[Scumm-VM] Add games to Attract mode on RaspBerry Pi?
« on: June 16, 2016, 03:34:41 AM »
Hi!

I want to add games from Scummvm to Attract mode, but I have no idea. I added some games from Retropie (I run Scummvm), but I don't know what arguments I have to use at the Emulator configuration at Attract Mode.

Anyone could help me?
Thanks!

This is what I use:

Code: [Select]
args                 -f -p [rompath][name] [name]

I've tested this config successfully with ubuntu:
executable           scummvm
args                 -f -p [rompath][name] [name]
rompath              /usr/share/scummvm/roms

config-file are found here:
$HOME/.attract/emulators
AM Version : 2.6.1
Input : Mad Catz Brawlstick; Mouse; Keyboard; Xbox360 Wireless
Cabinet : Yes
OS : Windows10 Pro
System : Dell Precision T3500 ; Intel X5650 ; 12GB RAM

Thanks hermine.potter!

Unfortunately this not work in Pi.

I have this lines:

Executable             scummvm
Args                      -f -p [rompath][name] [name]
rompath                /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm/


The folder of the game is "comi-es".

The system send this error:

error executing scummvm -f -p /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm/comi-es comi-es


I tried using:

executable:         /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm/+Start Scummvm.sh

This send me to the Scummvm menu, but not launch the game (I have to select manually).

Done!!!

Finally this is the final config for Scummvm emulator in Attract mode:

executable         /opt/retropie/emulators/scummvm/bin/scummvm
arguments         -f -p [rompath][name] [name]
rom url              /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scummvm
extension           .svm


Thanks!!

i'm not sure about the RPI-system, but i think you are able to set an alias too

for example on ubuntu, if you want to start the integrated calculator so you need to type gnome-calculator to start the calculator.
if you set an alias, you can start a file/programm with your own command.

alias calculator='gnome-calculator'

now typing calculator starts the gnome-calculator. I'm not sure, but i think this works on RPI too:

alias scummvm=' /opt/retropie/emulators/scummvm/bin/scummvm'

Hi sorry for replying to an old thread, I have to attract mode and raspberry pi everything was fine to set up by my brother and I have been playing almost 6 months of ScummVM ROMs and everything was fine until few days when the whole neighborhood runs out of electricity for a few minutes and from then I can't play anymore. My brother is at work and he will be coming home next month. I lunched the attract mode and there is nothing on the screen just start's and shuts down, what should I do. how to reinstall the mode or something else.

@ netre
on power loss, raspberry pi images can get corrupt. So:

-write a backup back to sd-card
-install it from scratch / new install
-try different steps to get it working
