My RetroPie Install Lacking Install Options For ZMachine and Daphne
I am trying to build a RetroPie box on a Raspberry Pi 4, first installing Rasbian Buster (minimal install without the GUI), and then installing RetroPie 4.5.1.
Mostly everything is working fine, just two things that I am perplexed by: looking under the Optional and Experimental packages, I no longer see the option of installing either the Z-Machine Infocom emulator, or the Daphne video-disc emulator. I can't find them, and I can't find anything to indicate that they have been removed from the build.
Is there a way to install them from the command line, or is there a way to get them to show up from the setup screens? I would not be asking here if I hadn't exhausted every online resource that I could think of.
@JasonLeeSmith6 The Pi4 is not supported at the moment.
The new Pi4 is using the new Mesa GL driver and some packages are disabled when this is detected, so most likely that's the reason why some packages/emulators will not be available for installation.

@JasonLeeSmith6 I got daphne working the other day. It's a dirty fix, but it'll do for now.
rp_module_flags. Just in case, I removed
!x86too. Should make it show in retropie-setup.
Since daphne is not optimized, it won't stretch the image, so it was showing around a quarter of the screen. I had to edit each game's
-x 1920 -y 1080since my setup's running at 1080p.
Don't expect support, though. The script is not done. I'm just showing my findings to get stuff going while the devs work on it.
@mitu Yeah, that's what I thought too. I was hoping that there was just a way to install them outside of the RaspiSetup program. Probably just wishful thinking.

@Darksavior Nevermind, I found it. That worked perfectly. I'm getting the quarter of a screen problem too, but that can be fixed. Gotta admit, I think I probably enjoy setting up the RetroPie more than playing the games.
