Sound Great  :)

@jedione

I would like to add sound while click a button. But it is not work. Do you know how to do that? I suspect it is a bug for a AM.

I'm thinking of making my own layout and came across yours which is pretty close. The main difference would be that once you pick an emulator (e.g. MAME) you then are presented with another grid of the filters, you click on one of those, and then see the games that are in that filter. I use the filters to sort the many games into the standard categories (Run&Jump, Fighter, etc.) and would have an image or just even the name of the category in a 2D grid.

This would make finding a game more of a hierarchical experience which would I think is more intuitive.

I know sub menu is good for frontend. But I didn't know how to write the code. Finally, I develop a filter sub menu bar to be instead of. This is still WIP. What do you think ?

Demo

Re: Grid Pro Theme (v1.51 released) - Filter sub menu bar is WIP

Happy to say version 1.6 was released , below is filter menu bar setup guide, Enjoy

Demo 1.6
https://youtu.be/tqTNhgoRAJE

- add filter bar
- bugs fix

1. Create Filter - edit attact.cfg

example:

Code: [Select]
display MAME
layout               GridPro
romlist              MAME
in_cycle             yes
in_menu              yes
filter               All
filter               Favourites
rule                 Favourite equals 1
filter               Action
rule                 Category contains Fighter
filter               Shooting
rule                 Category contains Shooter
filter               Racing
rule                 Category contains Driving
filter               Sports
rule                 Category contains Sports
filter               Puzzle
rule                 Category contains Puzzle


2. Edit Filter Bar Part I in layout.nut

example:

It controls a text initial name of filter shown in the bar.

Code: [Select]
local fbt1 = fe.add_text ("ALL", -18, 30, 73, 18);
local fbt2 = fe.add_text ("FAV", 52, 30, 73, 18);
local fbt3 = fe.add_text ("ACT", 122, 30, 73, 18);

3. Edit Filter Bar Part II in layout.nut

You need to update below value to match your system filter name

Code: [Select]
case "All":
...
case "Favourites":
...
case "Action":

4.  Assign button for Previews Button & Next Button on AM option-> Controls

5. Enjoy

There are some issues I noticed with 1.6 HD version. fwiw, I am running on the nightly build, though stable is affected as well:

For the 'GridPro' layout, videos are not properly updating when selecting an item that scrolls the list. A video still plays, because you can hear it, but no video is displayed, only the snapshot. Selecting an item horizontally does not fix this, but selecting vertically does, making videos appear again.

I noticed the 'timeout' does not reset when selecting horizontally, but it does vertically and when the list scrolls. Complete opposite of the video problem, so possibly related. additionally, the select sound is only emitted vertically, and not horizontally.

couple suggestions:
* you should move your project to github. you can have zip releases, instead of using drop box
* please consider adding a layout option to turn off the background music for the display menu

Thank you for your suggestion and may be updated later.

For videos and timer issue, please make sure controls setting like as below image.

I think it may be bugs for AM  :o

I went ahead and fixed the issues and made some enhancements while I was in there. I have attached the updated nuts to this post. Use or dont use however you like. Note that this is the HD version only.

List of changes:
* pretty heavy refactor of the 'GridPro' nut, have a look
* fixed videos not updating properly when paging the list
* layout stuff was moved into the class, so that the idle reset could take advantage of the native selection from the conveyor. this was done so that tracking and updating the idle count wasnt being done through a timer
* idle count is now flushed out immediately on reset
* selection sound was moved to update_frame instead of the less accurate transition callback
* the filter bar is no longer hard coded: it will build the list dynamically from what filters are configured on the display. The first three characters are taken as the abbreviated name, since how you have this setup is fixed width.
* If there is no year, the title will no longer have blank parenthesis. example: "Game Title ()"
* updated the signals logic from the official 'Grid' layout
* idle timeout out can now be disabled in the options
* selection sound can now be disabled in the options. Please note that AM has general sound options already for selections, so forcing playback (especially as 'music') may have problems for people that have these configured
* background music on 'GridPro_Menu' can now be disabled in the options

enjoy~
