ES game-start script question Empty ES game-start script question

Hi,

if i start a script at game-start, is it possible to read the rom-name or rom-filename into a var in my script?
Im looking for a possibility to use a second display as marquee on my arcade.
Otherwise a will have to add an additional command or script in every <command> tag in the es_systems.cfg to get the %rom% var.

regards.

Hello

In your script :

%1 variable is to get the full path to the rom file

%2 variable is to get the name without extension of the rom

Maybe i found a small problem with the two variables. Roms with spaces in the filename are cutted at the first space.

It seems that you're right...

It's been a while I haven't tested scripts features in ES. I was sure that we could get full path with these variables, maybe in previous versions of ES but it's not the same branch than the current one. With %4 I get the fullname of the rom but without the extension.

This need further investigation...
