Unable to install Lr-MESS2016 from Experimental Tab
SuperFromND last edited by SuperFromND
When I attempt to install the lr-MESS2016 emulator, I get the following error:
Error running 'git clone --recursive --depth 1 https://github.com/libretro/mame2016-libretro.git /home/pi/RetroPie-setup/tmp/build/lr-mess2016' - returned 128
RetroPie Setup script version: 4.2.18
I can't seem to find any instances of anyone else running into this issue.

Okay, I just checked my own log, turns out this might be a space-related issue, if these lines are correct:
... error: unable to create file src/mame/video/xain.cpp (No space left on device) error: unable to write file src/mame/video/xevious.cpp error: unable to write file src/mame/video/xexex.cpp error: unable to create file src/mame/video/xmen.cpp (No space left on device) error: unable to write file src/mame/video/xorworld.cpp error: unable to create file src/mame/video/xxmissio.cpp (No space left on device) error: unable to write file src/mame/video/xybots.cpp error: unable to create file src/mame/video/xyonix.cpp (No space left on device) error: unable to write file src/mame/video/ygv608.cpp error: unable to create file src/mame/video/ygv608.h (No space left on device) error: unable to create file src/mame/video/yiear.cpp (No space left on device) error: unable to write file src/mame/video/yunsun16.cpp ... fatal: cannot create directory at 'src/osd': No space left on device warning: Clone succeeded, but checkout failed.

Yep, this was space-related, however now I have a whole new problem: I can't get anything to boot in it.
I have my directory structured like this:
|-/home/pi/RetroPie/roms folder |scv.zip (the driver file needed for the Super Cassette Vision) -| /scv folder -| astwrs2.zip -| scv.zip (dupe of the same-named zip in /home/pi/RetroPie/roms)
My es_systems.cfg is written like this:
<system> <name>scv</name> <fullname>Super Cassette Vision</fullname> <path>/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/scv</path> <extension>.zip .ZIP</extension> <command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 _SYS_ scv %ROM%</command> <platform>scv</platform> <theme>scv</theme> </system>
My /opt/retropie/configs/scv/emulators.cfg is written like this:
lr-mess2016="/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-mess2016/mess2016_libretro.so --config /opt/retropie/configs/scv/retroarch.cfg %ROM%" default = "lr-mess2016"
And finally, my /opt/retropie/configs/scv/retroarch.cfg is written like this:
# Settings made here will only override settings in the global retroarch.cfg if placed above the #include line input_remapping_directory = /opt/retropie/configs/scv/ #include "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg"
I have these nine lines included in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch-core-options.cfg (technically only three, but I listed them thrice to ensure I didn't miss something):
mame2016_softlists_enable = "enabled" mame2016_softlists_auto_media = "enabled" mame2016_boot_from_cli = "enabled" mess2016_softlists_enable = "enabled" mess2016_softlists_auto_media = "enabled" mess2016_boot_from_cli = "enabled" mame_softlists_enable = "enabled" mame_softlists_auto_media = "enabled" mame_boot_from_cli = "enabled"
When running the emulator with astwrs2.zip, this is the following log output.
I can't seem to deduce what exactly causes this (even after multiple attemts at analyzing the logs, and tweaking the configs to attempt to get it to boot), so if someone could help me out, that would be wonderful.
(also, apalogies for the semi-offtopic post instead of just making a new thread, but that would just feel kinda spammy to me.)

As far as I can tell lr-mess2016 just doesn't work at all. I installed it a few months ago and after wrestling with the program, reading over documentation, experimenting with different ROM naming schemes and directory setups, and making multiple forum threads, I have still never been able to get a single game to work. To be fair, it is still listed under experimental, and this is probably why.
If you want MESS functionality in your RetroPie setup, I only know of two ways that currently work. The first is to use AdvanceMAME 3. This comes packaged with AdvanceMESS and contains setup instructions for adding machines and RetroPie directories. I have used this to successfully run Arcadia 2001, Watara Supervision, and Creatronic Megaduck emulation. However, AdvanceMESS is based on MESS 0.106 and is terribly out of date. As such, it may be missing machines that you want to use.
The second way is to simply install a separate version of MAME or MESS without using the RetroPie-Setup script and then follow the RetroPie documentation for adding an external emulator. I use MAME 0.176 for this purpose, though I may go back to an older version, as performance on some systems such as the Bit Corporation Gamate and Hartung Game Master is abyssmal with emulation running at 66-80% speed. However, this is the only way that I know of to add MESS functionality that is not present in AdvanceMESS.
I'm sorry I can't help with lr-mess2016 specifically, but as far as I can tell, it just does not work, period.

@nowarrivinghere i never got it to ever work either. Advmess is a pain and i only got a handful of systems running on that one.
