OpenBor AttractMode
« on: November 23, 2020, 04:31:44 AM »
Good morning all,

I am currently installing the openbor which works fine with openbor.exe but in attractmode it opens openbor.exe for me and not the game directly.
How to do with the args line to directly open a game by openbor.exe.
here is my args for openbor.
thank you in advance.

this is what i did yesterday, but it doesn't work.
The first error is that Openbor.exe is not found, and the second a popup opens telling me that wait_for_ESC is not compatible with windows 64bits.
it does not work.

args                 /c cd E:\AttractMode\OpenBor\[name] & start OpenBOR.exe & start E:\AttractMode\OpenBor\wait_for_ESC.exe

romext                <DIR>

"first error is that Openbor.exe is not found"
in batch and commandline, you need a drive change before.

so expand the line like this:
Code: [Select]
args                 /c E: & cd E:\attract\EMU\OpenBOR\[name] & start OpenBOR.exe & start E:\attract\EMU\OpenBOR\wait_for_ESC.exe
just tested. works.


"popup opens telling me that wait_for_ESC is not compatible with windows 64bits"
-probably compiling problem, because of antivirus scanner
-something went wrong on compiling (copy & paste wasnt correct)
-use another scripting software (AHK and so on).
