Themes / pandoras box 5 "release" by jedione
« on: August 12, 2018, 12:49:40 PM »
ok as promised... :D

here is my new theme...seems like there never 100% ready

name = pandoras box 5

based on  = 960 in 1 jamma board pcb

included: is the start up video to complete the feel! place it in the "intro folder"

= up-down by game or,,,,,,  left & right for afabetic letter skip.

for this theme in needs the latest AM build 2.4
because it is using the new "blend mode" for the bg-smoke affect.

also grab a copy of the shuffle module here

thanks to keilmillerjr for the shuffle module.
thanks to zpaolo11x for your blur-code, aka-ambiaunce-blur

layout options include:

#1 clasic background or new ambiaunce-background   ,,,set to videos
IE" "  artwork    video      C:\arcadesd\mame\mame0.180\roms\vertshmups\art "

#2 music folder , set layout music to your chioce "music-1,music-2,music-3,none,"

#3 not every one is going to want a theme that say's pandoras box 5 !
all the time.
so the last option is a logo change from pandoras.png logo to "marquees"
to keep it very arcade friendly.

#4 trade videos for snaps in the preview box.

notes: best when played full screen.

if you can help make this better, please do and thanks for making AM the best FE out..

« on: July 18, 2018, 05:28:48 AM »
asking for some help,  this is what i have

windows 10 running the latest AM build.

i want to run my primary arcade cab in my room from my computer near by.

iv got ,retroark  and mame all set up loading on "extended display" 
on the second monitor "\\.\DISPLAY2"

so im thinking ok the hard part is done...

now the Q:  i can not get AM to open up, or full screen on the extended 2nd monitor.
I can though,  just drag it over in windowed and maximize it and it is doing what i want except
for the windowd bar at the top...but as soon as i change to fullscreen it will snap back to screen #1

oh ya also in tab general i do have "enable mutable monitors  yes"

also read abought a "multymon" plugin? that might help

Scripting / Q: on missing art for FadeArt module
« on: December 04, 2017, 01:56:28 PM »
so lets say your using this to add a snap....
local snap = fe.add_artwork(  "snap", flx*0.050, fly*0.200, flw*0.200, flh*0.250 );

and you dont have a "snap" for it ,,if you put a pic or a vid in the layout called "snap.png" it
will use that in place of the missing..

ok.. now if your using ..module fadeart
local snap = FadeArt (  "snap", flx*0.050, fly*0.200, flw*0.200, flh*0.250 );
it dont work.

Q: anyone know how to add a filler for this..thanks
