Arcade.txt romlist is your normal arcade romlist

Arcade_Menu.txt partial romlist
Code: [Select]
#Name;Title;Emulator;CloneOf;Year;Manufacturer;Category;Players;Rotation;Control;Status;DisplayCount;DisplayType;AltRomname;AltTitle;Extra;Buttons;Series;Language;Region;Rating
Capcom;Capcom;@;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
Konami;Konami;@;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
Midway;Midway;@;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

attract.cfg partial example
Code: [Select]
# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1

display Arcade
layout               Attrac-Man
romlist              Arcade
in_cycle             no
in_menu              no

display Arcade_Menu
layout               Attrac-Man
romlist              Arcade_Menu
in_cycle             yes
in_menu              yes

display Capcom

in_menu              no
global_filter

in_menu              no
global_filter

display Midway
layout               Attrac-Man
romlist              Arcade
in_cycle             no
in_menu              no
global_filter       
rule                 Manufacturer contains Midway

general
startup_mode         displays_menu

Repeat the same concept to your consoles, handhelds, etc.
