Install Giana's Return "Ports" (Ubuntu 18.04)



  • if anyone wants to install Gianas Return on ports
    here is my guide for Ubuntu 18.04 i think 16.04 is the same:

    #install multiarch support & libs
    
    sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
    sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev
    
    #Download & move Gianas Return
    
    su root
    #enter root passwort (if no set root user pass)
    
    mkdir /opt/retropie/ports/giana
    cd /tmp
    wget http://www.retroguru.com/gianas-return/gianas-return-v.latest-linux.tar.gz
    tar xzf gianas-return-v.latest-linux.tar.gz
    mv giana /opt/retropie/ports/giana/
    
    #make executable
    sudo chmod +x /opt/retropie/ports/giana/giana_linux64
    
    #exit root user
    exit
    
    #create folder, simlink & runcommand
    mkdir /opt/retropie/configs/ports/giana
    ln -s /opt/retropie/configs/ports/giana /home/pi/.giana
    
    sudo nano /home/pi/.giana/emulators.cfg
    giana = "pushd /opt/retropie/ports/giana; /opt/retropie/ports/giana/giana_linux64 -fs; popd -fs"
    default = "giana"
    
    sudo nano /home/pi/.giana/giana.cfg
    vol_music=100
    vol_sound=15
    fast=0
    j_jump=0
    j_fire=3
    j_start=7
    j_up=1
    j_down=4
    j_left=8
    j_right=2
    vscroll=1
    k_jump=273
    k_fire=32
    k_start=13
    k_up=273
    k_down=274
    k_left=276
    k_right=275
    mpFlagsOVERSAMPLING=1
    mpResamplingMode=1
    mpFlagsNOISE_REDUCTION=1
    mpFlagsREVERB=0
    mpReverbDepth=0
    mpReverbDelay=40
    mpFlagsMEGABASS=0
    mpBassAmount=0
    mpBassRange=10
    mpFlagsSURROUND=0
    mpSurroundDepth=0
    mpSurroundDelay=5
    

    Add start script to ports

    sudo nano  /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports/"Giana's Return.sh"
    #!/bin/bash
    "/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh" 0 _PORT_ "giana" ""
    

    Have fun...
    p.s. at the Raspberry i'm not able to play with my 8bitdo controller. With ubuntu it works great.
