Attract Mode restarts game on exit
« on: December 17, 2016, 01:45:10 am »
This is kind of driving me nuts. When I try to exit a name game, or nes or whatever, Attract-mode immediately dumps me back into the game. Or seems to scroll a few lines and start up another game. It doesn't happen every time, but I'd say greater than 70%. I'm just getting attract mode set up for the first time. Everything else seems to work nicely. This is a show-stopper though.

Raspberry Pi 2. Using one of the default builds. Haven't really customized it much yet.

This is a known issue and has been fixed, you just need to update to the new version.
Follow Method 2 at the below link to update it

I have the same issue and will update mine tomorrow.

Yup as stated above you have to update or compile Attract mode here's how the steps I did to fix the problem

load in emulation station
hit f4 on key board to go in to the command line  then each line is a step

cd
mkdir develop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
cd develop
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/mickelson/attract attract
cd attract
make USE_GLES=1
sudo make install
cd ~
rm -r -f develop

Worked like a charm for me
