Hey Oomek, another coding question for you.

Is it possible to make the gamelist transparent? I noticed it's transparent briefly when it slides in or out, but then it becomes opaque when you scroll thru the list of games. I think it would look cool seeing the flyers change under the list of titles.

I tried playing with some stuff in layout.nut, but as usual I don't know what I'm doing so didn't figure it out.

You need to change the opacity value for the animations. Look for lines similar to this (there are multiple, one for each transition):

gameListBoxAnimA.from = 0
gameListBoxAnimA.to = 255

And change 255 to something lower like 200.

Or you can make it an option in layout config:

   </ label="List Box Opacity", help="Set List Box Opacity. 255 is equal to no opacity", options="100,200,255", order=16 /> ListBoxOpacity="255";   

local ListBoxAlpha = my_config["ListBoxOpacity"].tointeger();

then instead of 255 just set ListBoxAlpha:

gameListBoxAnimA.from = 0
gameListBoxAnimA.to =  ListBoxAlpha

General / Screensaver video snap quality on retropie zero
« Last post by wet8092 on Yesterday at 08:07:03 PM »
I'm using a retropie zero for a classic 8bit arcade machine.  I'm using nevato theme but the video is very choppy in the classic arcade menu but fine for other emulator menus (ie new, snes, etc).  I think it has to do with the tilt of the video in the arcade menu versus the standard "no tilt" display of the other menus, but not positive.  I reduced the video quality and it plays fine and looks good enough in the menu, but the screensaver video looks horrible full screen.

Is there any way to have the screensaver pull video snaps from a different snap folder versus the snaps used in the emulator menu?  Or, can a single video be selected and played such that I can just have 1 high quality video for the screensaver?

I've played around with screensaver.nut and can change index_offset to manipulate which video is played versus the current game, but I can't make it select just a single video or point to another snap folder.  Appreciate any help.

Try setting next_game and prev_game.

Thanks but that's one of the first things I've tried and it did not work.  The moment I set Prev Game to "left keyboard arrow" then it dissociates the existing "left keyboard arrow" bind for "LEFT (Previous Display)".   Resulting in the Left bind being broken/disassociated/not working in the config menus.

This is what happens:

Hi, anyone got up to date Mac and Ubuntu builds that they can share?

Attractmode builds? I compiled latest Mac build of attractmode and could share if that’s what you want. It works, but has errors.

No problem.  I'm glad it worked out!  :)

Scripting / Re: Any way to hide attract mode using scripts?
« Last post by progets on Yesterday at 11:54:39 AM »
I am trying to add a script to view PDF manuals, using fbgs. Attract mode is running on a Raspberry Pi without X.
I have set the script to run when custom2 (currently 'M') is pressed. The script is running, but attract mode still draws on top.
Is there any way to hide it without restarting it, or is this a different issue?

Try "Full Screen" mode instead of the default "Fill Screen". Pi FAQ #5 http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1249.0
