Is there some game or interactive way to learn about code language and linux (on Raspberry)? Messing with Raspberry the curiosity itch caught my back and I can't scratch enough. I don't wanna just copy texts and press enter, but know why make such decisions.
I don't know if I made myself clear, thanks in advance.
IMHO the BEST C book is: C How to Program by Deitel. It also covers secure programming and C++. C Programming Language by Ritchie Dennis is also a great book but not for beginners. Avoid the for Dummies books, they're horrible.
Bjarne Stroustrup has written a couple C++ books, they're considered one of the best C++ books. I have them in eBook format but I'm still on the Deitel book.
Most emulators are written in C/C++, the Pi supports C/C++, Linux was written in C. So IMHO better start with C and later C++ and good luck with your coding journey, it will be a lot of fun!
Hey @chipsnblip thanks for the positive feedback! I'm glad you are having fun with this game :)
I've been a bit busy so sorry for the delay replying.
one small request, if possible, could gore be enabled by default (nogore = 0)? it's been a while, but i believe having gore on might be the game's standard default (at least on the linux build).
Yes, the game upstream has gore enabled by default. I decided to disable this in the scriptmodule by default thinking that RetroPie might be used by kids (due to its "cute bunnies" premise). However I might have over-thought it too :)
If @BuZz doesn't have any particular opinion about it, I can send a PR to not force gore on first-install.
Okay folks, I've written up a script to handle this exactly the way I described before.
It runs from the autostart.sh and watches /dev/shm/screen_manager.cfg for updates.
That way any other system process can create/modify that file and this script will respond by either starting the rom, or starting the dashboard.
LocoRoco on PSP has some slowdowns and absolutely maxes out my Pi causing a very quick heat lockup if I don't have the fan on. I would just play it on my actual PSP, but i develop tendon pain after a couple minutes using the PSP anymore.
Enhanced Resolution on the PSX does look great and frankly, if I don't run that or PSP, then I could have stuck with my Pi2. I may try out no enhanced resolution but a shader to see how it runs.
I don't see Dolphin (GC/wii) or the PS2 emulator on a Pi for a long time. It's just not going to be powerful enough on the graphics end. Frankly, I have an XBOX 360 and XBOX One when I want more modern stuff. The X360 still plays a lot of the better original XBOX games.
Heck, my boys are spoiled with their choice of: Xbox 360, Xbox One, PSX, N64, Wii (the version that can play GC games if I bough a GC controller) and Retropie.
Type "emulationstation" without quotes. This should load ES (RetroPie). Go into the RetroPie config menu on the GUI. Choose RetroPie Setup > Configuration / tools > 002 autostart... choose 1 start ES at boot. Cancel back to GUI, and reboot...
