Emulatorlist and Number of players

Postby the_gamer » Fri May 27, 2011 10:47 am

Hi folks,

I am creating a layout myself. It really worked fine but I have a few Problems:

If the resolution of the layout is another than the resolution of my system, wahcade doesn't change the resolution of the monitor. Is there a way to have wahcade change the resolution to the resolution of my layout when it is started and switch it back when it is closed?

I want to create a list to change the emulator I use from. I can only find how to edit the layout of one emulator. But i want wahcade to start with a list of all emulators I had it on like:
MAME
Dosbox
...

and displaying the gamelist after the emulator is chosen. How to do that? I really can't figure it out how to do it. And when this is done, is there a key to go back from the gamelist to the emulatorlist? I found this: http://www.webwonderland.net/arcade/zebra_layouts.php But this website doesn't tell me how he did it and it seems to be for mala and not wahcade/mamewah:(

And my last problem is: I would like to display the number of players a game is playable with. But I only find publisher, Controller type etc but nothing to show the number of players in wahcade. Is that possible?

Thanks a lot in advance:)

You're only option is to set the layout resolution then set Wah!Cade to open fullscreen.

Wah!Cade simulates (for lack of a better term) MameWah behaviours, not Mala. Wah!Cade has the gamelist/emulatorlist available through the menu, press the 2 key when in Wah!Cade. This is the only place it is a available.

You can configure keys to cycle through either if you wish through the setup program

And my last problem is: I would like to display the number of players a game is playable with. But I only find publisher, Controller type etc but nothing to show the number of players in wahcade. Is that possible?

Mame doesn't support player information, only option is to use a graphic in the layouts displaying it and copy the graphic to the gamenames in one of your art directories.

Thanks, that helps a lot! Espacially the emulatorlist is really needed. Great :)
