How does one add the aa440 or aa4001? I could not find it as a listed system in the set-up script, or as a default emulator selection.
One step forwards, two steps back. I "corrupted" the aa301.cfg file and had to go the delete folders, remove and reinstall the Archimedes 310 slot device route. No matter what I delete and reinstall I get this screen when booting now:
I am wondering if I need to start with a fresh Retropie Setup script, since the same error occurs after multiple re-installs of the emulator.
Strange, don't know exactly, but it looks like your bios files are corrupted.
You could try and remove all your Archimedes installs in RetroPie-Setup the normal way and then try to reinstall.
Of course you are free to wipe and begin from scratch, if that suits you.
The systems are in the default, see here :
I added the 440 and 440/1 to the
All Archimedes systems use now
archimedesas rom directory with these installs.
I have changed this because otherwise we get so many different rom directories.
(only if you install them from the `special systems' though !)
Here is my commit :
I got INVASION running now with the Archimedes 440/1 and 4Mb ram :

You are a retro treasure!!! I wiped the old aa310 and archimedes folders & files, then dropped in your new commit and added the 440/1. I am now happily back in business exploring the Archimedes game catalog .
Not yet seeing how this system was a supposedly superior rival to the Amiga, at least on the gaming front, but continuing to try it out.

Currently on holiday, but will check it out when I return. I have been making my own Carbon themes for lesser known/utilized or forked systems like X68000, PC98, Atomiswave, Naomi, etc...
Can you join this thread, in time ?
Here we are working on the lesser known systems adding them to themes.
I have also forked the carbon theme, as you will see in the thread.
Perhaps it's an idea to "commit" your work.
Reply on your old posts about Alltynex and Mad Stalker.
With the added "-ram 6M" for fmtowns (works good with mame):
- Alltynex is working now
- Mad Stalker can be loaded now, but it freezes when you want to play
(Can you test your version again of Mad Stalker ?)
Pictures of Alltynex (works also in lr-mess, but has some slowdowns on start):
Pictures of Mad Stalker (it freezes on the second picture) :
@Folly Can you give me a quick reminder on how the hell to do this? How do I get ram - 6m working? Do I need to download your fork again?
You can update my script if you want.
Everything is described in the first part of the first post.
The fmtowns system with
-ram 6Mis install-able from the
special systems with slotdevices.
Or if you have fmtowns already installed you can just add
-ram 6Min the lines like this :
lr-mess-system-fmtowns_-ram_6M-cdrm = "/home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/run_mess.sh /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch /opt/retropie/libretrocores/lr-mess/mess_libretro.so /opt/retropie/configs/fmtowns/retroarch.cfg \fmtowns /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/mame -autoframeskip -ui_active -ram 6M -cdrm %ROM%" mame-system-fmtowns_-ram_6M-cdrm = "/opt/retropie/emulators/mame/mame -v -c -ui_active fmtowns -ram 6M -cdrm %ROM%" mame-system-fmtowns_-ram_6M-cdrm-autoframeskip = "/opt/retropie/emulators/mame/mame -v -c -autoframeskip -ui_active fmtowns -ram 6M -cdrm %ROM%"
Let me know if you get it working ;-)

@folly So if I already have fmtowns then I can just amend the emulators.cfg lines for this? I do have that installed, so that should be easy. I'll try that tomorrow!
Yes indeed, this would work.
But you should check the "front-end" script later on.
I works really amazing ;-)
@folly I am sure the script is great, and when I have the time I'll definitely look at it.
Allyntex is looking good on mess, Turbo Outrun runs much better on mame now - definitely playable.
I get Blank Screen with Mad Stalker - which emulator selection are you using for that?
I used mame for "Mad Stalker" but it freezes and therefor is not playable.
I was thinking maybe you have a better version.
I read that fmtowns hash tables are improved in mame 0.235 .
This should mean better game compatibility.
We should test this in the future.
@folly I'll give it a go again but my version wasn't even getting that far...
More compatibility is always good!
