    attract mode isn't working with non mame emulators

    I attached the ini to my previous post. I did upgrade to windows 10 but I can't remember if this problem only stated after I did the windows update or just a Game Ex update.

    [PLUGIN] Marquee Masher

    Hi, would it be possible to use 2 screens for the marquee and have the images span across both of them? Would that be more of a Windows thing by extending the desktop or is that Marquee Masher could do?

    No Emulators in Attract mode

    Ok well hopefully its a known issue and not something i need to spend more time on. It always worked before but my system has been off for a few months and then I updates to the newest version so I don’t know where it broke. I’ve attached my log and config just in case something stands out. Thanks Nelson GameEx.ini log.txt

    No Emulators in Attract mode

    Hi I just noticed that during my screen saver/Attract mode, Game Ex is only loading videos and Mame games even though I have it set to load other emulators for the screen saver. I have triple checked the Setup Wized as well as the actual Gameex.ini and everything is correct. I just rebooted it so the log file doesn't have any info but I can attach it later if need be. Any other ideas? Thanks Nelson
  8. Hi Tom, Would it be possible to have the Screen Saver/Attract mode scan subfolders for videos to show? I'm sure many of us use EMUMOVIES and there are cool Advert videos that could be shown but they are all in seperate System Type folders with in the Advert folder. ie: E:\GameArt\Video_Adrvert\Atari, Nintendo, etc... Thanks for everything you do Nelson

    Screensaver Attract Mode Video Subfolders

    Ok thanks for doing that. I guess I’ll have to think of something else
  11. Hey Guys, I'm refreshing my system (Again) and got some new Commercials or Advert videos I'd like to use in my Attract Mode Screensaver. The problem is that I've got a bit of Data OCD and like to keep things organized in folders but the GameEX screensaver doesn't seem to like that. Not a huge deal that needs any reprogramming by Tom, but is this really the case? Does the GameEX screensaver not scan subfolders or am I just doing something wrong. Thanks for any info. Nelson

    Custom Databases

    Ok I have it sorta working. I did so many things that I'm trying to figure out what did it. Can I rename the Database Fields. Instead of DEVELOPER it would be ARTIST. Ive tried renaming the column headers in Access but it doesn't do anything in GameEx. or could I add new columns and get rid of the ones I don't need. (Tried hiding and deleting them but again it just broke it) can an someone explain how the Database works? What does it look for and then what does it do? does it look for the file name with extension in a certain column and then match and change the name to the name in a different column? Again I'm just not sure how to format the list before importing it into the mdb. Also should I really be working with the DB3? Is that easier? Ive attached my - MDB file screen cap (too big) - CSV file I use to import into the MDB - my map file - GameEx config - screen cap of GameEx showing game info imported "properly" GameEx.ini 5) Database.csv 4) Karafun.map

    Custom Databases

    I'm using a separate program, Karafun. So I copied a MDB and saved it as Karafun and put in the entries. I'm confused where to use the file name and how/if I use the MAP file name.

    Custom Databases

    Hi, I'm trying to reorganize my Cab, and im at my Karaoke section right now. I use a MAP file to show a clean list in GameEx but I would really love to use a Database file so people could sort by Song Title or by Artist my files are named like this; [email protected]^Category.zip I use the @ and the ^ symbols so I can keep a clean list in an EXCEL file, that can do things like make my MAP file. My Map File looks like this; [email protected]^Category.zip|SongTitle by Artist I've tried many times to make a Database File (mdb) but I can't seem to make it work. i put the FILENAME in the NAME column and in the GOODNAME column, the ARTIST in DEVELOPERS COLUMN and the CATEGORY in CATEGORY column, but in GameEX I still get the name in the MAP file. I see the options for DELVELOPER, CATEGORY, YEAR etc but when I select any, the list is empty. Im using Microsoft Access and have tried MDBPLUS, but if there is a better solution, please point me in the right direction. Thanks for any help
