    Games and other nerdy stuff like that.

My Connections

  1. I have some little, wrap up, sort of questions. Upon buying the full access, will all of my emulators rotate 90 degrees or just GameEx? Also, I noticed that some of the verticle games have bezzles that have been preloaded. Is there a way to make bezzles, or get ones that match the other games that may not have them? Thanks again. Talk to you all soon.
  2. Sucesssss!!!!! Thanks so very much guys. I plan to purchase the full version of GameEx tomorrow, actually. I really just wanted to see if it would do what I needed it to before I spent any money on it. It's a very nice program, and well put together. Now all I have to do is find some Parents for my MAME and I think that should do it. So, thanks again to all of you. nullPointer you're witt was very much appreciated and your willingness to help out a complete stranger in a light and friendly way, thanks to Frequency and Tempest for their help as well. It was very direct and to the point. If anyone asks I will certainly refer them here. Have a great day.
  3. New problem: Nestopia was opening yesterday, and now opens to a black screen and stays there. Any thoughts? I will check the GameEx .ini file again as well. Thanks for the help as always.
  4. Thanks again to all of you. I will try those out. Out of curiosity, what is it that you would look for in the .ini files or the last game log?
  5. All done. I can get them to work in both EMs. However, I have found that Nestopia doesn't like to open up to full screen and that MAME, when I updated the games, gave me a ton of crap that I didn't put in there. I had only added like 5 ROMS and I now have over 3500 or something like that. I even have the Indi developer games option turned off so I should, in theory, have been able to see what I have added, right? I looked for a way to have Nestopia open up to full screen and it doesn't seem like there is an option. Is there an option in the emulator itself that I can tweek to make that happen. Thanks again. You have all be very helpful.
  6. Ok. I am going to do that right now.
  7. Frequency. What should I do after I get the updated DirectX? Do I update GameEx? Thanks.
  8. Thanks a whole lot for the info fellas. I updated some of that already, but when I put my ROMS into the correct file path they still don't show up in the dedicated MAME section. I will try removing MAME from the "emulators" list. Maybe that will help with the confusion. Thanks again. I will let you all know for sure.
  9. This is the runitgame.bat info. Nestopia runitgame.bat Nestopia.exe - System Error The program can't start because d3dx9_43.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. (this error has only been seen when games are being run through Nestopia in GameEx.)

  13. Hello, everyone. I have recently started creating my machine, and I need some help. The other day I had moved a bunch of MAME ROMS to the proper directory through the set up wizard, and made sure that they all worked . Then, something happened. All but two of the 22 games that I have are now loading black screens, and then after about 5 seconds they load out to the main menu. Does anyone know what may have caused this? I would also like to know if MAME ROMS are known for not working a lot of the time. I have well over 100 and only a handful of them work. Separately, I am also having problems with the nestopia emulator recognizing my NES ROMS while in GameEx. The error message says something about file extension .dll not being found. I do know that they work as I have run them with the same emulator outside of GameEx. I really like this frontend, so far. I am just a little frustrated about the situation. On even more of a side note, I would like to know what I can do about getting the pre-loaded ROMS, Dk, Smash Tv, Tempest, etc. to boot up and become playable, as they are currently not working either. Again, I am really excited to use this FE. Thank you for reading this, and I look forward to your much needed help. Doug
