HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FULLSCREEN SWITCHING NOT WORKING AT ALL!

Post by jmon » Fri Oct 16, 2020 12:23 pm

I'm using NegaMame variant (almost identical code base to official .224) /Negatron frontend setup, but I can't get my assigned-F hotkey to register its input by emulator, (I tried F key in OS-generic context), and I previously had default fullscreen working weeks ago. I hope to test if the fullscreen takes away performance instability (crashes). Thanks!

By default, going from window mode to full screen is just a matter of typing Left Alt+Enter on your keyboard.
I don't understand why you want to use a F hotkey. But if it doesn't work, it means you didn't re-assign the "toggle fullscreen" key to the F hotkey you want.

After walloowing in self-pity for two days I tried pressing (left one) ALT + Enter...earlier this week I tried selectfully turning off Win10's "Fullscreen Optimization" temporarily for NegaMame app, so its not Microsoft...oh and BTW the only update I have installed since the 15th of September has been TODAY's Security Intelligence Update for Microsoft Defender Antivirus KB2267602 (Version 1.325.1007.0) -I don't even use that brand of antivirus; that would not affect it (yes, I hold off now about three weeks after Update Tuesday, because arrogant Microsoft was sneaking beta-quality cumulative updates onto my computer :evil: ).

You can update whatever in Windows, it shouldn't affect this particular function.

Which F hotkey did you assign to "toggle fullscreen" in MAME? I'll try to do the same in my own install. I need to reproduce the bug before I can help you.

The plain "F" key on keyboard, nothing more nor nothing less...I even tried going back to ALT+ENTER default, but still this...

I really don't know what's happening on your machine. I can assign the regular F key to "toggle fullscreen". It's working nicely with NegaMAME 0.225-1 on Windows 10.

Try to backup your cfg folder within your NegaMAME folder and try again. If it works, it will mean that your cfg folder was corrupt in some ways.

Deleted to "Recycle" bin all the 'cfg' files like you said, and I left toggle full-screen default-set key...nothing happened. :(

Well, I don't have the problem here. So, I can't help you much...
Last trick, try to install NegaMAME from scratch i.e. get the original zip file and unzip it into a new folder, then see if it still doesn't work. If it's still not working, try with genuine MAME. If you still have the issue with genuine MAME, contact the MAME dev team, they may have some ideas about how to fix this.
