    Marquee Magician 2.1

    Marquee Magician 2.1 1. Added option in context menu to 'Change Path' you can change the path to a file or folder in an existing window. This should make it much easier to set up multiple systems. (GamePimp) 2. Added option in context menu to turn on and off 'Snap to screen'. In theory you should be able to display images across more than one monitor. (Untested) Videos of cabinets using Marquee Magician: http://youtu.be/is_CAWJfiFo ******************************************************************************************** Marquee Magician 2.0 What's New? 1. Added a new set of commands to 'Nudge' windows. You can make a window larger, smaller, and move the image 1 pixel at a time to fine tune your layout. 2. Added the ability to edit an existing system so that you can make adjustments. If you edit a system, it can only be saved using the current template, and system names. 3. Marquee Magician will now change the resolution for you for emulators that won't run at your desktop resolution. Previously, Marquee Magician would display the images, then the emulator would start and change the resolution, which would move the images on the second monitor. This should fix that problem. Use {Ctrl-R} and enter the resolution for your emulator. All 4 values are required. 4. Once you copy an window, you can paste it multiple times without having to copy the original window again. 5. If you hover on an image, the path to the image is displayed in the upper left hand corner of the window. This is handy for windows with folders. 6. Added {Ctrl - Z} to undo. If you accidentally hit the wrong keys, Undo will put everything back the way it was. 7. Many improvments to enhance reliability. 8. Marquee Magician is now command line only. Usage: C:\Users\Matt\Desktop\Marquee Magician\Launch MM v2.0.exe "System" "[Rom]" where System is the name of your template, which can be found in the MM.ini file between []. EG. [Nintendo 64] Example: For Mame, Using 'Advanced Mame Settings (2) / Run on Launch' I have: "C:\My Marquee Magician\Launch MM.exe" "MAME Games" "[Rom]" and in the 'Run on Exit' I have: "C:\My Marquee Magician\Launch MM.exe" "GameEx" I only have one parameter in the 'Run on exit' because I only display static images while in GameEx. You can also use "C:\My Marquee Magician\Launch MM.exe" "Kill" to clear the screen, and not display additional images. Marquee Magician will automatically close, and clear the screen upon exit of GameEx. I have included my templates, MM.ini, and GameEx.ini for you to see how I set it up. Just so nobody gets confused the setup program is now called 'Template Creator' Marquee Magician 1.37 - Added support for HiToText. Marquee Magician 1.35 Added ability to customize statistics window colors. If you are an existing user, you will not have to re-do your templates. Run the setup program, Use {Ctrl G} set your colors, click ok, and exit the setup program. Marquee Magician 1.1 Added "Create Composite Images" option to the setup program. Marquee Magician can now merge multiple images into one image. To do this, first set up a template, and assign it to an emulator. Use {Ctrl}{PrintScreen} to select the composite image option. You will be asked to select an emulator, the location of your roms folder, and a folder to put the new images into. It takes about 2 seconds per image on my laptop to create an image. Hopefully, people with only one monitor will find this useful as a way to display more than 3 images in GameEx. This image was created with Marquee Magician (the actual image quality is better, using the .png extension.) Marquee Magician 1.0 Marquee Magician is a program to display images on a secondary monitor. An example of what Marquee Magician can do: Top left: CPWizard showing controls for this game Top middle: Cpanel image of this game (leaves no doubt as to the proper controls for the game) Top right: CPWizard image of the Admin buttons to run the emulator Bottom: Marquee for this Game This is sweet! Anybody could walk up, and run the cabinet with the directions displayed on the monitor! I probably should have shown Tempest in the Picture.
