How to change what emulator is running an extra?

Tue Jul 29, 2014 10:56 pm

Just playing with the new GB12 and saw there was an easyflash cart version of a game, my default emulator is HOXS64 and previously it didn't support carts but it does now but even though Hoxs in the number one emu it runs Winvice instead when you select the easyflash cart from the extra's dropdown..

How can I change this please.

I tried adding crt to its list of things it an run in the script but no change..

I just got it to work quickly. Tested fine with Price of Persia anyway.

1)Added CRT to HOXS in the Emulators.ini file

Code: Select all

SupportedTypes=G64;FDI;D64;TAP;P00;PRG;T64;CRT
2)Added CRT to the HOXS script file near top in the \scripts folder

Code: Select all

If GameType CONTAINS(g64||d64||tap||t64||p00||prg||crt)
3)Set HOXS as default emulator

4)Launched an Easyflash cart extra.

Btw, after trying half a dozen or so Easyflash files, HOXS does not seem to work with Airborne Ranger, although it started fine in VICE.

Edit: Just a little more testing. Airborne Ranger starts fine manually in HOXS. Maybe more scripting help is needed?

There are a few carts that do not work properly, I have passed on the info to David hopefully to fix them but it took loads of little prompts here and there to get David to even think about adding carts so it may take time :)

I just like Hoxs best, its compatibility and running (bar the few carts) is excellent, followed it since day one..
