I tried compressing to mp3 with scummvm_tools and it does play, but the quality is terrible (not only in lr-scummvm, but everywhere). I guess the format is slightly different and scummvm_tools isn't completely compatible. [EDIT: But I only tried once. Might be worth trying to compile scummvm tools from source or try on a different system...]
It seems that Talkie Builders can't create mp3 version directly (but maybe I overlooked something).
EDIT EDIT: Talkie builders can create mp3 versions and they work and sound great.
Did some updates as it turned out that a more recent ScummVM core (2.5+) in lr-scummvm does use the scummvm.ini.
My scummvm_helper.py does apply also again for the lr-scummvm, and:
When a Add Game or Mass Add... is done in lr-scummvm UI it follows the same logic as the native ScummVM:
Make unique game id entries in scummvm.ini by chopping of any variant suffix.
It creates *.svm files, if missing. The *.scummvm extension should only be used by the rom-launcher.sh internally as it might produce doubles in the gamelist if these would be enabled in es_systems.cfg.
For those who want to testdrive:
Create a dedicated <folder>, change to that <folder>. Run a git clone with the URL mentioned above at .
Run retropie_setup.sh / retropie_package.sh as usual in the <folder>/RetroPie-Setup
Anyway i think the solution is the echo file executed as sudo, or some permission problems with that echo line. I have my ROMS in a SMB folder in a server, so maybe that´s the problem...
sudo is not involved in the wrapper script for ScummVM and it shouldn't be - all files in the roms folder should be owned by the installation user and not by root. If you have issues with files being created, check the permissions of your share and try to fix them - it will affect other emulators which will not be able to save in the roms folder.
Hey everyone, im having similar issues, ok so first this first im on rpi4 latest retropie 4.8.
This was the only close issue i could find.
The thing i am having is my gamepad and keyboard wont work when adding XINIT to yabasanshiro emulator.cfg i tested running retropie on desktop but gets hot so i than thought why not reverse it, now all games should be running from vulkan from my understanding and run great but notging works i have to reboot my pi from ssh.
Could this issue be the same for fullscreen or maybe i need to point my config to my key2map for yabasanshiro.
@mitu thank you that did the trick, i found all the paths where already set within the core, and it's good to go.
It seems for them to show up in ES i'd have to manually put a *.scummvm file in each game folder with the game ID.
The *.svm files of the standalone do not work with it, so i think i'll just stick with using the shortcut to the core instead and load the games from there.
@lolonois I am really sorry. I finally got back to playing with the Pi today. I was all set to try out your hard work here. I thought I should begin with an updated ScummVM release, so I did that first. Lo and behold, TLJ works! I was able to boot and play the prologue scene.
