Colecovision for x86/64 ?
Neo-Rio last edited by
I've built RetroPie on an intelNUC running ubuntu 16.04LTS x64
I'm looking for Colecovision emulators, but there just isn't any.
I note that CoolCV only has a binary for the raspberry pi, so that rules it out (unless the author wants to share the source)
I have managed to build ColEm on ubuntu without much fuss. It does require some X11 libs and zlib1g-dev though. Ideally I'd want it to use SDL though...
Is there any reason why Colem can't be added to the experimental package list?
I posted on the other thread with more details but an x86 build of coolcv is here:
Also technically the following emulators emulate the colecovision to varying degrees:
bluemsx, FBA, AdvMESS, colem, adamem
Personally I prefer coolcv.

OK, I see the coolcv_x86_64 and coolcv_i686 binaries in the latest "all" bundle.
Not sure how I missed this earlier.
In any case, coolcv isn't enabled on retropie x86, so I can't install it from the retropie_setup as it doesn't show up in any of the package lists.
Might be worth adding now? Perhaps try to determine which build would be required (i686,x86_64) at module install time?
Or perhaps just go with i686 for compatibility? (I hardly think it's going to stress the computer's memory :) )
