Little help for the noob... (Attract-Emulator-mapping)
« on: March 26, 2017, 02:53:29 PM »
First of please dont mind the stupid question...

I want to make an Emulator Only for MAME in Attract , that it will open each rom with her specific emulator...

Details....:

i made inside the opt\retropie\configs\all\emulators.cfg a huge list with ROM + emultor
arcade_005 = "lr-mame2003"
arcade_10yard = "lr-mame2010"
arcade_1941 = "lr-fbalpha"
arcade_1942 = "lr-fbalpha"
arcade_1943 = "lr-fbalpha"
arcade_1943kai = "lr-fbalpha"
arcade_1943mii = "lr-fbalpha"
arcade_1944 = "lr-fbalpha"
arcade_1945kiii = "lr-fbalpha"
arcade_19xx = "lr-fbalpha"


IN EmulatorStation > ARCADE > this works Flawless. when i choose the game the MApping works as it sould the rom opens with the emulator that i give in the cfg file.....
 

Now... inside the Attract i made the ARCADE Emulator that contains these
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1
#
executable           /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh
args                 0 _SYS_ all  "[romfhlename]"
rompath              /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/Arcade
romext               .zip
system               Arcade
info_source          thegamesdb.net
import_extras        /home/pi/.attract/mame-config
artwork    flyer           /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/Arcade/flyer
artwork    marquee         /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/Arcade/marquee
artwork    snap            /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/Arcade/snap
artwork    wheel           /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/Arcade/wheel



Ofcurse this wont play..  i guess that this technique (for emulator-attract) is made for 1 to many..1 emulator many games.

Please help me guys , i need to setup this

That setup will work fine in Attract-Mode once you correct your argument line. Linux is case sensitive so you'll also need to change "Arcade" to "arcade" when referring to the rom folder.

Here's your config.
Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1
#
executable           /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh
args                 0 _SYS_ arcade "[romfilename]"
rompath              /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/arcade
romext               .zip
system               Arcade
import_extras        /home/pi/.attract/mame-config/mame.xml;/home/pi/.attract/mame-config/catver.ini;/home/pi/.attract/mame-config/nplayers.ini;/home/pi/.attract/mame-config/controls.ini
artwork    flyer           /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/arcade/flyer
artwork    marquee         /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/arcade/marquee
artwork    snap            /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/arcade/snap
artwork    wheel           /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/arcade/wheel
