    Gens for Linux command line help?

    Hello

    I'm trying to use Gens for Linux from the command line in Full Screen. I don't want the gui. I've got it installed and running. I'm also using the opengl version.

    Well anyways I've now got Gens to open a game from the command line. But it goes back to a window and the gens gui opens. I'm using the --fs option which from what I've read should enable Full screen without a gui. And it does go back to full screen if I use my mouse to minimize the gui screen.

    So does anyone know a way to do this??? Please Help

    Thanks

    I also would like to do this, so that I could use it connected to mythtv

    As far as I know, you cannot run gens from the command line without patching it. I've been using xe to play genesis games in mythtv, which sucks because xe is a great emulator, but doesnt support save states

    This is the Gens emulator for Genesis/Mega Drive.

    This version might be useful to you; I haven't tested it myself though.

    Yes that is the version I'm using with the patch that should fix the command line stuff without a gui. But I can't get it to work without the gui coming up.

    Thanks though

    I give up fighting with gens and found that dgen worked much easier. For what I was using it for. But Thanks any ways.
