Tried out last night.  Worked great.  Kudos! 

Sweet!  Going to have to give this a try -- wanting to go the minimalist route this time....since last go around was all manual.

You can configure AttractMode inputs by pressing TAB during game selection.
You can configure Retroarch inputs by pressing F1 in game.

Since this is read only....I am assuming that input configuration won't be autosaved?  Or are you saving on the SD card?

I always seem to settle on some variation of Orbit.

I would love to try out AM on my new Pi3, not savvy enough to do it but I can take instructions, can some kind soul please do a step-by-step guide?

The guide in the wiki worked great for me on both the Vanilla Raspian image and RetroPie.

I really like the RetroPie image because I am a big fan of the libretro project --- and there has been a lot of work on the RetroPie image to organize things to the 9th degree and to also include a cool setup script and precompiled binarys of most the libretro cores.   The only thing it is missing is Attractmode....And the wiki article linked above takes care of that....(Don't forget the part at the end that relates to installing xinit, since RetroPie does not have an X implementation.)

Update:  It worked.   2.1 GB disk space total with Retropie + Attractmode with barebones X.

Took me a few minutes to see how RetroPie handled all of it's configs....but it works like a charm

here is an example of an Attratmode config example for GBA (without the artwork lines):

executable           /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch
args                 -L  /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-vba-next/vba_next_libret --config /opt/retropie/configs/gba/retroarch.cfg "[romfilename]"
rompath              /home/pi/RetroPie//roms/gba
romext               .gba
system               Nintendo Game Boy Advance (GBA)

Started working on this myself last night -- since my PI3 finally showed up.

Did not have any problems getting attractmode to compile and  run on the default raspian image provided on the NOOBS :) card that came with my PI3....(using the instructions I found on this forum). 

Biggest divide right now is that most of the "pre boxed"  pi emulation scene is dedicated to framebuffer setups (like RetroPI) to avoid the overhead of X -- and attractmode requires X.   

Would be sweet to have an out of the box process like RetroPI that included attractmode as the default FE....Since it is so much prettier and more flexible than EmulationStation.

Personally,  I have not had any issues running any of the pre compiled emulators inside of X --- but I am dead set on having a clean (up to date) Retroarch/Libretro implementation with all working libraries, that is front ended by Attractmode.   Don't really have the time to wait 24 hrs for everything to compile itself....

Was almost there last night until I realized that RetroPie uses emulationstation to handle controller config and have somehow disabled RGUI  (at least I could not figure out how to invoke RGUI on the RetroPie retroartch binary to manually configure my gamepad like I normally would with all other RetroArch implementations -- and did not have enough time to manually add the cfg's for my gamepad).....So I am stuck there for the moment.

Tonight I am going to go just opposite,  and try to install the RetroPie image and get everything configured and running -- and then turn off Emulation Station -- and then install X and then try to compile and install attractmode on the retropie image itself....That to me would be cleaner (and more lean)  than what I tried last night.

Thanks for the reply.  That was kind of what I guessed.  Good luck!

General / ARM compiles?

Anybody compiled and running attract-mode and all of the dependencies for any of the current ARM archs?

Both the PI and the ODROID running Linux using retroarch seem to be pretty hot these days,  and I think attract-mode would be a sweet addition.
