Ended up using marquees for the wheel. Might go in and photoshop borders around the images at some point, so they are consistent withy the ones atrfate has provided.

One quick question, that I would be super grateful if someone/ anyone could help me with. I have an issue whereby the selected game ins the wheel shunts the image to the left for some reason. Also, the pulsing effect that is supposed to be around the selection box isn't working either. Image below to show what I mean. Any ideas what might be causing this and how I might be able to fix it?

Hey atrfate, thanks for your reply.

I fiddled around with all the fade, pre-launch and whatnot options I could think of in RLUI but no dice. Even the 'Suspend Frontend' option in RLUI main settings doesn't fix the issue.

I feel I should stress that simply going to Configure > Displays > Nesica UI > Layout and choosing another layout fixes the issue. It only occurs when NXL HD / SD / Vertical is selected, so I guess my RLUI settings are correct?

For the record:
- I tested this on two different setups (my arcade box, Q4400 with 8 Gb RAM and my desktop, i5-4460 @3.20 GHz with 16 Gb RAM, both Win10 64 bits) -> Repro each time.
- I redownloaded AM NXL from scratch and manually reconfigured RLUI -> Repro.
- I tried a variety of games: Nesica, doujin games, Steam -> Repro each time. I haven't tried another emulator than PCLauncher though.

CPU usage also shoots up when AM regains focus (up to 80% on my i5), although I'd venture it has more to do with AM using software video decoding.

Apologies for resurrecting this reply from a long time ago, did you ever make any progress ?

I'm fairly sure I know what the problem is, I just don't know how to fix it ...

I've been using the fantastic theme from artfate for at least 18 months, finally moved to the Sega Pras theme for Nesica Live and all has been working. I started to have issues where the loaded game would have poor performance when started, eventually I traced this to GameLoaderALLRH.

My understanding is that the Frontend works like

Attractmode --> Rocketlauncher --> GameloaderALLRH --> ArcadePC game (usually game.exe)

What I found is that at some point attractmode no longer suspends and continues to run in the background causing the fps issues, my conclusion is that there was a change in gameloader that made this.

gameloader works as a wrapper, originally called gl.exe and more recently changed to srtgl.exe. This whole obsfucated wrapper for gameloader is I believe causing attractmode to continue..

What I have found is that if I switch theme to something else the problem goes away.

So in conclusion, an incompatibility between the latest versions of GameLoaderALLRH and the Nesica theme causes attractmode to continue to run in the background, causing fps issues.

Any thoughts ? I've tried appwaitexe, fade title, suspend Frontend etc .. to no avail ...
