I installed a second hard drive via the attached drive bay (that goes underneath), paired a controller, and set the default save location to D:.
At that point I tried to use "Add new games" menu entry and it would say "Loading ..." and the menu screen would get darker but nothing would happen. I rebooted and tried this a few times with the same result. I'm not sure what happened, I might have switched from 1080p to 720p, or removed a controller, but suddenly it worked! Via add new games, I could navigate via the controller and download some "arcade" games. I downloaded maybe 3 games. Twice I was even able to run the games and they worked well.
Today after rebooting the system, nothing will run. Menu items like "Search for new games" say "Loading..." and the menu screen would get darker but nothing would happen. Same thing happens when I try to launch any of the "arcade" games that I downloaded (that worked before). It says "Loading..." and the menu screen would get darker but nothing would happen.
Is there an error log anywhere that says what is happening when I try to launch a game/emulator?
I did follow the forum FAQ to do the following:
- Open MAME Application by going to C:\mame\mame.exe (application)
Go to the bottom and click on "Configure Options"
Click on "Video Options"
Then go to the bottom and turn on "Wait Vertical Sync"
Any help is appreciated. The only thing I can think to try tomorrow is to try something other than 720p 60hz.
