able to run a launch script before and/or after launch?
« on: January 08, 2021, 08:05:12 PM »
I would like to run the following script before a rom is launched, is that possible?
Code: [Select]
REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Future Pinball\GamePlayer" /v "ArcadeMode" /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Not so familiar with Windows scripts, but technically you can create another batch file, which runs your scripts first (pre-execution), then starts the emulator, and optionally runs something else after the emulator has exited (post-execution).

Then just set up a RetroFE launcher to run your batch file.
