@mitu Thanks for your help. It took me a while to confirm things to get back to you. I was wrong about the save states on the Megadrive Mini. The game saves are there. I thought I had to use the save states lest I lose the data.
I have successfully installed Retropie onto my Linux Mint desktop. Thanks!
The Sharp x68000 is a great platform for some real nice hidden gems. I just wish the emulators were better done with a more professional setup like the wonderful, FS-UAE emulator for Amiga computers. Because too many Sharp x68000 games require multiple disc and that part is not handled as well in these emulators.
Hi Mr the Fish. and everyone.. I'm the guy who gave stevethefish76 the retropie to start him on his fun geeking journey. He introduced me to the wonderful world of x68000 and I gotta say i am blown away. So I've started doing this also and did help Mr the Fish on this. I gave him a copy of my BIOS files and it seems to work for him. Been working with him trying to figure this stuff out. Some games load and some don't load. I'm not sure if its because of the type of rom used or its crc as I see there are multiple versions of things out there. Or if its the version of bios files that we're using. Again its a trial and test.
This is amongst the most trickiest emulation sets to get working at least on the Pi. Doing alot of google-FU and other things im surprised there isnt an all encompassing guide out there. There are bits and pieces which I assembled together to get this working which include multi-disk games.
the only thing i dont know is what exactly is Sharp X68000 Boot ROM (1987)(Sharp).bin that he referred to.
@tuki_cat use the RetroArch RGUI and choose the options in the configuration. Or, modify the global config file in ’/opt/Retropie/configs/all’. Make sure you don't have config_save_on_exit options configured.
