    That would introduce all sorts of complications with part payouts having to be stored when exiting or switching games etc The idea was to keep it as simple as possible.

    You can apply a custom tile/backdrop to a layout which is then saved in the fml file, or you can have generic ones that are applied to everything, also these are only used in the F2 and F3 full screen modes. So if you only like the Brick Wall effect for instance you can place that in the defaultbackdrops folder and only that would then be used.

    Regarding Landscape v Portrait and different screen resolutions, I think the image will have to be scaled to fit either height or width wise and the edges cropped to preserve the aspect ratio.

    Is that the effect you want to achieve?

    Here is a loud tiling example

    Yes you can use a tile image or a backdrop. An actual real arcade backdrop might be nice You can remove the black edges by making them a unique variation of black, and setting that colour as the transparent colour in background properties and checking transparent. Your version is out of date, so there may be a few issues.

    can you still get MFMEv5 to play older roms

    Yes use v5.1 to save the layout in the newer fml format and it will then run in 6.1+ although some will need a little tweaking. it can be found here: https://www.fruitemu.co.uk/ib/index.php?/topic/18524-mfme-v51-release-thread/

    Indeed, apart from paying for it 🙂

    It doesn't overwrite the old one, it installs to its own unique folder, and also has its own unique gamedb file.

    Nicely put, I think that sums it up perfectly.
  11. Wizard

    That is correct, but all previous fml based layouts will run on the Win 10 version.

    Thanks for all the offers, no worries if you are away on holiday or busy etc, as they say "real life always comes first" I have a fair few currently testing, so hopefully that will be enough to weed out any showstopper issues.

    Can anyone help me?

    I don't think so as he's not in edit mode. Looks like the Shrink To Fit to me. Very odd as this is defaulted to true if not found in the registry.

    " and going forward will only install/run under Windows 10 as some of the new functionality is only supported on that OS " Unfortunately not.
  15. Well I think it's time to get this out to a few people for final beta testing and if the feedback is positive I hope to release it before the end of the year, so time is ticking. The first 10 people ( Windows 10 only ) that pm me will get a copy, I expect feedback from the testing so if you aren't prepared to do that then don't apply. It's now all packaged up in a installer and going forward will only install/run under Windows 10 as some of the new functionality is only supported on that OS The biggest change is that now it uses hardware acceleration for the drawing/scaling which takes a large load off the main and emulation threads resulting in much better performance and no more pixel creep, artifacts etc It also now has a "Check for Updates" button that will download any future updates automatically, making it easier to maintain hopefully. The version number is v18.0 ( which reflects the year of issue and won't clash with any past releases) Bear in mind that any layout saved with this version won't then run on any previous versions! and please read the history.txt file for the list of changes/fixes or click the logo in the about box for just the latest changes in this update. This version will also require a database rescan. I'd also like to take the opportunity to wish all members a Happy New Year Chris
