NEW AND POSSIBLY LAST VERSION FOR RPI 3/3+ . 

OLDER VERSION (V3) CAN BE FOUND HERE: https://www.arcadepunks.com/arcade-punks-arcade-building-modding-and-gaming-forum/raspberry-pi-images/rpi3-3-attract-mode-hyperspin-v4-64gb-image-sergio-hyperspin/  

MY FOCUS IS NOW ON RPI4. IS GOING TO BE ALMOST THE SAME AS THIS IMAGE – BUT THIS IMAGE IS RPI 3/3+ ONLY

Link torrent: https://www.arcadepunks.com/64gb-raspberry-pi-attract-mode-hyperspin-look-a-like-v4-from-sergio-hyperspin/

Whats new:

26) ScummVM: 28

Total: 6330

OBSERVATIONS:

-The image won’t work with the RPI4, so don’t download because you will waste time.(I will release a RPI4 image soon)

-My system is a RPi3B, with a 64gb class 10 sdcard and will work with RPi 3B+

– The mkarcade driver is disabled.

-The Nintendo DS emulator needs a keyboard for controller configuration. Since the DS is just for 1 person, you can configure both controllers to 1 player, if is that the case.

-The OpenBor emulator also needs a keyboard to first configure the controllers.

– The system is very heavy, some stuttering may happen. 

– Ocasional crashes are expected, because AttractMode is heavy and resource hungry. Just reboot.

– Some layouts are very heavy SWF, so a slowdown will be noticiable in some themes.

-Is recommended a cooling method (large heatsinks or fans) to the temp get around 55-60 Celsius and a good power source.

– The image was conceived for 64GB card, almost ready to use, but can be used in any sdcard and be increased to higher storage and add new games and arts.

– I recommend to add roms through WinSCP, because RPi3B has many WIFI drops . https://winscp.net/eng/download.php

– To create or modify Hyperspin themes, use Hypertheme, thats part of the Hyperspin installation pack: https://hyperspin-fe.com/files/file/17585-hyperspin-151-full-package/

 

– To download the arts, I recommend the torrent from the Hyperpie Project: https://files.hyperpie.appboxes.co/HyperPie-v2-Media_Pi_Version.torrent, but you can download also from emumovies and hyperspin.fe

– The image was compressed with 7zip (https://www.7-zip.org/download.html) and Winrar

 

FIRST USE:

 

  1. A) BURNING THE IMAGE

– Download the image and burn to the sdcard. I use Win32DiskImager: https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

– Place the sdcard in your RPi, connect a keyboard, the HDMI and then the power source to load the system.

– You will need a keyboard connected to the RPi until configure the controller.

 

  1. B) CONFIGURING THE WIFI

– Once you configure the controller go to Attract Mode menu. There go to Wifi configuration and configure the Wifi.

 

  1. C) EXPANDING THE SYSTEM TO USE THE WHOLE SDCARD

– Go to Attract Mode Setup> Raspberry Pi > Advanced Settings > Expand Filsystem

 

  1. D) CONFIGURING CONTROLLERS

 

– Go to bluetooth if you want to set bluetooth controllers.

– If you will use GPIO controllers, enable mkarcade driver. Just go to Attract Mode Setup> Retropie> drivers and install the mkarcade driver.

– Then, go either Emulation Station or Reset Controllers to set the in game controllers. The reset controllers option will erase any pre-set emulator/game configuration.

 

  1. E) CONFIGURING THE CONTROLLER TO USE IN THE MENU

– When the system loads press TAB. Will show a black screen written Configure> Controls.  This will open a control configuration tab for THE ATTRACTMODE MENU,  this will not work in games.

 

  1. F) Changin the aspect ratio of games

 

– If you want change the Aspect Ratio to 4:3 or 16:9 of your games you have to go to > Atrratc Mode > Configuration editor

Looks Nice. But unfortunately, Attract Mode is too heavy for Rpi3b. Any way of using this updated image with the normal emulation station?

Just enter the Attract Mode Icon, then enter the Retropie icon, in the screen that will open select Configurations/tools, then autostart, then set manually, erase “attract” and type emulationstation . After that exit and reboot

You must enter the attract menu  (press tab in the keyboard). In that menu must enter “Controls” and remap the buttons.

Thats one big file with the extension .img . The file is compressed and split in several little files. You must go to the first one and, using winrar or 7zip extract the file. the extraction will take several minutes. Then you burn the big .img file in your sdcard

You can download the image packs from https://hyperspin-fe.com/ and videos from emumovies.com . The original torrent file link is offline, luckily i had a copy, here is the link: https://mega.nz/file/Dwd1xYLI#HVkFA4GGbvPRr9EwAS02x7zWbU1khBXUzU9B4I4tyTs

For those who updated the kernel and are having sound issues, and sound problems with attractmode, here is a solution: 

The solution has 2 steps: 

The first one is well described in this link: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/26628/audio-issues-after-latest-raspbian-updates-june-2020  and affects emulationstation and retroarch

The solution is, in update your RetroPie-Setup installation.
-use the Audio menu in RetroPie to choose your Audio output (HDMI/Headphones).
-This will set the default Sound card/device for your system, but wouldn’t always solve the problem of missing audio in EmulationStation.
-update the EmulationStation core package – you should have at least version v2.9.2.
-Re-configure your Sound in EmulationStation, depending on how your sound output is configured.

– Edit cmdline.txt and add to /boot/cmdline.txt:

snd_bcm2835.enable_hdmi=1 snd_bcm2835.enable_headphones=1 snd_bcm2835.enable_compat_alsa=1

The second part of the solution is correct the sound issue that affect attractmode especifically:

You must type:

sudo touch ~/.alsoftrc
sudo nano ~/.alsoftrc

then paste this, save, exit:

[alsa]
mmap = false

then:

sudo cp ~/.alsoftrc /etc/openal/alsoft.conf
sudo reboot

They should work. Try this: Enable Launch Display (see how on this video https://mega.nz/folder/e48i3RwY#00RvT3okKd5SZLVNMFvTKA ) and try different emulators with the rom. Normally mame2010 is the one that works, change for the individual game.

I’m trying out this build on my full-sized gaming cabinet (there’s a certain humorous irony in having a massively heavy cabinet with an old style CRT and just a raspberry pi inside of it). At first glance, it is gorgeous. Nice job. I have a bunch of configuring to do so the games will display properly on the screen (Simpsons was SO zoomed in, I didn’t know what I was looking at), but I am hopeful I will get it working to bring out the full glory of the build.

Favorites.

How do I create a favorites Display that works without issue.  I’ve tried using the included tool as well as creating my own filters, but nothing works as well as some other versions of Attract Mode.

I’m new to this so any detailed steps, however simple would be appreciated.  All around its a great build though!

This is my first build, and am loving the selection.

It has A LOT of sports games though, and skipping them is a pain. I’ve tried to use Attractmode’s “delete game” option, but it is starting to crash the system when i go back in.
Anyone recommend the safer way of doing it?

The easiest way is to delete the games through the network. Open windows explorer in a computer in the same network as the pi and type \
etropie (or the rpi ip i.e. \\192.168.1.15) . If everything is correct  it will open some folders. Go to roms, and delete the files directly from the folders, they will not appear anymore in the carrousel.
