Various emulator settings
« on: December 23, 2015, 11:17:30 AM »
I am going to list some findings I made when setting up the cabinet. I am planning to update this as I learn more.

Fusion:
Use
-fullscreen "[romfilename]"
command line argument to ensure escape exits the emulator instead of switching between fullscreen and windowed.

Download the "fusion shader pack" http://www.emucr.com/2013/04/kega-fusion-plugins-20130427.html extract to plugins, start emulator, right click, video->render plugin->double snake to apply a 2x prescale and reduce blurring.

Finalburn Alpha:
select blitter -> enhanced, blitter options -> enable prescale to reduce blurring

Retroarch:
command line arguments example for higan (bsnes):
-f -L P:\emulators\retroarch\cores\bsnes_balanced_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"

load a game, press F1->quick menu->shader options->load shader preset->retro/sharp-bilinear.cg, then select shader 0 filter->nearest, shader0 scale ->2x or 4x to minimize blurring

Visualboyadvance-M-WX:
use these lines in vbam.ini before [GB] to enable prescale and keep aspect.
[Display]
Bilinear=1
Filter=simple4x
FilterPlugin=
IFB=none
KeepOnTop=0
MaxThreads=1
RenderMethod=opengl
Scale=3
Stretch=1

FS-UAE:
for KG whdload packs, use executable
FS-UAE\Windows\fs-uae-launcher.exe
and the standard argument "[romfilename]"
to load whdload packs. Just unzip all the whdload packs to get the .lha files.
Use rom extension .lha and fs-uae-launcher.exe will automatically setup and boot the whd load game. Put whdload.key in the fs-uae directory to get rid of the nag screens. whdload.key is expensive, but worth it.

Nice find :D

Future Pinball

executable          C:/Future Pinball/Future Pinball.exe
args                     /open "[romfilename]" /play /exit
rompath              C:/Future Pinball/tables/
romext                .fpt


Set compatibility mode to "Windows XP".

ePSXe this emulator works fine but I don't know how to launch with AM. Is there a command line argument I need to add. I would imagine it would be the same command line argument I would need to add so I can run Makaron. PLEASE HELP?

@xev1in
e.g. zsnes (so adapt it to ePSXe and correct parameters):

path_to_your_emulator_system\emulator_system.exe -parameters_that_starts_a_rom path_to_your_roms\romfile.rom_extension

this command-line starts a specific snes-game directly:
C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\zsnesw.exe -m C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\roms\my_snes_game.smc

In AM use this config:
executable           C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\zsnesw.exe
args                 -m "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\roms
romext               .smc
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

Sorry that doesn't work it just blinks the cmd prompt window but does not launch the game. I've tried with .bin file and tried a .zip, both do the same thing.

-Post your settings

-always and for all further emulator systems:
1) check your execution-command, paths and parameters with a specific game in cmd-window before
if you wrote this line in command window, zsnes starts the specific game my_snes_game
"C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\zsnesw.exe" -m "C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\roms\my_snes_game.smc"
=> if it starts : go to step 2)
=> if not : go to step 1) again and check correct parameters and so on

2) transfer your execution-command, paths and parameters to AM-settings:
C:\attract\EMU\zsnes\zsnesw.exe = executable
my_snes_game = [romfilename]
.smc = romext
and so on

So wrote your command, path and parameters to cmd-window (with a specific psx-game (.bin, .iso., .img)) and eleminate errors step by step.
