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?
