I'm getting really close to nearing completion of my Pi build. Can someone help with eliminating what I consider NAG text / random game info when a game launches or exits MAME Attract irritates me. NO I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT MAME NAG SCREENS (Those are already gone / disabled)... It's before / after MAME launches or exits. It's incredibly brief virtually so fast that it's impossible to read without taking a burst photo of it, but I want it gone on both launching a game while using attract mode / MAME. Some games contain more text / info some are more simplified I really don't want to see these screens at all, how can I eliminate them ? Below is an example of said annoying text / looks like the Pi terminal / dos / black screen with game info text just prior to launching mame :



Also to note it's not in RetroArch because those settings are turned OFF (That helped with yellow text appearing on the bottom of the screen though):

You are using retropie software correct?

There is a way to cover that up yes

1.  Goto "Retropie"
2. Goto "Run command configuration"
3. Make launch menu Disabled
4. make Launch Menu Art Enabled

That is a quick way to hide any loading text...you will ave to have all your flyers/boxart scrapped for it to work nicely

I already had "3. Make launch menu Disabled". I didn't have "4. make Launch Menu Art Enabled" though after enabling it I still see the same nag / info screens with generic launch terminal text both when launching a game from attract mode into & out of MAME games. issue not resolved.

Still having issues perhaps somethings wrong within my files if someone can notice anything wrong etc...

I clicked on to FAQ following this link
13. How can I get rid of the terminal/console text I see when I launch a game or exit a game? Check out this post http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1642.0.

My autostart.sh found within (opt/retropie/configs/all) picture below:


I created a .txt file as stated naming it  "runcommand-onstart" which contains:



Here is the other file named "runcommand-onend":


changed both of the documents / file type to .sh & placed them all in their respective folder using  WinSCP:


Unfortunately still NOT RESOLVED unless my files don't look right etc, can any one help ? I'm STILL STUCK  Having this error / issue !?

****EDIT SEEMS TO BE WORKING !!! I Just needed to reset / reboot the pi... Not much left to do getting closer !
