Bizhawk / Command Line

In general, arguments are read sequentially into variables and then processed in an internal inscrutable order. Duplicate arguments (e.g. --load-slot=1 --load-slot=2) will result in only the last one taking effect (slot 2 will be loaded.) The desired ROM filename should be last.

Usually, all paths can be relative (where .\ is the directory of the .exe)

Loadstate:

--load-slot=[num]

Loads the specified quicksave slot number (0-9). Overrides the configuration "AutoLoad Last Save Slot"

--load-state=[path]

Loads the specified savestate file. Overrides the configuration "AutoLoad Last Save Slot"

Movie:

--movie=[path]

Loads specified movie

A/V Capture

--dump-type=[which]

Specifies the type of capture to be done

Valid parameters:

--dump-name=[path]

The name of the output file

--dump-length=[numframes]

The length of the capture, in frames. After this many frames have elapsed, A/V capture will automatically stop

--dump-close

If capturing and specifying a dump-length, setting this property will close the emulator after it has reached the length specified in dump-length

--dump-frames=[list_of_frames]

Controls which frames will be dumped. list_of_frames is formatted like: 100,200,300 When this is set, overrides the --dump-length to be equal to the last frame. You could set --dump-length afterwards to pick what you want. Ranges could be added without much trouble. Post a ticket.

Misc

--fullscreen

Will start the emulator in fullscreen mode

--chromeless

Starts the emulator with no window chrome (frame, titlebar, etc.) See DisplayConfig for more.

--gdi

Will force the emulator to startup with the GDI+ display method, useful in case you can't start it up at all
