Mame Second monitor?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have just purchased a second monitor and wanted to use it from games that have two screens like punchout, etc...

I see LB can show the marquee, but how can I get the second monitor to show the monitor playfield on game like PO?

Thanks!

For special two screen games like Punch Out, I would guess it's all in the game specific settings. It's nothing that LaunchBox or Big Box would be able to control. Otherwise I'm not sure.

Thanks!  Do you have a link to it? did a search on the forum and came up with this very thread.

Also, I noticed that sometimes when I launch a game, the marquee disappears.. is there a way to stop that from happening?

\\.\DISPLAY2
This is what you set the display to but with you monitor number I think my dual monitor used 0 and 1 not 1 and 2 though but I'm not upstairs to check and can't recall

Oh boy...  Looks a bit to techie for a noob like me.   Tried doing a search and stuff about filters and commandline, etc...  Do you have any suggestions on the keyword to use in there to get to the monitor part?

OSD PER-WINDOW VIDEO OPTIONS

Screen = auto edit this to be Screen = \\.\Display2 if that doesn't work try it with 1 instead.

Actually hmm I use this to play vertical games on my portrait monitor and horizontal games on my landscape monitor I'm not sure on how to do dual screen games.

OMG!!! DOS76 you are the TRUTH!  It works!  Just got knocked out by Sandman though....=(

It has been a long time since I tinkered with my cab and had to remember where the correct emulator I was using was located. gotta delete these old files and old emulators. I was away messing around with my pinball X cab for the last month and a half.  If you ever need help with that, im your man!  Thanks again, bro's.

Gonna go kick some more rear end in puchout!  OR rather, get my rear end kicked. lol.

If you can post exactly what you did to make this work that would be awesome :) Maybe someone else in the future will be looking for this.
