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.
