General / Re: Button to universally close emulators?
« on: September 25, 2021, 02:54:03 PM »
You don't need to press the button or combos, that the emulator provides/supports.
If you set an Exit Hotkey (or even a combination of buttons) in AM, AM kills the belonging executable.

for example the NES-emulator Mesen.
If you open a romfile with Mesen and press ESC => Mesen pause the emulation.

if you set ESC as Exit Hotkey in AM:
AM close the complete emulation.

open AM > press TAB-key > Emulators > choose your display > Exit Hotkey : press ESC

edit the screensaver.nut in line #158 (your_AM_folder\screensaver\screensaver.nut)

change:
MIN_TIME = 4000; // the minimum amount of time this mode should run for (in milliseconds)

to:
MIN_TIME = 10000; // the minimum amount of time this mode should run for (in milliseconds)

Themes / Re: Turbografx 16 mini

Not sure, what you want.
Attractmode is a frontend, which is available for different OS (See.
The mini consoles use an adapted Linux, but I think AM and its Themes aren't availabe for the mini consoles.

Emulators / Re: Amiga CD32
« on: August 30, 2021, 01:58:29 AM »
the spaces in your paths are awful.
unreadable for any support.

tested 'alien breed tower assault' a few moments ago.

.zip => works.
extracted to .bin and .cue => works.

See my settings here (see section : AMIGA CD32)

check your romfile. probably broken.

General / Re: Scraping only for missing art?
« on: August 30, 2021, 01:25:07 AM »
Just tested a few monents ago:

Scrape artwork for 40 rom-files: 5 seconds (40 files(s) downloaded)

delete one of the artworks and scrape again : 1 second (1 file(s) downloaded)

replaced an existing artwork with another artwork (which has nothing to do with the game) : 1 second (0 file(s) downloaded)

Seems that AM only replace missing files (and not existing).

@ gameroommedic
by pressing the Exit-Button, AM kills the program that you stored in the executable line.

executable           E:\emulators\TeknoParrot\TeknoParrotUi.exe
AM kills : TeknoParrotUi.exe

the problem with previous started emulator-UI / GUI is:
if UI/GUI closes, the games do not exit too (game still running).

>Different options (depends on emulator UI / GUI):



-Game stops with UI/GUI automatic

if UI/GUI closes, the game closes too.
depends on UI/GUI programming / coder.



-Exit-Button in UI/GUI:

Set Exit-Button in UI/GUI + Do NOT SET Exit-Button in AM.
if you press Exit-Button: GUI closes the game + GUI close itself + you return to AM.



-Set a after-script with taskkill / process-close / run after commands:

Use this plugin

use batch, autoit, autohotkey, whatever to make a taskkill / process-close.
close with this script your game.exe

like this:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
taskkill /F /IM "JoyToKey.exe"
taskkill /F /IM "notepad.exe"
taskkill /F /IM "myGame123.exe"
exit



-Set a before-script, that waits for specific key press:
use autoit, autohotkey, whatever to make a taskkill / process-close.

Like here

Uploading dubious .exe-files and not sourecode? :-)

I'm not using Teknoparrot.
Seems that this are the parameters in AM
Are your xml-files correct?
this plugin starts external scripts before and after emulator launch.
