Hey guys

 

A rookie question here, (Im hoping its a simple solution) but I hope the questions below will all mount to the same answer somewhere or somehow

 

When exiting a machine, and it asks me to save layout, as its been changed? what is that exactly, and should I do it?

 

When losing money on a machine, coming off it, and going back to it, the memory doesn't always save, why is this, and how can I ensure it does?

 

Am I right in saying its something to do with a layout being 'read only' or something like that?

 

I'd read somewhere, it was a case of unchecking it or something, could someone direct me how to, (a dummy guide for me)

 

Not all machines acknowledge money in/out, why is this? or is it just a layout issue?

 

And any other information regards saving the memory of a machine

 

Thanks In-Advance

 

Mike

Any game that is read only you just need to press Control and W to take this off.

When exiting a machine, and it asks me to save layout, as its been changed? what is that exactly, and should I do it? - This could be down to an older layout being converted to the newer format or a slight size adjustment, saving is recommended.

 

When losing money on a machine, coming off it, and going back to it, the memory doesn't always save, why is this, and how can I ensure it does? Some layouts will be stuck in "Read Only" This can be cleared by pressing CTRL & W when you have the machine loaded.

 

I'd read somewhere, it was a case of unchecking it or something, could someone direct me how to, (a dummy guide for me) Go to the layout folder, select all the files then right click > Properties and tick the read only box and click apply, then untick it and click apply again, it will look like this - https://i.gyazo.com/...03de1a6d7dd.png

 

Not all machines acknowledge money in/out, why is this? or is it just a layout issue? - This is down to the layout creator not implementing the meters correctly, older layouts may be down to emulator issues at the time, you can read about it here & may give you an idea how to fix it yourself - http://www.desertisl...ps-meter-setup/

 

And any other information regards saving the memory of a machine - Make sure to exit the emulator properly, don't close it via task manager, if you are going to copy/zip games make sure that they aren't open in the emulator as this causes the read only issue.

No need to remember it as it's gone in v5.2 ;)
