Mike, is it possible for you to do something like this for me?
Basicially, what I want to do is re-create the Nintendo PlayChoice-10 as closely as possible (a little better, actually since mine will be configured for all 52 games, rather than "only" 10), since mame only emulates one at a time.
I already created my images and have it mostly working. They are something like this (this is a real, non-emu screenshot, but it's close):
I have 6 instances of Mala installed, one for each page of 10 and the first one is like this:
-Arcade Classics 1
-Arcade Classics 2
I already have them configured to start another Mala installation for the first five via bat file with a gamelist of 10 more games. Solar Jetman and Captain Skyhawk launch their respective games, of course. If I choose Nintendo Hits, for example, I want it to load this "other" mala, with a different game list:
Mario's Open Golf
Rad Racer II
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
When I exit "this" mala, I already have it configured to load the first mala on exit. The problem is that the first mala won't start the other malas with the error, "Mala is already running".
All of the Mala installs are identical, but in different locations with different rom lists. Just wondering if something can be done to allow two simultanious malas to run, or close out of the first mala when I select a "game".
So I already have all of the images I want and have everything configured how I want except for the above issue, and since I have the malas configured for running with no text, only images, I can't get the words "gamelistcenter" to go away, over my images.
I can email you everything I have and give you, say $10 or so if you can fix these two issues for me.
