Tip: Quit Game on Idle


Recommended Posts

I'm using BigBox on a cabinet in a semi public location.  If someone chooses a game and walks away, I didn't want MAME running indefinitely.  I would rather return to BigBox so the next person knows he can choose a game.  I used the following script to exit MAME if there is no input for two minutes.  In LaunchBox's Manage Emulators window, choose MAME and Edit Emulator.  Then, on the AutoHotkey Script tab, enter the following:


SetTimer, Check, 6000

IfGreater, A_TimeIdle, 120000, Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}}

Hope it works for someone else too!
