So I'm using winSCP and I'm able to modify other things however if I touch the cmdline.txt file I can't make any changes. Won't even let me delete the file....

Permission denied error:


When trying to type in what you said into the terminal

sudo echo " logo.nologo quiet" >> /boot/cmdline.txt
I actually copied / pasted it in PuTTy... I got this error:

General / RPi3 Attract Mode P1 Joystick upside down
« Last post by crimzone on October 18, 2018, 03:27:07 PM »
Hi everyone.  I have attract mode setup with emulationstation on a RPi3.  Joystick works as configured in emuationstation and also works correctly in the attract mode game selection area but when i start a game selected from attract mode, the P1 joystick is setup incorrectly.  Can anyone assist or point in the right direction?  I'm not sure where the configuration is getting messed up.

Thank you so much for that explanation.

You have to add those options to the file /boot/cmdline.txt, or modify them if they are already present.

For example, my cmdline.txt looks like this:

Code: [Select]
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=serial0,115200 console=tty1 root=PARTUUID=f2d3cb4f-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait loglevel=3 consoleblank=0 plymouth.enable=0
Now I would add the options logo.nologo and quiet to the end of the line:

Code: [Select]
dwc_otg.lpm_enable=0 console=serial0,115200 console=tty1 root=PARTUUID=f2d3cb4f-02 rootfstype=ext4 elevator=deadline fsck.repair=yes rootwait loglevel=3 consoleblank=0 plymouth.enable=0 logo.nologo quiet
You can do that quickly by entering this command in the text console:

Code: [Select]
sudo echo " logo.nologo quiet" >> /boot/cmdline.txt

sudo executes the following command with root (i.e. administrator) permissions, because all files in /boot are owned by root and can't be modified by Retropie's standard user "pi". echo writes the following text somewhere, in this case to /boot/cmdline.txt. The >> does append the text to the file (a single > would overwrite the whole file).

Mind the single space before logo.nologo, so that the option will be separated by a space from the end of the existing line. That said, be careful to enter all my commands exactly as written to avoid more or less severe mistakes.

Some more commands for the console (again, all text behind a "#" is just a comment):

Code: [Select]
# edit the file in a rudimentary editor, exit it with ctrl+x
sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt
# restart your game (at least I think so)
exit
# start Emulation Station
emulationstation
# restart the Pi
sudo reboot
# shutdown the Pi
sudo halt

My pleasure. :) And thanks for the step-by-step description, it may help others doing the same. As for your remaining questions:

The Retropie Docs describe how to disable the boot text here: https://retropie.org.uk/docs/FAQ/#how-do-i-hide-the-boot-text


prior to branching off and signing up to another site you've been extremely helpful and hopefully you can aid me on these last few things...OK I went to the link you recommended [https://retropie.org.uk/docs/FAQ/#how-do-i-hide-the-boot-text], perhaps I'm doing something wrong or not typing it in the proper spot but: When I exit a game it takes me to the pi's "terminal text". Within the link you provided it says to type in just to start out

logo.nologo: turns off raspberry(s) at boot

However when I try that first I'm getting this error within the terminal text (says command not found):

You can disable the splash screen in the Retropie Setup > Configuration / tools > splashscreen

Some links about the shutdown button:It may be a good idea to join the Retropie forum and ask there about it, because I have no practical experience in such a button. Since you're using the official Retropie image now, they will give you support for it. I'm called Clyde there, by the way.

I’m using the Silky theme:
http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1517.0

I also tried it with OldRoom. and a few random others.

I disabled all other plugins, still no luck.

I think its theme related in your case. You can try changing exit message manually via editing attract.cfg (its near the end in "general" heading) or through "settings> general > exit message" in AM. If changes are not reflected then comb through theme files. Its hard to tell by linked snap if theme is utilizing a picture or text for exit.

Changing exit message will effect both the confirmation screen and the "Exit" listing in theme.

All I see in the config file and in settings is exit command...nothing to change the display text

Having said all that, I really recommend that you work from scratch with the official Retropie image instead of your custom made one, as you can't be sure in what ways it differs from the official one, which could create problems if you apply a modification that's meant for the official image.

Initially I tried adding the / & the .zip with what I left out to my modded / custom .img and still couldn't get things going (the single ROM load / launch no menu etc).

With that being said I'm doing a FRESH build on my rpi3b+ as you suggested. So far:

-I downloaded & installed 4.4 retro pi...
-Emulation station up and running, I have wifi setup & working, [added the ROM(s) to the proper folder]
-Despite the fact that I only want ONE single rom I loaded most of .78 MAME set so hopefully once I get this going I can just modify the line of text to correspond to the ONE rom I want to launch.
-TESTED game launch using regular emulation station, game(s) load fine.
-my autostart.sh only currently shows the following without me modifying it:
Quote
emulationstation #auto

Next I added in what you said to do and my autostart.sh file now looks like this:
Quote
#emulationstation #auto
/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 _SYS_ arcade '/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/arcade/tmnt.zip'

WORKS ! Loads right to TMNT ! thanks !

Now my focus is to:
-HIDE bootup text / raspberry logo's. (Minor as machines would be turned on prior to people / the masses seeing it but still want to Hide that stuff anyways with the exception of my own custom splash.
-Major thing is I need a SAFE SHUTDOWN single press with a hidden inside cabinet micro switch to leave the ROM and shut it down rather than launching it back to any menu, I literally want it to SHUTDOWN from that single ROM.  It can be "ESC" or anything on the IPAC so the keystroke doesn't matter i.e. it could be "shift", F8" Whatever... but when hitting it I need it to safely shut the pi down to prevent corruption of the sd card.
