Mala won`t start games from other Emulators
« on: September 04, 2016, 10:00:31 am »
Hallo, maybe you can help me with my Mala based problem that ist starting to drive me crazy. :badmood:

My Mala is all set up. Mame just works fine. But every other Emulator wonīt.

The romlist shows my roms, but when i try to start one of them, well nothing happens.

My other rom config is set up like in this tutorial video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XH9JdZQSQJ4

I set up my presets for every emulator like given, fusion and so on...

What about the pre- and post commands? Are they needed to get the Emulators to run?

Has anyone an example for how to set them up, cause im not really to much into that...
I already tried some, but it wasnīt helpful so far. :dizzy:

thankīs a lot!

I can try to help. That video is really long, can you point us to a place where it shows what you are describing?

My only other emulator right now is Model 2. I can share how I set that up, there isn't much to it but maybe it'll help somehow.

For model 2 in MAME:

Executable:
<your path>\Model2\emulator_multicpu.exe

Rom Path:
<your path>\roms

Rom extensions:
zip

Under the "execution" tab:
emulator_multicpu.exe %rom%

That's all I use and it runs whatever SEGA Model 2 game I have in my MaLa list. You may need different info for different emulators.

I don't know if that helps you, I'd kinda need more info. I'm still also pretty new to this so maybe someone else can help.

I think I solved a  big part of the problem!

I donīt know why but Mala 1.74 seemed to be the issue. I installed the beta version of 1.82 or so (the newest one) and it seems to work.  :dunno

I only tried fusion so far, but it worked after setting up Executable, Rom Path and execution.

In the Video it is from 12:47min, about setting up the command line. Not exactly sure if that is/was the main problem, but Iīm always coming back to this point.
