Emulators / Re: Retroarch best cores
« on: July 21, 2022, 05:17:47 PM »
I have a pretty lengthy Attract Mode build with Retroarch as the main emulator choice.  I am currently using Retroarch 1.10 with current cores.

Here's my online Google sheet I keep up-to-date with how I have it configured.  There's also a second tab for all of the nested displays I have setup.

And if you ever need some game (or system) overview files.....I have quite a few on my Github page to download.

Also the Attract Mode Github page has a help page for filters.  Some good examples there too.

General / Re: Can I make certain URL to open with attractmode?
« on: January 12, 2022, 12:14:58 PM »
@ Mark Norville

Looking at your batch file .. after launching the URL, are you also terminating Attract Mode itself?  What happens when the web browser is closed? Do you return to Attract Mode like you should?

It seems that would be like launching a game using Retroarch, batch terminating Attract Mode, and then when done playing the game, quitting Retroarch and returning to the Windows desktop instead of Attract Mode.

As Hermine Potter has mentioned, you should be launching the "emulator" for the URL, using it, and then when closing out the "emulator" you are returned to Attract Mode (and have the "emulator" terminated when doing so).  "emulator" could be Firefox, etc.

He was asking you what the rest of your AM configuration was. His question was written in plain English (not gibberish as you say). As a side note, I see you've stated you've only recently began working with Attract Mode.  Coming onto the forum and insulting a tenured member (hermine potter) doesn't show your best intentions (and knowledge of how Attract Mode works).

The Retroarch core doesn't support Jaguar CD.

I've never used it .. but I did find this FAQ for it.

Scroll down to number #9.  Looks like you have to provide a preset ID value for each game.

General / Re: Mame games list question
« on: October 10, 2021, 08:35:06 AM »
You should also be able to add a filter to the Display for:

FileIsAvailable = 1

That should only shows games where the rom file exists.  You can have your romlist file contain every known MAME game, but only show the ones you have rom files for.

General / 3D Printed Retro Computer … PI-IV/B
« on: September 24, 2021, 08:39:22 AM »
Hey everyone!

I’ve completed my 3D printing project and wanted to show it.

I 3D printed a retro styled computer case and installed a Raspberry Pi 4B into it.  I’ve setup RetroPie and I use the Attract Mode frontend for the menu system.

Here’s the Youtube video showcasing it.

https://youtu.be/Ia2gM-Pa3So

It was a fun project and I had a great time building it.

I’ve got it setup using a 4TB external HDD for rom storage.

My Attract Mode build has over 150 real systems … with around 405 or so different menu wheels (including collections, etc).

If you want to know more or see more details of the build … let me know.


Enjoy!!

======================================

The 3D STL files are located here on Thingiverse.

For a full list of the systems I have running on it, you can access my Google drive online document.

Hey Group!

I've just completed and uploaded a new set of 16x9 platform videos for use with Attract Mode (and any frontend really).

These are 16x9 in size (1080p/30) and are meant to be used used full screen.

Here's a Youtube link with a quick demo of them.

All of these are available at the links below.

See the full list of supported systems here:

NOTE:
There are a few more platform videos I'd like to make so that 465 might be wrong at time of posting.

Emulators / Re: VLC settings help
« on: September 10, 2021, 11:54:19 AM »
You'll need to update/install the FFMPEG core within the Retroarch updater.

Here's my AM config file for it (I use relative paths .. so just change it to match your setup)

-------------------

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.3.0
#
executable           ..\..\Emulators\RetroArch\retroarch.exe
args                 -L cores\ffmpeg_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath              ..\..\Movies\
romext               .mp4

The ffmpeg is just another core you have to install like all the others.

While I don't use VLC ... as another option, you can use Retroarch (if you're using a Windows PC like I am anyway).

Retroarch has the ffmpeg core that you can use - even with a controller - just like a normal core.  Just launch Retroarch, use the ffmpeg core, and pass it the filename of the *.mp4 file.

Boom...instant video player.

General / Re: Relative paths problem for portable mode ?!
« on: August 24, 2021, 08:20:47 AM »
I'm guessing you also have your emulators located here:

h:\Attract\emulators\emulators\snes9x

Have you tried this version of the line?

executable           emulators\snes9x\snes9x.exe
args                 -fullscreen "[romfilename]"
rompath              ..\games\snes

I haven't seen mention of the rompath line above yet (with 2 dots and the \ in it) .. so see if that works.

==========

I can say that relative paths DO work great on a Windows PC as that's what I use.  However, my HDD looks like this:

H:\Attract
H:\Emulators
H:\Roms

and I use relative paths in all of my AM emulator.cfg files for both emulators and rom folder locations.

Here's my SNES emulators.cfg file:

executable           ..\..\Emulators\RetroArch\retroarch.exe
args                 -L cores\snes9x_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath              ..\..\Roms\snes\

To me, it seems that the AM emulator.cfg files "starting location" is the directory which the emulator.cfg files reside in.  In my case its "H:\Attract\emulators" .. so going up 2 directories is "H:" and then navigating down 2 directories to "H:\Roms\snes" works.

Emulators / Re: Ubuntu x64 Commodore VIC-20
« on: August 03, 2021, 10:52:26 AM »
Looking at your config line above:

romext               .tap .prg .TAP .PRG

Shouldn't the rom extensions be separated by semicolons?

romext               .tap;.prg;.TAP;.PRG


That may be why Attract Mode isn't finding any roms.
