General / SSF emulator with SSFLoader plugin
« on: June 24, 2019, 12:31:46 AM »
Hello there,

First of all, thank you everybody involved with AM and it's themes, amazing frontend.
What i'm trying to accomplish is this:

I've got SSF emulator for Saturn which runs great for low end devices. Since i have some troubles with virtual devices, i'm using SSFLoader plugin to use CHD Saturn game format instead of a CD drive.
The SSFLoader plugin goes to the same folder as SSF, it's just an executable that launches SSF and then closes, leaving SSF open and running the game, and here's the problem. AM returns to the main "Saturn screen" when SSFLoader terminates.

It's not an AM problem since it's configured to load SSFLoader, but when SSFLoader does his job of opening SSF with the game, it closes, and AM sees the execution is over and returns to the game selection screen.

There is any way to accomplish this? Make AM to open an executable that opens another executable and instead of waiting the first one to close (SSFLoader), wait for the "child process" (SSF)?

The saturn.cfg containts this:
executable           cmd
args                 /c SSFLoader.exe C:\roms\saturn\[name].chd
workdir              C:\ssf
rompath              C:\roms\saturn
romext               .chd

Thank you.
