  • Tried it out over the weekend and it's looking good. I look forward to more features being added.

    great work!

    @fnkngrv said in ORA Retropie image for the odroid Xu4:

    On a side note we are more than happy sharing our work with RetroPie itself to assist in providing more official support if so desired. All we need is for someone to reach out to us to discuss.

    could you not just submit the necessary PRs to https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup ? if you're unsure if they're appropriate changes for retropie, here is as a good a forum as any to discuss them.



  • PRs to RetroPie-Setup would be ace then everyone can benefit of changes that aren't just for odroid benefit.

    Pretty much everything that we had to make for modifications where specifically targeted at the hardware that the odroid xu4 as on board. There's really not anything at least that I can think of after several minutes of contemplating that would be a benefit otherwise for other Hardware. If I do think of anything however will be sure to address it.



  • @dankcushions appreciate the feedback. I myself personally I'm pretty new to get hub so I've had a little bit of a interesting time trying to wrap my head around how it all works. We do have our own GitHub however because we do want to remain transparent of course. I'll have to discuss it with the Gent that has been taken care of it so that we can see about doing what you're suggesting here down the road once we feel completely confident that the various compilations are truly stable. My team is a small one so a lot of the general public will end up being guinea pigs of sorts.

    @fnkngrv great! i guess one thing you should be careful of is to make sure that any changes specific to XU4 are only applied to XU4 installs. you can see examples of that kind of thing here: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/blob/58fa73e22b5e816cf05ca9877749a2250e562458/scriptmodules/emulators/amiberry.sh#L38

    another thing is that i would advice limiting each change ("pull request") to single changes (or groups of related changes) as they are easier to evaluate, test and accept.



  • I have been unable to configure any of my controllers via USB. It detects both my dualshock 3 and my Switch Pro controller, but when it prompts you to hold a button to configure it nothing happens. I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong.

    This is not unusual. Lots of controllers are not yet baked into the build. I had the same issue with my XBOX One controller. Just need to be patient while they add support for more. I'm not sure what controllers currently work with the build though.



  • Is there a way to enable SSH currently?



  • @spitfyre1085 its enabled by default the only thing different is we changed the login details to
    username:root
    password: odroid
    for the root acount
    and
    username: pigaming
    password:retopie
    for the default account

    all out images enable this by default because the biggest complaint we see is people needing to use ssh and being unable to do so even worse is when they cant interface with the pi with keyboard and monitor then there left having to mess around with sd cards and changing files just to enable it so we enable it by default so you can use ssh from the moment you burn the image

    if you wish to disable ssh then your welcome to as its easier to disable ssh than it is to enable it in our opinion



  • @reesk92 Thank you so much. Great work on the image BTW.



  • @reesk92 i just got my xu4 today and installed the retropie build,
    but when i connect it to my bartop (that has a 1400x900 pc monitor) it won't show any screen.
    It says "Input Signal Out of Range" than after a few seconds the monitor goes off and switches back on to the "Input Signal Out of Range".
    Any idea how i should get my screen to work? (worked before with my raspberry)

    When i connect it to my tv it works but the screen is a bit stretched so i can't read half of the buttons on the bottom screen. (maby has something to do with it)

    I have been searching for some options how to change resolution or output but can't seem to find anything.

    Also a big thank you for your work!!!!
    Keep it up ;)à

  • @darky2003 I would suggest that you familiarize yourself with a boom to a minimal. That is the base that is used with the xu4 per what is supported by odroid themselves. It leverages a boot ini file rather than a config file like the raspberry boards if you're familiar with those.



  • OK so it looks like this ISN'T working on EMMC. I just tried it on a EMMC and it loads the boot up screen fir a couple of seconds then goes to a black screen where it sits there. I just tried XU4-ORA-Base-RetroPie4.3.8-Public-v1.img. Any one else getting the same?



  • for those wanting a good aftermarket case for there odroid xu4s weve recently had this case released from hard kernal that is just amazing

    features include
    support for 2.5 inch internal hdd
    4 front panel usb ports
    power and user programable buttons on the front
    all major io as well as sd slot accesable from rear

    and perhaps the most amazing feature thats never been seen before in a retropie case

    front panel 2.4inch lcd for displaying system info system logos animations anything you can dream of

    price currently 24 dollars



  • Having a little trouble with 4.3.9 v1.1 image

    according to the change log point #5 "N64 LR-Mupen as default with exception to a few titles that are set to LR-Parallel when identified as a more pleasurable experience"

    Where can I find that list of games changed? Moreover where can I find that file that to manually make its without going through runcommand everytime to verify what if Parallel is being used versus LR-Mupen?

    Thanks



  • Are there any plans to get the Display of the OGST N64 Case working under this retropie image ? i would love to see this working becaus in my opition this image is way better than the ogst image. Really good work !!



  • @nad_22 at some point its not our highest priority because we didnt make the case at no point did the manufacturer even think to consult us as to wether wed like to support it and since the release they have reached out to us offering us the case to work on but still expect us to figure it out for ourselves well support it at some point but were not gonna keep delaying our releases for that screen weve halted eforts for over 6 weeks trying to get that screen working and all its done is break stuff left right and center so sod it were working on more important matters like getting sega saturn emulation working and the screen can either wait or hardkernal can get off there asses and help us support there case



  • Yeah like nad_22 I also bought the OGST N64 Case, but I wholeheartedly subscribe to your ORA image instead. However the case OGST has developed is absolutely stellar and i'd love to see your team be able to take advantage of the LCD on the front. If there is anything us plebs can do to help foster communications between your teams I would gladly entertain some time to doing so.

    Keep up the fantastic work.
