It's unfortunately hard to determine what's causing your issues, because there's not a lot of details here and it's not very easy to understand. Keep in mind that both Big Box and LaunchBox have separate configuration options for key or controller bindings to show the pause screens. I'm guessing that's the main issue you're running into. You'll need to configure Big Box separately.

Also, it would help going forward if you didn't end every sentence with a frown, lol.

We will need more details than that, like which emulator for a start. Also what are you using a keyboard or a controller, and have you changed any key bindings in the emulator.

Ok , i figured it out , im using Retroarch and found that i had a "hotkey binding" enabled wich broke only the reset , save , load state options in the pause screen.  Even if the key is not the same just having one enabled breack it.  Which bring me another question.... Using the Retro arch hotkey was practical to change save/load state # without having to take an active key on game pads. Is there anyway to activate  change save/load slot within the pause screen  ?

Not fully following you here. Can you re-explain?

I think what he is saying is he has changed the defaults in Retroarch so he uses a combo for states and the like with his controller, obviously that breaks the pause functionality as his keys are not default.

I don't understand his question at the end though:

But anyways, you can change the scripts to match different keys of course, but that would be a manual process.

I guess he wants to pick a save slot number rather than it automatically save in slot 0 or whatever the default is. That should be doable with the correct script, just like it is with MAME.

Oic, duh. Currently there's no way to set up a script to use a different slot unless the emulator has a UI for that.

F6 and F7 are save slot + and - by default in retroarch, although im not sure exactly how they work as i have never used them, i just save to the default.

Yeah thats is what i meant, changing slot number on the pause screen instead of it always saving to #0 or loading the #0.  Sorry Not 100% english here.  As i understand this is not curently available.

Any one having issues with PPSSPP, I have save and load game saves working fine. But resuming from pause the emulator goes into window mode, a double click with the mouse or 2 presses of Alt-Enter brings it back fullscreen. How can this be fixed.. a script of Alt-Enter after resuming from pause... where would that script go?

 

edit - running latest version 1.8.0

Hello. I'm only having Pause screen Issues with MAME.   I can get the Pause screen to come up. but when i select like "Exit Game"    or  "save State"   it just resumes the game.    I have not edited any Keys in MAME nor have i messed with any keybindings.  Pause Screens work just fine with all my other Emulators.   MAME 1.85 version.    Hope its not just because of the older version of MAME.   any advise?

@drewjbx See this link to working emulators and/or notes on issues.  I assume you are talking about the PPSSPP standalone rather than Retroarch.  That is known issue with standalone. If you use the RA core for PPSSPP seems to work fine.

thanks for link.. I am using the standalone and resolved the issue by adding this line twice in the pause settings 'on resume' tab. Brings it back to full screen.

sleep, 50
send !{Enter}

Yes, unfortunately this is caused by running a version of MAME that was released before they added the Direct Input keyboard functionality.

I'm having the same issue. I'm running a fresh install of mame 210.
