Emulators / Re: Various emulator settings
« on: March 14, 2019, 04:02:06 AM »
Hi yiri.

My arguments here at the moment are this for make it work with relative paths:

executable           ..\..\emulators\Sega Dreamcast\redream.exe
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              ..\..\collections\Sega Dreamcast\roms
romext               .chd


In your case I would convert the GDI to CHD. Not only you will get smaller files but also a single file. It's easy and fast. To do it use chdman that you can find attached. Just drop your games files (gdi with raw, bin, etc) in the folder and click the Cue or GDI to CHD bat.

no me funciono .... igual tengo el problema con redream.exe  , el detalle es que tengo las roms comprimidas en .zip pero si las descomprimo quedan en .gdi y como sabran estos juegos en ese formato traen mas archivos .raw y bin que no se pueden sobres escribir con los de otros juegos , por lo mismo la única manera de descomprimir estos juegos en carpetas independientes , mi pregunta es como podría ser el argumento para este emulador ? gracias

Can't wait to see the evolution of it :) Really like it, so clean and the way the information, previews and so on are organized.

It can work great with small/best of system packs. :)
One of the reasons that I like AM is having the choice of different themes for different systems in the same build. It can give you a very fun and personal experience.

Thank you so much for this! It looks really great and it's currently one of my favorites. :)

PS: If you can adapt also later the theme variation by wildfire would be awesome. Maybe doing it like extra third layout.nut that people can pick from menu. It's the one with flyers/box and meta data inspired by Art-Book theme:

Cheers and thank you again!

Hi jedione,

I'm interested. Probably would be great in AM if it could use folders like fanart or boxart and other things automatically. Or even a systems menu. There's a great variation of that theme called 1Up running in retrofe also.

You can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WncDLKdoNQ4

Cheers.

Emulators / Re: Various emulator settings
« on: February 26, 2019, 02:30:25 PM »
Ok, problem solved for both cases finally. The solution resides in having relative paths in args for the two examples below. It works similar for other emulators. This way both the games launch and we can also scan the roms directories without problem. For genesis with mame I added the extra view command for the purpose of having different bezels working for each game.

executable           emulators\Dreamcast\redream.exe
args                    "..\..\[romfilename]"
rompath              collections\Dreamcast\roms
romext               .chd


executable           emulators\Arcade\mame64.exe
args                    genesis -cart "..\..\[romfilename]" -view "[name]"
rompath              collections\Megadrive\roms
romext               .7z

Emulators / Re: Various emulator settings
« on: February 26, 2019, 12:21:00 PM »
Thank you progets for the help but sadly still doing the same in both cases. :(

using console redream gives this message that could be related after listing everything correctly:

"chd parse failed to open collection bla bla game.chd"

The emulator loads well outside of AM and directly without problems in other frontend like retroFE for example.

try...

Code: [Select]
executable         emulators\Dreamcast\redream.exe
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath            collections\Dreamcast\roms
romext              .chd

Code: [Select]
executable           emulators\Arcade\mame64.exe
args                 megadriv -cart "[romfilename]"
rompath              collections\Megadrive\roms
romext               .zip;.7z
system               megadriv;Sega Megadrive

Emulators / Re: Various emulator settings
« on: February 26, 2019, 06:16:55 AM »
hi guys,

I'm having some difficulties finding the right arguments to launch the games with two emulators. Probably missing something simple

First, Redream (dreamcast)

Attract-mode finds the games, lists them, etc., but every time and with different arguments it launches Redream menu instead of the games directly.

executable         emulators\Dreamcast\redream.exe
args                 "[rompath][name]"
rompath            collections\Dreamcast\roms
romext              .chd


Second, what would be the right arg to launch systems/consoles through mame?
PS: arcade mame roms launch normal.

Attract-mode finds the games, lists them, etc., but every time screen goes black some seconds and then back to menu without launching the games

Megadrive/Genesis example:

executable           emulators\Arcade\mame64.exe
args                 "[system]" -cart "[romfilename]"
rompath              collections\Megadrive\roms
romext               .zip;.7z
system               megadriv;Sega Megadrive


Thank you in advance!

I don't want the 32gb file...I downloaded it, but couldn't mount it as an image to look at the files. If I don't see it posted somewhere else I'll have to install it on the pi.

bionictoothpick you don't need to mount it as an image. See my reply before here.
Just use a program like IsoBuster to explore the 32gb file that you have downloaded until you find the attract folder and then the layouts folder inside it from where you can copy the layouts that you want to test or keep.

You can also copy the files from the menu-art folder if you need the systems previews like videos and wheel art.

You can download the 32gb img file and then extract the contents that you want with a freeware program like IsoBuster or other for example. I did that to test some of the layouts included there since I have my own Attract-Mode build. You just search the img contents until you find the attract folder and then go to the layouts folder and copy to your build the ones that you want to test.

Hope this helps.

I'm loving this theme, and I'm using it as my main!

I would suggest some improvements and report some bugs.

BUGS:

BUG1: Sometimes when chosen for the background to be a video instead of the marquee, the sound is doubled.

BUG2: every time I leave a game, the selection menu is completely white, and I have to leave and enter the Attract mode to return, or switch to another theme of the page and return.

Hello Spinelli and sorry in advance for doing a select quote. :)

I also use the first version of this theme as main (congrats t00m for the amazing work) and found a possible fix for BUG2 that I had too. I discovered it by chance after testing one emulator that changed the resolution of the frontend everytime I exited a game. So I enabled the ResFix plugin and that fixed both problems. No more resolution change and no more completely white selection menu after leaving a game. Hope this helps.
