Did someone tried to compile daphne-pi on stretch ?
While it was working fine on jessie, with the same romset, it played blinded and muted on stretch.
I tried to compile with gcc 4.9 and gcc 6.3, same result.
@darksavior i use a wiimote with a classic controller plugged in. I also have a ps1/2 controller to wiimote adapter. The only problem is there is no l3 and r3 on the analogs. I do use the madcatz fightstick for the wii on mame. I think the mayflash dolphinbar was one of the best things i bought for the pi.
@pbrook67 The commands @dudleydes posted should be executed from a command prompt, best to use SSH since you can easily copy & paste the command.
Regarding your other post, I don't what ultimate Intellivision console is, my suggestion would update the emulator (jzintv) to the latest version available in RetroPie, nothing more.
I want to say thanks as well. Retropie is awesome. I started out like most, just looking for a way to easily play old arcade/console games and decided to give this a try. A year and a half later I'm checking into the forums on a daily basis just to read and see what I can learn next (or maybe help with). I put together a second system for family, and have enjoyed the (endless) pursuit of a perfect setup as much as playing.
I'm amazed with the dedication of the devs/community and all the documentation help/answers available, not to mention all the cool projects and themes people have made. It's incredible.
Thank you again for such a cool hobby.
Also, I was wondering if we could add something else to the to-do list. I wanted to know if we could add a tag that is the synopsis.txt file name without the extension (txt). We could just make the tag <filename></filename>.
This might have several uses down the road since this is the exact file name of all of the associated media for every game. Right now it would be great for when I'm working on the spreadsheet as a way of alphabetizing stuff. When we get all the tags in our script with the FULL command, I hope to talk to @mitu about an option in his own script that would transfer over all of the tags that we're using. Otherwise, when we go through the process of turning the spreadsheets all the way back to text files there will be a lot of missing information.
BTW... I'm also going to try to see if somebody on the team here could add more image tags for us to use. And even possibly implement something where you could press a certain button on the controller to scroll through the existing image types. I think it would be awesome if we could have a video preview and an image box that you could scroll through the Boxart, Cart art and Title screen of all of the games.
Right now we only have the <image> and <marquee> tags. If we were to have tags for the tags you've already added like <boxart> to your script, it would eliminate the need to be able to change which image type is the <image> and not require a re-run of the script just to change the image type in the romlist.
Thanks again man! Excited to see you're back in any capacity. :)
@quicksilver said in novice asking a couple of quick questions regarding samples folder and transfers via USB:
if you have a PC on the same network as your pi, why not just use a program like WinSCP to access the files on your pi? You can drag and drop your ROMs, bios, and samples easy as pie ;)
I know I didn't really answer your question but WinSCP (assuming you are using Windows) is really one of the easiest ways to transfer ROMs and access files on your pi. Plus you don't have to wait to transfer everything to your USB drive and then to your pi. If doing bulk transfers I would recommend using a wired connection as it will be faster than wifi.
I can't get the pie to connect via Wi-Fi. I have placed it in an aluminium case, which may be part of the problem, but in any event my Internet connection via Wi-FI, on the rare occasions when it does detect my network, lasts for all of 10 seconds. I set it up yesterday and this is the first hiccup I have encountered. I don't have a Wi-Fi USB stick at hand, so maybe that would help. I can test tomorrow. I am assuming that I require an Internet connection to connect the Pie and the pc, is that simply showing my ignorance? Connecting directly to the router isn't an option due to the layout of the house.
Thanks for taking the time to reply, your advice is exactly what I plan to do. Is WinSCP similar to Putty? Again, I don't really know what I'm talking about, I have just started glancing over file transfer options, but, yes, the USB method is not the planned long-term option and I want to control the Pie via pc somehow or other.
Cheers, and again, thanks for replying.
@bobharris vmemsize=63 was not a mistake. take it off of 64. there is an issue with going above 63. i am using a 1.00 version from the web. here are my dosbox config files and a video starting with the settings im using:
I tried using this theme on different resolutions, screens and aspect ratios and retropie solved well the display, there was only a little offset on the in-game screenshot in RCA displays with smaller resolution. But it was a little detail, otherwise the theme looked good in every screen I tested so Im not planning to adapt the theme yet
Wondering if someone here can help me out with this. Waimea said that their IPAC2 was recognized as 2 gamepads after upgrading the firmware. Reading through the documentation, the IPAC2 definitely will function as 2 separate gamepads with firmware 1.34.
I upgraded to 1.34 and programmed both the P1 and P2 sides of my IPAC2 as gamepad inputs but when I hook it back up, Retropie only sees one gamepad detected? When programming the gamepad inputs, I programmed both P1 and P2 on my IPAC2 identically because I thought that since it looks at each side of the board as a separate gamepad that should be ok? Is this where I've gone wrong?
Any help is much appreciated.
Yellow Devil - Megaman for NES. My favorite game of all time, but this dude really upsets me. I beat him when this game was released in 1987 after many hours/days/weeks of playing. What a game and mini Boss! Down with Dr. Wily!
I've ran into an issue. The mosfet is set to off. I've checked to make sure none of my solder is being shorted. Whenever I plug the power into the NES Pi case slot regardless if the power switch is pushed in or not it will power the system and the pi. If I push the power switch in, it does nothing but if I push it out again it will shutdown the pi but the fans and lights will stay on. Not sure what to do. Is it possible I blew the cap or a diode?
