General / nb_mode_wait and windows_games trouble
« on: February 18, 2020, 06:15:14 PM »
Hello all!

I've almost got my windows_games working nicely but it seems when I fix one, I break another.

At first, I was not using the "nb_mode_wait" option and most of my games would launch correctly. But then I ran into Street Fighter V, and it seemed to launch a quick window, then would launch the game, and AM would resume focus after the first quick window disappeared.

After setting "nb_mode_wait" to "10", all of my games were loading correctly again with the delay. All except for one. Soul Calibur VI was working without "nb_mode_wait", but now that I've set it to 10 to fix Street Fighter V, now SCVI is acting bizarre.

SCVI will load a little window for quite awhile but AM will always instantly re-grab focus and therefore the game will not control properly (controlling in-game is actually simultaneously controlling AM).

I think when I was searching on much older solutions for windows_games like this, someone mentioned setting up a .bat file to launch the game or something... maybe that is an option?

Anyone run into this? Thank you!

General / Artwork / Scrape for windows_games?

Hey all,

Got my MAME setup going near perfect but now I'm trying to add a few Windows games.

I followed the suggestion to create shortcuts to my games and place all shortcuts in a folder. Then have AM build a list from the shortcuts folder.

For fun I tried an artwork scrape which ended up with nothing.

I suppose I can manually add some artwork but I don't fully understand how to do that.

Has anyone here setup windows_games artwork either via the scraper or manually that can share some info?

Thank you!

Quick edit: I did search many times and did read the most relevant setup and artwork topics but did not find much specifically for windows_games.
