VIDEO SCREENSAVER - Black Screen with OMX on and Controls Not working
@pjft Thank you for taking the time and looking into it!
@2play Correct - but you don't use custom images when using the video screensaver.
I think I just fixed it - can you build emulationstation-dev from source and see if it works now?
Thanks for troubleshooting this, and getting to the bottom of it.
@pjft will compile and test.
Reverting. Happy I can be of help as it was troubling me and thought im losing my mind :D
compiled dev ES from source
Everything works as supposed to!
Starts game even with Custom Images = TRUE
RIGHT and SELECT changes video. START starts game
RIGHT changes image, LEFT/BACK exits Custom Images
If game images are enabled then START also starts game!
Thank you again. Its nice we got at the bottom of it!
By the way I love the new loading settings of ES.
I liked also to see the total systems loaded on regular build. When manually start ES from CLi
@2play Thanks for checking, glad we could sort it out.
I discovered something else that not working correclty on the emulationstation-dev binary.
Do you want me to post as an issue on git or here start new thread?
@2play New thread and tag me there (or post link here). Thanks.
@pjft hi there
any plan to apply the fix to the current stable release?
last working on out of the box is 2.9.3
as posted the dev one has the prob fixed with video but has other probs as showing all rom extensions in a system. even though they are removed from es_systems file
If i have in es_systems only lets say chd (lower case) it will also display the upper case ones CHD
otherwise it would be ok
@2play one thing doesn't influence the other, to be honest, but I'd rather solve the issue you're facing on dev. Last time you stated you were going to dig into the logs and debug options and then update - any news there?
I will look into how these graduate to stable at some point, but it's unrelated.
@pjft i hear you but there must be a diferrence in the dev code
as 2.9.4 installed handles extensions ok
but dev not and its just the binary changed
I havent looked more into the ES dev as i have removed it when discovered the extension prob and needed to work on something else.
Latest weird thing happens now , is that video snaps dont play sound unless OMX HW is enabled. Videoscreensaver has no sound whatever i tried. I m using 2.9.3 at the moments as its the last ES that I can start the game from VSCR.
Im checking one at a time but everytime something fixed something else happens. I have latest OS updates, April FW
Ill post more. I ll put back 2.9.6 to do more testing on the sound things
PS i ll test more ES dev but that extensions prob displays rom counts and roms incorrectly
