Quick Setup Arcade X-Men Vs Street Fighter
Hi guys, I have a Raspberry Pi Retropie Gamer's Kit on its way, and an old friend coming over to play it next weekend... I'm a total newbie to this system, and PC gaming in general, and am asking for a quick setup guide from unboxing the system to running this game. I have 2 x Xbox Hori VX Fighting Sticks I was hoping to use with it too.
Thanks in advance,

Gamer's Kit? You got ripped off. Ask whoever sold you that "kit". There's just general guides here for people that start from scratch with a clean image: https://retropie.org.uk/docs/
@Darksavior it comes with 2 Super Nintendo style controllers, case, 8gb card and HDMI for $15 more than standard, don't think I got ripped off... thanks for the guide link
@sadtraxx $15 more than what?
@TMNTturtlguy standard Pi I believe
@sadtraxx not sure how much a standard pi costs where you are, but I can guarantee that if you received a case, ad card and 2 functioning controllers for only $15 more than a standard pi you did not receive new, authentic, and good functioning components. A quick online search of all the components will tell you that something seems wrong to get all of that for such a low price. I wouldn't call what you got a good deal.
firstly, do this: https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/First-Installation
for the 'transferring roms' section, i would suggest getting a full 0.2.97.40 FBA romset, then transferring this to the /roms/fba/ folder.
the full FBA romset is much bigger than this, so once you have it, look for the games you want to play here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GaqIIoiWbzKHwZ52S2xCSDQXILo81Ls1mHK6czKGAtM/edit#gid=1671511927
the filename in the romset will the same as the name column. for example, xmen vs streetfighter is xmvsf.zip
@TMNTturtlguy thanks for your response to a question I didn't ask, but I've tested the parts recently, and they're from a reputable supplier... and I'm happy with the price I paid.
@dankcushions thank you very much for that! I'll let you know how I go. Cheers
@sadtraxx your very welcome, glad i helped! I will be sure to follow you so i can help with future issues as well.
Just to add to what has already been said, Kirstie Alley was the name of the actress who became the main female lead on the 80s American television show 'Cheers' after Shelley Long left to pursue a movie career. That career primarily consisted of 'Troop Beverly Hills' and 'Don't Tell Her It's Me', where she played the sister role to Steve Guttenberg as he pretended to be a tough, motorcycle-driving Australian to trick a woman into spending time with him.
@TMNTturtlguy I think you read the wrong reply
@sadtraxx no, I am sure I read the correct one, I thought my response was obvious enough. I think the others got it and your attempt to point this out to me makes me even more excited to help in the future. Best - TMNTturtlguy
The worst part of all this is that now I can't get this superbly lousy movie out of my head.
@dankcushions ok, so I think I've followed those guides, and still cannot seem to get the unzipped xmvsf rom to boot... notice anything I've done wrong?
using this system, with retropie preloaded (I've updated it to the latest version):
downloaded xmvsf.zip from CENSORED
inserted fat32 USB into Raspberry Pi
inserted USB back into MacBook
unzipped and dragged xmvsf folder into (Pi created) roms folder in retropie folder on USB
inserted USB into Raspberry Pi
reset emulation station
game not there :(
... do I need to drag the xmvsf folder into any particular folder inside roms folder on USB? like fba or arcade?
do I need to update noobs?
do I need to get xmvsf file from a different source?
@dankcushions by the way, on the main retropie screen it has a bar under the 3 retropie logos that says CONFIGURATION. I haven't been asked to login as yet, is this something I need to address?
ok, so I think I've followed those guides, and still cannot seem to get the unzipped xmvsf rom to boot... notice anything I've done wrong?
- buy an unlicensed retropie product
- unzipped the a mame rom
- put it in wrong place
- mentioned the place you downloaded the rom
- wrong romset
@dankcushions it's an unlicensed retropie product? really? how is that possible from a reputed supplier?
I wasn't supposed to unzip the xmvsf.zip file?
where am I supposed to put it?
sorry I mentioned the place I downloaded the rom :(
what is the right romset please?
