Thank you for your hard work. AM is a wonderful front end!

There are two consistent bugs regarding the search function:
1. The game logo and boxart do not update after search:
- go into any system wheel where games are listed and search for a game. Then without moving the wheel, search for another game. The wheel logo and boxart are not updated and still shows the previous search result.
Example: Let's say we are in the MS-DOS wheel which has many games and I search for "Loom", then without moving the wheel, I search for "Warcraft". The Loom game logo and boxart will still be shown. Please see attached screenshot.

2. AM crashes if you search for a game in the System wheel (where only systems are listed).

These bugs where tested on v2.5.1 as well.

Cheers.

I could be wrong, but perhaps whoever created this “wheel” (a few different versions) is changing indexes tied to button presses? It’s probably not attract related. What module is in use?

Thank you for your reply.
I'm not sure what you mean but I generated all the wheels through AM's menu (Generate Collection/Rom List) and use the 'Cosmo Systems' layouts I downloaded from these forums. What do you mean by "what module is in use"?

Cheers
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.

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

I am not a programmer.

I’ve spent the past 24hrs broken down in my pickup in the cold with little help. I’m on a cell phone buddy. Take a look. See what you can do. Or don’t use the search plugin.
