use AHK, assign to your key...

Code: [Select]
$joy10:: ; my start button
{
keywait, joy10, t5
if errorlevel <> 0
{
Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} ;closes emulator
}
}

this is to hold for 5 sec,   replace with your emu.exe to end

First, IMO it's always best to set/configure the emulator exit buttons/keys in the emulator itself and not in the frontend. This is the logical way to exit an emulator properly.

Answer to #1 - This can't be done directly in Attract-Mode but can be done with a key/button emulator like JoyToKey https://joytokey.net/en/ or something similar.

Answer to #2 - Modify the \attractmode\default-emulator.cfg to contain your exit keys/buttons before creating the emulators.

BIG thanks my friend!!! you give a light!!!  ;) 

Than a pity that in AM does not have the option to HOLD for seconds for the exit hotkey to end the game and return to the AM, Because one person may accidentally click on the exit hotkey and the game will exit by accident, so I would like to configure this hotckey to come out only if I hold it for about 5 seconds, understand?

General / Black screen problems booting with AM 2.6.1.
« Last post by nellino on April 18, 2021, 06:46:41 AM »
Hello everybody

I have recently updated from version 2.2.1 to version 2.6.1 but many times when I start the frontend after the intro the shcermo freezes and goes black, I solve by deleting the attract.am file but after other starts it happens again

has this happened to anyone? should you go back to version 2.2.1? I can't understand why this happens

Windows 7 64bit

clic in >>exit shortcut key<< and you return to AM automatically
This is one of the most important functions and is what makes this front end so beautiful ^ - ^ ... YES, I LOVED IT !!!! AND LOVED VERY MUTCH!!! (for me its a best front-end in this moment)

But this use of the hotkey is not a "hack trick" that can cause problems in the future, right? is this use normal? Its ok i create a hotkey for every emulator ok?

Other SPECIAL thing to me...

1 - have a way or how i make a exit shortcut key "hotkey" not, click hotkey and back to AM... I need a hold hotkey for 5 seconds and there back to AM.. exist this way?

For example i HOLD START (button1) for 5 seconds and back to AM... you understand?

2 - Have a way to make a DEFAULT exit shortcut key "hotkey"? make a one by one its very tense with you have 200 emulators ^^

The ESC-keyboard-button was an example. you can set whatever you want.
Some emulators do not close properly. And you do not get back to AM.
Setting a exit-hotkey makes it easier.

So, what do the exit hotkey (Under each menu entry is always a small description of what exactly it does):
you play a game > you press the defined exit button(s) > the emulator exit instantly > you get back to AM automatically
This is one of the most important functions and is what makes this front end so pretty ^-^

you can set a single button or a combination of simultane pressed buttons (keyboard, joypad, ...)
please se attachments:
if you set B : if b is pressed, you get back to AM
if you set B+C : if you press b and c simultane, you get back to AM
if your set A+S+D+F : if you press a and s and d and f simultane, you get back to AM

clic in >>exit shortcut key<< and you return to AM automatically

Is it correct, that no exit button has been set?
For example the ESC-Button (or whatever):

executable           M:\Emulators\Sony Playstation\duckstation-windows-x64-release\duckstation.exe
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              N:\PlayStation\Games (US)
romext               .iso;.bin;.mdf;.img;.chd;.pbp
system               Sony Playstation
info_source          thegamesdb.net
exit_hotkey          Escape
artwork    boxart          $HOME/pcsx/boxart
artwork    snap            $HOME/pcsx/video;$HOME/pcsx/snap

Hummm ok MAN!! only one doboult... every emulator needs i put this exit_hotkey          Escape ????????

try the 'no gui' version of the emulator for attract mode and see if that solves your problem.

Yeah i use nogui version.. look:
