Attract/random video mode

Hi all!

Does anyone know if it's possible to set a random "video and play" option in a LaunchBox theme?

This is something I really like in ArkOS/EmulationStation on Linux. I think it's called Attract Mode. You press a button on your controller and it will play the ROM videos in full screen for random games across ALL platforms. When you see something you like, you press a button and that game starts up. 

It's a great feature when you have a large ROM collection.

If it's not available, could I suggest it for future development?

Interesting, no we don't have anything like that for LaunchBox for Android (or even in LaunchBox for Windows). I believe you're the first to request it. I would suggest making a BitBucket ticket for it via Help & Support > Request a Feature at the top of this page. :)
