Yes, all paths in such config files I would try relative. Then pass —config path to binary.

Try it. Use relative paths in your config filers and make sure to pass the binary the —config option.

Your welcome.

Right now, the only thing automatically compiling via CI is linux binary. Striving for all platforms soon. I also need to update the compiling section of the wiki.

* Added common (helpers) module
* Added shaders module
* Added PICNnMIX module
* inline with latest attract commits, including sample_aspect_ratio by Andrew Mickelson (updated wiki)
* Linux CI is now working, going to investigate windows and mac osx

Any suggestions, or pull requests feel free to do so! One thing I would like to do is integrate leap (skip empty displays such as favorites) into attract source instead of a plugin. Hmm…

Edit: resolved lint CI and added new intro layout.

Ok, I fully specified the paths now and the MAME app launches now, but after displaying MAME's window for a second or two, I'm automatically switched back to attract-mode. So I click in MAME's window to bring it back to the front, but now any keypress is ignored and I get the "beachball-of-death", i.e. MAME hangs.

I'm able to switch back to attract-mode and chose another game, the old MAME is stopped then and another instance is started, but with the same symptoms.

Here it is.

Check your executable and rom paths. They are incorrect.

So, I'm not sure if my problems are Catalina related, but since I'm using Catalina for setting up attractmode for the first time, I'm posting it here.

I did everything as indicated in the previous posts and attractmode launches just fine and I could configure MAME. I'm seeing all the ROMs and Snapshots I'm using so all the paths must be set up correctly, but when I start a game, attract-mode's window goes black for a few seconds and then I'm back at game selection. There's is no attempt at lauching MAME. I'm abel to launch MAME manually and everything works fine.

What am I missing here?

Post your mame emulator config.

I read the file and it is perfectly up and running but in my theme and robospin it behaves strangely. In the jedione video, the plugin makes Spinwheel spin for a long time and smoothly, while mine barely rotates.  :(

See how the plugin is behaving in the video below.

Perhaps it was using the experimental branch, which posed a few issues that I resolved by eliminating the “cycling” and instead “jumping”. Been trying to balance personal life, work, and creating an attract fork. Once things settle down, ill be back onto modules.

Some changes on the wiki. Check it out and let me know what you guys think. The reference section still needs in markdown links edited, but is mostly completed. It was a larger task than I thought.

Excellent work on the wiki Keil. "signal_str" in Signals is a bit outdated (the official wiki is outdated too). Some signals are missing e.g. "edit_game".

Thank you. Check out source and added. Can view link here to verify (once CI is done compiling html):

Also cherry picked some commits to the attract source.
  • Inline with official repo of 2.6.
  • Added FPS monitor plugin by Radek Dutkiewicz
  • Fixed fonts not loading in plugins by Radek Dutkiewicz
  • Gathering artwork optimization by Radek Dutkiewicz

you are a machine.....good work,    looks like you add a bunch of layouts to it,,
Q:  new to what you are when u chang somthing, and make a commit is their a place
were i can download the newly compiled AM,  or will i need to learn how to do that my self?


I haven't made any major commits to the attract repo yet. I’m hoping subs can help me with the CI. I attempted to auto compile linux binary, but it failed. Once the major platforms are compiling, ill let you guys know how to obtain them and then work on adding in layouts/modules/plugins. Everything takes time.
