Can I make certain URL to open with attractmode?
« on: September 02, 2021, 06:23:50 PM »
I would like to make attractmode to open certain URL with web browsers as full screen, and would like to add somekinda wheel image to each URL.

For example, I want to make romlist of these(so that it would be on wheel)
1. Youtube
2. Netflix
3. News

In my attractmode, and I would like my chrome or firefox to be my “emualtor” can someone help me what would be the tweak I have to make?

-install Add-On 'AutoFullscreen'. Here

-install Add-On 'Shortkeys'. Here
choose an exit button or key combination, to exit Firefox. For example the ESC key:
Open Firefox > Extras > Add-Ons > Shortkeys > Settings (three dots/points) > Shortcut : escape > Label : Close Firefox > Behavior : Close window > Active while inputs > All Sites > Save shortcuts

>Shortcuts to specific website:
-create three folders : YOUTUBE, NETFLIX, NEWS

-on desktop : press right mouse button > New > Shortcut > path : > Name : ATTRACTMODE

-copy .url files to belonging folder. For example : C:\attract\EMU\YOUTUBE\ROMS

create a display for YOUTUBE:
Code: [Select]
executable           cmd
args                 /c start firefox.exe -url "[romfilename]"
workdir              C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\YOUTUBE\ROMS\
romext               .url
system               Arcade
nb_mode_wait         1
exit_hotkey          Escape
artwork    marquee         C:\attract\scraper\YOUTUBE\marquee
artwork    snap            C:\attract\scraper\YOUTUBE\video;C:\attract\scraper\YOUTUBE\flyer

-create Romlist

-scrape Artwork

open Artwork-Folders and copy your Artwork depending to url-filenames (ATTRACTMODE.url => ATTRACTMODE.png).
Code: [Select]
