Do I need a special lay file to show BOTH Marquee and Bezels for dual monitors?
#341951 - 06/27/15 08:15 PM


Trying to show both Marquee and Bezel for my games on DUAL monitors. I can have one or the other by placing the YYYY.zip in the artwork folder, but not both. Feels like it has something to do with the lay file.

Is there a special lay file for using bot Marquee and Bezel? Any help here is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Bill

Did you read the second sticky in this section?

Yes I read the sticky and I found it useful for creating a Marquee lay file. However, I dont see where it explains how to roll bot Bezel and Marquee data into a single lay file. Maybe I am missing something.

Again I am looking for a way to show BOTH the bezel and a Marquee and I am assuming it needs a more complex lay file than what is shown in the sticky.

I'm assuming you're using an artwork file from Mr. Do's site... tell me which game you're wanting to do this with and I can send you a .lay file that will do this.

uh...which post was that - for others (like me) having this SAME issue?
@Nightvoice:
If you could help me with this - an example .lay file for Qbert running game and bezel on main monitor and marquee only on monitor 2
Thanks!

Thank you!

The post is sticky (second from the top) called "Displaying artwork on a separate monitor".
