Remove the “-b” in command arguments

In Dolphin you need to do a few things

1. Launch Dolphin, in Options>Hotkey Settings, select your controller under “Device” then map the Exit Key, (right analog stick button works well)
2. In Options/Graphics Settings, tick Use Full Screens, tick V-Sync only if you have a low end or onboard GPU to reduce tearing.
3. In Dolphin/Configure/Interface, untick Confirm on Stop (Very Important

Happy days

Sega Dreamcast.xml is in the romlists folder, Sega Dreamcast emulator is present in emulators folder.

Many thanks

General / Nintendo Switch Pro Controller anyone using one?
« on: January 29, 2018, 08:08:05 PM »

Really strange, I am able to map the left analog stick to left (Joy0 Left) & down (Joy0 Down) but not up and right, have manually entered them into attract.cfg as Joy0 Up & Joy0 Right, no luck.  in TAB>controls unable to to select either up or right when mapping.

All buttons can be mapped just not up and right on both analog sticks

Working fine during gameplay

Joystick Mapper app no go either

Any ideas anyone?

OS - Mac OSX

I'm running a "Generate Favourites" shell script and it works fine, but its running in the background and Attract is frozen during the 10-20 seconds it takes to complete.

Would be nice if it can run on top of Attract Mode and show the user whats happening maybe with Terminal?  Opening the script in terminal works perfect spelling out the process until completion

Any suggestions?

These are the configs.

This has worked well for me removing all unwanted roms from a full merged romset, tested on MAME 2014 0.159, providing the romlist you have is in the correct format with all the data

   in_menu              yes
      rule                 FileIsAvailable equals 1
      rule                 CloneOf not_equals .*

Hey Brewski! :)

I'm also running Attract mode on a mac mini with MAME and it's real good! 
I have not tried Kodi with attract mode unfortunately, but I will look into it.

Has anyone with the mac based version of Attract mode been able to run any other emulators besides MAME?   I haven't been able to launch anything else besides MAME unfortunately, but would love to be able to run SNES & NES emulators from Attract mode. 

Hi Inkagnito, to add kodi, create a new emulator called Kodi

Emulators / Re: General OS X (mac) help here
« on: April 24, 2017, 06:58:59 AM »
I have setup tons of emulators in Attract Mode on my iMac, Mame, Final Burn Alpha, Snes, Nintendo DS, various Atari, various Gameboy, N64, Megadrive, PSP, Dreamcast

You will need to Download Retro Arch for Mac, once open scroll down to Online Updater and Core Update, there you can download all the cores for whatever emulator you need.  Set up the controls too

In attract Mode you will need to do the following commands when setting up new Emulator, this example is for Nintendo DS;

Executable: /applications/
Command Arguments: -L /Applications/

With a PS4 controller I can launch exit all perfectly just like on the Raspberry Pi except I'm on a much more powerful machine.
