- Manual loading. Instructions for each game at Notes tab. Don't panic... No more than a couple of keys or a "load" typing.
- Mess controls configured for two xbox gamepads and the following keys:
Player 1: arrow keys and right Control/numpad 0.
Player 2: V,F,C,B and SPACE/Left Shift.
- Change gamebase paths as always. Mine is D:\GameBase\Micronique Hector...

Greetings to .mad, OX, Dax, Seiya, sjakie43 and all the gamebase creators.

Enjoy!

Thanks Manguan, Nice Gamebase. Do all the games run using option 2 (Hector 1) or do some need to run from basic / other modes?

Hi OX.

I have used Hector2+ machine for Interact, Hector1 and Hector(2/plus/Basic) and Hector HRX for HRX, HRX-Basic and HRX-Forth games.

Not all games need the same option to load. For example, for some Hector Basic games you have to press 3, type load and once loading is finished, run. Loading info for each game is at notes tab.

It's why I decided to leave loading as manual. Besides, keyboard must be set to natural mode (-nat) for gamebase sendkeys. And once the game has loaded change manually the keyboard back to emulated mode for some games to work correctly. That's all.

By the way, any project in sight? 8)

Interesting machine and gamebase. :wink:
don't have anytime to test this at the moment, but there are two other emulators.
dchector and vbhector.
i guess dchector will work exactly the same as Exelvision and Thomson (same author).
so script will need batches to edit config to attach the files.
it might speed up the automation and MAME -nat nonsense (that really bugs me).
but hey!, i don't mind pressing a few keys to load. :D
