@ gamesfan
sorry, can't help. I'm not using mameui.
I'm offering you the relevant files (old = before patching ; new = after patching).
Use a tool like winmerge to see which codeline differs / changes and transfer it to mameui sourcecode (it seems similar to mame sourcecode).

What happens, if you set the resfix plugin to your emulator-display?
start AM > press TAB key > Plug-ins > ResFix > Enabled : Yes > Specific Emulators : name_of_your_emulator_display

@ dukpoki
Probably it will not close both programs. I do not know surely. This should do it:

See section OpenBOR.
Create an autoit script that kills your emulator and joy2key task (you have to check this information in taskmanager under details).

In AM add a third parameter:
Code: [Select]
executable           cmd
args                 /c start "" "C:\path_to_emulator\your_emulator.exe" & start "" "path_to_joy2key\joy2key.exe" & start "" "path_to_task-kill_skript\task-kill-script.exe"

@ goz
start AM > press TAB key > Emulators > choose your emulator-display > choose Exit Hotkey > press your desired buttons simultaneously

@ slowsl
setup your games names > close AM > goto your artwork folder > rename artwork to your folder-game-names (so foldername and picturename are identic) > goto AM artwork folder > delete scummvm folder >

start AM > press TAB key > Emulators > choose your scummvm-display > depending on your layout (attrac-man, cools, reflect, verticools, and so on) > set flyer, marquee, snap, wheel to your artwork folder > Exit AM > start AM (and your artwork should be there now)

one offtopic information about scummvm 2.0.0 on windows & latest AM version 2.5.0:
i've added my games via scummvm-menu manually in scummvm.
After adding, setup and configure scummvm display and emulator in AM, correct game names are showed in AM automatic?!
After starting game via AM, a window popups that scummvm searchs your input to scummvm-gameid automatically (only the games, that i've addes manually to scummvm-menu). Nice feature of scummvm team. Thanks ^-^

See section windows_games.
If you are able to start the game via commandline, it should work in AM too.

@ slowsl
thats right.
See here (Section scumm-vm).
scummvm using own game-id (sq5 for Space Quest 5).
You have to use the own scumm-vm game-id as gamefolder names > create romlist > then edit the second column (title) in romlist (See)

It's the button to start an arcade machine (choosing one player game).
So it's a nice homage to arcade machine ^-^

@ moonpatrol
you could create a .bat file containing this:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
start "" "path_to_your_emulator\your_emulator.exe"
start "" "path_to_joy2key\joy2key.exe"

or in AM:
Code: [Select]
executable           cmd
args                 /c start "" "C:\path_to_emulator\your_emulator.exe" & start "" "path_to_joy2key\joy2key.exe"

A little note on using batch files:
If you convert a .bat file with this tool to .exe you are able to suppress the command window / start it invisible.

I'm not using linux.

« on: October 16, 2018, 10:36:44 PM »
maybe there is an option in settings?
I do not know.

Another way, see here (OpenBOR section).
you need an external script, that kills a specific task, if ESC is pressed.

@ rand0m
Sure. There are three methods:

1) sleep timer
a simple sleep timer by command:
3000 means 3000 milliseconds (3 seconds);
half second (0,5 seconds) = sleep(500)

2) waiting for a certain dialog / dialouge / menu / window thats apperar to focus.
the script goes on, if a certain window gets focus.
winwait & winwaitactive
an example here

3) bring a active window to focus / foreground:
Opt("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)

the already started notepad editor gets to foreground / back to focus
