We can see that each area/file is using a different character. Pájaros vs. Pßjaros vs. Pájaros (which of these is correct?). We know this is the issue but not why.

Here are things you could test:
1. try the "basic" layout in AttractMode (yours looks custom and it could be something in your layout.nut)
2. do you have the same issues with game roms or just these songs? (i.e. show us entries of a romlist.txt that was created by AM and not your script and let us know if it works properly)
3. from the console/command line do a "dir" on your rom folder and your artwork folder. also do an "echo" on the romlist. do these show the same correct characters here on the windows command line (outside of AM)
4. i know when I setup a Linux based OS I tell it to use EN_US_UTF-8. If I use EN_UK_UTF-8 most of my keys work properly but some don't work such as "$" since they are specific to the region. I don't remember ever needing to specify anything that specific in windows but I'm from the US and speak english which are both defaults for windows. you might check this out (I don't know if it's accurate)

P.S. I see you have mentioned compiling AM in this thread Are you using an official AM download or one you or somebody else compiled? Have you tested your issue with older versions of AM?

and the vertical one but ... it's not a good job because i don't use fe.layout.orient  ... texts are "scrappy" with this font so :
- the layout stay in horizontal position
- rotation of each elements!L55DiAJT!5QfKHs3qgkx3KCgiLNnLFeKHIOb4shGk7LshWMvtfKA

Not bad! I like it.

Take a look at my flavors layout. Could easily make it work any orientation.

That is so cool. I've always hand-picked my colors - but THIS is so much fun!


I’ve used generators like it for web design. Huge help for the color handicapped. Lol
Scripting / Re: info and number of buttons?
« Last post by keilmillerjr on June 19, 2018, 07:22:34 AM »

Is Info.Buttons available on all versions of Mame? I'm running AM with Mame 0.185 and Info.Buttons doesn't return anything...

That’s because I made a pull request to fix the issue months ago on GitHub and no accept. We need to get on top of accepting these requests.

I can compile for Mac with the fix, and some one compiled windows for me. I forgot who, sorry. It was a conversation with help on discus channel. If anyone needs it let me know.

What OS are you using and have you properly set the language, keyboard, location, etc. settings?

If your OS is Linux you should see the console messages/errors from AM. If you're using Windows you can try...
1. Download the console version of AM from here
2. Extract the attract.exe file and rename it to attract-console.exe.
3. Place this file in your existing AM install folder and run it. You should see what's happening in the console window as you scroll through the games.

I use Windows 10 in Spanish (Spain). And my jukebox.cfg file is encoded in UTF-8:

Code: [Select]
@echo off
:: temporarily change console codepage to UTF-8
>NUL chcp 65001

:: create Jukebox.txt
for %%i in ("%output%\*.m3u") do @echo %%~ni;%%~ni;Jukebox;;;;;;;;;;;;;; >> "%musiclist%\Jukebox.txt"

And when I open it in the notepad, - an example line - it reads:

Code: [Select]
Amaral - Pájaros En La Cabeza - 2005;Amaral - Pájaros En La Cabeza - 2005;Jukebox;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

But in the Attract-Mode console it appears with the following characters:

Code: [Select]
Loading TXT: E:\arcade\sistemas\pinballs\jukebox\roms/Amaral - Pßjaros En La Cabeza - 2005.m3u

That does not look like ANSI code, because when i convert Jukebox.cfg from UTF-8 to ANSI, it says:

Code: [Select]
Amaral - Pájaros En La Cabeza - 2005;Amaral - Pájaros En La Cabeza - 2005;Jukebox;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

This is a mess, I do not know what's happening here...

Actually interface is not too bad (I've expected much worse).

What is really BAD that they put that tiny 3.5" screen.
I didn't realise how ridiculously small it is until this video.

But they could fit almost 5" in this cab!
