Groovy Mame boot up to specific game at startup
« on: January 20, 2022, 09:52:34 pm »
Not sure if this question is more front end or Mame related, but I'm wondering if there is any way to get Groovy Mame to boot up directly to a particular Rom? I'm using big box for my front end and have it to boot at startup but would be nice to just get the machine to boot into a specific game in my case MK3.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you, I'll google it and give either option a try. Just wasn't sure if using a bat file would interfere with Big Box launching on startup. Guess I should have been more clear with my question.

Sounds like a front end question to me, I'd ask on the LaunchBox forums.

instead of havinf your launchbox start at startup, you create a batch file that when you close mame, it fires up launch box, its easyer to do with ahk.
