    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

    Are you using mameuifx64 version 1.75.1 by chance? I’m having the same exact issues with getting the error (see attached pic) and my computer locking up. I need to reboot every time I try and fail. I’m using this script below and using this version of mame. What am I doing wrong?

    START “” “[STARTDIR]Launch\VPXSTARTER.exe” “Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator” 2 2 10
    c:
    cd “c:\Mame”
    START “” “[diremu]\mameuifx64.exe” “[GAMEFULLNAME]”

    I am lost! can somebody help me with this please? Am I supposed to do something with the game file in the game manager as well? I see something about needing to specify the TITLE in custom parameters but I don’t know what it means. I’ve only downloaded a few games to test out and they run on mameuifx64 alone, but I can’t get pinup to play them. :scratch:
