Dual Monitors and MAME opening up on the wrong monitor.


Recommended Posts

I have dual monitors. Which means I can have the marquee displayed on one and the Big Box menu on the other. I want MAME to open on my 2nd screen but it keeps opening up on the 1st. I dont know how to go about doing this. MAME is the only emulator that seems to be doing this. Please, I need some help!

I had to use mame64.exe -verbose to work out which monitor I needed:

I'm sorry, but there is no "Mame.ini". I found "Ui.ini" but that has not the Data to change the monitor.

Mame0221b 64bit

Either run 

Quote

mame64.exe -cc

to create it, or start without a rom and from the UI choose save configuration option.

Not working for me, and I don't know how (or where) to do this verbose thing. Can you guys think in some alternative?

Right click any MAME game in LB, pick Open MAME.

When MAME starts, double click Configure Options, and than double click Save Configuration.

You should now have a mame.ini in your MAME directory. You can edit this file manually, or a lot of the settings can be set in the same Configure Options section of Mame. (Just remember to save after making changes)
