    Home Country:
    While MyEmulators is a great plugin I found it hard to find any useful documentation on the correct configurations for each emulator. I propose that we collect working configurations in this topic. I will update this startpost with additional configurations that will hopefully be posted in this thread by the community.

    If you use a different emulator than the ones mentioned here, please... post those settings as well. It would be cool if this could become some definitive guide to emulator configurations! Perhaps a moderator could sticky this?

    Note: each configuration is set to show every file in the ROM directory. If you don't want this, change:
    Code (Text):
    1. Filter for showing files: *.*
    to something like:
    Code (Text):
    1. Filter for showing files: *.zip
    In this example only *.zip files will be shown in the ROM list.

    Kega fusion
    homepage

    Path to emulator: insert_path\Fusion.exe
    Path to directory with ROMs: insert_path
    name shown in Media Portal: 32X
    Filter for showing files: *.*

    Advanced
    Use quotes in paths: yes
    Execute without arguments: No

    additional requirements: none


    3DO

    FreeDO
    homepage

    Path to emulator: insert_path\freedo.bat
    Path to directory with ROMs: insert_path
    name shown in Media Portal: 3DO
    Filter for showing files: *.iso;*.img;*.bin

    Advanced
    Use quotes in paths: yes
    Execute without arguments: No

    additional requirements: yes

    So, create a batch file called freedo.bat with this code in it:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. set var=%1%
    3.  
    4. "insert_path_to_deamontools\daemon.exe" -unmount 0
    5. "insert_path_to_deamontools\daemon.exe" -mount 0, %1%
    6. "insert_path_to_emulator\FreeDO.exe"
    7.  
    Explanation:
    The first line allows the game that was chosen in MP to be used in this script.
    The second line unmounts any mounted images.
    The third line mounts the game image.
    The fourth line executes the emulator.

    For example:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. set var=%1%
    3.  
    4. "C:\Program Files\DAEMON Tools Lite\daemon.exe" -unmount 0
    5. "C:\Program Files\DAEMON Tools Lite\daemon.exe" -mount 0, %1%
    6. "D:\Emulators\Amiga\FreeDO.exe"
    7.  
    Put the batch file (freedo.bat) in the same directory as FreeDO.exe.

    WinUAE
    homepage

    Path to emulator: winuea_install_dir\winuae.bat
    Path to directory with ROMs: insert_path
    name shown in Media Portal: Amiga
    Filter for showing files: *.uae

    Advanced
    Use quotes in paths: yes
    Execute without arguments: No

    additional requirements: yes

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. insert_driveletter:
    3. CD insert_path\configurations
    4. %1
    5.  
    Explanation:
    The first line points the prompt to the drive where Winuae is installed.
    The second line points it to the folder where Winuae configurations are installed.
    The third line executes the specified configuration, (%1 will be substituted by whatever game you picked in Mediaportal).

    For example:
    Code (Text):
    1. D:
    2. CD Emulators\Amiga\configurations\
    3. %1
    Within every game configuration, go to misc. options and uncheck "Show GUI on startup".

    Explanation:
    - You need to make a configuration in WinUAE for every game you wish to play and save this in the "configurations" folder. These configurations will be visible in My Emulators.
    - If you want to use multidisk games just use the disk swapper option in WinUAE and put all disks in one DF0: drive.
    - If you don't want to use a keyboard for changing disks you can remap controller buttons in Winuae. Choose input options, select the controller, change from compatibility mode to something else i.e. configuration #1 and assign three buttons to
    "Next slot in disk swapper", "Previous slot in disk swapper" and "Insert disk in current disk swapper port in DF0:"

    Explanation:

    The second line points it to the folder where it is installed.
    The third line executes mame, points to the game (%1 will be substituted by whatever game you picked in Mediaportal) and any parameters you may have added will be used.

    1. mame -cc
    Then, edit mame.ini and enter the correct path to your roms. The option is toward the top of the file (line11).

    So as I understand it the problem with MAME is that it needs to change the working folder. Then I will add this as an option in the next version.

    Correct. This may be the case with other emulators as well. Though Mame is the only one I'm sure of.

    Thanks for this great plugin btw. I was jumping with joy when I saw Sonic1 on my television again. ;)

    for the Megadrive i think it should be listed as Mega Drive/Genesis because i've always known it as the sega genesis, and i had to look it up on wikipedia to see alternate names for it to see if it was actually on this list.

    You're right. It was already on my to do list, but I want to accompany it with a decent genesis logo (haven't had the time for that). Presentation is everything!

    (In reality it is one of my evil euro-trash ways to have you yankees broaden your horizon and take a look across the pond... ;) :p )

    A differnet PSX emulator......PSX Emulator! :) It requires no plugins as they are all included and has a very high compat rate with games. I have been using it for 6 months with onyl a few minor problems. Currently working on a way to autoload PSX cd's when they are detected in MP with this emulator.

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
