Pi Model or other hardware: Pi Model 4 (4GB)
Power Supply used: Official Raspi 4 Powersupply
RetroPie Version Used (eg 3.6, 3.8.1, 4.1 - do not write latest): unofficial 4.5.9
Built From: (Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website)
USB Devices connected: Keyboard Mouse Controller
Controller used: Custom Fightstick with Brooks Board
File: (File with issue - with FULL path)
Attachment of config files: (PLEASE USE PASTEBIN.COM FOR LARGE LOGS)
How to replicate the problem:
I am trying to identify the cache directory with which to place .htc formatted texture files which are compatible with Mupen64plus-next
PC based instructions for installation in Retroarch are
1: Download the Mupen64plus-Next core.
2: Load the core and a game, it doesn't matter which game. This will generate a Mupen64plus in the \system folder of your Retroarch install. (This folder did exist already when I looked in the /home/pi/Retropie/BIOS folder)
3: In your \system\Mupen64plus folder create a new folder called cache and place your .htc format texture packs in this new folder.
4: Now load up Retroarch and a game again and then bring up the Quick Menu > Options and look for Use High-Res textures and Use High-Res Full Alpha Channel. Set both of these to True and close out Retroarch once more.
According to verbose logging
[INFO] [Environ]: SYSTEM_DIRECTORY: "/home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS".
I have tried creating
just by making a cache folder and uploading .htc tex packs to this directory ensure my core was set to lr-mupen64plus.next
Corresponding game will load but texture packs do not apply I have confirmed that the use hi rez textures and full alpha channel options are on and saved.
I have also checked the retroarch.cfg file to see if it is specifying a texture path or cache directory
pi@retropie:/opt/retropie/configs/n64 $ cat retroarch.cfg | grep dir
assets_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/assets"
audio_filter_dir = "default"
bundle_assets_dst_path_subdir = ""
cache_directory = "/tmp/retroarch"
content_history_dir = ""
core_assets_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/downloads"
cursor_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/database/cursors"
dynamic_wallpapers_directory = "default"
input_remapping_directory = "/opt/retropie/configs/n64/"
joypad_autoconfig_dir = "~/.config/retroarch/autoconfig"
libretro_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/cores"
log_dir = "~/.config/retroarch/logs"
overlay_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/overlay"
playlist_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/playlists"
quick_menu_show_save_content_dir_overrides = "true"
recording_config_directory = ""
recording_output_directory = ""
resampler_directory = ""
rgui_browser_directory = "~/RetroPie/roms"
rgui_config_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/config"
runtime_log_directory = "default"
savefile_directory = "default"
savefiles_in_content_dir = "false"
savestate_directory = "default"
savestates_in_content_dir = "false"
screenshot_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/screenshots"
screenshots_in_content_dir = "false"
settings_show_directory = "true"
system_directory = "~/RetroPie/BIOS"
systemfiles_in_content_dir = "false"
thumbnails_directory = "~/.config/retroarch/thumbnails"
video_filter_dir = "default"
video_shader_dir = "~/.config/retroarch/shaders"
The cache directory it lists is simply a tmp cache folder not meant for the texture packs to reside in and again the system directory is specified.
