@meleu said in Useful topics/posts index:
pay attention at the bottom of the screen, you should note something saying Enter tags here, between 3 and 15 characters each.
Thanks! Found it.
Grey font on a white background on something that does not resemble a text input field in the slightest. Nice troll.
@mitu said in Update failed error cannot open .git/FETCH_HEAD: Read only file system:
Check the dmesg output after trying re-mounting with the rw flag, the card may be reverting to read-only automatically if damaged.
this is what i got
[ 0.907347] EXT4-fs (mmcblk0p2): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode. Opts: (null)

@lostless said in Sega CD ROMS Fail to Load:
@Metal-Ghost you can just duplicate the bios file and rename it for genesis plus gx. Then you’ll have a bios for both picodrive and genesis plus gx
Or you can do this in RetroPie:
Press F4 in Emulation Station to get to the command shell.
Enter cd RetroPie/BIOS/ to go to the BIOS directory.
Copy the BIOS file to another with the correct name for lr-genesis-plus-gx with the command cp us_scd1_9210.bin bios_CD_U.bin. (Mind the capitalization, as Linux does, too.)
Or even quicker but more write-intensive, do 2. and 3. in one command:
cp RetroPie/BIOS/us_scd1_9210.bin RetroPie/BIOS/bios_CD_U.bin
Return to Emulation Station with exit.
It may have to do with the fact that Windows text files use CR+LF (Carriage Return + Line Feed) for line endings, wheras unixoid systems like Linux use only LF.
You can convert text files between the different formats on Linux (i.e. RetroPie, too) with the tools dos2unix and unix2dos.
This command installs both tools as well as mac2unix and unix2mac:
sudo apt install dos2unix
Then you can convert a file with
dos2unix pokemon.txt pokemon.cfg
and vice versa with unix2dos.
@mitu i don't know why. On another cards with Raspbian and Kodi i have polish letters there no :/
I see some errors when i try change keyboard layout in raspi-config - console says not found anything
and this error Volume control init: Failed to find mixer elements im fix this
@bollwerk said in How to configure both analog stick and d-pad for retroarch arcade config?:
I assume the Arduino config (or any joypad input config) overrides the retroarch.cfg in some way?
Your configuration in retroarch.cfg - as it is right now - configures a keyboard.
input_player1_r = "w"
When configuring a gamepad, the syntax is different:
input_player1_r_btn = "12"
RetroArch will load - indeed - the configuration from the autoconfig sub-folder if it finds one. The gamepad's auto-configuration file was generated by EmulationStation when you configured the gamepad in the Input Configuration step.
I find it easier to open up the RetroArch's menu (via Hotkey + X) and use the Controls menu to change things, test them and then save it with a Core input configuration remap.
For more details, see https://retropie.org.uk/docs/RetroArch-Configuration/.
@cnoto said in Mapping one input to a combination of two buttons for Genesis and Snes:
Have you tried doing it manually by editing and loading a rmp file?
IE: the ones for Megadrive are located at "/opt/retropie/configs/megadrive/Genesis Plus GX/"
@Skervix said in memory card capacity:
@mitu I tried that command and it says I have 304 MB free in dev/root. So Im guessing thats enough for a few game saves. I also Uninstalled the themes I'm not using and even a few games I'm not using.
Usually 5% of the capacity of the filesystem is reserved for the root user, so a simple user doesn't accidentally fill up the disc and crashed the system.
Depending on your card size, you might be below the 5% reserved and you may be unable to write new files, even if there is free space available.
@comet424 said in SSD doesnt always mount:
what is the 0 and 2 in that line..
Its about dumping and checking the file system. See https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/38125/htg-explains-what-is-the-linux-fstab-and-how-does-it-work/ → Dumping and Fscking, or https://manpages.debian.org/stretch/mount/fstab.5.en.html → fifth and sixth field.
You can either leave that at 0 2, or change it to 0 0 for no auto-checking, since although Linux' fsck can also check NTFS volumes, foreign formats should rather be checked on their native system IMHO.
