AAE (Another Arcade Emulator)

Recommended Posts

I loaded this the other day using Colpipes No Intro AAE at ArcadePunks.  Comes with instruction doc from colpipes so pretty easy to get up and running.

I am also trying to get AAE to work.  I'm finding that even when using rocketlauncher, whenever I exist AAE my entire windows 10 machine loses resolution and color and gets stuck like that.  Have to reboot.  Anyone get past this?

Did you find a solution? I'm getting the same issue. I thought it was related to Rocketlauncher but it happens when I run emulator directly. This never happened before. Been using this thsi emulator for years without problems.

I finally decided to update to Windows 10 and I am experiencing this exact problem. Does anyone have a fix for this?

Very strange. I have AAE installed and configured here on both my Windows 10 machines (updated to the latest 2004 build) and don't have any problem exiting and not having the resolution go back to what it should. Perhaps someone with the problem show their AAE.ini file and I can see if I see any obvious difference which may contribute.

Also, I am running Nvidia cards on both my machines. What video cards are in the machines with problems?

Do you use RocketLauncher?

Although there were some differences in the graphics section between your ini file and mine, I was able to change my settings to match yours and continue to have no issues. I am leaning toward a video driver issue with your AMD card and AAE. This would not be surprising since AAE is so old.

I assume you have tried different video driver versions to see if any change the behavior?

I am using Nvidia and have the same issue however I was able to fix it through RocketLauncher by changing the Exit_Mode module setting to ProcessClose. Basically, if you exit out of AAE through task manager or through a batch script or similar, the issue won't happen. If you exit through AEE by pressing Esc, it happens. With this information anyone should be able to get it working even if they're not using RocketLauncher. 

 

dragon57, did you test by launching and exiting AAE.exe directly through the Esc key?

My test was exiting AAE.exe directly via the ESC key. No issues here that way. Very strange.

That is strange. If you're willing to upload your AAE emu I can test on my end.
