This should be in 0.227. Vas posted documentation here:

https://docs.mamedev.org/techspecs/layout_script.html

The only "extra" on here, is that you can't simply run a game with default settings... you need to run it with the extra parameters to get the animation. If I'm reading everything right, you can still run the game with regular artwork, but you will get a warning that if the view you choose requires the plugin, and it is not used, then that view will not work?

He uses Espial as an example on that page, so you should be able to copy/paste that to see it working (I haven't had time to play with it yet).



RELAX and just have fun. Remember, it's all about the games.
