Scripting / Attract-Mode-Image-Resize
« on: May 30, 2024, 03:58:09 PM »
A small program for Attract Mode, created with python that allows us to resize our game images in just one click, but obviously you can use it to resize any image you want. Enjoy.
1) Make sure you have the latest version of Python 3.12 (64-bit) on your PC
2) Make sure you have the tkinter and Pillow libraries installed in your Python environment.

General / [Fixed] Syntax error [firstletter ()]?
« on: September 15, 2022, 04:05:03 PM »
When I start AM and try to enter a system for example MAME, AM freezes and I have to close it manually. When I open the last_run.log file I see this error, can you give me a hand to solve? did he do it to you too?

AN ERROR HAS OCCURED [slice out of range]

*FUNCTION [firstletter()] H:\Arcade\layouts/Boysroom/layout.nut line [163]

In line 163 I have this syntax
Code: [Select]
//First Letter//

function firstletter ()
        local first_char = rstrip(fe.game_info(Info.Title)).slice(0,1);
        local expression = regexp("[a-zA-Z]");
        if (expression.match(first_char) == true) return first_char
        else return "#";

//First Letter White//
local surface = fe.add_image( "firstletter/[!firstletter]",10, 1040, 480, 25);

Here is my third theme for Attract Mode, let me know in the comments if you like it, I accept even negative criticisms because these also serve to improve, this style is minimalist and reflects a bit my canon of retro.

✔New theme Rogue Nostalgia v1.0.1
✔Author: by Arcadiano



Hi guys I am creating a personal style, but I am little expert with this language, in practice I would just like to know how to have a CD that runs, I just need this then I am satisfied with my work

Can some good soul pass me the code?

General / (Solved) Exit from openBOR?
« on: March 07, 2021, 09:57:58 AM »
This code works, but with a small flaw when you launch a game immediately after it returns to attract mode, but with the game still open, then when you click the exit button the game closes, but while the game is running attract mode continues work below, I don't know if I have explained myself well, does it do it to you too?
Code: [Select]
#include <Misc.au3>

While 1
If _IsPressed ("1B") Then
;MsgBox(0, '', "Button pushed")

> OpenBOR

executable           cmd
args                 /c cd C:\attract\EMU\OpenBOR\[name] & start OpenBOR.exe & start C:\attract\EMU\OpenBOR\wait_for_ESC.exe
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\OpenBOR
romext               <DIR>
system               Arcade
nb_mode_wait         3
exit_hotkey          Escape

NOTE: ESC-Key of AM doesn't work. So you need an external program like an autoit-script. Create wait_for_ESC.au3 and compile this sourcecode to .exe:

I liked this theme immediately, I saw it in action on batocera linux and I immediately thought of replicating it for AM, guys I tell you right away that I am not an expert in this language, but I'm starting to understand it and learn it, however, copying a bit the code from various themes I made this my first theme, if any language guru finds errors please tell me it is me with humility I will listen to it. in principle there should not be because everything works as I wanted, here is the theme in action

Hi everyone, I'm creating a personal theme, but I can't put the marquee behind the image of the cabinet, the images below better explain what I want to achieve, you can help me to do so thank you in advance.

Code: [Select]
if ( my_config["enable_marquee"] == "marquee" )
local marquee = fe.add_artwork("marquee", flx*0.0840, fly*0.0214, flw*0.415, flh*0.180 );
 marquee.trigger = Transition.EndNavigation;
 marquee.skew_y = 0;
 marquee.skew_x = 0;
 marquee.pinch_x = 0;
 marquee.pinch_y = 0;
 marquee.rotation = 0;
   if ( my_config["enable_Lmarquee"] == "Yes" )
    local shader = fe.add_shader( Shader.Fragment "bloom_shader.frag" );
marquee.shader = shader;
