    @kactius How is your issue related to the topic at hand, which is about EmulationStation ? Open a new topic and add the info from https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/3/read-this-first.


  • @mitu sorry, ok maybe it's more of a system error produced by me or something else than something else. And that I don't understand or can't find the correct way to fix it.
    Update my first post in this threat... % solved

    @kactius any luck fixing your issue? I got the exactly same issue as you.
    My uname and iplay is exactly the same.
    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    I still have problems with HDMI audio on my RPI 4 (4GB Ram). I can't hear menu clicks and in-game audio. I downloaded a pre-made iso that has an audio intro (that I can hear fine) then Emulationstation and Retropie are loaded and I can't hear anything.
    I have Emulationstation 2.9.3RP and I updated Retropie and everything else to the latest version as the 21st of October 2020.
    I set the "sound settings" as Default - HDMI - ALSA but the volume is stuck at 0%.

    Could someone help me?

    Best regards,
    Lazza79

    We don't support 3rd party images, use the image from retropie.org.uk/download.


  • @mitu thank you for your quick reply, pardon my ignorance (I am still a linux noob) but once I update retropie and everything else in the system to the latest version present in the server, how a third party ISO differ from the official one?
    Thanks!

    It's configured differently ? Has ROMs ? Has additional installed applications ? We can't be sure how it was configured.


  • @mitu I see, I will try to contact the creator. Thank you!
