Using batch files to execute a program and perform tasks

September 12, 2013 at 22:00:46
Specs: Windows 7, 3.4 GHz / 8 gigs
I use a gamecube emulator, and I thought it would be cool if I had shortcut for each Gamecube game in my games folder, instead of launching the emulator and picking the game I want manually.
The games are isos, so 'start game' in a batch won't work. The idea I have, is to have a batch launch the emulator, and then choose the game to play, and I could write one for each game. However, I'm not even sure you can have a batch perform certain tasks within a program, so I wouldn't know how.
If there is a way, please explain, or if you have any other ideas, that would be nice too.
BTW, going through the menu by right click the isos and choosing open with emulator doesn't work, if that's relevant information.

That isn't even remotely what I wanted. If I were to ask what color the sky was, and you responded with "I'd like to own a big house," you be about as close to answering my question, as you just were with answering my problem on this forum.

Sorry, couldn't do any better than that, probably why no one else answered.

Hoped you would get the drift if I wasn't right & use google yourself trying different keywords in the search.

Consult your emulator's documentation. If it doesn't allow you to open a game from the command line, you're largely SOL. Unless you want to pick up a better language, that is.
