Themes / layout dilima
« on: February 08, 2019, 08:40:21 AM »
i made my own layout with ambuilder about 6 months ago and it worked beautifully until the other day. my lastrun.text says it cant find the aspect ratio and attract crashes.

any ideas?

actually all custom layouts eventually do this. when i switch it to a layout that was with attract like cools it works fine.

whats baffling is , is that it WORKS fine for like 6 MONTHS or so THEN decides to start crashing...

any feedback would be MOST APPRECIATED!

i can scrape arcade games but getting other platforms is when it stops but like you said other times it works. ive been telling people on here this but no one believes me. glad someone else gets results and im not just a nut job... :o

i love this theme... i got it on my 2 player and it works well and looks BEAUTIFUL!!!

you do good work bro! keep it up!

look take this how you want but most  of you guys do so much CRAP to attract mode when (for the hundredth time) IT DOES NOT NEED HELP ! i have windows 7 shelled to attract mode , mame , daphne , and a couple nes snes emus and mine works FLAWLESSLY!

you DONT need rocket launcher you DONT need a million scripts or any OTHER fancy crap to make this work. on my main 4 player cab witch is in my profile pic has 2 screens one for marquee and a big one for games and i have NO issues.(except for the once in a while windows crap)

and most of all my installs are stock from this website and mame (except for the nonag exe for mame. that i got grom gameex's website)

but you know....

im just trying to be helpful and hope people get there stuff working as good as mine.....
(and i also get that platforms are different but my point is attract mode WORKS without help and my cab is proof of that)

game on brothers and sisters and never forget the 80's!!

I'm not having a problem with scraping. I just did over 400 games just like 3 days ago.

What happens if you try to scrape today? I have tested many different ways and none of them work. There is no question that made changes, it's documented.

worked just fine... only error i got was got a platform error but it still scraped my stuff..... but it still scraped my wheel art. i even filmed it with todays date.
so i dont understand how many people on here are having major issues and im not. the only issue i have is im using windows 7 and i dont want windows. but thats for a different thread...

i use the prebuilt with no issues

Can I ask which version do you use and where you get it?
Do you compile it yourself from GitHub, main website or daily build? And on which OS?


i get it from here.. my main 4 way cab has 2.3 and my upright 2 player has 2.5.1

lol and i aint got a clue as how to compile. but ya i get it from the download page

personally i would switch to mame64 with nonag ive had LOTS of problems with the ui versions.(but thats just me)
ive built 3 cabs and use the exact same atrract and mame and daphne nes snes atari2600 files and mine work FLAWLESSLY.


this fix only pro longed the sleep mode or what ever... in stead of 10 min i got 3 hours but it STILL went to sleep....
ok back to the drawing board.....
