I Added this to  /home/pi/.attract/emulators change /media/usb0/roms/ to your roms location map!

Sega Gamegear.cfg

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1
#
executable           /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh
args                 0 _SYS_ gamegear "[romfilename]"

For PC and pi without retropie:

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1
#
executable           retroarch
args                 -L /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libretro/picodrive_libretro.so "[romfilename]"
rompath             
romext              .gg;.zip;.GG;.ZIP
system               Sega Gamegear

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.2.1
#
executable           retroarch
args                 -L /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libretro/picodrive_libretro.so "[romfilename]"
rompath             
romext               .32x;.zip;.ZIP;.32X
system               Sega 32X

ghostfur is correct if it is the retropie image...almost...
remember your path and hers/his will be different..
the default paths for retropie are

32X
Code: [Select]
/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/sega32x Game Gear
Code: [Select]
/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/gamegear
What problems are you having..the retropie image should not need any configuration.

The emulators appear in Emulationstation but not as choices in Attract Mode.

I will try both suggestions. Thanks guys. I will let you know the results.

I'm using retropie 4.2. Where should enter this information? Create a new emulator? So many questions...sorry. I tried the other solution above and the issue remains. Strange that it works in Emulationstation.

7. in your rom path(s) put this
Code: [Select]
/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/sega32x
8. in your Rom extensions put this
Code: [Select]
.32x .smd .bin .md .zip .32X .SMD .BIN .MD .ZIP
9. in the system identifier put this
Code: [Select]
sega32x
10. generate rom list

11. press escape (esc)

for game gear

a. repeat steps 2 and 3 above

b. Create a new emulator

c. name it gamegear

d. in the executable line put this

I do too master jedi...however I notice sometimes doing that (via ssh on pi) it will sometimes not take. On a PC I'll do it all day long MUCH easier.

I learned a lot by playing with the config files.

I even added a new emulator (i.e menu option) which is called "help" which provides information such as keyboard and gamepad commands for all the emulators.

Thanks again guys for your help! Besides having some issues with NeoGeo ROMs, everything is working AOK.

Cheers!
