Re: recalboxOS - emulation platform for RPi and RPi2

Tue Feb 24, 2015 4:43 pm

Hi there.

Great Work with RecalboxOS. But i have an issue regarding the GBA Emulator. I cant start Roms. After starting i see a black screen and it goes back to EmulationStation. This happens with every Rom i tried. GBA BIOS is in the right place in the gPSP Folder. I also copied this BIOS to the BIOS and ROMS folder, but it doesnt work. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I checked the files and they have all the .gba suffix. BTW: they work fine with Visual Boy Advance on my Desktop.

First of all the recalboxOS is really great, I like it but I have a little problem with the sound.
I've got a Raspberry Pi B and when I play a snes rom the sound stutter. The RPi is on extreme speed.
Is it possible to change the cfg for the audio?

Hi,
can you check the file in /boot/config.txt that the overclock is in extrem ? (that means overvolt and arm freq = 1100)

Hey man,

I have a 12TB NAS that I use to store my movies, tv shows, and now some of my roms. I use mostly NFS via Kodi to view my movies. Would it be possible to access my roms via emulationstation?

I'm fighting with the compilation of python in buildroot that doesn't want to compile sqlite3 module... That is what causes issue with kodi extensions....
as soon as it is ok, i'll publish the update.

Yes,
Press F4 to quit emulationstation, then ALT+F2. Or connect via ssh
"root" + "recalboxroot" to connect.

Then

Code: Select all

nano /recalbox/configs/retroarch/retroarchcustom.cfg
and add the lines. Please tell us if it helps :)

I tried to download it on the link but i'm getting 404!
I saw an article about renaming devices that could help on the fba inverted controllers problem! I will try to find it!

Can we get some rough/simple instruction as to how should we go about running createRecalBoxOS.sh and with what happens afterwards?

Something slightly more than "if you wanna hack, run the script and you know what to do?" pretty please? :lol:

Reason I ask is that I would love to have recalboxOS on top of raspbian and Desktop :D

Hi digitalLumberjack


You were not lying when you said this would be easy :mrgreen:
Thanks a bunch

I got what I hope is a easy question. Is there a way to format a 64GB SDXC card to FAT32 file system ?


Thanks again for the awesome distro !

SDFORMATTER won't let you format it ? https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/
