@darishzone It may be worth checking which kickstart roms you have on your system and making sure that symlinks are being created accordingly.
Could you run the following commands?
Contents in BIOS Folder
cd RetroPie/BIOS ls | grep -i kick
This is my output:
pi@retropie:~/RetroPie/BIOS $ ls | grep -i kick Kickstart v1.3 rev 34.5 (1987)(Commodore)(A500-A1000-A2000-CDTV).rom Kickstart v3.1 rev 40.68 (1993)(Commodore)(A1200).rom
Symlinks in Amiberry WHDBoot configs
cd /opt/retropie/configs/amiga/amiberry/whdboot/save-data/Kickstarts ls -lah
This is my output:
pi@retropie:/opt/retropie/configs/amiga/amiberry/whdboot/save-data/Kickstarts $ ls -lah total 24K drwxr-xr-x 2 pi pi 4.0K Jun 1 07:34 . drwxr-xr-x 6 pi pi 4.0K Apr 19 15:07 .. -rw-r--r-- 1 pi pi 1 Apr 19 15:07 foo.txt lrwxrwxrwx 1 pi pi 112 Jun 1 07:34 kick34005.A500 -> /opt/retropie/emulators/amiberry/kickstarts/Kickstart v1.3 rev 34.5 (1987)(Commodore)(A500-A1000-A2000-CDTV).rom lrwxrwxrwx 1 pi pi 97 Apr 19 15:08 kick40068.A1200 -> /opt/retropie/emulators/amiberry/kickstarts/Kickstart v3.1 rev 40.68 (1993)(Commodore)(A1200).rom
I'm confused now, however i got this
@darishzone In the
Kickstartsfolder, is the entry for
kick34005.A500in red? If so, this means that the symlink is broken.
I can't see all of the kickstart roms in the
BIOSfolder. You only need the two kickstart roms in my previous post so could you remove all kickstarts from the
BIOSfolder except these two and confirm that there are present by running the
ls | grep -i kickcommand in the
@darishzone I renamed my 1.3 Kickstart rom to
Kickstart 1.3.romto match yours and it broke the symlink.
We may be able to fix this by renaming the kickstarts but before we do, we should check that they are valid. Drag your kickstart file into an online CRC32 checker such as this one and check that the values given match those given on this page.
If they do, then try changing the file names as given on the Amiberry Wiki page linked above.
If they don't, then you will need to find valid 1.3 and 3.1 kickstart roms, appropriately named.
Ok, i've done it, it reports following codes
Kickstart 1.3: f6290043
Kickstart 3.1: fc24ae0d
I don't know what i'm doing, lol, but i suspect those files are corrupted?
@darishzone OK, your kickstart roms are not valid and will not work with Amiberry.
Your 3.1 kickstart rom may be fine as the symlink is there and you say some games work. Does Cannon Fodder work?
You will need to find 1.3 kickstart rom. Look for the TOSEC archive.

It seems every game that dsnt use kickstart 1.3 works, otherwise i get black screen.
Delete all symlink files
Add all kickstarts to bios/ folder
Load Amiberry straight to the menu with Amiberry.sh
Select the paths panel
Reset the kickstarts path to the bios/ folder
Press “scan paths”
Go back to the menu
Relaunch a game with WHDLoad (.lha file)
Symlinks should be fixed
Tested Cannon Fodder, it works.
Symlinking for th WHDLoad booter doesn’t care what file names you have.
It hadn’t occurred to me to add a check for “broken” symlinks, but I will look into that
How can i delete symlinks?
What you mean about Bios/folder? I have an Amiga folder on Bios, roms are there, is that right?
Should do it tbh.
You can either put the kickstarts in /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS
But whichever you use, you will need to select the same folder in the Amiberry menu (paths panel) and press “scan”
ALL WORKING NOW
Thank you so much both of you guys for your help :)
Its the right way open for every game the GUI and under INPUT TAB set MOUSE and KEY AS JOY, to map the controls in game?
I cant see any SAVE AS DEFAULT button.
Thank yoy again!
@marcoqwerty After setting your controls in the
Inputtab, if you navigate to the
Configurationstab, check that the Name field matches the filename of your game and then click on
Save. This will create a
.uaeconfig file for your game in the folder
@dudleydes Yes but for the default configuration? there is a special naming convention of the .uae file?
Sorry for the topic...but there is a way to load a DEFAULT configuration (.uae file) after have been crete it in amiberry GUI?
Only to avoid to create tons of .uae files for each games.
I need only the config file pick the controller settings.
I tried to put "default.uae" (in the .lha folder) but didnt works.
My default config file (i trow away all the unneeded lines)
config_description=WHDLoad AutoBoot Configuration
; *** Controller/Input Configuration
joyport1_friendlyname=RetroArch Keyboard as Joystick [Input #1]
; *** Host-Specific
