General / Re: AM hangs on exit from MAME

Try removing the "exit_hotkey    escape" from your mame.cfg. If that doesn't work let us know the exact version of AM you're using.
Scripting / Re: Question about carrier.nut image sizing.
« Last post by keithcorcoran on January 16, 2019, 07:24:16 PM »
that's actually what I did.

since this implementation only has 3 games it's like no effort. 

that said, is there a way to keep AM from antialiasing when it scales to screen size?

(this is kind of a layout vs scripting question but...)

I plan to either go from RCA out to a CRT NTSC TV or figure out how to get video from the Pi into my arcade CGA with as little hardward(cost) as possible.

Unsure if I should design my theme at 320x240 or 640x480 (in case I am outputting HDMI to VGA to CGA - my least preferred option)

Since NTSC is '525 lines'  I don't knwo what that ends up being in pixels for purposes of creating a theme that appears as hard pixels without antialiasing.
Is there any way to keep AM from antialiasing the layout when it resizes it to screen size?

in case anyone has this same question.. everything mentioned here worked if you want to edit the lists that show and I realized the difference between 'show in display' and 'show in cycle' 

thanks for your help gentlemen

default-emulator.cfg is a template and not part of your issue. When I said emulator.cfg, I meant <emulator/system>.cfg. Sorry if I wasn't clear but I wanted the Super Nintendo.cfg file you posted. Es_settings.cfg has nothing to do with AttractMode screensavers, only EmulationStation screensavers.

When you are in your Super Nintendo Display do you see the videos play? If your screensaver is activated while in your Super Nintendo Display do you see the videos?

In your attract.cfg I see these lines
Code: [Select]
param                basic_movie No
param                blank_start_cmd
param                blank_stop_cmd
param                blank_time 12000000000000
param                image_collage No
param                movie_collage Yes
param                overlay_art None
param                preserve_ar Yes
param                rgb_movie Yes
param                sound No

You can try to adjust these setting and see if it helps.
Code: [Select]
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Screen Saver Timeout = 60
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Basic Movie = yes
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Movie Collage = no
Configure-->Screen Saver-->RGB Movie = no
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Preserve Aspect Ratio = no
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Sound = yes

Me again. Still no idea what I need to do (or even try next) to fix this constant crashing after exiting from Mame. Has no one else run into this and managed to solve it? Thinking I might have to gut my AM install and start over. Ugh. :(
i use the prebuilt with no issues
I haven’t used the scrap feature. I would try compiling yourself. I know there is two different methods to compile on windows. Perhaps one method doesn’t include the library? Compiling yourself is a starting point. I don’t run windows on my “pc”.
Hi, I'm an attractmode noob with the same issue. Haven't posted anything else yet but I've been watching the thread so I don't duplicate. Other than the scraping it works great. Either nobody has a clue or there's a hush hush secret.  ;D
