RetroPie 3.8.1 is released

  • administrators

    A few bugs slipped into RetroPie 3.8 – most notably the launch commandline for DOSBox/RPIx86 was wrong, causing it to not work when launching DOS games directly from Emulation Station. There was also a problem building the gamecon gpio driver. These issues have been fixed, along with some other changes.

    NOTE: There are currently problems with the XBox/XBox 360 controller driver xboxdrv caused by a Raspbian kernel update. This can be worked around by rolling back the Kernel. More details can be found on the forum.

    The Prebuilt images are also available directly from GitHub – You can also install RetroPie on top of an existing Raspbian set up – Instructions can be found at the GitHub project site.

    Changes since 3.8:

    • Don’t overwrite existing configs when updating advmame.
    • SSelph’s scraper – Add option to set -append and -use_nointro_name=false flags
