Scripting / animation scale, Q:
« on: October 20, 2018, 07:18:34 AM »
trying to solve an isu i have with animate ' scale"

here is the simple code.
Code: [Select]
local scale = fe.add_artwork( "snap", flx*0.580, fly*0.360, flw*0.200, flh*0.200 );
local scale_scale_cfg = {
when =Transition.ToNewSelection,
property = "scale",
start = 0.8,
end = 1.2,
time = 0700,
tween = Tween.Linear,
//delay = 3000,
animation.add( PropertyAnimation(scale, scale_scale_cfg ) );

it works fine, with out the delay, as soon as you add the delay
what happens is the snap sits their visable for the delay time
then does the scale,

Scripting / help with game indicator bar....
« on: September 27, 2018, 06:32:35 PM »
so iv seen two or three theems now that are using a bar  to indicate your
position or letter index of you rom colection

iv tried breaking the themes down to see if i could isolate just the code
but seems their all heavily tied to a lot of options config,  so it will break the theme.

all im looking for would be the most generic simple coding to make this bar
my goal is to make it into a donut, file that the themer can use and alter .

soon im hoping to release a zip file that will contain abought 20 plus donut to simplefy codeing
for many to build cool themes

hear is generic  pic of it..

thanks if you can help me.....

Scripting / looking for shaders help
« on: September 03, 2018, 08:11:23 AM »
so iv been messing around , with a blur shader and it seems to only be able to be applied
to an image..  you can size move it around ext...

was thinking what if you were to put a pic behind it,  and make the blured .frag image trans parent
via  ".alpha = 0;

you would have somthing that would look like this....blurred trans translucent boxes

not the case though..if anyone knows how this could be done or if even possile in AM
could you please chime in...  thanks

i have a theme concept that requires it.

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..
