    You can issue a clear command while omxplayer is playing the video.

    edit the following
    sudo nano /etc/profile.d/10-emulationstation.sh

    insert this above the other lines
    [ "$(tty)" = "/dev/tty1" ] && clear

    1) start in the advancemame directory
    cd ~/.advance
    2) download the cheat file
    wget http://cheat.retrogames.com/download/cheat126.zip
    3) extract it
    unzip cheat126.zip
    4) edit your the rc file (either advmame-0.94.0.rc or advmame-1-2.rc)
    nano advmame-0.94.0.rc
    5) find where it says misc_cheat, and enable the option
    misc_cheat yes
    6) while in an advancemame game, press tab to bring up the cheat menu which is now available.

    Thanks for your post, this helped with my issue of using 2 mice w/ AdvMAME.

    For those who have a trackball and want to determine which /dev/input/mouse# device is being assigned, you can do cat /dev/input/mouse0 and see if characters appear when moving the trackball. If nothing comes up, try cat /dev/input/mouse1 and doing the same. Press ^C to stop.

    Nice job on the finished product.

    There doesn’t appear to be support within ES, but you can use something external to map keys to actions. Link is included in my post above.

    I like the music, although not a huge fan of credits on the actual product, especially since you did not create the original video.

    Anyways, you could have AutoKey (https://code.google.com/p/autokey/) mapped to a command such as pkill omxplayer which will stop the video if a certain key or key combination is pressed.

    interesting… after purchasing a discrete power supply for the RPI2 instead of powering it from my powered USB hub, the ghost inputs have gone away with the buffalo controllers.

    One quick way is to run a script in the background checking for the existence of a few processes. The bash script should work if you use all RetroArch emulators, and will play random mp3s in the background until a game is launched.

    #!/bin/bash
    
    while true; do
    
    RA=$(pgrep retroarch)
    ES=$(pgrep emulationstat)
    M123=$(pgrep mpg123)
    
    if [ "$RA" ]; then
      pkill mpg123
    elif [ ! "$RA" ] && [ ! "$M123" ] && [ "$ES" ]; then
      mpg123 -q -Z ~/RetroPie/media/mp3/* &>/dev/null &
    fi
    
    sleep 1
    done

    here’s a log of jstest with ‘micro signals’ from the Buffalo controller. all events listed came from the buffalo gamepad itself without user interaction. I might take a look at the drivers/input/joypad.c source and play with js_event … or when I inevitably get lazy, just order some 8bitdo controllers.

    I’m also having the same problem with ghosting/false dpad inputs with Buffalo controllers. It’s not noticeable during an action/platformer, but I can see it being difficult in menu driven games (and the emulation station menu itself).
