General / Re: Attract Mode @ 640x480i
« on: June 10, 2019, 05:04:33 AM »
I found a solution to this problem.  If,  when you click to not display modes your monitor can not support it ... but that goes away after a single resolution change... this will fix the problem:

1 - Stop and Disable service: AMD External events utility
2 - Ensure that the Windows advanced display option is enable: "hide modes that is monitor cannot display"
3 - You're golden... 640x480 will display in interlaced mode,  not progressive.

:)

I forgot, I did read that on byoac forum. I don’t believe I had that installed. Is it something that comes preinstalled on computers you buy from store?

Scripting / Re: Shuffle v2.0.0 - major update
« on: June 10, 2019, 04:02:59 AM »
Thanks for the rework Keil, shuffle v2.0 is working as expected after updating the code (as listed in readme). No errors encountered atm. Any chance to get an additional feature since you are updating the code? An option to switch between default behavior (loop) and stop scrolling at end of list (No loop).

Oh yeah. I had an idea for how to accomplish that. Back to work today, for two more long days. Give me a reminder Wednesday in case I forget.

Scripting / Shuffle v2.2.0 - Loop feature now added
« on: June 09, 2019, 04:47:22 AM »
Looping of the list can be enabled or disabled. This feature works as intended, but there is some what if scenarios that might have to be covered in future bug fixe releases.

Are you assigning a variable with an expression?

Wait... what version of attract are you using? Perhaps its an internal attract issue.

Created a signal exception to ignore the slot change. Will test some more, maybe make a few syntax and comments, and push update.

Ahh… I see. Switch from signals to transitions. I think this is because when people would change the index without a signal, hence the transition. Will see if I can add a signal handler and have it ignored in the transition.

General / Re: Install Attract-Mode on Lakka

Yup. Thats why i posted the guide i made to have a quick system with what i wanted. I asked the same question even in the lakka forums and they had not a clue. Did you even read my guide?

"I'm building an arcade cabinet and I'm plannaing on using an old PC rather than a raspberryPI"

Your guide is for Pi only, correct?

Oh, shit. Why you mention the raspberry pi then? Install some other normal linux distro? Can use GroovyArcade. Find on byoac forum.

Do you have your roms in the default directory or whatever you changed in mame.ini? Is attractmode launching differently somehow? Perhaps changing the working directory?

There isn't an issue with shuffle as it works perfectly fine in my theme as well as a few others. Perhaps an incompatibility with something else in your theme? Today is my last day of work. Will try to get to it after sleep. If i cant figure it out, just send me image files. I can code that theme from scratch in a single night. It was just too much to look at the first time i saw it.

Scripting / attract-history-parser
« on: May 30, 2019, 11:11:37 PM »
Looking for a better way to integrate history.dat into my layout. I am hoping that Info.Overview and text.first_line_hint is the answer. To generate the needed overview files from history.dat, I created a multi-platform python script. I still need to add filtering based on romlist or just arcade/softlist in case some one doesn’t want all 65,378 files to be generated.

Thoughts? Speed an issue with all the files? Worth using the data as an overview, or should we fork the history plugin and modify it? I think the commit changing the location to „scraper“ was a weird choice.

https://github.com/mickelson/attract/commit/88595c811b2ebe717d1c9ea116373531b92cc6cb

Here’s my boring video explaining why I created the script and using it.
