I've attached the log.   Hopefully you can get to the bottom of this.  Would having my romlists, at least for all my arcade lists, help?

The log was very helpful: Arcadeflow is throwing an error, and that's the reason why you see that inconsistent and strange behavior. It's the same kind of error you had in the past, there are two very similar functions in Arcadeflow, one for game sorting used to populate the labels, one for extracting the first letter of the name. Basically one was patched and the other not.

If you want you can try this patched layout.nut, and tell me if it works better...

With the patched layout nut, so far so good.  I'll play with it some more and report if anything changes.

Arcadeflow 4.8 is out with bug fixes and support for recent mame romlists (I was stuck with mame 0.185 :D)

Enjoy!

simply wonderful, I use only this theme in my AM, for being the most complete and functional. but I would like to leave here an idea, I use it with the mame and boxart, I would like to see if after the box image has appeared it will wait for 2 seconds and start to run the video, just like it and by default. another details that I'm encountering and with the part where the letters are down there, we have the following scenario, starts with ', A there he jumps to T and later he repeats the letter T.



Big Thanks.

This was an old issue, strange to see it again, it's due to games starting with "The" or "Vs.". Can you send me your mame romlist so I can check? You can find it in the attract mode folder, romlists subfolder. If you don't want to attach here send it to paolo.zago@gmail.com

I just checked with your romlist and it seems to work fine on my rig, so the issue is somewhere else, if you want you can share the mame.cfg and attract.cfg from your setup. Also, if you can run from console

attract-console --loglevel debug

and share the log, that would be helpful.

It seems it's a problem related to the sorting of your romlist/filter.

This is something I'm thinking about, but there are some issues, for example if the box-art or flyer is vertical (like arcade or Genesis), the gameplay video would be severely cropped, or the tile will have to change shape from vertical to horizontal, which can't be done easily in current AF implementation.

I'll see what can be done, adding cropped videos is not difficult in this case, if the cropping doesn't look too bad I'll do it. Shape-shifting box art and thumbs would be a drastic change and require a rewrite which I'm already thinking about, but that will take much more time.

EDIT: This is an implementation of the cropped video thumbs for boxart mode, it's still rough and not tested thoroughly but you can have a look at it and see if you like it...

A test that I just did. If you delete all the filters (including "All" and Favourites") the arcade collection LabeList will appear messed up for example so maybe that's related to arthurvalenca issue if some of the main filters that AM creates by default were deleted.

Wow you nailed it, in the past I fixed the routine so that if no filters were present it still worked, but I never tested it if you removed also the "Global Filter". I'll fix this asap

You can try this layout.nut, this should fix most issues when you don't have filters

With the patched layout nut, so far so good.  I'll play with it some more and report if anything changes.

I've made some changes with this temporary layout, could you test it on your romlist and tell me if it has the issue or not? That would be really helpful

Oh my god!

this layout.nut that you sent was perfect, you solved the problem of the letter orders and still put the video to work after the selection of the game, it was simply wonderful, your work and very professional, only one question could put a greater delay to when I select the box, I think that about 2 seconds would be ideal, thanks for the help.



*Letters fix.
*Watching videos in boxart mode ok.

Big Thanks!!!!

Thank you for the good comments, happy you like Arcadeflow :) I think I can add the delay, maybe I'll put an option for that in the layout options so anyone can tune it to their needs.

Actually I do not see problems in putting the videos even if they cut, because the layout has the option to predict the game, but on the main screen I found the videos and the boxes to be the same size, it does not disturb me at all. I really have abandoned all the other consoles to use only MAME, but this thema I will always use, in my opinion is the best and most complete.
