Hey, I am using a projection screen as second monitor. But Retrobat starts Emulationstation always on my primary monitor. How do I make it display on my second screen? Thanks!

Hello
Using BatGui.exe at the root of your installation, you can choose "monitor index"

Thank you, I changed it to "monitor index 1" (it was on 0). The intro plays on my main screen and then emulationstation opens up on my second monitor. However, as soon as I launch a game it opens on my main screen again. Sad

Because you maybe use standalone emulators. Try to move them "manually" on the second monitor, and the position should remain on the next reopening.

Hmm don't think that is it as it does this with every system (nes, gb, master system, vectrex, megadrive etc.) .... strange if this is "unique case" as I didn't really customize anything, this is just vanilla Retrobat. Just my luck that I am special snowflake. Sad

No, if it's Retroarch, it should remain on the place define on batgui.
Have you save your settings in batgui (bottom)
