I have no expertise in fixing it, but I guess it couldn’t harm to have it out there so that those who had the ability could fix it.

Once again, a huge thanks for your work. It’s an excellent theme.

I contacted the author but as they never got around to the 2.0 update nothing ever came of it.

Well... I'm just sitting on it trying to find some time to test it before release. But maybe I simply release it as is for other to test it - and maybe even fix it.

Maybe I should put it on GitHub? Is this a good idea?

Emulators / Re: Nestopia Direct3D error
« Last post by MasterZoen on Yesterday at 03:52:56 AM »
Also, WinKawaks give the following error:

DirectDraw Sample

Failed initializing DirectDraw.


As I previously said, the emulator works fine when I launch it on it's own. These errors are only occurring when I try to launch via Attract Mode.

Did anybody ever have an issue with Flat_Blue displaying different filters incorrectly? I have around ten different genre filters for MAME, and when I switch from one Flat_Blue filter to another (Fighting Game filter to Shooter filter for example), Flat_Blue duplicates the display name (it displays Fighting Game, followed by Fighting Game). The actual game list displayed is correct, but the display name isn't, meaning you can't tell which filter you're viewing. I've double checked all the names in the theme settings and they are correct.

I've noticed that this behavior only occurs when switching between filters running the Flat_Blue theme. If for example I go from Fighting Game (Flat_Blue theme) to Platformer (Basic Theme) to Shooter (Flat_Blue theme), the correct names will be displayed. I contacted the author but as they never got around to the 2.0 update nothing ever came of it. Did anybody else have this issue and find a solution? Flat_Blue is by far the cleanest theme on AM when it comes to auto-detecting between vert and hori in a cab, and it would be great to be able to use it.

Emulators / Nestopia Direct3D error
« Last post by MasterZoen on Yesterday at 03:22:49 AM »
Hello,

I'm having a bit of a problem. Nestopia works fine when run itself, but when trying to launch a game from Attract Mode it throws up an error window that says the following:

Nestopia Error

Can't start! Direct3D is busy!



I'm planning to recycle an old gaming pc as an arcade cabinet, but I've never used a front end before and I have no clue what the problem here is.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks, in advance.

Yeah, it's very frustrating as I used to have GM1.93 with AM2.3 running and I never had this problem. I don't think it's a Windows 7 issue as I run my cab PC offline so there's no way it could be an update issue on Windows side.

If anybody has any advice that could solve this I'd be hugely grateful. My cab is pretty much unusable until I can get AM running.  :'(

Hi again...

When I go to scrape attract mode displays the following message at the bottom of the screen

"Error Getting Platform List from thegamesdb.net.  Code $1."

Is there anyway to fix this or another scraper I can use?
