  • I want to build my own arcade controls!

I'm emulating F355 in Demul 0.7 (last version). The game opens 4 windows and the 4th window of demul was black but it need to be the active window for the controls to work. if you defocus it, it the game will not listen to the controls.

This is a huge problem because the other 3 screens are showing the game. Specially the center screen, which needs to be focused to play (if you want to maximize it).

Can this be solved?

  • As I pass, do I give you the ass or the crotch?
The only way to control the three screen version is by keeping the fourth black screen in focus. Rather than trying to maximise the centre screen of the three screen game, why don't you try and track down one of the single screen version roms? Edit: I think the version you want is called

Yeah unless you are doing a special setup that one is far more useful.

Probably not worth starting a new thread but I made two "marquee/bezel" backgrounds for these games for anyone who is interested:


I also made a video to help set up the advanced controls:
