    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?

    Log file. I will install update as soon as possible. Thanx log.txt

    I've gone to downloads and installed latest version each time I was informed it was updated. Might have been a slip up do to no revision numbers in the file name. I could have accidentally re-installed the Aug 20th version as that is showing as the date last downloaded. Placing version #'s on the file name would be a kind request. Just downloaded latest version of GameEx Arcade. Setup consisted of only directing it to MAME and ROMS. Attract mode still flips the screen. No change. GameEx.ini

    As a note I had just configure the MAME from the Wizard - Emulator Selection. Then set directories in Emulator Setup. It made no difference in the Attract Mode/Screen Saver issue. GameEx.ini log.txt

    I am using the MAME included with the MAME GameEX system pack. It is unmodified except for adding X-Arcade and choosing default directories. I have not modified it in any way. The video flipping in Attract/Screensaver(whatever you want to call it) is annoying as it never happened before. It is a fault of GameEx or the included MAME GameEx system pack installer. I assumed it would be an easy fix. It is beyond my simple abilities and attempts at this time. Should I ditch the included MAME build?

    Maybe my wording is wrong. When it switches after a period of time to show demo's of the games with an auto switch at user set intervals. You hit a key and it goes back to user interface. I thought this was arcade attract mode.
