    Draco1962 you are the MAN! Renamed it to match and it works. So odd that I have never had to do this before. Thanks for everyone's help and the updates. Now onto PinballX! Hope that goes a little smoother LOL

    [RESOLVED] GameEx Arcade setup

    Hi there Draco1962. Yes I have an Xarcade.cfg in my MAME directory. I tested and ran MAME before I added GameEx Arcade. I simply select XArcade from the controller option. As far as CORE INPUT OPTIONS I don't know what that is. X-Arcade has always worked on every version of GameEx Arcade I have tried. It also works with MAME once I select it. The X-Arcade works in GameEX Arcade with the "-ctrlr X-Arcade" added to MAME settings. The sticks and buttons all work correctly, EXCEPT somehow it is preventing a launch of a ROM. The controller is correctly mapped as even after the failed ROM launch I can back into the menu screen using the escape button sequence and the controller continues to work as normal.

    Hi RedDog. Removed the space and there is some minor change. Now when launching it shows brief moments such as Initializing, Loading etc... like normal when a ROM is loading but then the simple black blank screen as before. This time it doesn't return to the Play Game Now screen. Right flipper two player buttons will get me out. Okay on exit I get this message "Fatal error. Could not load controller file X-Arcade.cfg" Interesting as I have always used this controller through various versions of GameEx arcade. Never had any issues. As of right now it controls the front end menus just fine. Even allows me to back out of the crash. It also works just fine with my MAME install outside of GameEx. I set it up and tested MAME before adding GameEx. Removed the "-ctrlr X-Arcade" and the ROMs load.

    Okay I'm back running. I have DL'ed and installed 15.5. GameEx Arcade now runs which is a good step. But of course with me everything can't go that smooth LOL. Issue is when I select a game to play it will not launch. Simply goes to a blank screen for 10 seconds then a return to the Play This Game screen. As always any help is appreciated.

    Nice to meet you tthurman. Very old Radeon 4830, so no special shit. Basic driver as that is all offered. Thanks for the advice. I will see what I can do with it. Lots of good points to follow. All my drives are corrupt and I'm working on it. I hit a total low and am rebuilding. Nice of you to reach out.

    My apologies. A little bit of frustration creeping in after having every drive corrupt.

    Any form of copy protection that may relate to my circumstances? This is all quite bizarre, including the complete lack of dialog from what I consider basic questions.

    Good, yet bizarre news, I seemed to have had a failing SSD (failed?) I have not done much investigation yet other then a fresh install on Win7 and GameEx Arcade. But it launches so it is a win. Quite the oddest thing I have ever seen in a while. No error messages etc... Only on this last build did I ever have a difference in complications from others. Anyways up-wards and on-wards! I haven't tested anything yet, but I thought it important to update the community as to my status. GameEx Arcade launching.

    I have done multiple times Tom. There is nothing obvious in the Task Manager of anything GameEx related. It has been two(?) versions in a row I have had this issue of non launching GameEx. Nothing happens not even a flicker. GameEx_Background.exe used to work on the last build but now it will launch GameEx but no ROMs. That is why I do full uninstall, re-install. But I feel there might be issues remaining even after a full uninstall. This is why previously I had asked about .reg entries that I could delete to insure clean installs. I might just reinstall Win7 tonight. It is a dedicated cab so it shouldn't need to be, but you never know. It sounds like I am the only one having this issue so I might as well do so. Then I can make sure, or not, if it is a problem on my end.

    Hi Draco1962. I did fresh installs because of the continuing problems I am having, as to isolate each build. Yes loosing my configuration setting each time sucks! I am quite familiar with how to launch GameEx. Are you providing some insight to the situation that I'm not understanding? Any help is welcome. I currently have a non functioning GameEx Arcade. GameEx_Background.exe will launch into GameEx front-end but fails to launch ROMs. As stated previously, GameEx.exe will not launch at all. I have done multiple re-installs. Thanks for reminding me about adding log/config files. It was fast and furious for a bit and that got missed. If I could request some old versions to try. I have never had this issue in the past. My near two year old cabinet worked flawlessly with GameEx demo. Now that I have upgraded, not so much. GameEx.ini log.txt

    I should note that I always FULLY uninstall old versions before installing the latest build. I am always concerned that there might be some errors from not doing so. Clean installs every time.

    Turning off run in background had no effect. GameEx.exe will not launch. GameEx_Background.exe continues to launch without issue. I'll have to ask this again, what is the difference between the two and any negatives to me running GameEx_Background.exe?

    GameEx.exe 15.40 will not launch. GameEx_Background.exe will. I don't know what the difference is. As far as the Attract mode goes, it appears to be fixed and working. It does jump to the desktop between games but I think there is a setting for that.

    The new GameEx arcade will not launch. Uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled twice. Same result. Edit. I have reverted back to the last GameEx Arcade and now it will not launch either. This is a dedicated GameEx Arcade build. Could the GameEx reg key have an install limit or something?
