General / UltraStik360 configuration
« on: November 05, 2015, 03:36:30 PM »
Can someone running 1.6 64-bit post their Ultrastik360 plugin configuration?  I've got two of these joysticks but have been unable to get it working, and I think I'm just missing something conceptually.  Do I need to point to UltraMap for this?  Trying to figure out what I need to enter for "Path to the mapping executable".

Themes / Multiple monitors
« on: October 22, 2015, 12:43:22 PM »
In my picking around at the layouts it seems that if you have two monitors you need to use the coordinates in essentially one large grid, versus two smaller grids. 

Example:  Mon 1 = 1360x768, Mon 2 = 800x600

Attract-mode appears to consider it to be one large grid of 2160 X 1368, or something along those lines.

Is there any way to specify the artwork to go to a specific monitor in a way that is independent from the artwork/resolution of the first display?  The reason I ask is that one monitor is mounted in the marquee (similar to but not stretched the full width) and the primary one is the main display.  If I change the resolution on the marquee it affects the layout placement of the primary screen as well.  If I'm going to make a change to the marquee resolution for different apps it'd be nice to not have to re-adjust all of the artwork each time.

Hope this makes some sense :(

General / Option to mute audio output from video selectively
« on: August 14, 2015, 11:45:00 PM »
I have sound coming from:

local snap = fe.add_artwork( "snap", 0, 661, 400, 300 );
snap.pinch_y = 0;
snap.rotation = 0;
snap.preserve_aspect_ratio = true;

They are the game preview videos from emumovies.

I have sound coming from:

fe.add_image( "example.mp4", 0, 0, 1920, 1080);

How do I shut off the audio that comes from:  fe.add_artwork( "snap", 0, 661, 400, 300 );?

TL;Dr :  I want sound from example.mp4, but I don't want sound with the emumovies videos and would like to mute it

Anyone have this working?  :)

Scripting / Filters documentation?
« on: March 12, 2015, 09:30:18 PM »
I've come across some info here:

Is there any other resource for filter information?  I'd like to build some but more info out there would be great.  I generally just slash my way through code, bastardize it and then criticize it :) 

Using attracman, the preview videos are looking odd.  The video file does seem to come up on the screen and I might see 1-2 seconds of movement and it freezes.  On others it'll play right through with no freezing or stuttering.  Has anyone else seen this?  Based on the fact that I can see some videos and they're all in the same directory I think the path issue could be ruled out?

General / Mame filename showing instead of "clean" name on list?
« on: March 06, 2015, 10:18:43 PM »
One issue that I'm running into regardless of theme is the display of mame game names (say that five times) - normally maps to "Galaga" when displayed in a list.  I can tell there is some sort of interaction going on as some themes will show marquees that corresponds to the selected game.  How could I turn (example pulled out of butt) "polepos4" on the list to be "Pole Position IV"?  Any insight is appreciated!
