Macintosh Retropie emulation
@edmaul69 ok this is weird
It says size 28gb used 26g and 88m avail use 100%
It's a 128gb card
I did use an app to condense my image backup to a 64gb sd for another project could that be what is happening?
Can this be fixed?
@edmaul69 i fixed it with sd clone app
it had an expand feature
87 gb available now and i will go forward and see if that fixed the issue :)
ill correct those things too
@edmaul69 replacing text to the following
basilisk = "/opt/retropie/emulators/basilisk/bin/BasiliskII --rom /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/macintosh/QUAD650.rom --disk /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/macintosh/mac.img --extfs /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/macintosh --config /opt/retropie/configs/macintosh/basiliskii.cfg"
default = "basilisk"
@edmaul69 didn't work again lol
i rebooted the system too after i made the changes.
i have the mac.img in the rom folder too
and ps. the games open now too so it was the sd card size which is now fixed.
but doesn't explain the os not starting up
@briandamico all of this info in the emulators.cfg is all on one line right? Wont work if it isnt.
@edmaul69 i believe so. i will triple check that.
i simply copied and pasted what you posted. no breaks of any sort
granted in terminal, its two lines but its continuous
@briandamico yes two lines.
@briandamico i found the problem. you told me QUAD650.rom when your actual rom file is QUAD650.ROM. caps and lowercase even on the file extension is important. you need to make sure that the rom and image files and what is written in the emulators.cfg is identical for both of those files
@edmaul69 ITS ALIVE
thank you Ed!!!
its up and running lol
how fun is this!!!
now just the apple ii keyboard and I'm all set to time travel back to the 80s lol
@briandamico can you post a pic of your adb keyboard?
@edmaul69 ok so i wanted to show you this
this is a photo of two games, visible, on my mac running basilisk which can be opened and played.
now on the pi3, when i load the mac, and go to the same location the games folder is, the file icon is completely white and they won't open like they do on basilisk on my actual iMac.
@edmaul69 here is the photo on the pi now
you can see the files are solid white.
so just a bit baffled why that would be as everything else makes sense
@briandamico what color setting is os using on your mac and what do you have on your pi?
@edmaul69 forgive me, i am not aware of what color setting does. but what i do know is when i try to open any of them they bring up an error where as on the actual mac version, they open.
@briandamico ok. Here is what you need to do. On the pi try setting the color to 32 bit or whatever the highest setting is. Then try to play the game. If it doesnt work you need to tell me the exact error and i will tell you how to fix.
hey ed, ok so while i wait for the keyboard stuff to come, i am going to get back to this. now you said to go to the pi setting and go to 32 bit.
is this in retro pie settings or settings on the macintosh OS itself ?
@briandamico take all your games and apps you have and put them in your macintosh folder on your pi. The unix hard drive is that folder. So now you can open up the unix drive, drag an app onto the desktop and install it. Then on the macintosh drive if there isnt a games folder create one. Then put all your installed games in there.
when i was saying 32 bit i was talking about changing the color inside mac os. It doesnt use bits for its color. Its like 16 colors, 256 colors, millions, and billions. But dont worry about that at the moment
@edmaul69 ok i have a shared folder that is in the Macintosh roms folder which has the games folder in it. i moved that over the macintosh HD icon
was that not good enough
should i have the games folder directly in the main area and not in a sub folder
