Full screen Gens
« on: October 12, 2018, 06:31:20 PM »
No rom loaded and I can not make it go full screen at the start. Why?
I read an old thread on the subject but I have not found the solution.

My AM gens.cfg:

executable   D:\ATTRACT\Emulators\Sega Genesis\ gens.exe
args                 --fs --quickexit "[romfilename]"
rompath           D:\ATTRACT\Emulators\Sega Genesis\Roms
romext             .zip; .smd; .md; .bin
system             Sega Genesis
And the other image routes...

Thanks, and sorry for my english  :-[

Note: [In some cases I get an error window : lpdd>createsurface ]

you should test your settings in commandline / cmd before entering in AM:

you'll see that your paths won't work (spaces in names making problems; AM is case sensitive (under windows, you won't be able to create a folder with spaces at the beginning and ending)
correct path:
D:\ATTRACT\Emulators\Sega Genesis\gens.exe

your parameters are not correct placed:
correct :
"[romfilename]" --fs --quickexit

use Fusion

Okay. Fusion is best, incredible comparison between both. Fullscreen it works at the first test in Fusion. Thanks! =)
