    MAME Bezel assist

    Cool! Thanks for the advice Draco!
  2. I am currently using the bezel artwork for each specific game in MAME and not the GameEx bezel. Many of the games I play have a large bezel that takes away from the actual game. Many of them are fine, but my girls like puzzle bobble for instance. The bezel is a majority of the screen. Is there a way to choose a different bezel if there are multiples or can you change the sizing in some way?
  3. Thanks! It was a great day. Spent it with the better half and kids. Good food, laughs and cake. Hope you all are doing well!
  4. You can get media from emumovies.com too. If the system pack doesn't work. I'm not sure if the wheel style video themes are in the system pack or not.
  5. I've downloaded it twice without issue. It took awhile and I had to make sure my computer didn't go to sleep. It's worked both times. I accidentally deleted after the first time, which resulted in the second DL
  6. You could rename the snap folder or move it temporarily. Then download the MAME System Pack that Tom put on the FTP. It has media in it and it's been working excellent for me. Then put the new system pack snap folder where the old one was. Might be worth a shot. Is he running MAME through the main MAME GameEx piece or as an emulator?
  7. @Dansmell @Evilforces I just came across this in another thread and thought I'd post it here. It may or may not be of assistance. I hope you guys get it figured out. The setting below will default to no, but you may want to give it a look. I figured it'd be worth posting at least. Good luck.
  8. I just got a new SSD hard drive. I did not do a mirror, because I wanted to start fresh. I finally got everything done and I was running GameEx Arcade Edition. It was working great, but then ended up freezing and closing on me during videos a few times. I quickly realized I had not installed Codecs. I then installed Codecs and it worked great. Have you tried installing the Codecs from the MAME system pack? I am not sure where that version of Codecs is on the internet. I just know that the one in the MAME system pack install worked fantastic for me. The MAME system pack is available on the FTP I know you had said earlier that you installed Codecs I believe. Not sure if there are different versions out there or not.
  9. It depends on leaving everything where it is in the system pack. I at first moved files around from the pack to places where I already had media on my main Drive. I then received the same error. I then decided to just leave everything where it was in the MAME system pack folder and placed that on my main C:/ and that worked after I put my GameEx path and ran it. I really like my media files for MAME to be right in my MAME dir file, so I ended up just taking the media files and placing them in the MAME folder. I then used the setup wizard to direct everything to the right paths. Basically, I used the system pack download for the media and MAME emulator. I then placed everything into one MAME folder and set the paths up through the GameEx setup wizard.
  10. Emumovies has a FTP too. I snagged video themes over there. The key for me with the MAME system pack was to start it and not have my computer go to sleep. I had a few issues at first, but I realized my computer was going to sleep and stopping the connection.
  11. Will Rocketlauncer use different bezel than what MAME does on its own through the zipped artwork files? I've always just used the bezel zipped artwork files from emumovies and placed them in the artwork file with the scan lines stuff. It seems to work great with MAME if you just make sure to map the artwork file correctly in MAME.ini. It defaults to artwork in the MAME directory file. I also like that I can turn off the keep aspect ratio piece and it fills my entire LCD TV in my arcade with the game play screen and bezel. I just wish I would've known it did that prior to my cabinet build. I would've gone with a bigger tv and just used the bezels for each game.... that was a bummer.
  12. Sounds like a return and purchase of a Nvidia GEForce to me....
  13. @Dansmell sorry to hear you are still having issues. @DazzleHP is accurate on the fact that it takes a good PC to run the videos. It looks like you have a 3.99 ghz 8 core AMD, so that should be fine. Are you running a stock video card off the motherboard? If so, you may want to invest in a Nvidia GeForce or the like. That may assist in this. The videos working outside of GameEx is a good thing. However, the issue may be your transitioning from video to video and that speed. Last ditch effort. Maybe try downloading the Microsoft Visual Studio 2015. That will most likely download a bunch of .NET framework and C++ items that may need to be on your device. This was a recommendation to download from @SIMPLY_AUSTIN for Hyperspin on his YouTube.com tutorial for that product. I would mention that I believe Hyperspin is even MORE dependent on video transitions and things like that. The wheel feature is very intense on video with the video themes.
  14. I am not completely sure. I will take a look at my log when I get home. Maybe check your windows update and make sure you have the most up to date direct x versions, etc.
