Read the commit here https://github.com/mickelson/attract/commit/a179b1ae4cddae49e6f52e7004c4d3beac45b1fd. It's for the hyperspin.nut but you can dissect it and apply it to other layouts if you'd like.

Omamez, I upgraded on my windows machine, and the only problem I had was adjusting a path in an emulator.cfg. I didn't overwrite that file either, something changed in the system on how it read relative paths.

I searched using the forum search tool but did not find information on how to upgrade from an older version of the attract to a newer one.

In my case ver2.1.0 for ver2.2.1 (windows x64 version)

What is the best recommended procedure?

Hello,

I am currently stuck with version 2.1 as when I tried 2.2 and this version I get a black box and then "Failed to create texture invalid size." repeating forever. I noticed a few with the same issue on the 2.2 thread but it wasn't solved from what I could see.

I spoke to a friend who has it working no problem so I'm guessing it may be something on my pc it doesn't like.

It's windows 64bit version, if someone could enlighten me on what this error may be and help me solve this it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

For info it may or may not help others with the same issue as I had above. I was running vista and after trying this release on my wife's windows 10 laptop (where it worked) decided to upgrade my OS to windows 7.

Now It works no problem on win 7 64bit. I still don't know what the error relates to but now it's solved for me.

Thanks
David.

so this is just what is hard coded..to make hyperspin themes "wheel work correctly im assuming?
when you set you theme to a HS theme...

Hello,
I just rediscovered mame and have been having fun configuring Front_Ends.  I tried out mamewah on windows, then moved to wah!cade on linux.  Now I'm playing with AttractMode on Linux and it's the best so far ;)  I'm working on USB installs of Lubuntu so I can run on older machines easily.  All is good, but I ran into a snag today.  My 64bit install is working great, but I'm stuck on the 32bit install.  It looks like the only way to do it (for me on 17.04 lubunto) is to compile it myself.  The steps didn't look too bad, until I looked at the first dependancy... which would also require that I compile.  Even the 64bit install went a little slowly as I used the GDebi installer which painfully alerted me to all the dependencies.  Zesty didn't have them all by name, and the equivalents didn't satisfy the dependencies, so I fished in the Wily pool (15.10) and it seemed to work.  I suppose I could try the same on the 32bit install... that is install all the dependencies from 15.10 and then try to compile the 32bit of Attract... but it's a little out of my wheelhouse with so many moving parts.

Is there any chance of you providing a 32bit .deb for the current version of AttractMode?  I looked through the old versions and didn't see any 32bit Linux .deb candidates.

Thanks for your time and such a great piece of Software!

UPDATE:  I no longer need the 32bit .deb of 2.2.1 as I was able to install 2.2.0 from the .deb in this post:
http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=752.0

It was a little rough in that I thought I would start by pre-installing all the dependencies I needed for the 64bit Attract 2.2.1 install, but once i did that and tried to install Attract 2.0.0, it required Xenial (16.04) libraries.  Oh well, linux is pretty good about allowing me to clean up my mess.  Bottom line, it's working... Attract 2.0.0 on 32bit Zesty :)

Thanks again for all your hard work.
