Argument for MESS emulator (Color Computer + GX4000) ?
« on: October 15, 2019, 08:14:27 AM »
Good morning all !

I would like the arguments for the emulator MESS to launch the Color Computer & the GX4000 ?

MESS is already very complicated I hope it is possible to launch games from Attract Mode ?

Is there a database for Attract Mode that groups all the arguments of all emulators ?

Thanks best regards !

Hello !

For the GX4000 I found this so I added the following argument

Code: [Select]
executable           e:\emulateurs\mess\messui 0.213\messui64.exe
args                 gx4000 -cart "[romfilename]"
rompath              e:\jeux\gx4000
romext               .bin

Unfortunately MESS launches but not the games why ?

Thanks best regards !

Make sure you have the correct rom path(s) set in your mess.ini (or mame.ini). This is done in the emulator and isn't part of AM but it's needed to work.
