dam, this is cool....just tryed on a 2.3 set up    works great!  thank you
this is a great colectors tool.

love how you can see overviews you have and still need.. :)

probaley will need a revamp for 2.4 because of the location and extention change

thank you
Thanks, hope it works for you.

And yes, before I developed a complex but sure workflow (you should see my Excels) and learned to code my own tools, I looked for every tool I could find that could help minimize the mess that is to try to tame these old sets.

That is why I made the extra effort to try to polish this one, hoping it might be useful to someone else.

There are more where this came from :-) simpler ones. I'll post them but I think I need to upgrade them to v2.4 before doing so. What do you think?
Very cool! I can’t wait to try it! Similar idea to the tool I just released last week, but a different approach that has me thinking about thinks other people might need!
*Attract Mode V2.3 only (I think)

To help me organize the mess of material I have gathered over more than a decade, I build an Autoit script (with GUI) that looks into the assets (snaps, covers, etc) I have and gives me statistics on each system I use on Attract Mode.

It ends up being a lot of help finding missing and surplus material buried on the assets folders as well as missing game information (year, publishers and genre.)

I don´t know how big of a problem this is to the rest of you, but the systems I have are not always the most popular ones (TRS Color, for instance) so I have some problem collecting extra stuff. More than a decade of gathering material from all over the webs and the fact that the scrapers do not (at least for me) do a wonderful job also do not help, so I thought the need to see the big picture at one place would be nice.

I compiled and polished the thing a little and I think it is ready to be used on the outside world.
Unfortunately, I think it only works on Attract Mode v2.3 I still haven’t v2.4 installed.

That is it. If you try it, please tell me what you think.

(ps. it can take some time to build the info, ~5 min on my ~8k roms (across all systems), but I think it can take a LOT more on a complete MAME set alone)

Arcadeflow 2.0 is out!

It uses shaders instead of pre-generated artwork for shadows and blurred backgrounds, and I'm crossing my fingers that it's not exploding :D

I don’t think you would have to rewrite your theme as async loading will be done by Attract Mode internally.

Even better. But I'll find some other reason to rewrite my theme, I'm sure :D

I can drop it and finish Ambience, but you have to answer it for yourself, what is more important, finishing my theme, or async image loading for AM ;)

That's a tough choice :D I'm a fan of Ambience HD but I also would like async image loading for my theme... and that would mean I'll have to re-rewrite it... all of this is FUN :D
