Tried it today but the default controls do not work (arrows) to browse the game list ... weird ... but looks awesome  :)
Thanks for sharing!

Change next_game and prev_game in attract config. Default is up and down, but you can change it to left and right.

You have to use Attract Mode OR Emulation Station You can not use both.

To set up attract mode all you have to do is set your paths to the directories to the items. (Marquees, Flyers, Snaps, etc.)

1. I need to know if you are on a PC and if so what operating system you are running in order to help you!
2. Are you loading your roms and artwork from the HDD? or just the artwork?

If you are using a PC then use the full path that your file browser program lists in the address bar to your artwork folder and use that information into the attract mode config file. If you do that then here is some other things to know:

Note that if you set up emulationstation and scraped the artwork through there the artwork WILL NOT work. This is because emulationstation adds "tags" to the artwork (i.e. -marquee -video) so Attract Mode does not see them and use them. To fix that you have to rename all the art work removing the "tags" (i.e. gng-video.mp4 to gng.mp4) There is a problem with that you "break" Emulation from working now. If you are not going to use Emulationstation any longer no big deal..if you want to use both there is a "quick" fix...

Rename all your artwork. (use Bulk Rename Utility for windows or pyrenamer for linux [it's in your repository]). Then MAKE A BACK UP or your gamelist.xml from emulationstation. Next open it in a TEXT editor (windows users better to use notepad++ here because you HAVE to save it as a linux file..wordpad and the like will use windows encoding and thus make your list unsuable to linux) Finally search and replace -video.mp4</video> with .mp4</video>. This will strip the "tag" from there and emulation station will still read the information and work as normal..and you can switch back and forth between Attract Mode and Emulation Station.

If you need more help let me know.

(Sorry mac users i don't own a mac..anyone with a mac if you do this please post software tools and links.)

Mac OS 10 you can use Automator to create an action to bulk strip those tags from the file name. Automator comes bundles with OS 10.4+

My guess since he/she is using emulation station and attract mode, they are likely using retropie.

Horay for a Mac app too! I might get one just for everyday use. Kids wrecked my Mac trackpad and they expensive.

And where is the file for the emulationstation with the path of the art??
I have the art inside the roms folder...

Thanks again

fe.game_info( id, index_offset, filter_offset )

I think your limited to current list. Unless you want to read from file, assuming attractmode stores played time maybe in the romlist files?

Yes. Just have your paths in the emulator config files and attract.cfg point to the appropriate location.

What theme are you using?  If I have time i'll give it a whirl and try to duplicate your problem.  In your first post you said GM 1.93.  I have no idea what GM stands for.

« on: January 07, 2018, 05:33:54 PM »
I have zero retropie experience. So I have idea that may help.

Edit / create attract emulator config as necessary. arcade.cfg was likely created as a template to be used as a starting point.

Your first param is video mode, then system flag, then system, then rom.

Check /opt/retropie/configs/SYSTEM/emulators.cfg for emulators.

Let me know if what I said helps or not and I can try to help more.

Another idea...

Can you set it up so that the outside windows are snaps and only the middle immediately jumps to video (and if no video available,  jumps to a snap)?

What is the performance hit moving from game to game if this is possible?

I ask because the performance on the Pi3 with videos enabled (where vids are shown in all 3 windows) isn't up to snuff.

I'd love to play with whatever code you may have come up with.  :)
