Hey there! I absolutely love that theme. Actually built an arcade box based on that and it looks amazing.
I do have a major issue though - it looks like AM keeps running in the background hogging CPU usage after I launch games. I don't get that issue with other AM themes. Could you please advise?

With NxL theme:


With any other theme:

not sure, Iv never had that issue, so i am going to guess its due to AttactMode thinking its still the focus window and your game isnt taking full control of the focus window
id try if using rocket-launcher playing with fade title and setting that for games that do weird things like that

Hey atrfate, thanks for your reply.

I fiddled around with all the fade, pre-launch and whatnot options I could think of in RLUI but no dice. Even the 'Suspend Frontend' option in RLUI main settings doesn't fix the issue.

I feel I should stress that simply going to Configure > Displays > Nesica UI > Layout and choosing another layout fixes the issue. It only occurs when NXL HD / SD / Vertical is selected, so I guess my RLUI settings are correct?

For the record:
- I tested this on two different setups (my arcade box, Q4400 with 8 Gb RAM and my desktop, i5-4460 @3.20 GHz with 16 Gb RAM, both Win10 64 bits) -> Repro each time.
- I redownloaded AM NXL from scratch and manually reconfigured RLUI -> Repro.
- I tried a variety of games: Nesica, doujin games, Steam -> Repro each time. I haven't tried another emulator than PCLauncher though.

CPU usage also shoots up when AM regains focus (up to 80% on my i5), although I'd venture it has more to do with AM using software video decoding.

Hi atrfate,

I bypassed RLUI/PCLauncher by using this very simple windows_games.cfg to launch a game directly, and still got the same issue. So it doesn't appear to be related to RLUI after all.

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.0-1
#
executable           cmd
args                 /c "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\NesicaXlive\Games\windows_games
romext               .lnk;.bat;
system               PC
info_source          thegamesdb.net
artwork    flyer           $HOME/windows_games/boxart
artwork    marquee         
artwork    snap            $HOME/windows_games/videos;$HOME/windows_games/snap
artwork    wheel

Hello
? made like this.
Games are starting with this method but the attractmode is still working at the backround, and you can hear the music of the Snap Videos.
I mean normally when you enter the game attractmode menu is paused and you only can play the game. But with this method, it is still working backround. there will be 2 sounds. Game sound and menu sound.
What should i do ?
