RetroPIe version 4.1.14
Attract Mode Version 2.2.1
The Motion Blue base image is an 8GB RetroPie image that has been created and setup with several design goals in mind. Many new scripts and files have been developed to include new features and enhancements.
The base image has been setup and configured for both Emulation Station and Attract Mode.
Emulation Station is setup with the default theme MotionBlue that includes support for the new option of having video previews instead of just static images and marquee (wheels) and box art as well. Pre-generated gamelist.xml files are provided for many systems.
The Attract Mode front-end has already been configured and setup with all emulators and romlist files for many systems.
A design philosophy was adopted for this build to bring RetroPie in line with the current retro gaming community. The most prominent change was to begin using the community standard for filenames for all configuration files and ROM files. This change now has all the ROM files, media, and emulators matching the EmuMovies/HyperSpin naming convention. With this change, end users are more easily able to download new ROMs and media files that will immediately work, thus saving hours of file renaming.
All you will need to provide are your BIOS files along with your ROM files and matching media. Everything else is already setup and waiting. If your ROM files and media are already named appropriately (EmuMovies/Hyperspin compatible names), then simply transfer them to the proper folder and they will automatically show up in the corresponding Emulation Station and Attract Mode displays.
The use of shared media folders for each system allows both Emulation Station and Attract Mode to share the same media files so there is no need to duplicate files.
I’d like to give credit to the developers of RetroPie, Emulation Station, Attract Mode as well as to Floob, Omegaman, Eric Hettervik, Anthony, scooter1974 , and a slew of others I don’t know their names.
I created Motion Blue as an 8GB starting RetroPie image as a building block for everyone to use. It does not include any BIOS files or ROM files.
I am not associated with, nor do I endorse, any Facebook group, website, torrent, etc …. that share RetroPie images based upon Motion Blue with ROMs included. I do not participate in any sharing of “loaded” images. – David Marti (creator)
