I have a problem : I'm using AM on WIN 10, and i want to use the retroarch's FINAL BURN NEO core lo launch arcade roms . The prolem is that i can't read the game's name ut it sows only the rom name .

As far as I know this is due to a missing romlist file. You should find the proper xml list (here https://hyperlist.hyperspin-fe.com/index.php there are many but not for final burn neo) and once you have that you can set Attract Mode to read that.

Go to the emulator settings and in "Additiona import files" put the complete path to the xml file. Then rescan the romlist, it should work. At least that's what I do for console games

Thank you paolo but it didn't works :(

On raspberry using "the scraper" i have solved the problem, but on Windows is not simple ... maybe i could import file gamelist.txt from the Raspy ...

Arcadeflow 5.8 is out!

Compatibility with Attract Mode 2.6.0, and some new ways to display the displays menu list inside Arcadeflow: simple list, simplet list with menu-art artwork, and both of the above can be enhanced by new vector based systems logos that are automatically chosen depending on your display name.

Hmm what setting you have in "Info source/scraper"? I have it blank when I use external xml files. And yes you should be able to bring the list from raspberry to windows, but I have never done it...

Thank you again for the great update. Loving the detail of font and system logo under game titles. :) Regarding that, I guess you will create more in the future. Thinking about PC Games/PC appearing currently as msdos instead of PC, Windows or Steam for example.

A quick question. Is there a way to disable only the part below game titles that show the region/version and so on after system name/logo for all the systems to appear like Amiga in the print attached?

There is no option right now but it should be pretty easy to do, i’ll add it in the next release.
As for different system logos, I’ll add more, I’m still trying to find a good logo for “PC” so I used ms-dos instead. Oh and I’m also starting to convert in vector format all the manufacturer images, well maybe not all 900 of them, but the most common at least. This is so ironic since for most of them i started from a bitmap, used vecrormagic and then grabbed a screenshot :D

Thx again!

I feel you, not easy regarding a PC Games logo. On some themes I use one like this attached.

Great news about the new manufacturer logos. Not only they look great on AF besides being another nice detail of course, but they are helping me too filling some blanks. :)

This is a nice and evocative logo, but I still have to find a more compact version to use inline with text in the game "sub-name". I'll see what I can do. Recently I discovered the excellent svg logos from THK, they are helping me a lot in converting my library of logos, and even add more logos for systems.

Arcadeflow 5.9 is out, mostly a bug fix with some new system logos added. It'll take some time to get to 6.0, which will probably boast the new vector based manufacturer logos, so stay tuned, enjoy Arcadeflow and report bugs ;)

Thank you so much for the update and new option to hide version/region. Final result can look really clean and great with the recent system name logos below title. :)

Controllato. per me problema risolto. Avevo anche un piccolo problema con i video (in alcuni casi con bordi indesiderati). Ora tutto è ok. Grazie.

Excellent work, very good and complete. Is there any possibility of placing in the artwork (box theme) the titles of the games (wheel) at the top of the image? I am using artworks instead of flyers for that section, since those of Neo Geo are cut due to the resolution in which they are.
