Hi!

I use the theme layouts from Yaron2019.

Is it possible to implement the virtual keyboard in the layout of zpaolo11x in the layouts on Yaron2019?

Thank you.



Zago you can do it!  ;D

Found and converted all the logos, but I'm not sure about Crazy Games, what is their logo or website?

Amazing!! You can find the logo here: https://segaretro.org/Crazy_Games

Arcadeflow 8.1 is out!

Mostly a bugfix and some minor improvements, plus more manufacturers and system logos.

If you try the auto update, and eventually the auto-install, tell me if everything goes smooth!

O.T.T.

I tried the auto-update with auto-install option: the whole process went smoothly! I also confirm that now the "blinky" shell issue originally caused by the auto-update is resolved  ;)

Well done!

Hi zpaolo11x, long time. :) Still trying to get my head around the new features and major work that you have been doing. Missing a little the older display menu but trying now to adapt to the new AF one. So, with that, a couple of requests/questions. ;)

Some extra systems logos for the display menu:
Nintendo 3DS for handhelds
Sega CD for consoles (similar to how you have genesis and mega drive)

Future Pinball
Pinball FX3

Now, the pinball systems can be found in the "OTHER" category of course, but maybe could be a good idea to implement a specific "PINBALL" category for displays menu?

--//--

Is there a way to display the systems in the menu on the specific order we have instead of being alphabetically, similar to how you have the categorized menu? Maybe I missed an option.
I ask this because most times I use more a non categorized menu with a custom order.

--//--

I noticed, in the history panel, that computer fans noise ramp up now, even with low spec mode option to "yes". Is that normal?
Also, in that panel, is there a way to have a similar option to show also less info without the region like in games menu?

Cheers and many thanks again in advance!

I know, even if I didn't personally use that feature, I was very disappointed when I discovered that it could not coexist with the new way I manage the displays menu. Maybe I'll think of something different to get the old feature back, but that will be very very difficult :(

Good suggestion, there is a Nintendo DS logo but no 3DS, and only Mega CD which is the european/japanese name AFAIK, so it will be nice to have the US one too).
A Pinball category... If I can find a good font and some nice glyphs I'll add that too ;)

There is no option at the moment, but it can be implemented pretty easily

In my system fan noise ramp up every time videos are playing, so I'm not sure if there's a difference in the history panel. I didn't change that too much in later versions except adding more data, so not really sure.
I'll check if the "less info" option can be implemented ;)

EDIT: It seems that the playing thumbnail video is not stopped when you enter history page, so you'll have two videos playing. I don't know if past versions were different, I'll check the code...

Ah maybe that's the reason for history panel appearing to be more demanding, the 2 videos at same time.

Thank you again so much for all the work. :) Don't worry about the older display method, forward is the way to go. ;)

Also, history panel enables Lotte CRT shaders, modified by me, so it's probably another cause of performance hit :D
PS: Look, isn't the "Pinball" logo nice?

Really nice indeed! Thx again and hopefully the history panel or the suggestions aren't giving you too much trouble. :)

For the history, I was thinking of a "history only" option where you don't have the first lines with the game name and data, but just the history/overview text under the game title artwork.

Hmm, maybe an option that keeps the game name (without the info in brackets) at least can be a good idea. I'm thinking more about Japanese releases or translated games where the logo may be not enough.
For Arcade/MAME usually "history only" would be enough since the history.dat file already has the game title but overview files normally only have the game info.

PS: With the option enabled to show AF display menu, when we enter the theme I'm noticing the intro sound (woosh) plays 3 times instead of only one. ???

Hmm weird, what are your options like? In my setup with everything set to default and only enabled display menu at startup I get just one woosh

what's the best file for you to check theme options, pref_layoutoptions.txt, or other?

I know that I enabled audio for thumbs and history, besides enabling getting back to display menu when exit a system, for example.
