FYI for Robospin... I've added the ability to switch between wheel art, vertical art and text box via layout options. The text box should come in handy on the pi for those who want a faster list. Hopefully, floob can add this to his next image build.

Floob, I recommend turning off most of robospins shader effects like CRT, Bloom, and lighted marquee as this can slow things down considerably on the pi. I noticed they were all turn on in v04. I don't remember, but I could have uploaded robospin with those options turned on. But, I honestly don't remember.  ;) Thanks...

Is this up for download anywhere now or just keeping it for prebuild images?

Here it is. Would you mind testing it for me? Try switching between the wheel, vertical art, and text box. Thanks...

I'm not digging the left text box alignment, so I might change that back to center.

Got it , installed and tested.
Everything works perfect besides the cabinet snap/video is not aligned. It was like this on other versions as well, I'm guessing it's the vertical orientation of my screen?

I really like the vertical wheel art rather than the standard version. Again just looks and works better with my orientation.

Great addons to a nice theme. ;)

Thanks... Yeah, the skew bug is probably causing the alignment issue. It's usually tolerable  with common aspect ratios.

If you let me know what resolution you're using I can tweak the layout.nut for you. That, or you can edit the layout.nut and tweak the coordinates starting at line 127. Using Notepad++ comes in handy for this and it's free.

surface.set_pos(flx*0.092, fly*0.38, flw*0.226, flh*0.267); increase the flx value to move snap right, decrease to move it left. For fly, increase value to move snap down and vice versa to move up. Just use small increments. If your feeling frisky you can tweak the skew arguments as needed.

My resolution is 1280 X 1024 so in vertical I guess it would actually be 1024 X 1280 .

I had to mess with the settings the first time I setup Robospin, can these be copy and pasted or will they not work. Seem to be different from the previous version. Here is the settings that I found to work best for my dispaly.

//video
local surface = fe.add_surface( 640, 480 );
local snap = FadeArt("snap", 0, 0, 640, 480, surface );
snap.trigger = Transition.EndNavigation;
snap.preserve_aspect_ratio = false;
surface.set_pos(flx*0.084, fly*0.385, flw*0.228, flh*0.255);
surface.skew_y = -10;
surface.skew_x = 0;
surface.pinch_y = 4;
surface.pinch_x = 0;
surface.rotation = -7.0;

anyone willing to share retropi 3.8/attract mode update pls for rpi3

Changes since 3.7:
Raspbian package/firmware rollups that fix the lockups with the Raspberry Pi 3 internal bluetooth.
New SDL1 dispmanx backend from Vanfanel with triple buffering which should solve some of the performance issues with the previous code. Also some additional changes are included so you can adjust the aspect ratio with env variable SDL_DISPMANX_RATIO (eg 1.33 for 4:3). The aspect ratio will be ignored if SDL_DISPMANX_IGNORE_RATIO is set and SDL1 apps will display full screen. Vice is now set to use 4:3 ratio on the Raspberry Pi.
Reicast (Dreamcast emulator), now supports multiplayer.
lr-pcsx-rearmed (PlayStation emulator) now supports 3-8 players.
Updated Raspberry Pi binaries for lr-fba-next, uae4arm, mupen64plus, Reicast, lr-picodrive, lr-nestopia, lr-pcsx-rearmed, lr-mgba, lr-genesis-plus-gx, lr-mame2003, and lr-fceum.
Added new videocore mupen64plus video plugin.
Improvements to Apple2 (supports automount now).
Added wiki viewer.
Improvements to the splashscreen module (added previewer, randomiser, and no longer requires a folder to be created in the splashscreen directory).
Various other bugfixes and minor improvements.
