Scripting / Is it possible loading different language of romlist file?
« on: March 26, 2021, 01:57:11 AM »
It means, we can select the language of game name in theme options.

For example, we prepare 2 language files called mame_en.txt & mame_jp.txt in romlists folder. When I select English in oprion that will be loading mame_en.txt. Next, select Japanese, it will be loading mame_jp.txt. Thanks.

General / Smoothly playing video format in AM
« on: August 23, 2020, 08:03:21 PM »
I always facing a lag or jump frame issue in AM to play video. Some people said it is releated of video resolution. But I try to change it to small resolution, it is also not working. Finially, I got how to fix it. It is not related of resolution, it is related of fps of video.

The best format is 23.98 fps, if the video is higher it like as 29.9 fps. The lag or jump issue will be appeared. If you want to fix it, reencode the video to 23.98 fps, the resolution can keep it.

This is my experience. Thanks.
