mvscomplete layout for AttractMode front end
by Keil Miller Jr Keil Miller Jr
mvscomplete is a layout for the AttractMode front end. It was designed because I was seeking a better option than the 161-in-1 multicart for the neo geo. The 161-in-1 multicart has an awful menu, missing games, and a bunch of hacks.
This layout is intended to be displayed at a minimum of VGA resolution (640x480) and will scale gracefully to any higher resolutions, including widescreen resolutions.
- AttractMode compatible device with AttractMode 2.3.0 or greater installed
- Mame/GroovyMame installed with corresponding neogeo roms and bios (to run neo geo games)
You may need to change file paths as necessary if your differs.
- Copy layout files to
- The Helpers module is v1.0.1 REQUIRED for you to install. The layout will not work correctly without it.
- The Shuffle module is v2.1.0 REQUIRED for you to install. The layout will not work correctly without it.
- The Shader module is v1.0.0 RECOMMENDED. Shader module is required if you intend to use crt shaders within the layout.
- The Leap plugin is OPTIONAL. Leap plugin helps to leap over empty filters. Whacky things happen if you have a favorites filter and no roms selected as a favorite!
- The FadeToGame plugin is OPTIONAL. FadeToGame will fade the screen when transitioning to and from a game. Be sure to set "To Game Run Time" to at least 1620 milliseconds if using Navigation Audio in mvscomplete.
- The Randtro intro is OPTIONAL. Select specific or random videos to use as an intro.
- Edit the following files to somewhat match below, or you may use the config menu (tab) inside AttractMode to enter the values. Do not forget to generate the rom index and history index (if being used) from the config menu.
