General / Re: Videosnaps Playback auto skip to the next possible?

it depends on used display theme.
HUD Theme supports it. It plays the video snap. Then it scrolls to next game and so on.

General / Re: $PROGDIR variable not working on Attract Mode for MacOS
« on: January 14, 2021, 12:52:32 PM »
I'm not using a Mac. Is your environment $PROGDIR correct?
Attractmode is case sensitive. For example windows environment for C:\Program Files :

do not work:
executable           %programfiles%\MyProgram.exe

executable           %PROGRAMFILES%\MyProgram.exe

@ glaysonmestre
your emulator settings are hard coded with a static path that points to a single game:
/c cd C:\arcade...\OpenBOR\SFFGP
Of course you get with this setup only one game.

1) use seperate gamefolder each game.
so in each folder is a own OpenBOR.exe and only one .pak, .spk, whatelse to find

for my two example games : Golden Axe Legends and Golden Axe Myth

2) edit your emulator config in AM (because it is not correct):
If you want to add dynamic files detection, you have to use variables/parameters that attractmode unterstand : [name]
/c cd C:\arcade...\OpenBOR\[name]

See my config here (Section OpenBOR)

@ Delita Hyral
please tell us, what are the correct arguments of Mame32 Plus, to start a rom-file from batch, CMD, command line.
See FAQ, helpfile, whatever of Mame32 Plus.

try different things:

-run BIOS and FIRMWARE updates too

-try another layout:
start AM > press TAB key > Displays > your_Display > Layout : try_here_another_layout

-try different video decoder settings:
start AM > press TAB key > General > Video Decoder

-run attract with another user account

-try to start attract-console.exe

-right mouse button on attract.exe > properties > compatibility > check : run as administrator > OK

-resize or change video codec of one video with video-decoding software (there exists different threads with resolution, working codecs, ...)

-Make two seperate folder : Gamecube and Wii

-download Dolphin

-extract it to each folder (so you get all programfiles seperated to each folder (so you found in each folder dolphin.exe and so on))

-make each Dolphin-folder portable
Please note the FAQ of Dolphin
look for dolphin.exe > create there a textfile called portable.txt

-copy romfiles to each folder

-create systems in AM.
See section:

> Wii / Nintendo Wii

Emulators / Re: Cemu with loadiine games impossible?

are you able to start Mario Kart if you rename "/Mario Kart 8/code/Turbo.rpx" to "/Mario Kart 8/code/Mario Kart 8.rpx" from commandline
You told:
"I wish I didn't have to do this hacky thing every time I get a new game"

maybe there are different solutions by external scripts, batch, relative paths, romlist-modifing and so on.

Do this work?
/Mario Kart 8/code/Mario Kart 8.rpx

tested and compiled with this code:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
start "" /min C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe
start "" /b calc
ping -n 20
taskkill /F /IM cmd.exe
cmd popup suppressed

General / Re: Need help with OpenBOR on my Windows PC Attract Mode 2.6.1
« on: December 25, 2020, 08:35:34 AM »
Did you set openbor in ingame options to fullscreen?
what happens if you set nb_mode_wait from 0 to 5 ?

@ pirracas77
probably you can remove this little windows with this tool : bat to exe converter.
with this tool you can create hidden / invisible exe files (batch files, thats suppress cmd window).

-check that sounds are correct activated
>check that main sounds are activated and not disabled

-disable console in AM:
start AM > press TAB key > General > Hide Console : yes

-try another version of AM:
>the newest version of AM
>an earlier version/former version of AM

-try another architecture of AM
>x86 version of AM

General / Re: Various shutdown options on exit in Linux
« on: December 14, 2020, 01:17:44 AM »
in AM, you can add a command, that starts after exit dialouge of AM.

start AM > press TAB key > General > Exit command : poweroff
exit AM
start AM again

It think, if you want to run it with sudo, the current user needs specific privileges to run it with sudo (otherwise linux waits for input of password for sudo).

in AM exists a Utility Menu. There you can add your commands, start another .nut files and so on

start AM > press TAB key > Plug-Ins > UtilityMenu

Enabled : Yes
Control : for example U
Item 1 Menu Text : Reboot
Item 1 Command : init 6

press the U button in game selection/display, a menu appears with your commands.

> Daphne / Laserdisc / LD

keep always the same folder and file names (here : lair and badlands)

-extract games to rom folder:
C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\roms\lair     =>     C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\roms\lair\dl_f2_u1.bin and so on

C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\roms\badlands     =>     C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\roms\badlands\badlands.a13 and so on

-extract media files (video and sound) to a folder:
C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\mpeg2\lair     =>     C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\mpeg2\lair\lair.m2v and so on

C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\mpeg2\badlands     =>     C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\mpeg2\badlands\badlands-pc.m2v and so on

-create a textfile each game, that contains the path and filename to media files:
it contains:
151   lair.m2v

it contains:
151 badlands-pc.m2v

-create .bat files each game:
C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\BAT\Dragons Lair.bat
it contains:
C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\Daphne.exe lair vldp -fullscreen -x 640 -y 480 -nohwaccel -framefile C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\framefile\lair.txt

it contains:
C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\daphne.exe badlands vldp -framefile C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\framefile\badlands.txt -fullscreen

executable           CMD
args                 /c "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\Daphne\BAT
romext               .bat
system               Pioneer LaserActive
exit_hotkey          Escape
