General / Re: Mame + Attract Mode Games won't launch

as you can see in help file, working dir is used with emulator, relative path, and so on.

So this should do it:
Code: [Select]
executable           C:\Users\me\Desktop\mame\mame64.exe
args                 [name] -skip_gameinfo
rompath              C:\Users\me\Desktop\mame\roms
romext               .zip;.7z
system               Arcade
info_source          listxml

The "Initializing"-problem is probably a mame-problem.
Unfortunately you have not given your AM-configuration (your_AM-folder\emulators\your-emulator.txt).

what you can test:

-set second display to same or lower resolution as first display

-in taskbar-settings, set taskbar to hide

-set Non-Blocking Mode Wait in emulator settings
start AM > press TAB key > Emulators > your_emulator > Non-Blocking Mode Wait
try it from 1 to 5 

-try another emulator for your system

You have to differentiate here. Deleting an emulator. Deleting a display.

>Deleting an emulator:
Start AM > press TAB key > Emulators > Your_Emulator > Delete this Emulator

the .cfg-file of emulator will be deleted (your_AM-folder\emulators\Your_Emulator.cfg)
the Emulator-Display still exists, because it is stored in attract.cfg

>Deleting a display:
Start AM > press TAB key > Displays > your_Emulator-Display > Delete this Display

the display will be deleted from attract.cfg
The Emulator still exits (your_AM-folder\emulators\Your_Emulator.cfg)

Would like to show two more options, getting images to emulator:

1) using another emulator + integrated mount options:
you already know, that there exists another emulators.
but this should be mentioned, that meanwhile many of them have an integrated mount option support.
so preloading of images is not necessary.
for example bizhawk (emuhawk) is a multi-system emulator and supports TurboGrafx.

2) using a general batch file to mount dynamic image file and starts it in emulator, using commandline parameters : %1:
for example, to mount a DVD-video-image with WinCDEmu (image mounting freeware tool) and start it in VLC:

-create a batchfile (for example : START.bat):
Code: [Select]
@echo off
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinCDEmu\batchmnt.exe" /unmountall
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinCDEmu\batchmnt.exe" %1
"C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" dvd:///d:/ --fullscreen

-set in VLC-settings the ESC key as Close-Hotkey

-in AM:
Code: [Select]
executable           cmd
args                 /c C:\attract\EMU\DVD\START.bat "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\DVD\ROMS
romext               .iso;.img
system               PC
exit_hotkey          Escape

AM starts START.bat with rompath + romfilename as commandline parameter.
inside the batch file, %1 takes this rompath + romfilename and mounts the image to next empty drive D: (you can define a specific drive too. See commandline parameters of WinCDEmu).
VLC starts playback of "inserted DVD on drive D:"

RPI uses a kind of linux distribution.
So you can not use windows executables / windows versions of your emulator.

for a quick start, use a web search engine and look, which emulators exists and how it's implemented in retropie:

maybe you left an unused space character at the end?

I've set a space at the end of emulator configuration, started AM, generated Romlist and AM crashed...
After restarting AM again, the space character was automatic removed?!

it seems, that AM can't work with spaces at the end, if you edit the emulator config before...

white background = not transparent / not lucid?

open your file with or GIMP (windows paint do not show transparency/lucidity).
if you see a chess pattern (white/grey cubes), your graphic is transparent/lucid

if you see white color, your graphic is not transparent/no lucid.

The rom-extension isn't correct.
at the moment, AM search for files with extension: ".3ds .cci"
you have to seperate multiple items with semicolon: .3ds;.cci

romext               .3ds;.cci

try resfix plugin:
start AM > press TAB key > Plug-ins > ResFix > Enabled : Yes > Specific Emulators : Name_of_your_Display/emulator

Goto your romlists (your_AM-folder\romlists) and edit category column to your prefered text/systems

use the standard themes Basic, Cools or Refelect.
They show the raw text from these romlist-files.


Add further themes from Themes-section and edit layout.nut to your prefered text/systems
for example Game Station Theme
