  • Salut,

    A défaut d'avoir à ce jour une version Arrm compatible avec Linux, j'ai testé la version sur Windows voici mon retour :

    Une interface graphique sur un seul onglet avec toutes les fonctions c'est un très bon choix.

    Des infos bulles pour nous guider sur les choix c'est très bien. (prise en main assez simple après quelques minutes)

    Un accès simple et intuitif au share/rom distant de Recalbox.

    J'ai d'abord testé sur un dossier avec peu de roms pour essayer différents réglages (nombreux, variés et très satisfaisants).

    Le résultat des recherches ne m'a pas retournés d'erreurs sur l'affichage des images mix ou sur le nom des roms.

    L’édition automatisé des gamelist dans le répertoire correspondant est géniale. On nous laisse le choix de remplacer le gamelist existant ou pas pour finaliser le résultat.

    Les raccourcis à l’écran pour visualiser les dossiers des roms c'est parfait.

    A ce jour c'est l'application de scrap externe qui me convient le mieux et la plus aboutie.

    Bravo et merci @nexusone13 (Franck) ainsi que les premiers utilisateurs et testeurs qui permettent de faire progresser le développement de cette application.

    Je suis très reconnaissant de votre investissement.


  • CRT Hero

    @p0cth un grand merci pour ce retour. Sincèrement 🙂

  • CRT Hero

    @jorgemagana Hi,
    In your example, The boxart (wor) is the one displayed on your screenshot.
    On 'screenscraper' there is another boxart available boxart (SS) : (SS) media are specifically created by 'screenscraper', but are not 'official' if I understood correctly.
    I'm working on a new release with a ' Force SS media' checkbox (another one 🙂 ) to force ARRM to grab (SS) media. I'll send you a beta version on pvt chat.
    For now you can check the 'Box 3D' to display a boxart which look nicer 🙂



  • @nexusone13 Thanks for your answer, I found a solution doing this:

    1. Select "Show mix model"

    2. Select "Edit XML file"

    3. Delete "boxart" in Data- Element-Layer4

    I got the "arcade profile" image!

    0_1556734428675_abcop_screenscraper_mix_arrm.png


  • CRT Hero

    @jorgemagana Well done 🙂
    I thought you still wanted the boxart. I misunderstood 🙂
    I advise you to create your own mix, by copying the directory of this mix under another name and editing as you did the data of the xml, and especially by changing the name of the mix in this tag <name>Arcade Profile</name>. Because during an uninstall of the application to install a new version, the original mixes are replaced, but not the mixes created by the user.



  • @nexusone13 ok, thanks!

    Hi All

    New version available : 1.7.5.2 (05/14/2019)

    • Added a 'Screen Title' checkbox to get the game's Screen Title instead of the screenshot. If checked, it can be used as a Screenshot or in the Mix. (request of ExarKunIv on Retropie forum)

        If the MD5 of the game is filled in, ARRM can retrieve on screenscraper the information of the Country of Rom, during a scrap or during a 'Verif name via MD5' (API V2 only)). With the MD5 the country information will be more complete.
    • Tag Marquee and Video are now written in the gamelist.xml, in order to use these features in Batocera v5.21 and Retropie.
    • Textbox to indicate a way for the videos (request of morenr1 forum retropie)
    • If the mode '4 images' is not selected, only the tags 'image', 'video' and 'marquee' are now saved (previously boxart, screenshot, marquee, mix, cartridge were saved in the gamelist.xml) (request from kevinnash forum Recalbox)

    For those having trouble launching the application, here is a workaround (have to fix that soon). Grab this file (registry key) i found the bug, some trouble creating registry key. Get this one : http://dl.free.fr/nHWkEIygo
    unzip it and register .reg file, then launch app.. Some trouble with the new version creating the reg key. I'll work on that very soon and release a bug free version.
