Attractmode black screen

Post by Shera » Tue May 05, 2020 1:14 pm

I am using raspberryjamma and arpicade in my egret ii. Everything worked fine, till couple of days ago, dont know what I did.

The problem:
Start the machine and I get the attract mode screen. Choose a game. Play the game, hold start to exit game, now instead I would see the attractmode, I get a black screen, i dont see anything. Attract mode still working as when i press down, I hear the demo sound of the next game. When i press start, you see the loading screen and it loads the game. So the problem must be in attractmode.

Anyone knows how to fix this?

I had a report of this happening once but I wasn't able to reproduce it to figure out what happened. It does sound like a bug with Attract-Mode but I am not entirely sure.

If you have a backup image you can restore from that should at least get you going again.
