Se l'aggiunta di overlay è problematica, secndo me puoi lasciare stare per ora. Ho risolto inserendo per l'history un'immagine senza trasparenza. L'effetto finale è bellissimo. ciao

Per ora sto risolvendo tutti i piccoli nuovi bug della 5.6, magari la versione 5.7 la rilascio semplicemente come bugfix, e per le nuove feature aspetto la prossima... Hai un paio di screenshot da caricare? Sto ripulendo gli attach di questo thread eliminando i miei più vecchi perché pare che lo spazio di upload fosse pieno :D

Sort Value has been added today > https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/558, I have not tested it yet but I think we should be able to directly call sort value with desired parameter now (Year, Player etc). Wonderful work with this theme btw :)

I just saw the commit, but as far as I can tell, this is not related to changing the sort order of an existing game list from the layout. The change allows you to read the "sort key" from game data, for example if the game is Golden Axe from 1992 made by Sega and the sort order is "by Year", the game_info sort value is "1992". That's a nice addition (I asked for that myself) I have to see if it allows me to simplify part of my code :)

Noticed one thing regarding the starting counter on both display menu mode and games. You can see the list number starts at zero instead of 1. I guess the logical way would be for the counting to start at 1?

Another small thing just saw. Even with option to display system name to off, some systems like Amiga and others still show the system anyway.  :o

Replicated both issues, both should be fixed in attached beta version. Thanks again for your debug help!

Ciao. Ho trovato un bug. se inserisco le immagini di sfondo (main e history), andando sulla schermata history l'immagine main non sparisce

Giusto, perché se l'immagine di sfondo della galleria ha una trasparenza, sotto si vede l'immagine di sfondo principale... non ci avevo pensato, un bel problema. Credo che la soluzione migliore sia inserire dei veri e propri overlay, lasciando la gestione sfondi così com'è. Ci guardo...

Starting to test version 5.6 :)

Could I release a new version without breaking the displays menu mode? Of course not :D Please try the attached layout.nut, it should fix the issue you see when starting in displays menu mode.

Even after activating the low-end machine option it's quite slow and unresponsive, and the screenshots take ages to load (I have to wait even 30 seconds just to see the game I currently selected, I think I never saw the non selected ones with screenshots...).

I'm sorry AF runs so slow on your machine, from what I can see, it seems that the "culprit" here is the graphics card. I run my test rig on an Intel Iris 5100 that has a gpumark of around 700, Arcadeflow runs at about 25 to 30 fps there, so not at the top speed, and your card seems to have a gpumark around 300, which is even lower.

Sadly even in low-spec mode Arcadeflow uses a lot of GLSL shaders, the only thing you can try is setting in arcadeflow options a custom resolution that's lower than your screen resolution, like 640x360 (for 16:9 screens) or similar, this should improve a bit.

Commands layout should be there by default, the shortcuts are hard to remember and I'm not always the one using the emulator.

I don't like shortcuts myself, actually shortcut compatibility was added to Arcadeflow only in later releases. That's the reason why I developed the contextual menu, that pops up when you press "enter" and gives you a lot of option, and the multi-functional scrollbar that can be used both for next/prev "page" jumps and for next/prev "letter". The only element of Arcadeflow that's a bit hidden is the utility menu you engage when going up, but overall the idea behind the theme was that just using a joystick and a single button you could use all the features of the theme.
A "sticky" overlay is a bit too much for most users, maybe I'll come up with something subtler like hints and popups help for the first run... but I like my layout cleaner :)

Another week, another revision! Arcadeflow 5.6 is out, many bugs in the sorting feature are fixed, there are a new sort menu, and revamped menu systems with nice glyphs. New options for gallery backgrounds and an option to sort "by System" for multi-system romlists which is something you can't usually do in Attract Mode ;D

Keep me updated if you find some bugs, and enjoy the new version!

Si. Trasparenza leggera. Simula il vetro di un vecchio crt

Ok, sto lavorando all'implementazione. Purtroppo ho scoperto che la nuova routine di ordinamento ha un sacco di piccoli bug difficili da scoprire, sto fixando il più possibile, se tutto va bene venerdì esco con la nuova versione :D

Ciao. Ho fatto qualche prova. Ti posto le immagini. Per lo sfondo del main screen come mi hai detto, va benissimo. L'unico intoppo e' la schermata history. Se riuscissi nelle prossime versione a differenziare gli screen di sfondo te ne sarei molto grato.

Sto implementando il doppio sfondo, ma mi è venuto un dubbio: il problema è la sfumatura sotto lo screenshot nella pagina della history? Il tuo bezel ha il centro trasparente?

Perché nell'implementazione che sto facendo lo sfondo della history si posiziona _sopra_ la sfumatura ma _sotto_ il pannello bianco del testo, che però può essere eliminato. In questo caso se lo sfondo ha una trasparenza però vedresti sempre dietro la sfumatura verticale. Aggiungerò un'opzione per toglierla, anche se a quel punto il doppio sfondo è superfluo, ma ormai l'ho inserito e lo teniamo :D

Even after I put the new layout.nut still encounter some problems, in the images below I marked some.

The history bug completely flew under my radar, I don't know what happened, apparently reordering file calls fixed the bug. You can check the attached layout (you'll probably miss the "tag" icon because I changed the PNG name)

The blank space above the "TITLE" sorting hint is due to the fact that there you'd see the "filter" name of the current filter. Usually displays have at least a "All" and "Starred" filters, but your display doesn't have any so I'm sorry it won't show anything there. [EDIT] I'll change the code so that if no filter name is available that area will only show the sort order. I'm also adding some nice glyphs that will be much better than ">" and "<" :D

I have your rom list data so I should be able to replicate and fix the issue, do you see some errors on the console when running attract-console.exe? I’ll have a look at it today and report back

Arcadeflow 5.5 is here and, you guess it, you can now sort your games lists on the fly! And save the new sort order through sessions! While the code works, it still needs a lot of polishing and improvements, but from my tests it's fast and reliable. You can access the "Sort by..." menu from the "Utility menu" of Arcadeflow. Maybe a hotkey would be nice, who knows, maybe in a future revision :D

Hope you won't find too many bugs, if so, please report them together with any improvement suggestion!

Enjoy!

I also prefer when you click "next letter/prev letter" that it goes to the first item of each letter. More intuitive (and logical?) that way personally. :)

That's my idea too, I'll see if I can implement it and how it works with reversed lists.

If someone wants to play with a VERY preliminary layout, it's a bit slowed down by the huge amount of debug it prints on the console, but should work. Sorting is done in the "utility menu", "nosort" lists should work correctly, there's a layout option to decide if you want to sort by title stripping articles.
