Cool, I got my mame videos from here: http://www.progettosnaps.net/videosnaps/ and they are at the correct pixel resolution with correct display aspect ratio, but since you have pixel perfect snaps I can fix the layout to make it work with your videos ;)

That sounds like music to my ears, thanks a lot !

If you want to beta-test the feature, you can try with this attached layout: just put it inside your Arcadeflow folder. But before doing that make a copy of the current layout.nut just in case.
This version should use the static snap resolution to set the video resolution so you should be able to see a bit more of your video :)
If you want to see even more, look for the line:

   scanrows = 180.0

and increase it, be careful though that if a game has less than the lines you put there, it will look pretty bad.

Is anyone using arcadeflow with future pinball or visual pinball?

I'm not sure, but future pinball and visual pinball are both supported by AF as far as system identifier and other data are concerned. I don't think that's the issue, but if you remove the pinball display does it work?

If I change the layout for the VPX to something besides ArcadeFlow the interface remains usable.

Great! I was able to replicate the issue, now I'll be traveling all day so I'll need time to patch a definitive solution, but for the moment try this: in your .cfg file change the line

Code: [Select]
system Pinball
to

Code: [Select]
system Visual Pinball
this should fix it for the moment.

EDIT: Fixed! It was easy, and I'm an idiot: do you remember the patched layout.nut I prepared for you? In that patch I put a workaround but forgot to comment out the old line of code causing the error :D I'll implement it in 9.1 soon

If you're able to have the overlay go over the system select menu, that would be a nice addition.

Hmm I just checked and the overlay should go over the system menu... Are you sure you used the option "Background"->"Custom Overlay" to set the overlay?

Yes. You can see in the picture how the overlay is there, but the system menu is on top of that overlay.
The image was so big it looked obnoxious in the forum so I deleted it. I'll repost another tonight.

Don't worry, I saw the picture, no need to re-upload that. I was just asking because I tried with my setup and the layout is correctly "on top" of the displays menu. It may be an issue with z-order, I'll look into it but it is difficult if I can't replicate the issue.

Mostly bug fixes and usability improvements in this version.

I'm trying your auto install update for the first time. A windows popped up and the download was successful, but I'm just getting a circle at mouse cursor within attractmode...how  much time should I give the install?

If you are upgrading from 9.0 to 9.1 I have to warn you that the auto-install function doen't work as expected yet. It should be fixed in 9.1, so you could auto-update and auto-install when 9.2 is out.

That's probably the auto-install getting stuck, I suggest you only use auto-download when running 9.0. I know this auto-update thing is a nightmare, because every change takes effect to the NEXT version...
