Title: Attract Mode Platform Categories (arcades, consoles, etc) finally figured out!
Post by: Iameddysmith on July 15, 2017, 10:06:01 PM
The long behold question of Attract Mode Platform Categories has been solved! I have been racking my brain for months and after trolling the source line by line I finally found a lead and was a success. Only thing, which I don't believe will be a hard task for some of you very experienced themes is some sort of transition call back to previous menu. This is a huge leap in the right direction. Enjoy friends!

UPDATE***** Plug in created! Fully functional for all PC, PI, etc!

Amazing! Thank you very much for sharing this! I was able to figure it out within a few minutes after I followed the steps you provided, and now have functional platform categories  :D My only complaint is that when you go back to the previous menu, it always takes you back to the platform categories menu (not the previous menu with "consoles" "handhelds" etc.) Is there any way to fix this issue?

That's the only issue I've been trying to resolve. I'm not a pro at coding layouts, but I was hoping that posting this here that an experienced layout creator may have a fix that may be added to layout.nut. I've been looking through documentation and have a hunch on how could be done, but not sure how to code it. I'm thinking that if a layout stored the previous display in fe.nv table as a variable, and on user trigger back button could call back that stored variable display. There is not much documentation on writing to fe.nv for me to try. It's a big step in the right direction, but not perfect yet. There are a lot of experienced people here that this may be a simple fix, but can get more of an overview.

Okay. Then hopefully it'll get figured out someday soon because this is a rather inconvenient bug with the option to use platform categories, and for now I've turned off the platform categories until it becomes resolved  ::)

I added the fix. It takes a little time, but it works. Added to the link "Platform Back Fix".

I added the fix. It takes a little time, but it works. Added to the link "Platform Back Fix".

Thank you! I'll give it a try. But just wondering, where do I put those .nut files (arcades.nut, collections.nut, etc.)? In the same folder as the the layout for the main menu or the layout used by each system?

Post by: Iameddysmith on July 28, 2017, 11:06:42 AM
In each layout folder, ex: Atari 2600 put the console.nut in layout folder. Then editing the layout.nut. if you open up consoles.nut it'll show what to add. This is a temp fix until I get plug in up and working.

No luck at all getting that to work  :o Guess I'll just wait until a easier solution becomes available

Pi plugin is added to link above. Move platform folder into your plugins folder and enable in attract mode. Good to go. Pc version will be added tonight

Genius! Within 10 minutes I was able to figure out how to set it up, although the whole "\\ not \" part had me a little confused for a while  ::) Anyways, thank you very much! A little later I'll post a video of my attractmode setup with platform categories

Awesome! Look forward to it! I think this is a game changer for attract mode! If you have any recommendations please let me know. I'm thinking about adding a "hacks" category too.
Title: Re: Attract Mode Platform Categories (arcades, consoles, etc) finally figured out!
Post by: bundangdon on August 03, 2017, 07:16:35 PM
Yep! Since there are so many different consoles, spanning from generation to generation, I decided to break them up into two categories: "Classics" (pre-1990) and "Consoles" (1990-present). Of course you could do this with computers too, but the majority of the (emulated) computers were released before 1990  ;D

Then add plug in. If using pi, just drop plug in in plugins folder. If PC, same just set path in plug in.nut (https://youtu.be/M2F3lEQxVRw[/url)

As promised, here is my own personal attractmode build, using a customized version of the ol'room theme, along with some other custom stuff :) It's not a complete build and the video is a little bit low in quality, but it gives you a good, general idea of how attractmode utilizes platform categories. Thank you again to everyone who made this possible!

Thank you! The commercials give the layout a nice personal and nostalgic touch ;D

I would prefer to bundle my displays into a list of Manufacturers, for example:

Atari
Bandai
Commodore
Microsoft
NEC
Nintendo
Sega
SNK
Sony

These are how I have them using the old method (the .nut file in the layout folder) is there anyway to add this option into the plugin? Would be cool to choose between Manufacturers or Categories but I think this would involve editing the attract.cfg each time.
Title: Re: Attract Mode Platform Categories (arcades, consoles, etc) finally figured out!
Post by: Iameddysmith on August 26, 2017, 10:55:52 AM
Good idea. Ill revamp the plug in with options to choose how you want to categorize. I'm assuming you don't use collections, hacks, so no need to add those categories? If you do, then how does that fit in your categorization?
Title: Re: Attract Mode Platform Categories (arcades, consoles, etc) finally figured out!
Post by: BadFurDay on August 26, 2017, 12:20:23 PM
I still use the arcades and collections category so if they can stay included will work for me.

They stay as they are really.
Title: Re: Attract Mode Platform Categories (arcades, consoles, etc) finally figured out!
Post by: flashpc on August 31, 2017, 03:36:05 PM
i love the plugin but is there anyway to stay in a collection after pressing back.

for example

go into handhelds
then go into gamegear
then press back
and stay in handhelds instead of the main screen (highlighting favourites)
Title: Re: Attract Mode Platform Categories (arcades, consoles, etc) finally figured out!
Post by: Iameddysmith on September 03, 2017, 01:48:24 PM
That's what the plug in does. Make sure it's enabled

Hello everybody and thank you for your plugin.
Badly, i can't make it work in any way....even following step by step the youtube guide.
Is it possible that I have conflict with the Nevato Layout?

My config at moment is PC-Win7, using last version of attract mode with 2 emus inside (atm) Gameboy and Mame.
Still when i open the attract i see only an empty cabinet and only if i repetedly scroll with arrows i manage to arrive in mame section or gameboy section.

Any clues?

My attract.cfg is the following:

It's how your displays are named on your attract.cfg not matching [platform].txt romlists. Go in your romlists folder, open up Handhelds.txt those systems/displays need to match the way the display name in your attract.cfg. for example, your attract.cfg has display 'GB" for game boy. In handhelds.txt romlist change Nintendo Game Boy to GB in both spots. I set it up the prebuilt romlists on standard naming and added as many systems for easy setup. Hope this helps

I thought the same, but Mame is always mame.....unless is case sensitive....
I tried to change Nintendo Game Boy in GB in both spots, saved and restarted....still no luck
Title: Re: Attract Mode Platform Categories (arcades, consoles, etc) finally figured out!
Post by: Iameddysmith on September 08, 2017, 08:42:15 AM
Make sure plug in is enabled. And is case sensitive for displays.

Other things to check:
 path in plug in is correct. "Platforms.nut"

Also put attract mode in windowed mode and look at prompt. Can you snapshot thatand  Your platforms.nut path in plug in. I can look at it. If not, I will have you send me your attract.cfg and get it right for you.

Post by: Crusader on September 08, 2017, 08:53:24 AM
plugin is enabled with nesting enable too.

i changed the namefiles with respective capital letters in order to be the same.
Still nothing.

Maybe u mean plugin.nut in platform folder? coz i have this....i don't have any platforms.nut anywhere O_o

in the following i will post my files starting with attract.cfg

local romlists_dir = "C:\\Attract\\romlists\\"; // <--------- Place your 'romlists' path here.
local root_category = "";

Now in your romlists folder, do you have a Handhelds.txt ?

I also tried the other slash side, works the same, in fact the plugin loads the lists.

Alright try this, I need to add error check if system/display does not exist. The error and why it's not working is if you have systems/displays in the category romlists that you don't have displays for in attract.cfg it doesn't know what to do. Try adding only systems you have in category romlists if you have only 2 systems it's crashing on the other displays that don't exist. You should only have mame in your arcades room list and gb in handhelds and nothing in other lists. Unsure what it does on blank, maybe add one system in each romlist that you have in attract.cfg.

I tried it....still nothing, i have just more errors, coz the parser cannot find the other roms such as PCGame, Collections, etc.
what i did is both remove the systems inside the list in Handhelds and arcades, leaving only Nintendo Game Boy & mame, and I also tried to remove the other romlists, such as Collection, PCGAmes, etc. Not working, same result.
Seems to me that the system cannot find the images related hence i think is a layout problem, and not a plugin problem, which is why i asked you if u tried that layout...Coz maybe we are just trying to sort something that is not 'sortable' from this point of view...

@badfurday, added your categories, but before uploading can anyone think of any other requested category options?

Any idea when you'll release this update?

Mickelson has added support for nesting in the source. I haven't tried it myself

Hey sorry about delay, been busy with other projects but this has manufacturer option. Check settings in plug in. Make sure you have each romlist and displays setup. Working on error proofing if romlist doesn't exist or is blank, but let me know if any issues:

I can't download the PI plugin .nut, says it is an undecrypted file.
