@sirhenrythe5th My pleasure. :) About your reflections about Mahjong and adult games, I think that most Retropie users are "normal" retro gamers who prefer action oriented games over turn based ones. Also, many will have kids or are kids themselves. That may explain why board games – Mahjong being one of the most prominent ones – and adult games tend to be mentioned as examples to filter out.
Of course I don't know that for sure, I'm just making a (hopefully halfway educated) guess. :)
@Banci Yehor's guide to the fix is posted. Each line he typed out you will type out yourself step by step, each break in the line signifies a submission.
sudo apt-get update -y && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && sudo reboot
sudo apt-get install git
his fix is the :
sudo ./retropie_packages.sh 833 depends
sudo ./retropie_packages.sh 833 sources
sudo ./retropie_packages.sh 833 build
sudo dpkg -i libsdl2-2.0-0_2.0.10*.deb
after this is done, you head into the setup as normal and launch. I followed his guide myself and it fixed my problem
@RetroPieVin Yeah, I've had no obvious problem with rotating the video prior to starting ES, but I'm running very "low resource" games in this instance.
Like I said depending on which emulator you use it could do either. You could use a split screen mode like MAME2010 provides when you put anything in cocktail video mode or you could use a dip switch for rotating the entire play area for second player like MAME2003 does. You could also use a shader in RA to achieve a split screen affect for simultaneous two player action. (The shader option wouldn't just be for the second player though.)
@GeekOB There doesn't seem to be a crash logged in there, maybe that's why gdb doesn't show anything. You can try starting residualvm directly from the debugger, outside of Emulationstation, it may be easier to capture the crash. Just run
(gdb) file /opt/retropie/emulators/residualvm/bin/residualvm
(gdb) run --fullscreen --joystick=0 --extrapath="/opt/retropie/emulators/residualvm/extra"
then reproduce the crash and try to get a backtrace.
@tix I pushed an update that will fix the issue. no need to install all again, just replace this file https://github.com/Sakitoshi/retropie-crt-tvout/blob/master/to_configs/all/retroarch/shaders/tvout/shaders/box-vert.glsl
you should probably take a look at the expand field of view presets too to be able to see the whole screen since r-type uses a resolution that goes out of a normal crt screen.
@dimetrius isn't batocera based on recalbox? if that's the case I don't want to do it. recalbox is very restrictive with its configs and I wasn't able to make a clean and easy setup (read, not hacky by overriding some important recalbox configs) for it like a year ago when I tried.
you can still take a look at the configs and adapt them if you want. but I don't want to mess with a stubborn environment like recalbox.
@DieKatz that sounds like something that could be configured in each game's service menu.
(so i guess you'd have to connect a keyboard to press left and right arrows at the same time)
@marcoabm Raspbian on a pc is untested, but we can't help without more info.
