Any one know how to get rid of the terminal text on the top that pops up when launching a rom ? It's extremely brief & only displays for maybe 1 second but ideally I want it gone. Sometimes it shows a mini paragraph more text than this example, sometimes it doesn't show anything if I relaunch the game etc... Any ideas on removing that terminal white text when launching a rom with Attract Mode ? :dunno

Example:
I launched a game text appears just prior to loading the game:

is it within retroarch ? guessing it's this: mame2003-skip-rom-verify = "disabled" / if I switch it to enabled will that get rid of that text ? I don't want to start messing with config files until someone can verify.

Do you tried with custom loading image? are easy to do and maybe it helps to hide the terminal

looks like it says:

failed to get vendor id of joystick /dev/input/js0
failed to get product id of joystick /dev/input/js0
[can't make out this garbage]

underneath that says something like :
working directory: /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand

  • I have a gaming addiction.....
Go into the retroarch settings then on screen settings, turn off on screen notifications.
Save and exit.

That should be it.

 Cool idea, but I didn't want to supplement it for something else rather get rid of it completely seems like popup ads redundant stuff lol not looking to do that, certainly didn't know about it & neat none the less... My Pi's are going in cabinets etc although like a brain washing polybius it would be great for me to inject an advertisement, DRINK YOO-HOO. However as an end user i'd be pissed to see that pop up every time I launched a game. Incorporating a logo / video intro when turning on the machine that's a different story.

Go into the retroarch settings then on screen settings, turn off on screen notifications.
Save and exit.

That should be it.



That's not it as it was already OFF. Still hasn't been resolved, any one else chime in ?

Is this the arpicade? Just edit the launcher script and add “clear” command before and after. You may still see something but it won’t be for very long.

No as of now I'm using "Attract Mode" as a front end on the Raspberry Pi3b+ doing all of my testing outside of the cabinet not utilizing an ArPicade.

***EDIT***

Finally FIXED this particular issue ! Using this thread on the Attract Mode Forums:

You need to replace what is in the autostart.sh script found in /opt/retropie/configs/all with

setterm -cursor off
stty -echo
clear
attract 2>&1 | grep -o $'\033\[2J'

You can just make sure that a # is in front of all the existing lines in you would rather save it in case you need to revert back.

Thank you need to make two text files one called runcommand-onstart and one called runcommand-onend.  They both need to contain printf "\033[H\033[2J"
Once you created them, rename them to add the .sh to the end and then upload them into the /opt/retropie/configs/all folder.

This can all be done via WinSCP but you can also do it via command line if you want
Pics of what I did to resolve:

My autostart.sh found within (opt/retropie/configs/all) picture below:


I created a .txt file as stated naming it  "runcommand-onstart" which contains:



Here is the other file named "runcommand-onend":


changed both of the documents / file type to .sh & placed them all in their respective folder using  WinSCP:


****MAKE SURE YOU RESTART / REBOOT To see it resolved... You must reboot / restart shutdown the pi etc and power up again etc.
