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!

found this and figured some one may like it

ok so ya im not a linux person as ive said many times on here but im not ignorant to it either but im ONCE AGAIN having issues and cant find a solution.

took me over a year but finally figured out how to work groovy and it works beautifully EXCEPT....

after 10 to 20 min my screen goes to sleep...
how the F... do i stop that???
i found a work around for arch but it DOES NOT work for groovy..

any one got any ideas?? PLEASE!!!


funny how all this arcade stuff you find on line and its all 10 to 15 years old... and noone is updating majority of the stuff???
as popular as arcades are right now their should be an abundance of updated info....... but nope.... (ok sorry rant over) lol

has any one had any experience with them as light guns? i got 1 to work but if i have 2 it erases my control configs for that game

any info would be appreciated.

im using touchmote , tried glovepi and another one name escapes me atm.
no matter what i do i cant get my pc to recognize 2 motes at once.
i can play games with 2 motes but i have to redo the configurations every time i use them but if i use only 1 its fine and seen by mame as joy9 but if i use 2 its 10 and 11 and i have to redo the  controller config
can they be permanently paired  ??

Themes / Simulacra question
« on: September 13, 2018, 07:55:11 PM »
can the game list be replaced with marquees in place of say like wheel art??

i love this layout and would like to change the game list to marque and have marquee light up instead of pointing at it.

General / MARQUEES do work VERY well!!
« on: August 29, 2018, 09:51:17 AM »
if anyone is interested (seems years ago it was the in thing....) i got marquee on 2nd screen working in mame and attract.

mr.dos website has all the info to get it in mame. but they only work IN GAME and attract shows it in menu. so you then have it on alltimes but when you enter game it does flicker but it does work!! only took me 8 months to figure it out....

and you DONT need any special 3rd party anything. it all works and IS built in to both attract and mame.

just have to make .lay file  for mame but attract uses marquee folder.

General / needed: nonag hiscore mame please!!!!

General / maybe some insight: just an observation

(here i go with some useless rambling)

ive noticed alot of program conflicts on here and thought i spew some words for those as new to this as me.

this is in no way to disrespect anyone or to say noone here knows what they aredoing. just some honesty and encouragement.

1st Attract Mode needs NO other front end to work
2ND MAME , GENS  , STELLA , DAPHNE , etc works great out the box (some configuring may be needed but minimal)
3rd Attract Mode just works! lol
4th if you are using multiple f.e's then you are gonna have conflicts.( its like having 2 people argue differant sides of same coin)
5th Attract Mode seems to accept alot of off brand themes and if it doesnt then you can convert it or im more then sure someone on here will gladlly help if they can! (does have a GREAT support system here!!!)

ok i get it alot of people like to tinker. but i know some of this can be pretty overwelming. especialy if your new at this like i am.
but im just putting out there that this frontend needs NO HELP IN WHAT IT DOES. ESPECIALLY on a pi.
this front end does TRULY have so much more potential . it can front end basiclly any program if you set the args. the right way.
any ways ...
sorry just a thought & my spelling sucks.
