    Now I never get a rom to work after starting the rom the black screen say only on the left bottom "RESET"

    Can someone help me?

    Thanks in advance for suggestions or help.

  • Hi @tuxxx

    The word reset in the bottom left, normally suggests that the hotkey combination for restart is being pressed (default is select + B). Have you reconfigured the inputs or added / removed / configured any new controllers?


  • Hi @tuxxx

    Just re-read your post, if you are using a third-party image, you are not going to get much support around here, even less so if it comes with ROMs installed. The HyperPie images contain many changes to a standard retropie image, none of which we can know.


  • Hey Simonster,

    i know regarding third-party images. But any suggsetion or tipp would maybe help.

    I will reconfigure the xbox controller

    Thanks for help


    I´ve found the error.
    Last night i installed over the retropie setup the xboxdrv - for whatever reason :-)

    Now i uninstalled the driver and it works again with the xbox controller like before.

    Thanks for the help
