BigBox: Marquee on 2nd Monitor


Recommended Posts

This is by far the easiest Marquee Display setup I've used in a frontend to date. I have everything displaying fine but I do like playing the MAME dual-screen "Punchout, Arm Wrestling & Playchoice 10 games" though. I've been trying to find a way to force MAME to the front on both screens or turn off the BigBox Marquee during those games only. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I doubt anyone else needs this but I wrote a batch file that works by focusing MAME over BigBox:

echo (new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell")).AppActivate("mame64.exe"); > focus.js
cscript //nologo focus.js
del focus.js


Add the batch file as an additional application and check "Automatically Run After Main Application"
