Am i right to assume we can change the .exe only if i want a smooth update from a previous version, or shall we add some other files ?
I understand the need to update the config file as well maybe since there are more functionalities included in updated versions.

Thanks for your feedback !

General Discussion & Help / Version 0.8.13 - issue with controls
« on: September 21, 2017, 12:28:15 AM »

I have updated my fully working version (RetroFE 0.8.6) with the following elements from Release 0.8.13 :

- Core directory
- layouts / Aeon Nox directory
- layouts / Default 16x9
- controls.conf updated with the previous .conf top part of my working version

My problem is that the controls are not working within the RetroFe interface anymore, however when I am playing games it is working due to the fact that the emulator takes over I guess.
I am attaching both logs in case this would help, i checked them but nothing really indicative to be honest. I just noticed that before i was missing some commands I have added for the playlist but that's all.

Thanks for your input

General Discussion & Help / Dreamcast Collection and Best Emulator

Do you know whether the Dreamcast Collection is in progress and which emulator would be the most adapted for a Windows 7 OS ?


General Discussion & Help / Tutorial section

Maybe a Tutorials section approved by the admin would be a good solution to skim the numerous information in the general/help section.
Once you believe the tutorial is accurate and relevant, you guys move it to the Tutorials section.
I believe, this would increase the value of the forum and the number of contributors on top of the wiki documentation.


Feature Requests / Suggestions / Collection category
« on: May 14, 2017, 02:57:12 PM »

I believe it would be good as well to have a collection section in the artwork section.
People could post their workings and help RetroFe to be fully complete as the other front ends.

Feature Requests / Suggestions / Game Manual
« on: May 14, 2017, 01:22:00 AM »

Just a quick suggestion in regards to the game level interface:

Would that be possible to have the game manual option to read as well, source format would be .pdf so not sure whether this can be embedded/read within the interface...

General Discussion & Help / Amstrad GX4000
« on: May 12, 2017, 05:45:34 PM »

I have added few more collections without any issue but one of them is causing me one and I don't know whether it comes from the loader command line or MAME itself.
The error message appearing from MAME is the following :

The driver requires images to be located in the following device(s) : "cartridge"

I can then navigate through my roms but nothing is really happening going forward...
I checked and I have the bios for the gx4000 so I believe the system requires something else special.

If someone had already seen that issue, your help is then welcome ! :)


General Discussion & Help / Shortcut - RetroFE
« on: April 24, 2017, 08:43:29 PM »

I am about to finalize my arcade machine and the whole system automation when booting it. By doing so I am encountering issues that some others may have already noticed but no information on the forum so I share if this thread can help.
Indeed, when moving or creating a new shortcut, the retrofe.exe application is running without any problem but the emulators are not launching correctly.
This may come from the fact that the "cmd.exe" does not start from the Retrofe repository.

Below the log showing the problem when I create and use the new shortcut :

2017-04-24 20:09:05] [INFO] [Launcher] Checking to see if "D:\ROM$\MAME\" exists  [Yes]
[2017-04-24 20:09:05] [INFO] [Launcher] Attempting to launch: "emulators\MAME\mame64.exe" "3countb"
[2017-04-24 20:09:05] [INFO] [Launcher]      from within folder: emulators\MAME
[2017-04-24 20:09:05] [ERROR] [Launcher] Failed to run: emulators\MAME\mame64.exe
[2017-04-24 20:09:05] [INFO] [Launcher] Completed

[2017-04-24 20:09:19] [INFO] [SDL] DeInitializing
[2017-04-24 20:09:20] [INFO] [RetroFE] Exiting

When checking the properties of the original shortcut placed in the main repository, some extra commands are added to run the app.

%COMSPEC% /c start "" core\retrofe.exe

and there is a option which my windows do no tunderstand when I test it in Run : %CD%
is that related to the command Change Directory ?

If you have the same issue or a clue, I d be happy to know.

Thanks very much !

« on: April 14, 2017, 07:13:22 PM »

How do you get rid of the disclaimer when running a game, i read on other forum yhat you need to compile your own exe.
Is there a simpler solution by any chance ?

thanks !

I was wondering what common settings you have used in the mame.ini file so that we can use the GPU instead of the CPU.
