Will try that tonight. Thank you.

Just to be sure, since from the screenshots it really looks like the artwork is completely missing, are you sure your category is called "snap" and not "Snap" or "snaps" or any other spelling? :D I'm really puzzled

artwork is indeed labeled “snap”.

I renamed layout.nut to layout_shader.nut, and duplicated layout_noshader.nut to layout.nut. Video snap is shown! Snap images however do not.

I always run from terminal. No errors.

This is very strange :/ since you are using AF 2.3, can you try using the layout_noshader.nut instead? You should at least see snaps on thumbnails.

Will try that tonight. Thank you.

I tried the theme on my mac. Only artwork displayed is wheel. I assume it would play my snap artwork for the thumbnail. Am I doing something wrong?

The theme expects to have static screenshots and videos in the same category called "snap", I think this was the default settings in the "mame" emulator for Attract Mode. You don't see the artwork at all? What Mac are you running on? Also try disabling "gradient" on thumbnails and let me know if it changes anything

I have snaps and videosnaps paths both under the “snap” artwork for mame. What I’m seeing is similar to what some one else said they had seen in the beginning of this thread. I’m not sure if they resolved it.

Couldn’t sleep. Fully working and tested example. I choose to go with magic function because it’s only called on signal. It might make things speedier not being called every tick. Shouldn’t need to update in real time I would think, unless displaying hours/min/sec.

Code: [Select]
// Date
function updateTimestamp() {
  local days = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"];
  local months = ["January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"];
  local now = date();
  return now.day + "/" + months[now.month] + "/" + now.year;
}
local timestamp = fe.add_text("[!updateTimestamp]", 0, 0, fe.layout.width, fe.layout.height/20);

Thank you, I tried the second command and one of the output lines is:

OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20

now I understand why I can't use some 1.30 commands in GLSL shaders :D

Good to know! I am useless with shaders. If you are proficient, feel free to add to or change the shaders module I started on github! We have some people using good effects lately, but not enough time to keep up on everything.

now.month returns a value 0-11, perfect for indexing an array.

I suggest starting simple. Comment out the function and object. Create an instance of the now class. Print to console the month. If value checks out, create your month array with string values, and print array with now.month as the index. Does it work?

I am super exhausted. Will check back with you tomorrow afternoon and help troubleshoot if your still having issues.

Mac is unix, so maybe try this? I am not at my mac at the moment to test.

To Check OpenGL Version,
glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
You will get the output as follows,
glxinfo | grep "OpenGL version"
OpenGL version string: 1.4 (2.1 Mesa 7.7.1)
Edit:
You may have better luck with modern OpenGL just grepping for "version" instead of "OpenGL version" given the differences between the core and compat profiles, as well as the various GLSL and GLES versions:
glxinfo | grep 'version'
server glx version string: 1.4
client glx version string: 1.4
GLX version: 1.4
    Max core profile version: 4.1
    Max compat profile version: 3.0
    Max GLES1 profile version: 1.1
    Max GLES[23] profile version: 3.0
OpenGL core profile version string: 4.1 (Core Profile) Mesa 11.1.2
OpenGL core profile shading language version string: 4.10
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 11.1.2
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30
OpenGL ES profile version string: OpenGL ES 3.0 Mesa 11.1.2
OpenGL ES profile shading language version string: OpenGL ES GLSL ES 3.00
Notice that the actual version is presented by the "core profile version" (4.1), whereas the "OpenGL version" is presented as 3.0.

Scripting / Re: Error (index "0") while using Leap Plugin

Thank you for your extremely detailed explanation. It was an addition that happened after a few years of already using attractmode and I missed the wagon. I will test this tonight or tomorrow and try to provide a solution for the plugin.

I don’t use platform categories, nor do I understand how it works.

I have 3 displays (neogeo mvs, arcade, vs unisystem).

If you can walk me through setting something up, I’ll try to troubleshoot it for you. I think you might be correct.

thanks for making the rev-2 cant wait till you release it thanks..

did not know you were in to firewood, cool.

My father owns a logging company. I just changed careers last week to CNC electro-mechanical technician.

I changed the logic on the signal variable. I think it works correctly now. Give the experimental a try again with latest commit? It compares the distance between index and target, and the list size minus the distance between index and targe, and then selects appropriate direction based on index and target size comparison.

Is it possible except by random, to change the list in ascending order: 1,2,3 and so on?

I am not sure why you would want this. Anyways, fork it on GitHub now before I do an update, and change plugin.nut line 51 to the following:
Code: [Select]
if (ttime >= signalTime + delayTime) fe.filters.reverse_order = true;
Thanks again for your time. I tried and changed the code to line 51 but it does not work

I rechecked the docs. I guess I looked at it too quickly.

reverse_order - [bool] Will be equal to true if the list order has been reversed.

You need to test reverse_order and switch its boolean value.

Try:

Code: [Select]
if (ttime >= signalTime + delayTime)
  fe.filters.reverse_order ? fe.filters.reverse_order = false : fe.filters.reverse_order = true;

ok here it is...  showing two or three cycles of the game list by it's self
after not scrolling..

to me this embodies the word "attract mode" when put on a arcade cabinet. 

i think this would be the game changer for AM.

note:  this is what got me in to AM 4 years ago..IE:  i would walk out to get some milk say
2 to 3 in the morning.   and see AM on my arcade cabnet in my living room.
and it was going crazy with..all the difrint games that were of coruse the,, screen saver..
i could not go back to bed... i had to play...... :-* a new game i never saw

  • I added this feature.
  • It works.
  • It is not yet released.
  • It still has some small bugs and needs refinement.

It works similar as the first release - waiting for a period of time after the last signal before activating. Plugin then chooses a target for a random game, and sends a next_game signal until the target is reached.

FadeArt will not update until the current playing video is complete, I think.?
