Currently hyperspin themes do not work properly in AM. This may change in the future but in the meanwhile you can use this theme to have a hyperspin like experience:

Yes of course but you should point your emulator config file - the emulator you use for running the games - to the snap folder.
It should look like this:

artwork    themes          YOUR PATH/attract/menu-art/mame/snap

As I mentioned, I use mame to run my arcade games so my mame.cfg file (in attract\emulators folder) looks like this:

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1
executable           E:/Arcade/Attract/apps/Mame/mame64nonag.exe
args                 [name]
rompath              E:/Arcade/Attract/apps/Mame/roms
romext               .zip;.chd
system               Arcade
info_source          listxml
exit_hotkey          Escape
artwork    flyer           $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/flyer
artwork    marquee         $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/marquee
artwork    snap            $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/videos
artwork    themes          $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/themes  <- REPLACE THIS WITH WHERE YOU WANT THE THEME TO LOOK FOR THE FILES
artwork    wheel           $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/wheel
artwork    boxart          $PROGDIR/menu-art/mame/boxart

'$PROGDIR' just tells attractmode to look for the folder where attractmode is located (like "C:\My Arcade\attract...")

Tell me if it works.

Hi I like your theme, I downloaded both packages, but I don't understand one thing, where to put the files of the folder (Genre Wheels)?

I have this problem, I don't see the video, yet everything seems in order, what am I wrong? Watch the video.
I have the Attract-Mode version 2.6.1 - 64-bit


For the Hyperspin Main Menu Theme Mode:
Wheel logos -> attract\menu-art\wheel
Theme videos -> attract\menu-art\themes

For the Hyperspin Theme Mode (mine is set to a 'mame' folder in the 'art-menu' folder):
Wheel logos -> attract\menu-art\Mame\wheel
Theme videos -> attract\menu-art\Mame\themes

I downloaded them from their ftp server (available for content contributors and paying customers). If you don't have access to their ftp server, look for other sources, like this one:

Also, check each platform page on the emumovies website, they should have the unified theme video available for download, like here:

Did you try a clean 2.6.1 install?

Scripting / Animations
« on: March 22, 2020, 03:40:36 AM »
How can I delay a start of one animation until another one is finished?

For example, in this code I have an animation that runs when the layout starts (Transition.StartLayout) and I want the next animation that should run when navigating the wheel Transition.ToNewSelection to NOT run until the StratLayout is complete.

if ( my_config["enable_gboxart"] == "Yes" )
   local y = 0.45;
   if ( my_config["enable_frame"] == "No" )
      y = 0.47;
   local boxart = fe.add_artwork("boxart", flx*0.38, fly*y flw*0.2, flh*0.6 );

   boxart.preserve_aspect_ratio = true;

   local start_transition1 = {
      when = Transition.StartLayout,
      property = "y",
      start = fly*2,
      end = fly*y,
      time = (ini_anim_time+400)
   animation.add( PropertyAnimation( boxart, start_transition1 ) );
   local move_transition1 = {
      when = Transition.ToNewSelection,
      property = "y",
      start = fly*2,
      end = fly*y,
      time = 1200
   animation.add( PropertyAnimation( boxart, move_transition1 ) );


Can you please post a screenshot or photo of what you get when you try to run Hyperspin Theme Mode? (It’s my theme and I wanted to hear from people with CRTs).
Also, please make sure you are running this theme in 4:3 perspective and theme quality set to low.

The reason it's happening is because the ftp access is not free. Your account level is "Content Contributor" so you were given FTP access, but it's not free for non-paying and non-contributing users.

If that is indeed the case then you can download the HQ version available for free from their website and set the option for 'Theme visual quality' to medium in the layout menu - it will be great with the HQ resolution and honestly there is a very little difference within the theme - when coding it, I myself could barely notice the difference...

I am using the latest version also. You need to take it to their forum or contact one of their admins. There is no reason I am aware of as to why this is happening. Please update me.

the ftp server is not free. do you have to pay for it, or do you have another option?

Yes it is:

I am using it all the time and not paying a cent for it. You need to open up an account in the forum and then use your username and password to connect to their ftp server. I use FileZilla which is also a free ftp client. Please read emumovies instructions carefully.

To accompany my best selling 'Hyperspin Theme Mode', I hereby present the 'Hyperspin Main Menu Theme Mode'.
You. Complete. Me.  :-*

Demo Video:

Download the theme:!MR9inIIA!h9Vm78Y4mUD5p3f1hq5LqsneYDwTlnca3nTOq5-Flz4

Here you can download the entire collection of main menu wheel art that I used in the video. Just make sure the file names are the same as your display names in AM:!0E8GCCLS!nVVz9imUYxW7iTp5KvC7Tt5XNEn8khPYNtml183M6OQ

I downloaded the menu videos from emumovies ftp server (available for content contributors and paying customers). After you download the videos, place them in a folder named 'themes' in your attract/menu-art folder.

'Hyperspin Theme Mode' forum page:

For the Hyperspin Main Menu Theme Mode, place your wheel logos and theme videos in these folders:
Wheel logos -> attract\menu-art\wheel
Theme videos -> attract\menu-art\themes
