FightCade 2 in Attract Mode
« on: March 09, 2020, 05:46:16 AM »
Hi Guys I would like to use combat in my systems wheel to Attract mode, I loaded the cfg file like this:

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1
#
executable           H:\Fightcade\Fightcade2.exe
args                 /c "[romfilename]"
workdir              H:\Fightcade
rompath              H:\Fightcade\roms
romext               .bat;.lnk;.zip
system               Fightcade
exit_hotkey          Escape
artwork    flyer           E:\artwork\flyer\Wingame
artwork    marquee         H:\Fightcade\wheel
artwork    snap            H:\Fightcade\video;H:\Fightcade\snap
artwork    wheel           H:\Fightcade\wheel

in this way I launch fightcade 2 but I can't see it in the foreground and in fullscreen.

looking on the net I found this but I still haven't figured out how to fix it, do I have to create a plugin to make it work properly?

qualcuno di voi ci รจ riuscito?

I'm not using fightcade.
But using a seach engine, you will find this script

in codeline #43 and #44 it seems, that it uses fcadefba.exe with parameter -w.
it seems, that it's a modified version of final burn alpha (fba.exe).

looking at fba manual, the parameter -w is window.
thats probably the reason, why its not fullscreen.
