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?
@MaMikee said in How do you manipulate "TAB" options?:
Is there a way to reset this to defaults? thanks
You can delete the .ini file produced by the MAME menu configuration - https://retropie.org.uk/docs/lr-mame2003/#mame-menu.
@tslayer71 Manually editing VICE config files is far from straightforward so it should be left as a last resort.
If you have mapped both joysticks. it seems strange, then, that there isn't a joymap file. Did you save after mapping your joysticks? (The full file name is sdl-joymap-C64.vjm btw, part of it may have been cut off if reading on mobile. )
I used the video below to map my joysticks - start at 3:00 as the video begins with installing VICE. Can you confirm that you followed a similar process outlined in the video?
Also, when you say " both joysticks are turned on", do you mean that you have joystick device 1 and 2 set to joystick in the VICE UI - see 4:07 in the video for reference?
@Epic_Jezzman said in Can't save my games and my PS1, N64, SNES and GBA games don't work.:
I just wrote RetroPie to the 16G microSD using Etcher. Then I put it in the Pi and hooked up my HDD to the Pi to get the folders (configs, bios and roms).
There are 2 modes of operation w.r.t. USB connected to the Pi - transfer and running ROMs - which one did you use ? Did you create a retropie-mount folder on the disc ?
As to the emulator i use for gba, it should be the standard one that comes with RetroPie. I haven't added any emulators or anything like that.
I think that's lr-mgba - it's shown when you launch the game on the Runcommand launch screen. Are you sure the ROM is ok ? Get the log file (/dev/shm/runcommand.log) after you launch the game, then post its contents here, surrounded by code blocks (```).
Ressurecting this topic because I noticed that after I upgraded to RPi 4.5 that the speed cheat in Ms pac-man stopped working altogether. I checked the inputs on the TAB menu and button B isn't listed there. There are no dipswitch settings for it, either. I am curious if this is a driver change or if it's something that got broken in the update?
Dolphin bar help setup. controller setup
I recently installed a dolphin bar and wi-mote and cannot get it to work in combination with Name lightgun games. The bar is seen by the PI as well as my 2 joysticks and a keyboard. It seems that I can use the "Dpad" on the Wii mote and will move the target sight within the games, however i cannot get the pointer to move when moving the remote.
I have the dolphin bar set on mode 1 and the wii has two lights side-by-side on them and have tried different modes to try and get it working. I also changed the mouse input index on player 3 and player 4, to "0" and "1" they were all set to zero previous. These are the 2 inputs that i have both the wi-mote and keyboard, i did this within the retoarch.cfg file (not sure that's the correct file for Mame).
any help is appreciated on this subject, seems to me that there is a conflict between the keyboard and mouse being on the same index, however when I change them to "0" and "1" i seem to get the same result, to be able to only use the Dpad. all the other buttons seem to respond. thanks for all the help once again.
@Lugzyboy82 Have you read this:
or have you visited https://github.com/iberov/retropie_ipac2_setup_wiki ?
This extensive tutorial has all you need. However, if wired correctly as stated above, it will work out of the box with emulation station.
The guide shows how to add an xboxdrv mapping on a per game basis, or for an entire emulated system. It also details how to start a mapping at RetroPie's launch and automatically switch to per game/system mappings as they're needed, should you have to use xboxdrv across the board.
@drylightn I just tested it myself and what I suggested is still correct. And you should be able to skip with any button on the controller, but that's isn't too important - that you can skip is.
Once you have configured every other controller but before you confirm the controls at the very bottom, use the D pad to move back up to the triggers. Then try to assign the trigger buttons, ensuring that they are set to +AXIS (Mine shows up as 2 and 5 for left and right triggers respectively).
@mitu thanks my roms all backed up way before.
I have 2 sandisk and still get red light no green.
The video I posted above not tested yet will try it when i get home.
It's only one month since i bought it
@TheRetroGamer They're poorly made. I bought a pair for $8US and noticed they used thin wires for the L/R buttons when I was modding one by replacing the shell and buttons from a real snes pad. Re-soldering using the same wires made them give ghost inputs or not work. I replaced them with thicker wires and seems to work for now.
A long term solution would be buying a real super famicom or snes pad and then using a usb adapter. I don't have a usb adapter to tell you which ones work on retropie.
Do you have two controllers connected? If so are you sure you are using what the emulator is considering to be player 1? If you are then it should exit with the SELECT+START exit method on all games. If you do have two controllers connected, disconnect one of them before going into the emulator and see what happens.
To be honest, you should be using an Xbox or PSX type controller on the N64 for better control in game anyway.
