, which is neat.
It would really help me to filter games by single/multiplayer and make a neat list for whenever i play with friends

Also, since recreating the romlist overwrites any changes i do manually, the auto-scraping of said data is crucial.
Otherwise im choosing between manually fixing every entry each time i add a few roms, or adding the roms manually to the textfile, or creating a new romlist and merging it with a backup with my information (again, manually). Which is awful and tedious.

I have "SkraperUI" installed which really helped me getting all the art for my games, but i never dwelled into the metadata side of the scraping before. I thought it could be added separately from the romlists but apparently not, which is BAD.

Any advice?

Emulators / EPSXe and multidisk games. How?
« on: January 12, 2020, 07:26:21 PM »
As the title says, i use EPSXe and i have no clue how to approach multidisk games, and there's some great ones like final fantasy (7 and 9) or metal gear solid.

I must find a solution to this! You have any? Only thing i can come up with is adding the game twice, but if some game needs to swap disks during gameplay it could get tricky.

Themes / PSP robospin
« on: July 14, 2019, 05:49:10 PM »
It's a modification of Sean Wallitsch's "Robospin GBA".
Hope you don't mind me doing this without asking for permission. Since i didn't see any layouts for PSP i gave it a try.
There is a lot of room for improvement but i think it looks fine for an hour (or so) of work eh?

Any feedback is welcome.

General / Update Romlist without losing changes
« on: July 11, 2019, 09:25:21 PM »
Something i've been struggling since i started using AM is this, whenever i download a single new game for a certain emulator, if i wanna include it on my lists, i lose all the changes i made to every other rom, the displayed name, the genre, number of players, etc.

Is there a way to look for roms and ignore the ones that are already there, only add the new ones? or anything along the lines, maybe something that asks you if you wanna overwrite, something that saves for good on some config file what you change on the roms?

is there a way to load the information from, say, the NES romlist so it's automatically applied to an "ALL GAMES" list? i'm currently not inheriting any data from the lists.

please help
