    [Resolved] Screen saver will not run

    Tom, just sent you a PM. I've purchased the registered version twice since 2011. My last purchase was in 2016. Unless i purchase again i'm stuck with the older version... Guess i'll be making another putchase... given the amount of time and money i've put into this project it's a drop in the bucket. Please review my PM and let me know. Thank you.

    [Resolved] Screen saver will not run

    just installed the latest download 15.32 on my second pc mentioned earlier... ran an update and saw the number of available games drop by about 1000.... and more importantly the screen saver now works. Is this most likely a case that my mame version 192 doesn't work with an older version of GX in this case 14.82?

    The "verify ROMS" option is already set to Yes. Really confused.... i've got close to 200 mame games as favorites and they all work just fine. I've just recently done a fresh install of GX on another PC with minimal changes to the config other than the mame settings and screen saver setting... doesn't work on it either. I didn't register that install, don't know if that matters. Curious, when on a multi monitor system... what should happen? Do the other screens go blank? Probably just fishing as i just tried to disable my second monitor but result was same. other things may be worth mentioning... although i have don't show adult games set to not show i still see some in the full mame list..... also, frequently have to delete the gamelist.txt file and then update list or info at the bottom of page which pops up is incorrectly pointing to another game.

    found this and didn't realize there was a seperate program, always assumed gameex just handled it.. anyway see this guys problem never got resolved... did try to install the program and got same behavior this person had... still can't get screen saver to work for the life of me.

    i disabled the touch screen days ago trying to debug another issue. Nice quote btw... i particularly liked your own recently.... "loads an xml file.. but is searchable! Hold my beer.." funny stuff.... :-)

    i tried to reply to this but the forum went down apparently right before i could get it out yesterday. i do have an ipac and an ultimate board however i don't see any keys being hit when off the computer and besides if i was able to run the screen saver with videos wouldn't that negate this possibility?

    i tried using the play videos too option and just play videos pointed at my video snap folder... this worked. every fav game launches however is a mute point says i've already attempted setting the favs only option to false as indicated earlier. tried disabling the only 2 plugins i had been using, ledblinky and marquee masher.... didn't help either.

    tried changing attractonlyfavs=false but doesn't change things.
  10. For whatever reason now i cannot get the screen saver to run. Will attach my config file. Whether i wait for the amount of time set or try to kick it off manually doesn't work. If i try manually the screen goes blank for a second then comes right back to the menu. Log and ini files attached. Thought it was fairly simple and not sure what other information i can provide here but please let me know otherwise. Thanks. GameEx.ini log.txt
  11. I've had my custom menu setup and working great for many years. Now i'm wanting to add a quick way to access a custom list... can this be done and if so how? Would be similar to how you can add a link to favorites in the menu structure. i've got custom lists path set and my one custom list in that folder.

    well have got it working now.... using fe active animation in combination with launching my first animation batch file on exit of gameex works.... the ledblinky fe quit animation doesn't run forever but no big deal, using the gameex config option takes care of it. Thank you for looking into this.

    rather than throwing everything out there i was trying to keep it simple, one thing at a time. So you're saying when gameex launches by default (regardless of settings in either program) it will stop ledblinky animation? i tried to set things up such that when gameex would launch it will stop this animation and start a second animation but could never get it to work. Tried using the GX startup option as well as the FE startup option in LedBlinky. The later option appeared to work however appeared to me you had to specifiy a time limit and not run indefinitely.

    I did exit gameex but after i waited for like 20 seconds or so, it was up and running at the time i exited.... it didn't "appear" to exit without me actually doing it.
