Some Emulators show Top Windows Bar (In Maximus Arcade)
« on: December 16, 2018, 09:05:23 pm »
Hello all. just started building my arcade :) loving the experience. I have a question about the maximus arcade front end. 

My PS1 and Mame emulators look good with maimus, But SNES (SNES9x-x64) and NES (Mesen emulator) show the top gray windows bar (where is says:  "File   Emulation  Input   Sound   Video    Help "). 

Ive set maximus to "maximize" and ive tried a bunch of scenarios, but cannot figure out how to make it hide the window bar.   I know F11 on the keyboard will hide it, but im looking for a way to hide it so i can make my arcade setup look official  :)

If anyone knows a solution or knows what im doing wrong,  please let me know  :)
I appreciate it. 

I'm not sure if it matters, but im running it on :
dell XPS 8300 PC with windows 7 home premium and i5

Make sure you're setting the emulator itself in fullscreen/maximized on launch as that's where you'd control that aspect.

Most emus default to windowed operation so you need to enable it within the emulator program itself.
