Scripting / Re: KeyboardSearch module
« on: September 11, 2018, 06:54:57 AM »
I'm going to request that you add the CAPS key to the keyboard-search.

I explain my need:

I have several consoles:

Sega Genesis

If I use keyboard-search entering nes, it only returns Sega Genesis, when it should also return NES and SNES.

It does not, because the search is "Title contains [Nn]es", and I need "Title contains [Nn]es or NES". (Is only one example, sorry.)

So I would appreciate it if you enabled the CAPS key, or you could give me some solution to my problem.

Thanks you for your work.

iorampage. Theme for Attract-Mode 4:3.

Yesterday I was bored and I started to make this layout with an aesthetic based on the game Rampage.

It is a simple theme for any system. (The most sympathetic of the theme is to see George going up and down the list pointing to the games.)

It works in any screen resolution, but is designed to work --and it does better-- in a resolution of 4:3 (640x480, 800x600, 1024x768 ...).

You only have the option to put the logo or the text of the system (or none), a couple of options for the search (you do not need a keyboard, it is the keyboard search by lidquid8d), another to choose if the game information is shown or not and the last one to put, or not, the exploration lines simulating a CRT on the screen of the videos of the games.

Here you can see it:

Since I do not have any 4:3 monitor, I had to put in AM a resolution of 1024x768, so it plays in the upper left corner of my HD monitor, and then cut with ffmpeg to remove the black areas left over. Therefore, when activating or deactivating the layout options, they do not appear correctly in the video.

It works perfectly for me on lubuntu 16.04 on a samsung laptop with intel atom n270 and 2gb ram.

I use Attract-Mode + Retroarch.

I do not usually like that kind of distros (puppy, etc.) because they are not persistent.

Wikipedia definition: "Persistence – in computer science refers to the characteristic of data that outlives the execution of the program that created it. Without this capability, data only exists in RAM, and will be lost when the memory loses power, such as on computer shutdown."

To do it diagonally, you would need more parameters, x, y of origin e x, of destination, and that is not contemplated. I do not know if it can be done, but I do not think so, since you can not draw a diagonal line either.  :-\

Update 09/01/2018:

The number of background videos is increased to 16.
The graphic files of the backgrounds are removed. They are changed by color schemes, increasing to 16 options.

What is the difference between this code:

Code: [Select]
::fe.add_transition_callback(this, "on_transition");
and this one:

Code: [Select]
fe.add_transition_callback(this, "on_transition");

You do not need any special player, it only plays with the squirrel's own code and of course you can play videos, you just have to modify the batch to find them. But it is a subject that I have not considered yet.

In batch, I would know how to look inside attract.cfg, but in squirrel I have never tried it. But if you have something to base yourself on, I could try.

Is there a function in AM that returns the language that is selected in attract.cfg?

Something similar to this:
Code: [Select]
local my_lang = what_lang();

Thanks in advance...  :-[

Does anyone tell me anything?
