This thread: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/22392/lr-atari800-5200-artifacting-basic-and-other-guidance and the accompanying github repo with the script (https://github.com/raphkoster/lr-atari800-runcommand-onstart) maybe qualify?
@KN4THX said in Removing Retropie From Debian:
As a side note, if I am testing a nightly Retropie build, will an update pull from the fkms branch or does the nightly build have to be freshly installed each time?
I don't understand what 'nightly build' means in this context. Usually a git pull would update the repository to the latest version.
@chubsta It runs pretty good for my tastes. I built a Pi-Cart with the PiZW and it ran Atari up to the Super NES/Genesis era just fine. The rom lists/artwork seem to lag a little with but with a lighter theme that can be just fine.
Okay, I've FINALLY gotten retroarch.cfg to load in the terminal. I still do not know why it was giving me the error before(I compared the entries so many times in the previous errors and could not find any typo), and just as with when looking in the Windows program, vsync=true is present.
@mitu Retropie is already in the installation image and wanting to not turn on at the start :) I look at this configuration of MD, I see the same options as in settings / video in retroarch. So no better to play with retroarch? I noticed that changing any of the options in retroarch settings video also saves it for the retropie. I would like to play only retroarch but as I wrote in another post, the playstation emulator cuts very much when it starts from the retroarch level and it starts up well with the retropie ..
@m2306 - I was thinking about this over the weekend and there might be another way but requires a bit more work. I don't think it would be to much really and only initially. If you're set and good to go then no worries.
Take CPS games for example. Basically if you had a list of parent ROM names in a text file with one per line like so:
With a list like this it would be pretty easy to pull parent ROMs only or parent + clones.
The advantage being is you only need to track parent ROMs and not clones as they are automatically linked to the parent.
So basically by listing the 70 or 80 CPS games you could generate new DATs after an update with very little changes after the initial setup.
I don't believe parent ROMs change to often and if they do it would be only a matter of changing the name in the list like sf2 to sfi2 for example. The clones will be automatically linked.
The clones make up a much larger part of the games list by several hundred so it's nice that you only need to track the parent.
I think a lot of filter lists and batch files that copy ROMs are based of specific DATs in time and are outdated with the next release whereas this would allow you to be a bit more dynamic with new releases and generate a current correct ROM set.
You could also stack lists to make a master list. Like combine the CPS and Neo Geo list or CPS, Neo Geo plus favorites, etc.
I'm not sure of that makes sense but I believe it would work fairly well.
@mitu I tried with my Pi 4 running Lakka and having the same issues. Can SSH in but not use samba. Samba has always been weird on my surface pro 3 tbh like if there was an existing quick access (recents) link I could get right in, but otherwise I’d have to try a bunch of times to get in. It would usually work eventually. Now it isn’t. Very frustrating. I’m about to say oh well and go back to just doing things on my usb.
