ok, I understand your point of view.

I was just thinking about the participatory development side.
For a project as important as the yaron collection, it was for me the best solution. It's not a simple theme, but a complete collection that could still grow.

But I understand that it can generate problems.

Let's forget

I would wait and see what Yaron says, he might like the idea, he might not.

I just gave my point of view, but as it is not my theme, it has nothing to do with me, it is down to the theme creator.

It was good of you to ask first, rather than setting up a GH and not asking. So just see what Yaron says when he is on next.

Regards

Mark

Here another video from start to finish with the attract mode consoles open and I am not expert on reading the error code of AM + so I made a video to show you the command line showing on the left side and  AM+ Screen on the right side while I was setting up the theme for the mame emulator.

Here the video to show what is truly happening

Usually when the theme won't show up like that, there's a script error to be found in the log file (or console). From your video I see the important part, the script error:

"the index 'ReadTextFile' does not exist"

I'm not familiar with the specific issue, but I think ReadTextFile is part of the "file" module, which I think would normally be located in modules/file.nut. Maybe there is a problem with that module, or it isn't where it is expected to be.

That video doesn't show an attractmode install?
Even for attractmode+, you still need the base install of attractmode as attractmode+ is just two exe files (main and console) and nothing else.

You need to install the full AM/AM+ package and copy ontop of it the collection.
You can't use the collection as a standalone.
