I love the design of this theme! - Given that I am using a Taito Egret III with a 4:3 29" CRT - I am hoping I too will get to enjoy a 4:3 (horizontal) and 3:4 (vertical) version!

General / Re: Using AttractMode as a Windows shell replacement
« on: September 15, 2015, 10:40:32 AM »
cools - thanks for that hint - so on windows 7 - to get this going - don't use instant sheller, instead do this:

open Registry Editor and locate the following registry entry:

Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

Name: Shell

Type: REG_SZ

Value: Explorer.exe

now change that value to read this: C:\AttractMode\attract.exe -c C:\AttractMode
(change path to whatever you have)


Now question to you all - this WILL replace the shell - however it still will show the cmd terminal window at the start before it goes to the full screen front-end. Did any of you find a good solution to this by chance?

akafox - exactly that indeed :-) - The problem can be solved now though - by compiling a mame with the 'SUBTARGET=arcade' flag. I would be nice though that instead of going that route - we could flag this in the AM frontend instead

hermine.potter, thanks for your elaborate post - any guidance on how to have MAME compile for "MAME, arcade" only? So excluding the now integrated MESS piece?

Without wanting to sound silly - would this theme also work on 640x480 for us Arcade CRT guys?

akasoft - thanks for your reply

In this case you are indeed off - since MAME 0.162, the MAME and MESS codebase have merged, and what used to be called UME is now MAME, MESS no longer exists. There were also quite some changes made to the -listxml format, so many of the older tools will no longer work correctly until they get updated.

omegaman - thanks for your reply

I guess I am going to have to go back to the documentation to see as to where I can import that list for MAME

ROMlister does not (yet) support AM - is there a way I can import one of the currently supported exports out of ROMlister as an import for AM though? (e.g the standard XML output?)

Guys - I have a question, trying to setup AM with MAME 0.164 - I know MA uses the -listxml data to compile the games list, however, how can I filter out ANY AND ALL of the (since v 0.162) included MESS entries?

Just wanted to let you know how impressed I am by your frontend - it really is very intuitive and the fact it scales well on Arcade CRT screens is just the best feature ever
