Scripting / Re: Any way to hide attract mode using scripts?
« on: January 19, 2018, 11:54:39 AM »
I am trying to add a script to view PDF manuals, using fbgs. Attract mode is running on a Raspberry Pi without X.
I have set the script to run when custom2 (currently 'M') is pressed. The script is running, but attract mode still draws on top.
Is there any way to hide it without restarting it, or is this a different issue?

Try "Full Screen" mode instead of the default "Fill Screen". Pi FAQ #5

Yes i tried with different adaptators (2.4a, 3a, short cable with good copper quality...), the next time i'll try with the j4 flag.
The command is "make -j4" (with a space between)?
I've had some problems with my personal ES themes and some updates since the last retropie 4.3.8, however eveything was ok with the 4.3.6. Maybe it come from here...
Thanks for your reply.


SFML install
Code: [Select]
sudo make -j4 install
FFMPEG install
Code: [Select]
make -j4
AM install
Code: [Select]
make -j4 USE_GLES=1
These aren't going to change anything except the amount of time it take to compile. It will allow you to try a fresh build more quickly.

It's important to note that the SFML compile commands have changed recently to support the latest Pi firmware. If you're using the older firmware you need to adjust the SFML command accordingly.
Code: [Select]
cmake .. -DSFML_RPI=1 -DEGL_INCLUDE_DIR=/opt/vc/include -DEGL_LIBRARY=/opt/vc/lib/ -DGLES_INCLUDE_DIR=/opt/vc/include -DGLES_LIBRARY=/opt/vc/lib/

Everything you describe seems to be correct. Are you using a good 2+ amp power adapter? I have seen ffmpeg fail when compiling for no apparent reason. Since it's a new build I would try it again, it might have been a fluke. I'll also mention you can use a "-j4" flag after the "make" commands when you're compiling. This will use all 4 cores of the Pi3 and speed things along.

Hi, somebody knows what is wrong?
I did all the part 1, after a reboot, ssh keyboard and controllers don't work. And a bluetooth error on the boot screen.

The logging shows that your ffmpeg compile and your attract-mode compile both failed with errors.

Some more information would be helpful. What Raspberry Pi are you using? What OS are you using? Is this an Attract-Mode upgrade or new install? Why don't I see the "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade" command in your logging? This is needed to get the latest Pi firmware. You have a bluetooth error... are you using a bluetooth keyboard or controllers? If you are using a stock (not someone elses) RetroPie image why don't I see the "sudo bash ~/RetroPie-Setup/" command in your logging?

The new SFML changes are for the newest firmware.

Use "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade" to get the latest firmware

or use

"-cmake .. -DSFML_RPI=1 -DEGL_INCLUDE_DIR=/opt/vc/include -DEGL_LIBRARY=/opt/vc/lib/ -DGLES_INCLUDE_DIR=/opt/vc/include -DGLES_LIBRARY=/opt/vc/lib/" when compiling SFML with the old firmware

I made several changes to correct everything on a new build.

- dependency change
- SFML for new firmware change
- FFMPEG to remove obsolete switch
- AM to use "sudo make install USE_GLES=1"

See the updated steps in the Pi FAQ or Wiki to fix this issue.

@SuperContraptionGuy - I just updated the Pi FAQ and the Wiki. These new changes should fix your issue.

@night - It sounds like you're using the RetroPie Setup menu which is a different process/install/upgrade.

P.S. The pulse warning has nothing to do with your problem.

I¡m having the same segmentation fault issue compiling AM. Installing from experimental packages works, but there's no mmal hardware acceleration.  :-\

This is an issue for certain. It's been around for three weeks, since the compile was fixed for the Pi. I know that the AM build works and compiles. I don't think this is an AM issue.

I looked at the RetroPie Setup menu install script (which works) and I can see that they isolate the installs of AM and SFML and make a script to run AM in the /usr/bin folder where the "attract" executable is usually stored. I can see they use a different libjpeg than the AM docs use. I'll also mention that the SFML compile commands have recently changed (this is shown in the SFML docs) for newer firmware versions of the Pi.

I saw the issue a while ago and have made attempts to correct it. I figured someone else would have a solution by now but I guess most people are using a downloaded image or are installing via the RetroPie Setup menu. I don't use either of these and enjoy 2.3 on my Windows build but still use 2.2 on my Pi.

I think you could hack the RetroPie Setup script to get mmal. Install ffmpeg manually before hand and then edit the RetroPie Attract-Mode script to eliminate the pre-built AV modules (libavutil-dev libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libavfilter-dev libswscale-dev libavresample-dev). This isn't a great solution and I haven't tried it but it should work. Personally I'll work on or wait for a better solution.

P.S. This should really be a new thread called something like Segmentation Fault... RetroPie Image

If you can somehow include the new list module by ArcadeBliss into your design I think it would be great.

@jedione & ArcadeBliss - I see the delay/hesitation/flicker/flash that jedione describes when using coverflow on my under powered lower resolution laptop. Jedione if you make your "flyer" artwork unavailable, the default settings switch to text with a generic background which doesn't have the same issue. Maybe a resolution problem? Hope this helps.

@ArcadeBliss - Please provide a generic (unbranded) wheel frame. I see your point on branding your code but it would be nice for us non-artistic types to be able to use it on our cabinets. Maybe default your code to your branded frame but also include an unbranded frame we can choose via the layout.nut options or file renaming.

@ArcadeBliss - Anyway to tie this into the layout design project here ? It might be nice for non-coders.

@ArcadeBliss - Thanks for all of your work! It's great and I'm happy to see you active again on the forum.

The RetroPie Setup menu build of AM is now working properly. These changes are recent so make sure you update everything.

Thanks- that is a huge step in the right direction!  However, do you know where the file is located to edit that one field?

The path is /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/supplementary but I don't think this works any more. You can look at this
