I tried a different CFG file, but still got the same loading screen error.  Attached is my CFG file.
 I setup my system to do the layered structure is by having only consoles, arcade, handhelds, ect.. show up in the main screen.  Each of those goes to a rom list with the same name.  From there, those rom lists go to each systems rom lists.  I don't know if i explained this in a way that makes sense.
Displays menu=>Consoles menu(ROM list)=>Nintendo(ROM list)=>Game

If you still have issues, I'll need a log or the console output to debug.
I got the newest AM+ (ver201) as you suggested but it did not help.  I still have the same error.
 I attached the last run log file. There is a line saying "WARNING: some options in attract.cfg clash with Arcadeflow"

I have a nested type system so I don't know if that is causing issues.
AM starts at "all displays". From there consoles, arcade, hand helds, PC games, ect... can be picked.
once in a menu (ie consoles), then a sub category can be selected. (ie NES). Then a game can be picked.

Let me know if you want the attract.cfg file also.

Thanks for taking the time to look into this.

I'm having a hard time loading the theme.  If I set it as the "displays menu" theme I get a large message saying "don't use arcade flow as the displays menu layout".  When I set it as my theme for NES,  I get a large arcadeflow logo with a gray loading screen type of screen.  If I press "L" to get into the layout options menu,  all I get is the layout file name tab. 
I didn't see any special instructions in the read me file, so I put the arcadeflow folder into the themes folder. Im using AM+ with Windows 10. Anyone have any suggestions?

Scripting / PopUp.nut displaying image behind background
« on: March 04, 2023, 08:36:39 PM »
I want to have it that when I press a button it will display a help menu. I found an old thread here about doing just that using PopUp.nut. I did as the post said and it does display my image, but it's behind the background layer and every other layer instead of being right on top of everything. I can't seem to figure out how to change the Z order of the plugin image. I don't know if it matters but I'm using attract mode plus. Any help would be appreciated.

Here is the original thread

This is the script I used for popup.nut.
Code: [Select]
class UserConfig </ help="This plugin will show a popup image when the specified key is pressed." /> {
</ label="Image", help="The full path to the image that will be displayed", order=1 />
</ label="Key", help="The key that will display the image", is_input="yes", order=2 />
</ label="Hold Key", help="If enabled, you must hold the key down", options="Yes,No", order=3 />

class PopUpImage
        _image = null;
_key = null;
_hold = false;
_showing = false;
_key_delay = 250;
_last_check = 0;

local config = fe.get_config();
_image = fe.add_image( config["image"], 0, 0, fe.layout.width, fe.layout.height );
_image.preserve_aspect_ratio = true;
_key = config["key"];
_hold = config["hold"];
fe.add_ticks_callback( this, "on_tick" );

function on_tick( ttime )
local is_down = fe.get_input_state( _key );
if ( _hold == "Yes" )
_image.visible = is_down;
_showing = is_down;
} else
if ( is_down )
if ( ttime - _last_check > _key_delay )
_last_check = ttime;
_image.visible = !_showing;
_showing = !_showing;

fe.plugin[ "PopUpImage" ] <- PopUpImage();

General / Re: and ROM lists [SOLVED!]

A current version of AM. AM has been updated to work with changes.

I am running the newest version  v2.6.2.  I tried v2.6.1, and attractmode plus also.  After reading your post, I thought my system might be somehow causing an issue so I downloaded a fresh version of AM from this site and I get the same result.  Crashes every time I try to generate a list with thegamesdb.  If generate a list without gamesdb it makes the list without issues.


After a week of trying everything I can think of it just started working today.
  I guess the gamesdb API server was down.    >:(

General / Re: Generate romlist from .tag files

Hi, I know this is an old thread, but im trying to use your program, and Im not having any luck.  From the command prompt I can run it, but it doesn't freate a file called favorites.txt. I have a few games tagged in a few systems, and the .TAG files are in my romlist directory. I dont get any messages from the prompt either.  Im running Windows 10.  Any suggestions?

General / and ROM lists
« on: January 16, 2023, 04:37:21 PM »
I have been using attract mode for about five years now and I haven't needed to generate a ROM list for almost as log.  Im getting back into the scene and redoing/updating my setup.  It seems that thegamesbd. net  doesn't seem to work with attract mode for windows anymore. When I generate a list i get the windows blue ring of death and then it crashes. If i turn off info source/scraper it runs normally. My issue is that I like to have all the other info about the games that gamesdb would gather. (how many players, genres, ect..) I have tried on different days thinking that the server is down, but after some googling I found that the legacy server is off line. What are you guys using to build your ROM lists?

Thanks for any help.
