Themes / Re: TurboGrafx-16 mini layout update v2.1!!!
« on: Today at 05:20:29 AM »
The console has been the only mini to spark my interest. I would have bought it immediately if it had composite video. Layout looks good. I haven't tried it yet, but will soon. I suggest naming pce to follow mame driver? PCE-mini?

Where is the release? No file attachment or link.

Why ask for attract exe as well as mame exe? You don't need to generate xml. Attract already does that and imports the control data into romlist file. I created a plugin that switch ServoStik and UltraStik on win/Mac/Linux. Waiting for a pull request to be accepted on Unix tool before releasing plugin. Very interested in your setup.

Scripting / Re: shuffle module with text help

Objects are passed to shuffle class. Logic and presentation have been separated. Find where the class is created. You must pass array of objects to the class.

Yep. Even works in OS/2...

Fantastic! Is that the right way to run the command?

If it works, it works. However, squirrel has this feature built in with a function called system(cmd).

Use system command mkdir.

I'm using

Code: [Select]
fe.plugin_command("mkdir","folderpath")

It seems to work fine on macOS, gonna check if it's cross platform compatible

Change window mode to windowed or windowed no border. Then, edit attract.am with appropriate dimensions to test.

General / Re: Media folder

AttractMode does not create media folders, unless perhaps by using the built in scraper. I do not use the scraper.

It wouldn't be hard to write code to skip a certain display, and show it with a keypress. Wire one of your service buttons to your key encoder. Don't give keys to your kids.

Kids found the nude games on my megatouch last week. Had to use service button to disable then with osd menu. Can literally do same thing with attract.

You need to share attract.cfg and your emulator config. Without this, no one can help.

Read the file using squirrel standard library. May I ask what you are trying to do?

Scripting / Re: Persist variable between plugin instances? SOLVED
« on: May 14, 2020, 05:35:21 AM »
Just remember that there is no rules with fe.nv. It might be wise to store your date inside a table with plugin/layout/module name to avoid being written over.

Will do, thanks. Btw, who do I contact about having the current LEDBlinky plugin in the repo replaced with my updated version?

I believe the other process is as such, correct me if I am wrong;
  • fork repo
  • create branch
  • make commit
  • request pull

Try it. Hopefully it works. I started a public fork due to lack of communication. It's fustrating that the one open source software I can contribute to, I can't. Hopefully it changes in the future.
