All of this could be easily remedied if we could set a custom resolution in the Attract Mode config.  Im surprised at how stagnant Attract Mode development has been.  Ive been looking at CoinOps and a few other front ends wondering if it was time to move on.  Ive invested so much time into my Attract Mode builds that Id hate to abandon ship.  Admittedly Ive never gotten comfortable with the Squirrel code language Attract Mode uses.

A heavily modified Robospin.  Ive also noted Retroarch is setting everything to 1920x1080 because this is the maximum supported res of the display even though ideally it looks best at its native res of 1024 x 768.  So this might be more an issue with Retropie or Linux and the display.  An error in what the display is reporting to the system and software.  Ive had to force each emulator and Retroarch to run at 1024 x 768.  The boot.config is also setup to that res as well.  I can tell the resolutions are switching between the Retropie cmd line and Attract Mode.  Like Attract Mode is forcing the screen to switch to 1920 x 1080 but when a game loads its switching back down to 1024 x 768.  The screen is blanking out between Retropie and Attract Mode which usually indicates a resolution change.


Probably the layout(s) have a specific width and height defined  which creates a different aspect.

I've run into the same problem.

What layout are you wanting to run?

Well, I tried two arguments, they were,
  [name] -skip_gameinfo and "[name]".
both do not open anything. I am trying to use version "mamepgui" 0.168, I would like to use this version because of the beautiful image filters it provides! Is there no way to make it work? :(

General / Attract Mode not running at 4:3
« Last post by tonberryhunter on January 19, 2021, 03:02:02 PM »
I have a weird bug with Attract Mode on Retropie.  The screen and Raspberry Pi are set to 1024x768 but for some reason Attract Mode is acting like its still running at 1080p 16:9.  So everything in Attract Mode is essentially squished down from 16:9 to 4:3.  My theme backgrounds are fine since they are formatted to 4:3 but Video snaps and game logos are all being squished.  Also the settings menu is clearly being squished down as well.

Is there anyway to force Attract Mode to run at 1024x768 or at least at a 4:3 aspect?  I suspect Attract Mode is confused since the displays hardware does support 1920x1080 but its a 4:3 display with a native res of 1024x768.

A long time ago, but I used a modified Carrier to create this back in early December last year.
So, I know what I'm doing thanks.

Themes / Re: Arcadeflow theme v 9.7 [Release] Updated 10 January 2021

Hi,
I installed Retropie on my Raspberry Pi 3 and also installed attract mode and fully updated the whole system. I went to install this them but all I get is the games list as text vertically on the screen with a snap image background for each game. I tried another theme and that worked fine. Am I missing something here as I would love to get this theme working as I love the grid layout on my Arcade1Up Street Fighter cab.
Do you install this the same as the other themes for attract mode?

As mahuti explaind in his answer, Arcadeflow has issues with PI systems, and AFAIK it doesn't work on a PI3. The fact that you see only a list of names with background is a bit strange though, there was an error in the packaging of the latest version, so you can try re-downloading it from the website. That said, don't expect it to work much better, but at least it should launch and not bring you to that kind of screen.
Not working with the PI is a big issue for AF, but it's a very GPU intensive layout so it's very difficult to make it work on the Raspberry which has some limitation in its GPU design :(
