General / Which AM file is required for continual back-up on ongoing basis?
« on: November 17, 2022, 05:48:29 PM »
I have made a complete back-up of Attract Mode and roms, mame etc from the current configuration. As I continue to work on the cab, tweaking and adding to displays, is the only item I'll need to now continually / regularly back-up the config file? If I had to start again (and providing mame directories are set) would this config file be all I need to have a replaced / same as install?

See if this guide can be useful to you, at the time I forgot to change the language of AT from Italian to English, but you should understand.

Thank you so much

General / Is there a way to display tags as a text overlay on screen?

Scrolling through my games, I wanted to see if there was a quicker way of double-checking the set tags for a game, other than clicking through to the tag? Sometimes I use multiple tags and it would be great if current tags could be shown on each game page (that could be turned on or off). Is this possible?

Hi all - trying to create a games list for a display that shows only 3 or 4 player games. I thought that this would be reasonably simple, but I'm getting a list with some thousands of games! Any tips or advice please? Thanks so much - this is what I've created:

display   3 Players
   layout               nevato
   romlist              mame
   in_cycle             yes
   in_menu              yes
   filter               All
   filter               Favourites
      rule                 Favourite equals 1
   filter               "3 player"
      rule                 Players contains 3
