Weird, where does it fail? I found arcade to be finnicky myself but I'd get the window and then the rom wouldn't read for some reason, so where arew you at?

Though in my case I built my own AM setup over retropie rather than using floobs image so maybe there are some differences there.

It fails to load the rom. I do get the runcommand menu, but the only option I have is to change the video mode of the rom, no option to choose the emulator to run the rom?

Its probably ask a thousand times... Can someone please tell me how to install Attract mode. Is it possible to flash it on top of my up and running RetroPie?

Hello everybody and hello Floob !

Thank you for your amazing work.
I have an issue and I can't find the answer on the internet so I will ask the question here :
I've just installed your last image, the v0.4
Everything is perfect except for one thing that I can't make it work.
When I am launching a game, there is that dialog box :
"Press a button to configure"

When I actually press a button, nothing happens... and I would like things to happen !
Have you ever had this issue ? Have you an idea of how make it work ?
I use a i-pac 2 but even if I try any key on my keyboard that does not change anything. It doesn't work on emulstation either.

It was working great with my previous retropie installation... I you have an idea I'm listening !

(I am downloading the huge 17GO img ! I am so impatient to see all the animation, and the beautiful themes with all that content !)

Nicodemus keeps getting hit by sneaky spaces. D:

Its pretty easy now compared to back awhile ago.
https://github.com/mickelson/attract/wiki/Compiling-on-the-Raspberry-Pi-(Raspbian-Jessie) Follow this step by step. Then you can just make a simple script in ports that launches it.

I used Floob's recent image. I was always fine when I used it for the xbox 360 controller. Its when I used it with the arcade cabinet I have that caused it go crazy when I would exit the game it would it select it again or scroll like crazy etc.
I was able to make it stable now. I don't know if this helps anyone that is having the same issue. On ES I would make sure the xbox360 is disabled if not going to be using it. Go into a game from each emulator your using and set your controls. I set my hot key and exit key as the same. When you exit at first it will still go wack. But after I delete old retroarch file and rename the new one created. Usually after this if I start up any game again for that emulator it will work fine and exit with no real issues.
I have been having the same problem with the same image. Also I am using the Pi's Gpio pins for my joysticks/buttons. When I exit a game the controls go crazy and a random game is selected. This can happen 3-5 times before AM starts acting right again. So you are adding custom controls to each emulator? Please explain....thanks!

That's how I did it, yeah! Setting up little details (like if you want to use runcommand, mostly because it doesn't give useful errors) can be a little annoying but other than that it works perfectly.
