@mitu No network cable, router is in the next room. It's a Netgear C3000-100NAS. I'm 99% sure it has no MAC filtering, but I'm checking right now.
It has Access Control enabled, set to allow new devices. There are no devices on the blocked devices list.
I've got an Xbox One, PS4, two TVs, a personal laptop, two phones, a tablet, and a work laptop on the network, plus a few friends/family who visit. Never had trouble connecting any of them. Not all of these devices are currently on, so are not using connections, but my points are: it seems unlikely there is any sort of MAC filtering I don't know about, and it would be a massive inconvenience to change the Wifi key.
I went back into /etc/network/interfaces and can't access Wifi from Network Options again. Tried running sudo rfkill unblock all, and nothing. Last time I ran this was after a reboot, so I rebooted again. While rebooting, I noticed a warning in the text crawl - it went by quick, but something like "Failed to start dhcpcd on all interfaces." Hopefully this is a clue!
In case anyone else tries to use a genesis' original switch... middle connects to left or right depending which way the switch is. So you can connect middle to a gpio and one side pin to ground and it will work.
@buzz I am using Ubuntu 14.04
Tried running your fix and it says it's not installed.
Edit2: I'm going to try installing from scratch again with the latest ubuntu
squints "That wiring looks familiar"
I may have my carpentry skill down, but I am always in envy of the artistic skills other people can display. It's a shame about the one side but that is what first runs are for.
One other bit of advice. Be sure to give the outside a few coats of polyurethane or something to protect it after all that hard work on the art.
Looking very nice.
Are you rotating the monitor for the horizontal games? or did you adjust the resolution to fit on the vertical screen? I wasn't sure if the stand had an easy rotation option to flip back and forth.
Second question; how stable is that wheel base for you? It looks rather close, but I do see you have tile floors so pushing on carpet may not be an issue. I always worry about things toppling.

@cyperghost Great work! I'll try it out!
Hello my friend, nice to see you again. Yes give this a try ... OpenBOR gives good gaming experience. About the unpacking of the .pak files - I just tried on Windows ... never on Unix. So I would appreciate a nice feedback about the way you setted the game up.
Maybe @darknior and @BiZzAr721 can upload their joypad configs so I can integrate into this. Biggest respects fly out to darknior - he made the CLI work.
@guybrush said in New TV: Black frame | Undervoltage | Upgrade to Nespi + and 3B+ | Micro SD card:
Will I have problems with smooth gaming when storing the games on the NAS and would the Pi 3+ make a difference in that department?
I'd say the difference you'll see is negligible, since once the game/rom is loaded in the emulator, there's little network activity or file transfers over the network. One exception would be - maybe - CD based games where the game is loaded from the CD images (.iso/.bin/.chd). The network speed would help the loading times. But if you are already content with the Pi 3 and the current setup (ROMs on the NAS), it wouldn't make a noticeable upgrade.
Hello to all of you.
I have an Pi3b+ an i am new to Retropie and Amiberry. After setting up and playing some whdload-Games startet with AmiBerry & whdBooter everything looked fine. But now i have two Games i really want to play, but they wont start at all. The Games are Historyline 1914-1918 and Jaguar XJ220 and i use the .lha-Files from "Retroplay's WHD uploads" like mentioned. Both of them stuck with black Screen and without any Feedback. This Guide telling me for Information i have to delete or rename the "system-configuration"-File in Devs but this Path is not there. For Historyline, i think, i manually have to ad "custom 1=2" for skipping the Intro to anywhere, but i dont know where. To the Configuration(.uae)-File? After two Days of reading and trying i dont know further. Please, can anyone help me?
Thx & Greets
I was following instructions to it. https://github.com/sselph/scraper
$ wget https://github.com/sselph/scraper/releases/download/<release_name>/scraper_rpi2.zip
$ sudo unzip scraper_rpi2.zip scraper -d /usr/local/bin/
ls (shows directory)
It appears that thegamesdb.net isn't up. If you are sure it is use -skip_check to bypass this error.
No sources available (As I already know this was an issue some time ago)
I saw he posted 3 days ago
Thanks for the heads-up. It looks like it has changed. I'll convert the
code over this weekend.
So I'm going to do a bit of waiting and see.
@fishman I believe you would have to first quit Attract Mode and then type "emulationstation" at the command line. I don't know of any other way.
But there are many, many people here far more intelligent than I am about this sort of thing, so maybe someone else would know of a script or other method to do what you want to do.
