Some changes on the wiki. Check it out and let me know what you guys think. The reference section still needs in markdown links edited, but is mostly completed. It was a larger task than I thought.

Excellent work on the wiki Keil. "signal_str" in Signals is a bit outdated (the official wiki is outdated too). Some signals are missing e.g. "edit_game".

Thank you. Check out source and added. Can view link here to verify (once CI is done compiling html): https://attractmode.gitlab.io/wiki/reference/functions/#fesignal

Also cherry picked some commits to the attract source.
  • Inline with official repo of 2.6.
  • Added FPS monitor plugin by Radek Dutkiewicz
  • Fixed fonts not loading in plugins by Radek Dutkiewicz
  • Gathering artwork optimization by Radek Dutkiewicz

you are a machine.....good work,    looks like you add a bunch of layouts to it,,
Q:  new to what you are doing...so when u chang somthing, and make a commit is their a place
were i can download the newly compiled AM,  or will i need to learn how to do that my self?

thanks.

I haven't made any major commits to the attract repo yet. I’m hoping subs can help me with the CI. I attempted to auto compile linux binary, but it failed. Once the major platforms are compiling, ill let you guys know how to obtain them and then work on adding in layouts/modules/plugins. Everything takes time.

Working on the wiki. Will push a commit by the end of the week. Added and broke down layouts.md into different files. Some other refactoring as well. Hopefully it will make it easier to navigate. The initial commit was just to import the original content.

are you working with Oomek, on this ?     it seemed he is realy into that kind of thing....modding and such...

Been talking with oomek and substring. Both had suggested a fork to get more pull requests, so I took the initiative. Just need a little time to get the ball rolling and hope others will jump in!

I started a fork of attractmode.

  • Encourage more pull requests, especially with modules and responsive layouts
  • Create member permissions
  • Actively update a separate wiki
  • Continuous Integration to automatically build all platforms and wiki
  • Explore premake

I am hoping we can form a small team. Get a better understanding of attract (which is full of things I never noticed until recently) and improve it.

For anyone interested, feel free to view the following links and discuss here or on discord.

In anger to the latest question - Yes it can see everything in the package

I have now moved the package into the documents directory and repeated everything with the same results.

I hope someone wiser than me can fix this - I love Attract mode and will be devastated if I have to dump it - not least because there is no real alternative on the Mac and I absolutely will never return to Windows.

Don’t forget about Linux!

I have had a few issues with directories using attract app package and osx in the past. Try this from the terminal, but substitute paths appropriately.

Code: [Select]
$ cd /Applications/Attract.app/Contents/MacOS
$ /Applications/Attract.app/Contents/MacOS/attract --config /Users/keiljr/.attract/

Sorry... There is no OSX Catalina, it is macOS Catalina.  :-[

And i plan to continue using Mojave for a long time ... until they remove the exclusivity of 64-bit applications.  >:(

And this drift to make macOS more and more similar to IOS will not help me to change macOS version.  :o

My macbook has been running Mountain Lion for many years and i haven't needed anything more modern.  ;D

And my Toshiba Libretto U100 has been running Windows XP for many years and i have not needed to change to windows 10.  ;D

You do know that the “X” in “OSX” is Roman numeral for “10”, and we are at mac version 10.15. While Apple might have dropped the term, calling it “osx” is not incorrect.

I don't agree with you, Keil, nor Apple either:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacOS   

https://www.apple.com/macos/catalina/

The denomination you say and the reasons you give are obsolete, have long since changed. I also like the name OSX, but Apple does not. And they are the owners of the creature.  ;D

Lmao

Whats your terminal output/log? Show app contents and run the bin from the terminal.

Apple deprecated opengl last year. This is bad news for attractmode, and lots of other apps and games. I will be using linux full time when my mac is done. Not happy with apple’s decisions lately. I can try to help, but because of this - I have a very expensive and high spec computer that cant install the latest operating systems.

You need to get familiar with unix commands and the find command. But i’m with iotero. Retropie is a disaster that I don’t support.

I have visited arcademvs.org, and it will be because of my poor command of the English language, but i have no idea what you intend to do on that site... Sorry  :-[

Guides for creating MAME machines. I have a guide how to fully hide windows 10, how to create a mame setup from scratch on the raspberry pi, unix commands, how to compile mame on different operating systems. These are things a lot of people struggle with or just haven't a clue to do and instead seek “images” and end up in the same position of not knowing how to do something. The namespace also now houses my attract layouts/modules/plugins. Guides might be at a standstill until I fix my flyback transformer.

then it must be win 10. i shelled windows 7 and it work flawlessly.
can see it in action here   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCjIoQB_KCM&t=39s
took me some time but it works great.
well... except i have issues with custom layouts.

It’s not. I have windows 10 and it’s 100% black until attractmode launches. Either he is using the wrong edition of Windows, he is making a typo, or not following directions. I even posted links to the official microsoft docs that include compatibility. Not all editions of Windows are the same. Without more info than „do nothing“, there is nothing anyone can do. Don’t let the post have a negative perception on using windows 10.

Check out the guide on my wiki http://arcademvs.org


I tried some minutes ago and do nothing. :(

You have to be more specific than “do nothing” if you want help. You said the same thing on Facebook. I tried to help. I’m done being aggravated.
