layout questions/requests
« on: March 14, 2015, 09:05:55 PM »
Hello, I'm just beginning my learning around Attract Mode, and I have a couple of questions about :

1. Is it possible to create a "n x n image list box" that scrolls, similar to how the iCade 60-in-1 game selection menu works:

2. Is it possible with scripting to bring up a popup-window (via keypress) that shows an image or other information (such as game info or a controller map)?

3. Is there a way to let a user cycle through a mix of custom authored romlists, "special" lists (like Favorites or Most Played) and preset filters against a master game list? (ie Top 100, Favorite, Most Played, Maze Games, Spinner Games, All Games).

Thanks!

1) Yes, take a look at the grid and filter-grid layouts.
2) Yes. Take a look at the history plugin for an example.
3) Yes. Assign keys to next/previous filter/display functions.
