Interesting - I never ran into this problem ... first I though it is because I am using a newer version of O2em, but apparently the problem is there as well: if you run o2em.exe by double-clicking it in the explorer, the debug window doesn't open beyond an empty screen ... weird ...

anyways - until I fix this in O2EM (along with the other stuff I am working on), here is an easy workaround that will make it usable again:

create an empty textfile called "o2em.bat" in the directory of o2em
write as only instruction "o2em.exe" into the bat-file
launch o2em using the bat-file (double click) instead of o2em.exe ... then you should be good to go ;-)

(alternatively just run o2em from the command line like I do ... then you wont have the problem ...)

WOW, Many thanks! :D :D :D :D :D :D
I´ts just amazing to see it again!

Chris!

I would like a screen capture feature. Too many times I find myself pressing the prt scr key and then cropping the image in Paint. That would be cool.

If people would just read the f*** manual ;-)

It's F8 and it's always been in there - it used to take a minute to save the screenshot but I fixed that a while ago and now it saves instantly - you can specify the directory on O2EM start (details in the manual)

I pressed F8 and O2EM went crazy and wouldn't shut off and gave me a black dump00.bmp file.

what version are you using? my 1.20 one should actually present you with a directory and filename once you press F8 ... are you using a frontend ? or just double click on the o2em.exe ?

Chris!

I am using 1.20b5, Should I be using a front end?

I love O2EM.  Quick question - there's one thing I like to do with other emulators but I don't think you can do it with O2EM.  Simply, I assign more than one possible key for a game event (usually two).  The reason I do this is so I can freely switch between Keyboard (where, say, I use Left Shift for fire) and a remote joystick I have (which uses the number "2" for fire, though some people might use button 1 in joystick mode).  It's also sometimes helpful if certain keyboard keys work better with certain games.  Is there a way to do this in O2EM?  I can do it with Stella and MAME...  Thanks again for the great work on this smooth, fast emulator...

Hi there, seems somebody released a patch for the broken sound in O2EM.

See here : https://sourceforge.net/p/o2em/bugs/16/

Would it be possible to integrate it to manopac release ?

As I already said, a GitHub repo would make everything a lot easier. A single pull request and that's it.

No it doesn't - I changed it because CAPS LOCK should perform what it does on the C7420 - allow you to type Uppercase Letters ;-)

From O2EM.TXT:

    SCROLL LOCK = Enables/Disables the O2 keyboard input of the keys used by joystick emulation

My new laptop computer doesn't seem to have a scroll lock key anymore.....

How about using the on screen keyboard.

You don't have to be mad, but it helps.

I just set up a new Win 10 computer and both o2em 1.18.1 and the 1.20 beta are slow. I haven't had problems with other emulators and I am running modern games in steam just fine. Oddly, on my prior, slower computer 1.18.1 ran fine.

Where can I find links to the 1.18.0 and 1.17 versions of the emulator?

Thanks...
