General / Re: Need Help compiling attractmode without x11
« on: October 25, 2021, 11:24:31 PM »
It's a problem of your OS.
to start a graphical application, you need a display environment.
on Ubuntu Server, you can't start the attract gui (command attract).
See here
See minimal GUI

General / Re: Button to universally close emulators?
« on: September 25, 2021, 02:54:03 PM »
You don't need to press the button or combos, that the emulator provides/supports.
If you set an Exit Hotkey (or even a combination of buttons) in AM, AM kills the belonging executable.

for example the NES-emulator Mesen.
If you open a romfile with Mesen and press ESC => Mesen pause the emulation.

if you set ESC as Exit Hotkey in AM:
AM close the complete emulation.

open AM > press TAB-key > Emulators > choose your display > Exit Hotkey : press ESC

edit the screensaver.nut in line #158 (your_AM_folder\screensaver\screensaver.nut)

MIN_TIME = 4000; // the minimum amount of time this mode should run for (in milliseconds)

MIN_TIME = 10000; // the minimum amount of time this mode should run for (in milliseconds)

Not sure, what you want.
Attractmode is a frontend, which is available for different OS (See.
The mini consoles use an adapted Linux, but I think AM and its Themes aren't availabe for the mini consoles.

choose an exit button or key combination, to exit Firefox. For example the ESC key:

workdir              C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\YOUTUBE\ROMS\
romext               .url
system               Arcade

Emulators / Re: Amiga CD32

the spaces in your paths are awful.
unreadable for any support.

tested 'alien breed tower assault' a few moments ago.

.zip => works.
extracted to .bin and .cue => works.

See my settings here (see section : AMIGA CD32)

check your romfile. probably broken.

General / Re: Scraping only for missing art?
« on: August 30, 2021, 01:25:07 AM »
Just tested a few monents ago:

Scrape artwork for 40 rom-files: 5 seconds (40 files(s) downloaded)

delete one of the artworks and scrape again : 1 second (1 file(s) downloaded)

replaced an existing artwork with another artwork (which has nothing to do with the game) : 1 second (0 file(s) downloaded)

Seems that AM only replace missing files (and not existing).
