fadetogame plugin used on teknoparrot help
« on: March 05, 2020, 03:54:38 PM »
Hi Guys,
Just wondering if it is possible to setup the fadetogame plugin to show a loading screen while teknoparrot is loading in the background. As some of these games take a while to load..Thanks.

No. For a true loading screen, attract source would have to be modified or autohotkey used. Even then, I would assume you are using a timer instead of a hook given by emulator. Unless it generates a window on load.?

That is not a true loading screen, and it is very poorly written with copy/paste and changing the alpha of every object in attract draw list to 0/255.

I have tried that one but dosn't work for me, would be nice if something like that was implemented. works fine for mame as loads faster so you don't have that delay as the screen loads. Thanks Anyway.

RocketLauncher is complex and overkill for what you want but it will give you a loading screen with progress (and a lot more) but it only works with Windows.
