I'm not using retroarch.

Are you able to start a game from commandline / batch?

Are you sure, that your arguments correct (using full path)?
-L cores/scummvm_libretro.dll
=> -L C:\emu\retroarch\cores\scummvm_libretro.dll

General / Re: setting up openbor in attract mode.

@ Ryugah
See section OpenBOR
use external script / software, that waits for an escape button and do a processclose / taskkill to OpenBOR.exe

@ Yaron2019
All your settings (fullscreen, resolution, controls, ..) are stored in one file
your_OpenBOR_Game\Saves\same_Name_like_PAK-File.cfg
and it's not editable / not readable

So try this:

1 ) Configure a game like you wish (so you get a "master"-configuration under your_OpenBOR_Game\Saves\same_Name_like_PAK-File.cfg)
2 ) goto your next OpenBOR Game
3 ) goto your_OpenBOR_Game\Paks
4 ) note the name of .pak or .spk
5 ) goto your_OpenBOR_Game\Saves
6 ) delete existing .cfg file ( Name_of_step3.cfg )
7 ) copy your "master"-configuraton there
8 ) rename to Name_of_step3.cfg

this could probably be automated by script (AHK, autoit, batch, vbs, ...):
read filename from name.pak > delete name.cfg > copy master.cfg > rename to name.cfg

extracting from an existing image file (seems you found it already).

OR

using a photo/image editing tool (like paint.net)

General / Re: Default artwork when artwork is missing
« on: October 01, 2020, 11:01:32 PM »
the default image / "non-existing-artwork"-file needs the same name like display-name
name of display : SNES => default-image : SNES.png

Linux is case sensitive : your paths and folder-names are correct?

Isn't it, that there exist a hidden attract folder : /home/<username>/.attract
Are there any artwork files? Check your romlist too.

>Attractmode Introvideo (video that plays, when starting Attractmode):
start AM > press TAB key > Intro
no. only one videofile possible

>Multiple Artwork videos (video that plays, if you scroll through gamelist):
if you have a game called Game123.xyz

your_AM_folder\scraper\your_system
remove any Game123.png, Game123..jpg

create a folder:
Game123

copy there your video files and rename as follows (if you have mp4-videofiles):
Game123-1.mp4
Game123-2.mp4

not directly, but...

>modify and compile attractmode sourcecode:
like KODI entry in Attractmode RPI Image

or

use enclosed AM-Plugin UtilityMenu (for example : start VLC Media Player):
start AM > press TAB-Key > Plug-ins > UtilityMenu > Enabled : Yes > Set a control Key (for example : U) > Item 1 Menu Text : start VLC > Item 1 Command : "C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe"

if you press U button, then you can start VLC

or

use .exe as extension and remove unnecessary entries from romlist:
executable           C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe
rompath              C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\
romext               .exe
system               Arcade
info_source          thegamesdb.net
exit_hotkey          Escape

edit romlist textfile and remove unnecessary .exe files (your AM_folder\romlists)

Have a look to the theme attractman:
your_AM_folder > layouts > Attrac-Man > layout.nut

this codelines are responsible, to show the amount of games:
Code: [Select]
local l = fe.add_text( "[ListEntry]/[ListSize]", 0, 322, 60, 10 );
l.align = Align.Left;
l.set_rgb( 80, 80, 80 );

>taskkill of emulator task:

Here



or

>change complete emulator settings (instead using command line).

the folder structure seems always be the same:
YourGame123\PS3_GAME\USRDIR\EBOOT.BIN
YourGameABC\PS3_GAME\USRDIR\EBOOT.BIN

use gamefolder as "romfilename"

This should do it (untested):
executable           C:\attract\EMU\PS3\rpcs3.exe
args                 C:\attract\EMU\PS3\ROMS\[name]\PS3_GAME\USRDIR\EBOOT.BIN
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\PS3\ROMS
romext               <DIR>
system               Sony Playstation 3
info_source          thegamesdb.net
exit_hotkey          Escape

General / Re: Add command before and after emulator launch
« on: September 25, 2020, 01:58:17 AM »
via NUT script:
Here
Here

or

external software, that checks if specific .exe is started (Autoit + winwaitactive command)

or (but not very handy)

change emulator settings to command line + different start commands
