Re: Etcher didn't work for SD card in Win

Just an FYI here, I spent some time trying to flash an SD image using the recommended program, Etcher, and it was completely no-go. I ran it with admin privileges and it still wouldn't write an image. Did you get the " The writer process ended unexpectedly " error a few seconds after starting the w...

Re: RetroArch on Raspbian: the tutorial

Actually, what you have linked is for Lakka, which is a stand-alone image (not retroarch installed on top of raspian) If anyone is reading this and want to install retroarch on top of raspian, I found a great guide here: https://gist.github.com/AlexMax/32e5d038a66ce57253e740ea75736805 You can just f...

Font smaller than Terminus

Hello, I'm using my Pi on a large display with a low resolution, so the text is a little too big, even at the 6x12 size (smallest terminus goes). Can anyone offer a suggestion that will get me a nice basic font that goes smaller than that? I want it to be as close in appearance to Terminus as possib...

Re: Cannot open nano in boot shell

The new install I did of stretch lite worked fine. But the 3 installs of the full package with extra stuff had that same issue.

Re: Cannot open nano in boot shell

A few days ago. I did 3 seperate images. About to do a third of "lite" version of stretch and hopefully it works without your fix.

Is there an updated version of this tutorial available?

I am interested in retroarch on raspbian without retropie.

Re: Cannot open nano in boot shell

This is completely happening to me as well. What do I type into .bashrc in order to make this change persistent? I tried just adding the language to the bottom of the file and it made my system flicker and was unresponsive.

Thanks,

Re: CGA Output from GERT666 (or other GPIO connection)

Ok. I'm bumping this because I ran into a roadblock.
None of the VGA to CGA converters I can find out there actually produce RGBI.

Does anyone know of a way to get 4 bit RGBI out of the pi's GPIO header?

If that's impossible, a true VGA to CGA (RGBI) converter?

Re: CGA Output from GERT666 (or other GPIO connection)

i would be a little suspicious if the output would support a TTL CGA input, but who knows? The problem is those amazon converts don't really offer much in the way of support the 5153 does not have a composite input either, so far as i can tell? which would mean you can't take advantage of programs t...

Re: CGA Output from GERT666 (or other GPIO connection)

Anything is possible, A level shifter is needed to take the 3.3v logic of the pi to 5v then you have the 4 signals for colour Red Green Blue Intensity, then the sync signals Vsync, Hsync You'd need to set the resolution to a maximum of 640x200 You most likely won't get true CGA out but 8 or 16(if y...

CGA Output from GERT666 (or other GPIO connection)

I have a monitor which accepts 4-bit TTL CGA Only. Does anyone know if there is a way to directly output 4-bit TTL from the Raspberry Pi? I know that there exists VGA-CGA converters, but it would be quite difficult to implement in the intended setup. I am looking for a way to output CGA directly fro...
