@retropi19 in game there should be resolution settings. May have to set it to windowed mode or something too. I can't remember off the top of my head what the ideal settings are. When I have a chance I can boot up the game and see what settings I was using.
Parameters for the emulators are saved in the emulators.cfg file, present in /opt/retropie/configs/apple2. The default launch command for linapple already includes the -1 switch when launching a .dsk image.
If the game is just one floppy disk, why do you need a 2nd floppy argument ?
@sirhenrythe5th (…and others having issues with random custom splash screen videos)
After freshly upgrading to the latest retropi image on both my pi3b+ and my pi4, I ran into this issue again and had to add one more step.
After appending all the desired videos to the list (separate folders in the ‘opt/retropi/supplementary/splashscreen’ folder), disable the randomizer if it is already enabled, enable the randomizer, and select ‘Randomize /etc/splash screens.list’. Now when I reboot both the pi3 and pi4, a random splashscreen plays properly every time.
I did try this with the splash screens placed in /home/pi/retropie/splashscreens but could not get it to work reliably no matter what I did. This is likely due to me having retropie on an sdcard and roms on a usb drive… the usb is often not ready early enough in the boot process for the videos to work. No mods to autostart.sh etc worked either. If you are doing full usb boot, it will probably work keeping the videos in your home splashscreen folder (moving them to the opt supplementary folder is more work anyways).
@sleve_mcdichael i did believe you i just wanted to know other opinions if anybody else could find another way of fixing it without having to start a new image, since theres no way other way around im giving up on this, thank you guys for the help!
The RetroPie setup script already adds a application start (.desktop) file (rpie) in the system, any reason you're not using it ?
In short, runcommand needs a terminal to function, the reason your shortcut doesn't work is the lack of said terminal/tty. If you want to create a shortcut, make sure you start emulationstation from a terminal and not standalone.
Redesigned the gamepad layout editor
You can now disable checking the existence of game files (useful for large game sets)
Improved loading bar
Added Japanese translation (thanks waitingmoon!)
Steam: Updated support for the recent client changes
Theme API: You can now use Qt.labs.qmlmodels (https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qtqml-models-qmlmodule.html)
Theme API: Updated SortFilterProxyModel to the latest version
or could the last half-displayed line of text be cut off or covered (as appears to be the case for Grid View, judging by your screenshot)?
Thank you for detailed feedback.
Unfortunately OMX video override theme image. if you enable OMX playback, video would be on top always. that i can't help
I just change video size as you said. you are right it's better looking
You can hide thumbnail tag by editing theme.xml file- about line 209
wrap with "<!--" and " -->"
list and bottom buttons are just fine with me but I edited it just in case.
I know currently grid view does not work on Pi4.
Performance is not guaranteed, but it will work in the development version of ES - you may need to change VRAM LIMIT high enough.
