XPAD Patch Error - RetroPie 4.3.7



  • Hello,

    I seem to receiving this error when running the update, I have attempted to remove XPAD and reinstall... however the same error pops up.

  • After running the updater, I've also received the exact same error: "xpad patch retropie.diff failed to apply". Not using any gamepads whatsoever [yet], only a wired keyboard right now, in order to get things set-up/configured.

    I ran the updater on 2 separate freshly-installed systems this week too [including yesterday], all with no errors at all. This is weird. What's happened just today?

    NB. Running RPi3b with latest RetroPie 4.3 (12/17/2017)

    This is now fixed if you update.



  • OK thank you; I will check once I finish transferring over my romset + scrape data.

    BTW: All of you developers, administrators, programmers, tinker'ers... are absolutely amazing!
    You've brought back my childhood... truly!
    Thank you so much for all that you do!

    @nick_p Thanks.



  • Just did the update... no errors! Thank you again!
