Get Black Screen when launching any game/emulator
« on: April 05, 2017, 02:43:48 am »
Hi guys,
Got the newest version of Maximus running and am trying to setup all the emulators. (Just learning how to get all this going)
Emulators and Games show up fine. Every emulator runs standalone. When launching any game from any emulator all I get is a black screen.
I have the right click option to exit but not games start?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Read the post I put up last week (specific for MAME), but it t has a bunch of tips I came across along the way.  Got that black screen myself at one point.  And depending on the system, I had to run some in "compatibility mode".  I'm running Windows 10, not all my Emus liked that.  This is more of an art, than a science.  It's the right combination of settings that seems to make it all work.

Hey Sandy,

Can you post a link to your post? New here and the forum wont let me hunt down your posts yet.

I have the same issue with setting up Maximus Arcade on my Cab. I have everything running, can hear the sounds that the games run and can hear the game reacting to the buttons and joystick, just I get a solid black screen.

Tried running MAME with long extensions turned on and still have the same issue :(

Any help is really appreciated.
