@terranigma: Hi! I'm really interested on Alpine linux solution you just described.
I'm planning to try it soon, so I'd like to ask you a few questions (sorry if this is not the most appropriate place, but maybe there are others interested on):
  • wich emulationstation version do I need to use? Debian based?
  • there's a way to *hide* linux and to have the computer start direcly in ES?
Thanks in advance

Alpine Linux is not a debian based distro. It is independent. You can install ES along with its dependencies with "apk" package manager.

Code: [Select]
apk add emulationstation emulationstation-theme-gbz35
then

Code: [Select]
apk add mame
if you prefer arcade-only setup, I suggest you to install mame-arcade package instead of "mame" which is bigger in size.
There are many ways to directly launch emulationstation after boot but I think here is not a right place discuss this. YBy saying that, you must also have  a degree of experience on Linux.

Hello, I am having an issue with the newest version of groovy arcade arch, in wich the whole frontend, gasetup included is double scanned and boucing/tearing on my Sony 2530 pvm. Running a game or rom runs fine on the tv, but the front end and gasetup screens are like this. I am using a gtx 650 for a video card. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,

I have noticed that you are using kernel 4.15.7. From 4.14.x onward, I am experiencing video playback issue with the AMD radeon driver.

I'm also experiencing this issue with the 2018 live CD. Lockup when playing video in AttractMode basic layout and screensaver. I also saw some lockups when traversing AttractMode menus but unsure if they are caused by the same problem.

I installed the 2017 live CD instead which has an earlier kernel and isn't affected. I was able to use the GroovyMame 195 from the 2018 CD after upgrading glibc and a few other libraries.

Hello,

I have a new GA version(only for test)

-Experimental Fix Vertical interlaces games [by Doozer]

Would it be possible to get this fix as a standalone patch file? I would like to apply it to the 2017 live CD, as the 2018 version has another issue with freezing during video playback.

I have answered your PM and provided you with the diff to fix interlaced content.

Just to push bit further the investigation of video playback issue. Playing video using ffplay will also freeze after few dozen of seconds. Are you in a position to confirm this?

Thank you, I will report back once I have built and tested a kernel.
I have not tested ffmpeg, only software decoding within AttractMode. Will let you know if I get a chance to try ffmpeg with the 2018 CD.

Doozer's patch solved this problem for me, running a 5450. Here is a 4.10.11 kernel compiled with the 15khz patches and this interlaced vblank fix. It matches the kernel supplied with the 2017 live CD and doesn't suffer from the video playback freezing seen in later kernels.

linux-custom-4.10.11-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1i3guHlHfWPNrEhwlz6XF2Xs9Ut9-DUmf
linux-custom-headers-4.10.11-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz: https://drive.google.com/open?id=19hxL-5RAmNwprpk6ItMDc3A-SegFrit5

Install as root as follows:

pacman -U linux-custom-headers-4.10.11-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
pacman -U linux-custom-4.10.11-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Then modify /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg to point towards the linux-custom kernel and initrd.

Ves still releases an update once per year or so, it depends on him having free time.

I installed groovymame via virtual box on my mac. Wanted to start playing with it before committing to it on my arcade machine. To my surprise, attractmode and mame run great within a virtual install!

I found issue #13 and followed suggestions to resolve keyboard map. Only difference is that I am using image 2018.03.04 and the line needed to edit was 330. Horay! I can now easily navigate the console.

System Update within the gasetup doesn’t work. Not a big deal. Thought the inclusion of a desktop environment was interesting. Not sure why it would be included.

My end goals is to upgrade attractmode, use haynor666 + groovy patches and compile mame.

Trying to understand the directory structure.

  • ~ has some random mame files in it with an odd path for roms.
  • /usr/local/bin has advmenu, advmenuOld (what is this?), groovymame, gasetup, switchres, and sh scripts (isn’t a binary?)

Why does mame have a weird structure? Where is attract?

CRT shaders through gasetup does not save. Need to investigate.

Removed some emulator packages I definitely do not need. Left LXDE for the time being.

Code: [Select]
$ sudo pacman -Rnsc gens mednafen mupen64plus nestopia snes9x stella yabause-gtk
Found attractmode using the following command.

Code: [Select]
$ sudo find / -name attract
File paths:
attract binary: /usr/bin/attract
attract config folder: /usr/share/attract
mame: /usr/local/bin/groovymame

mame config folder is really messed up. /home/ contains hi folder. mame.ini. This makes sense I guess. No roms folder. Also has other files and folders that are unconventional. /home/emulators/mame ? I don’t know.

Compiled attract-mode 2.5.1. Need to make heads and tails of the multiple directories now.

During install, attract created a new config directory. I removed the old one in /home/arcade/.attract. Launching the attract binary still tries to use the old path. I am not sure why.?

Edit: oomek brought it to my attention that there is a default config path and personalized path, just like on the Mac.

Hi, new version GroovyArcade 2019

Download GroovyArcade

Hi ves! Thank you very much for maintaining GroovyArcade!

I am testing on virtual box via mac. I had no issues with multiple installs of the 2018.03.04 image. I am having an error after install with the 2019.02.02 image. Once I reboot after install, „Loading ../initramfs-linux.img failed: No such file or directory“ and then drops me to a boot command prompt. Virtual install has 4096mb ram and 16gb dynamically allocated disk. These settings seemed to work well for compiling on the 2018.03.04 image. I have even tried starting fresh, booting to gparted, wiping out the virtual disk, and then installing. Same results.

What exactly changed in this version? How are you creating the image? Perhaps we can somehow get community involvement? I use git for scripts/files. I am not sure what to do for something like this.

Hi keilmillerjr,

New version boots install from disk now. Thank you! Perhaps update date in filename to differentiate revision.

gasetup still doesn’t save the keyboard map. Please change to the following:
Code: (/opt/gasetup/core/procedures/interactive line:330) [Select]
localectl set-keymap $KEYMAP
Update GroovyMame new website does not work.

Gasetup menu update also fails. Is this something open source we can contribute to and improve?

Thank you again! I really like groovy arcade. :cheers:

I downloaded and installed (to disk) the 2019 version of groovyarcade over the weekend.  I love the concept, and a lot has gone well - but I have a few issues that I need to resolve.

The most critical is that attract mode keeps locking up on me.  This typically happens when I am navigation the configuration menus - but once it happened on the main game menu when I was scrolling through the game list.  I only have about 20 games loaded so far while I get everything set up.  It hasn't happened yet while playing - but this isn't really conclusive since I've been spending the far majority of my time getting it set up so far.  This has happened with a few different themes.

When it locks - the keyboards seems completely unresponsive.  I haven't found a way to recover without powering off.  Are there any logs (or ways to turn on logging) so I can see if there are any error messages?  I have no idea why this is happening and no idea how to begin to try to find the cause.  I have a little linux experience, but am basically a novice.

The other issue I am having (which is far less of an issue until I get the first one resolved) is that I can't get the Nevato theme to work.  I just get a black screen with a large game list.  I just copied the theme from my Windows install which worked fine on the same cabinet.

I'm probably leaving our relevant information - but please let me know if anyone has any suggestions.

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

Mike

After a bit of playing around and trying different key combinations - I was able to get a dialog that allowed me to end the process.  That kicked me out to a console that briefly displayed a message before re-running GASETUP.  I took a video and extracted an image of the screen.

Hopefully this provides enough info for someone to point me in the right direction.

LXDE -> LXTerminal -> attract

You should be able to scroll back on your log after exiting attract (if I remember correctly).

Yesterday night I tried this new version of groovyarcade, it works perfectly, the only fault I found is that attract mode stops working after a minute starts, sure is my PC problem and I wanted to know what version of groovymame is installed in this compilation, to add the correct roms package, keep up the great work!

You can launch lxde, open LXTerminal, and then launch groovymame without any parameters.

I’m starting to compile mame for GroovyArcade. Can find diffs and binary on my repo. Will do 0.206 soon. Thanks to haynor666 and calamity.

localectl set-keymap $KEYMAP

This only works for the virtual console.

I believe we need a different format for x11 keymap. Perhaps a new menu entry?

Guys, I updated groovymame and overwrote the file in /usr/local/bin.  Now when I try to launch GroovyArcade, there is no option for MAME - only the consoles.

I checked the MAME.xml file and it says 0 bytes.

What am I doing wrong?

Cheers.

Probably AdvMenu needs to recreate the xml. For some reason it's not succeeding.

Guys, I updated groovymame and overwrote the file in /usr/local/bin.  Now when I try to launch GroovyArcade, there is no option for MAME - only the consoles.

I checked the MAME.xml file and it says 0 bytes.

What am I doing wrong?

Cheers.

Hello, I have another query ... Install the Retroarch emulator and configure it in the advmenu for the Naomi, atomiswave and dreamcast games, also to run some consoles, the swichtres function works fine but the different consoles or arcades set them all in 60,000 hz, would I have to install more custom modelines?
I do not want there to be a conflict with groovymame, which by the way works amazing

Thanks!!!!

Saludos desde Argentina!

I'm having a very strange problem, with attractmode, if I enter in the settings to remap the frontend keys, in the button assignment menu after a few seconds everything stops and remains freezed. The only way to go forward is to reset the system, but if I make the changes quickly and go out from the key mapping menu, everything works normally.
Has anyone encountered this problem?

Yes I also had this problem. Ended up changing to Windows 7 Embedded due to this and several other issues.

Yesterday I did some tests to finish the configuration and I noticed this, if all the setup menus are used without ever pressing the esc key, never crashes, just use the back to go back to the previous menu, I configured everything without problems , creating lists, filters and setting keys, it's worth trying because it's really nice. I forgot, I did everything from LXDE and then set attract again in auto start, just to add roms and multimedia.

Can anyone advise on how to filter my Attract Mode romlist so it doesn't show the thousands of fruit machine and mahjong games please?

Or, can someone send their 0207 romlist MAME.txt file?
