Themes / Re: Flat Blue Theme settings & customization questions

Since I have a 15khz Arcade CRT how do I set the low res flag? Should I set my resolution for the front end manually?

Thank you

Themes / Flat Blue Theme settings & customization questions
« Last post by jtslade on Today at 01:53:31 PM »
Two quick questions.. I love the theme BTW and it looks great running Vertically in GroovyArcade 2017 on my Cocktail Cab on the 19" Electrohome G07

1: How can I get my Wheel art to show up bigger? It's scaled really small... (Can text be scaled? Can the text for Game Names on the left be scaled?)

2: I see the special set of game icons mentioned but where can I download them and on a linux install of attract mode where do they go?

Thank you.. I guess that was 3 questions.. LOL

I'll upload pics tonight if that helps..

There are now basically 2 critical issues with AttractMode. One can be worked around, the other not:

First is that it doesn't compile against FFMPEG 4 (see https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/442). This can be worked around at least.

The second issue is the one reported in this thread, wherein AttractMode just freezes (without any errors in the log/stderr) when it tries to load artwork that doesn't exist (see https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/440).

Unless the other guys commenting in this thread are familiar with FFMPEG or LIBSFML, we'll have to wait for Mickelson to reappear and have time to work on it.

Hi,

I am a retropie / attract mode noob so sorry in advance if I'm asking basic/stupid questions.

Basically I have two buttons on my arcade that I would like to use to higher and lower the volume.
I have written two bash scripts to do this using amixer but I do not know how to call these scripts from a button press in attract mode.

I've been looking online for this but to no avail, is there any chance somebody could point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance,
Kevin

FYI: I am using a zero delay encoder to connect the arcade controls up (https://www.amazon.in/Easyget-Joystick-Raspberry-Retropie-Projects/dp/B01C5J5AJO)

Is there someone who can help me? I'm not the only one!
I´m not and admin but I think this shoud be on the "emulators" section.

So... try this to see whats happening because should be 1000000000 millions diferent things.

Code: [Select]
executable           C:\AM\emu\retroarch/retroarch.exe  --verbose >> fba_log.txt 2>&1
args                 "[romfilename]" -L cores/fb_alpha_libretro.dll

Open the fba_log.txt and paste the error here if you can`t fix it.

First open the retroach.cfg and check the "cores" path , should be ":\cores"

This worked for me "RetroArch-v1.7.3-64-bit"

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1-43
#
executable           cmd
args                 /c cd "C:\AM\emu\retroarch" & start /wait retroarch -L cores\fbalpha_libretro.dll "[rompath][name].zip"
rompath              C:\AM\emu\retroarch\system\roms\

General / Re: Turning down brightness in Attractmode possible?
« Last post by qqplayer on Today at 12:08:03 PM »
Hi all

Is it possible to turn the brightness down of the Attractmode front-end itself? I'm not talking about MAME where it can be controlled with silders. I wondered if there was any option/config edit I could do that turned everything down a few notches for the preview snaps/mp4s aren't as bright across the board - without me having to turn each .png/mp4 down individually! Thanks

Not tested but , you can set for exampel F1 to increase brighness  and F2 to decrease, then, set:

Controls - Custom 1 - F1
Controls - Custom 2  - F2

Code: [Select]
function on_signal( sig )
{
switch ( sig )
{
case "up":
                   fe.signal( "custom1" );
return true;

case "down":
fe.signal( "custom2" );
return true;

}

return false;
}

fe.add_signal_handler(this, "on_signal");

Try to download attract mode latest version and then replace H:\HyperPC\Attract\modules\animate.nut file.

Hi, that removed the error message but the progress bar still don't move when I scroll through the games.
