For people using Windows 7 64 bit (my setup) , if you want auto update feature you should download https://curl.se/windows/ and put the files of 64 bit version under system32 directory (i put under syswow64 and was not working)

In this way AM will be able to execute command to update itself (for automatic update you should flag on this feature under AM's options)

AFAIK, but I don't have a Pi to test, no it doesn't work. I think it might work on the Pi4 but probably not at full speed.

this theme is the most amazing for attract, congratulations! I have a little problem; when I use windows 10 or Arch linux I can download the arts and videos by scrape and xml import normally. But when I use windows 7 X64 I can't download anything from scrape. It gets stuck in the search screen. Are there any special procedures I should do? Do you have any idea how I can fix this?

This happens because AF uses curl to access internet, but curl is not available in Windows 7. You can try what @cybermat from the forum did some days ago: downloading curl.exe for your version of windows and put it in a path folder. From @cybermat message: "if you want auto update feature you should download https://curl.se/windows/ and put the files of 64 bit version under system32 directory (i put under syswow64 and was not working)"
I don't have a Win7 test system, but hopefully that will fix the issue...

You can change the sort order in the utility menu of Arcadeflow, but at the moment there's no way to keep the sort order of a "custom ordered" romlist. It shouldn't be difficult to code a "sort as romlist" option, so I'll try to add it in the next release, although I think it will clash a bit with the letters markers at the bottom of the scroll bar. But that's a minor annoyance... so stay tuned :)

In the meantime for a quick and dirty workaround, and if you don't mind some file editing, you can open the layout.nut file inside arcadeflow folder, search for this line:

Code: [Select]
z_listsort(z_list.orderby,z_list.reverse)
and comment it changing it to:

Code: [Select]
// z_listsort(z_list.orderby,z_list.reverse)
This will disable AF sorting completely and should show your list in the order you have it saved in the romlist file.

Loving the theme so far! I'd like to make a feature request if possible. I'm building a vertical cabinet using a monitor tilted on its side. It would be great to use arcade machine images as the preview images. But even in vertical adaptive mode, the images are still squished. I think the images would basically be 16:9 but vertical flipped. This allows for the marquee, bezels, and controllers or coin doors to be shown on screen. It would be awesome to use this image format as previews with ArcadeFlow!

Here are some examples of some of the screenshots I am looking to use.

Here is a video overview of the project, and the website. All of the full arcade machine bezels are in 4k with retroarch and mame layout files.

Interesting request! Actually I think the images are squished because the layout try to adapt them to 4:3 or 3:4 recognizing you are in an arcade romlist. I'll see if I can add a switch to force disable the AR adaptation, but I think the best way should be this: configure AM so that those images are used as "flyer" artwork instead of snap, and switch Arcadeflow to boxart mode, this should stop trying to adapt the AR...

That worked. Thank you! Once I get everything set up, I might have a few suggestions or small feature requests (things like closer zoom options) to really help this format shine using your amazing theme!
