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 :(

this works?
I see the pref_update.txt file is missing

Going through the error messages in that log...

Many "Error opening file for reading" are not really errors: there are some preference files or favourite date files that are not created by default, and there's no way to catch that error because the files module catches it by itself and gives that message.

The error that counts is the "curl" related one, it seems curl can't get the "latest_version.txt" from the web, but since curl is run in "silent" mode it's difficult to debug it. If you want to help me debug it, please open layout.nut and remove the "--silent" options everywhere you find it, then try running the update again.

I have found an issue: when using "curl" in Windows the output is very different than on Unix systems and options are different too...

Try substituting "--output" in the layout.nut with "-o" that should make it work (I hope)

No, sorry:


I just noticed your shell window is from windows 7/vista, not win10. I think curl is not pre-installed on early versions of windows and that might explain ehi it doesn’t work :O I think you can install curl manually but I’m not sure if the current command line will work. I’ll also check if I can package curl with the new revision but I had issues with that

Yes, I use windows 7.
I don't know how Curl works, so I'll update arcadeflow manually.

Well this is the last resort: you can download curl.exe from here: http://www.mixandmatch.it/AF/tools/curl.exe and place it in your Arcadeflow folder. This should work with the layout command line, hopefully.

This is the expected behavior, you need to define some "static" artwork for the other games, either you add static snaps to your "snaps" category, or "titles" artwork or "flyer" artwork. The theme will use snaps by default, but you can set in the options to use titles artwork. Or you can se the "boxart mode" in the options to use flyers and box art instead of game snapshots.

Arcadeflow 8.8 is out!

Hope you like it, it's faster, more stable, with better LCD effects and some new options. Also, CURL.EXE is included in the archive to allow windows users to enjoy automatic updates without issues (hopefully!).
Since I completely rewrite the sorting routines and list management routines, fixing issues with favourites etc, please tell me if something is not working as expected!

Oh, one last thing (LOL): you can now hide games that you don't want to see in your list!
