Help with emulator AAE i use this aae.exe but...

Help with emulator AAE i use this aae.exe but...

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1
#
executable           M:\Emulators\AAE\aae.exe
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              M:\Emulators\AAE\roms
romext               .zip
artwork    flyer           $HOME/vetor/boxart
artwork    marquee         
artwork    snap            $HOME/vetor/videos;$HOME/vetor/snap
artwork    wheel

Wheen i load the game in attract appears this:



its the "menu" from aae.exe but i need attract loads zip directly, and not load GUI menu and go straight to the game selected? understand me?

The AAE page says "run AAE.EXE to start the built-in GUI, or aae  gamename to run a specific game. "  :-\

On this page, it seems that filename works (without path and without file extension). Here
On this page, it seems that you have to copy romfiles to ROMS directory or edit aae.ini Here

so, please try to start a romfile successful from commandline/batch, before adding to AM:
-press START > execute > cmd
-try this :

"M:\Emulators\AAE\aae.exe" "filename_of_a_zip-file"

or

maybe you have to be in working directory of aae.exe:

type this command first:
cd "M:\Emulators\AAE"

type this command then:
"aae.exe" "filename_of_a_zip-file"
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

The matter of testing files at the file level first (cmd, batch, and so on) will come up more often to you.
That is part of this kind of project
So: no and good luck.

This is the correct argument.

Code: [Select]
args                 [name]

make sure your \aae\aae.ini shows this or the correct path to these files, also make sure that your \attractmode\emulators\aae.cfg has the correct path
Code: [Select]
[main]

mame_rom_path = M:\Emulators\AAE\roms


make sure you have the correct romset or version of the roms needed for your aae emulator

try a few different game to make sure it isn't a an issue with a specific game

take hermine.potter's advice and test on the command line

The AAE page says "run AAE.EXE to start the built-in GUI, or aae  gamename to run a specific game. "  :-\

1. Change arg to "[name]"
2. Add the rom path in aae.ini (present in aae directory root). mame_rom_path = "Path\to\Roms"
3. If above doesn't work then change rompath in AM emulator.cfg to: M:\Emulators\AAE\roms\
4. If that too doesn't work make sure that roms are correct some MAME roms won't run on AAE. Google for AAE specific sets.

In aae.ini use windowed =0 (or use windowed=1 and change the screenw (width) and screenh (height) to match your resolution i.e. screenw = 1920, screenh =1080 for hd)
