Anyone still have these files?

Choose between Fanart & Isometric magazine styles:

*Please note, this needs the updated pan/scan v1.2 from this thread for the laptop screensaver to work correctly.

This is designed for portrait/vertical displays. Drafted at 768x1366.

Credits: Verion for the cabinet and font, Arcadebliss for history display, Chrisvg for pan/scan, and everyone else that is making this frontend.

Fanart layout includes:: Two strip wheels with selected art in the background, and Attract Mode Monthly logo.
Isometric layout includes: laptop screen, marquee, cab screen, picture frame, posters 1-4, angled monitor, bar code, left wheel, mascot, and Retro Gamer logo.

Please let me know if you find any bugs. If you want to use the history.dat feature it's in the basically is just an overlay near the bottom that displays history info...from the popup script found in the forums.

ToDo: Logo for the shirt, genre placement, better code commenting... I'm going here for some inspiration:

If this is the wrong forum, please direct me to where to post it:

I am running a version of attractmode on a raspberry pi.

I want to launch xscavenger (a lode runner like game) that requires X.

Not sure how to do it...

This is more fun than looking at the manual!

It will definitely increase my familiarity. Maybe I'll even redo my magazine theme.

Thank you.

I don't believe args should read

-L snes9x_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"

Try this from your command line in the retroarch directory (assuming your retroarch is on the same drive as the game)

retroarch - L cores\fbalpha_libretro.dll ../../../attract/games/fba/

Try going to the command prompt, and see if you can launch retroarch from the E:\ prompt

I have  attractmode in the root with a folder addons inside attractmode...
i.e. c:\attractmode\addons\retroarch

This is my emulator cfg for nes...I can move attractmode to any root drive and it works.

Hope the following helps:

executable           addons/retroarch/retroarch
args                 -L cores\nestopia_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath              ..\..\..\attractmode\addons\nes\roms\
romext               .zip;.nes
system               Nintendo;NES;Famicom
artwork    flyer           ../../attractmode/scraper/nes/flyer
artwork    marquee         ../../attractmode/scraper/nes/marquee
artwork    snap            ../../attractmode/scraper/nes/snap
artwork    wheel           ../../attractmode/scraper/nes/wheel

Thanks. What do you type from the command line to get your rom to run?


c:\attractmode\runprogram.exe -fullscreen

Once you know it runs from the command line, then you can get the parameters correct from within attractmode.
