Themes / Re: HyperPie2 Theme [V2 Released]
« on: November 19, 2018, 05:21:59 PM »
Man, this is great! Thanks so much. I have this running beautifully on my Linux PC setup.

Couple questions:

1. On your YouTube video, it shows the "Game Description" fading after a short time. This is not working on my setup. The info comes up, but never goes away and I'm not seeing a setting to change it. Maybe you know what I might be missing.
2. The "Display Menu" fades to fullscreen fine when set to "Snap" even though I'm using video themes. However, "Fade to Fullscreen" does not work at all on the Systems Theme, regardless if they are set to "Snap" or "Video Theme"

The rest is coming along nicely!

This is exactly what I have been looking for! Thanks so much for this :D

One question though....

I've been tinkering with the .nut file to adjust to my preferences, however I can not get the wheel images to preserve aspect ratio. Some are squished horizontally and I'd like them to be displayed as is.

Any thoughts?

HyperSpin themes are interpreted using the hyperspin.nut loader. You would need to modify it to get that information.

Thanks Progets.

So to be clear, you are saying that Rom info is currently not supported in AM using HyperSpin Themes without modifying the hyperspin.nut loader?

Not sure if I should start a new topic, or reply to this one :-/

Anyway, I'm curious about this as well. If we use the HyperSpin system XML with "import_extras", it correctly imports the info from the XML file into the the "romlists" TXT file when the rom list is generated. However, I see no way to get it to actually display in AM with HyperSpin themes. Anyone know the answer?

So just like that? It's really that easy? No sub-folder? Can't wait to try it when I get home. I will thank you in advance!!

Thanks Progets!

Yep, I got most of that. Like I said, everything is actually working and I'm quite impressed. I just can't figure out how the "Display Menu" displays it's wheel images. What folder should they be in so that the "Display Menu" picks them up? The "Display Menu" is pulling random wheel images from the other Displays I have setup.

To be clear, my "Displays" and wheels are working fine. It's just the "Display Menu" wheels that I'm having issues with.

Sorry for mixing AM and HS terminology here. I've tried to keep it relevant to AM this time.

Thanks for the suggestions.

So I ended up setting up everything (Ubuntu & AM) fresh and the HS themes work now. Not sure what I did different. Awesome! Very excited about this.

Now I'm trying to get the Displays Menu working for the Main Menu themes. I have the themes and art showing, except it's doing this really weird thing where it pulls wheel art from the system wheel folders. I can't figure out the pattern, or where I should put system theme wheels. They work  if you click on them and open the correct system "Display", but the wheel images obviously do not match. I know this isn't completely supported yet in AM, but I was surprised to see how close it is to working. If anyone has any pointers, I'd love to hear them.

Hi Luke,

Thanks for the reply! Yes, Linux is case sensitive. I'm sure that my games, game lists, and themes are all named correctly with the proper case. I'm basically trying ANY HyperSpin theme. I've just been trying to get the default ones to work for now. The Attract-Mode loader seems to skip right over it when I have HS themes enables and loads a blank layout. I can definitely provide screenshots or log output if anyone is interested in helping.

I did download your ISO and dug through it a bit. I was hoping to find examples of HS themes, but either I'm looking in the wrong place, or your Attact-Mode setup is only using the default layouts?

As the title suggests..... has anyone actually succeeded with Attract-Mode in Linux using HyperSpin Themes?

I'm a new user here and finally fed up with Windows & HyperSpin and ready to make the big switch over to Linux. After reading about everything I can find on the HyperSpin theme support in AM, I'm quite confident I'm setting it up correctly. I've even tried hacking the .nut files myself to get the loader to pick up the themes.

I get:

 - Loaded layout: /home/crow/.attract/layouts/HyperSpin/ (loader.nut)
 - Layout is empty, initializing with the default layout settings

This is every time I launch AM after setting HyperSpin as the layout.

I'm not a Squirrel developer, and not much of a Python one either, but I tried tracking down the global variable in these .nut files "::file_to_load" and as far as I can tell, it isn't getting set. Printing the variable results in "Index not found" or something to that effect. I'd be glad to test more, but it occurred to me, that I don't think I've seen anyone actually using HS themes in AM on Linux. Maybe I'm wrong.....????
