You want videos to play when using Arcadeflow as displays menu layout? I have to check, I'm not sure if videos are disabled. You must put your system videos in the menu-art folder...
Yes, I do it but it doesn't work

Ok, this is by design. I think you can fix this going to line 589 in layout.nut and remove the line that says:

Code: [Select]
prf.THUMBVIDEO = false
or change it to

Code: [Select]
prf.THUMBVIDEO = true

Sorry @zpaolo11x,

this option must be changed with each update right? Do not leave it by default?

Translation to Spanish thanks to Jate from the forum is now available. You don't need to wait for the next release, just take this file and drop it in the Arcadeflow_64 folder, it will overwrite the current language file.

Enjoy!

i was searching on the forum about how to have categories on the main menu of attract mode, ut i was stunned y the amount of code that i need to know to do that ... So my question is :

There is a solution (without coding) to have categories on the main mnu using your theme ???

That's a good question, and you are right, a lot of code is needed because one basically needs to generate the whole list of categories from the romlist. So the short answer is no, there's not an easy way to have categories in a main menu in Arcadeflow, it's something I was thinking to add but not in the immediate future...

At the moment, yes. After I have finished the new options system I'll have to add an option for that...

Sneak preview of the new preferences system, instead of switching to the "Options" page of Attract Mode you can set all the options from within Arcadeflow, using a cascaded menu and visual previews of the changes. Still polishing the layout (the preview down there is pretty awful :D) but the underlying mechanics seem to work fine...

Is there any way to include story details (overviews of the games) in the history menu? The menu looks rip for adding in extra details about the game (difficulty, length, story, etc.)

It reminds me a lot of wiiflow where one had a large menu to see all the games and a indepth menu to explain more about the game.

The history page if correctly configured should show the history.dat information for arcade games on mame, while if no history.dat data is found it should show the overview data from Attract Mode (if present). How does your history page look?

Ciao. Forse ho trovato un piccolo bug (non so se ne eri a conoscenza o ti era gia' stato comunicato)
In fase di ricerca e su schermata principale compare in basso al centro una parentesi quadra con il dopppio carattere iniziale.

Questo in realtà non è un bug, la doppia iniziale è fatta per cercare contemporanemante maiuscole e minuscole, e viene aggiunta alla chiave di ricerca che l'utente ha inserito. In effetti potrei differenziare le due cose e mostrare lì sotto non la chiave di ricerca effettiva (doppia maiuscola) ma la frase inserita dall'utente... ci devo guardare, è una delle cose più vecchie del layout, sarà divertente cercare di capire come funziona ahaha

Aradeflow 6.6 is out!

There are new translations, a new options system and also a file browser (!) for choosing your custom artwork. Enjoy!

Dovrebbe essere risolto nella nuova versione 6.7 :)

Grazie per la modifica alla funzione di ricerca.
Sto provando a caricare il file history ma mi da errore (nelle versione 6.5 funzionava), non so se e' un bug. nel file pref_layouoptions e' inserito correttamente ( |DAT_PATH|D:\arcade/mame/History.dat| )
Ciao e grazie

Riesci a lanciare attract-console.exe > log.txt e mandarmi il file di testo? Intanto faccio qualche prova...

EDIT: Ho appena provato e a me funziona, che tipo di errore ti da? Hai fatto "regenerate index" dopo aver scelto la posizione del file?
