This is one of literally the only things that bugs me within my Attract Mode build on my raspberry pi, I was told to look within the English language folder which I don't see that within any folder etc. I'm willing / considering upgrading if I need be to show that added line. I as well would much rather it say "Shut Down System". Again it's on a Raspberry Pi build...not windows, but sits inside a dedicated cabinet.

Did you try to edit it on the Pi itself by nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg ?

No I don't really like to edit / make any changes that way, I lack the Pi confidence... Again so far for the games I'm using it for I haven't ran into an issue however this for would be nice to clear that dumb screen. I know how to do it I just don't understand why it isn't saving the setting. I can get back into Emulation Station if it can be done that way, I think that's how I did it on my other "Attract Mode" many roms build I can't remember.

im thinking it would look somthing like this,  but it dont work

Code: [Select]
function on_transition_StartLayout( ttype, var, ttime ) {
 switch ( ttype ) {
  Transition.StartLayout:
        fe.signal( "exit" );
       break;
  }
 return false;
}

thanks for replying...im gonna mess with this abit...still no luck!

Only thing I see under /opt/retropie/configs/mame-libretro is;
 emulators.cfg & retroarch.cfg

within retroarch.cfg shows this:

# Settings made here will only override settings in the global retroarch.cfg if placed above the #include line

input_remapping_directory = "/opt/retropie/configs/mame-libretro/"

#include "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg"

IF i go back to the path; /opt/retropie/configs/all it's not saving the setting for whatever reason, I agree with you somethings overriding it. the file currently shows;

cap32_autorun = "enabled"
cap32_Model = "6128"
cap32_Ram = "128"
fba-diagnostic-input = "Hold Start"
fuse_machine = "Spectrum 128K"
gambatte_gb_colorization = "custom"
mame2003-skip_disclaimer = "enabled"
mame2003-dcs-speedhack = "enabled"
mame2003-samples = "enabled"
mame2003-frameskip = "0"
mame2003-skip_warnings = "disabled"
mame2003-sample_rate = "48000"
mame2003-external_hiscore = "disabled"
mame2003-dialsharexy = "disabled"
mame2003-mouse_device = "mouse"
mame2003-crosshair_enabled = "enabled"
mame2003-rstick_to_btns = "enabled"
mame2003-tate_mode = "disabled"
mame2003-skip-rom-verify = "disabled"
mame2003-vector-resolution-multiplier = "1"
mame2003-vector-antialias = "disabled"
mame2003-vector-translucency = "enabled"
mame2003-vector-beam-width = "1"
mame2003-vector-flicker = "20"
mame2003-vector-intensity = "1.5"


which clearly needs to say "enabled" it keeps reverting back to disabled regardless of what I do.

Is there another file retroarch-core-options.cfg in the directory /opt/retropie/configs/mame-libretro/? If so, check it for the option, too. It would override the cfg file in the …/configs/all directory.

I went to switch it back to galaga.zip which the game loaded however prior it had a NAG screen which I'm well familar with in terms of the emulations is not 100% video accurate etc, I know it's here:

/opt/retropie/configs/all/

The option is:

mame2003-skip_warnings = "enabled"

I did this and I'm still seeing the NAG screen very annoying.

My "retroarch-core-options.cfg" file shows this:

cap32_autorun = "enabled"
cap32_Model = "6128"
cap32_Ram = "128"
fba-diagnostic-input = "Hold Start"
fuse_machine = "Spectrum 128K"
gambatte_gb_colorization = "custom"
mame2003-skip_disclaimer = "enabled"
mame2003-dcs-speedhack = "enabled"
mame2003-samples = "enabled"
mame2003-frameskip = "0"
mame2003-skip_warnings = "enabled"
mame2003-sample_rate = "48000"
mame2003-external_hiscore = "disabled"
mame2003-dialsharexy = "disabled"
mame2003-mouse_device = "mouse"
mame2003-crosshair_enabled = "enabled"
mame2003-rstick_to_btns = "enabled"
mame2003-tate_mode = "disabled"
mame2003-skip-rom-verify = "disabled"
mame2003-vector-resolution-multiplier = "1"
mame2003-vector-antialias = "disabled"
mame2003-vector-translucency = "enabled"
mame2003-vector-beam-width = "1"
mame2003-vector-flicker = "20"
mame2003-vector-intensity = "1.5"

I tried changing the text / from disabled to enabled etc , It shows the changes using notepad++ or with modifying it with WinSCP. I turn the game back on to see the same stupid NAG screen! I drag and drop "retroarch-core-options.cfg" from my desk top to replace the file, relaunch the pi, same NAG screen still shows soooo annoying. Whatever I do I can't seem to prevent it from displaying.

I did however switch it to The Simpsons ala changing the autostart.sh to it's zip file name "simpsons.zip" and that loaded up fine because it doesn't have any known issues with the game. I'm just doing preventative maintenance so that in the future when I "write" the micro SD card over and over again I'm trying to avoid any issues I would run into. On my Attract-Mode build where I have tons of games It doesn't have the issue I don't know why it's not working on this single load image I created, luckily most of the .78 set doesn't have major issues with it.

Also to note as opposed to plugging in the sd Card into a Pi, powering on the pi, using WinSCP to modify the autostart.sh.... In other words is it possible to view / and modify autostart.sh if I just use my PC / sd card adapter ?

Not without third-party software that can read Linux' ext4 filesystems. Windows itself can't read or write ext4 natively.

That said, you could use a so-called Live System that boots a modern Linux Desktop from a USB Stick or DVD. Many popular Linux distributions have installation images that include a Live mode, e.g. all of the Ubuntu variants. The Live system runs only from the stick or DVD, so your Windows on your hard drive will remain untouched. But since Linux can read and write Windows file systems for over ten years now, you could use a Live system to access your Retropie card as well as your Windows hard drive, and copy data between them.

One obstacle worth noting is that the Windows to be accessed has to be shut down properly. The "fast startup" mode of Windows 8 + 10 doesn't umount the file system properly, and the Linux Live system can only access file systems that are completely shut down.

I forgot what program I used back in the day but essentially it creates a list of the file names such as that of notepad / .txt file of everything that's in the folder aka just the ROM folder. This would be helpful because a .txt file takes up virtually no room. Also it's been a hot minute since I've used say Clrmame or one of those RomLister programs but that would REALLY be what I would want so say I have a little over 2,000 ROMs in the folder .zip files what ever & say "bublbobl.zip" it would create a .txt file that would say;

Bubble Bobble - bublbobl.zip
[insert game title here] - gamename.zip
[insert game title here] - gamename.zip
[insert game title here] - gamename.zip

I found this website extremely helpful with .zip names version changes etc... http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/default.php
but ideally I'd want to run said program to create a simple .txt file without having to cross reference the internet / a website I can just hit ctrl+F to find whatever game title which I need to name the corresponding .zip to have it as that single load ROM. The other reason why I'd like to create my own .txt file matching the game names to the .zip of the Rom is I removed most of the clones.
