I hate to disappoint anyone who cared about that feature I was thinking of coding, but a major development has happened since I wrote that: the Raspberry PI 400 came out.
Now anyone who actually cares about typing in the wifi password can just buy a Raspberry PI 400 and never have to worry about this problem ever again. Consequently, I no longer see it as worth my time to work on developing this feature. Sorry, but you have to pick your battles and I have to let go of this if I want to get other development goals done. I'm still full steam ahead on my Wolfenstein 3-D VR remake though
This will not only download the handhelds but also the others.
Is this a problem ?
No problem, but most gamelist.xml files are made for mess/mame romset (excepted pockstat and svmu). It doesn't work if people use No Intro or TOSEC romsets.
I'll do the modification for 7z/zip this week.
@daviddraper Hi mate, the 6510 script installs OpenBOR as a system rather than a port and you don’t don’t need to muck about extracting games as it runs the .paks. Worth considering trying that version but, as per my previous post, the instructions are missing a couple of steps.
@lolonois I get where you're coming from. It's cool to have options. I've been using the default behavior for years and it hasn't bothered me, but I can see where in some circumstances safety can come across as condescending.
Are you sure?
Are you really sure?
OK, last chance... Do you still want to go through with it?
Once it's turned off you'll have to turn it back on before you can play Frogger. Are you sure?
I had a similar thought and "solved" the problem by running a webserver, where you can download the manual to another device by connecting to the retropie.
I write "solved" because it's very hacky and I've only implemented it for DOS and ScummVM games, as games on therse platforms usually need more "exposition" to enjoy properly (or even at all with some of the copy protections).
I haven't worked on this any further as I'm lacking the skills. But at some point I will probably refine the project, if I find the time.
@quicksilver thanks for the idea. i managed to get my kill script to work and map my hot keys with Xboxdrv to start it so now my game/ports now exit quickly. but ill remember that if i end up needing it down the road
This is an update on running P2000T on an original RetroPie version.
install lr-mess from source (can take up to 6 hours on pi4)
install run_mess.sh from the valerino fork
wget -nv -O /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/run_mess.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/valerino/RetroPie-Setup/master/scriptmodules/run_mess.sh
install lr-mess-p2000t.sh in RetroPie-Setup
wget -nv -O /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/libretrocores/lr-mess-p2000t.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FollyMaddy/RetroPie-Share/main/00-scriptmodules-00/libretrocores/lr-mess-p2000t.sh
add p2000t.zip & saa5050.zip to /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS
place the cas files in : /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/p2000t
@del1verance Hi, well, good question... If you try displaying it directly on the terminal you're logged into the RPI? (for example cat log.txt)
Just to be sure, did you configure the marquees <marquee>.....</marquee> in the gamelist.xml?
The fact that there's output in the log.txt file is that emulationstation is sending the information about the marquees, we need to figure out if it is the proper information (marquee image path) or not.
