Prelaunch file problems
« on: February 02, 2018, 11:56:42 pm »
Hi guys - accidentally posted this in the tutorial section first: I hope a mod can delete that post.

I have set a batch file to run before I boot a MAME game.  (It essentially checks my controls are setup properly).

The problem I have is:

- the game starts booting (i.e:  mamep.exe is run) BEFORE the batch file has finished running.

- the batch file seems to "take the foreground".  So when it has finished running, I have a black screen - and need to ALT-TAB into the game/mame.

Can anyone help me with either of these problems?

Is there a better solution out there?
