Does anyone have a config set for use with retropie handy ? I discovered you can install individual packages in retropie without installing the whole package. Dont know why I didnt think of that before. I wanna try a combination of native and retropie emulators.

Haha I want to get everything that works in windows working in linux. Well thats the goal anyway. I had a way to use wine to load emulators but it only worked on a older version of wine. Loading games is fine its just when the executable needs a command to load the rom.

I use an openbox script which boots directly into kodi without any environment and load attract via kodi through advance program launcher. But the scipt can be edited so start anything. There are loads of way to get it to boot directly into an app.
I wrote a little shell that can be used to launch games via wine in attract here if anyone wants a play. You just point to wine point to the prefix you want to use set your games dir and exe and boom. Theres a example of the windows games.cfg I use to load the .sh's

Here are my configs note they are not 100 finished and dependent to my system. You'll need to edit them to suit yours. But I guess its a good reference. Very much a W.I.P

General / Daphne ubuntu 18 help

Hey guys has anyone managed to get daphne running in attract ?
I have daphne installed from which allows the games to be played with a script. To run the game you simply load run the script and the game name for example to load dragons lair

cd /home/lefty/daphne/
./ lair

Games load perfect this way everything is handled in the script framefile ect. So I copied the sciprt to my /usr/bin/ so i can just execute gamename that's all working. So I made a Daphne.cfg

Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.4.1
executable           /usr/bin/
args                 "[name]"
rompath              /home/lefty/.daphne/roms
romext               .zip
system               daphne
artwork    flyer           /media/2tb/roms/daphne/flyer
artwork    marquee         /media/2tb/roms/daphne/marquee
artwork    snap            /media/2tb/roms/daphne/snap
artwork    wheel           /media/2tb/roms/daphne/wheel

My problem is sometimes the games load from attract sometimes they don't. If I run attract in a terminal I get a better chance of the game loading. But most of the time it will just hang and lock the screen at 640 x 480 and ill have to restart the session. This doesn't happen when i run the launch command manually at all. So I'm guessing its something with attract.

I've even tried creating individual .sh with the launch command and set the executable to /bin/bash and have the romfile as the .sh They load from terminal but don't load from attract. I'm stumped I've managed to get wine games to work with no issues but daphne has me stumped.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi there i just re-did my linux box and updated to ubuntu 18.04 attract works great. As far as I know there are 2 option you can install retropie and have that deal with everything. Or do as I did and go the solo route. This means installing the emulators such as retroarch manually and configuring attract to suit.  I'd be more than happy to post my attract cfg's so you can see the arguments ect. You can even install wine and load windows games. I have games like cuphead running perfect in linux.
