I would assume you could compile yourself? I’m working on making my own raspbian lite based image, but at a halt as I need a faster pi 3b+. Maybe I order this week.

I have one made, but the attract mode version is 2.2.1, and I do not know if there is one more recent for retropie, could you tell me how to compile for retropie? ... or how to operate this last one (2.5.) in retropie? thank you.

Attract Mode 2.5.0 does work for Retropie with Raspberry Pi3B.  (Note: I'm not using the Pi3B+, so can't comment on that).

Make a backup of your image first.

I originally started with Floob's implementation/image of Attract Mode, not the experimental version installed via Retropie Setup, so I don't know whether the method I set out below will work for the latter implementation.

Enter the following commands in order in the terminal (ie exit out of Attract Mode to the command line):

   (i)   attract -v
   (ii)   killall -9 attract
   (iii)   cd ~
   (iv)   rm -rf develop
   (v)   mkdir develop
   (vi)   cd develop/
   (vii)   git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/mickelson/attract attract
   (viii)   cd attract/
   (ix)   make USE_GLES=1
   (x)   sudo make install USE_GLES=1
   (xi)   attract -v
   (xii)   sudo reboot
   
These commands successfully updated Attract Mode to version 2.5.0.  Note that none of the personalisation was touched by the update.  The "autostart.sh" for Retropie wasn't touched at all, nor was the attract.cfg file.  Everything therefore worked perfectly for me.

I told you. You have to compile it yourself. Lol

Pi FAQ http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1249.0

or look at the wiki

If you originally installed AM from the RP menu, look at the Pi FAQ warning.
