omegaman, you  are doing some great things with the themes you are putting out. Unfortunately I can't use the latest stuff until the flv snap video bug gets fixed since all my vids are flv. My cab is still running AM 1.4 and most all of the newer themes out there don't want to run on that version. But I am downloading all the stuff you put out in preparation. Keep them coming!

Unfortunately the resfix plugin did not seem to impact anything. I added pac-man championship dx as a windows game to the list. That game exits properly back to attractmode no issues.

I also created a separate romlist with just windows games to make sure it wasn't something weird because I had Fix it felix in with other mame games list.

This one is an interesting problem. I am not at all convinced this has anything to do with attractmode at this point. Just posting here to see if anybody else had a similar issue.


General / Problem exiting one game

I am running AM on my cabinet (CRT, Groovymame, Win 7, etc) and have had a great time so far. I decided to put Fix it Felix Jr on using The wrapper Howard_Castro put together:,135805
I am setup using the windows_games emulator as suggested on the boards here. My "rom" is just the shortcut (.lnk) file.

The game runs fine. My problem is only when it exits. I get stuck with the taskbar visible over the top of AttractMode (running the fill screen option as suggested) and the focus being stuck on the taskbar. This is the only game I seem to be having an issue with. I have replicated this problem with both versions 1.5.3 and 1.4.

The weird thing is I have no issues with this on my desktop. I built the config on the desktop then copied all the pertinent files over to the cabinet and then the issue popped up. The cabinet is really just a plain win 7 load  with AM, groovymame and drivers. I have also tried setting win 7 to basic vs aero, auto hide the taskbar, ensure no other programs are running (just AM and the accompanying cmd window).

Really appreciate any help. Hopefully this is something simple. Thanks
