Unpack it? :D

Use Winrar or 7zip till you have just an .img file.

Hi guys new to the forum and the Raspberry pi, I tried out the image on my Pi 3 but it wouldn't boot at all.
So I thought I would try and compile it and see how it went. Got it all setup after a few tries, the only OS I could get it to work with is RetroPie.

It is running better than the Retropie frontend or so it seems but I have to F4 to go to command line and run "xinit attract" to get it to start. Is there any way to make it start Attract Mode directly from boot and bypass RetroPie all together?

I think this is what you need to look at in order to pick startup app.

run:

nano /etc/rc.local from the root directory.

then locate emulationstation in a line, comment it our with #
then copy the line and put attract in place of emulationstation.

Also, just an FYI I'm pretty sure this image will not work on RPI3 because the OS pre-dates it.
I did get my RPI3 in so i'll build the next image on that.

Thanks for the quick reply. That file doesn't give any indication to Emulationstation, here is a screen cap of what I get when I run the command.

I don't know.
I would ask on the retropie forum since that's the distribution they use.

Download run raspi-config or pop the card into a linux PC and use gparted to expand it.

Hey nitrogen_widget,

Do you have a landscape version of your custom theme? also im trying to connect via ssh using filezilla and i cannot connect to the server. I can however connect via PuTTY but i want to be able to transfer files by dragging and dropping.

Thanks!

I`m having problems with mame-4all.
I doesn´t launch my roms.
I`ve copied the 0.37b5 mame romset into de roms folder , created the romlist , but when i try to launch anyone of the games in my list nothing happens.
Any suggestion please?

Sounds like your executable path is not set correctly.  You need to make sure it's set to open the version of mame your romset works with.
