    We have no issue with people building their own images so long as they follow the licences and don't distribute with copyrighted content. We just don't offer support for this.

    Not sure why you think it's forbidden ? We just don't want links / references to 3rd party images on this forum, or in this case a link to a youtube channel that tells people how to get premade images with roms. It's our forum and our choice.

    @rbaker I think he meant someone else. I found a reference on the forum to a name someone else used rather than "Simply Austin" - I have changed their post (and downvoted it - I assume it wasn't a typo). It wasn't you though.

    All:
    We do not appreciate personal attacks or name calling here.

    I think this thread has got overly heated. I certainly was not making a personal attack. I'm sorry if it felt that way. I was direct, but I don't think I was personal - and it certainly wasn't intended as that.

    I do not like promotion of 3rd party images, or any association of them with this site, even if it's a link to a youtube channel that says where you can get them. I believe the connection with piracy threatens the future of this project and I am tired of dealing with all the problems we have. I regret how popular RetroPie has become.

    Come on, we are both on the same side here, shall we not just work together and try to improve the quality of information that is passed out? I am more than happy to help you and work with guys in any way I can. All I ask in return is a bit of tech help like anyone else from time to time.

    Cheers. We are happy for any contributions to the project. We are also happy to help people who post here.

    If you could stop editing your post so I could reply, it would be great....

    I made a few edits after posting to try and stop the embed plugin from embedding the youtube video. Then I added a small sentence to clarify something. All users can edit posts, and it shouldn't stop anyone replying.

    Nope, no roms (as per normal). Sorry, no reply to your post on my video, but with 100.000s of comments per month it can be hard to keep track sometimes. Not sure what post you are talking about to be flagged by another user? Would one not confirm before accusation, especially before you action something as mentioned in your original post? Talking about 3rd party images on a 3rd party site is against the rules here, should I add some links to people talking about them on here so those users can also be treated like this on their first message on your boards? People can talk about things, its not a crime. If I was to share these images etc... yes and rightfully so.

    Your post was reported by a user who had a reasonable reputation. I checked the post, and remembered I had seen your videos before and had commented on one on the same topic. I made a judgement. I cannot see you actually distributing images, but you have promoted and helped people to find them in your videos. That's up to you of course, but if we don't like that and don't want your channel promoted or linked here, that's up to us.

    I stand by my remark that I believe it to be damaging to RetroPie and the emulation scene. That is my view, whether you agree or not.

    3rd party images... you say they are not supported, in other words you cannot help people as they may contain older builds or modified builds I am guessing. My OP stated nothing about this and was a simple request for help for help while I was making a build. If building images/retropie is against the rules here I guess we all need to ask questions about what we are doing here.

    We don't support them as we have no idea what has been changed on them, most custom images are distributed with roms, and often retropie is sold to users. We do not want to support this activity.

    @simply-austin youtube/watch?v=NNnvXaCeJig - no roms on this one ? if so, then it's possible I made a mistake. You don't ever talk about other images too? I commented on the video some time ago and never got a reply. Others in the comments seem to suggest it does contain roms. I can't remember if I tested the image though. Another user also flagged your post for this reason.

    And the post I linked says to provide information when posting which which was why I mentioned it, plus the rules about help with 3rd party images.

    Others: Feel free to disagree with me - but enough with the language. That's not ok. I made no vulgar personal attack.

    There are users of many ages on this forum, so I would ask you remove your colourful language please.

    I care about this project, and the 3rd party images packed with copyrighted software give RetroPie a bad name. They are also then often sold by other people (makes it easy for them).

  • RE: Model B

    The ControlBlock also finds on the model b. However, one difference between B and B+ is that B needs a bit more power than B+. Depending on your power supply this might lead to instabilities with the power switching component on the ControlBlock, because the MOSFET on it adds a small voltage drop.

    Hope that helps?

  • RE: Custom music in Cannonball - Where do I load the WAV files?

    @jonnykesh does a subfolder work in the install folder? If so we could symlink it

  • RE: Custom music in Cannonball - Where do I load the WAV files?

    @jonnykesh note that when updating this directory will likely be reset/cleared. Would be useful if we can point the music storage location elsewhere in the config - perhaps a feature request for upstream if it doesn't support that.

  • RE: Scraper installation failed

    @chuck_b that's not a complete log - but I can't see any errors in the part you posted. The part I wanted to see is not included.
