Running Attract Mode through Steam (RESOLVED)
« on: January 03, 2020, 05:48:13 PM »
I am attempting to run AttractMode through Steam as a non-steam application.

I am doing this so I can leverage Steam Controller profiles.

Unfortunately, when I go to launch any game it fails to do so, the log shows it running the command, but nothing happens.

Code: [Select]
- Working directory: U:\Emulation\MAME_LOVE
*** Running: U:\Emulation\MAME_LOVE\mame64.exe sokyugrt
 - Working directory: U:\Emulation\MAME_LOVE
*** Running: U:\Emulation\MAME_LOVE\mame64.exe s1945

When running AttractMode outside of Steam, everything launches properly.

Suggestions?

EDIT:
The problem lies within MAME, not AttractMode.  In order to launch MAME appropriately through stream you must use these commandline arguments.

Code: [Select]
-joystickprovider xinput -keyboardprovider win32
