Here is a part of a log file from Mame ini log I got but it seemed the same as the log for the PCs that did not disconnect. I do get an error in the Windows event log though for the ones that disconnect

Application event viewer error:

Here is the code to be able to automate adding and dropping the bridge for Windows 10. If you have Windows 11 you should be able to use a netsh command to not have to bother with this but win 10 and older apparently do not have the bridge netsh capability and Microsoft is not adding as far as I know.. Just use Launchbox to set this to run before (with wait to exit) and after the game kicks off. It uses a free program called Sikuli that uses AI to find images and click it for you.

1) Create a folder in your documents folder called Mame4.sikuli
2) Create a add_bridge.bat file

--- Code: ---java -jar "C:\Users\Emulation\Documents\Mame4.sikuli\sikulixidewin-2.0.6-20230417.153928-17.jar" -r "C:\Users\Emulation\Documents\Mame4.sikuli\Mame_add_bridge.py"
timeout /t 4 /nobreak >nul
C:\Users\Emulation\Documents\Mame4.sikuli\mame_foreground.ahk

--- End code ---

3) Create a remove_bridge.bat file

--- Code: ---java -jar "C:\Users\Emulation\Documents\Mame4.sikuli\sikulixidewin-2.0.6-20230417.153928-17.jar" -r "C:\Users\Emulation\Documents\Mame4.sikuli\Mame_remove_bridge.py"
timeout /t 4 /nobreak >nul
C:\Users\Emulation\Documents\Mame4.sikuli\BigBox_foreground.ahk

--- End code ---

4) Create a BigBox_foreground.ahk file

--- Code: ---#Persistent
SetTimer, CheckBigBox, 100
return

CheckBigBox:
If WinExist("Network Connections")
{
WinClose
Sleep, 500 ;wait 500ms to make sure closes ncpa.cpl
}

IfWinExist, ahk_exe BigBox.exe
{
WinActivate
SetTimer, CheckBigBox, Off
        ExitApp
}
return

--- End code ---

and mame_foreground.ahk but change the exe you use for mame (may be mame.exe or mame64.exe but I use custom names so I can control each with Logitech app)

--- Code: ---#NoEnv
#SingleInstance force
#Persistent
Process, Close, mame_foreground.ahk
SetTimer, Checkmame, 100
return

Checkmame:
If WinExist, ahk_exe mame_SFRushRock.exe
{
WinActivate
SetTimer, Checkmame, Off
        ExitApp
}
else if WinExist, ahk_exe mame_SFRush2049.exe
{
WinActivate
SetTimer, Checkmame, Off
        ExitApp
}
else if WinExist, ahk_exe mame_calspeed.exe
{
WinActivate
SetTimer, Checkmame, Off
        ExitApp
}
else if WinExist, ahk_exe mame_SFRush.exe
{
WinActivate
SetTimer, Checkmame, Off
        ExitApp
}
else
{
SetTimer, Checkmame, Off
        ExitApp
}
return

--- End code ---

5) Create a Mame_add_bridge.py

--- End code ---

7) Download sikulixidewin-2.0.6-20230417.153928-17.jar for free to be able to run the Sikuli script. This may require installing a jdk first like OpenJDK21U-jdk_x64_windows_hotspot_21.0.3_9.msi for free

8 ) Downoad the attached image files to the same folder. Sikuli looks for these images.

9) Set Launhbox to kick off the add upon start (with wait to exist) and the remove after

Done. Now Sikuli opens up the network adapter screen, looks for the connection called "Ethernet", right clicks it, and says add to bridge. Then after closing, it finds the Ethernet connection, right clicks, and clicks remove from bridge. I have three types of Ethernet images where one is not clicked, one is clicked where it is greyed, and then one where it was clicked but was clicked off of. This works perfect on my pc but should be tested obviously.

jorgenjl2:
Has anyone else tested Rush the Rock with the vpn/tap versions listed? How is it working if so?

I dropped the idea of using jumbo frames so I would not say that helps enough to change much of anything (and attract mode seems to crash with it enabled more often). Remember that I am using four players which is also more demanding than just two players and I have two i7 4th gen PCs and one ryzen 1600 and one ryzen 3600 pc so newer PCs may be even better. It works most of the time though.
