Scripting / Re: LEDSpicer Emitter Plugin
« on: December 17, 2020, 02:44:16 AM »
Hi. I've got this installed and all seems OK but there's no rom profiles set up. There is a gameData.xml file that comes with LEDSpicer but I don't think that's useable in the way your plugin needs it. Do we have to create all the profiles for each game manually?

Also, does this work with Retroarch or do I have to use a standalone MAME emulator?


Scripting / Is it possible to call another program from an AM plugin?
« on: December 17, 2020, 01:23:52 AM »
Hi. I'm using LEDSpicer to light up my LEDs but I can't for the life of me figure out how to tell it to restart the set of animations I've given it. The author seems to have gone cold on the the net atm, so I'm stumped. I thought I could create an animation set that would last for 2 minutes and then get an AM plugin to restart the profile that LEDSpicer uses to play those animations. I know how to wait a certain amount of time in the plugin and I know how to get it to randomly decide if it should restart the profile. My problem is how to actually call the program from in the plugin.

The command line to restart the profile is

Code: [Select]
LoadProfile ProfileName
This is the code I have so far, it runs every 20 minutes. Is it even possible to do with with a plugin in AM? I'm on a RASPBERRY PI 4 BTW with Raspbian.

Code: [Select]
restartPlugin = randInt(10);

if (restartPlugin < 2)
 // Use LoadProfile command line command to restart the profile

Thanks for the reply. I'll keep an eye on the other project to see if there's any movement. Cheers.

Is AM officially coming to the Pi 4 at all? Not trying to pressure anyone to get it done, just wondered if that was on the road map for the application.

Do you know of a step-by-step guide to getting it installed and running?

Hi. Trying to find a way to install AM on a Pi 4 but having problems atm.

I know it's not in the experimental list of Retropie yet so I'm looking at doing it manually. I don't mind what OS us used, Retropie or Raspian Buster. Does anyone know if a step-by-step guide to getting it going, if it's possible?

I managed to find a config files online and created it myself. AM works perfectly now. Don't know why it wouldn't create it. Tried it different compatibility modes, admin rights, different drives, folders ... everything I could think of. Weird.

Thanks for the help.

Just installed RetroPie and Emulationstation on my Pi 4 and wanted to add AM to RP. I've read online that I should be able to add it through the experimental packages list on RP but AM isn't on there. Is it not yet support on RP for Pi 4? If not, is there another way to add it to RP manually?

Thanks for replying.

I'm using the latest version of AM > 2.6.1

Things to look at:
- video mode | AM--> Configuration-->General-->Window Mode = <try them all to see if any work>
- correct/latest video drivers
- correct/latest directx installed
- correct/latest Microsoft Visual C++
- try different layout/theme to test (not all layouts work with all versions of AM)
- run the "console.exe" version of AM to see what the errors are

I can't set the video mode because I can't get past the language select screen.
I have the latest Nvidia Drivers
Also have the latest DirectX and C++
Can't change the theme, not getting that far into the program
Ran both versions of the program, no difference.

It seems to be an issue with the config file and the fact it's not being created. Can anyone send me a default file so I can try creating it myself and seeing if that helps?

Hi. When I run AM it starts up to the language select screen but nothing happens. I can't move to select a language and as soon as I press ENTER it drops to the desktop. If I check the LAST_RUN.LOG file it says

Code: [Select]
Attract-Mode v2.6.1 (Windows, SFML 2.5.1 +SWF +7z +Curl)

Problem is, it DOESN'T create the attract.cfg at all, so when I run it, I get the same problem. I've tried the daily build, running on different drives and folders, and setting it to run in administrator mode, but nothing works. I have an ATI Ryzen CPU and a NVidia 1080ti GPU with 16GB of RAM

Here's a video of what happens -

Does anyone have a fix? Thanks.
