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 love that on my laptop the eyes shine to the Alien every time i access the ssd... :D

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The old setup is also running Linux with the Wahcade frontend, which is no longer maintained.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.
