build path to file and remove extension from ROM to add mp4 extension
$HOME variable will help users that are not stick to raspberry ;)
If condition to check filename with -f switch, f means regular file
Hi @fluffypillow . I recently received my Retroid Pocket 2 and am in the process of setting up with Pegasus. The RP2 comes with 2 versions of RetroArch, a up to date version and an older 1.5.0 version that is specifically for playing GBA.
My problem is that I can launch the up to date version thru Pegasus, but when I try to launch a GBA game with the 1.5.0 version of RetroArch it just exits immediately and returns me to Pegasus. (The 1.5.0 version works correctly if I load roms directly in RetroArch)
@fcibx6r1un it doesn't work flawlessly yet afaik - there are some rendering issues. Btw @dankcushions did the Retroarch changes and some others relating to this, so we are aware of current compatibility etc. It will be added at some point when issues are sorted etc.
I added some screenshots to the issue thread for visual references.
you may want to try and get a backtrace with a debug build of flycast.DEBUG=1 buildflag, typically. that should make the trace a bit more useful.
Thanks for the tip! I updated my issue with the new backtrace report. Seems like the issue appears to be in the GetPhysicalDeviceProperties2 struct returning a bunch of zeros where it should be returning the device limits in v3dv_device.c
I've installed the script on the NESPi 4 case set up with Retropie on an SSD.
And they work... mostly. One issue though:
When switching off the device correctly shuts down the OS and then... stays on. Lights off etc but the fan is still spinning. I can;t switch it back on from this state either, have to unplug from the power and plug back in.
Something similar happens with the Retroflag scripts, only with those it will boot back up again immediately after shutting down the OS without me doing anything.
Now all this said I should point out that I'm running a 512GB SSD from the USB2 slot so that may be causing issues? Pi 4 just flat out won't boot anthing above a 256GB 2.5" SSD from USB3... I've had no issues through USB2 though.
@muldjord Funnily, I witnessed your first edit of the post yesterday and decided to go to bed and let you finish your thoughts. Looks like I was the right decision. 😀
Thanks for your ongoing exploration of this effect. One more thing about folders: They can also be used to create subsets of roms in the same ES system, where you can move down into them, seeing the roms inside, and move back up like within the systems themselves.
That said, I found that Skyscraper wouldn't create the Gamelist for roms in subdirectories when it's invoked from the RetroPie setup menu. It just freezes after "Sit back, relax and let me do the work! :)" and even Ctrl-c can't stop it – only the yellow text "User wants to quit…" appears, but it doesn't return to the menu. In the command line however, it works.
@ecto Yup, that did the trick - sort of. There was an error at the end of the build_deps.sh process, but I managed to get past the cmake error. I didn't think I would but it worked, I've managed to run 'make systemshock' so now I think it's just a case of running the game.
