RetroFE can be compiled on Mac. Haven’t visited it in long time... because I like attractmode.

Is that RetroFE can be "cloned" in Attract-Mode without problems...  ::)

No. RetroFE can be compiled on windows, Linux and Mac. Just like attractmode. It’s not the only option for Mac like retromacgamer says. I do prefer attractmode, obviously because I’m here. But there is options and I don’t think that is ever a bad thing.

When I speak of "clone", I mean that the aspect, the shape, the appearance, of RetroFE, can be done with Attract-Mode.

I am doing a test install on Linux Mint 19.1 Mate.
The "new" mainboard is a MSI H81 mini itx with a I3-4150 and 4 Gb mem. A 60 Gb ssd + a 500 Gb hdd.
The main os is on the ssd, with the Home directory mounted on the hdd.
The graphics card is a Nvidia GTS 450.
My old setup is a Core 2 duo E8400 @3.6 Ghz, 4 Gb ram on a full atx Asus motherboard, and a Geforce 9500 Gt.
Especially the Geforce 9500 is showing it's age, still good for the older systems; (mame, Daphne etc), but coming up short on the newer emulators.
The old setup is also running Linux with the Wahcade frontend, which is no longer maintained. I can't get it to run properly anymore.
Attract Mode seems to be the best frontend for Linux, altough i had some problems installing it from the Ubuntu .deb package.
It replaced some files of my os, after that i couldn't install PCSX2 because of unresolvable dependency issues.
So i compiled it from source.
My cab is set up with a 19" (5x4) monitor.
I am currently in the process of converting my old Wahcade layouts to Attract Mode using Attract mode builder.
I prefer using Linux on my cab, because it does exactly wat i want it to do and it doesn't look over your shoulder.

Hi! for me.....Raspberry forever.

This. Looks. Amazing!! You should seriously start a kickstarter campaign and get some sort of patent and sell these things! I'd spend $1,000 for one if I had the money!

I used vinyl art printed in pixarprint online, then I paste it over soft plastic film and then I used magnetics 1cm*1cm with 3M paste film behind.

Then, in every side of the arcade machine there are a lot of magnetis under the 3mm of wood cover pinged in white.

Sorry for my English , cheers

I was running Windows 10, but I've decided to switch over to PopOS 20.04. The transition is going well so far.

Did you have to recompile Attract Mode to make it run under PopOS?

I'm wondering if you recompiled it as well. I'm on Pop OS 20.04, and the missing dependencies are giving me a migraine. If there's an easier way, I'd love to know. LOL.
