  1. I have been using GameEx AE with all of my arcade builds and all of the sudden when I buy 5 AMD Processor PCs it doesn't work. Am I missing something? How can GameEx not work just with a difference in processor. Please Help!! I have many orders I need to fill building these PCs for my friends. Thanks! Here is the last part of the log. 11:25:14.89 12/30/2017: MAME list update took 2 minutes, 20 seconds. 11:25:14.90 12/30/2017: Attract Mode Re-Enabled 11:25:15.35 12/30/2017: 21 Consecutive Exceptions Occured 11:25:15.37 12/30/2017: Object reference not set to an instance of an object. 11:25:15.43 12/30/2017: at Direct2D.Direct2d.Device.TestCooperativeLevel() 11:25:15.44 12/30/2017: at GameEx.GameEx.MainForm.de() 11:25:15.45 12/30/2017: Trying reinitialising the display after sleeping for 4 seconds 11:25:15.46 12/30/2017: Exception count will be dropped to 15
  2. gameex jukobox start button

    Hi, everybody I am using gameex vor several years now and really like it. I have been able solve practically all my issues so far. That said, there’s one remaining: For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to start the jukebox with a button on my control panel. All other jukebox controls are fine once I started the jukebox in the menu (including play/stop). Also, if I configure gameex to start playing music after startup it does so as expected. I just don’t want it to pay music every time it starts. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance
  3. I'm sure there's a simple reason I'm getting this error, here's my steps. 1. Brand new install of Windows 10 64, updated. (i5, 16G ram, basic nvidia card) 2. download GameEx Arcade edition, install. 3. receive a message that windows wants to install .Net 3.5 (includes 2) 4 after .net install completes I re attempt GameEx arcade. 5 install runs without error I start GameEx. 6 I see the wizard. when I advance to the "input settings" section I receive an Unhandled Exception. I have tried regular edition, uninstalling and reinstalling .net and gameex. again I'm sure theres something basic I am overlooking. Here's the content of the exception: See the end of this message for details on invoking just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box. ************** Exception Text ************** System.IO.FileNotFoundException: The specified module could not be found.

  4. Gameex Bug

    I wanted to report a Bug that I found on Gameex. I made a video to show the problem. Gameex is started normally. I enter the emulator folder and choose any of the systems. In the video I made, I chose the "MEGA DRIVE" system. Once inside the chosen system area, if I want to maximize the screen by pressing "ALT + ENTER" the screen is maximized, but two errors appear. The first is that the background screen disappears giving way to it an image belongs to the file "emubak.png". The second error is that the navigation keys that go down and up in the game list are moved from place to place (first it was on the left / bottom part of the screen and after the error happens these keys invade the part where the list of games is, as can be seen in the video). The gameex is configured to maintain the current computer resolution. My computer is at 1920x1080 resolution. My monitor has the same resolution capacity. And I currently use a theme that also has 1920x1080 resolution. I had reported this problem a long time ago. I thought that future updates would fix them, but that has not happened to this day. I would really like the developers to take a look at this issue. It is not something that brings problems to the functionality that the gameex is intended for but really irritates me. log.txt GameEx.ini
  5. Hi Guys, i would be interested in becoming a lifetime subscriber to GameEx so I can have access to the FTP. But I am a little bit worried if it provides a better user experience than using a google picture search. So I hope some of you subscribers can enligthen me. For example in the PinballX Game List Manager, if i press the search Button as a non-subscriber I will find artwork for most classic VP tables. However there is nothing for PinballFX 2 (3) or Pinball Arcade. So how is the experience if I subscribe? I know there are artworks available for these tables but would they show up in the search of the interface for me to select directly? Or do I need to manually connect to the FTP download everything and then locate the stuff from my Harddrive? (That would be like the google experience) Thank you for your insights!
  6. I have everything else configured and working, but for some reason I have never gotten this to work. Also if it matters, its on a USB drive. I had the roms on 2 different drives before and moved them to a single drive. It didn't work before either. GameEx also lists the drive letter before the rom name as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. log.txt GameEx.ini
  7. [RESOLVED] Mame.xml

    Hi All, I've been using GameEx for some time on my upright and now I have a bit of time I would like to transfer the upright roms to my PinballX set up. I can easily sort the vertical games out but to save a lot of time fiddling is there an easy way to get GameEx to export a mame.xml file for PinballX I have Googled to no avail...
  8. GameEx x Sufami Turbo x Command Line

    Hello guys. I discovered this system called "SUFAMI TURBO" recently and wanted to set it up on GameEx. I have researched and seen that the emulators that play games of this system is the "Snes9x" and also the "Bsnes Plus" I currently use the latest versions of each of these emulators. Could someone tell me what command line to use? It can be for any of these emulators. Both are very good !!
  9. GameEx X Yabause X Stretched image

    I am currently using the Yabause emulator to play the Saturn games. The emulator works perfectly inside the gameex, but I can not find the command line to cause the emulator not to stretch the image when it enters full screen mode. I searched for yabause command lines on the internet but could not find the one that solved my problem. Could someone tell me what the command line is to prevent the emulator from stretching the image? Currently my command line is this: Yabause.exe -f -i "[ROMPATH] \ [ROMFILE]" -f: Causes the emulator to go to full screen mode. -i: responsible for recognizing the game iso.
  10. Running gameex with antimicro

    Good people ....... I decided to use the mapping of keyboard and mouse buttons, the so-called "antimicro". I have already done the mapping and the files with the controls settings are ready. But I have no idea what command line to use to get the antimicro program started with the proper configuration for the video game I chose to play. Could you tell me how to do this? Ps. I've tried XPADDER but it just does not work on my computer. I already had what I could, even trigger the developer of the program. My current choice is for "antimicro".
  11. I've been using GameEx for some time now and have 23 emulators set up in the GameEx setup wizard. Everything was fine and working. I went to set up a 24th emulator in the setup wizard, it wasn't working as I liked so I tried to replace it with another (which ive done successfully in the past) and now all by emulators have the correct name in the first line, but everything else after that is referring to Visual Pinball including paths for each of my emulators assets and roms. Visual Pinball is the first emulator listed as number 1. When I go to GameEx the emulators work fine and I am able to load the games at this point. I am working on GameEx trying to get all the emulators that I would like working, but now I am afraid to do anything until this problem is resolved. Does anyone have any ideas. Is there a file that may have become corrupt, that should be deleted or replaced? There was an update to GameEx earlier today, could the update be buggy? Please help. Thanks.
  12. Hi all, Been searching around the forum but can't find an issue that is similar enough to ours; When loading into the Gameex system and viewing "all games" not all of the ROMs that are shown as available in MAME can be viewed or played. We've been looking into this issue for the best part of the day, we also tried changing the ROM path but the same 160 games (which stop after A in the directory) showed. I've attached the gameex.ini and log.txt from our machine, any help would be greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Michael at 3GiTech GameEx.ini log.txt
  13. Lifetime Sub

    I just got a Lifetime Sub after using GameEx since early 2000's. Sounds dumb, but I can't even sit down I'm so excited !!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to Tom for years and years and years of supporting and updating this!
  14. Hi there! I'm trying to load basic gameex from a backup small hard drive I had, so I just installed it fresh, no older settings, nothing at all. When I try to launch it, it crashes with an error of non valid characters. My log in spanish... the only spanish text is the 4th line, "Error: non valid characters on access path" verified the setup with the setup wizard, and the only invalid paths reported are from default setups that I don't use (videos, jukebox, daphne...) all of them disabled. what can it be?
  15. GameEx/Mame

    Hi everyone, I am new to GameEx (used to use Mala 174). I am using the setup wizard, but I can't seem to get just the Mame roms that I have to display. GameEx is continuously pulling a gigantic list. How can I get just the roms that I have on my drive to show, and not what is available online? Thanks!
  16. Download old .mdb databases

    Any chance to get the old .mdb databases ? I've just found that many of the new .db3 databases are not full ( for example Master System has only 15 entries ) If i remember well the .mdb was full As .mdbs are still allowed in Gammex, can we download them somewhere or someone using an old version have them ? Thanks
  17. Hello, I have several computers with GameEx on it. One of these old computers goes into a black screen when I try to run GameEx on it. The mouse dissapears for a few seconds while it's black and then pops into view. I can't get out of the black screen until the mouse shows up, then I just press the ESC key and I return to the desktop. I just installed GameEx on it. The Operating System is Windows XP. The computer is old, but still works. What could be the problem?
  18. Hello, I am using an old PC that has Windows XP on it. I installed GameEx but it starts up with an error when I try to run it. It tells me that I should try turning off my advanced graphics and try using 16 bit color mode. I tried googling this and didn't find anything. I also looked in the setup wizard under display options but didn't find anything either. How do I accomplish this?
  19. Could anyone tell me the command line to the CEMU emulator running through GameEx?
  20. [REQUEST] Your Builds!

    Good day guuys! Pleasure to see you all again. I hope some of you guys liked or in some cases mind me making a video helping new people joining the fold around here. Many un-answered questions from users who was interested but daunted on how to get themselves setup with a bit of GameEx goodness. I hope this video helped out those put of by switching or starting a front end Now I know this was basic, maybe not as fluent in the actual setup as some of you pros, but I hope it got many new users on board to join this great Front End. So thank you guys for making this place just as good as the FE it supports! Well now we need to take it to the next stage. I have shown people how to get it setup and get them on the merry road. But now what I need to do is show them what can be done. Show them what a completed GameEx setup can do. Show them how you guys and how they can make it their own. So no better way of doing that than seeing what you guys have come up with. that way it encourages others to push what can be done and maybe bring some new ideas. So if you could help out that will be great. I will be modifying my setup to give it a bit of WOW factor and showcasing it in a vid to show how and what can be done now that you are setup. But i would be great if I can showcase some of your setups too so people can see even more ideas, possibilities and of course just show off your work. If you got any nice builds, custom themes, ideas, remakes or anything that can help out that would be great! I will help out in any way I can to help you do this as I know you all may not have any means to record themes etc. PLEASE can share files, pictures, videos or anything it would be a massive help for me and an even bigger help for the community! Then.... well we are getting stuck into Evolution!
  21. Hello I am a newbie to Gameex and I am trying to get daphne working. I am using version 14.54 and have configured Mame successfully and I believe that I have Daphne configured correctly using the Advanced configuration. My issue is that I cannot get Daphne to show up in the Menu when I start Gameex. Is this because I have not paid for Gameex and therefore do not receive the customized Menu option? I have used the custom menus under Gameex and added Daphne but it still does not show up when I start Gameex. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong? Thank you, Paul
  22. GameEx VS GameEx Evolution

    I took a little look about GameEx evolution, but still can not understand what your proposal? Watch the video promoting GameEx evolution really noticed some things in it that does not exist in the normal GameEx. What I could not understand was why create a new version rather than simply updating the old GameEx? Why create this new GameEx? There will be things that GameEx evolution will be able to do the old GameEx will not be? Or vice versa? Why create this new GameEx not simply add their resources in the old GameEx? This would not be possible? Ps. I do not want to create personal polemics. They are sincere doubts I have and would like to hear the answer. Thank you very much.
  23. After the updates Xpadder plugin has stopped working properly. Until about three weeks ago everything worked perfectly. I noticed that when I start a game Xpadder plugin is open but to push the buttons mapped to the joystick they do not turn on the light. To keep clicking on the tab of the first and second player the xpadder begins to respond to commands. Then I go back to the emulator and the controls will function. With the game already started and without the controls work I press the windows key. After that I go on the icon Xpadder which is open to check it is working. Tightening the buttons but the lights that show the keys are being pressed not light. So I'm browsing the various tabs representing each joyticks connected in xpadder. Doing it xpadder starts to work, and shall be response of buttons pressed. Xpadder updated the program yet nothing has changed. I added the "neogeo" files and "super Nintendo", as are examples of emulators that I'm not working correctly with more xpadder. ps.I'm not really lucky. Every update something stops working. log.txt NEO-GEO.ini NINTENDO (16 Bits-2 Players).ini xpadder.log GameEx.ini
  24. Currently I use the "Virtual Drive Loader" plugin in the following systems: FM TOWNS MARTY (UNZ) SEGA SATURN (SSF) TURBO GRAFX 16 CD (MAGIC ENGINE) Command lines that used were these: Mounting CD: -mount scsi, G, "[RomPathFull]" Dismantling CD: unmount G Everything worked perfectly. But after I formatted the computer such command lines no longer work. When I try to run any of these systems comes this message: "syntax error in parameter mount". I already checked in Daemon Tools program and associations with the files were made. When I click on cd image it is mounted. The conclusion I draw is that there's something wrong with the command line used in the plugin Virtual Drive Loader. In summary: I think with the update Daemon Tools perhaps the command line has changed. Could someone tell me which command lines could work? because with the current command line virtual drive can not be created. FM TOWNS MARTY.ini GameEx.ini log.txt SATURNO.ini TURBO GRAFX CD.ini
  25. Gameex/LEDBlinky- Preview Issue

    hi there i seem to have troubles setting top my gameex/ledblinky system. i managed to get it working almost perfectly, but now i'm stuck at 'almost' which kind of drives me crazy. problem is the 'preview layout / control panel' function: it works perfectly on MAME games but not so on other systems (like commodore amiga / c64..): whenever i select a game it shows the correct led colors for the corresponding control panel and then reverts to the color- scheme of the frontend as intended. however, selecting non- MAME games previews all led's as 'off'. starting the game *will correctly load the default layout for that emulator*, so gameex seems to send the correct game/system info to ledblinky when starting a game, but not when previewing it. so, to me, it looks more like a gameex- issue than a ledblinky one, which is the reason why i post here. any help would be greatly appreciated. my system: windows 7 on a 'bootcamped' mac mini, gameex/ledblinky in their newest versions, a control panel with a howler arcade controller (which by the way works perfectly for me but is the reason why i can't use gameex's led- plugin as -in my understanding- it does not support that controller).
