system menu "game counter" release.....
« on: October 19, 2020, 03:12:15 PM »
hey guys just put this together... it is a quick drop in folder for any
system menu theme that that will show the number of games in a system.

this is borrowed code, so generously from yaron2019 from the pcca layout.

basically all you do is drop a folder in your theme, and add one lines of code
to your theme, done.

ie:
Code: [Select]
fe.do_nut("syscount/count.nut");

small preview....

here you go,  it is in a small layout so you can see how it works....
after that all you need to do is just put the folder inside "syscount"
into any theme and should work fine...

note : to alter text position, color, placement.. .ext the code will need to be changed by you...
this just simply puts it on deck for you to use...

will be adding options soon,  just not mutch time....

I tested the game counting code on linux and it failed because of a wrong "\\" character the module use in the path (works on windows 10 though). Fixed it in my latest release.

So change this:
Code: [Select]
            local text = txt.loadFile( FeConfigDirectory + "romlists\\" + romlist + ".txt" );
To this:
Code: [Select]
            local text = txt.loadFile( FeConfigDirectory + "romlists/" + romlist + ".txt" );
Of course, test it on your side to see that it works as well.
