Re: Arcadeflow theme v 14.5 [Release] Updated 8 September 2022
« Reply #1485 on: September 19, 2022, 04:43:37 AM »
So I have had AF installed on my cabinet for a while, it was running version 11.0.  I didn't realize that I hadn't turned on the auto-update option, so when it would prompt me that there was a new version available, it would be downloaded but not installed.  I tried to update to 14.5, and all I see on the screen is black.  Thinking I'd hosed something up, I copied my entire AttractMode folder to a backup location, and started from scratch, newly unextracted AM 2.62, .exe files for AM+, and a new download of AF 14.5, but the same thing happens, when I select AF as my display, all I see is a black screen with a couple of white spots.  If I select the Basic or Cools, or some other theme, they work.  Any thoughts on what I'm going wrong?

You are probably using the "release" version of AM+, while you should download the latest stable build. If you already have a github account you can get it from here:

https://github.com/oomek/attractplus/actions/runs/2985758087

Scroll at the bottom of the page and you should see download links for the artifacts. Don't use the old folder structure: AM+ will recreate that when you run the executable. If you can't access that section on github you can download the latest windows build here:

http://www.mixandmatch.it/AF_WIP/WindowsMXE-static.zip

New versions of Arcadeflow are developed with the latest stable build of AM+ in mind, taking advantage of all the new features implemented. Let me know if this fixes your issues :)

Arcadeflow 14.6 is out!

I think the main new feature here is RetroArch integration. AF will allow you to change the core associated with an emulator, and edit the .cfg file accordingly. It should work on every system as long as you keep RA installed in its default directory, or you can specify RA and cores custom folders.

Enjoy!

What's new:
- It is now possible to change RA cores from AF UI
- Added option to enable RetroArch integration
- Fixed issue with multifilter jumps

Hello. Is it possible to leave the videos in vertical format (9:16)?

I'm not sure I get what you mean by leaving the videos in vertical formats: it should adapt the video thumbnail to the video aspect ratio. If you mean you are using a "vertical arcade" cabinet with 9:16 thumbnails, there's an option to optimize the layout for this situation, I think it's under the "Thumbnails" section

Videos are not in the correct aspect ratio.

Oh, now I get it! Your videos are vertical with the same aspect as the snaps. But AF gets the aspect of videos from the system data, and in the case of arcade it adapts them to the orientation. I'll see if I can add an option in the new version, but at the moment you can do a quick patch: open the file data_systems.txt and look for a line that has your system name (it should be arcade or mame or fbneo depending on your emulator setting)

The line should look like this:

Code: [Select]
arcade,0,0,ARC,CRT,NONE,-4,3,ARCADE,Various,null,Arcade,75,rom,null,null
change it into this:

Code: [Select]
arcade,0,0,ARC,CRT,NONE,0,0,ARCADE,Various,null,Arcade,75,rom,null,null
That will prevent auto-adapting the aspect to 4:3 based on the orientation, and just use the snaps/video file aspect.

In your setup, you are using the vertical snapshot as "boxart", right? I don't remember how the trick worked :D

Don't work.

Ok, I'll need a deeper debug then, can you share the .cfg file of the emulator you are using for vertical arcade?

Also, try this change and tell me if it works: look for this line

Code: [Select]
tilez[i].AR.vids = getAR(tilez[i].offset,tilez[i].vidsz,0,false)
and change to

Code: [Select]
tilez[i].AR.vids = 9.0/16.0
