Start looking through the source code for the plugin you are using.

I use the Hyperpie Cinematix on my PC, to launch my emulators, but there is something I do not know how to do.
Would it be possible to launch directly from this topic in Attract Mode an application like DBGL.exe (Dos Box Game Launcher)?
What code should I use?
Thank you.

I would also like to know


what if you add as a emulator? Create a empty bat file which is the rom, just thinking out loud,
I did itfor Spotify.exe and it works no problem. Basically the emulator is Spotify.exe and the rom is a empty .bat file or any empty file...

Attract only generates a romlist. The “wheel” is something someone coded in squirrel. Two different things.

Source is published as a zip, so I can’t examine it until tonight when on pc. You need to examine what’s packages in that zip.

Thank you, I didn't know that. However, I did the following test with three other layouts and the ONLY layout that did NOT have this bug is the default 'Attrac-Man'. I assume because it does not show any logos or boxart anyway...

I had the same bug with the popular 'Robospin' layout and 'Filter Grid' (isn't it a default layout as well?).
Three layouts, developed by three different individuals showing the same bug. To me it suggests that they are using something in common.

BTW, I am performing these searches using the 'KeyboardSearch plugin' supplied by AM.

Following are the screenhots:

I tested the 32-bit build, and unfortunately it's the same problem as the 2.4.1 for me. (Works when setting some window to "always on top" etc, just like 2.4.1)
Log when launching AM 2.5.1 (32-bit) -> MAME 0.78 -> 1942 below under normal conditions.

How do we get this information in front of the developers?

I think the root cause may have other interactions with other AM functions that may drive people away from using AM.

I'm aware this issue, but haven't been able to track it down or reproduce it myself to debug.
Knowing that it doesn't happen with 2.0.0rc2 is very helpful. I've gone back and looked at what might have changed and have a theory as to what might be causing this....

I've made a test patch in 2.5.1, would someone who is experiencing this please test one of the following and let me know if the problem is still happening?:



The onyx arcade one looks close to the heal thing. I could take a picture of my happ 25” bezel, but I hacked it a bit to fit in my Neo Geo cabinet. Maybe some one with nos can place it on a white posterboard with decent lighting and snap a high res pic. If I take one, you’ll get the curves. But are close to onyx arcade one. It contours in 4 directions. But from a center perspective, it will have a curved illusion.

This is exactly what I have been looking for! Thanks so much for this :D

One question though....

I've been tinkering with the .nut file to adjust to my preferences, however I can not get the wheel images to preserve aspect ratio. Some are squished horizontally and I'd like them to be displayed as is.

Any thoughts?

There's the option menu EXTRA or OVERVIEW

EXTRA shows the romlist extra
OVERVIEW shows the scraper / ....

but you have to use the last version 1.0.4
