I have a semi-fix for SDAMax... but not the SDArcade layouts... to get this to work with 2.5.1 on the PC (it works on the Pi3?!?)... all you have to do is copy the carrier.nut file from the scripts subfolder in the layout to the modules folder.   Not sure why that's necessary as it works PERFECTLY FINE on older versions of Attract-Mode with the carrier.nut file just sitting in the scripts folder within the layout?!

UPDATE:  If I move the conveyor.nut from my scrips folder (which worked before) and put it in the MODULE folder... it seems to work... MOSTLY. 

SDAMax now seems to work... however the SDArcade layouts appear to still be partially broke.  It appears the x and y coordinates for the location of the "carrier" isn't working right simply putting the carrier at 0,0 it appears...

SMALL UPDATE: Actually, the ARpiCADE 3.83 includes Attract-Mode 2.5.1... so oddly the layouts work fine with the Pi3 version 2.5.1. but are utterly broke using the PC version of 2.5.1...

Does that make sense at all?

Found all past releases (durr)... I will spend some time tonight trying to determine at which version the layouts broke.  I suspect it may be the latest as I am currently running 2.5.0 on my Pi3 without issue using the layouts in question.

...and I can now confirm that the original SDArcade version is also broke.

What is strange is that the SDARcade versions all are broke but will load up and show the marquee, etc... whereas my SDAMax layouts are so broke that the "default" menu comes up...

ALL work great in 2.3.0.

HELP!

General / Attract-Mode 2.5.1 Breaks My Layouts - [UPDATE - NO IT DOESNT]
« Last post by FrizzleFried on January 11, 2019, 05:34:05 PM »
Attract-Mode 2.5.1 breaks a number of my layouts.  It appears that the CARRIER module is not working properly in 2.5.1... I can say FOR SURE that it works in 2.3.0... and unfortunately I do not have any versions between 2.3.0 and 2.5.1 to determine exactly when the issue arises.

Can someone point me to where i can find the versions between 2.3.0 and 2.5.1 to test?

Anyone know knows more than I willing to poke around my layouts to see why they are broke on 2.5.1?

The layouts in question are:

SDArcade v2+ (I have not had time to test the original version yet,  but I am confident it too will be broken as it appears the issue is with the CARRIER module).
SDAMax v1 and v1.1

Can someone tell me the official way to report this issue to the author (if there is one)?

Thanks!

General / Strange AM Auto Exit Issue When Auto Starting
« Last post by mrteeney on January 11, 2019, 05:08:51 PM »
A few months ago, I had a weird issue where AM would launch two instances when auto starting in Windows 10.  That went away and now I have a weird exiting issue that when you exit the first game from Attract Mode, it closes both MAME and AM and drops back into Windows.  If AM is launched manually the problem subsides, it's only when it auto launches.  My arcade cabinet is running Windows 10 Pro on old HP desktop hardware, I have a shortcut to AM that launches from the Windows start-up folder.  There is a dedicated controller button that exits the game (button 11).  I've changed the remapping of MAME to end using only the Keyboard escape key, and the "back" button in AM is the dedicated button, but still doesn't effect anything.

It appears that the new version of Attract-Mode has a problem with the CARRIER module that this layout ... and SDArcade layout uses?!

Again,  at this point,  I am going to need some help to determine why ... or anyone wanting to use the SDarcade layout (any of them) or this SDAMax layout will have to use an older version of attract mode.

Can someone point me to an "official" way to let the author of Attract-Mode know this is happening?

Heck,  it appears that the new version breaks my SDArcade layout... as well as the older versions of it as well...

At this point,  unless someone can help me determine what is broken,  your only option would be to use an older version of Attract-Mode.

:(

I can confirm this layout is NOT working on 2.5.1 version of attract-mode... but it works fine on 2.3.0...

Now to figure out why?!?  To be honest,  I have ZERO idea where to even start.  Can anyone chime in as to why a module would work in 2.3.0 fine but 2.5.1 breaks it?

EDIT:  BTW ... the Pi3 version I am using I believe is the version that came our before 2.5.1... and it works.
