Two weeks ago or so there was an issue with one of my displays and when I got it set back up MAME started launching on my secondary monitor. In Windows that monitor is not the primary monitor but yet MAME keeps using it for some reason. I went into the MAME.ini file and changed the screen setting from auto to \\\\.\\DISPLAY0 through 2 and no matter what number I used it defaulted to the same monitor. I've used this setting in the past in the Vertical and Horizontal ini files to set different monitors depending on orientation. Anyone got any suggestions as to what could be the issue. I would think with it set to auto it would use whatever display was the primary also but this doesn't seem to be the case either.
You may have too many \
I believe the proper syntax for the screens is, for example: \\.\DISPLAY1
You can check your -verbose output to see what is being assigned locally when running a machine from command-line
