use emulator windows_games with windows-shortcuts

1) create a link-file of mugen.exe
2) create a folder links (or something else)
3) start AM and configure the emulator windows_games
4) add your links folder as rom-path
5) check .lnk is set as a rom-extension (lnk means link). if not, add it.
6) generate rom list

btw:
mugen is included in paintown too

Not sure of the config

here is mine:

executable           D:\attracmoded151\windows-games\promelium.exe  (this is a shortcut)
args                 /c "[romfilename]"
rompath              D:\attracmoded151\windows-games  (folder pointing to shortcut)
romext               .lnk;.bat
system               PC
info_source          thegamesdb.net


Not sure what to do with args so I left it unchanged

Thanks

This is very frustrating.. why do I really need to do a bunch of configurations just to run a .exe file that do not use roms. I use Steam to run non Steam games and all it ask me is to point to the .exe file.

please do what members you tell. creating link-files/shortcuts of your .exe and use the windows-games emulator is the trick and an easy solution. so you do not have to setting up a 'bunch of configurations'.

i see. what you use is not mugen directly. this is m.u.g.e.n

promelium is a motifs/modification/skin-map-pack for mugen. and that's a little bit tricky to use, because it's not possible to start mugen the common way like another execution-files.

usually it's possible to start an .exe this way (but this doesn't work in this case with mugen.exe) : path_to_exe\file.exe -parameters
you have to use this syntax : cd path_to_exe & file.exe -parameters

this is my config for mugen & it works:

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode 1.5.3
#
executable           cmd
args                 /c cd C:\attract\EMU\mugen & mugen.exe -r [name]
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\mugen\data
romext               <DIR>
system               PC

1) create a folder (in your case promelium)
2) unzip all files from promelium-zip-file; copy all these files in the root of this folder (see screenshot enclosed)
3) move the folder to C:\attract\EMU\mugen\data
4) configure AM
