I see some layouts with "click" sounds but only using wheel module.
I want to add a "click.mp3" sound when I select a new game but with for example the "Basic" layout.
Tried this example:

Code: [Select]
function transition_callback(ttype, var, ttime)
    switch ( ttype )
        //case Transition.StartLayout:
case Transition.ToNewSelection:
                 local Wheelclick = fe.add_sound("Click.mp3")
    return false;

But doesnt work.

UPDATE: Solved found the solution on fry theme , thanks @jedione

Code: [Select]
function fade_transitions( ttype, var, ttime ) {
 switch ( ttype ) {
  case Transition.ToNewSelection:
  case Transition.ToNewList:
local Wheelclick = fe.add_sound("Click.mp3")
 return false;

fe.add_transition_callback( "fade_transitions" );

Scripting / [Plugin WIP] SumatraPDF reader (only for windows)
« on: October 16, 2017, 07:56:53 AM »
Just for testing , ONLY WORK ON WINDOWS BUILD.

Its really easy to use , just decompress in the main AM folder.
Download Sumatrapdf portable.

Put exe on "plugins\SumatraPDF\SumatraPDF.exe"

And pdf manuals like:

plugins\SumatraPDF\Game Manuals\Atari 2600\Basketball (USA).pdf

Changing "Atari 2600" for your emulator name.

*IMPORTANT* Decompress on the main AM instalation folder.

P.D. Maybe someone with more "squirrel skills" can improve the code and add the manual image found.
I´ve tried but failed  :(

Scripting / Show an image if an object doesnt exists
« on: October 14, 2017, 01:11:35 PM »
I`m working on a little "pdf reader" plugin.
The main idea is read our game manuals from the layout.
So I need some help to show a little png, icon or somthing when there isnt pdf manual on the respective folder.

This is how it looks.

What I want is as I said to show some info on the layout if the game hasn´t a pdf manual.

Scripting / Stop loop true animation when return form game.
« on: September 23, 2017, 10:31:52 AM »
Can I stop a loop animation when I return from game?

I made this:

Code: [Select]
    when = Transition.ToGame,
    property = "alpha",
    tween = Tween.Expo
    start = 0,
    end = 255,
    time = 800,
    loop = true

So I want to stop the loop , I´ve tried this but doesnt work:

Code: [Select]
    when = Transition.FromGame,
    property = "alpha",
    start =255,
    end = 0,
    loop = false


Working on this idea.
I´ll paste the code in next days , maybe one or two weeks  :)

Emulators / Problems with dfend and resfix
« on: May 29, 2017, 06:15:32 AM »
I´ve got a custom Dosbox pack with defend f.e. working.
Added to AM without issues and works great but the main problem is that when I enable the resfix plugin it fails.

In this case AM launches first Defend.exe and then Dosbox , so the plugin makes the resolution fix after launch Defend , then AM launchs Dosbox and when I press the exit button my theme is totally messy.

Any help?Thanks.

Scripting / Launch "pdf-reader" from layout.nut
« on: April 17, 2017, 06:57:10 AM »
Anyone can create a custom function to launch an external software , like a pdf reader by pressing "custom_1" key from AM¿?

I was thinking that could be awesome read game instruccions before launch a game.
But the thing is I won´t like to add this with a .batch command.
Just launch the pdf and close when you read weathever you want without exit AM or launch the game if you don´t want to.

I found this code inside the coveryour module:

Code: [Select]
class SimpleArtStrip extends Conveyor
m_x=0; m_y=0; m_width=0; m_height=0; m_x_span=0; m_y_span=0;

constructor( artwork_label, num_objs, x, y, width, height, pad=0 )
local my_list = [];
for ( local i=0; i<num_objs; i++ )
my_list.push( SimpleArtStripSlot(this,artwork_label) );
set_slots( my_list );

m_x=x+pad/2; m_y=y+pad/2;
if ( width < height )


Can I add new properties like pin_x or skew_x?
Can anyone make me a little example on how to do this?


Want to do something like this
