I'm glad to hear you fixed your issue. I did think that the long value was unusual but didn't think it was the issue at the time, now I can see why it might fall outside of expected limits.

I'm glad things are working how you want. It sounds like you just had a bad setting some where.

Removing the exit_hotkey shouldn't cause any issues. After all, there isn't one there by default.

Remove the exit_key through the GUI, close AM, open AM and test again.
Code: [Select]
Configure-->Emulators-->MAME-->Exit Hotkey=<leave blank>

Using the exit_hotkey=esc with MAME has cause issues for others since that is the default MAME exit key. You can read about it here

Configure a key or button to force the screensaver on demand to make further testing easier.
Code: [Select]
Configure-->Controls-->Screen Saver = P (or any key or button of your choice that isn't already in use)

Go into your Super Nintendo Display and press the key/button you configured above. Do you get the same blank screen? If yes, post you new attract.cfg and Super Nintendo.cfg files.

I just noticed that your Super Nintendo.cfg has duplicate entries for "artwork    snap            /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/snes/snap". Remove one of them and test again.

Try removing the "exit_hotkey    escape" from your mame.cfg. If that doesn't work let us know the exact version of AM you're using.

default-emulator.cfg is a template and not part of your issue. When I said emulator.cfg, I meant <emulator/system>.cfg. Sorry if I wasn't clear but I wanted the Super Nintendo.cfg file you posted. Es_settings.cfg has nothing to do with AttractMode screensavers, only EmulationStation screensavers.

When you are in your Super Nintendo Display do you see the videos play? If your screensaver is activated while in your Super Nintendo Display do you see the videos?

In your attract.cfg I see these lines
Code: [Select]
param                basic_movie No
param                blank_start_cmd
param                blank_stop_cmd
param                blank_time 12000000000000
param                image_collage No
param                movie_collage Yes
param                overlay_art None
param                preserve_ar Yes
param                rgb_movie Yes
param                sound No

You can try to adjust these setting and see if it helps.
Code: [Select]
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Screen Saver Timeout = 60
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Basic Movie = yes
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Movie Collage = no
Configure-->Screen Saver-->RGB Movie = no
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Preserve Aspect Ratio = no
Configure-->Screen Saver-->Sound = yes

The screensaver will play videos (or images depending on your setting) for the emulator/display that you are currently in when it's activated. The screensaver will use the artwork paths defined in your emulator configuration.

If you need more help, post your attract.cfg and the emulator.cfg for the emulator/display you are activating the screensaver in.

thanks progets.
That's what I ended up doing and it seemed to work but the list is still visible in 'displays' but I can live with that.

Actually I can live with it in both places as long as I can change the order.

Systems appear in the order they are listed in the attract.cfg file.

If you really mean Pi B+ (not Pi 3  B+) that's a pretty old and slow unit.

Things to try or check:
- Try lower resolution videos
- OS Memory Split for Video in config.txt file
- AttractMode software vs hardware decoding
- Try a different AttractMode layout
- Overclock everything on your Pi (use a good power supply)

I officially googled for 30-45 mins and havent come up with anything.  :(

How can I remove emulators from the list on a retropie install without having to select each emulator individually, go into it and delete.

Is there a config file somewhere that lists all the emulators so I can just comment them out and un-comment them later when I want to add them back in?

I'm on a Pi as I assume that matters.


Manually modify your attract.cfg file and set each display you don't want to see to "in_cycle             no" and "in_menu              no". You must stop AttractMode before changing this file.

attract.cfg example
Code: [Select]
display Atari 2600
layout               SpinLite
romlist              Atari 2600
in_cycle             no
in_menu              no
filter               All

After serveral days looking for a solution, I have to say that it was impossible for me to do that.

How can I add a submenu of the displays menu?
This plugin seems the easiest method, but the link is broken.

I would like to add some submenus based on filters , something like that:
   Main menu: displays
   Sub menus: Platform/puzzle/.. (filters)
   Final menu: Games

I thought it had to be easy... please some help!

This plugin isn't needed. This feature has been builtin to AttractMode for a while.

I recommend starting a new thread if you need help.

Nice write up Keil!

Also, hyperspin had a option to only show parent roms,  this way you don’t get duplicates of each game on the wheel.      Will attract mode do this?

Yes, this is a simple filter in AttractMode.
Code: [Select]
Configure-->Displays-->MAME-->Global Filter-->Add Rule
Target = CloneOf
Comparison = not equals
Filter Value = .*

Post your \HyperSpin\Settings\MAME.ini file. It should contain all the information to get MAME working with AttractMode.

If your HyperSpin build uses RocketLauncher you might want to check out this thread
