  1. Nintendo 64 Games wont load - Project 64

    @dschulpius Now that you have corrected your command line to Project64.exe "[ROMPATH]\[ROMFILE]", could you run another N64 game through GameEx and then post the resulting log.txt and runitgame.bat file. runitgame.bat can be found in the GameEx\DATA directory. Also, I notice your roms are zipped. I am not sure if it will matter, but if you open the zip file for the game you ran, does it contain one rom or multiple roms?
  2. [RESOLVED] BSNES Fullscreen and Send Keys Problem

    I don't use BSNES, but I did some searching and it appears that this is a problem with this emulator with other front ends as well. Apparently, the programmer has not included a full screen option on launch yet (which is odd). The way you are setting it up looks correct. I suggest that you increase the wait time to something large like 10000 (10 sec) to see if it triggers. Then, dial it back by a few thousand and test again. Keep adjusting the wait time until you get one that the emulator consistently picks up on. Of course, the other option is to try other emulators.

  4. [RESOLVED] NeoGeo Game Names Not Displaying

    Excellent. Well done.
  5. [RESOLVED] NeoGeo Game Names Not Displaying

    Hey Shumaker, The mapfile will help you display the game names properly (which is what your original post asked about), but only that. It won't help you with any of that other stuff. Since the WinKawaks database has not been developed, GameEx cannot use it to automatically populate data or download assets. You will probably want to go in a different direction for that solution and it may require some manual work as well. There are a few ways you can go about it though. Please do us a favor and post your GameEx.ini file from your CONFIG folder so we can see what your current setup looks like.

  7. [NEWS] Big seasonal updates

    Always glad for the updates. I did not have time to test the beta, so I am looking forward to playing with this. As for having a standalone HTPC app, I don't see a reason to go there unless you intend to remove the functionality from GameEx. What makes you consider a doing a standalone and having to maintain the feature in two applications? I have had an HTPC for about 10 years now and have tried many of the more popular front ends. I currently use WMC7 as a PVR and Emby as a Video/Movie front end. I find both to work well with only a few gripes. The most important feature I look for though is whether I think the wifey will be able to use it...critical in fact. Seams to be a common need.
  8. Multiple instances of Gamex running in Task Manager

    Besides GameEx.exe, there is a GameEx_background.exe that runs. I never thought to ask what the background was before, but I had generally thought that it performed various online and cleanup tasks. Regardless, it is normal for both of those programs to run.
  9. Additional Emulators...not List Bios ROMS

    There is no parameter to exclude files from the rom list, but you should be able to manage it with the ROM FILTER under the EMULATOR SETUP though.
  10. I chose the hybrid as well thinking that the data drive would get a bit of a boost over the standard drive. Bummer if that isn't the case. Ah well. For a $50.00 case, it's not bad. It's not as rugged as more expensive cases I have worked with, but I like it well enough. The last time I did any building, the whole 'hide the cables in the back' idea didn't exist, so I love how clean and tidy the main space can look now.
  11. I meant to post the final pics and specs a bit ago, but got all busy and stuff. So, here it is: I initially meant to go Micro-ATX, but decided the difference between the Micro and standard ATX size was not that much. I also realized that for a few bucks I could do a little themeing...so I mostly went black and white (except for the Noctua cooler which only comes in blah-tan; good cooler though). The case and mobo came with some relatively subdued leds, so I left them active. Here it is: Intel - Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor MSI - Z270 TOMAHAWK ARCTIC ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Asus - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6GB Dual Video Card Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory Samsung - 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Seagate - FireCuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive Noctua - NH-U9S 46.4 CFM CPU Cooler EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply Fractal Design - Focus G ATX Mid Tower Case (white) Microsoft - Windows 10 Home 64-bit Thanks again to everyone who gave me advice. It really helped.
  12. None of the games load for me

    What's shakin' Bacon, You posted in the GameEx Evolution forum, which is the next version of GameEx that currently in development and was only available as a sneak peak for a very short time about a year ago. Are you actually using GameEx Evolution or are you using GameEx or GameEx Arcade?
  13. I hear ya on the SSD. The older laptop I am currently using has two drive bays. I was floored when I switched from a single 7200 to a SSD/7200 setup. It was like a new machine. I know I got at least 2 more years out of it before I felt the new PC itch. I was also trying to save money at the time, so it was a nice solution. Parts have already started filtering in, but not enough to start building. I should be able to start next week. Crossing my fingers that I won't hit any snags.
  14. [HELP] GE and Arcade, mame won't run

    It's up to you on whether you want to explore the sitatuation with the command line, but if the configuration you ended up with works for you and you are happy with it, thats good. I personally don't get too crazy with all of the switches that are avaialble for Mame. The basics have always worked fine for me. Then again, my setups are pretty basic since I do not have a dedicated cab with fancy bells and whistles.
  15. MAME System Pack Invalid ROM path

    Do you have a full rom set? The installer assumes this is the case. There was a similar posting by another user a short time ago here. Make sure 005.zip exists in your set. If not, either remedy that or add a dummy copy and try again.
