Groovemame + Attract Mode
« on: April 30, 2023, 07:17:04 PM »
I recently installed the latest groovememe + latest Attract mode.

Whenever i start a game it goes black screen, than back to the game selection.
Anyone know what the issue is?

Also does anyone recommend a specific theme? I will be using this with an arcade monitor

Thank you

Have you ever had a working attractmode? If so, what has changed?

Things to consider:
1. your attractmode .cfg file for the emulator is misconfigured
2. your MAME emulator mame.ini file doesn't have the correct "rompath"
3. your video driver isn't up-to-date or isn't correct

Look at the last_run.log for errors/details or run attract-console.exe to view errors in real time.

No I'm new to groovemame and attract mode, I'm retrofitting a ultracade cabinet to mame.

Here is what I get from last run

I want to mention that attract mode works fine if I use the main mame software.
It just does not work property if I use groovemame.

The log only shows mame.exe being run without a game being launched/selected.

You mention mame works but groovymame doesn't with attractmode. Does groovymame work properly when used without attractmode? Can you launch a groovymame game from the command line?
