    Auto Hotkey Scripts

    @jayjay Is there anyway I can encorporate this to a windows game? Would I need to make an actual autohotkey file and specify it in the game properties under launch box? Any advice is appreciated as usual. The script you put together works perfectly with redream and pcsx2 btw.

    Auto Hotkey Scripts

    This has done the trick!! I'm on the right path now! Now my issue is redream (The Dreamcast emulator) is amazing and i'd rather use that. This script you wrote works flawless for nullDC but not for redream. What I did is I setup redream in launchbox and its functioning fine, I just changed out the IfWinActive, nullDC to redream. I was able to catch the error that flashes and I thought I would share it with you. This has been an ONGOING project for an easy year now with spare time, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your input. @jayjay EDIT: SCRATCH THAT! It was my fault in the way I pasted something. It works flawless. So damn exciting! =D

    Auto Hotkey Scripts

    Ok, @jayjay I did the edit you added later and it does exactly as it should. My issue now is, it seems as though in the quickness of rotation, the app, in this case, nullDC assumes the resolution is portrait still, thus causing it to not go in to a normal fullscreen, it assumes the max resolution in one direction is as it was just milliseconds before, if that makes sense. Any ideas for that? Thanks a ton btw!!

    Auto Hotkey Scripts

    I'll give it a try today, thank you! I had the beginnings of that going yesterday, code wise, but i think the syntax was a little off as it left the pc thinking i was still holding a button. This is going to be for nullDC and PCSX2 currenlty. I'd also like to do this for a few Steam games if its possible. Anyways, i will let you know a bit later today....really appreciate the assistance!

    Auto Hotkey Scripts

    Hey guys, I am trying to come up with a full TATE/Portrait solution with the BigBox theme I have. Certain emulators etc need to be horizontal screen and not portrait in order to function correctly. I was thinking auto hot key might be the trick. I have iRotate installed and I think this will do everything I need. I just need to send the keystrokes and I have basically no understading of AHK. This is what I am thinking: ; This section closes nullDC when pressing Escape $Esc:: { Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} $^!Right:: } Basically, I'm trying to send CTRL ALT RIGHT on ESC so that the screen will go back to portrait for BigBox Also, I'd like to add CTRL ALT UP at the start of the scipt to set the screen orientation to horizontal on start up of emulator. Thanks for any and all help!

    Official Vertical Theme?

    Is there anyway I can edit this to just tilt everything 90 degrees to the right? A lot of games launching out of big box dont support portrait mode but do support TATE if that makes sense. Thanks!

    Big Box just scroll all my games?

    Done, thank you!

    Big Box just scroll all my games?

    Hello, The cab im working on for the family isnt going to have that many games. Is there a way I can have big box just scroll all the games rather than start out with platform view and scroll those? For example, I might only have three platforms on this and I thought it would be nice to just show all the games in one list and just attract mode that. Thanks in advance, Nick

    Poor emulator performance unknown

    Thank you so much for getting back to me. When I lower the internal resolution to 3X instead of 4X, all is good. CPU usage is all good showing next to nothing with things closed, about 1% with big box and nothing major with Demul. Just now in demul, 4X was NOT GOOD outside of bigbox....so I have no idea.... gonna play around with this but this should not be a big box specific problem at this point. So sorry. Tips and ideas are always appreciated though!

    Poor emulator performance unknown

    Wow, I see what you mean. I wonder why this is happening...now I really have no idea. OO My PC is Mid-High end, Windows 10 6700K 16GB of Ram GTX 980 500GB Evo SSD
  15. Please forgive me if this has come up before, but I could not find it anywhere. I absolutely love this whole system and have been working way too often trying to make something cool for the family. My problem is, I may have OCD so I am really trying to create professional results. Here we go... I have run in to similar issues with HyperSpin in the past, but hadn't noticed anything until I hit the Dreamcast generation with big box. Old school all works flawless with big box etc. HOWEVER, I have been tweaking Demul on a per game basis with internal res etc and have everything lined up nicely OUTSIDE of big box. When I go to play the games in big box however, I believe the CPU drag has a tremendous impact performance for an emulator like this. It goes from 60 FPS and stunning to all sounds coming out like the system just had a stroke and not being playable anymore. My question is: Is there a way to fix this? I am about to try a CPU priority tool to permanently set demul etc to a HIGH priority over big box. My thought being that emulators launching from big box will take priority all the sudden and run to their potential. OR is there a way to kill the big box process on game launch and have it reload after an emulator such as Demul is exited? Thanks to everyone in advance! Nick
