Emulators / Re: AttractMode not launching Chaos Heat
« on: February 09, 2018, 02:00:40 PM »
That was exactly it, changing the entry to chaoshea instead of chaosheat or chaosheatj - This solved this problem.

The entry now looks like this:

chaoshea;Chaos Heat (V2.09O 1998/10/02 17:00);mame;;1998;Taito;Platform / Scrolling Shooter;2;0;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);imperfect;1;raster;coh3002t;;chd;

Thanks for the help and quick reply.


Emulators / AttractMode not launching Chaos Heat
« on: February 05, 2018, 01:17:30 AM »

I'm having a peculiar problem with Chaos Heat. I have all other Taito G-Net titles working within AttractMode.

However for Chaos Heat both the English (chaosheat) and Japanese (chaosheatj) fail to launch through AttractMode, but when MAME is run stand alone it has no problem running these two CHD files.

My romlist entry looks like this, and the coh3002t file is present for the G-Net Bios:

chaosheat;Chaos Heat (V2.09O 1998/10/02 17:00);mame;;1998;Taito;Platform / Scrolling Shooter;2;0;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);imperfect;1;raster;coh3002t;;chd;

I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, or if someone with the launch working in AttractMode could share the romlist entry so I could compare and see what may be wrong with my code.

It should be adaptable to most emulators without issue, I was able to set it up with Super Nintendo as well. AttractMode is quite flexible.

Themes / [Theme] Vapourwave1080 1.0

I created this theme for my own personal use, using the AMBuilder tool, and some manual tweaking of the .nut file afterward.

It is a 1920X1080 horizontal resolution theme. I can't seem to get the automatic scaling to work properly with the tool; so I mostly customized and tweaked it for my needs around my resolution after the initial creation. I used simple alpha channel layering and stylized text placement to make the theme.
  • For 1920x1080 horizontal resolution setups
  • Snap/Video Snap Preview Panel with list number count
  • Wheel Art Panel
  • Manufacturer, Year, Player Count, and Genre Support (If catver.ini is properly loaded)
  • Stylized Fonts Included (Emulogic,SFAlienEncounters,Streamster) - These are suitable for personal use only.
  • Video Playback is set to silent
  • 80's theme using era specific vibrant colouring

There is a known bug when switching back from MAME to the AttractMode frontend, where the video has sound on return, until another list item is selected. I could reproduce this reliably and could not find a solution to this, although I know other themes have had this issue as well.

It isn't perfect, but I haven't seen a theme similar to anything like this; and may only be useful to some that have horizontal 1080P setups. I have only tested this with the Attract 2.3.0 release; so it may not work on earlier releases reliably.

Thanks goes to the AMBuilder tool, which helped layout the initial code so I could tweak it. It seems that there are some design translation issues on the tool with the latest version of Chrome; but I'll add that feedback in again once I take a third crack at it on an alternate browser.
