Mame32, WinXP, PNG Screenshot ?
« on: July 09, 2002, 09:11:04 pm »
Hello everyone.... just a quick question in case anyone has run accross this and if it might have a quick fix or if I am just doing something wrong.

I just now got to playing around with Windows XP as I always used to run Windows2000 in all my Mame cabs.  Anyways, with 2 different setups, one with an ATI 3dRage and another with a Geforce 2 GTS when running Mame32 under WinXP Pro, on the side where the Screenshots are supposed to be, all I get is a GREY box.  I noticed when I hold down the first mouse button on the Top menu bar and drag and drop the whole Mame32 program around, for a split second I can see the PNG screenshot.  but then when I let go and drop Mame32 it just turns to grey again.

I was just wondering if maybe it has to do with PNG support in Windows XP or if there is a simple fix or whatever... if anyone has run accross this, please let me know.  Thanks much to anyone...

Nevermind... I actually found this info below on the Mame32 Webpages Forum in a min... I am a big time slacker ;)  anyways... I thought I would post it here for anyone that may have had the same problem.

The screenshot area was grayed out in Windows XP because of the inclusion of a preliminary file in Mame32 version .54 called Mame32 manifest.  Remove that file to view the screenshot area artwork again.


So if anyone is running Windows XP and has Grey screenshots, just delete the ole'file named mame32.manifest and it's all go from there.
