I have successfully launched Naomi/Naomi 2 and AtomisWave decrypted roms via Attractmode :

I have configured Demul in fullscreen, rompath and other settings, and I have used Naomi.cfg (as example) in emulators folder :

Code: [Select]
executable        cmd
args            /c "[romfilename]"
rompath     D:\Arcade\EMU\Naomi
romext      .bat
system     Arcade
exit_hotkey     Escape

artwork flyer          D:\Arcade\artwork\Naomi\flyer
artwork marquee D:\Arcade\artwork\Naomi\marquee
artwork video        D:\Arcade\artwork\Naomi\video
artwork wheel       D:\Arcade\artwork\Naomi\wheel

Then I have made a .bat for each decrypted rom in D:\Arcade\EMU\Naomi (decrypted rom Ken Ju .bat as example) :
Code: [Select]
@echo off
cd "D:\Arcade\EMU\Naomi\Demul"
start "" "demul.exe" -run=naomi -customrom="D:\Arcade\EMU\Naomi\Demul\roms\Kenju.bin"

Well, I tried two arguments, they were,
  [name] -skip_gameinfo and "[name]".
both do not open anything. I am trying to use version "mamepgui" 0.168, I would like to use this version because of the beautiful image filters it provides! Is there no way to make it work? :(

Playstation 3 [RPCS3]

I have this directory structure :
mbox [the base directory, mean "Mentat Box" if you want to know]
 -attractmode
 -bin [emulators: mame, retroarch, pcsx2...]
 -data [roms, boxart, snap, videos, wheel...]

ATTENTION: This list only the disc games, not the HDD games in rpcs3.

Sony Playstation 3.cfg

Check the FullScreen option in rpcs3 options.
The exit_hotkey is Select+Start on my DualShock 4.

cmd batch file startup commands for passing parameters over network UNC
« Reply #97 on: June 18, 2021, 01:21:24 AM »
executable           cmd
args                     /k ""[rompath]..\..\emustarters\startemulation.cmd" ..\RetroArch\retroarch.exe ..\RetroArch\cores\mesen-s_libretro.dll "[rompath][name][romext]" "%USERPROFILE%\.RetroArch\config\snes.cfg""

I hope this serves someone well. It took hours of testing and study to find out that /K was the only way to allow cmd to use parentheses when passing the parameters. This is on a server.  Look at the extra outer parenthesis and the fact that I can use local config settings for each station I have running... needed for layouts that require unique settings depending on which size monitor/screen it's on.

This results in passing unlimited parameters for use with cmd or bat or whatever you code. I can now run other apps simultaneously for each emulator... I need this for TopGun 2 II guns where the analog input has to be converted to mouse....  one player only  :( for now. I'll be using antimicro portable off the server too.

Hi someone can help me, I can't start snes msu-1 with retroarch, I always start the same procedure, I have checked several times and everything seems correct but when I try to launch I am left with the black screen, possible that I have to use an arg different? out of retroarch it works quietly, not all games start but when I try to launch even with different (working) cores the games do not start

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1

executable           N:\RetroArch\Retroarch.exe
args                 -f -L cores\bsnes_hd_beta_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
workdir              N:\RetroArch
rompath              N:\Super Nintendo Entertainment System MSU 1\Roms\
romext               <DIR>;.sfc
system               Super Nintendo Entertainment System MSU-1
exit_hotkey          Joy0 Button10

Having trouble setting commands (executable and args sections) for OGST (XU4)
« Reply #103 on: October 21, 2021, 11:25:59 AM »
Hello everyone. I would like to know the commands (executable and args sections) that should be used for FBA, NES, SNES, Turbografx-16, Turbografx-CD, PlayStation, PSP, Genesis, Sega Master System, MSX, Neo-Geo, Neo-Geo CD, ColecoVision, Atari 2600, Gameboy Advance, N64, and the Sega Dreamcast emulators. I am trying to set each of these within Attract Mode, but I don't know how to do this correctly. I'm trying to get all of this sorted out to get it working on the OGST. If anyone can give me some ideas, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.  :D
