OpenBOR 6xxx OpenBeta Testphase
I've disabled it for x86
rp_module_flags="!mali !x11 !kms"
This version of OpenBOR is made for ARM. If you are on X86 it should be easy to get a version ;)

I've compiled and used OpenBOR 6xxx for over a year, without any issues, but for about two weeks now - maybe three - trying to compile it has only been giving this message:

@cyperghost Easy to get it built into Retropie like this version is?
I'm just wondering because I'm about to switch to an x86 setup. Are there scripts around that I can run the same way I installed 6510?
For newest branch 6510 for RPi 4:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/crcerror/OpenBOR-63xx-RetroPie-openbeta/master/scriptmodules/openbor-6xxx-RPi4/openbor-v6510-RPi4.sh -O- | tr -d '\r' > /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/ports/openbor-v6510-RPi4.sh
For newest branch 6510 for RPi 3/3B+:
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/crcerror/OpenBOR-63xx-RetroPie-openbeta/master/scriptmodules/openbor-6xxx-RPi3/openbor-v6510-RPi3.sh -O- | tr -d '\r' > /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/ports/openbor-v6510-RPi3.sh

@construkt Yes it's more easy because the make parameter is just linux.
I don't know if Linux versions use the SDL part - here is the patch located that loads the additional files from command line! Try it out. If you manage to get a running version the rest as easy to setup.
I've installed 6510 on my Pi4 (based on raspbian, not ufficially Retropie)
I've copied one pak file (He-Man) on ports/openbor folder
The emulator close itself and return to selection when i open beats of rage... and module sele....
I've notice that the error is
"failed to add service, already in use?"
@roslof i ve your error
What do you mean with active directory?

@construkt you may be aware that the executable is in /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx, but you may want the active directory to be different so Paks, Saves, Screenshots, etc. can exist in a different location.
For me personally (and it's not standard) I've since moved/symlinked Paks, Saves, Screenshots & Logs directories in /opt/retropie/configs/openbor. Yours might be different.
But for me, with my change, I needed to update /opt/retropie/configs/emulators.cfg (adding pushd and popd) to match my directory location:
openbor-6xxx = "pushd /opt/retropie/configs/openbor; /opt/retropie/ports/openbor-6xxx/OpenBOR %ROM%; popd"
So when you launch a rom from EmulationStation, it will launch OpenBOR correctly, but reference my configs/openbor directory to get the Paks and such...
FWIW (and again, this is not standard) my directory structure that works with my emulators.cfg contents:
/Logs --> /dev/shm (symlinked)
/Paks --> /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/openbor/ (symlinked)
@roslof Thanks a lot! the games starts
One problem... they don't save nothing, when i change resolution it returns as default next time i reload the game
same thing for controls
It doesn't generate default.cfg

@cristiano1987 Check directory permissions/ownership, especially for the /Saves directory. Mine is owned by "pi" and set as drwxr-xr-x (or 755).
Thanks a lot @roslof , you're great!
It was a problem with user and group, correct user and group is pi
I've added a lot of titles without issues

I'm confused why are you including that bad libgl on rpi4 , that uses gles which doesn't work unless you force dispmanx , deleting that the compiled bin works fine using the normal rpi4 desktop gl

I'm sorry, I'm terrible with this stuff.
I just installed Retropie on Ubuntu 18.04. I am a complete novice when it comes to literally anything Linux. I have absolutely zero understanding of how to install anything unless I'm handed a script and told where to put it or what to copy/paste into the terminal. From doing that a lot, I'm starting to learn some stuff, but it's really slow going for me, haha.
So, I have Retropie working on the Intel NUC and everything runs great (except for some things like being able to see the desktop whenever I try to play a game but thats a different issue). I don't however, have any idea of how to get OpenBor installed. I copied over my es_systems.cfg and all the rom folders from my Pi, so that is all set up and ready to roll. I just don't know how to get OpenBOR installed and into Retropie.
Is there a wget command I can use to install OpenBOR 6510 in Retropie for x86 so it shows up in the Retropie setup like it did on my RPi4?

Sorry were you trying to link something? I don't see what patch you're referring to. I can't seem to find a script that adds this version of OpenBOR to RetroPie anywhere. I saw someone posted a script with a really, really old version, but nothing recent.
I also don't really understand how to install stuff from github. What commands should I put in the terminal to get OpenBOR installed? It works really well on my Pi, but I'm trying to get it on Ubuntu 18.04 x86 64bit

If the files zip have password is only for personal use of creators.
Please see you message if a offtopic.
Please, administrators, review the case, I am not a julenvitoria, I am just another Spanish user like the one ,we met in other sites, I also asked for the password in his day and I got the answer: please read the rules of the forum, it is for personal use , you can find the roms anywhere, look for them.

I'm not a lawyer, I'm just one more user, who was testing your script openbor and julenvitoria implementations to the script for pi3 and pi4 in a personal telegra group, so if you wanted cyberghost, you could make a request to the RetoPie setup GitHub as recommended, instead of recommending other system.
Thanks for all
It shouldn't be difficult to understand, but our priorities lie with this project. So if someone is to upload some copyrighted software outside of the forum with a password, and then discuss it here, exchanging information, it becomes our problem.
Uploading a passworded archive to the other site (which wasn't mentioned, but wasn't hard to find) is also imho an abuse of that site.
The forum rules are clear, and users are asked to read them and agree on sign up.
Some people don't care or give a thought to the future of RetroPie, so don't expect me to somehow be understanding towards them.
