Love the idea of auto updating. Oomek and I have been talking about having attract as a whole update. Mentioned you on this git issue. Keep up the good work! https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/622

According to docs, there is no return on the system command. You can direct output to file. However, will attract wait for process to finish? Will you have to keep checking if file created?

Hello, should I be able to use this intro.nut in the plugins folder and get this to work currently?  I'm just looking for AM to play a random intro video at startup.  I tried the plugin by itself and couldn't get it to work.
Otherwise I will make an autohotkey script to rename a video in my intros folder to intro.mp4 at random.
Thanks!!

Use my gitlab fork. I replaced the official intro with my version. Common and file modules are dependencies.

No response to my remarks, other than a link? Wow.

I watched the 3d animation of the joystick. Restrictor plate is hinged. Which means it's not gated one of the modes.

Themes / Re: TurboGrafx-16 mini layout update v2.1!!!

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.

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

Yep. Even works in OS/2...

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

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.
