I kept the theme zipped, it would not run otherwise
I've heard that before - maybe it has something with the file structure (having subfolders)

Same here. Unzipped it doesn't work with either AM 2.2.0-3 or 2.2.1-50. Output from the latter:

Code: [Select]

In zipped form it works fine.

Another matter:

How do I point the theme to my icons folder for icons instead of snaps in the sidebar? I tried to set an artwork folder names "icons" to the icons folder, but it didn't work.

It's mentioned in this thread that there is a issue with the unzipped layout on the Pi.

Maybe ask nicely and the author of theme will give you a better version for the Pi. I have seen it and it works unzipped and overall much better on the Pi.

We've prepared a FLAT BLUE version more optimized towards RPI - but somehow stuck (sucked by real life syndrome) on testing phase of final version   :-[
I'll get back to this next week, check if everything is ok, add MAMu icons (see here - https://www.facebook.com/ONYXarcade/videos/715834175258770/) - and release it

[options] emulators > mame > add artwork

Artwork label    Icons
Artwork Path     path_to_your _icon_folder

---

And then in theme settings switch
Menu artwork.  [Icon]

---

And that's it

Alas, it doesn't work for me. My emulators/mame.cfg:

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1-50
#
executable           $HOME/bin/mame64
args                 -video bgfx [name]
rompath              $HOME/mame/roms
romext               .zip;.7z;<DIR>
system               Arcade
import_extras        $HOME/mame/mame.xml;$HOME/mame/catver.ini
exit_hotkey          Escape
artwork    flyer           $HOME/mame/cabinets;$HOME/mame/flyers
artwork    icons           $HOME/mame/icons
artwork    marquee         $HOME/mame/marquees
artwork    snap            $HOME/mame/snap;$HOME/mame/videosnaps
artwork    wheel           $HOME/mame/wheel-missing;$HOME/mame/wheel

The flat_blue portion of my attract.cfg:

Code: [Select]
layout_config flat_blue
param                crt_shader Disabled
param                game_info_1 Year
param                game_info_2 Manufacturer
param                layout_rotation None
param                menu_art_type Icon
param                menu_video Disabled
param                scanline_strength Weakest
param                shadow_strength Medium
param                show_wheel Enabled

My icons are in .ico format. Which file formats are supported?

edit: There is an error about a missing "panels" index. I don't think that it is connected to the icons problem, but here it is nonetheless:

Code: [Select]
AN ERROR HAS OCCURED [the index 'panels' does not exist]

CALLSTACK

JPG or PNG

I have no clue about the errors - but I can see that you are using zip theme. If it's on RPi I would wait for RPi optimized version. If not please use the theme unzipped - it's much faster this way.

I found the error: The artwork path has to be named "icon", not "icons".

I converted my icons from ico to png and it works now. Thanks!

edit: I mistook your "---" for a signature divider and thus overlooked your second reply. :)

I would use the unzipped version – if it worked on my system (Kubuntu Linux 14.04). See my reply above.

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

Hi there,

I tried following the steps above to have both a horizontal and a vertical display, but I can't get it to work. I have two rom lists, one with horizontal, the other one with vertical games. But when I go into LAYOUT OPTIONS and change the LAYOUT ROTATION, the layout is rotated for all displays, not just one. There just seems to be a global setting, not a rotation setting on a per display basis. I don't know maybe I am missing something? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Yes, Attract Mode stores the layout settings based on the layouts in the "layouts" folder, not for the displays that use them. You can see that in the attact.cfg.
  • Make a copy of your flat_blue layout, e.g. to "flat_blue_vertical".
  • In the Layout Options of your vertical display, set the "Layout" field to the copy.
  • Now you can choose different settings for both.

Just curious if there has been any updates on the Pi version?
