attract mode to emulation station

Sun Dec 10, 2017 12:27 am

Hi guys,

can some one advise me the exact info I need to replace in my for my system to boot into emulation station instead of attract.

I want to ultimately remove attract mode as its slow to respond to gamepad inputs does not operate well across raspberrypi3

# Original
# emulationstation #auto
# stty -echo;attract &> /dev/null; stty echo
# attract > /dev/null 2>&1

Hi kman82,

every line that begins with a "#" is a comment that's ignored when the script is running. This is also used to "comment out" commands by putting a "#" in front of them to disable them.

Your already has a command to start emulation station in it. Just "uncomment" the line "emulationstation #auto" by removing the "#" in front of the line (not the one in front of "auto") and put a "#" in front of the line "attract" to comment attract mode out.
