Title: HyperPie2 Theme [V2 Released]
Post by: calle81 on January 08, 2018, 10:24:00 AM
HyperPie2 Themes V2

Updated again with drop  shadow and glow behind snap options. https://mega.nz/#!KF0C0SiR!WOmTzlAYqIUrkNtTeU6l8FAJQ1uBnqY7fgQj22klSWI

------------------------------------------------

Now with "ambiance" as background option thanks to zpaolo11x. Make sure you get version 2.4.1 from the Attract Mode website as well. Delete the old HP2 theme folders before extracting these folders into attract\layouts

This version also allows per display layout options meaning all layout options can be set differently for different displays. Like you probably don't want cart art for arcade based systems and so on.

There's also a background option named per display which will show a background matching the selected system in most cases.

The best way to customize your layouts is to assign a button to "Layout Options" in the AM settings. This is a new feature for AM 2.4 and pressing that button will take you directly to the layout options which now can be set independently of other displays.

Oh, and btw you can select which HP2 layout you want in the layout options now so you can replace the "toggle layout" button with "layout options" instead. The selected view is stored in the attract.am file so make sure to keep a backup of that file when you have setup AM the way you want it.

--------------------------------------------------------------

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM8xZ6CbyMiLrokOQwfWl6Q

You set the hp2-main-menu layout to the "displays menu", hp2-sub-menu to all sub menus if you have sub menus configured, hp2-arcade-menu to all arcade systems that don't have cart art and finally hp2-systems-menu to everything else. Read the startup tutorial carefully and don't forget to set a button to "Toggle layout" to switch between the different views.

You can set your screen ratio to either 16:9 or 4:3 in the display options for each theme and you can also select between PC or RPi for better timed animations depending on what hardware you run on.

This zip doesn't include  the game descriptions. You can get them here https://mega.nz/#!3MkWwbTJ!emOUuFeGLy9NosR7qk-j16JzkSOGE4Zp3xv60sIYlsQ. Drop these in your romlist folder.

Let me know if you run into any issues.

love it....and for the pi..... ;D

cant wait....thanks
Title: Re: HyperPie2 Theme [Preview]
Post by: calle81 on January 08, 2018, 01:11:30 PM
Thanks! The easiest way to get this theme will be by getting the HP2 image when it's out if you have a pi.  That way you will get all the menu flyers (made by Dwayne Hurst), the main and sub menu setup, all the new videos (by Eddy Smith), the silver ring wheels, all modules needed etc. It comes with no roms but has romlist pre-configured that follow the Hyperspin naming so it's really easy to setup. It will also have a theme downloader script, built in attract mode upgrade script and a way to switch between a flat menu structure and the main/sub/system structure. It's a really nice base to start off with.

I will of course upload the themes to github but then you will have to get a hold of all the media to make it look nice :)

Attractmode layouts/plug-ins/modules are platform independent. When people say things are for the pi, they usually mean that it’s optimized for a device that might not have the resources a normal PC has.

Yup, there will be an HPPC2 release with more systems supported. Comes with AttractMode, emulators and Rocketlauncher preconfigured with media and romlists (but no roms).

A quick demo of some box and cart art animations plus a function to swap between game description, front, and back boxart:

Love it.
Silky Theme was always my favorite (stunning work Oomek), I just wish it incorporated cover and box art. I tried implementing myself, problem being I suck at this. This is great though.

Looking forward to the release for PC!

HyperPie2 is out now for Pi and PC. I'm on vacation away from my computers and cant do much but you can grab both versions from either Project Hyperpie (Pi)  or HyperPie Expanded (for PC) on Facebook. Or if you're lazy www.arcadepunks.com

Thanks for the info and the hard work!

Personally I would have liked links to just the layouts. Here they are if anyone else wants to check them out without downloading the whole image.

There's a bunch more you need like modified modules and artwork in other directories. The github is not updated either. I will package everything up eventually but right now we are helping those who installed the complete package and my time is a bit limited :).

Added this view to the theme with marque support. (Note the flicker effect behind it ;) )

https://youtu.be/yoich27ng_4

Drop the files in the hp2-systems-menu folder. It contain to new views. One with listbox and one with a vertical wheel as demonstrated in the video. Use the toggle layout button to switch between them.

mrbison, try replacing the layout.nut in both folders with this one. Should fix the error message.  :)

The old one with  // , work better and stretch the video.

The new one "preserve_aspect_ratio" does not work.

I'm not sure what you mean. Can you describe in more detail the problem you get and maybe post a screenshot? Everything works as it should for me. Commenting out that section breaks the art load delay feature so makes no sense. Just disable art load delay in the layout options instead and it wont be used.

Edit: Sorry. Didn't see your youtube video at first. I'm not sure whats going on there. Looks as if you have changed the size of the video frame? Are you using "hp2-systems-menu" theme and the layout.nut i posted?

When you said drop the game descriptions in your romlist folder, did you mean the folders and all? Also, is this the right romlist folder? I attached a picture so you can see what I've done. Thanks.

Actually they started showing for me. :D At least in the HyperPie2 Theme, not the other themes though. Thank you!

Calle81, you're always on top of things and add the latest cool features to your HP2 layout. If there were an award for most layout options, HP2 would win it. Sometimes this can be a double edged sword, advance AM users have no problems but newer AM users might be confused or overwhelmed with all the layout.nut files and options. Maybe consider a ReadMe.txt or instructions for less advance and newer users.

P.S. I'm surprised you don't have onscreen controller navigation options... you have everything else. LOL. I'm only kidding but if you do want them, they do exist. (PM me or search older layouts on forum if you have interest)

Keep up the great work!

Agreed. I was rather overwhelmed with all of the options on this theme and a bit confused too. However, it's an amazing theme! ;D

Post by: calle81 on September 07, 2018, 12:24:34 AM
Yeah I know. Instructions are long overdue. As it is now it's a bit of a mess since this has been the theme I learned from. As soon as I want to try something new i expand the layout options available and rewriting the options (which is really needed to make it easy to use) would be a major headache. There are many nut files to edit and things that might break. I also don't want to turn this into "work". With three  kids I'm happy to have a few occasional hour when the rest of family is asleep to tinker with this stuff :)

With that said I'm glad you like the theme and I'm here to answer any questions.

Hey I couldn’t get the descriptions to work :(
Theme is great! I disabled the startup intro and noticed that it takes abit of time to startup.
What can cause the lag? I open attract more.. white screen for a few seconds then goes to main menu. With other themes it doesn’t do it, i love this theme, it’s to nice to let go.

Hi Steven, never seen or heard of a white screen problem before. Are you running PC? Which background option do you have for the main menu?

If you upgrade AM to 2.4 you need to replace the game description files. Delete all sub folders in attract/romlist and drop the contents of this zip file into the attract folder. https://mega.nz/#!2AkkAYbI!7VigZqYOb5Ab8S9mLrs6ds52gTM2Y2c9If15vA8L0Y8

Right now in the rom list folder I have the folders from your zip file...
Do I have to take them out of the folders h put them in?
Do The names of your files have to match the rom files?
Yes I’m on pc. The white screen is like - or 2 secs as it loads the intro
