Hi guys quick question I just got attract more set up and running on my computer.  I have the Roms and emulator paths set up correctly and the games are showing up in my list but they won't start. Thanks for the help

@agent007
you have to add the commandline parameters (CMD) to attract.

If you want to start a game directly from commandline or a batch-file, you have to use this parameters:
path_to_nestopia\nestopia.exe path_to_romfile\my_nes_game.nes

in my case:
C:\attract\EMU\nestopia\nestopia.exe C:\attract\EMU\nestopia\ROMS\my_nes_game.nes

in attract:
executable           C:\attract\EMU\nestopia\nestopia.exe
args                 "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\nestopia\ROMS
romext               .nes
