===================Please Take the Time to ReadBelow!!========================

Hey Everyone sorry To nuke this thread 1st Post! But I am going to be Redoing a Fewthings To make it easier for myself in the future
NXL Will now be split into Downloads To help my Awful upload speed So, by updating a small thing I wont have to reupload the entire thing. How I will be doing this is via Artwork packs
NXL will come in 2 main Verions.
NXL Theme update Only. This is ment for those who are using their own customartwork, or those or are just updating a preexisting install This is ment to be drag and dropped into the layout folder No fuss no muss
Nxl BaseInstall This is going to include everything presetup Minus Romlist and Artwork This will have rocketlauncher and the AM ingreation pack This is ment for beginners who dont know where to start
This will include all 3 versions of the theme and the screen saver Iv made.
What about the Artwork packs?

Well You download the baseinstall, and pick a artwork pack the current list of artwork packs avilable are
Cave ::
Taito Type X::
NesicaXlive::
Pc Games::
Inside Each ArtworkPack You will find a Emulator.cfg File, And a Romlist
Extract the Contents of The pack To your artwork Folder.
"../Artwork/Cave"
Then Take the Romlist open it up in Notepad++ And copy the Romlist, Then naivgate to your romlist of choice, and paste it in YOU can even use this time to remove games you dont intend on ever playing!
Once that is dont Save your Romlist and Copy the "cave".cfg File form the artwork Pack into your ../Am/Emulators/ Folder. This is what sets the path inside AM for it to scan for your artwork
Once this is setup with these 3 easy setups You have setup the frontend!, its up to you at this point to configure your prefered method to launch the game
=================================================================================
Addtional information
To unlock More features insde of of my frontend I have changed the meaning behind some of the default strings inside the romlist so when adding your own games take this into account.
#Name;Title;Emulator;CloneOf;Year;Manufacturer;Category;Players;Rotation;Control;Status;DisplayCount;DisplayType;AltRomname;AltTitle;Extra
This is the current default settings inside a AM romlist.
This is the current Strings inside ours lets check out how it differs
Yatagarasu;Yatagarasu Attack on cataclysm;Nesica;;2015;Nyu Media;Fighting;1-2;4.3;6;300000;;;Nesica;????? Attack on Cataclysm;
The [Rotation Tag] has Been changed And NXL pulls this as if it ment Game Version
The [Control] Tag Wants to know the number of buttons used 1-6 For the selected game.
The [Status] Tag Any number higher then 400000 Will make the network appear online, place a random large number here for online games, leave blank if the game has no online features
[Alt Romname] This is A system of Orgin tag this diffifers form "emulator" beacuse The emulator may be mame, but you would like the system of orgin to display something else
[AltTitle] Is being used to display japnease Text.

==================================================================================
Planned Artwork Sets:: Currently
TouHou Games.

may i ask you How did you get the side art their when the game is running? 
Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Coming Very soon]
Post by: atrfate on July 20, 2016, 12:40:29 PM
their is 2 methods for boarders, on windowed games one is bbulit into rocket launcher, this is method is only being used on games that are mame,  the method used for non-emulated games ie the Pc titles and taitotype X is a Custom loader I wrote, to resize any game thats running a window and load the bg.png file located in the game folder. I did this because alot of japanease titles either have a start up menu popup , or refuse to load correctly other wise  Rocket launcher has a bulit in feature that can do this for windows based games and you are more then welcome to use their approach

Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Coming Very soon]
Post by: atrfate on July 20, 2016, 03:50:28 PM
That would allow you to place game in a window that normally wouldnt go into a window, however i dont believe dxwd supports that feature of adding boarders and artwork

This is an example of besals in hyperlaunch

Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Coming Very soon]
Post by: ArcadeBliss on July 21, 2016, 11:37:59 AM
yes that frame was bad. I learned alot from your theme. It was cool. I have another Idea that I'll send over tonight.
Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Coming Very soon]
Post by: atrfate on July 21, 2016, 12:03:06 PM
the wheel image also is orderings the grid left to right, so if you notice theirs a bit of clipping, trying something now and I learned alot 2! i think i can fix this by adding a new wheel image that moves ontop of the existing wheel dono trying some things out!
Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Coming Very soon]
Post by: ArcadeBliss on July 21, 2016, 01:29:33 PM
Not necessary.  You can change the zorder of the current wheel when it is selected.  The currently selected wheel is indicated by the select_status var  in the myslots object.  Let me know if i should do it.

okay bliss found a bug  the flyer artwork and video dont update when not being selected so if you set it to flyer mode change game it updates, but if you go back to video it will be on a older video untill you change again
Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Coming Very soon]
Post by: ArcadeBliss on July 21, 2016, 03:39:46 PM
updated layout.nut sent per PM. regarding the flyer bug, I think I know the problem hold on.

Edit:

in the changeartwork class, change the function to this:
Code: [Select]

function set_index_offset(value)
{
foreach (i in image)
{
i.index_offset = value;
}
}

Post by: kent79 on July 22, 2016, 07:47:40 PM
Thank you very much . It is great job.

There is some advice

1. Change listentry item to  Align.Right

Code: [Select]
gridc.num_t = fe.add_text( "[ListEntry]/[ListSize]", fe.layout.width / - 1.219, fe.layout.height / 1.618, fe.layout.width, fe.layout.height / 36 )
gridc.num_t.font = "Squares Bold Free";
gridc.num_t.align = Align.Right;


2. control length of Genre

 Write a function to control Genre in specific length

        "action": [ "action","platformer", "platform" ],
        "fighting": [ "fighting" ],
        "fighting": [ "fighting", "fighter", "beat'em up" ],
        "puzzle": [ "puzzle" ],
        "racing": [ "racing", "driving" ],
        "role playing": [ "rpg", "role playing", "role-playing", "role playing game" ],
        "shooter": [ "shooter", "shmup" ],
        "sports": [ "sports", "boxing", "golf", "baseball", "football", "soccer" ],
        "strategy": [ "strategy"]

Hi

First of all, congratulations for making such a beautiful theme :D

I've just installed the frontend only to have your theme, because I was using Hyperspin until yesterday...

I've set up AM and your theme, the videos showing fine and the marquees for selecting the games works fine too

I have a couple questions...

1) The theme is asking for a logo (the logo for the system) I'm not able to find it myself... Where is it?
2) Where can I find the XML Database for NesicaXLive? (I need it because I'm using Rocketlauncher UI in conjunction with AM)
3) I plan to make AM and your frontend my default, so I'll migrate all my systems from HP to AM, so where can I find the marquees for other systems and games? (the ones at the bottom which makes the "wheel")

Hope I'm not asking too much

Thanks in advance

? i am unsure of what logo you are reffering to if you extracted it to the root of a drive all the default artwork should load
2 you dont need xmls arcadebliss made a plugin for AM to work with it
3 I made every single one of them, so their custom.

Well to start off with your running an old version of the layout id recommend you update it with the new updates of layout only or full pack

if you have downloaded and installed the rocketlauncher integration pack it lets rocketlauncher read games gamelist

EDIT: I've downloaded again and started configuration from scratch and now it shows the logo too :)

Another question is: Can I use your theme for other systems, besides Nesica?

Sirs, I need some help to understand the error that is happening with rockectlaucher and the integration plugin with AM.

I followed the installation ReadMe.mht and when I open the rocketlaucher and ask to generate the list of games for the emulator that I called capcom worked perfectly.

But another emulator that I called ArcadeClassics appears the following error:

"Error parsing databaser files, make sure the XML is well-formed."

Both are based on MAME 179 and both have their own romlets.

What can this problem be?
Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Release] new video!
Post by: atrfate on December 12, 2016, 06:07:53 PM
I dont know what read me you are referring 2,  however You dont use XML gamelist and must make a gamelist in accordance with AM. You can look around these forums to convert a hyperspin list into an AM list. but with out a proper AM romlist nothing is going to work properly.

Hi

First off awesome work, this is such a great release, there isn't really much I can think of to improve, looks absolutely amazing on my Vewlix L ;-)

I do have a few questions ..

Hopefully these make sense, I can edit the files manually but would like to do this properly, I can see this becoming my only Frontend, so would like to add Naomi, Dreamcast and Mame/Cave games ...

Thanks
Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Release] new video!
Post by: atrfate on December 13, 2016, 04:15:33 AM
1:/ Define Your own personal controls in AM like any otherfrontend Tab/config /controls
2:/3 adding and removing games/systems is done via the romlist in atttract mode. same for systems id suggest reading around the forums for a more detailed description
4:/ Publisher, Manufacture artwork is located inside the main layout folder inside AM so nesicaxlive/am/layouts/nesicaxlive/assets/publisherlogos

And 3 Contonuied
You can add any game like pc or orthersie.  keep in mind you will need at minimum a custom Grid/Wheel image to match the rest, A Logo, a Video
For extra art requirements you weill need a flyer and s snapshot.

Post by: anx10us on December 13, 2016, 04:47:51 AM
Thanks for the quick reply, sounds like i'm going in the right direction.

Another question, you mentioned in your first post about your custom loader and using the background if available for PC games ? How could I get this to work for Mame ?

Basically i'm looking at running vertical Mame games, this would usually leave black columns on the left and right, would your loader be able to add background art on either side, basically the same as the Nesica Ikaruga or Crimzon Clover releases ?

Thanks

Thank you friend.

So the romlist in the attractmode is perfect (for all the emulators I have) but in the rocketlaucher in (audit games) the list does not appear for some emulators and for others it works.

I love this theme!, i was wondering how i can use it as a "display's Menu" for use with the new display menu option, instead of using it just for launching nesica games, i tried to use it as the theme, but it doesnt pick up the menu wheel art, or snaps. or anything for that matter. any idea how i can edit it to do so?  I'd like all my system icons on the wheel, and system previews mp4's in the video section from "attract\menu-art".  maybe even the system logo in the corner. then have it go to the system instead of trying to launch the game

Hello everyone, first of all thank you very much for making this front end public, second,
after I have set it up and checked how the code works I've noticed the amount of effort you put on it, it's definitely impressive, just brilliant, congrats guys... you rock!!

I have a little question since I'm trying to customize some little details like the network icon position, etc... and I'm stuck on one specific thing (it's literally driving me crazy cause I don't get the logic behind..)...

I'm trying to change the height position of the English game title placed on the top of the screen but nothing moves when I edit the parameter in the layout.nut file... I'm able to resize it and replace the font to recognize Japanese characters but when I try to move it down it's stuck on the top of the screen, can you help me please to figure out why and which value I should add to move it vertically?

Thanx in advance and congrats again for the massive work you have done!

Try set CONTROLS like this:

works for me.

Hi Friends Happy New Year

I am new here and first time writing.

I am user of HS and RL for few years.

Recently I have added Nesica system and love this theme thank you so much .
What I did was launching this theme via HS wheel that is pretty awesome instead of rolling the wheels for this system.

Now I am having some difficulties to set this up.
I am trying to launch Nesica games by RocketLauncher with Nesicaxlive AM frontend , but when I select the game and launch , RL will startup and not the game.
What am I doing wrong? I have already set plugins but I believe latest RL are build in plugins for AM.

Below are my settings

and do I need rename this args -s "NesicaXlive" -r ? or change back to emulator?
because inside my rocketlauncher was named "NesicaXlive"?


-------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry below mention what does it mean
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Extract the Exclusiveness folder to your /layouts folder
Extract the modules folder to your /Atrractmode folder.

Because I can see the same folders already exist in Nesica folder
Do I need to replace or something?

------------------------------------------------------------------------
end result you get all of the information about a game updating in real time

How will the game update in real time sorry I dont get it?

With this your up should move up, down down, left be left, and right be right.

PC Launcher Module is the one I am using and settings are the same as taito type x games. I can run the nesica games with Hyperspin frontend via RL but cannot with AM via RL. Maybe somewhere is the problem.

Post by: shitoken on January 19, 2017, 08:30:25 PM
Since I am using Attract mode & Rocket launcher

Could it be the game database provided with AM package does not match the one that I have Nesica official database in Rocket launcher?

Rocketlauncher without proper game database,  it is not possible to set the modules.
Please advise
 

Title: Re: Nesica X live theme! [Release] new video!
Post by: shitoken on January 23, 2017, 10:54:58 PM
If I want to rename the AM theme of nesica to follow proper game database name ,  which folders &  files I need to rename , wheels and what else?


I know RocketLauncher cannot read and run games, if use Nesica theme database created here.
It wont work without adding per game in pclauncher.ini module.

By all means we need a proper database which will match all the artworks and which will enable us to setup rocketlauncher properly.

What about other members here how you get it working with Rocketlauncher?

Rocket-launcher works properly with the database given I should also mention this is a theme rocketlaunher issues are not mine to solve. however using this setup rocket-launcher works correctly, so your doing something wrong on your end.

Hi thank you for the video.
Exactly my settings are same in ini as per yours.
Did you add the games in ini manually or thru the rocket launcher?
If thru the rockerlauncher you will need the database of games right?
if thats the case where did you put the database file?

Okay boys big update today! 2-1-2017

This is a full Artwork Asset Update, And A theme updated to add a few new features and polish

Artwork Database has been pruned and all games wheel images that where below my quality standered have been replaced every game now has a fully unique and different wheel images for all clones and masters of games, this includes nesica and ttx versions got alot of touchups

New features
Added a Rss animation Box to simulate the Real Nesica a bit Telling you to go to the manufacture website, I saw this in a mod of my UI linked the concept and fixed it Thanks dek77 for typing out all the moonrocks ;)

Nesys Romlist Support
Games will now display if they uses nesys server or not, by showing online or offline network images, this is helpful to quickly see what games might have networked locked content. To enable this feature on games use the status-flag in the romlist iv included game ids in the romlist for a while so this should already be setup even for updaters but if it isnt.
Raiden III;Raiden III;Nesica;;2012;Taito;Shmup;1-2;1.02;2;401400;;;Nesica;??III;

These 2 small features have been added to the 3 main variants HD SD and Vertical.

Below is a Full MegaDownload Archive With the following
https://mega.nz/#F!toZ1VbxY!Lu4VJbSL0pfUhkv-wJSEow

NXL Complete Theme install - This package includes everything and should be for those who are doing a clean install only. keep note if using this you do not need the rest

NXL Theme Only
SD.HD,Vertical -- This package contains the updated theme files, if you already have this setup pick the version you use download and extract to your layout folder to complete the update

TTX NXL Artwork only no videos -- This contains all the new artwork assets made For the extra bit of polish extract these to the correct artwork folders

Post by: shitoken on February 03, 2017, 09:36:52 AM
Finally I got it working with Rocket Launcher.
Now only problem left is when I test one game via attract.exe, after first time exit I want to switch to 2nd game attract.exe does not respond at all. I need completely force close it before I can launch another game.
I have notice the cmd window popups after exiting the game and that might be the reason causing losing of function with attractmode. Please help me to solve thank you so much

Upgraded to the new package , thank you for your efforts.

May I know if some wheels name have been changed for causing this?

No names have been changed, the package hasn't been extracted to the correct location Your entire setup should be on the root of a drive c:/ D:/ ect
I Also dont know what version you are updating form, but once the nesica games got posted online I had to add a way to support them and the old ttx names of the same name.to do this the artwork folders where split into Nesica and TTX. so run the new romlist thats also at the bottem of the the mega folder. In rocketlauncher you still define games by the PC model the nesica and ttx split is only done via AM to display different artworks for both. These 3 setupfiles are in Emulators /ttx and nesica.



To the guy asking bout pi support its a theme it will run on any OS AM supports. however this package is ment for windows . but that wouldnt stop this theme form running on any os

Added more manufactures to the list
Added More images For system PC, and Mame.
Fixed a few display positional placements

Made a BRAND NEW set of artwork and romlist for Cave games!
Packed up all the old PC titles into their own Romlist aswell!

Split Artwork packs form the theme, To save on upload space, for those that dont know i rock about 50 KPS upload So updates kill me under this new system Only the 300mb theme files should have to be edited. artwork packs and such will only be added as that group is changed

Hi Bro,

How about the games must put into the fold of games or I can use different directory?
Another problem I have notice is once we exit the game and back to AM , it does not go back to full screen resolution instead it remain as per the game , therefore one side of AM become hidden

You can load any system its just a matter of artwork, mame works fairly well due to maquees working as wheel images.

You can place your games where ever you like and define, by the pc game moduel inside rocketlauncher

and to answer 2:

Depends on the game really, some games do break resolution others do not their is 3 Solutions To fixing this issue that i know off the top of my head.

1st Solution is to turn on Res Fix inside AMs default plugins this will force AM to redraw everytime you load any game this can be annoying for some since not all games break res and this is gobal

2nd Method, Force the game to run in native resolution so a Res change never happens, this can be tricky to do as you need custom dlls to enforce some games to do what you like and it can be a pain

3rd Method Use Resfix Inside rocket-launcher as a post game application Rocketlauncher has the ability to run applications after a game is no longer active you can then turn on the res fix feature to fix and restore resolution


Personally I use method 2and 3 for those I cannot use method 2 on, however for you with out knowing ahk or knowledge of other things using method 1 is prolly the easist

i personally dislike when res changes happen, as it makes my moniter show the no signal for a second, so my own personal method is to force all games into a window and then i made a scirpt to resize them to native res :D so i did quite a bit more

but really its personal preference

Since you know how to do it is easy for you for me is like a hell haha.

Recently I have started to rename the Hyperspin NesicaXLive.XML to match the game titles as your romlist, because I am using my default RL and not the one in your pack reason is I was facing some problems in fail of launching some of the games. With messages like you have not set the game in your RL. Once I renamed few games in the Hyperspin XML the games launches fine. But I have to go thru 1 by 1 to rename / I checked your old posts that RL does not need Hyperspin Nesica XML if is using AM rom list. But I cant see anything in RL under games. Plugins are all set.

So my question is what I am doing above to rename XML is right path? Because I doubt RL will not read the romlist if is not in the AM Folder ?

You dont use your own rocket-launcher
You can have 2 instances of it at different locations if you are using muliple Fe's its hard to setup a single one correctly, because rocket-launcher needs its own plugin to work wih AM/hyper-spin ect

this is why you are better off just having 2 locations for RL the one provided is able to properly read AM romlist. this is also the only way to get the fully functional loading screen game logo image working.

however with everything their are options.

You can use

http://www.convertcsv.com/csv-to-xml.htm

To convert my Romlist into a hyperspin romlist. quickly on mass you just need to setup a template to do so.
Code: [Select]
<game name="{f1}" index="" image="">
<description>{f2}</description>
<cloneof></cloneof>
<crc>{f11}</crc>
<manufacturer>{f6}</manufacturer>
<year>{f5}</year>
<genre>{f7}</genre>
<rating></rating>
<enabled>Yes</enabled>
</game>
Should give you This

Code: [Select]
<game name="3D Cosplay Mahjong" index="" image="">
<description>3D Cosplay Mahjong</description>
<cloneof></cloneof>
<crc>401300</crc>
<manufacturer>TechArts</manufacturer>
<year>2014</year>
<genre>Mahjong</genre>
<rating></rating>
<enabled>Yes</enabled>
</game>
<game name="Akai Katana Shin" index="" image="">
<description>Akai Katana Shin</description>
<cloneof></cloneof>
<crc>302201</crc>
<manufacturer>Cave</manufacturer>
<year>2012</year>
<genre>Shmup</genre>
<rating></rating>
<enabled>Yes</enabled>
</game>


Keep in mind while do this you lose any ability to display real time information that only AM supports inside Rocketlauncher these include displaying logos during loading play count japnease title text number of buttons used in game Ect only during loading of course

But alias you can use this template to convert any of my AM list to Hyper-spin list.

 :)Huge thanks to you bro, good to learn more about AM.
I got it all working by converting to HS XML, but I will also the alternative way you mentioned above to use RL provided for less headaches. ;D

Why I am importing frontend to use with Hyperspin for some systems instead of using hyperspin themes because it has the feel of real cabinet from japan with creative designers sitting in this forum.

Hi, please could somebody help me get this frontend and Nesica to actually play games? I followed the advice and downloaded the files from this video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFXUiSho9qE

But nothing was set up properly and I found Rocketlauncer seemed to be fighting against me and I was left in a blubbering mess  :(

I'm by no means a newcomer to emulation, and would really like to give the Nesica games a good play, but am completely lost as towards what I need to get and do for this to happen.

Unfortunately I cannot provide you with assistance is running what you are asking for,

Funny Enough This theme was made months before those games where released, It was kinda like Xmas day for me when I saw them that being said,
For games that are classified as Pc - Titles.

You can either natively load the pc title form command-line with Attract mode directly.
Or you can use rocket-launcher to launch pc titles/Emulators.

their are plenty of videos on you-tube explaining how to launch games with rocketlauncher.

Hi Artfate

Finally all the work is done and thanks for your theme, hope that you will release your update soon.

Here is how my hyperspin and attractmode work together like husband & wife

Looks Awesome! It dose appear that some of the fonts are missing tho, you can find them in the fonts part of the layout. once you install them it should fix all your text placement issue.

Try enabling the ResFix plugin in AM. That might help.

Hey there! I absolutely love that theme. Actually built an arcade box based on that and it looks amazing.
I do have a major issue though - it looks like AM keeps running in the background hogging CPU usage after I launch games. I don't get that issue with other AM themes. Could you please advise?

With NxL theme:

not sure, Iv never had that issue, so i am going to guess its due to AttactMode thinking its still the focus window and your game isnt taking full control of the focus window
id try if using rocket-launcher playing with fade title and setting that for games that do weird things like that

Hey atrfate, thanks for your reply.

I fiddled around with all the fade, pre-launch and whatnot options I could think of in RLUI but no dice. Even the 'Suspend Frontend' option in RLUI main settings doesn't fix the issue.

I feel I should stress that simply going to Configure > Displays > Nesica UI > Layout and choosing another layout fixes the issue. It only occurs when NXL HD / SD / Vertical is selected, so I guess my RLUI settings are correct?

For the record:
- I tested this on two different setups (my arcade box, Q4400 with 8 Gb RAM and my desktop, i5-4460 @3.20 GHz with 16 Gb RAM, both Win10 64 bits) -> Repro each time.
- I redownloaded AM NXL from scratch and manually reconfigured RLUI -> Repro.
- I tried a variety of games: Nesica, doujin games, Steam -> Repro each time. I haven't tried another emulator than PCLauncher though.

CPU usage also shoots up when AM regains focus (up to 80% on my i5), although I'd venture it has more to do with AM using software video decoding.

Hi atrfate,

I bypassed RLUI/PCLauncher by using this very simple windows_games.cfg to launch a game directly, and still got the same issue. So it doesn't appear to be related to RLUI after all.

Hello
? made like this.
Games are starting with this method but the attractmode is still working at the backround, and you can hear the music of the Snap Videos.
I mean normally when you enter the game attractmode menu is paused and you only can play the game. But with this method, it is still working backround. there will be 2 sounds. Game sound and menu sound.
What should i do ?

Thanks so much for this theme -- it's just wonderful.

I'm not sure if it's still being supported, but just wanted to see if there was a depository of art anywhere for the wheel in this theme (other than the excellent Cave and Taito ones linked to in the first post)?

I want to add a bunch of other Japanese shmups to my build, and would rather not have to photoshop the art from scratch for each of them if at all possible!

Secondly, I'm using the NXL Theme only, as I don't want to use Rocketlauncher. The theme is indeed drag and drop, but it's not pulling in the game logos as it should. Do I need to correct a path, or do something else to fix this?
Title: Re: NxL theme! [Release] new video!2-4-2017 Update

Ended up using marquees for the wheel. Might go in and photoshop borders around the images at some point, so they are consistent withy the ones atrfate has provided.

One quick question, that I would be super grateful if someone/ anyone could help me with. I have an issue whereby the selected game ins the wheel shunts the image to the left for some reason. Also, the pulsing effect that is supposed to be around the selection box isn't working either. Image below to show what I mean. Any ideas what might be causing this and how I might be able to fix it?

Apologies for resurrecting this reply from a long time ago, did you ever make any progress ?

I'm fairly sure I know what the problem is, I just don't know how to fix it ...

I've been using the fantastic theme from artfate for at least 18 months, finally moved to the Sega Pras theme for Nesica Live and all has been working. I started to have issues where the loaded game would have poor performance when started, eventually I traced this to GameLoaderALLRH.

My understanding is that the Frontend works like

Attractmode --> Rocketlauncher --> GameloaderALLRH --> ArcadePC game (usually game.exe)

What I found is that at some point attractmode no longer suspends and continues to run in the background causing the fps issues, my conclusion is that there was a change in gameloader that made this.

gameloader works as a wrapper, originally called gl.exe and more recently changed to srtgl.exe. This whole obsfucated wrapper for gameloader is I believe causing attractmode to continue..

What I have found is that if I switch theme to something else the problem goes away.

So in conclusion, an incompatibility between the latest versions of GameLoaderALLRH and the Nesica theme causes attractmode to continue to run in the background, causing fps issues.

Any thoughts ? I've tried appwaitexe, fade title, suspend Frontend etc .. to no avail ...

every game loads with out game-loader, no idea why anyone would add yet another process to game launch.

My recommendation is to have rocket-launcher close AM Each time it loads a game, and reopen it when the game is no longer active.

This looks great! However, I do have a few questions about this theme.

1: Does it have icons or artwork for steering wheels? I have a Logitech G29 steering wheel, and I'm afraid that the control icons will still be joysticks and buttons.
2: How exactly does the rectangular icon art for each game work? I'm asking because I'm afraid that some of my more obscure games I have may not have any identifying icons that can fit in this theme.
