Multiple Monitors and config for RU

I have 3 monitors (two computer monitors and a tv). I have a Crossover Korean 2560x1440 monitor that is as barebones as one can get. The problem i am having is even though it shows as the primary monitor. It never opens up Mame. Mame either opens on my 2nd monitor or the TV.

I found CUsers\%user%\Local Settings\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Application Data\Temp\arcadeox\coinopF

But i can't seem to find the cfg files. Can someone point me to the correct path to edit mame.ini

Re: Multiple Monitors and config for RU

The way I have experienced it was when ever a program or app ( whatever I may be using ) pops up its in a certain spot , You have 3 monitors so for instance if DS3 Tool was running and it poped up to the bottom left hand part of the screen that program would show up on that 1st monitor all the way to the left. Position Equality from one monitor to however many you may have.

Re: Multiple Monitors and config for RU

I don't understand what you mean. Yes. Windows will remember locations of windows on the OS side, but this korean monitor doesn't follow specs from the defacto standards. It never shows as the main monitor even though it is shown as the main monitor. I have to go into mame and change the display to display 2 for it to open on my main monitor. On RU it will always open on monitor 2 or 3 and never monitor 1 (main). I need to find the config file for it.

I did not find it in local data.

Re: Multiple Monitors and config for RU

I don't know. I don't have multi monitors right now. Test it out and ask a mod to check.

I'm pretty sure it will, I've had problems with this before in the past as well.

Re: Multiple Monitors and config for RU

I believe what Kong has outlined above wont cause the window to pause (and hence not register one). TIF did a test submission and no pauses were registered.
I think its similar to using alt+tab to change windows.

Ill set up another monitor later today and test it too.
