Hi !

Is there any way to make it able to drag a ROM file to the Project64 exe to start the ROM ?

Cause if you try now it just says "Attempt to open file failed".

It would be very nice if there where a fix or something for this, because its a problem if you want to launch Roms in Project64 through XBMC and skip the "gray menu" in PJ64 !

Thanks in Advance !

Hmm... one possible reason it could be saying that is because the ROM file is corrupted. I'm not sure if my way will be any different, but you could have P64 associate with all known ROM file types, (in the options menu), then you could try launching that specific rom by double clicking on it.

Change the settings for the shell integration feature.

Choose "Settings..." from the menu "Options".
Advanced settings must not have been hidden on configuration start. See if the checkbox for hiding these settings is marked ("Options" tab of this configuration dialoge).
There is a tab "Shell Integration". Extensions marked here will be analyzed when opening files in the manner you mentioned (e.g. drag-and-drop).

Refresh the list. F5 is the keyboard shortcut.
