Yes on a Pi4, its in Retropie 4.6 Experimental Packages now.
I do not know the version of AttractMode, its installed from source in the Retropie Setup Menu.

This theme was developed on attract mode v2.6.1 and windows 10 pc, if you are using an earlier version I can't do much. There is a changelog file in the attract folder, it should show the version. You can also run the 'attract-console.exe' file. It will open a console window and in it attract mode prints the current version.
When you are at it, also navigate to you hyper spin theme display (your mame or arcade) and copy/paste the text that is printed in the console - or post a screenshot here. It should show something like this:

Code: [Select]
Attract-Mode v2.6.1 (Windows, SFML 2.5.1 +SWF +7z +Curl)
avcodec 58.54.100 / avformat 58.29.100 / swscale 5.5.100 / avutil 56.31.100 / swresample 3.5.100

Nvidia GPU detected. Attract Mode profile was not found so it has been created.
In order for the changes to take effect, please restart Attract Mode

Config: D:\Arcade\attract\attract.cfg

*** Initializing display: 'Mame'
 - Loaded master romlist 'mame' in 26 ms (2877 entries kept, 776 discarded)
 - Constructed 1 filters in 0 ms (2877 comparisons)
Attract-Mode Version: v2.6.1
Screen aspect ratio: 16x9
Resolution: 1920x1080
Shader GLSL available: 1
OS: Windows
        using settings[16x9][aspectDepend][res_x] : 1920
        using settings[16x9][aspectDepend][res_y] : 1080
        using settings[16x9][aspectDepend][maskFactor] : 1.9
 - Loaded layout: D:\Arcade\attract\layouts/Hyperspin Theme Mode/ (layout.nut)

ALSO - make sure you are not trying to run the actual hyperspin themes! "Hyperspin Theme Mode" uses only unified videos of the themes - mp4 video files, not the the themes themselves!

If you want to use the original HS themes, use the PCCA theme for attract mode, it's still in development but it works pretty well:

I've managed to get all of the other hemes to work except for hyperspin, it would show me the list of games and wheels, but no videos.  Do I need the video in certain format ? I mean they are all mp4 and the other themes doesn't seem to have any problem with it. Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

Hi, place the hyperspin videos in a folder named "themes" in your attract\menu-art\[emulator of choice] folder.
for example: "C:\attract\menu-art\mame\themes".

Then add to your [emulator of choice] cfg file (mame.cfg for example) this line:

Code: [Select]
artwork    themes          $PROGDIR/menu-art/Mame/themes
mp4s are just fine.
Tell me if you have any other issues.

Cheers

Ok thanks, I got it to work, but for the hyperspin main menu, I can't seem to make it look for the videos in "K:\Attract Mode\menu-art\snap" folder, I had to rename "snap" to "themes" for it to work.

Good! Yeah, main menu works in a different way in AM. I will update the instructions in the main page.
