@Blackhero How are you starting RetroArch ? AFAIK, you need to start with a Disc enabled libretro core for the options to be available. This includes SegaCD, PCEngine-CD, 3DO and Saturn for the PI.
You should start a game in one of these systems and then check if the disk menus (LOAD/DUMP) show up.
@dankcushions I read that entire thread and probably understood .... 10% of it? I recognize that Vulkan and OpenGL were trying to work together but somehow it was creating a second version of itself and causing issues. Despite trying to understand how @treymerkley got to the point of fixing it (running a debug in gdb with bt?) I still don't understand how to get there. I'm not traditionally a linux person.
you don't really have to understand the thread - it was just for reference. the pertinent part of my comment was:
do you have run-ahead enabled in beetle? if so, try turning it off
@Maalik_ I see. I don’t know what happened that made reicast so screwed up recently. I was fortunate because when I built my bartop reicast was working the best it had and then we got access to lr-reicast (now Lr-flycast) and that was working well on the pi and even gave us access to some Naomi and atomiswave games and then all of a sudden it is like both projects fell off a cliff with a ton of users reporting various bugs. Sorry wish I could be more help.
Please add your system info as requested in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first and change the title of the topic to something meaninful. All topics in 'Help and Support' are requesting some help one way or another - how it would be if all topics would be titled Please Help, I need support..
@Xenos I'm using an USB SSD for my roms. It makes it very easy to just unplug it and plug it into my desktop pc to manage roms or images/videos, especially if moving many or big files around, which tends to be very slow over my WLAN connection to the Pi in my DIY upright arcade cabinet.
@Breadbin As long as the system has 4 working controllers (regardless of how they're connected), it should work. The only possible configuration would be in the emulator options, to enable multi-tap if it's not the default.
I tried doing the JSTEST, it detected it alright. But it still does not detect the buttons. It says 13 buttons detected but has four nulls in the end if the list which i think represent the nonfunctional buttons. The driver version is 2.1.0, is there a new one and how do i install it?0_1542835782198_48724714-04F0-45ED-9B52-1B74B2C05B8A.jpeg
