General / Suggestions...

I love AttractMode, thanks!

I'd like to offer a suggestion.

How about a most played games menu?
A menu that just lists the top 100 (or # to be set)  played games.

Also, is there something in AttractMode to do key combinations?

Solution to the lose focus upon exit problem n W10 is to use the Attract Mode Exit hotkey to escape Mame games and not the Mame esc/key to exit Mame games.   I have a cabinet and leave the mame esc button set to the esc key but use another key set to the Attract Mode exit hot key.  Works fine.  The problem is when the two, Mame and AM have the same key assigned to esc..

Same problem here. 
Attract loses focus upon exiting mame in Windoze 10.
Have to click mouse to get it back.
Tried advice above, no dice.

Any suggestions welcome and appreciated.

Thanks for your reply.

I thought that at first too, but it's the general input settings that get changed.

After a while, you start questioning yourself "did I change the general or game specific?" then you really don't know...



General / Mame Ini file changes on it's own?
« on: May 15, 2016, 06:12:30 AM »

Hello all,

This might be a Mame issue and not an Attract Mode issue, I'm not sure...

I have a cabinet with mame 173 and Attract Mode.  Every once in a while, the Mame ini file changes back to default on it's own?  When you go to play the next game nothing enters because the keys have been defaulted back.  Then, I got to go back to Mame and reconfig the button assignments back to my preference that work in the cabinet specifically the coin, enter and esc assignments and save it in Mame and then I'm good until the next time it happens.  I've tried making the Mame.ini a read only file but that seems not to work?

I'm not sure if it's Attract Mode rewriting the files or Mame or some mix match?
Any suggestions are welcome.

Press TAB then General > Exit Command and add:

Code: [Select]
shutdown -s -t 00
Works on XP can't say if it works for 10

Worked like a charm!

General / Power Off Option for PC?
« on: May 08, 2016, 06:53:20 PM »

I would like to suggest a power off option/button for Attract.  It would be very convenient to have a way to shutdown the Pc inside my cabinet from the frontend  possibly with a key stroke combination and or delay press.   If there is one and I haven't seen it I apologize in advance.

P.S.  I have just discovered Attract and love it.  I was a Mala fan but that seems not to work anymore, as do most of the others (at least on W10). 

Thanks to all involved and active here in the forums.
