General / Attract Mode on Retropie Scraper still broken?
« on: October 11, 2018, 07:11:26 PM »
Apparently the Retropie version of Attract Mode still wont scrape since the TheGamesDB updated stuff.  I fixed it on my PC build but updating Attract Mode on my Raspberry Pi does not seem to fix the scraping function of Attract Mode.  Also why the hell is Attract Mode still "experimental" on the Retropie menu?  Do you guys have beef with the Retropie guys?


I tried getting used to Rocket Launcher way back in my Hyperspin days.  Yes it boasts some cool features but the software is obtuse and clunky to say the least.  After upgrading to Attract Mode, Retroarch and Emulation Station I dont ever want to think about all the struggles I had with RL and HS. 

General / Weird bug when loading Windows game with Attract Mode
« on: September 07, 2018, 08:05:33 PM »
When I try to load Tower Fall from within Attract Mode I get a Windows 7 error that pops up with "No suitable graphics card found!"

Even weirder is that if I run Attract Mode windowed it loads fine.  I tried both Windowed no border and with and it worked as long as the window was not maximized.  When maximized I would get the same error message again.

Note that the game loads fine outside of Attract Mode and when Attract Mode is windowed but not maximized.  Its as if Attract mode is blocking Tower Falls access to my GPU.   

Windows 7 x64 / latest attract mode / Game is Tower Fall - Ascension

Thanks in advance this is driving me nuts.

Why oh why does this theme scroll the opposite direction when I get to the left or right of the gamelist?

I messed up my romlist for PSX when I scraped the other day.  Seems I'm not the only one.  Maybe someday Attract Mode will get with the program (no pun intended) and start charging a small fee (for premium features) like Big Box and Hyperspin to help push it along development wise.  I feel like its been pretty stagnant especially considering its still experimental on Retropie and now this.   

General / Re: fbalpha CPS3 roms wont load in Attract Mode Windows 7
« on: April 28, 2018, 12:11:27 AM »
I'm not seeing the console when I load Attract mode windowed.  Which is making it hard to figure out whats going on.  I tried switching the option on and off in the attract mode config menu but it did nothing.   
Also note my config for CPS2 is identical to the non working CPS3 aside from the core which is fbalpha2012_libretro.dll instead of fbalpha2012_libretro.dll
Oddly when I change the CPS3 emulator config to run off of fbalpha2012_libretro.dll all games minus 1 work even if the rom set is meant for fbalpha_libretro.dll
I run identical roms with the fbalpha_libretro.dll core on my Retropie build without an issue and as I said before if I load my CPS3 roms in Win7 Retroarch GUI with the fbalpha_libretro.dll core they load fine.

It really doesnt make any sense.  Its as if Attract Mode is forcing Retroarch closed before it can start.

General / fbalpha CPS3 roms wont load in Attract Mode Windows 7

I'm completely stumped.  The fbalpha_libretro.dll core loads fine outside of attract mode but when I try to load it with Attract Mode nothing happens.   

The weird kicker is the fbalpha2012_libretro.dll will work but wont load all my roms since its for an older romset. 

Im running Windows 7 64bit
The latest version of Retroarch and latest version of Attractmode.

Below is my config

General / Custom launch images for Windows like Retropie

Is it possible to setup a launch image for each system like the runcommand option in Retropie?

General / Hide console when loading and exiting roms? (Retropie)
« on: January 11, 2018, 11:56:12 PM »
I'm working on my custom front end and find it troublesome that I see the console briefly everytime I start and exit a game. 

Is there a way to hide the console?

Also is there a fix for glGetError 0x500 yet?

Im running the latest Retropie btw.

Scripting / Re: Preserve aspect ration in wheel using conveyor

Have you figured out how to preserve the aspect ratio of the pointer as well?

Still don't know how to fix the aspect ratio of the pointer.  Thats easy enough to remake in photoshop.

I dont see an option for that within the .nut file under the wheel settings.  Also that setting seemed to have no effect on the rest of the elements so I had to manually adjust them til they fit right. 

Themes / Possible to make Robospin scale with aspect ratio?
« on: August 16, 2017, 10:42:44 PM »
I have been working for months on a custom Attract Mode theme based off of the original Robospin.  I'm trying to figure out how to scale the wheel images with a 4:3 aspect ratio.  I managed to get the cab (cropped photoshop), snap and background (cropped in photoshop) art to scale correctly but not sure what I need to edit in the layout.nut file to correct the wheel.  Other than intentionally distorting all my 16:9 assets in Photoshop I dont know how to fix this.  Perhaps someone verse with the coding used in these layouts might be of assistance. :)

Here are two example images of my main menu.

General / Cant exit Windows games in Attract Mode
« on: July 29, 2017, 10:37:22 PM »
Having trouble figuring out how to exit modern Windows games in Attract Mode on Windows 7.

Alt+f4 seems to be the only way to do that but is there another way I'm missing?
