RocketLauncher Pause & GroovyMAME
« on: January 23, 2017, 10:42:17 am »
Just wondering if anyone successfully uses GroovyMAME with the RocketLauncher Pause menu? Pause will come up fine but when exited, GM does not reopen & I can hear the game sound running in the background. I have tested with default GM 0.181 & have tested Pause with regular default MAME 0.181 which works correctly. Any ideas?

It's a miracle that it doesn't crash.

So you're saying there's a chance?!?

I was able to get it slightly working setting the MAME module global settings to pause method 2 but the only problem now is when Pause is exited, the GM is running in windowed mode and not full screen. I can then Alt+Enter to return to full screen using the keyboard. I tried modifying the module in the HaltEmu and RestoreEmu section to add an AHK send command for Alt+Enter to return it to full screen automatically with no luck. I was able to add a AHK sleep time in there because when it returned from Pause it would have lagging sound then video would play which it now seems to come out of Pause relatively smoothly.

Any other suggestions for the windowed mode not being full screen?
