Supermodel .bat issues
« on: September 15, 2023, 11:02:10 AM »
Hi all, I have a Supermodel installation that works flawlessly on AM, but recently I acquired a Sinden light gun, so I had to make some changes for the four lightgun compatible games from the system (LA Machineguns, Lost World, Star Wars Trilogy and Ocean Hunter). These changes included installing ReShade and creating a .bat file for each game in order to activate Sinden Gun screen border.

So, once I created and tested the .bat files I wanted to add them to AM, first thing I did was create an "emulator" for each one, then copy the game lists to the Supermodel romlist, and then deleted the displays. Awesome, all the Model 3 games are in their respective emulator category and can be launched via AM.

HERE IS THE ISSUE. When launching the .bat games, the game starts with the border and bezel as intended, but AM keeps sounding in the background, you can still hear the video snap shots sound, and the joystick and gun imputs also affect the front end, so you could accidentally start another game/emulator.

Also, the "Exit" hotkey assigned button combination remains irresponsive, the only way to close the game is via escape key in the keyboard, and sometiomes even that doesn't work, and the game needs to be closed via task manager.

I am totally at lost here. Any ideas on how to solve this? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My configuration:

.bat file for LA Machineguns:

Quote
ECHO OFF

cd /d "%~dp0"

DEL .\reshade-shaders\Textures\Bezel.png
DEL .\reshade-shaders\Textures\Bezel_off.png

COPY .\Artwork\lamachin.png .\reshade-shaders\Textures\Bezel.png
COPY .\Artwork\lamachin.png .\reshade-shaders\Textures\Bezel_off.png

START Supermodel.exe lamachin.zip -fullscreen -res=1360,768

EXIT

AM configuration for this specific game:

Quote
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1

executable           K:\Emuladores\Sega Model 3 GUN\LA Machineguns.bat
args                 "[romfilename]" -fullscreen

artwork    snap            K:\Emuladores\Sega Model 3 GUN\Model3 Videosnap
artwork    wheel           K:\Emuladores\Sega Model 3 GUN\Model3 Wheel

All the emulator/roms/.bat files are in the same root folder, as per Sinden Wiki indications.




Thanks in advance!

The AM focus was solved, I fixed it with the option "Non-Blocking Mode Wait" in the emulator menu set to 1 instead of 0.

This issue persists though, any help would be appreciated.

Maybe ReShade is blocking something?
