Two things about 4.5



  • Hey there,

    Thanks for releasing 4.5, great work as usual!
    Just two questions:

    I just read that composite out is broken in this release. As far as i use a second Pi on a CRT: should i stay on 4.4.15 with this one or will there follow a 4.5.1?

    Concerning the Hidden BIOS Files by default in Mame: i just read this in the log.
    Before i was wondering if i accidently deleted them 😊, i used to hide them and one day they were not even shown in full mode. Now i know why but two are still visible: "Akklaim PSX" and "NAOMI".
    Just for Info - this is not a bad issue of course! 😉



  • You can fix the composite out by downgrading the kernel

    If you choose not to update the OS and packages during the RetroPie-Setup, the new Kernel version pulled in by 4.5 for the Bluetooth fix will not be applied and the composite output should not be affected.

    This has been present for quite some time in the latest Emulationstation versions (2.8.x), 4.4 was released with 2.7.6 and didn't have this feature.

    Thanks for reporting the new bios files, we'll see to update the list. The Naomi bios I know is naomi.zip, what's the file name for the other ?



  • Thank you both, so i will not update my CRT-Setup and everything stays fine.
    This image works great and so there is no need to update it.

    @mitu i cant look right now, im in holidays on the Island of Usedom, but will return home this weekend. I will have a look then!

    I see that the zip names for those 2 BIOS files are set to be hidden (https://github.com/RetroPie/EmulationStation/blob/master/resources/mamebioses.xml), but they are hidden only in an arcade or neogeo system AFAIR. You might check if they're present in another folder/system.

    Have a fun holiday!



  • @mitu thank you Mitu!!! 👍😎

    The BIOS Files are in the rom folder of "AdvanceMame".
    It were about 40, which i renamed to (i.e.) "ZZZ BIOS - CPS1" to get them all together on the bottom of the gamelist and hide them.
    As mentioned the only two ones that are still visible since a couple of weeks in full mode are Akklaim PSX and Naomi.
    It does not really disturb me!!!, but i will Post the filenames as soon as i am back on my Pi 😉
