Fbneo missing? How to get it back?

  • Hi, first post ever.
    I couldn’t find an answer in the forum, maybe because I’m a novice this is common for everyone else.
    I tinkered around with retropie on raspberry pi 3 for a while. When I wanted more n64 performance i started working on retropie on Odroid xu4. Works great. My friend asked me to help him with a raspberry pi 3.
    His favorite rom is arcade-centipede. It works on my Odroid but not on the RPi. I have it on both. I checked the emulator on the Odroid and it’s using fbneo. But that option does not exist on my RPi. I thought I had the same bios and files. Any ideas on how to get fbneo back on the RPi...or a different suggestion to get centipede running? None of the emulators I have just crashes.
    Thanks, Ryan

    That version of retropie is very old and unsupported. You will need to start from the 4.5.1 image. The base os is no longer supported so it's easiest to use a new image and copy across your configs and ROMs.

  • @BuZz ok thanks.
    I was actually able to get it by updating from binary. It showed I had it and that it was installed, but I had to reinstall/update and it’s now working.
