Attract Mode screen rotation problem

Post by triggerhappy » Fri Oct 09, 2020 1:20 am

Being that I'm still a noob, I seem to have gotten myself into bit of a pickle with my Attract-Mode layout settings...

I recently re-imaged my SD card with ARpiCADE 3.X and enabled Vertical Mode in the Service Menu. Everything looked good, except I wanted to change the default Attract-Mode theme. In the process of experimenting, I copied the file attract.cfg.vert file over the existing attract.cfg in the /home/pi/.attract dir.

Since doing that, my Attract-Mode layout has been completely messed up - most notably, the game selection menu is rotated 90 degrees. I wish I had made a copy of the original attract.cfg before I overwrote it. Is there a way I can revert the Attract-Mode settings to their previous state without having to re-image my SD card all over again?

here's the default attract.cfg from 3.X:

hopefully just replacing it will fix it up for you.

Much appreciated, dee2eR.

Tried that link, but it says I don't have access, so I requested it. Just waiting on confirmation that access has been granted.

Thanks again!

dee2eR, just a friendly reminder that I'm still not able to download the file you shared. Hoping it will get me sorted. Thanks! :-)

sorry mate I didn't realise the permissions were wrong on the link. Should be fixed now.

No worries! Appreciate the help.

Downloaded the file and restored it to my Rpi; problem solved.

Still have much to learn re. Attract-Mode, but I will be more careful to make backups of files before overwriting them going forward.

Cheers :-)
