General / Compile windows: error pkg-config command not found
« Last post by keilmillerjr on Today at 03:13:31 PM »
I have a friend trying to compile attract from source on windows. I help remote using teamviewer. I never compile on windows so its new to me. We install msys2, successfully update the system and I confirmed all packages up to date. It seems like a stripped down version of arch.? Installed the required packages according to the wiki. Cloned and run make on attract, i get an error pkg-config command not found. I installed it manually from pacman. Still same error. Has anyone encountered this?

General / Re: Rotating Monitor Cab Project
« Last post by YellowBirdAZ on Today at 08:27:37 AM »
OK still very much a WIP but I finally got to the point I could mount it in place. Gives a better picture of what I am trying to do. The slim built works for my purposes, but if you try something like this be warned the biggest issue is structural integrity. Mine is almost all MDF and would probably snap in two if I mishandled it, but it is very sturdy when mounted.

The Attract Mode piece of this is that those stray green and yellow wires are going to attach to mercury/tilt switches attached to the back of the monitor. As the monitor is rotated, those switches are going to register button presses that will be mapped to AM such that they toggle between two layouts. The layouts will actually be the same... just one will be displayed vertically and one horizontally, and they will use horizontal and vertical game filters. (I can't see how to switch orientation this way at the display-level.

Download and install the latest image of RetroPie from here https://retropie.org.uk/download/.

Next install AM one of two ways: 1) from the RetroPie Experimental Menu or 2) follow the steps in the AM PI FAQ (http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1249.msg9046#msg9046) or the AM Wiki (https://github.com/mickelson/attract/wiki/Compiling-on-the-Raspberry-Pi-(Raspbian-Jessie))

Instructions here http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1777.msg12521#msg12521

Thank you for the fast reply,

I've tried both methods, the experimental menu leads to a dead end for me, atleast after I install it I can in no way enter attract mode, no such option like "switch to attract mode" appears in the Retropie menu. The second option ,which I prefer works up until the end, then I have to type “make USE_GLES=1“ in order to compile the updated source code from the attract directory,but I keep getting the following error:

flags: -Wl,--export-dynamic -I/usr/include/freetype2 -DDATA_PATH=\"/usr/local/share/attract/\" -O2 -DNDEBUG -I/opt/vc/include -L/opt/vc/lib -Iextlibs/miniz -Iextlibs/audio/include -D__STDC_CONSTANT_MACROS -I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include/freetype2 -I/usr/include/arm-linux-gnueabihf -I/usr/include/AL -Iextlibs/squirrel/include -Iextlibs/sqrat/include -Iextlibs/nowide -Iextlibs/nvapi -Iextlibs/gameswf  -DUSE_GLES -DUSE_FONTCONFIG -DUSE_LIBCURL -DUSE_SWRESAMPLE

General / Re: Menu-Art folder nor showing up after AM Update On RetroPie
« Last post by progets on Yesterday at 11:26:55 PM »
i just cant seem to get a menu where i can choose my systems
i use the robospin layout, but i would like to have a startup menu where i can choose the sytems and then the roms
thanks a lot for your help

Configure-->General-->Startup Mode=Show Displays Menu

Configure-->Displays-->'Displays Menu' Options-->Menu Style/Layout=<layout_you_want>

You can also manually modify the attract.cfg file (while AM is NOT running)
Code: [Select]
general
menu_prompt          Displays Menu
menu_layout          <layout_you_want>

hi folks
does anyone had the same experience, that after updating AM on my Pi
the Menu-Art folder is missing
i am a complete noob on AM
so i dont know where to place my artwork for the System Menu
i could need a little help
thanks and happy easter

How was the original install done? How was the upgrade done?

Quote from Pi FAQ #1 http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1249.msg9046#msg9046

Warning to upgraders: If you are upgrading from a version of Attract-Mode that was originally installed from the RetroPie Setup menu do not use these steps, instead upgrade using the RetroPie Setup menu like your original install. Failure to do so will result in two desperate Attract-Mode installations. This specific step is meant for people that have manually installed Attract-Mode from the command line or are installing Attract-Mode for the first time.

P.S. Go to the command line and run this command. It will tell you where the folder is located.
Code: [Select]
sudo find / -iname menu-art
