[Amiga] Amiberry + WHDLoad = Holy Grail - Amiberry's official thread
Maybe a Wiki page can be created, it would certainly benefit as it would be editable by anyone and would incorporate any progress made.
like this one?
I want to be able to just quit and exit a game via the press on a joypad button or combination of buttons say "select" and "start" just like it workd for my mame arcades in the same retropie build.
THis is exactly what should happen - look in the 'custom controls' section and if you click the Amiga port your controller is connected to you will either see [R] or [N]
The [R] means [Retroarch] and allows start+select to work as normal.
If you have a retroarch controller set up correctly and it still doesiujnt work, it could be a bug and you will need to provide details of your controller but please check you have followed: https://github.com/midwan/amiberry/wiki/Setting-up-Input-Controllers first?
I cannot find <RETROPIE>/roms/amiga-data/_BootWHD/Devs/Kickstarts
This is a directory from the old setup, which is why I thought you're using the old guide.
It is from the old guide, and it's not mentioned in the updated guide either?
@horaceandspider i have reead the wiki relevant sections.
In the Amiberry menu i see DragonRis USB controler and [N] it is just a generic USB game controller board with a Sanwa Joystick and 8 arcade style buttons. I went to the Amiberry GUI and changed the input to Retroarch controller for one game but on the "customised controls" menu then i get "not a valid input controller joystick" when i do that and [.] is empty and the joystick won't respond at all. When i revert back to the "DragonRis" controller the joystick and fire button work but i have the same issue of not being able to quit the game back to the emulator.
What should i do?
My retroarch setup is ok as the hotkey combination works for arcade mame in the same build same pi.
Btw for some reason even though i did the amiberry build from source yesturday i just realaised i go v2.20 and in the istructions @HoraceAndSpider wiki u posted earlyer it is mentioned that "from v2.5 onwards...." could that be the issue ? How do i update Amiberry ? If i do sudo apt get update and upgrade will that work ?
Also i have not updated my Retropi for cuple of months could that be part of the issue too?
I was afraid to update everithing in case i loose my setup, will i?
In the Amiberry menu i see DragonRis USB controler and [N]

right, this explains it... the latest fix which helps DragonRise controllers is v2.21 - this is a development version only at the moment, but I will ask Dimitris when this is likely to be rolled out to the release branch.
The 2.5 you mentioned i think is a typo.
@horaceandspider thank you ! Happy to test a betta version too if possble. Standgin by.
@horaceandspider in the meanwhile is there a workaround that you can suggest by editing a part for the code perhaps ? Maybe i can create a .uae file and define a button of my existing setup to perform quit ? But would nedd a bit of direction on how to.
@horaceandspider Is this normal that every time game is launched from the ES, a controller has to be selected fromthe Amiberry GUI?
I have DualShock 4 and little keyboard with touch pad connected to my Pi (3B+ running latest RPie 4.4). Both work in the ES and other Retroarch and stand alone emulators. In Amiberry, each time I start a game (LHA packed games using WHDLoad feature) I have to enter Amiberry's GUI (using F12 on the keyboard) and then manually select controller for port 1. After that controller works in game and key combination can be used to access GUI.
Is it possible to have mouse selected for port 0 and controller for port 1 of Amiga when games are launched from the ES?
@adriansos666 I have solved issue by updating Amiberry from the source
@horaceandspider Have you had a chance to look at North and South? I can open an issue at the Github if you prefer.
@adriansos666 glad you fixed it. I would recmmend you have a look at the Amiberry WIKI for tips on how to use the
hostprefs.confwhich would help you with this, should you want specific tweaks for mouse/pad etc.
@Mr-Spoc I havent been able to catch up with Dimitris for a few days. There are instructions on the WIKI for how to install Amiberry Development version however, if you would like to build your own binary.
@ dudleydes what was the N&S problem again?
Apologies for slow replies, i have been taking a break from Amiberry coding to work on an Amiga game i am hoping to develop in the future instead... occassionally we all need to branch out to other projects to keep our brains fresh!!
@horaceandspider Of the 30 or so games I've tried, North and South is the only one that doesn't load using WHDLoad auto-booting.
Checking the debug script, I get the message
DOS-Error #205 (object not found) on reading "Disk.1".
These are the Kickstart roms I have in the BIOS folder.
pi@retropie:~/RetroPie/BIOS $ ls | grep -i kick kick34005.A500.RTB Kickstart v1.2 rev 33.180 (1986)(Commodore)(A500-A1000-A2000).rom Kickstart v1.3 rev 34.5 (1987)(Commodore)(A500-A1000-A2000-CDTV).rom Kickstart v2.04 rev 37.175 (1991)(Commodore)(A500+).rom Kickstart v3.0 rev 39.106 (1992)(Commodore)(A1200)[!].rom Kickstart v3.1 rev 40.63 (1993)(Commodore)(A500-A600-A2000).rom Kickstart v3.1 rev 40.68 (1993)(Commodore)(A1200).rom Kickstart v3.1 rev 40.68 (1993)(Commodore)(A4000).rom
Here are the files I have tried:
@horaceandspider could kindly please point me to that part of the wiki, is it this one?
Also Dimitrs has mentioned you about this on the git he asked u a question about the controler.
Thanks. hostprefs.conf was actually first place I started to look. Thanks for excellent set of features put in Amiberry as it is always nice to see that Amiga is still alive.
I have an odd issue with Amiberry and Sega Saturn Adapter by Mayflash, recognized like Ouija. It's impossible to navigate on menu emulator via controller as it register a double input instead of single digit. Any idea how i could resolve this problem?
@horaceandspider and anyone else thar might know too:
How do i use RetroPie's "compile from source"?
Where is that option?
@mr-spoc In the RetroPie setup script where you first installed Amiberry, there should be an option to
Update from source.
@dudleydes thank u i remebered i got it. In retropie GUI there is Amiberry then i selected "update from source".
