Download and install the latest image of RetroPie from here

Next install AM one of two ways: 1) from the RetroPie Experimental Menu or 2) follow the steps in the AM PI FAQ ( or the AM Wiki (

Instructions here

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

compilation terminated.
Makefile:456: recipe for target 'obj/fe_base.o' failed

and no matter what I cannot continue from this point beyond, any ideas?

Themes / Needing help creating a certain theme

Hello dear attract mode users,

I am trying to program a theme I personally think is good but can't find an already created one or atleast a similar one.
I am completely new to theme programming and don't even know the language used for that.

What my idea looks like: (its basic fast paint, sorry)

so you have 8 game (wheels?) showing at the same time and by clicking right if you are on the right row you switch to the next game list, the lists are sorted by letters (alphabetically) and the current letter shows on top (currently A). Switching betweens the games results into each game's picture or video which I will make. And also setting a button for example button A to switch between letters.

Is this idea possible? Thanks in advance for everyone who tries to help me :)

Hello dear attract mode users,

I am not that new to the whole attract mode/retropie stuff but still have basic problems I would need your help for.

First one is I just want to do a fresh install of attract mode and update it to the latest version, what I've been reading and doing so far is bassicly downloading the floob retropie/attractmode image and installing, this has worked well but everytime I try to update it it just takes hours to do everything (which I don't mind) but at the end I keep getting some kind of errors saying ... was unable to get installed and so on, and checking the attract mode version at the end tells me that nothing has been updated.

My second method which I read about was installing the basic retropie image, and download attract mode as an experimental package and then updating it but after installing is as a package, attract mode doesn't show up.

It would be nice to tell me what I am doing wrong, these are the tutorials I've been following and trying to recreate.
