Mame is becoming windowed or losing focus in Bigbox while playing.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

When playing, especially on games with lots of button smashing, mame has begun losing focus. I was running through rocketlauncher, and when I was doing that mame would entirely disappear minimized to the task bar. I could exit bigbox and click on mame on the task bar and the game would be running.

To try to fix it I switched to launching Mame directly from bigbox. That helped but now the games become windowed instead of minimized. You get the widows menu bar at the top of the game and you can see bigbox behind the game.

I am not sure what to do now. Any suggestions?

I'm using Windows 7 if that makes any difference.

Have you checked your MAME.INI setting to make sure it is set to full screen? Set the window switch to zero.
