Hi. I have two steam games problems. The first one is related to those "x" that I can't open the games. The second is related to the aspect ratio of videos that should be 16:9 but are 4:3. thanks

The red cross appears when AF can't find the file of the "rom", maybe in this case there's no rom file so you can disable that going in Options, Thumbnails and disable "Game not available indicator"

As far as the aspect ratio is concerned, it's a mistake I made in the system configuration file: you can edit the "data_systems.txt" file, look for the steam entry which is like this:

Code: [Select]
steam,0,0,STEAM,CRT,NONE,4,3,COMPUTER,Steam,null,Steam,null,null,null,null
And change it to this so the aspect will be derived from the video/snapshot:

Code: [Select]
steam,0,0,STEAM,CRT,NONE,0,0,COMPUTER,Steam,null,Steam,null,null,null,null
or this to force the aspect to 16/9:

Code: [Select]
steam,0,0,STEAM,CRT,NONE,16,9,COMPUTER,Steam,null,Steam,null,null,null,null

In AM options you can customize controls and assign hotkeys to "prev_display" and "next_display" signals, so it should be possible to assign them to triggers (you mean like L2/R2 shoulder buttons?)

Yup, L2/R2, I'll try it later, thanks.

Btw. this hue color frame option hard freezes AM+, and I couldn't find how to revert it manually in files so I had to reset everything.

Well that's not good, sorry for that. The value of hue should be a number between 0 and 358, and it should be robust enough as to fix errors in the entry values, but of course something went wrong in your case :( The easiest way to recover AF is to delete the prefs_layoutoptions.txt file, that will restart AF with "clean" default settings.

Arcadeflow 12.0 is out!

This version changes a lot of things in the game data management and is very "radical" therefore I suggest backing up your attract folder because, even if nothing bad should happen, better safe than sorry :D
The new features are an improved data management that allows propagation of all data (metadata and run data) from normal displays romlists to collection romlists, better scraping engine, better metadata editor.

Enjoy and report bugs!

Thanks for always updating this theme, it's my favorite. In this new version many bugs are occurring when adding more games and generating a new list, I almost always see this buggy screen. So I have to delete the romlist files and generate the list again to fix. Glad I followed your advice to make a backup of the attract mode folder hehehe

Thank you for the report, I'm investigating the issue but first of all, are you on Attract Mode or Attract Plus? Because at the moment there are issues with AM "classic" while AM+ should work better.
As far as adding or removing games to an _existing_ romlist, instead of going to AM menu and generate collection/romlist from there, you can go into Arcadeflow options and "refresh" the romlist, that will add games without messing with the new database system (hopefully). I'm still trying to figure out what happens with a new romlist, it gives me the same screen you get, but if I relaunch AM everything is back to normal...

If you have the time and will to test it, I've prepared a beta layout.nut that should fix the issue when creating a new romlist. The only scenario that is still giving issue at the moment is if you delete manually the romlist .txt file and you start the layout in the same display using that romlist. I'm gonna fix it too hopefully...

I'm using attract mode plus, from this link you posted here a few days ago.I tested the new option ''refresh romlist "and the list goes back to normal after the screen error I reported. I will test this layout.nut you posted to see what happens. Thank you for your support.

I tested the layout.nut that you sent, sometimes the error in the list of roms still happens, but just refresh the romlist and it is corrected. Another feature that I tested here and didn't work for me is to delete roms, the red X appears in the romlist, and the "deleted folder" is created in the roms folder, but the rom is not moved there.

I know, some scenarios are not fixed in the layout you have, but I hope I fixed it completely in my latest development version, going to release it soon...

I see, that might be a Windows issue (I develop and debug mostly on mac), if you run attractplus-console.exe you see some messages in the console when you delete a rom?

It seems the layout can't find the proper rom path, can you share the emulator .cfg file for that display? You can share it here, on the discord channel or send me an email to paolo.zago@gmail.com...
