Trying to setup attract mode to use Retroarch and the scummvm libretro core. What I did was add all the games to the retroarch Scummvm core file (go in and manually add each to the list).  Then following the retroarch documentation, I created .scummvm files holding the game-ids. I placed these files into a folder and tried to run them but results in "error running game: game data not found".

Code: [Select]
executable                 C:\emu\retroarch\retroarch.exe
args                          -L cores/scummvm_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath                    C:\roms\scummvm\scummfiles\
romext                      .scummvm
info_source                scummvm

I also noticed that once clicking ok, it highlights the game of interest in the scummvm menu.

I'm not using retroarch.

Are you able to start a game from commandline / batch?

Are you sure, that your arguments correct (using full path)?
-L cores/scummvm_libretro.dll
=> -L C:\emu\retroarch\cores\scummvm_libretro.dll
