Help / Game Media video sound playing in backgroun after launch
« on: February 08, 2017, 09:26:39 PM »
I don't know if this is a bug or I'm doing something wrong but here is my issue.
I'm trying to launch a steam game within a steam collection. My launcher script is looking like this:

Code: [Select]
executable = C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe
arguments = /c "%ITEM_FILEPATH%"

The game launches fine but the media video still runs in the background so sound can be heard even after launching the game. I suppse RetroFe isn't stopping video playback.
In collection settings I've set my roms to have a .bat extension and the .bat file in roms folder is looking like following:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
start C:\"Program Files (x86)"\Steam\steamapps\common\Odallus\DATA\Odallus.exe

Here is the relevant log:
Code: [Select]
[2017-02-08 21:56:54] [INFO] [Menu] Found: "C:\arcade\RetroFE\collections\Steam\menu.txt"
[2017-02-08 21:56:59] [INFO] [Launcher] Checking to see if "C:\arcade\RetroFE\collections\Steam\roms\Odallus - The Dark Call.bat" exists  [Yes]
[2017-02-08 21:56:59] [INFO] [Launcher] Attempting to launch: "C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe" /c "C:\arcade\RetroFE\collections\Steam\roms\Odallus - The Dark Call.bat"
[2017-02-08 21:56:59] [INFO] [Launcher]      from within folder: C:\Windows\System32
[2017-02-08 21:56:59] [INFO] [Launcher] Completed
[2017-02-08 21:57:15] [INFO] [SDL] DeInitializing
[2017-02-08 21:57:15] [INFO] [RetroFE] Exiting

This only happens while running Steam bat files, every other collection works fine and the media video stops playing (no sound heard) after launching the game.

I'm currenlty playing Super Ghosts and Ghouls trying to make it to the end with 2 continues. The game is quite a challange.
I remembe playing it on my SNES back in the days. I didn't expect the MAME version is A LOT harder.

Hi, this is my theme Animatic. You can see it in action here:

Download link here:

The theme makes use of Hyperspin recorded videos done by Critical Cid (videos can be found @, although you can add your own videos of course. If adding your own videos, please take care of the aspect ratio which should be 4:3.

General Discussion & Help / Question about video playback
« on: January 12, 2017, 10:03:25 AM »
I am currently working on a heavy oriented video theme and I noticed that the video files in RetroFE being played are washed out compared to to the same files in any other video player (VLC etc). I don't know what coded for video playback RetroFE uses but it seems like contrast is toned down and generally brightness is on a high side. Is there any possibility to alter brighntess/contrast settings?

Hi guys,
Here is my 8bit theme. It was designed for 16:9 aspect ration and tested on 1366x768 resolution, but I think 1080p should work out fine. Enjoy the theme and feel free to comment suggest.


Update 1: Added some more graphics, cleaned up the code.

Hi there, just came from the .com site and while I clicked on a forum, the forum opened as an iframe whithin the main site, which is kinda annoying because it isn't properly displayed and I get two scrollbars on longer posts. Could you point the link to the directly so it opens in it's own page?
