I didn't have the time yet to test Ambience HD on my late 2013 macbook pro (due to the demon puppy we recently acquired :D) but you are right, Arcadeflow is using OpenGL 1.1 or 1.2, there are many things in 1.3 that are not supported on my Mac and I do most of the development here (example: you can't get a specific mipmap level, for example the first mipmap level to get the average texture color, it works in Windows, not on the Mac)

As you probably know it's difficult to debug shaders in AM as the log doesn't tell which shader throws an error, especially annoying when you have many.

If I prepared an AM test build that would show the shader file's name would you be able to test Ambience and share the log from your Mac?

Open an issue on Github, or comment on an existing one if the symptoms are simillar. Provide your full specs, system and debug log.

Update: I see you already have. I will be investigating it today.

I think I know what it is, this is a Squirrel VM error freezing AM I reported to Andrew some time ago. Check what plugins you have enabled and try to run my theme with no plugins, with 1 and 2 and report the findings in your thread on github:

https://github.com/oomek/ambience-hd/issues/2

And this is the issue I opened on Attract Mode repository:

Oomek, I think I found the error, in AM x64 does not run theme, but I just downloaded the AM x86 the theme worked without errors just do not understand why does not appear the other videos, as you can see in the image it only appears the video of the selected game the others do not appear, when I change the path of the video to Flyer it appears all images.

 
PS: Putting Flayers in place of Snaps he shows me all the images.
PS1: Leaving Snaps only appears the central video the others are without videos.

1. Read my previous post regarding AM freezes and follow my suggestions and report back to github
2. Ambience is restricted to snaps + 1 video atm.

Better if it is limited to snaps and videos, otherwise it is more tedious, especially because of the lack of material (in the case of arcade games). I am using it and with excellent results. ;D

Thanks Oomek for this theme. I really like it a lot.
Right now i am programming for the Raspberry pi 4 and 4:3 screen, so i won't be able to use it.
In any case, i love seeing the code of your layouts since i always learn something new.
And i'm glad to see you taking out new things, because that means you are in better health right now.
Thank you for everything, master.

I know, I know, I always try to build a simpler layout for that but that's not always possible, and yes it's a pain :D

I could, I don't know if I'll be able to do it this week though, but if you want I'll try to find some time

Now the names of the games are shown complete when selected. Thanks Oomek for the improvement. :)

note: on line 650

      // This will allow for horizontal navigation in the next AttractMode release
      // without remapping actions in settings

      // case "left":
      //    fe.signal( "prev_game" )
      //    return true

      // case "right":
      //    fe.signal( "next_game" )
      //    return true
Code: [Select]

case "left":
fe.signal( "prev_game" )
return true

case "right":
fe.signal( "next_game" )
return true

These lines are commented for a reason. Current Attract Mode v2.6.0 has a bug and it's causing errors in Ambience and broken navigation. Check the AM log.

It has been fixed recently in the commit below:
https://github.com/mickelson/attract/commit/a45bff88e413e81ee8c38ff3e48fd3c7b0c74aae

So unless you're compiling Attract Mode from source with that commit included DO NOT uncomment those lines, but remap your actions in Controls as advised.
