I really absolutely cannot figure out why it's not working very well for you.
CPU usage for me hovers around the 30% margin. And no strange images like that.

I've updated the Git version, made it output a bunch of shit to the terminal, and also added in a heap of one-time switches to prevent the update call form creating extra objects and doing unnecessary calculations. It even *feels* a heck of a lot more snappier now. But that could also be the placebo effect  :o

My only suggestion is for you to try with a second AM set-up from scratch.
Also: What version AM? I test with both Git version and last release.

my AM version is 1.5.2

I will try clean install of everything from scratch next week - because of the other bug/crash that I want to test.
But the thing is that with FLAT BLUE layout everything was working around version 2.x (at least that mirror thing) and got broken with version 3.0 - and I didn't changed anything.

So yes - I'll try a clean setup as well as installing it on my other mac with different OS X version.
I'm hoping that there is something wrong with my setup and I can fix it with clean install. Otherwise I'll have no choice but to stop using AM and find other FE that is working on my computer.  :'(

Ah, see I'm using v1.5.3. Please upgrade before you do too much else. :)

I was told that 1.5.3 is windows only for fixing multimonitor bug.

I've tested with v1.5.2 as well, works perfect for me. (Linux only).

Maybe you can email me your AM configs so i can have a look and see if something else may be causing it. (And also, the new terminal output.)

Edit: Can you try removing the attract.am file, and removing the "flat_blue" settings section from attract.cfg.
I've only just started reading the AM source seriously, so I'm not sure this will achieve much. Looks like AM just overwrites the config section. But I'm not so sure about the attract.am which is the last saved state file.

Thanks. But I think I'll start with clean AM install on clean system install - this way we can for sure eliminate any problems or conflicts with installed software, etc.
I have a clean system install copy, so it won't be that time consuming - an with OS X I can run it from external HDD without touching my current system install - so it is pretty convenient. And I can test that external HDD install with different macs - so I can additionally rule out hardware incompatibility.

If that won't work - than we can see if there is anything wrong with my (or OS X) AM config.

Hey guys.. busy with some other stuff for the next week or so but just gave this a shot.

Mine is upside down and it's only taking up a quarter (top/left) of the screen. When I move up/down, I get a fullscreen snap (also upside down) that covers the whole screen - perhaps I don't have my artwork setup properly for it. Actually it looks like both are flipped vertically and horizontally..

Here's the output:

Thanks liquid8d.

Bit worried about that opengl context error. Honestly this is a head scratcher for me. I'm going to start a windows VM and see if I can replicate the behaviour.

Works absolutely flawless in Linux.


--Starting to suspect Surfaces. Seems this only happened to you guys after I switched from rendering everything directly to the window, to rendering objects to their own surfaces.
May need to call in Raygun, I don't know my way around the code base very well, so can't pin-point the difference between the Linux build and OSX/Winblows.

FLAT BLUE theme development is back on track!

FLAT BLUE theme development is back on track!

We started this theme with my mockup graphics and Luke Nukem code. But since Luke can't find the time to finish the project - it's time for  re-boot.

---

This time chrisvg is doing all the hard work with theme coding - from scratch.

This theme will be:
- truly aspect aware
- working on horizontal screens
- working on vertical screens

Vertical screen support will be universal - it will work with systems set up for vertical screen and with normal (horizontal) setups with screen just rotated 90 or 270 deg.

---

We have a working prototype. You can see the preview video of a FLAT BLUE theme working on Blast City arcade cab - HERE

GIMME!  ;D

Excited to hear its back on track. This is such a beautiful layout, I was bummed there wasn't word of progress. Can't wait to get my grubby paws on it! This thing is destined for my NeoGeo (provided you can change the color of the background *hint*). If not, It's going in my Capcom cabinet. So either way, so pumped! THANK YOU!

Sure you can change the color - it's just a bunch of PNG files so you can replace them with red ones.
And that blue gridline background you can replace with red-white stripes from NEO GEO.

You should thank chrisvg - because the underlying code is his EXCELLENT work. It wouldn't be possible without him.
