An odd issue with Naomi/DEmul: Using LaunchBox results in NVRAM/progress not saving

Recommended Posts

Hello all!! I am a proud lifetime purchaser of LaunchBox and after messing with it for 2 weeks now, I have only come across one issue, which should indicate how great of a program it is!

I am using DEmul in LaunchBox so that I may play some of my favorites like House of the Dead 2, Marvel vs Capcom 2, etc on my MAME cabinet. However, there is a very weird issue. I am not sure if it is a glitch or what. 

If I enter DEmul by double clicking the executable and running the games that way, games save just fine. A good example of a game that needs to save is Marvel vs Capcom 2, because you don't want to lose the experience/unlocked characters every time you exit the game. However, if you use LaunchBox, that is exactly what happens. 

For whatever reason, when launching any Naomi/DEmul games with Launchbox, the NVRAM file is never written/updated. Only when Demul is opened normally in Windows will it save the NVRAM file progress.

I am using the latest version of LaunchBox with the latest version of DCEmul in a Windows 10 environment if it helps!

Does anybody know what is going on? I saw one other member here complain about this but there wasn't any fix posted. Any advice to this very strange issue would be greatly appreciated!

Are you using the ahk script to exit the emulator in LB?

 

This is the script I see: 

 

; This section closes Demul when pressing Escape
$Esc::
{
	Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}}
}

Is that OK?

yes that is force closing the emulator and that is why it doesn't save if you can somehow get escape to work as alt+F4 then it would save correctly

See if changing it to this fixes it.
 

$Esc::
{
    SendInput{!F4}
}

OK, I am not sure how this would be possible in Windows. Is there a way to do it with the script?
