But I got a strange bug ( ;D)
When I open my Steam section, every game is marked as unavailable, and I can't launch them.
If I choose ArcadeFlow 9.0 to display my Steam Games, everything is fine, no more unavailable games and I can play them (without any change in my Steam emulator config)
Do I miss something with Steam category now ?

It's not the first time I see such a bug, but can't remember who had it... I can try to replicate the issue if you send me (paolo.zago@gmail.com) your attract.cfg file, the emulator .cfg file you are using for steam, and the romlist file for steam games. How are the games run, via a script? I mean, what's in the "rom folder" for steam games?

I have sent you the files you requested !

The games are run as I've found in the forum, I got a steam emulator with :
Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1
#
executable           C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe
args                 -applaunch [name]
rompath              D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps
romext               .acf
system               PC
info_source          steam
nb_mode_wait         10
artwork    marquee         
artwork    snap            D:\Aroms\steam\Snap
artwork    wheel           D:\Aroms\steam\Wheel

And it launch the .acf files located in my steamapps directory, with the help of the romlist file :
Code: [Select]
#Name;Title;Emulator;CloneOf;Year;Manufacturer;Category;Players;Rotation;Control;Status;DisplayCount;DisplayType;AltRomname;AltTitle;Extra;Buttons;Series;Language;Region;Rating
263880;Aqua Kitty - Milk Mine Defender;steam;;2014;Tikipod;shooter;2;;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);;;;Aqua Kitty;Aqua Kitty: Milk Mine Defender;;4;;;;
263300;BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger;steam;;2014;arc;fighter2d;2;;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);;;;BlazBlue Calamity Trigger;BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger;;8;;;;
388750;BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend;steam;;2016;arc;fighter2d;2;;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);;;;BlazBlue Chronophantasma Extend;BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend;;8;;;;
285440;Crimzon Clover  WORLD IGNITION;steam;;2014;Degica Games;shooter;1;;joystick (8-way);;;;Crimzon Clover;Crimzon Clover World Ignition;;2;;;;
261180;Lethal League;steam;;2014;Team Reptile;sports;2;;joystick (8-way),joystick (8-way);;;;lethalleague;Lethal League;;2;;;;

The steamapps contains file named : appmanifest_45760.acf, appmanifest_263880.acf and so on, one for each game, generated by Steam itself.

I see what's the issue here: while the stam.cfg uses the -applaunch number to launch the app, and that number is saved in the romlist, in the directory you actually have a file called appmanifest_number.acf. Arcadeflow expects the "rom" filename to be the same as the entry in the romlist, to check if such file is present, so the check fails in this case.

There's no easy way I can fix this, the best option is to disable the file availability check in Arcadeflow options, Thumbnails, Decorations section. The decoration is just that, it doesn't prevent a game from being launched, so it should work well after you remove the red cross :)

As I just replied to you by email, I try disabling the unavailable decoration, the red cross is no more on my game, but I still can't launch them, AttractMode does nothing, the video is still playing and the game is not launched.

With the ArcadeFlow 9.0 version everything is running fine, with this configuration. But with AF 10.2, the Steam games work no more.

EDIT : on this topic, you can see that I've followed the guide to configure how Steam work : http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=503.0

This is the fix for this issue: normally AF doesn't run non-available games, but with this change AF will launch any game if you disable the red cross decoration in the options. I'll post the solution here so that anyone with a similar issue knows what to do while the new version is released

open layout.nut and look for this line:

Code: [Select]
   if (z_list.gametable[z_list.index].z_fileisavailable != "1") return true
and change it to this:

Code: [Select]
   if (prf.REDCROSS && (z_list.gametable[z_list.index].z_fileisavailable != "1")) return true

Arcadeflow 10.3 is out!

This took a lot more than expected because I kept finding bugs and tried to fix them all! The scraping engine, well I'm going to be bold and say that now it works fine on Windows, but I'm sure some more issues will pop up :D :D

Enjoy the new release and report any (other) bugs :)

Buongiorno.
Questo layout sta diventando sempre piĆ¹ completo e dalle mille funzioni!
Ho riscontrato un piccolo problema sulla creazione dei giochi preferiti (windows 10). Se premo il tasto funzione di aggiunta/rimozione, il gioco in automatico acquista o perde la stella ma la lista dei giochi in basso a destra resta invariata(non si aggiorna).
Ciao e di nuovo grazie.

Sei in un display con un filtro che mostra solo i preferiti? In questo caso AF ha qualche problemino a tenere sincronizzato il tutto, ci devo guardare bene. Se invece sei in un normale display aggiungere e togliere i preferiti non dovrebbe modificare i numeri in basso a destra che riguardano l'intera lista

Si esatto, sono nel display dei preferiti. Non lo avevo specificato.  ;D

Hai perfettamente ragione: non solo quando togli un preferito non viene aggiornata la lista, ma se sei nel display con filtro "all" e aggiungi un preferito, non viene immediatamente aggiunto al filtro "preferiti". E' un problema dovuto al fatto che il mio layout gestisce i preferiti "a modo suo" ma pensavo di averlo risolto :O ci guardo con calma in questi giorni...
