Running MAME on Secondary Monitor

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I know you can run GameEx on a second monitor. But how do I get MAME to run on a secondary monitor instead of the primary one as well?

Thanks!

awesome thx for the help...ill check it out later tonight. hopefully it works...!

hey could someone please help me out...i got this to work WAY back...but now i totally forgot how to do it now. Ive been trying for the last 3 hours :(

I want MAME to run on my secondary monitor not my primary...and u can do this according to the MAME docs

http://mamedev.org/s...indows.txt.html

If you look at line 222 it talks about how to do it but i cant seem to get it right.

---This is what the mame.ini file looks like that has to be altered. Could someone please tell me what to edit to have MAME only run on my secondary monitor fullscreen please?

I didn't actually try it but It looks like this to me, assuming that your second monitor is #2.

I didn't check, but it's possible MAME uses the first screen as 0 so the second one would be 1. I only have one monitor, so I just leave it as "auto". Either way, it's a simple enough change, so you should be golden in a couple launches!
