Great theme!

I can't get videos to play in the background for whatever reason. I have an old Optiplex running windows 10 with integrated graphics and have the videos listed under C:/mame/video and the reference path matching. At least, I think I do. I'm relatively new to this stuff. Could someone point me in the right direction of getting this fixed? Thanks!

Thanks,

Load up AttractMode, open the options, then go to Emulators, then mame, and make sure that both image snaps and video snaps are set up under the snap art type.. e.g. "c:\mame\video;c:\mame\snap".  Hope that helps!

Unfortunately this fix didn't help in my case (but it was a few versions earlier, and on mac).
I've put my videos in the same folder as snap (screenshots) - and it fixed the issue.
And it was not only for FLAT BLUE - for other themes too.

So chris' advice is solid - but if doesn't solve the issue - try the above.

Hi all! First of all this theme looks great

I would like to create two lists of games, one with horizontal ones and the other with vertical ones, when one of the category is selected the theme will switch to the proper orientation (not only the games but also the theme), is this possible?

Something like the function in Mala where the screen rotates after pressing a key

It is possible:

1.
create 2 separate displays using FLAT BLUE as layout
A - with game filter showing only horizontal games
B - with game filter showing only vertical games


2.
for B choose LAYOUT OPTIONS -> LAYOUT ROTATION  -> (RIGHT) or (LEFT) depending on how you turn your display


3.
switch between displays using button [next display] - configurable in general AM options


4.
there is no step 4 - mission accomplished!

thanks, that's great! Can't wait to have some free time to experiment with AM and the theme

no problem - I've just set up similar config for myself. Works great - just rotate monitor, switch display to vertical games - and bam! ready-steady-shmup!

Have you heard of issues when exiting games where audio from multiple snaps is playing until you cycle to the next game?

from multiple... no

but from the current one - yes
It's a bug in AM - I can hear a sound from video regardless of the settings (with the sound off) - when getting back from a game. Switching the game "fix" this.
I didn't have the time to file that bug - it's confirmed for win/mac/linux. You can read about this earlier in this thread.

Thanks for the response.  Considering it was already covered earlier in this thread, I appreciate you not flaming me for having not found that information already.

This theme is awesome, but I have a litle problem with it.

I use it in all my platform, and every time I change from one platform to another, all the game info disappear, I do not know if it is theme or AM related.

How can I resolve this litle problem?

The problem happens when I go from Display Menu to any of the plataform I have.

So I solve the problem making a copy of the theme and select one to Display Menu and the other to ervery Platform, now I have everything working as it should be!

Cool - good to know. I'm planning to release a set of icons for display menu using FLAT BLUE.
Similar to the one I've presented HERE
But it's not finished yet.

Anyone know why this theme only shows white text for the rom names full screen and game video in background?

The theme seems incomplete on screen for some reason

We could release a dedicated version of this theme for RPi - with all the extra code that makes the theme auto-adapting simply removed.
But this means it has to be fixed aspect - most likely 4:3 (horizontal) and 3:4 (vertical) - but I'm not so sure that this is not a false assumption.

If you are RPi user please chime in - what's your screen aspect? Is 4:3 and 3:4 enough?
And most important - does 3:4 (vertical) screen should be "rotated 90 deg" for RPi (that means your console/desktop resolution is horizontal/normal and AM layout is displayed rotated/sideways).

Overly excited RPi user here. 3:4 CRT through ArPiCade.
Would love to see a Rpi optimized version in the future.
