Ikaruga (Nesica) doesn't start on Attract Mode
« on: June 23, 2021, 11:07:45 AM »
Hello,
i'm configuring some ArcadePc Games, and i simply start them via batch files. I use in those batchfiles to launch just the game.exe or Game Loader or TeknoParrot and it works fine.

I just have an issue with Ikaruga (Nesica), seem starting but then i come back to frontend. If i use the batch it works like a charm.
Have you been able to run it via AM ? I tried to launch it via Launchbox and it works fine.

Let me know if it's the case to spend time on it or not. Thanks

It's only this specific game or all games?
Did you already add any batch files to AM and are able to start successful a game/batch-file?
Please post your AM-settings and content of batch-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

It's just this game! All the arcade pc games are working

i'm using this setting "nb_mode_wait         5" but i tried with 0,1,2,3,4

Do you use arcadepc games with Attract Mode ?

please check : your_AM_folder\romlists\your_emulator.txt
and post the complete line (something like this):
Ikaruga;Ikaruga;YourEmulator;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

jedione say it!
And with this plugin, you are able to start external scripts before emulator launch. and after emulator exit (if necessary).
AM Version : 2.6.1
Input : Mad Catz Brawlstick; Mouse; Keyboard; Xbox360 Wireless
Cabinet : Yes
OS : Windows10 Pro

artwork    marquee         
artwork    snap            $HOME/TeknoParrot/videos;$HOME/TeknoParrot/snap
artwork    wheel           

Thanks this is useful in the case i'd like to set a TeknoParrot section under AM , but TP has a lot of limitations (according to my user experiences).

I use this plugin for other purposes and testing with Ikaruga.before.bat works fine , but this scenario is a bit borderline because AM executes this command launching Ikaruga and then the "not working" command

Z:\attract-v2.6.1-win64\games\PC\Ikaruga>start "" "Game Loader All RH.exe"
execute -> "Z:\attract-v2.6.1-win64\extras\Pc\before.Ikaruga.bat" "Ikaruga" "Pc"
*** Running: cmd /c "games/PC/Ikaruga.bat"


The scope of this thread is helping users that try to run "gamewithnospace".bat with a configuration similar to the one i posted above. If it's not working, just add a space into game name "gamewithspace .bat"
