Select runcommand from the RetroPie menu (or through configuration/tools in RetroPie-Setup). Ensure Launch menu is enabled. Check Launch menu joystick control. If joystick control is disabled, either enable it, or use a keyboard plugged into any USB port, instead of the gamepad, to access the launch menu.
@mitu True, although obviously many people have it running fine from a desktop session (I did before these issues).
Sure, but that's not a configuration that's tested and supported.
I have just tried running RetroPie from boot and it seems to be working fine with local ROMs, but not with ROMs using symlinks (which were working fine before). So I guess that's one issue (sort of) solved and another found!
Can you add more details - and possibly the log file asked earlier, not that Runcommand should be working again ?
I seem to have fixed this. I found a page (here) with a few extra instructions on suppressing various messages. I haven't implemented them all but it seems the one or two I have added have done the trick! I'd already added one or two of these as per the excellent Retropie docs, but the extra bits here seem to have done the trick. Been mashing about the menu for a couple of hours, and rebooted several times and so far it has not returned.
Thanks for your help. Thrilled to get it working so nice! :-)
Ok, so I've created separate emulator.cfg for each version of CSBwin I'm using and that works fine.
But now I have troubles with Der Clou again. After a reboot I can't start it from ES anymore, I get:
ERROR: Module Dsk: Open :./pictures/bubble.fnt
And it seems to be a path issues, because I get the same error when I try to run the binary from the menu in Raspbian.
I can run it when I go to the directory manually at the command promt. So my guess is that the script not goes into the directory and thats why it can't find the datafiles anymore. Weird thing is, that I can run it from ES after I started it once from the command promt.
Also i just noticed that I can't save because of restrictions. D:
When you copy files over from a Mac it makes a duplicate junk file that begins with ._. You'll ultimately want to switch to a transfer program like Cyberduck to avoid the issue. You can get rid of the junk files that are currently there by dropping to the command line (F4) or using ssh and typing:
@mitu I think no. But i dont really know if something change or not... or if i did it wrong when I writed that lines (no error message, just go down to the next line) but still having the same problem with the blue menu "in game"
Just another stupid question for my part, .how I can restart the rasp, or the system in the command menu (this one we are working) because I don't know if need to restart or save the changes.
@bmos are you using the RetroAchievements feature? It can cause this issue. The retroachievements.org server isn't that powerful and this delay can be caused when RetroArch is trying to communicate with it.
Ok, some news ! it seems that large part of my rom files were corrupted. So I "found" new one and everything work like a charm now ! So Thank you and bravo for this very very pleasant RetroPi distribution ! I think I'll make a donation so !
