I like this one for mame, are you going to share the layout?

Here you go. Just use the robo skin under the robo layout folder. Also, the wheel scrolling is still a little quirky if you scroll too fast, you'll see what I'm talking about. I am going to muck around with it some more. You can change the scroll speed under the user config.

ttime="1"; seems to help with the x axis quirk. Of course this script was designed to work that way.

I don't have the background or the selection frame in my robo folder can you put those up?

Here are the files you requested. Also, one more tweak I missed. The selection was off by 3. Change -1 to -3 under this section: case "down":
         if ( sel_y < rows - 3 )
         {
            sel_y++;
            update_frame();
            return true;

This should fix the wheel matching to the correct video as you scroll, without having to select it.

hey can you upload a copy of your modified layout after the -1 to -3 change? I altered that section of mine like you said but the scrolling and video still doesn't match up right. thanks!

You can enable cools bgmask for a nice effect with this script.

Hello mission-

The bkg.png can be whatever background you want to use. You just need to have a .png file with the same name that is added in the layout.nut. In this case, the purple background with stars is named bkg.png and resides in the same folder with with layout nut. The conveyor is a module that is also in the script. If it isn't working than you probably have the wrong version of attract-mode installed. This script needs 1.4 installed.  In theory you should be able to just drop these files in the robo folder. Backup the old robo layout.nut to something like layout.old etc. I hope this helps.
