attracmode fork
« on: October 12, 2019, 03:35:09 AM »
I started a fork of attractmode.

  • Encourage more pull requests, especially with modules and responsive layouts
  • Create member permissions
  • Actively update a separate wiki
  • Continuous Integration to automatically build all platforms and wiki
  • Explore premake

I am hoping we can form a small team. Get a better understanding of attract (which is full of things I never noticed until recently) and improve it.

For anyone interested, feel free to view the following links and discuss here or on discord.

Been talking with oomek and substring. Both had suggested a fork to get more pull requests, so I took the initiative. Just need a little time to get the ball rolling and hope others will jump in!

Working on the wiki. Will push a commit by the end of the week. Added and broke down layouts.md into different files. Some other refactoring as well. Hopefully it will make it easier to navigate. The initial commit was just to import the original content.

Some changes on the wiki. Check it out and let me know what you guys think. The reference section still needs in markdown links edited, but is mostly completed. It was a larger task than I thought.

I haven't made any major commits to the attract repo yet. I’m hoping subs can help me with the CI. I attempted to auto compile linux binary, but it failed. Once the major platforms are compiling, ill let you guys know how to obtain them and then work on adding in layouts/modules/plugins. Everything takes time.

Excellent work on the wiki Keil. "signal_str" in Signals is a bit outdated (the official wiki is outdated too). Some signals are missing e.g. "edit_game".

Thank you. Check out source and added. Can view link here to verify (once CI is done compiling html): https://attractmode.gitlab.io/wiki/reference/functions/#fesignal

Also cherry picked some commits to the attract source.
  • Inline with official repo of 2.6.
  • Added FPS monitor plugin by Radek Dutkiewicz
  • Fixed fonts not loading in plugins by Radek Dutkiewicz
  • Gathering artwork optimization by Radek Dutkiewicz

* Added common (helpers) module
* Added shaders module
* Added PICNnMIX module
* inline with latest attract commits, including sample_aspect_ratio by Andrew Mickelson (updated wiki)
* Linux CI is now working, going to investigate windows and mac osx

Any suggestions, or pull requests feel free to do so! One thing I would like to do is integrate leap (skip empty displays such as favorites) into attract source instead of a plugin. Hmm…

Edit: resolved lint CI and added new intro layout.
