    Great job on the frontend guys.  I have VPX installed and running beautifully and I love it, but…

    I am having trouble getting mame to run in Pinup.  I am using the standard command line mame located on C:\mame

    When I run a mame game from pinupmenu I get an error message (see pic)

    Pinupmenu freezes and I have to use Task manager to shut it down.  Usually after it shuts down I lose my taskbar (start button etc) and I have to restart my computer before I can restart pinupmenu.

     

    Heres my current script for mame:  (I am definately not the man to see about scripts!!!!)

    START “” “[STARTDIR]Launch\VPXSTARTER.exe” 2 2 10
    c:
    cd “c:\mame”
    START “” “[diremu]\mame.exe “[GAMENAME]”

     

    I havent even bothered with the close script yet as I cant even get it to start.

    Mine for reference. Works for me. :

    Launch:

    START “” “[STARTDIR]Launch\VPXSTARTER.exe” “Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator” 2 2 10

    g:

    cd “G:\Emulators\MAME”

    START “” “[diremu]\mamelayplus.exe” “[GAMEFULLNAME]”

     

    Close:

    “[STARTDIR]LAUNCH\PUPCLOSER.EXE” PROC “mamelayplus” 2 1

    I changed the script to:

    START “” “[STARTDIR]Launch\VPXSTARTER.exe” “Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator” 2 2 10

    c:

    cd “c:\mame”

    START “” “[diremu]\mame.exe” “[GAMEFULLlNAME]”

     

    Now I dont get an error message and no crashing of pinupmenu, but the game still didnt start.  After trying to start the game I see the usual loading screen then I see my desktop.  I can push Q for quit and I go back to pinupmenu which I can exit out of normally by pushing x.

    Success!!!

    I installed mameuifx64 and used that instead, Now everything works.

    I only installed one mame game for testing so now I have to get some more installed.

     

    I noticed on Terrys videos he had a marque around his playfield.  Where can I get those?

    I also noticed he is using mamelayplus which I cant find.  Seems like the website is now dead.  Hopefully the marques were not part of that program.

     

    Heres my scripts for those interested:

    LAUNCH SCRIPT:

     

    START “” “[STARTDIR]Launch\VPXSTARTER.exe” “Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator” 2 2 10

    c:

    cd “c:\mame”

    START “” “[diremu]\mameuifx64.exe” “[GAMEFULLNAME]”

     

     

    CLOSE SCRIPT:

     

    “[STARTDIR]LAUNCH\PUPCLOSER.EXE” PROC “mameuifx64” 1 1
