General / System Menu - Select launch a program
« on: September 26, 2020, 06:25:11 PM »
Is there a way to launch a program from the system menu, rather than load that systems layout?

I want to run PinballY.exe when Pinball is selected as a system.

General / SFML
« on: September 19, 2020, 07:04:24 PM »
Anyone compiling their own version of attractmode?

The last version I have that works with my joysticks is: 2.2.1-win64

All the newer versions compiled with the new SFML library result in no joystick support for my xbox 360 fightsitcks.

If someone can compile the current version of attractmode with an older version of sfml that would be great.

General / Launchbox Assets

Any easy way to use Launchbox assets with attractmode rather than rescraping?

Themes / 9:16 Theme
« on: July 10, 2020, 06:03:02 PM »
Anyone working on a 9:16 theme?

I thought maybe with the Vertigo cabinets and more people using the rotated tv for custom cabs they'd get more variety here...

I know this one is under development:

General / Romlist Master
« on: January 28, 2020, 07:56:43 AM »

Is there a repository of romlist masters? If so, where is it.

I'm not having any success at the moment generating my own.

Thanks in advance...

General / Windowed Mode
« on: December 31, 2019, 04:22:36 AM »
Can attractmode be run in a window?  Not many themes look good at 4k in portrait mode, so I could run a windows at 1920 x 1080 until my new theme is done.

General / New Computer/New Problem
« on: December 26, 2019, 07:17:25 PM »
The joystick is not navigating the attractmode menu.

Running attract-console.exe reveals the following repeated message:

Failed to set DirectInput device axis mode: 1

This issue is not yet fixed, but a workaround is to hide the joysticks using this program:

And remap them using antimicro

BTW antimicro is the best all-in-one solution I've used for remapping controllers to keyboard. It can detect running programs...

General / Windows 10 (Relative Path with a Space)

Windows 10 Attractmode v2.6.0

If I use:
executable          VPinballX.exe
workdir             ../../VisualPinball

The program will launch...

If I use
executable          VPinballX.exe
workdir             ../../Visual Pinball

The program will not launch...(Yes I rename the folder to Visual Pinball and VisualPinball respectively.

Any idea?

Scripting / Fadeart Opposite
« on: December 17, 2018, 04:54:08 PM »
This is probably easy...

I want fadeart to show an image if the user doesn't do anything for a fixed time.

Basically have like a hint screen come up for navigating...


General / Launching a linux native game...
« on: July 22, 2017, 07:49:54 AM »
If this is the wrong forum, please direct me to where to post it:

I am running a version of attractmode on a raspberry pi.

I want to launch xscavenger (a lode runner like game) that requires X.

Not sure how to do it...

General / gamelist.xml
« on: March 31, 2017, 07:51:58 AM »
Are there plans to incorporate the emulation station form xmls for game info and scraping?

Am I missing something?

« on: February 26, 2017, 05:28:11 PM »
Will you include a RETROARCH config for an emulator in next release?

General / AttractMode in the News

I thought it might be neat to keep a list of articles about attractmode. Maybe not, but here is one nonetheless.

General / Menu Selection (Fake Layout)
« on: January 12, 2017, 02:54:37 PM »
I'd like to have a layout actually launch MUGEN from the system select menu.

Any ideas?

I have a layout with just one game, so selecting twice is something I want to avoid.
