It plays videos from the current romlist/filter in random order. It's zoomed because each game shows only a certain number of scanlines from the middle of the screen. Sometimes this can be an issue if your videosnaps have an higher resolution than what was the original game resolution (e.g. mame snaps in full HD resolution, for console games it should be correct). Can you share a screenshot of the zoomed-in view, and some details about your video file? BTW a bit of zooming is "by design".

I do confirm this is what it's occurring, I've got Mame video snaps in full HD resolution.
Unfortunately, a screenshot is not obvious to take during attract mode screensaver, but it is exactly as you described.

Is there any work around this issue ?
Or it is how the attract mode screensaver was coded ?

Thanks zpaolo11X,

You should see control graphics overlayed on the history page, like in this picture. Many games don't have "per button" information so you'll just see the controller type and number of buttons.
If you don't see this, you can send me your command.dat file and I'll take a look, since there are a couple different syntax to take care of... if you can't share the file here, my mail is

So this is indeed working.

I think my expectations were to high, I though I would see a complete command list as in the Mame Tab menu.

Another question, is it possible to suppress or make the Arcade Flow logo moving during attract mode (screensaver).
On CRT screen this is better to avoid any screen burns.

How is attract mode (screensaver) working ? Are videosnaps displayed in random order ?
On my side, it seems videosnaps are zoom in exesssively and there no way to even guess which games it is.

Many thanks in advance for all your replies and I am really impress by all the work done on arcadeflow.

This theme is really a masterpiece, keep up the great work !

The only thing I can't succeed to use is the command.dat settings available in the History settings.
The command.dat path and generation have been setup successfully, but then how am I suppose to display it within the frontend ?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

N.B.: History.dat displays successfully by the way.

Thanks in advance
