Hey guys, realize its been a while since changes were made to this. But, noticed that:
-when I run games launched from moonlight lately, its no longer is detecting when the game closes
-I can no longer launch steam from moonlight
I'm wondering if steam or nvidia launched an update that is making this not work the same way.
cant find it on the roms folders..
its not on opt/? right ?
I just found it there... (only place)
but i cant copy on the data.zip Promistion denied
Got it working ! Amazing thanks alot :)
also a n00b here. trying to do this and i'm getting :
"Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by checkout: retropie_packages.sh
Please commit your changes or stash them before you switch branches"
No idea what to do here...please help. thx

I guess only sdl2 stuff can read it.
SDL2 doesn't read anything, it's just not doing any mode settting to another video mode (by default) when initializing the KMSDRM video backend.
@mrbee all good mate. I know it's a lot to take in especially when your just keen to start light guning again :) Yeah, bottom parts of the screen are gonna be the first part to effected if you're too close to the screen, might just have to move back a bit can't be too close to the screen unfortunately.
Also thanks man, been lucky enough that none of my family and friends have been too effected by the fires but a lot of people have so thanks for the support :)
@cyperghost The only change I made to the code was to remove @amadeus email address. Since he's no longer maintaining it I didn't want him to keep getting emails about it. I may start looking into improving on the code but I'm really not much of a programmer. I'd be happy to add someone as a contributor to the project though.
@Scott-Skaife said in System Control API:
One of the thing that has always broken the illusion of emulating computers is the need to break out of the emulated environment to swap disks. Being able to do this from a phone app would be a huge deal.
this seems more immersion-breaking than using the retroarch GUI!
that said, retroarch itself does have various network commands, so i believe you could achieve your disk change example with a simple phone app on the same network: https://docs.libretro.com/development/retroarch/network-control-interface/
I know this is an old topic but I was reading it just before I tried out the xboxdrv from https://github.com/zerojay/xboxdrv/ and I thought I'd just let you know... having built and tested it all you have to do is launch xboxdrv with the --chatpad option and it works perfectly.
I don't use retropie so I don't know where you need to make this change, but that is all that is required. My main annoyance with it is that I can't find a tab key... but it works well, I'm writing this post with it on my laptop.
Haven't been on the forum in awhile and happened to be looking around and saw this. Not sure if you're still looking for info on this.. but i'm a big fan of romhacks, I found the biggest obstacle to be creating the gamelist. Getting a nice romhack list setup in ES or Launchbox takes a fair amount of manual effort.
Obviously none of the scrapers will scrape & create gamelists for you because their romhacks and there is no official list, but if you have romhack naming convention figured out how you like and have them all named, you can get a base XML created from Unviversal XML Scraper (https://github.com/Universal-Rom-Tools/Universal-XML-Scraper/releases) and go from there. I name my romhacks like this:
In ES, I created separate "systems" for romhacks and even English translated roms if I felt there were enough to warrant it. to create the separate systems, I copied the system from the theme folder, renamed it and edited the theme.xml to replace the "ControllerOverlay" art & "logo2" art with a different image (both are normally the controller.svg file, I just a png image, which..mine doesn't line up perfect, but it's good enough for me) so when you're scrolling through you can differentiate between them easily.
You also need to edit the es_systems.cfg and copy the system you want, and rename the affected fields for that.
So for SNES, I actually have 4 different systems in my Carbon ES theme folder, and in the ROMS folder:
For filling in the gamelist fields for each hack, I just kept it simple and did a description, I didn't worry about year/developer/etc. And I just used the box of the original game as the image, I didn't try to find screenshots or specific box art for romhacks.
As far as your question on patching, I can't really answer that, I pre-patch all romhacks, I'm not sure if emulators can do on-the-fly patching or not. Also compress roms as .zip, just normal compression rate, nothing crazy.
I'm sure there are easier/better ways to do some of this stuff, but this is what I came up with at the time. Hope this info is useful to someone.
Re: retropie load, I noticed that your emulators.cfg has a line for "mame_libretro", the path "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/cores/mame_liretro.so" does not exist on my system. Actually there is nothing in the /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/cores folder.
What emulator are you using to to make this appear? Can this be downloaded from the package manager?
Note: The problem I am running into is when trying to run a game (as .chd or .zip) The game starts to a screen with blurry lettering on the screen (I think it says "initializing" or something to that nature, not sure cant read it), and freezes the retropie. I took at look at /dev/shm/runcommands.log, and it shows that the system cant find some files and fails to load, any ideas?

Fatal error: Required files are missing, the machine cannot be run.
Anyone know if its possible to bind keyboard arrow keys to the d-pad? I can only think of a couple games that would benefit from this, but would be curious if it's possible. The list of possible inputs in Retroarch's menu don't include these sadly. This port otherwise works great on my Pi3B with an SN-30 Pro, thanks for the hard work on this!
