BigPEmu Launcher
« on: February 01, 2023, 06:41:52 PM »
Does anyone here know how the launcher should be set up for the new Atari Jaguar emulator BigPEmu? I have tried this but it only launches the actual emulator, not a game directly:

executable = emulators\BigPEmu\BigPEmu.exe
arguments = -batch "%ITEM_FILEPATH%"

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

By the way, if you haven't tried this emulator and you like Atari Jaguar, you should check it out. It runs very well and much better than the Virtual Jaguar core for RetroArch.

Reading this, I think the -batch option should be after the filepath: https://www.richwhitehouse.com/jaguar/index.php?content=userman#sect_19

Thanks for your reply phulshoff. Pipmick from the CoinOPS discord suggested this and it work:

executable = emulators\BigPEmu\BigPEmu.exe
arguments = "%ITEM_FILEPATH%"

Only other thing I would share is if you want to be able to exit the emulator using a controller, add -devmode to the end of the arguments line. This adds an exit option to the bindings section of the emulator menu which allows you to assign keys to exit the emulator.

Thanks for your help on this Pipmick!
