Themes / Sub Basic Horizontal Arcade Theme
« on: January 13, 2018, 03:12:53 AM »
Here is a sub basic theme for horizontal arcade cabinets.
I just took Attract Mode's basic theme and made some tweaks to simplify it even more for arcade machines.
If you like super simple stoopid, then this is for you.

Where do you turn on or off the clone filter?

Wouldn't it be a great idea that Attract Mode could generate it's own romlists?
Has anyone tried this with mame183?

Sorry folks but I've given up on Attractmode and I've used it for a long time now.
But, If I can't get it to generate romlists with the proper names of the roms it really is of no good.
I know everyone swears it works,,,, but...
Has anyone tried it on mame183?
In other words, does it generate romlists with a clean install of mame183?

Did something change in Mame or Attractmode that has made making romlists so difficult?


Can anyone please explain to me like I'm a 7 year old, step by step a nice and easy way to generate a romlist that I can use for Attractmode that uses the real names of the roms and not the names?

I can't imagine that I'm the only one having problems?

Did it, seemed to work and this is the message at the end....

 ! No XML output found, command: C:/mame/mame64.exe -listxml
 - Removing any duplicate entries...
 + Writing 11412 entries to: c:\AttractMode\romlists/mame1.txt

Now what?

Thanks for your patience.
I'll give this a try today when I get home.
It's very much appreciated.

Thanks for the help but I'm completely not getting this.
What I need the simplist way to make a romlist for attractmode.
The advice above is probably great for someone with more brains than me, but it needs to be really dumbed down for me.
I can't imagine that there is not an easier (default) way to make a romlist?
I know I've run Attractmode before and have done it, but I can't for whatever reason get it done this time.
Can the romlist be generated by mame?
Thanks again for all the help.

I hope someone can help generating a romlist for Mame in Attractmode.
I can't seem to get it to work.
At one point I got the name of the roms to show up, but not the correct game names.

In short, could someone please walk me through the settings in Attractmode for mame to generate the correct romlist and names, please.

Thanks in advance.

Try changing the setting from fill or full screen to windowed mode with no borders.
Worked for me.

No Nag versions of Mame usually posted here;

and here;

But now, in plugins, you can turn off Nags and turn on Hiscore saving in regular Mame.
