Themes / Gun Game Theme Discussion
« on: June 16, 2017, 07:03:07 AM »
Hey guys,
I have been running AM with groovymame on one of my cabs for a while now. I figured AM is a good option for this next project I will be working on. I am running  through ideas on a theme that would fit a gun game cabinet. I have a Target Terror Gold cab with a trisync CRT. It currently runs the game dedicated now. I am planning to also set this cab up with a PC running arcade shooters in it as well.

For theme I was originally thinking something like a 3x3 tile type arrangement showing the marquees or video snaps and then have a next/previous page button too. The game list won't be huge as there aren't nearly the amount of gun games as other games out there.  The thought was shoot the game you wanted to play and launch it. This is assuming the guns act like a mouse in windows, which I believe they should based on my research.

That's my rough draft idea. Would like to get feedback from other on how to make this work well.


General / Problem exiting one game
« on: August 15, 2015, 04:18:28 PM »
I am running AM on my cabinet (CRT, Groovymame, Win 7, etc) and have had a great time so far. I decided to put Fix it Felix Jr on using The wrapper Howard_Castro put together:,135805
I am setup using the windows_games emulator as suggested on the boards here. My "rom" is just the shortcut (.lnk) file.

The game runs fine. My problem is only when it exits. I get stuck with the taskbar visible over the top of AttractMode (running the fill screen option as suggested) and the focus being stuck on the taskbar. This is the only game I seem to be having an issue with. I have replicated this problem with both versions 1.5.3 and 1.4.

The weird thing is I have no issues with this on my desktop. I built the config on the desktop then copied all the pertinent files over to the cabinet and then the issue popped up. The cabinet is really just a plain win 7 load  with AM, groovymame and drivers. I have also tried setting win 7 to basic vs aero, auto hide the taskbar, ensure no other programs are running (just AM and the accompanying cmd window).

Really appreciate any help. Hopefully this is something simple. Thanks
