Stuck on the config menu
« on: March 06, 2018, 02:18:54 PM »
Hey all,

I am trying to get attract mode up and running. But I seem to be just stuck in the config menu and have not seen anything such as the game display gui. Any idea on what I am doing wrong? Thanks!  https://i.imgur.com/3Daj9Fy.png

Did you set up your emulator? The first two steps to do when you start using AM are:

- configure your emulator(s) using the Emulators entry, there you can configure MAME or other emulators with executable paths, roms etc. You can also use this part to scrape metadata but for starters you can rely on local data. don't forget to regenerate the roms list...

- configure a display, using the Displays menu entry. Without a display you won't be able to see your  game lists even if you have configured the emulator correctly

I got it working now. My issue was that my mame files were in the wrong location it was looking under my username files and not my c:/mame/mame64. When I tried to scrape for the metadata it showed me the correct dir. Thanks for the help!
