I've changed the theme name to NEVATO.
And started rewriting the theme using surfaces.

I'm new to AM but this layout was what got me to give this front end a try.  I'm really looking forward to the final product and hope you find the time to modify it for us 640x480/4:3 guys!

Bad news.
I've partialy re-written the theme using surfaces. This is a great and very flexible way to manage "sets" of elements - but it's not working as it should (at least not on OS X)

1. visibility bug
There is a bug in AM, surface is invisible until I switch back and forth to another theme. Confirmed on OS X and Windows.

2. performance issues (on OS X at least)
If I use surfaces - GPU usage goes throught the roof and my computer starts to sound like a plane that is about to take off. You can see the numbers in a screenshot below. In OS X, WindowServer acts as a mediator between applications that want to draw on the screen and the graphics hardware - it simply draws everything on the screen. The sceenshot is with static images - if I want to play/draw a movie on a surface it's even worse. It GPU usage (WindowServer) jumps from 5% usage to 70% - on the same theme, just by using one surface for all cab elements!

So when can we try it out? Need a beta tester? or a donation to speed things up :)

I think I'll get back to non-surface version, iron out last few bugs and release it "as is" - which means only 16:9 and 16:10 aspect will be supported.

Maybe someone will convert it to 4:3 or 5:4

Code: [Select]

I wish :)

It was just an idea and a prototype - It is totaly doable, but I couldn't finish it because it is so time consuming.
read more in this thread - http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=490.msg3378#msg3378

But I'll ship it with some DMD style gaming system marquees (not animated) - see the thread http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=496.msg3491#msg3491

good news - I've figured out how to make my ways around that surface bug - and I've got working 4:3 version.
Well... I've messed up 16:9 in a process :) but it looks like I can fix it - or just release separate layouts as a last resort.

below 4:3 aspect in Astrocity 2 cab.

My screen has a ratio of .562 if I understand it correctly.

Width/Height

768/1366=.562

I'm looking forward to seeing if Nevato will work without too much tinkering.
