Themes / Gun Game Theme Discussion
« on: June 16, 2017, 07:03:07 AM »
Hey guys,
I have been running AM with groovymame on one of my cabs for a while now. I figured AM is a good option for this next project I will be working on. I am running  through ideas on a theme that would fit a gun game cabinet. I have a Target Terror Gold cab with a trisync CRT. It currently runs the game dedicated now. I am planning to also set this cab up with a PC running arcade shooters in it as well.

For theme I was originally thinking something like a 3x3 tile type arrangement showing the marquees or video snaps and then have a next/previous page button too. The game list won't be huge as there aren't nearly the amount of gun games as other games out there.  The thought was shoot the game you wanted to play and launch it. This is assuming the guns act like a mouse in windows, which I believe they should based on my research.

That's my rough draft idea. Would like to get feedback from other on how to make this work well.

I understand bezels as the art around the monitor. These would only show while in game and would be enabled in the mame.ini configuration.

Very cool!

Ah from what you have in your first post it looks like you are trying to avoid xp not retain it. If you have a spare hard drive, just swap them out in your cab pc and try it all with win 7 and see if it works ok?

Personally, I think windows 7 is really worth it. With a SSD and the other speediness advantages, it works well.

I run win 7 with attract mode and groovymame on my cab with a tri sync monitor. I think I still have AM 1.5 range and groovy is somewhere in the .152 range. I haven't gotten around to trying out some of the new versions on the cab.

Here is a link to a pack of art. I make no claims it is 100%. The game list I use on my cab is all covered now though. Feel free to grab it.!pchECYKY!fZ_YHY2dpNH_USHBZXKdQA

Awesome that you posted these man. Does anyone need a regular pack posted? Mine is pieced together from that big hyperspin 90gb file that was floating around. I added some missing pieces along the way too. We could post them up together.

I like it man. I have been running an older version of spinwheel for a few of my lists for a while now. The one thing I tweaked was remove the emulator logo and put in the list name at the top. So it says "Fighters", "Beat 'em Up" etc. This looks nice.

I think the files need to be unzipped and in one of the supported file formats in order to work. Also the file name should match up with a rom.

Any chance you updated this theme with the piece akafox mentioned? I like the  bg2 but it doesn't let you do that with the listbox off.

I think that is not a bad feature, but may be better as an option rather than the default behavior.

Is there a way to ignore the second monitor altogether? I have two monitors on my desktop. I have tried full screen, fill screen, and window. Even window mode still leaves a big black box on the right side as that is where my second monitor lives via windows. The multimon plugin seems to be for the marquee on a secondary display.

(And I'm now on a full Linux desktop, with only Windows on the cabinet due to the input lag issue with SDL...)

Spotted something irritating with the global filter. It applies to favourites. A good chunk of my favourites are clones. So they get filtered out by the global cloneof filter.

I've shifted cloneof back into my category filters rather than global, wondering if anyone has any better ideas? Almost want favourites to be a special case that bypasses all other filters.

Superfavorites maybe?
