my intention of that question was not to spend the next 2 weeks learning new script languange now.

My list of attractmode bugs to fix and features to add for people is growing, but my time to do this stuff is shrinking. Spend the time and learn it. If you need help, can always steer you in the right direction.

Does launching groovymame with a rom from the terminal work correctly? Proper res switching?

Start looking through the source code for the plugin you are using.

https://github.com/mickelson/attract/blob/master/config/plugins/KeyboardSearch.nut

I am not a programmer.

I’ve spent the past 24hrs broken down in my pickup in the cold with little help. I’m on a cell phone buddy. Take a look. See what you can do. Or don’t use the search plugin.

The onyx arcade one looks close to the heal thing. I could take a picture of my happ 25” bezel, but I hacked it a bit to fit in my Neo Geo cabinet. Maybe some one with nos can place it on a white posterboard with decent lighting and snap a high res pic. If I take one, you’ll get the curves. But are close to onyx arcade one. It contours in 4 directions. But from a center perspective, it will have a curved illusion.

I could be wrong, but perhaps whoever created this “wheel” (a few different versions) is changing indexes tied to button presses? It’s probably not attract related. What module is in use?

Thank you for your reply.
I'm not sure what you mean but I generated all the wheels through AM's menu (Generate Collection/Rom List) and use the 'Cosmo Systems' layouts I downloaded from these forums. What do you mean by "what module is in use"?

Cheers
Attract only generates a romlist. The “wheel” is something someone coded in squirrel. Two different things.

Source is published as a zip, so I can’t examine it until tonight when on pc. You need to examine what’s packages in that zip.

Thank you for your hard work. AM is a wonderful front end!

There are two consistent bugs regarding the search function:
1. The game logo and boxart do not update after search:
- go into any system wheel where games are listed and search for a game. Then without moving the wheel, search for another game. The wheel logo and boxart are not updated and still shows the previous search result.
Example: Let's say we are in the MS-DOS wheel which has many games and I search for "Loom", then without moving the wheel, I search for "Warcraft". The Loom game logo and boxart will still be shown. Please see attached screenshot.

2. AM crashes if you search for a game in the System wheel (where only systems are listed).

These bugs where tested on v2.5.1 as well.

Cheers.

General / Re: How to troubleshoot a theme crashing?
« on: November 14, 2018, 05:53:25 AM »
That's odd that attract would actually crash because of a theme.

Some general debugging things I do.
  • Set attract in windowed mode so you can see console/terminal at the same time.
  • Verify you have correct dependencies (modules) for theme.
  • Use debug plugin to reload layouts and show framerate.
  • Print to terminal a test string or variable to string to narrow down your error. If already using helpers module, there's a print function to include a line return making it easier.

Scripting / Re: help to find letter postion
« on: November 12, 2018, 08:40:39 AM »
Could you just use find(value) to return the array index?

charlist.find(fe.game_info(Info.Title).slice(0,1))+1)*20   this way?

Unfortunately, when I change games, position is not updated

Do it inside your magic function instead of your foreach loop and compare line. Both do the same thing. Just trying to clean up code. :)

Totally different. You would have to recreate it.

General / Re: what is the best way to optimize performance?
« on: November 09, 2018, 11:46:02 AM »
You need to look at all squirrel code executed by active plugins/themes/modules. Reducing the following will help with performance: layers, callbacks, things happening every tick. Animations will do it. Keep it simple if you can.
