Scripting / Sound on Button Push
« on: February 15, 2018, 08:55:21 AM »
How do I code in sound on a certain button push?

I "hacked" this code from another layout to make a sound when moving from ROM to ROM,  but I'd like to assign a sound to CUSTOM 1.

General / Grid Layout?

Is the "GRID" and "FILTERED GRID" layouts that I have somehow incorporated as part of attract mode?  I ask because there is no layout for GRID or FILTERED GRID... or for VERTICOOLS for that matter (but it too appears in the menu of layouts to choose from).

Where can I find the code for the GRID layout?

Scripting / Is This Doable?

Let me preface by saying I am merely a hack and not even a good one... when it comes to programming.  Knowing that...

I am looking to be able to display a snap for a specific length of time... lets say 3 seconds... then either replace that snap with the movie file for that game OR simply start playing the movie over the top of the snap (hiding the snap) until either a game is selected or a control movement is made at which time the movie would stop playing and either the snap would be replaced OR (in the case of the movie playing over the snap) the movie would simply stop & disappear there by leaving the snap on screen...

The overall effect would be simply the snap showing for 3 seconds ... then the movie start playing.

Yes,  I can get the snap to appear.  Yes,  I can get the movie file to appear.   No,  I can't figure out how to get the snap ONLY to appear for a set time frame then have the movie to appear.

I am trying to mimic behavior that I used in an old MAMEWAH theme I made years ago and apply it to a modified version of the SDARCADE VERTICAL theme.

Any/all help is much appreciated!

EDIT: Oh,  by the way... the more I think about it,  the more I am convinced that the better way to do this (if it's possible) would be to overlay the video after running a timer on it... then removing it when a movement/button is sensed.  The way the layout works is that multiple snaps are on screen... and I can already replace all 3 snaps on screen (albeit immediately) with movies... but that's not what I need... I need just the MIDDLE "selected" snap to switch to the movie 3 seconds in...
