@Unknown I made the same mistake when I first started looking into building my first Retropie then remembered that the NeoGeo home console (AES) was essentially the same hardware as the arcade unit (MVS) but could only have one cartridge as opposed to the up to six cartridges of the cabinet.
Sometimes roms can come back with multiple possibilities while being scraped. Scrapers like Skyscraper for example, will usually pick what it thinks is the best match. I believe you can use scrape by checksum to ensure scraping accuracy.
You can always delete the gamelist.xml and re-scrape your roms.
@mitu thanks dude, that was it.
i had removed everything with kodi- before it in
synaptic package manager and then reinstalled kodi
from binary in retropie and restarted retropie/es
and now kodi shows up and runs within ports!
glad to see you're using Amiberry and I guess WHDLoad packages :) I'll do my best to assist but if you don't mind I'd like to keep things as clean as possible. Hence if we could continue on the following thread that would be great. This is where I gave details and working uae files for many different configurations and games.
So for anyone that has this problem in the future this is what I have done:
Update the Retropie script in the retropie config menu
Set the screen resolution & shader I wanted to use in the config menu
Update from source the kid friendly emulation station add on (I tried uninstalling it first but that bricked the image)
Test everything is working, Which for me it now appears to be :)
Rbaker, Thanks for your input.
The kiosk mode I refer to is a experimental emulation station that allows the retro menu and a few other things to be locked out to make them child friendly.
I will also look at getting a bigger PSU.
subfolders are not supported when using gamelists afaik.
Do gamelists house the database-esque lists for every emulators ROMs? (I really know nothing about them to be truthful...just assumed if games weren't showing up I could try and delete the gamelist so it can be rebuilt)
All I know is I have ROM's for NES, SNES, Genesis, and now N64, complete with subfolders. Don't know if deleting the gamelists, or rebuilding all those packages fixed it but it's working so I'm happy.
@BuZz I find it strange that happened. I never messed around with those configuration files because I didn't want to break anything.
Sure enough, I went in and changed the volume to 100 and it's back. Thank you very much.
