how to exit model 2 emulator
« on: January 10, 2019, 07:57:06 PM »
Hi guys, I would like to know if there's a proper way to exit this Model 2 emulator.
I have to press ALT + F4 to exit it, but I want to do this only with a couple of buttons. I've used JoyToKey in the past, but I don't remember how to do this.
Also I want to use the ALT+F4 only for this emulator, because I have MAME too, and it's working fine.
I'm not sure if this is possible using just Attract Mode.

Something like this is what I need:

Press Button 1 + Button 2 (only in this emulator)---> exit Model 2 emulator (ALT + F4)

Thankss

Press Button 1 + Button 2 (only in this emulator)---> exit Model 2 emulator (ALT + F4)

In \emulators\[emulator name].cfg you can enter a line
exit_hotkey          Button1+Button2

Where Button1 & 2 are actual keyboard/ gamepad inputs. If that doesn't work and emulator has a built-in command for quitting you'll have to use JoytoKey or some variant.

You can make these changes from with AM (Options/ Settings > Emulators > [Emulator Name] > Exit Hot Key (Here you can input the keys). IF that doesn't work Antimicro is the best joytokey variant I have seen. Its available on both *nix and Windows platforms and can be tweaked to

1- point any joypad key press to keyboard
2- Start with a specific game and shutdown once game is quit via AM.

I'm using autoit for this.
By pushing SELECT + START + DPAD DOWN + L + R on a snes pad, the process OpenBOR.exe will be closed. (see section OPENBor here)



Source as follows here: ($coord[7] == "240" means the sum of L + R + START + SELECT together / simultaneously pressed (16 + 32 + 128 + 64 = 240 )

(thanks to Ejoc and Adam1213 for original and customized sourcecode and thanks to osrevad for Ascii-Art:

If you want to close a collection of emulator systems / more than one application:

create a file called : emulators.txt

fill it with the names of tasks from taskmanager. for example:

vlc.exe
zsnes.exe
scummvm.exe
notepad.exe
calc.exe

Code: [Select]

While 1
    Local $line = FileReadLine($file)
    If @error = -1 Then ExitLoop
;   MsgBox(0, "", $line)
ProcessClose ( $line )
WEnd
FileClose($file)
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; END EDIT HERE ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

all the enclosed tasks will be closed at the same time
