attract mode openbor
« on: January 13, 2021, 09:34:37 PM »

i am about 4 days researching how to put openbor in attract mode i found a tutorial with all the emulators here but i was not satisfied with the result, just to put only one game in the emulator?


i didn't find a way to put more than one game could someone tell me how do i do this?


what am i doing wrong? if someone sends me an example of attract mode with two openbor games ready to run for me to study it, it would help me a lot  ,
sorry my english i'm brazilian using a translator.

look

@ glaysonmestre
your emulator settings are hard coded with a static path that points to a single game:
/c cd C:\arcade...\OpenBOR\SFFGP
Of course you get with this setup only one game.

1) use seperate gamefolder each game.
so in each folder is a own OpenBOR.exe and only one .pak, .spk, whatelse to find

for my two example games : Golden Axe Legends and Golden Axe Myth



2) edit your emulator config in AM (because it is not correct):
If you want to add dynamic files detection, you have to use variables/parameters that attractmode unterstand : [name]
/c cd C:\arcade...\OpenBOR\[name]

See my config here (Section OpenBOR)
AM Version : 2.6.1
Input : Mad Catz Brawlstick; Mouse; Keyboard; Xbox360 Wireless
Cabinet : Yes
OS : Windows10 Pro
System : Dell Precision T3500 ; Intel X5650 ; 12GB RAM

I
got it thank you, each game uses an openbor executable? don't you think this is a little too polluted? wouldn't there be a way to use just one executable, would a shortcut of the executable in each game not work?
