General / Re: AM hangs on exit from MAME
« Last post by Bgoulette on Yesterday at 02:24:16 PM »
Thanks again, progets, but nothing there made a difference in my setup. So I just downloaded AM again and set up a new folder. And now things seem to be working. I must have screwed something up, but I have no idea what! At least it's working again! I appreciate your time.

General / Re: AM hangs on exit from MAME
« Last post by progets on Yesterday at 11:36:13 AM »
Removing the exit_hotkey shouldn't cause any issues. After all, there isn't one there by default.

Remove the exit_key through the GUI, close AM, open AM and test again.
Code: [Select]
Configure-->Emulators-->MAME-->Exit Hotkey=<leave blank>

Using the exit_hotkey=esc with MAME has cause issues for others since that is the default MAME exit key. You can read about it here http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=2582.msg17613#msg17613

figured it out...

added this to carrier.nut around line 152 to turn off smoothing of wheel images... if you're into that sort of thing.

Code: [Select]
153    obj.smooth=false

got it. turned off smoothing in the wheel images.

added this to carrier.nut around line 152.

obj.smooth=false

would be nice to set this flag in the function call from layout.nut

Scripting / Re: Question about carrier.nut image sizing.
« Last post by keithcorcoran on Yesterday at 08:53:58 AM »
I'd like to get as close to pixel perfect as possible and on the Pi given all the down conversion needed to output to a CRT I dont think it will happen but i'd like to get close.

If nothing else, it will be closer to authentic than throwing a LCD in my cabinet.

I'm kind of straddling posts now in 2 forums but this is probably a better question for this forum.

....

I added imagename.smooth to my vidoe background.. works perfect.

tried adding carrier.smooth = false but that didnt turn off smoothing for the carrier images.

tried adding selector.smooth in carrier.nut since i read the code to mean 'selector' is the actual image in the carrier but that didn't work either.

scratch that. .just saw the comment line.  selector is the frame png around the wheel image

any thoughts?

picturename.smooth=false worked out perfect applied to my background video

however..
carrier.smooth = false

did not work.

nor did adding
selector.smooth = false

to carrier.nut

General / Re: Screensaver showing black screen
« Last post by AdmiralSnackbar on Yesterday at 08:06:32 AM »
FOUND THE ISSUE! Sorry for the multiple posts but I think this deserved to be a new posting.
Everything was set up correctly except for the Blank Screen Timeout. I had the following thinking that it would just keep it from turning on for a while. But I'm pretty sure that overwrote a bit somewhere and kept the screen saver from ever starting. Once I changed that value to a more reasonable number, then the videos started working again. Thanks again for all your help I really appreciate it, I am very new at this.

General / Re: Screensaver showing black screen
« Last post by AdmiralSnackbar on Yesterday at 07:25:04 AM »
Setup the key press for starting the screensaver. It had the same behaviour by going to a black screen. I made sure to try it not only on the Super Nintendo Display but all of them. I did go through the screensaver.nut code and found something interesting. I see the line of fe.add_artwork( "", 0, 0, layout.width, layout.height) It's not given any folder like its counter parts for overlay. I'm trying to figure out where the screensaver itself is getting the folder name. Because the cfg file for the emulators seemed to be correct.

/opt/retropie/configs/all/attractmode/screensaver/screensaver.nut (snippet)
Code: [Select]
class MovieMode
{
MIN_TIME = 4000; // the minimum amount of time this mode should run for (in milliseconds)
obj=0;
logo=0;
start_time=0;
is_exclusive=false;

constructor()
{
obj = fe.add_artwork( "", 0, 0, fe.layout.width, fe.layout.height );
if ( config["sound"] == "No" )
obj.video_flags = Vid.NoAudio | Vid.NoAutoStart | Vid.NoLoop;
else
obj.video_flags = Vid.NoAutoStart | Vid.NoLoop;

if ( config["preserve_ar"] == "Yes" )
obj.preserve_aspect_ratio = true;

logo = ArtOverlay( 10, fe.layout.height - 250, 520, 240, 2 );
}
