General / Re: PC not working

Side note - Curious if you ever had issues with the fan coming off. I always disliked the intel stock fans that use the plastic clip system. Also if you arent getting error beeps, it could simply be the mother board doesnt have the little speaker hooked to it.

Does the mother board have a battery installed on it? like a watch battery, you could try removing and placing it back to reset the bios.

General / Graphics card not detected?
« on: February 25, 2019, 06:57:18 AM »
So this has happened to me twice and I can't quite figure out what is going on. I have a game that runs perfectly (Windows executable) and then I get it goin on attract mode. Next thing I know I would try to load it into attract mode and it tells me that the game doesnt detect a graphics card. I try running the game outside of attract mode and it runs just fine. I was considering trying to run the game with an AHK. Anyway I plan on reinstalling the game and going from there.

Now I must admit that it could be an issue with my hardware. I have recently replaced the motherboard, proc and video card in my set up to upgrade the whole thing. In an attempt to fix another issue I was having. Does attract mode keep up with old hardware configurations?

Please also note that I copied my attract mode from my old hardrive on to a fresh install of windows.

General / video/audio snap out of sync
« on: February 11, 2019, 11:38:43 AM »
I honestly cant fathom why this is occurring but all my videos on my main menu will eventually get out of sync with the audio. Its really driving me crazy. It was all working fine until I moved my computer into the actually arcade cabinet. I can play the videos in a media player and they play normal with out sync issues. I dont know if I messed up some settings or what, but the hardware in the machine is more than capable of playing these videos with no issue. Games all run just fine. Any help would be wonderful.

Scripting / Re: Running a .ahk script

So I pointed my Executable at the AHK program. Then I added some extra code since my original script closed after it ran which actually causes attract mode to wake back up. It is all working now but here is the final script just in case someone is interested.

Run, DELTARUNE.exe, C:\Program Files (x86)\SURVEY_PROGRAM, max
sleep, 3000
Send {F4}
KeyWait, Joy12, D
WinClose, ahk_exe DELTARUNE.exe

gotcha, so I need to only run the AHK file.. Thank you this helps I will tinker with that and see if that fixes it. By replacing the deltarune executable with the AHK executable.

Scripting / Running a .ahk script
« on: December 25, 2018, 04:30:12 PM »
I am sure I am doing this wrong but here is what is going on.

I am opening up deltarune and trying to get the script to hit F4 to full screen it. Now the script works just fine if I run it straight from the desktop. However it definitly is giving me issues through Attractmode. As it opens the game but will not seem to Hit F4

Executable C:\Program Files (x86)\SURVEY_PROGRAM\DELTARUNE.exe
Working Directory C:\Program Files (x86)\SURVEY_PROGRAM
Rom paths  C:\Users\MyriadArcade\Desktop\Attract Mode\attract-v2.4.1-win64\emulators\DeltaRune
Rom extensions .ahk

And here is the script file

Run, DELTARUNE.exe, C:\Program Files (x86)\SURVEY_PROGRAM, max
Sleep, 3000
Controlsend,,{F4}, ahk_exe DeltaRune.exe

Which again runs just fine from the desktop but not with attractmode. I am certain I am calling the AHK file wrong but I am still learning the ropes here. Any advise would be welcome.

General / Re: Flash Executable Files
« on: November 08, 2018, 12:21:51 PM »
See that is the problem, running it the standard way IE like a windows exe file the game doesn't come up. Instead I get just the flash player with nothing loaded. I find it quite strange. I guess my only solution at this point is to just rip the SWF file some somewhere and run it as a flash game period. Thank you again for your help.

General / Re: Joy2Key with Attractmode

I have joy2key and attractmode start up when I first boot my machine (using a Bat file), then joy2key switches profiles depending on the game I have running.

I appreciate the info, but reading through it I do believe it is referring to running an actual flash file (SWF). I am running a EXE file that just so happened to be compiled using flash. I will tinker with this but I don't believe its going to quite work as intended by the instructions given.

General / Flash Executable Files
« on: November 01, 2018, 06:07:19 AM »
I have been working on my arcade setup and understand how to get EXE files running by using .lnk files as the rom call. However I have been trying to get Abobo's Big Adventure running. It runs fine on its own but through attract mode it simply opens the flash player and does nothing. Any advice on this or is this just not possible to run properly in attract mode?
