Themes / fe.add_artwork() --- feature: random choice of file
« on: December 06, 2020, 04:48:47 PM »
I can't the a .nut function fe.add_artwork() so I assume it's compiled in the exe. What I want is for the system to choose a random image from the list of available locations.  So the emulator setting is something like: media/flyer;media/fanart;media/otherart. So up to 3 files should be available to display (more if they are in subfolder sets). Each time the image is choosen to display, attractmode should choose one at random from all available files. Currently, it only chooses from the first folder with a file in it. So in my example if media/flyer contains no files, media/fanart contains 2 inside a folder of the same game  name and media/otherart has one file, attract mode will cycle through the fanart files, but completely ignore the otherart file.

Scripting / using multiple emulators and other applications with one wheel
« on: November 17, 2020, 09:20:38 PM »
So I'm looking over the .nuts to find where the code is for executable, arguments and paths. What I want to do I simply add the possibility to run different apps using the same wheel names on the same wheel. So I can have multiple versions in test, multiple emulators and the great one: manuals open easily.  (yes, I know there is a manuals addon)  I'm imaging opening full videos, web searches and more all on the same wheel with many configured buttons.This should be just a few lines of code and would include a line for setting a button assigned to each. I would make up to 5 per wheel.
Thing is, I haven't found it yet and assume it's embedded in the compiled exe. Is it? Also, want to help?
