This is running on an Raspberry Pi 3b+ on a dedicated cabinet with joysticks and buttons. A few more tweaks I'm looking to do, I purposely removed attract mode menu from being accessed by a random person accidentally or on purpose trying to get attractmode menu to come up. However I'd like to re-implement it (IF it's needed to make the below changes) so I can fix my issues below. If possibly hopefully most of this can be modified by tweaking / adding lines to the .cfg text file.

I initially built this image as a horizontal setup, I would love a simple way to switch it to completely exclusively only VERTICAL games if possible, & remove all of the horizontal games via software or hand pluck them out etc. Is that something that can be done with this config file ? Or do I need to start from scratch ?

Also to know where that long list of games / .txt document is placed within the raspberry pi would be helpful. The game list was a text document I was able to modify by hand in notepad++ I forgot where it's placed within the pi.

Also How do I get the "Exit Attractmode" to say something else ?... My own text "Shut down this game etc...." Is that also something else that's left out of this config file ? A while ago someone said it's something to do with the languages I couldn't for the life of me find where that was. Is this something that was implemented within a newer version of attract mode ? I know what's being used in the machine but I really don't need anyone else knowing that. Below is my config for attractmode within my rpi3b+

attract.cfg which is located : /opt/retropie/configs/all/attractmode

I stopped using retropie because it does very strange things with attract-mode, such as putting the attract.cfg in that path you have set, when it should be with the executable.

I have the impression that being a system mounted for EmulationStation, they try that Attract-Mode works more or less similar ... and I don't like what they do.

I'm sorry, but with all those changes they have made, I wouldn't know where to start helping you. I hope that some specialist in retropie can help you.
I love that on my laptop the eyes shine to the Alien every time i access the ssd... :D

You need to get familiar with unix commands and the find command. But i’m with iotero. Retropie is a disaster that I don’t support.

So anyone know how to;

Re-Implement attract-mode ? so that I can hit say "TAB" and it will show attract-mode options again ? what line do I need to add to the config ?

ROATE the theme entirely so I can have a vertical setup / specifically just for MAME ?
(*I'll hand pluck modify my roms off the rom list .txt file)

CHANGE EXIT TEXT - (Instead of Exit-Attract mode, I want it to say "Shut Down Arcade".
