  1. Really? Ill try this when ive put the kids down later... So the option must totally dissapear when locked down then
  2. Is it possible in big box to say Tap the 1p button to "enter / start game" etc. But instead of having a dedicated "exit/back" button hold down the 1p button for a second or so and it sends the "exit/back" command? . Would really help clean up arcade cabs losing a button
  3. Ive read this, it doesnt explain where or how to tell each of the content directories (megadrive,gamegear,master system) to simply look at either of the 3 systems bezels folder and match the bezel to the rom name when loading. All i can do is load a game>go into overlays and pick ONE SPECIFIC GAME Its crazy, when you save that as a content directory it of course uses that one game bezel for ALL bezels! Which is ridiculous, I find it amazing only you have even tried to help spread over this and another thread. No one obviously knows. Simply, when megadrive loads a game i want the system
  4. Hi guys. How do i get my genesis plus gx core to point to all my individual bezels like it once did? So megadrive/master system/game gear to each of their respective bezel folders then it chooses the bezel according to the rom loaded... Like it did up until recently when i must have messed something up!! Why is there no way to simply set a path and tell retroarch to use that damn folder to pluck its overlay bezel from! Instead your only option in overlays is a specific game bezel. Anyway here is a video to explain clearer... Really dont wanna go through almost 1000 games and set the
  5. one other thing Dragon to add to the mix..... Because this Sega core controls my Master system, and Game gear systems as well as Megadrive I am getting some mixed over bezels too... For instance, i just loaded Chuck rock on the megadrive, yet got the Chuck rock Master system bezel (Andre aggassi tennis did the same thing so there will be alot more). I have a Gamebezels / Megadrive folder, and a Gamebezels / master system folder.... Each bezel is different... I just want to know how i point my Megadrive Core to only read whats in the Megadrive bezels folder.. that would fix it all.. So fru
  6. - Ok so i set "Save on exit" to false, and then went into overrides and "saved the core". - So that is done. - Regarding the Retroarch.CFG, this is what i have in the input_overlay section - What is "Master of weapon"?, in terms of why is it there? I am not seeing that game bezel at all repeatidly.. Also note that there is NO Streets of rage2 bezel noted?! input_overlay = ":\overlays/GameBezels/Megadrive/Master of Weapon (Japan).cfg" input_overlay_enable = "true" input_overlay_enable_autopreferred = "true" input_overlay_hide_in_menu = "true" input_overlay_next = "nul" inpu
  7. Yes it is save on exit im sure. Ok thank you for your help im going to look into it this morning and feed back to you. Thanks so much, fingers crossed
  8. Hey thanks Damageinc - yes its retroarch, sounds like a nightmare you had... Wow i really hope there is a way to solve this seemingly simple problem. All i need to do is to wipe clear it thinking to use Streets of Rage 2 as the overlay for every rom... There has to be a config file or Path structure somewhere.. :(:( really hoping someone can help me here
  9. hi guys - Within my Megadrive (Genesis) set for some reason most of my games load with Streets of Rage 2 as my overlay / Bezel. Its driving me mad!. Every time i load a game, i open retroarch and goto overlays, and it says under "Overlay Preset" "Streets of rage 2"!... I have 800 Megadrive roms, I have ALL of the overlays but for some reason it is insisting on showing this one most times. I dont want to have to go through every single game and change to the right one. I DOnt quite get why it isnt doing it EVERY time though. I would say its just over 50% of the time.. So pretty much most
  10. Hi guys. So in my cabinet bigbox is locked down and doesnt show the game details screen. Ive noticed the Favorites Star icon at the beginning of the A-Z bar at the bottom. What is the short cut key to add /remove games from this i assume favorites list? Cheers
  11. Ah ok, the good thing i only need to change the Gamma cont and bright levels all the other HLSL settings are find in the Mame.ini.. So fingers crossed all is good.. :)cheers mate
  12. Cant believe it. Ive fixed it. So for some reason im sure when you go into the sliders section after loading a game that any changes didnt save. However they bloody do! And they save PER GAME too. So its simple. Chuffed.
  13. yeah i had thought of that, and hoped it just effected Umk3 but it effects others too... i have over 2000 and damned if i am going through all and writing a new ini for each.. wow.. could you imagine... I have been trying to find a middle ground but thats impossible.. my test games are SSF2T, Killer instinct, and UMK3... its impossible to get all 3 where they are kind of acceptable... SF and Ki work well together but when i up the brightness etc to cater for UMK the other 2 look ridiculously bright.. Is there any kind of HLSL which really is a middle ground?.. i was wondering if it
  14. haha thanks for your eloquent reply - much appreciated. Now, if i can wrack yours or any in the audiences brains one last time.... What do you guys do when you apply HLSL and it darkens some games?.. I love the look, curved screen etc, however i pop SS2T on and its just about ok, Ken is abit bright white, it SHOULD be turned down a tad however when i pop on Ultimate MK3 its dark.. and so are many other games... What the hell do i do to make sure all games are the right brightness / contrast / gamma (or whatever it is).. nightmare
  15. hi Guys - I have a vertical.ini, a mame.ini, and a Horizont.ini.... I created Vertical, and Horizonal ini files to add the small line of using a generic bezel for when either orientation game is loaded AND has no bezel.. however, i can just put this artwork line into the Mame.ini file as if the game isnt a vertical game it must be a horizonal, and therefore just read the Mame.ini instead - leaving no need for Horizont.ini Or am i missing something here?
  16. Just thought of a reason why this may not be a good solution.... IT is good to save scores on Ki - if this resets each time to a save state then all progress would be lost.. So it would be a toss up whether you want to save high scores OR always be greeted with the intro music.. hmm
  17. hi guys - it frustrated me that the "blue bar" initial sound test causes the fantastic Ki intro music's not to play so i have an idea.... I know how to fix it temporarily but it needs to be applied each time you boot the rom up, and you need access to the keyboard to do it. Not good on an arcade set up. Is it possible to save the state of a game and any time i then re-load that game it starts from the saved state every time?. If so, then i would save the state immediately the machine begins after i have done the fix so the intro plays in all its glory. thanks

    Hi all - I dont suppose you have had any more thoughts on this have you? Thanks alot
  21. you are so super duper! thanks mate legend.. I saw that before but disregarded it because it read as thought it wanted just ONE default bezel for ALL roms... worked a treat thanks
  22. hi all - so for about 90% of my Mame roms i have 4:3 bezels fine.. however there are some which just leave an ugly black bordered screen. Is it possible for roms that have no bezel to use a default bezel? Same question for Daphne please which currently i have no bezels at all for. thanks guys

    Ok - so... - Went into ..Config/Genesis_Plus_GX/ and moved the Sonic CD cfg file out of there. I did notice that there were over 1500 other CFG files in there too (must be Megadrive, game gear etc too) - Loaded bigbox > opened Sonic CD > opened retro arch > Changed to Auto > saved core override (in the overrides menu) > Restart..... When i press restart it doesnt actually restart, just goes back to bigbox... So i reloaded Sonic and same problem - Checked and its reverted back to Pal and not saved... I am assuming amongst those 1500 CFG files there is ano
