Can't reproduce. What did you try to launch in the first place?

let say : "mess64 pce -cdrm pcecd:hyprcat2:cdrom"

(it's the interresting part of the command launched by qmc2, but i tried this on command line and got the exact same result : black screen > reset > OK)

EDIT : Tried with last SVN, a fresh mess.ini and no pce.ini but same result.

Add the CD system cart to the end of that command line.

Ok, it works that way. There seems to be some kind of automount of the CD System on reset, it should be the same on first launch if nothing is specified.

I'm going to warn qmc2 to fix this

I reported an issue related to the PCE driver back in June ( http://mametesters.org/view.php?id=5215 ) and the automount glitch was discovered then.

Micko is aware of the problem.

I just figured out if you launch a game from QMC2 software list tab, at the black screen you can press TAB to access the internal UI then choose Slot Devices/Reset option.

You will see the CD-ROM Systems menu then you can press Run and your game loads.

any chance, some of the developers could look into this bug? :

some time ago sound effects worked correctly on MESS, now only CD-DA is playing...

I have broken it, and I have gone through the code several times, but I still haven't found where the culprit is. it might be something as stupid as a copy and paste mistake, or a typo, but I still haven't found it.

also, typically developers go periodically through bugs even without requests wink
