Well, first idea, add a custom splash screen.
I followed the instructions at https://yingtongli.me/blog/2016/12/21/splash.html
The splash screen appears correctly, works perfectly!
Then, I ran AdvanceMenu for the first time to create the default configuration:
Got all the snapshots of the games from http://www.progettosnaps.net/snapshots/ and uploaded them to the PI at
After that, I wanted to remove the login prompt and execute AdvanceMame automatically after boot.
and went to “3 Boot Options”->”B1 Desktop / CLI” ->”B2 Console Autologin” -> “Finish” -> OK
Then rebooted the RaspPI.
This disables the login prompt, and the RaspPI will login automatically as “pi” user.
Now, I wanted to configure the PI to automatically run a mame rom at boot, and after exiting the game, run AdvanceMENU.
Without the “sudo”, I ran:
and at the end of the file I added two lines:
advmame pacmania advmenu
This will open pac-mania rom at boot, and when you exit the game it will run AdvanceMENU.
To disable the MAME nag screen, I edited the file:
found the line
and changed it to
Everything working as expected.
After this I’ll post the controls settings and connections that fitted perfectly with AdvanceMAME and AdvanceMENU for the desired setup.
