After my genius idea to delete all stuff in this discussion, which only cause trouble and chaos, I figured out to do another attempt and post again. This is version 2 of the little app. The gui and commandline are streamlined into one app. The commandline options are flexible now and it supports a configuration file. Unfortunately in GUI mode only one patch file at a time is supported (but I think this is not a real issue and is a limitation in GUI only). And it can create output folders too. Updated the first post with all relevant information.
So with 4.4, most core and main packages installed, but there were a few that wouldn't. lr-stella, lr-pcsx-rearmed failed to build.
So in short - trying this is a mixed bag. Some things will build. Some things won't.
At least the raspberry pi image is a stable platform, but doing PC builds will always be a forever-forward moving target
I see my problem now. When I first read the instructions on the link, I did not understand what he meant by "switching to hardware mode". At the time I did not have the joysticks and did not understand what that meant. Now I do.
I'm going to do some more reading and then give it a try. Just a little nervous because this is a one-way ticket and I really don't feel like shelling out more for another control board if I screw it up.
Thanks to those who read and responded. I love how active this forum is.
Hey there. I'm just wondering if you had any luck with controlling a ServoStik with GPIO? Did you convert the board to hardware mode and have success?
@mitu Ah, that scuppers those plans then. I think I'll give this up as a failed experiment. I did manage to get Kodi to launch from my green button by importing psutil and check_output and changing the code to
This looks grate and just what I need. Do you have a complete idiots guide on how to setup on raspberry pi? I have two ultrastik 360s and two dragon rise joystick buttons i want to combine one ultrastik with one dragon rise for player 1 and the the other two for player 2. I've lost count of how many methods I've found and tried but can't get anything working... Been at it for weeks now. Any help greatly appreciated.
I am a complete noob so a step by step guide is really needed thanks
