It's broke due to changes made by thegamesdb.net. https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/532

General / Re: Attract Mode only displaying parent ROMs and no clone ROMs.

Ok, sounds good.

BTW - I just noticed your original /attract/emulators/MAME.cfg had a typo. It's missing a ":"
You had this
Code: [Select]
import_extras        c:\mame\catver.ini;c:\mame\nplayers.ini;c\mame\mame.xml

but it should have been this
Code: [Select]
import_extras        c:\mame\catver.ini;c:\mame\nplayers.ini;c:\mame\mame.xml

I thought that your mame.xml might have been the issue, that's why I had you remove those lines. Let's try this...

open a command prompt and run these commands
Code: [Select]
cd c:\mame
mame64.exe -listxml > new_mame.xml

once this is done remove this line from /attract/emulators/MAME.cfg
Code: [Select]
info_source          listxml

and add this line to /attract/emulators/MAME.cfg
Code: [Select]
import_extras        c:\mame\new_mame.xml

now we need to generate the romlist again
Configure-->Emulator-->MAME-->Generate Collection/Rom list

Remove these two lines from your /attract/emulators/MAME.cfg file
Code: [Select]
system               Arcade
import_extras        c:\mame\catver.ini;c:\mame\nplayers.ini;c\mame\mame.xml

Regenerate the romlist and let us know the result.
Configure-->Emulator-->MAME-->Generate Collection/Rom list

Make a copy of /attract/romlists/mame.txt then do this and if it doesn't fix your issue post your new /attract/romlists/mame.txt file.

Configure-->Emulator-->MAME-->Generate Collection/Rom list

I thought the same so I started everything from a fresh install to make sure there was no weird filter issue. I've attached it but as you can see, it's pretty bare bones.

I'm wondering if it's the xml file I downloaded (possibly it's built for parent-only sets?) but I'm fairy sure I got it from the official MAME site so I doubt that.

This attract.cfg looks fine. Please post you MAME.cfg emulator file (/attract/emulators/MAME.cfg).

I have tried this on the ARpiCADE on my PI3B, and it never changes the DisplayMenu.. I change to all other kinds of themes(layouts) and it never changes.

Configure-->General-->Startup Mode=Show Displays Menu

Change these lines in your mame.cfg
Code: [Select]
args              "[romfilename]"
workdir            C:\Users\Pinkpuff\Documents\Software\AttractMode\.

to these
Code: [Select]
args              [name]
workdir           C:\Users\Pinkpuff\Documents\Software\MAME

1- In your attrcat.cfg, systems should be listed like this:
Code: [Select]
display Atari 2600 (Stella)
layout               Chicuelo-WIP
romlist              Atari 2600 (Stella)
in_cycle             yes
in_menu              no
filter               ALL
sort_by              Title
If the parts about in_cycle and in_menu are missing then add them (please make a backup of attrcat.cfg before that) and check.

2- In the video, looks like collections are being used, you can do that in two ways. DisplaysMenu and using Tags/Displays. Displays Menu is discussed ^ For tags/Displays you have to:

a) Open MAME and create a tag on any CPSI game (Tags control can be Configured from AM > Controls). Tag can be named anything, lets name it CPSI. This will create a file in AM\Romlists\[MAME]\CPSI.tag. Opening this file will show you the [NAME] of file you created tag for.

b) go to AM > Displays > Add new dsiplay > Name it anything (like CPSI). Then fill the rest of details, in Collection/Romlist Select your main MAME romlist (exactly as you have named it - as it is in AM\romlists\[MAME].txt). In global filter > rule > Target = Tags, Comparison = contains, Filter Value = CPSI.

c) This should create a new Display CPSI, which will list a single game you tagged. If the game is there and display is working as expected you can use an app like romlister to make txt files of all CPSI titles (or get a list from internet) the .tag file only lists a single [NAME] in single line. If you like the results you can add the rest of displays following the same method.

rand0m is correct about this being the correct/best/easiest way to get your desired function without reinventing the wheel. Depending on what you want you might also need to manually create your romlists for the submenus.

This thread might help you understand it better but it's old and the plugin mentioned there isn't needed since it's now built into Attract Mode http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1804.msg12653#msg12653

Try changing your layout to "Basic" and see if you still have an issue.

Post your Attractmode MAME emulator file (mame.cfg) and your MAME mame.ini file. Also tell us which versions of AM, MAME and OS you're using.

Looks like MAME has an issue. This will likely be resolved in your /mame/mame.ini file (or through the mame gui). If your resolution/aspect ratio/etc has changed you will need to adjust it somewhere to correct for it.

General / Re: How to add filter rule [a]
« on: January 26, 2019, 12:43:45 PM »
Not directly as far as I know. There isn't any filtering file used that contains the rompath information. You can still accomplish this but it will take some creativity and a little more work. If you explained your use of this I might be able to provide a solution. A few possibilities might be...

- populate and use the "Extra" field of the romlist (this could be done manually, with a script or with a spreadsheet app)

- use separate "Emulator" names for each path needed and then use the builtin feature to combine the two romlists into one (now you can directly filter on the "Emulator" field since each will have a unique name for the rompath needed)

- create and use tagging for the roms using the specific path and then create your filter based on the tags

The same character escaping is needed do to the ( & ).

Code: [Select]
rule                 Name contains \(ES\)
