General / [HELP] Date does not appear in the layout
« on: September 14, 2018, 03:23:44 PM »
Hello everyone, I am having difficulty with this code I would like the date to appear in layout but it does not work, I tried with another way it appears but the month is delayed, instead of being month 09, it is 08, I would like it to look at the names and present the names according to the code, can anyone help?

Code: [Select]
//Date
local dt = fe.add_text( "", ::flw * 0.350,::flh * 0.360,::flw * 0.411,::flh * 0.032 );
function update_date( ttime )

local days = ["Sunday", "Monday", "Tuesday", "Wednesday", "Thursday", "Friday", "Saturday"]
local months = ["January", "February", "March", "April", "May", "June", "July", "August", "September", "October", "November", "December"]

{
local now = date();
dt.msg = ("%s", days[now.wday]) + "/" + ("%s", months[now.month]) + "/" + ("%02d", now.day ) + "/" + ("%04d", now.year );
}
fe.add_ticks_callback( this, "update_date" );

PS:
This code appears below but it does not work very well, it is not in the correct format:



Code: [Select]
//Date
local dt = fe.add_text( "", ::flw * 0.350,::flh * 0.360,::flw * 0.411,::flh * 0.032 );
function update_date( ttime )

{
local now = date();
dt.msg = ("%s", now.wday) + "/" + ("%s", now.month) + "/" + ("%02d", now.day ) + "/" + ("%04d", now.year );
}
fe.add_ticks_callback( this, "update_date" );

Help Please.

General / [Help] Display Favorites
« on: August 26, 2018, 07:33:47 AM »
Hello everyone, I'm working on the Favorites screen, but I'm not getting AM to read all the .tag files that are inside the "romlist" directory, for the new screen it only gives me the option to select a single screen to display the favorite files, my question is how do I make AM read all the .tag files of favorites and show them all in just one screen?
PS: Arcade.tag, nes.tag, atari.tag -----> in just one screen.
