General / [HELP] Displays Menu Options...
« on: June 19, 2020, 05:52:59 PM »
So I want to have 4 displays in the displays menu
1. Arcade
2. Consoles
3. Handhelds
4. Other
So I know how to setup a displays menu where I can chose say Consoles and it takes me to a list to chose console NES or SNES or Genesis Etc. and then that selection will take me into the game display that matches that system.

What I want to be able to do though is choose consoles and it shows me ONLY consoles defined in the romlist with the games. I can successfully setup 3 tiers (1. categories 2. systems 3. games) Essentailly I want to skip tier 2. where it's 1 Consoles 2. All the consoles with all the games up/down for game within certain console and left right for other consoles then when I press escape it takes me back to the 4 choice listed above. Is this possible?

General / Dolphin rom path issue...
« on: May 23, 2020, 02:35:34 PM »
I have had dolphin setup for a while but I am trying to not have to specify the drive letter, I am trying to get it to look at the home path .\

This works:
workdir              ./dolphin
rompath              E:\NewARCADE\DOLPHIN\GAMES

This doesn't:
workdir              ./dolphin
rompath              ./dolphin/games

However this works in mame emulator:
workdir              .\mame
rompath              .\mame\roms

General / Romlist?
« on: December 05, 2018, 07:36:55 AM »
Any way to create a rom list based off games that are actually shown in AM? What I want to do is create a mame set using only the 700 games that are shown in my mame view. There are filters that are hiding the other thousands of unused games from view but I want to actually see what roms and path AM is opening on only these 700 games.

General / Taito Type X
« on: January 30, 2017, 04:16:21 AM »
So i am running Windows 10 64bit. AM 2.2.1. I have Taito Type X running with exe as cmd line: C:/windows/system32/cmd.exe and it points to links of my TTX games. this works fine for launching the games, however when I try to exit the game it crashes AM. I have my exit hotkey in AM set to 3 and I have tried setting the exit key in TTX to 3 or escape or any key but it crashes AM no matter what I chose. Any ideas maybe perhaps another way to setup the emulator. Is there a way to launch TTX exe and add command line arguments from the TTX FE? I know people are using RocketLauncher but I really don't want to go that route if I don't have to. Please and Thank You.

General / System Sub-menu
« on: January 19, 2016, 01:15:02 PM »
Any chance an option could be added for a system sub menu? This would allow you to choose a system/emulator first then I could setup multiple displays in one system. I know filters allow some of this but with a limited amount of buttons on some setups it would be easier for a sub-menu???? Pretty Please? ;D

General / HELP! *Makaron Emulator
« on: January 15, 2016, 12:25:59 PM »
OK so using this emulator for Naomi called Makaron. I know there are other emulators for Naomi but this one works best for my setup. There are 2 types of Rom files/extensions that this emulator uses .DAT and .ZIP files. Everything is working in my emulator the problem is in AM. both file types are set in the emulator config. the exe for the emulator is called naomi.exe. the issue is I can launch any of the .DAT roms fine from AM but the .ZIP roms give error. I think the issue is that when you open the exe outside of AM there is a drop down for rom types either .DAT or .ZIP and the .ZIP ones are the ones that don't play in AM but fine when choosing them in the emulator, maybe there is an "arg" i need to add?...Please HELP it's driving me crazy

Pasted config file:

executable           C:\ARCADE\NAOMI\Makaron T12-5\NAOMI.exe
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\ARCADE\NAOMI
romext               .zip;.dat
system               naomi
exit_hotkey          Num3
artwork    flyer           
artwork    marquee         C:\ARCADE\MARQUEES
artwork    snap            C:\ARCADE\snaps
artwork    wheel           

General / Launch Chrome Browser or any EXE

Any way to launch Chrome Browser (or any browser or EXE for that matter) and still take advantage of hot key closure? That way would not have to exit AM.

General / 1920x1080 Basic Layout help
« on: April 17, 2015, 10:03:50 PM »
Is there anyone that can help me with a tweaked Basic nut file? I want to take the Basic theme and just up it from 640x480 to 1920x1080. I can change the resolution in the file but then of course all of the other alignments are off and I just don't know how to do the math to "up" the numbers? Please help?


local t = fe.add_artwork( "snap", 348, 152, 262, 262 );
t.trigger = Transition.EndNavigation;

t = fe.add_artwork( "marquee", 348, 64, 262, 72 );
t.trigger = Transition.EndNavigation;

local l = fe.add_listbox( 32, 64, 262, 352 );
l.charsize = 16;
l.set_selbg_rgb( 255, 0, 0 );
l.set_sel_rgb( 0, 0, 0 );
l.sel_style = Style.Bold;

fe.add_image( "bg.png", 0, 0 );

l = fe.add_text( "[DisplayName]", 0, 15, 640, 30 );
l.set_rgb( 255, 255, 255 ); = Style.Bold;

// Left side:

l = fe.add_text( "[Title]", 30, 424, 320, 16 );
l.set_rgb( 255, 0, 0 );
l.align = Align.Left;

l = fe.add_text( "[Year] [Manufacturer]", 30, 441, 320, 16 );
l.set_rgb( 255, 0, 0 );
l.align = Align.Left;

l = fe.add_text( "[Category]", 30, 458, 320, 16 );
l.set_rgb( 255, 0, 0 );
l.align = Align.Left;

// Right side:

l = fe.add_text( "[ListEntry]/[ListSize]", 320, 424, 290, 16 );
l.set_rgb( 255, 0, 0 );
l.align = Align.Right;

l = fe.add_text( "[FilterName]", 320, 441, 290, 16 );
l.set_rgb( 255, 0, 0 );
l.align = Align.Right;
