Video Tutorial

Voir video

They look like this:

This ' Video+Overlay ' functionality requires that the media are already present in the database (boxart, cartridge, wheel, video …).
ARRM will compose a mix (without screenshot) with the media already present, which it will superimpose on the video by applying a template proposed by ARRM.
It is therefore necessary that the ' 4 images ' mode of ARRM has been activated beforehand during your scrapes.

This feature uses ARRM templates.

Templates offering screenshots in perspectives are incompatible.

A directory dedicated to these ' Video+Overlay ' can be defined in the ' Folder ', '' Videomix 'folder ' tab.

It is also possible to assign this video to VIDEO TAG, by checking ' Video+Overlay → Video TAG ' in the ' Scrap Options ' tab.

Specific compression settings for these video+overlay are available in the ' Tools ' tab.


  • Select the Roms to process

  • Click on the button 'Video+Overlay'

the video file created will bear the name of the game or the rom file suffixed with ' -mixvideo ' and will be copied into the directory dedicated to 'Video + Overlay' defined in the ' Folder ' tab, ' 'Videomix' folder '

A ' template_association_video.txt ' file is used to associate ARRM templates with systems when creating 'video + overlay'. It can be edited by clicking on the icon

A folder reserved for video templates has been created, it is located in the directory: '%appdata%\Nexouille soft\arrm\ressources\templates_video\'

By default the new template ' mix_video1 ' is associated with all systems.

A ' template_association_video.NEXT_PIXEL ' file is included containing the associations for the templates of the NEXT_PIXEL theme. Rename it to ' template_association_video.txt ' if you want to use it.

You can retrieve the usual ARRM templates located in '%appdata%\Nexouille soft\arrm\ressources\templates\', copy them to the directory '%appdata%\Nexouille soft\arrm\ressources\templates_video\' and modify them to suit your needs.

It is important that the template does not use a ' background.png ' in the layers section of the template XML file, otherwise the video will be masked by this background.png .

It is not necessary to leave the layer relative to the screenshot since the screenshot will be replaced by the video .

Example with the layers section of the template file ' mix_video1.xml ':

<layer1></layer1>                 <--- background.png removed
<layer2></layer2>                 <--- screenshot removed

When using the ' Video+Overlay ' button ARRM checks for the existence of the 'template_association_video.txt' file and applies the associated video template to the current system (' Auto_template ' must be checked). If the file ' template_association_video.txt ' does not exist, ARRM will apply the usual templates present in the file ' template_association.txt '
