@robertybob No problem mate, tell me if it works on your rpi because I have no rpi to test, but for sure it will work on windows if you use the ES version with video support.
Gamelist sound will work for sure, I mean system sound.
The 'system sound' on your theme and mine is not working in the latest Windows builds although it does work on the one by fieldofcows. I'm going to assume it therefore won't work on a Pi with the latest ES :(
@space-cadet I have purchased three power supplies, all with increasing Amp and Voltage. If you have a power supply in mind that can push more than 5.25V at 2.4 amps, I would appreciate it. Also have tried a 5v at 3 amps.
This is a WIP attempt to rebase the latest developments on videosupport for ES with the incredibly out of date Kids, Kiosk UI modes branch of ES.
I have been trying to iron out the kinks that happen when you do stuff like removing the last favorite game while in 'show fav only'-mode and similar uglyness.
Ok so I think I understand the process here involving the USB ROM directory. In the event of a new SD image, once I enable the transfer service in the config menu, the Pi will look to the USB and WON'T mess with any existing files. The .state and .srm files in the USB drive will remain untouched since they won't have existed on the original SD image that I am restoring from.
It might still create a unique event path of it's own. I've never tested it with a Bluetooth controller. If the event name and path are not an option, I'm afraid event numbers are the only other recourse.
WTH did I just read? He cares about RetroPie???? Yeah because he makes $$$ of it. Selling preloaded copies with illegal roms? Couldn't we just report him to Nintendo and let them sue him? I've never seen such a rude person as this guy, robs you and tries to justify it.
I really wonder if Nintendo would sue people like him if you reported them? That would be a good measure against people who're doing these kind of practices.
The scammer is kinda funny. Comes here, shows his ego, what did it do? It only exposed him and placed more heat on this topic. Look how stupid these scammers are.
I think the devs should rename the project, trademark everything they can and go public. Longtime ago I said in a topic I don't want RetroPie to become populair and this is the reason why I said it.
if he's really a good guy, why he tried to use MTurks for downvoting in Reddit?
Haha lmao I bet he doesn't sleep well anymore after he read this topic. He's the kind of person who'll get upset if you give him feedback, keeps thinking the entire day about it, keeping the anger in his heart. It only shows that he isn't happy and his life probably sucks hardcore. That kind of behavior is extremely childish and unprofessional those kind of people will never make it far in their lives, they'll never improve with anything. I really hope Nintendo sues him and gets a high fine he'll never can cough up. With greedy people if you hit their money you'll hit their souls. You just seen how far this guy would go just to make money. Well, he could sell his kidney lol.
@ALNiKO I suspect you may have to configure it in EmulationStation as well, but I'm not sure. Using your working controller launch the controller configuration in EmulationStation and see if it's recognized there.
@InventorTechie There IS an issue even if it's your private account, you're sharing copyrighted files on your account. Soon or late the account would be terminated and the entire project would fall.
I don't think he was suggesting that the files be sharable, but that you can host your own roms in the cloud.
Again a bad idea, the last things the devs of RetroPie could use is a lawsuit. This is just asking for problems.
This is true though. While 'asking for problems' seems harsh, it certainly opens the door for problems.
Well, cloud hosting costs money. Using a private cloud to host your collection of private roms is kinda weird if you ask me. Why would anyone want to do that? You can use even a 128gb SD card and if thats not enough you always can use an external HD.
The topic starter wrote:
"rather than downloading all the ROMs and hosting on a USB/HDD - now that the R/Pi3 is out (with WiFi) - any reason why we can't just connect to a cloud based drive which hosts all the ROMs?"
Even if it was his private collection he simply could buy a 1tb external hdd. But I think he meant a cloud based drive as in an official retropie cloud drive with all the roms. IMO bad idea. Just download them and put them on your SD card or USB drive.
@machuna wow. I can't believe so many people are looking for the same game. We should form a club! :)
Indeed, I had a hard time tracking down the game because even though I have the original CD here and can play it on my ps3, I no longer have a CD drive on my laptop for a few years now, and the game isn't released as "ISS 2000" here in Europe, but only ISS, which matches all the ISS PRO games instead:)
Yes, I confirm the same. I have tested it exhaustively back in September and then around Christmas time after updating the emulator from source. Nothing helped.
Was hopeful that the latest update would help but I see no commits there whatsoever that would seem to help.
Might be worth posting a bug at the actual emulator project:
