Arrm (Another Recalbox Roms Manager)


  • 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)

    • Typing on a letter in the database (if sorted in alphabetical order), positions the index on the first name of game found starting with this letter (request from Zing forum Recalbox)
    • Following the deletion of Rom, the index is positioned on the next element and does not come back to the beginning of the list (request from Zing forum Recalbox)
    • System Sorting / The sorting of the es_systems.cfg is now possible on Retropie.
    • Added a 'retropie' checkbox to launch the 'Stop and Reboot EmulationStation' scripts, to manage the specificities of overlays Retropie, and the SystemSorter specified to Retropie (request of morenr1 on the retropie forum)
    • Can retrieve and create overlays configuration files for Recalbox, Batocera and Retropie
    • Added a 'filter duplicate games' button on the Game name or on the file name which allows to filter the Roms whose name of the game or the file name (without extension) appears on other Roms. Example for ARRM: 1943 and 1943kai will be listed as duplicated because 1943 appears in 1943kai (thanks to Zing for testing)
    • 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)
    • Add a "Europe Media" checkbox to retrieve Europe's special media if present. (Lucinda's request on recalbox forum)
    • Added an 'SS Media' checkbox to force SS media recovery (specifically created by Screenscraper)
    • Added a checkbox 'add country' that adds the country, at the end of the game name, if this information is present in the name of the rom file.
        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)
    • His played (Back to the Future locomotive) at the end of a scrap. The sound can be activated via a checkbox 'Its end scrap' in the tab 'General options' (request of Kevinnash forum Recalbox).
    • Line breaks and tabs are taken into account in the textbox 'description'. (bug brought back by Zing)
    • Backup paths for overlay images, overlay configuration files and input_overlay 'can be set via a config file
    • Fixed inconsistencies in media search (by country) using API v2
    • Change the path to recover the original es_systems.cfg file on Batocera v5.21
    • Fixed a bug when validating a nonexistent screenscraper account
    • Added additional information about ScreenScraper user account (screenscraper login module)
    • Remove redundant 'add disk / tape / side' button with 'Check Roms' which already applies the following checkboxes: 'Clean Name', 'Add Disk', 'Keep Rom Name', 'Add Country'
    • Fixed bug on auto-assignment of template with 'Recompose image'
    • Fixed various bugs
    • Adding an Amstrad GX4000 template

  • CRT Hero

    @appa84 Hi sent you a file in pvt chat


  • CRT Hero

    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.
    Only occurs with new users


  • CRT Hero

    @appa84 bug fixed. Online application updated. You can download it again

    @nexusone13 Hello!
    Bonne nouvelle pour le thème Next Pixel puisque plusieurs personnes me l'on demandé. Je n'ai pas encore eu l'occassion d'utiliser ARRM et du coup c'est intégrer directement dans l'outil? y'a il possibilité de charger un mix externe, je peux éventuellement créer les mix adapté pour ARRM de mon coté, à discuter ensemble ce qui est le mieux.


  • CRT Hero

    @myst j'ai crée manuellement les mix appropriés listés dans ton fichier next_pixel.xml. Je reprends ton tes .png et je fais un petit .xml perso interprétable par arrm (j'ai fait divers templates pour ARRM visible ici : http://www.jujuvincebros.fr/wiki/arrm/doku.php?id=templates_available_fr). Si jamais tu sors d'autres mix, n'hésite pas à me le faire savoir que je crée le .xml associé. Et encore félicitations pour ton superbe thème.



  • next pixel et pour moi le meilleur thème pour revalbox , aucun autre thème n a été aussi beau pour moi , franchement tu a fait un thème qui tue et tous mes potes sont étonné de voir mon odroid xu4 avec une aussi belle interface

    @virus-man merci ça fait plaisir!
    @nexusone13 ok alors du coup tu utilises la version 1080p du mix et ça ira très bien pour les pc et odroid mais ceux qui ont un raspberry vont rapidement se plaindre de pb mémoire je pense. Y a t'il une option dans ARRM pour resizre les mix généré? sinon il faudra décliner le mix pour chaque package, en fait actuellement suivant le package que tu télécharges 1080/720/480/crt/crt_small le xml du mix est adapté à sa taille.
    A voir si on peut trouver une solution sur ce point à l'avenir.



  • @nexusone13 :
    je viens de tester en suivant tes indications pour le template ( copier +coller) mais les snap video ne fonctionne pas pour moi.
    ps: super boulot a tous les 2, bosser en colab pour nous pondre un RB d'enfer!


  • CRT Hero

    Bonjour @lecureuil38
    As-tu bien coché la case 'Récupérer la video (Video Tag)' dans l'onglet 'Images options' lorsque tu as scrapé ?


  • CRT Hero

    @myst les mix générés font un peu moins de 300 ko en 1260x1080



  • chez moi tout fonctionne nickel , je peux le dire car j ai fait pas mal de test pour nexusone13 et même en 720p ca fonctionne nickel


  • Tester
    Themer

    @nexusone13 Allors attention je parle de pb memoire GPU et pas de pb de stockage, du coup c'est une histoire de resolution et pas de poid de fichier.
