Try Groovy Arcade

The only reason I choose not to go with groovyarcade is because it’s not actively maintained and I had issues with networking not working. Since, there was been a single 2018 release from some one and perhaps its fixed? We need more people on the project to make it viable to switch from windows.

The videos explaining things in English, are a bad idea for those of us from non-English speaking countries... Thank you very much...  ???
As a non-native English speaker myself, I concur that text based instructions would be better, for they can be auto-translated quite easily on the web.

However, many people today (though not I) prefer videos to text, so I can understand the decision for a video as well. English is the next best thing to a universal language today, and the video in question has captions that can be enabled, so anyone who can at least read English should be able to understand it.

Last, but not least, AM is a non-profit product with corresponding low resources. Anyone who wants instructions in other languages is free to create them by themselves, or pay others to do it.

All of my repositories have readme files. :o Video is to provide examples of why you would want to use tags and the parser. Most people that use attractmode (based on what I’ve seen in mame facebook groups) download prebuilt rpi images and have no clue what a tag file even is.

I just set up my mac which I develop on with mame, flyers, minis (neogeo), roms, snap, videosnaps, and wheels for neogeo, nofiller2p, and vsnes - really easy and only takes up 9.18GB. Doesn’t clutter my development machine. My production machine, the MVS, can have complete sets as I have an SSD large enough, and just rely solely on the tag system.

Youtube Videos Closed Caption Translations
Desktop (Tested Mac 10.13 and Safari 11.1) -> Youtube Video -> Enable CC Button -> Settings (Gear) Button -> Subtitles/CC -> Auto-Translate -> Select Language -> Wait a few seconds for translations to appear

I have had mixed results doing this on my iPhone. It seems to only want to translate to the videos native language. Use a desktop.

Leap should have no dependencies. It’s a plug-in and independent of layouts. Try a default layout and disable other plugins. Perhaps something is messing with the signal? Let me know if it works or not like that.

Thanks for your job.

I have downloaded the leap plugin, I have put it in my system and I have activated it in the AM menu, but it does not do anything.

In addition to empty Favorites, I have created a filter with a condition that will not give me any results, and it also appears along with favorites.

Should we do more?

It works 100% for me. Will you be on discord tonight? I’m eastern time. I jut upgraded to 2.4 last night.

I’ve been busy lately. Yayaya. Obtained a new job and waiting for the official offer, fixing CNC machines and eventually will be programming the PLC’s. With the release of mame 0.200, I decided to update my romset and push some things I worked on a while ago to GitHub.

playchoicecomplete is a layout inspired from the Nintendo Playchoice-10 arcade machine. Once my romset is finished updating, I’ll get a proper gif. I think it would be weird showing you guys this theme with only neo geo titles as I currently have nothing else on my dev machine. Repo is pushed and should be all set minus that gif, if you want to check it out.

QuirkFix is a plugin that helps to fix small user quirks during arcade use. It can close emulator after specified period of inactivity. This can eliminate burn in from a game left on. AttractMode has a good screensaver. It can also close emulator after holding signal (key) for specified period of time. This prevents accidental button press exiting emulator. It can also be expanded based on feedback, but would like to keep it lightweight. I just need to compile and create docs.

attract-tag-parser is a ruby script that parses attract tag lists and can tell you which files you have matching/missing, copy resources matching the tag list, etc. Its meant to be used with something like the no filler tag list I created for attract, or any custom one you choose. You can create small romsets tailored for your specific setup. Code is like 90% complete. All components work, but I have some command line print out issues that need to be resolved.

Flavors theme could use a small update. I realized that people are actually using the theme. I’m currently at 0% completion with it. It’s probably a single hours worth of work, to get some small formatting updated and the shaders for vertical mode corrected.

Hopefully I can get these completely finished and shared this week.

I think I figured out in my head how to add animation compatibility to shuffle to make it more wiiflow/conveyor like, while still being super easy and layout developer configurable - but we will see if I ever get to it.

@zlagos what’s your error output on the curl for brew? Did you install command line tools?

Open the layout file and comment those objects out. It’s a simple theme, and shouldn’t be hard to find the objects even for a non-programmer. I’m sure they use descriptive variable names. // is the comment symbol in squirrel.

About Attrac-Mode 2.4 at Mountain Lion, nothing can be done.

Version 2.4 searches for libraries that Mountain Lion does not have and that can only be installed through homebrew.

And in Mountain Lion now there is no way to install homebrew.

So you have to settle for version 2.2  :'(




False. I had it installed on mountain lion. You need to install XQuartz I believe. I’ve been consistently running brew for a long time now.

And in Mountain Lion NOW there is no way to install homebrew. And if you can, prove it  8)

And I would really appreciate an Attract.app 2.4 that worked correctly in Mountain Lion. ;D

Try this: https://gist.github.com/myobie/1860902

Ps I have a website with an initial git commit using image magik installed via Homebrew when mountain lion came out in 2012. Until recently, I would sometimes even update on developer releases since os10 came out. I remember getting it working.

Mame.xml includes the number of players. It works. I created the fix for newer mame versions in attract 2.4. Not sure why we would need nplayers.ini? I’m not really familiar with it.

Code: [Select]
fe.load_module("shuffle");
I think isnt on the default AM package.

Modules and Plugins Gallery

Other people should also add their work to the thread. Might be a good idea to list modules required for layout that are not merged into the attract repo.

Keilmillerjr, I try to keep everything updated to the latest versions. I am running Windows 10 home (64-bit, build 1803), MAME .199, and AM 2.4.0 (64-bit). You mentioned later revisions of Windows 10 changing stuff related to AM? Maybe that is my problem?

Informix, thank you for sharing your config files. I will check mine against yours tomorrow when I have an opportunity, I am curious to see if any setting differences have any bearing on this. One thing that appears to be different is that I have all of my MAME files inside the “emulators” subfolder within the AttractMode folder rather than being outside of AM completely. I believe in the settings I have all of my paths being relative to the main AM folder.

Maybe something in this thread will help?

Last resort, I know 1607 works. Is anyone else here running 1803?
