General / Re: Running DICE with Attract Mode
« on: April 13, 2015, 10:32:20 PM »
Another way is, that the emulator dice supports his own parameters starting games:
path_to_dice\dice.exe name_of_game

antiaircraft
attack
breakout
cleansweep
crashnscore
crossfire
gotcha
jetfighter
hiway
indy4
pinpong
pong
pongdoubles
quadrapong
rebound
sharkjaws
spacerace
steeplechase
stuntcycle
tvbasketball
wipeout

So you can create links to dice.exe and set as target the desired game as a parameter:
path_to_dice\dice.exe pong

in AM (attractmode)
Executable : cmd
Command Arguments : /c "[romfilename]"
Rom Path(s) : path_to_your_links
Rom Extension(s) : .lnk

General / Re: Starting a batch file.
« on: April 10, 2015, 02:04:36 AM »
my three advices:

1) global-settings for all dosbox-games could be found there:
%localappdata%\DOSBox\dosbox-0.74.conf


2) individual settings for each game separate:
- copy the global-settings file of 1) & rename it (e.g. your_game.conf)

- Edit your_game.conf on [autoexec]-section and set following parameters:
Code: [Select]
mount c: path_to_your_game.exe_on_your_filesystem
c:\
your_game.exe

-Create a .bat-file :
Code: [Select]
@echo off
"Path_to_DOSBox\dosbox.exe" -conf "Path_to_conf-file\your_game.conf"


3) create Links and use parameters
- On your game-.exe/.bat > right mouse button > send to > create link (to desktop) > Properties

- use the following parameters in Target:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
"Path_to_DOSBox\dosbox.exe" "path_to_your_game\game.exe" -exit -fullscreen

- then notice the advice of raygun in post#5 : create rom-list for .bat or .lnk-files

but when I exit the game AM it still hangs?
the -exit parameter should do it for you.

General / Re: Any way to hide the console window?
« on: April 08, 2015, 01:36:21 AM »
there is perhaps a way:

usually you can starting programs minimized with a batch file:
Code: [Select]
start /min path_to_exe\exe_file.exe
but attract doesn't work with this solution. It starts minimized but the attract-mode-windows starts minimized too and shows only a black screen. i think this is a bug.

so try this:
- download the software autosizer
- assign attract.exe with action : minimize

General / Re: Setting up Windows Games
« on: March 26, 2015, 05:57:16 AM »
easiest way with windows-shortcuts (.lnk-files) :
1) create a folder called links or something like that
2) create shortcuts from your exe-files (right mouse button > send to > desktop
3) move the created shortcuts (.lnk-files) to created links folder
4) start attract and configure emulator : windows_games
5) configure the rompath to your link-folder (e.g. C:\attract\emulator\windows_games\links)
6) create rom list

General / emulator cover / automatic cover download
« on: December 11, 2014, 01:44:13 AM »
hi there!
awesome frontend. thank you.
i use different emulators e.g. zsnes, vice and so on.
simple question, but i don't have a solution:
where can i get covers automatically from my inserted rom-files / is there an automatic way to download covers from added games / not adding covers manually (looking like this http://attractmode.org/images/cools2.png)?
