Has this been applied to retrofe by now?  I would like to use a 2nd monitor to display the game marquee with multiple different emulators.

Or should I be doing this with a compiled Autohotkey script? I think I just answered my own question.
General Discussion & Help / Focus issues

Is there a batch file or something that someone can share with me that ensures RetroFE has focus when launched? I see the distros from the various scenes use an exe to launch RetroFE instead of the standard shortcut. I'm guessing the exe fixes the focus issue and launches joytokey or other tools. I could just use one of those exes, but then I'd feel like I was stealing from someone else's work. Any help would be appreciated. Writing batch files is not one of my strong points.

Thanks but I was able to figure out it was a DLL driver that came with the sound card software causing the problem so deleting the software and using native Windows drivers fixed it so back to normal.
Nothing comes to mind. Perhaps there's a bad interaction between your sound driver and the gstreamer decoder library. Any particular video that you can trace it back to?
General Discussion & Help / RetroFE Crashing After New Sound Card Installed
« Last post by netsurfr on January 17, 2022, 05:24:00 PM »
After installing a Startech 7.1 USB sound card & driver on my Windows 10 setup, Retrofe randomly crashes while in attract mode (shuffling between random videos of gameplay in my collections). It only happens when RetroFE is in attract mode. When I disable the sound card in device manager then the problem goes away but, obviously I get no sound, so it's certainly related to the driver/sound card. Any ideas as to what to try? No errors on retrofe log. It just quits after a few minutes of attract mode.

thx for the quick response Pieter, ok i ll give a try then via the interface and see how it changes the file then so that i can edit directly.
So i was not that far from finishing reconfiguring the whole thing to get it working fully !

cheers and long life to retro FE !

The two are separate configuration files. MAME controls are handled by the ctrl setting, the .cfg files, and can be edited from the MAME menu as well. Just press tab and edit the controls.

Hi there,

i am tweaking a bit my arcade machine and it s like i am new to it again, one quick question about mame, where is the line which tell to mame to use the same control config as per the front end retrofe.

basically i can navigate through my retroFE interface but when i launch the games with MAME emulator, the controls are off.

Thanks !
