Rom Collection Browser - burningstone - 2011-07-27 08:18

Hi everybody,

I did some search on google and in a few forums, but i can't find a solution
for my problem. I dont't know if this is the right section to post this, if it's not feel free to move this thread.

I would like to start roms over XBMC and i want to start GlovePie with a script the same time, so that i can only start my wiimote, autoconnect it and play my games.I tried two different ways, which i'll explain to you.

Variant 1:
With the integrated Launcher and a selfmade batch file looking like this:
start C:\blablabla\project64.exe %rom%
start C:\blablabla\GlovePie.exe -Wiimotescript.PIE

So this works just fine, i can choose a game hit enter, start my wiimote, it connects automaticaly and after closing the applications im back in XBMC, but i dont see any thumbnails in XBMC for my roms. Just like in the description i put a file with the same name as the rom and the ending ".jpg" in my rom folder, add the rom folder to my launcher but nothing happens no thumbnails.

Variant 2:
With rom collection browser, amazing plugin, i can see description, thumbnails, fanarts, ..., but rom collection browser can't handle the batch file.

So is there a possibility either add thumbnails to the launcher or otherwise start GlovePie with rom collection browser. Starting GlovePIE with windows is not an option because i have 3 emuators integrated in XBMC and every emulator has his own script in GlovePIE, so it has to start GlovePIE with the needed script when i open a rom in rom collection browser.

Sorry for my bad english. Im a swiss guy Smile
Hope anyone can help me solving my problem or explain a different way to me how to get this to work. Thanks for responses.

I do not know exactly how works RCB, but if you want to pass an argument into a .bat file it must be %1 (for 1st argument), %2 (for 1st argument), etc... So your .bat file must be like this :

Code:
start C:\blablabla\project64.exe %1
start C:\blablabla\GlovePie.exe -Wiimotescript.PIE

Then into RCB settings you must have to start your. bat file with %rom% as argument. If it's not working, a third variant will be to use Advanced Launcher : http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=85724
