Scripting / Re: music script motion blue
« on: December 17, 2019, 11:07:30 PM »
There isn't a script to edit that has options for background music volume.

It just uses the mpg123 sound player to either play music or not.  There's no config adjustment for mpg123 music player.

There are other scripts out there for RetroPie that have adjustments like that, but they have other quirks that make the whole process more tedious.

This one uses the runcommand-onstart and runcommand-onend scripts to either play or not play.  That's it.

However, I "think" you can do something like this.


Look at the and you should see this line:

(sleep 10; mpg123 -Z /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/music/*.mp3 >/dev/null 2>&1) &

I think the "-f" flag can be used to decrease the volume (but this is untested)........just found it in the help manual.

The -f flag is the scale factor and I think it controls the amplitude of the mpg123 output.

Maximum value is:  32768 set the background music to 50%, it would be:  16384

So change that line to:

(sleep 10; mpg123 -f 16384 -Z /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/music/*.mp3 >/dev/null 2>&1) &

.....then restart your Pi and see if that works.

25% volume would be:  8192

(sleep 10; mpg123 -f 8192 -Z /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/music/*.mp3 >/dev/null 2>&1) &

Perfect..  works great! Thanks David

Using David Marti's motion blue still, want to turn down the background music volume but cannot find the location of the script to edit. Anyone know the location of this file?

Hey guys... I know nothing of coding the themes, I just wanted to make non selected wheels less transparent so they can be seen better. Can someone tell me what values should be adjusted. Is it an 'alpha' value?

How is this achieved.. I tried to find something in the layout.nut file but no luck... from a robospin layout. What code is used in the nut file?
For collections this is preferred to see all the different versions of 1 game. Any help would be great..

Themes / B2B-1000 theme by hursty - Cant add favs or view filters
« on: February 04, 2018, 10:16:07 PM »
First off.. great theme by hursty, love his work. Running hyperpie and all of the b2b layouts oddly wont display filters or favorties menus. A faded list comes up of the games in the current system. Did I mess something up or has anyone else seen this. Comes up both when trying to add favorite or using filters view. Anyway this can be fixed? Pics below how it should work and the error that comes up when adding fav or filters view with hursty's b2b-1000 cabinet layouts...
