Autostart game when starting attract mode
« on: July 23, 2019, 07:58:31 AM »
Im trying to figure out how to get attract mode to autostart a certain nes game every time I turn on the system. Im using the mesen emulator and I currently have attract mode set to launch last game. Im trying to figure out how attract mode knows what the last game is then find a way to lock it to the game I want.  I thought it might be the last_run.log file but changing that does not seem to do it. Anyone have any ideas?

I may have found a way to do it. It looks like the "last game" info is stored in attract.am. I cannot edit this but if I make it read only after closing with the game I want to autostart all is good. Any negatives to making attract.am read only?
