Version 2.3 Released
« on: November 19, 2017, 07:21:31 PM »
After a bit of a hiatus, we are back on track and pleased to announce a new release of Attract-Mode.  This release captures all the various features and bugfixes that have been added to the project in the past 10 months.

Full changelog is below, downloads available at: http://attractmode.org/download.html

A note for Windows users: the default Attract-Mode binary is now compiled as a Windows GUI application.  If you prefer the previous behaviour where Attract-Mode runs with a windows console window, use the "console" version Attract-Mode instead.

Woohoo!


Hmm, when I press back on the Display Menu, I get a menu of all my displays that isn't accepting any directional input.  Any way to disable this?  I preferred the exit prompt.

Me too. Mac users need a bug fix for the issue were layouts are cut off at the bottom when in windowed mode.

Not sure why the menu wouldn't be accepting any directional input, but when you go to Config->Controls->Back, what is set as the default action for your Back button?

Unfortunately the Mac builds were coming from h0tw1r3d's buildbot and it went down a while back.  I don't have access to a mac that works atm.  If you are set up to compile attract-mode on a Mac I believe the scripts in https://github.com/mickelson/attract/tree/master/util/osx automate the creation of an app bundle... if anyone can help out with a Mac build please contact me it would be much appreciated!
