Bjose , awesome work.

Have you ever think about doing something like this:

Code: [Select]
// Load image based up emulator
local system_art = fe.add_image("system/[Emulator]", flx*0, fly*0, flw, flh );

I dont know if this can help you in some way  :)

Thanks another time , your layout is beautiful.

I could fix the delay thing, it was something related to the movement in the conveyor code, anyway i will update a recent version after i could add some more new things and improve some other details in the code

i dont think the 4.2 version have anything to do with that, it looks like more none of your emulators match the list of accepted emulators, try to rename or create one and check this list

http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1504.msg10682#msg10682

or you can just change the name in the code to match yours

im working in a default background So this doesnt happen

i have a hint :)

youre casing "MAME". my Display Name is "mame". so it was not recognized.
For those who have a black Screen look for Case Sensitive Displeyname or Change the .nut Switch case "MAME" Thing.

Well im trying to use only 3 buttons and those are:
Select = select, launch game, add/remove games, any action in general
Back = back to the last screen (in most case back to the main display screen)
Custom (any from 1 to 6) = with this you change to the mode menu, disable the main carousel and you can only move in the menu part, if you wanna leave and get back to the main carousel, press it again.

I still developing this theme (most for fun and keep practicing with squirrel and AM) but the davbrac one is more complete than this ( and it looks better too ::) )

Having a problem setting up the controls..sorry for being dumb  :-[ could you post the set up please?


Also I wanted to ask
1. would there be a way to show the controls for the game...kind of like CP wizard?  Guess it could a still snapshot of a controller with what the buttons do.

2. Any way to add the manual like on the nes mini? (there are manual pack out there :P )
3. How about changing the theme music/sounds for the different systems?

Just suggestions..yeah I know it's a lot sorry :P
People want life easy..then complain about it

To set up the control, you only need to hit the TAB button, got to controls and set/configure the next buttons

Back, Select and Custom1 (you could use 1 to 6, but only one is used)

after that go to Display, select any system that use this theme, and from there to layout option, just right there you can configure what custom button you want to use (from the previous step) to call the theme's menu (upper icons).

about the rest, well let see.

1. would there be a way to show the controls for the game...kind of like CP wizard?  <- really dunno maybe it does but need time to search about it.

2. Any way to add the manual like on the nes mini? <- you can point me to an example here so i can check it out
3. How about changing the theme music/sounds for the different systems? <- Yes i can do that, the only problem is the size with all the images, systems and now a unique music for each system it could be a problem (a very simple example, 42 systems each one with a diff music of 1mb , well 42mb only in music  :P)

ok I'll try that for the control set up thanks :)

1. would there be a way to show the controls for the game...kind of like CP wizard?  <- really dunno maybe it does but need time to search about it.

Yeah I was thinking like just a snap...In fact I think I have a bunch for mame that i made using CP wizard..I'll look into it..

Any way to add the manual like on the nes mini? <- you can point me to an example here so i can check it out

here is a video of the nes mini ui... 0:23 - 0:28
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgpBhguhGuk

Yeah it's a QR code but like I said some places have manual packs to download...

as for 3....yeah I thought about that myself :P but maybe make it an option for people to use if they want to?

like you said 42 systems..and they are trying to get dreamcast and Saturn and 3DO to run on a pi! guess you'll need a hard drive at some point.. :P
