The overview text is displayed centered at the moment, I figured it was just something like changing a C too a J.

Thanks for this theme by the way. It's really the first theme I've used that is screen agnostic.

Hello Paolo, first of all THANKS for the big work as always ...

I have a little question : every time i start AM, Arcadeflow generate screenshots named "frostgrab1.png" in AM main folder ... So i delete the pics , but when i restart again AM the pics are generated again ...

So i have tried to deselect Arcadeflow and AM don't generate the pics ...

It's a bug or something ?? anyway, it's not important, your Layout is AWESOME !!!

have a nice day !!

This screenshots are generated to create the frosted glass effect behind menus. They should be deleted when you exit Attract Mode, if everything works as expected. Also at the launch of Arcadeflow spurious frostgrab files are purged. If you see them then there might be some issue with file access, do you see errors in the log when running attract-console.exe?

If you disable frosted glass effect from the options menu of Arcadeflow you won't see them anymore.

Hello paolo and thanks for the fast answer !!

Yes, on the console i can see 2 errors with the same content :

"Error opening file for reading: P:\Emulation\FRONTEND\attract mode\attract-v2.6.1-win64\layouts\Arcadeflow_87\pref_layoutoptions.txt: cannot open file"

then i have checked on the arcadeflow folder for the file but i didn't found it. but if these pictures are necessary for the layout to work correctly is good ;)

Hi guys,

While I was searching for a good MAME frontend on linux, I've discovered Attract mode and immediatly loved it. Then Arcadeflow become my default theme!
So, I'm super noob about almost everything, sorry for the dumb question, I've tried to search but without results :(

Is there a way to let Arcadeflow show rom titles instead of snapshot? I've created the "titles" source on mame configuration inside AM, the source is pointing to the folder which contains the titles collection but I don't understand if it's possibile to set Arcadeflow to display titles.

I know that I can point the snap to titles directory but I would like to have both of them configured.

Am I missing something?

Hi Zel, at the moment that's the only option to get titles in Arcadeflow, to map them as "snaps". If you have your videos in a different folder, then you can map both the titles and videos folder to "snaps", it will show static titles and then fade to videos.

I think it might be a good idea to add an option to use "titles" instead of snaps, so you'll see titles, and then they will fade into gameplay snaps or videos. I'll add the option to the next release ;)

Yes, I do not see any message that warns that there is a new version. In the main menu it puts updates, but if I select nothing happens. I have configured "Download and install" and I have also tried "Download only"

Aw, this auto-update feature is a nightmare :( Do you have any error messages in the logs? I'll check if something wrong and fix it in the next release, you'll have to manually update in the meantime :(

Thanks, the background though is still taking its artwork from the snapshot. Maybe that needs to be changed too but it's nice when the title artwork fade into the gameplay.

I'm also fixing all the "aspect ratio" engine so that every game has its own pixel AR taken into account (like Game Gear with non square pixels, or CRT consoles with strange resolutions). I'm getting obsessed with all this AR thing LOL

Another sneak peek: titles thumbnails with matched background, vertical snaps for WonderSwan and other consoles with no "Orientation" property, and a new "HIDDEN" tag that, when set, hides your rom from the list, but you can show them in transparency :)
