Looks like a theme issue, my guess would be index being -1 or +1.

PS: Wont hurt to double check the controls/ mapping.

XP is over 15 years old and is no longer support by Microsoft. Attract-Mode uses ffmpeg for video rendering. Ffmpeg has dropped support for XP. You can read this https://github.com/mickelson/attract/issues/464 and see another person that recently had issues with XP as well as some special builds just for XP. I don't know if any of this will fix your problem. In the link it's mentioned that Attract-Mode 2.3 works for them on XP.

Windows 7 is the way to go if you want any kind of support and want an older, lighter weight Windows OS. You can shutdown all unnecessary services and processes to it make use even less resources.

Linux is another option that isn't as bloated with unneeded services, processes and GUI.

Really the question is why XP? Old hardware? If that's the case buy a $30 Raspberry Pi and you'll likely have a better experience running Attract-Mode on top of RetroPie.


P.S. You're not going to play these games with a keyboard. Do you have the same issue if you configure a controller? Also, run the console .exe when launching Attract-Mode and see if there is any information shown there that might help resolve your issue.

I discovered the bad problem I have yet to fix, I was trying to use a program to hide the cmd window that initializes the AM, when I do not use lauch32.exe in the shell the problem does not happen. Does anyone know any other way to hide cmd when starting the system? :(

Newer attractmode is split with two different executables. One includes console, the other does not.

Use file listed here > http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=2598.15

Download the file and unzip it
copy the two two .exe files (attract-console.exe & attract.exe) paste them in you attract mode directory
use attract.exe for starting attrcat-mode this will start attrcat-mode without cmd.
