Running AM directly on DVD drive?
« on: May 10, 2019, 02:04:43 AM »
hi, i am brazilian, so sorry may poor english! and o need help with one question.Is possible running Attract Mode directly on DVD drive or Pen-Drive ?
How insert command lines to recognize the files of the emulators and yours respsctives settings? ::)

Binary storage on write only media, I would assume you *might* have to pass a CLI param for the config folder location.

Code: [Select]
attract --config /my/config/location

Hi,

well, the details depend on the operating system you are using. But on most, it shouldn't be much different to running AM from any other drive. For example, Windows gives DVDs and USB sticks drive letters like it does for hard drive partitions, Linux mounts such media in its directory tree like it does with partitions etc.

Could you please be more specific how exactly you are planning to setup AM, your emulators and roms? What OS are you using?
