General / Bluetooth Keyboard not usable in menu
« Last post by factoid on Yesterday at 11:46:12 PM »
I have a small bluetooth keyboard that is paired directly to my Pi3, not using any sort of bluetooth dongle.  In retrospect I wish I had gotten one that was RF and used a dedicated pre-paired dongle because those are just USB keyboards as far as the hardware it's connected to is concerned.

I have attract mode set up and working pretty much how I want it now.  It's set up to be pretty much 100% operated with a 360 wireless controller, and that works no problem.  But they keyboard simply isn't recognized within the attractmode menu at all.

Nothing I do seems to register a key press. 

Up, Down, Left and Right are all configured in controls as defaults, but the arrow keys on my keyboard do nothing.

If I use my controller to map new controls, no button on my keyboard registers as having been pressed, so it just sits there waiting for me to press a button, as if I hadn't done anything at all.

But as soon as I go into something like retroarch, MAME, the retropie setup menu, my keyboard works just fine there.  I can type, I can map keys in retroarch, etc.  Super weird.

Anyone know how I can get it to work in AttractMode?

I'm going to be cloning this setup for use in a cabinet where the controls are an x-arcade tankstick, which emulates keyboard presses, so I'll need the menu to operate via keyboard eventually.

Otherwise I'm really digging attract mode. The wheels and video snaps, along with the customizeable filters solve the problems inherent with having thousands of ROMs on a system.  You can actually navigate it and find something to play this way.

Wow. This is a great shot.

You may refer as below app. I love the design structure & animation effect. I think it is also good for frontend theme. Left hand side shows system selection image or text. And right hand side shows a list of game's boxart or flyer.  ;)

Hello world! I'm trying to run this layout in my raspberry pi 3, and I have this result, Do you have any idea ?

Did you ever get this sorted, I'm having the exact same issue.  Can't move the selected item, with black/white screen.  Tried generating new romlist, redownloading the layout, etc.  No luck :(

Scripting / Re: Scale Animation issue
« Last post by liquid8d on October 21, 2017, 10:45:07 PM »
Hey kent,

Yes, that is an  unfortunate bug. It looks like it's getting incorrect position information when the new animation starts before the previous finishes. The way I implemented scaling was kinda hacky - so it was bound to show some issues. It may be possible to update some of the animations values when a new one starts to correct it, but I'd have to dig deeper with the code.

Scripting / Re: WIP Layout Builder

I am, but I have not forgotten! :P

Since I have the basic functionality working, I haven't put much time into it. I do need to get back to correct some of the issues I have listed in there, but I've held off since I'm working on a separate module that will simplify the conversion process to a .nut file. But feel free to add to the issues.

I still want to complete a new animation module and get that integrated, as well as add some additional objects. A lot of that rides on me getting this other module working.

One more thing request -" continuous scrolling image". It is ok in Grip Pro theme currently, but not running smoothly. I want someone can fix it. May be create a new module.  :)

Are the two images not following each other smoothly? maybe the two images being on separate animation causing issue? If so, you could try the following:

Create an image.
Duplicate it.
Create a surface twice the width of viewable width and place both images on surface to cover area.
Animate surface to slide only half width and loop.

If it's a different issue, try and explain?

No, it does not related of "following each other" issue. Please see as below video.

1. When I don't press any button,  scrolling is running fine
2. When I press direction button, you may see appear "frame drop"
3  When I long press direction right button, "frame drop" is  obvious

Actually, I don't know reason. But I think it is current handle signal issue. When I press direction button, it will triggle all animation process (including BG scrolling).

The ideal BG scrolling modules should be load in cache and then running on BG. It will not be affected by any input.

Sorry, my English doesn't good enough. Hope you can understand.
