RetroPie 4.3.17 Stretch images
Is there a way to carry over my roms and scrapes or do I need to do that manually again?
As an aside this is why I keep my roms and scrapes on a USB. Makes swapping out Pi's real easy.

how did you plug in your PS3 controller? Was it recognized immediately over USB, or did you have to install the ps3controller drivers for it?

So, I'm + is up and running.
Anyone else find that games are launching very slowly? I didn't know if it's the image or perhaps my SD card is going bad.

@dirthurts I don't find any meaningful difference in the loading speed, but I'm running them from a USB stick.
All seemed to go well. Paired my PS3 controller via the Bluetooth menu, without the PS3controller driver.
All good so far.

Following an unusual batch of topic about USB mounting, I did some research.
For information, It seems that usbmount is currently broken on raspbian Stretch.
See here https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=192291 for example.
@sano I'll certainly test ours, but we ship with a custom usb mount so it may not be the same problem. Will test on stretch though.

Working great on my non + B. Though in testing this I've come across something I don't understand, and this is probably a newbie thing so I apologize.
On my Jessie build, in lr-mame2010, it's missing the ability to remap controls like I can in lr-mame2003 (Retroarch GUI - "Controls", after "Save Game Remap File"). I've tried uninstalling the 2010 core and reinstalling it, but nothing gives me the options that lr-mame2003 has in Controls. But after downloading this Stretch build, suddenly I have those options back. Is this specific to the Stretch binaries or am I missing something fundamental on my Jessie build?
Screenshots added for illustration.

Im having trouble editing the config file. It appears I don't have permission because Im not the owner. Im using wnscp
@toptrumps What config file ? You have provided no information to go on.
Please do not post a support request without first reading and following the advice in https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first
Please open a new thread providing the information requested.
@ejclassic you're running different versions of mame2010 in those two screenshots. if you updated mame2010 in your jessie build, i think you'd see the same thing. the stretch image presumably has the latest, or close-to-latest version of mame2010.

@dankcushions Nope, the jessie version of mame2010 is current. They are both the current versions unless the RetroPie Setup Menu is not installing the newest one.
@ejclassic you can see the version numbers are different by looking at the commit hash in the screenshots (233fc33 vs 1f6e65a). a retropie update via binary should get the same version, but maybe stretch image has a later version. in any case, you can guarantee getting the absolute latest version by updating the package via source, but this will take 1hr+.
The n64 Emulator Mupen64Plus (it’s the 5th one down, the main one, the only one that any good, under rice) is not working right, 1st time you play a game it works then, The same game will then not work again at all, even if you uninstall and then reinstall and so on. All games work 1st time and then they stop and just go back to the main screen
You mean the main config file, I be thinking in the boot folder, it’s becasue the user is root so it will not upload, you have to put the sd card in your pc as it’s the only part that your pc will see, you then need to edit it with notepad ++ only or you mess it up

I'm seeing a similar issue when changing the video mode on the runcommand screen for N64 emulators. The ROM will not play again - it might even be the same scenario as yours, I can't remember if I actually tried a game more than once.
I'll try again when I get the chance and see if there's anything logged.

@j2001m yes that's correct the main config file in the boot folder. I didn't have this problem with an earlier version of retropie but thanks that worked great. I needed to rotate the screen so I wanted to change the config file

@dankcushions I installed from source and I did indeed receive a newer version of mame2010 that restored the remap controls functionality. Thanks!

I know mine is probably a niche case, but I have just tested the stretch image on a Pi3B+ and mkarcadejoystick appears to be working fine in both raw gpio configuration and via an MCP23017.

@simonster my 2 MK Tournament Sticks run also directly connected via USB.
Also drew had the same problem in a live video
See drew talks YouTube channel, where he tries to over lock it also with problems as you have to press a key on the keyboard on boot, no joke
If any admins need to see the problem live.
I be thinking all the problems linked to this is there is no install from source ( give an error anyways saying no file on download website)
