No error messages, just "attract mode not responding". All the .db1/.db2 files are present in the romlist dir so I don't think it generates them.
Even when I change only 1 romlist layout in attract.cfg it still hangs when opening that romlist
The console says:

*** Initializing display: 'Sega SG-1000'
 - Loaded master romlist 'Sega SG-1000' in 17 ms (43 entries kept, 0 discarded)
 - Constructed 2 filters in 0 ms (86 comparisons)

And that's it. I have been waiting for 10 minutes and nothing - still in hung state.

Hmmm at this point I should take a look at your attract.cfg and the pref_layoutoptions file from Arcadeflow folder…

Is there a place to download old versions? Github page only shows 13.2 as the lowest and your website links are dead.

First things first, there was a bug in the Arcadeflow website, now you can go here https://zpaolo11x.github.io/Arcadeflow/history.html and download old versions from the old repository.

Then I'm looking into your attract.cfg, the first thing you need to change is:
Code: [Select]
startup_mode         displays_menu
Arcadeflow should not be used with display menu startup mode, you should change this value to "default". You can run the displays menu at start changing options in Arcadeflow.

You also have this set:
Code: [Select]
menu_layout          Arcade Flow 5.7but for the same reason stated above, you should not set AF as menu layout, just leave this field empty.

Maybe this changes are enough to fix the issue... another thing I notice from your attract.cfg is that you have a lot of "collection" romlist like "last played", "console" etc. With the new database system AF is a bit picky for collection romlists: let's say you have a collection romlist that has games from multiple emulators. Everything will work fine only if there are also single romlist for each emulator. So if you have a "console" collection romlist with all games from SNES and Genesis, and you have SNES.cfg and Genesis.cfg, AF will be happy only if you have also the romlists SNES.txt and Genesis.txt. I know it's complicated, but working around this is even more complicated :D

Consider that AF already categorizes systems (console, computer ecc) automatically, and you can even enable "all games collections" in AF options menu. These are auto-updating collections for all games, latest played, favourite and system categories. The difference between AM collections and AF collections is that AF collections are "live": if you add a tag to a game in the SNES display, you'll see the same game starred in the "All Console Games" collection, or in the "Last Played" collection etc.

Arcadeflow 14.0 is out!

Apart from some minor improvements and bug fixes, this version introduces a huge performance boost for lower spec systems. By suspending surfaces redraw when not needed, this version made my N5105 with integrated GPU run at 60 fps at 1080p (instead of 720p as before). You'll need the latest build of Attract Mode Plus to enjoy the improved performance.

Enjoy!

You can download 14.0 from here: https://github.com/zpaolo11x/Arcadeflow/releases/tag/14.0 download the "Source code (zip)", unpack it in its own folder and place it into Layouts folder.

Thank  you a lot!! it's just a little bit slow with me.

Just a question 2 questions :

- Arcadeflow ask me to set at 0 'image_cache_mbytes '. Do you know why?

- The list is empty and I don't know why! I tried with game boy roms (861 roms):

# Generated by Attract-Mode Plus v2.6.2
#
executable           M:\RetroArch\retroarch.exe
args                 -L M:\RetroArch\cores\vbam_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath              M:\Roms\Nintendo Game Boy\roms
romext               .gb;.zip;.7zip;.rar
system               Nintendo Game Boy
info_source          thegamesdb.net
artwork    boxart          M:\Roms\Nintendo Game Boy\roms\boxart
artwork    cartart         M:\Roms\Nintendo Game Boy\roms\cartart
artwork    flyer           
artwork    marquee         
artwork    snap            M:\Roms\Nintendo Game Boy\roms\snap
artwork    wheel           M:\Roms\Nintendo Game Boy\roms\wheel

I attached the config file and the last run! Thank you for your help!!!

Well, image cache in Attract Mode has some issues, for layouts that use a lot of graphics and loads them often, keeping it enabled gives a lot of errors like disappearing fonts and images, so it's better to disable it by setting that parameter to 0.

There's an "Error opening romlist: Game Boy" in your log, even before loading AF, so it seems there's something wrong in your setup. Maybe you can share the romlist .txt file so I can take a look. Also you can try deleting .db1 and .db2 files in the romlist folder to restart the AF database creation.

Thx!

I'll set it to 0. I'll see if AF leaks.

I'll delete the dB file too. To generate the dB file again I have juste to generate the rom list in AF?

Db files are regenerated at launch if they are missing .

Hi,

thx it's works!
It's just strange because the snap and title don't display (see the sreenshot)

rompath              M:\Roms\Nintendo Game Boy\roms
romext               .gb;.zip;.7zip;.rar
system               Nintendo Game Boy
info_source          thegamesdb.net
artwork    boxart          M:\Roms\Nintendo Game Boy\roms\boxart
artwork    cartart         M:\Roms\Nintendo Game Boy\roms\cartart
artwork    flyer
