You say this was fixed days ago, yet you provide no info on how to apply the fix. You "assume" we all know how to compile. How in layman's terms do we fix it? Do we open a file in notebook++ and just change a line of code, or a website link? If so which file? Do we need some sort of compiling software? If so which? How would you use it to fix this? You saying this has already been fixed "link" is kinda pretentious. Using Win 10 btw on this rig for reasons. Ubuntu on everything else.

Themes / Re: New Theme - Unified
« Last post by dmmarti on July 15, 2018, 09:41:23 AM »
This is a very old theme ..... however, in the layout.nut file ... find this section and delete everything that comes after it.

///////////////////////////////////////

// Themed Overlay Display Menu
// Add this block of code to the very end of any layout.nut file to have
// a centered theme-able menu


Remove all of the lines that are below that section.  This theme was written well before the displays menu could be assigned a layout/theme. By removing those lines in the layout.nut file, that should let Attract Mode work normally.

saying i "fundamentally miss understood" is possible an understatement.  I had somehow completely missed the "next filter" and "previous filter" options.. Seeing that might have pointed me in the right direction..   Its funny how missing something so basic sets you on a path, and you are so intent to find your way ON that path.. you never think to look at another path..

Saying thanks again.. And sorry for seems now a very silly question.

This worked great..  Thank you.. !!

 But makes me think i have fundamentally miss understood how filters work.  Only global filters work all the time.. the others are turned on and off somehow..
Going to go play with it.. But any pointer won't go amiss.. ..  :)

I think you're overlooking the part where you need to apply the filter. Each filter listed is toggled by pressing a key (once you have set it up in Configure-->Controls-->Next Filter).

If you really want to filter the entire display (which can't be toggled by pressing a key) you need to apply your rules to "Global Filter" section. Here's an example.
Code: [Select]
display a
layout               Basic
romlist              mame
in_cycle             yes
in_menu              yes
global_filter       
rule                 Category contains Fight

Themes / Re: New Theme - Unified

Hello. I'm having a little problem getting out of the ATRACT MODE with the Unified theme. Instead of showing the output confirmation screen, the "Display's Menu" appears.
This does not happen in version 2.21, only on 2.3.
I hope someone can help me.

Thank you.

Sorry for my Google english. :o

General / Filters not working for different displays
« Last post by informix on July 14, 2018, 08:53:39 PM »
Trying to set up a few different displays to make getting around the 200 mame games I have..
First trying to set up just a "fighting" game display.

Using the following filter...

Code: [Select]
display a
layout               Basic
romlist              mame
in_cycle             yes
in_menu              yes
global_filter       
filter               All
filter               "2 Player Simultaneous"
rule                 Players contains sim
rule                 CloneOf not_equals .*
filter               "Fighting Scrolling"
rule                 Category contains Fight
rule                 Category contains Scrolling
rule                 CloneOf not_equals .*
filter               "Fighting Versus"
rule                 Category contains Fight
rule                 Category contains Versus
rule                 CloneOf not_equals .*

But it still shows every single game I have

Here is a 'bit' of my mame.txt
Code: [Select]
lwings;Legendary Wings (US set 1);mame;;1986;Capcom;Shooter / Flying Vertical;2;90;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);good;1;raster;;;;
mace;Mace: The Dark Age (boot ROM 1.0ce, HDD 1.0b);mame;;1996;Atari Games;Fighter / Versus;4;0;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);good;1;raster;;;chd;
mplanets;Mad Planets;mame;;1983;Gottlieb;Shooter / Field;1;270;joystick (8-way),dial;good;1;raster;;;;
mswordu;Magic Sword: Heroic Fantasy (USA 900725);mame;msword;1990;Capcom;Platform / Fighter Scrolling;2;0;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);good;1;raster;msword;;;
mhavoc;Major Havoc (rev 3);mame;;1983;Atari;Shooter / Misc.;2;0;dial,only_buttons;good;1;vector;;;;
marble;Marble Madness (set 1);mame;;1984;Atari Games;Maze / Marble Madness;2;0;trackball,trackball;good;1;raster;atarisy1;;;
mshu;Marvel Super Heroes (USA 951024);mame;msh;1995;Capcom;Fighter / Versus;2;0;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);good;1;raster;msh;;;

which looks like i have right.. Few games have category as Fighter... lots do not.. But everything shows up in the display.

I eventually just put in a very simple..

Code: [Select]
display a
layout               Basic
romlist              mame
in_cycle             yes
in_menu              yes
global_filter       
filter               All
filter               "Fighting Versus"
rule                 Category contains Fight

But still shows every single game I have.. Tried a few others.. players, year..   nothing seems to limit me down.. Every display i make always shows all my games.
i tried removing       filter               All   but that didn't help either..
Any  ideas what might be wrong.?
