As a step towards an increased usability I have just committed an update for >>the script<< that implements the generation of a debug log. That log includes all relevant information about files and settings that are important for the RetroPie installation.petrockblog wrote:Hmm, it seems as if it is definitely time that I or someone else take time to implement error checking and other integrity checks for the setup script.telarium wrote:Interesting that it didn't provide any errors that RetroArch didn't exist.
When i start "emulationstation" it shows mame roms, but how can i change to snes or megadrive roms? (the roms are in the right folders...)Aloshi wrote:For EmulationStation or RetroArch?
You could also use the "new" debug log function of the script in the menu "Setup"). Quite at the end of debug.log a check for unrecognized ROMs is done.Aloshi wrote:Left and right change the system, but if that's not working ES probably didn't detect any ROMs for the other systems (you can check this by typing "clear" in the console, then running ES, and reading the output - if a system can't find any games it'll error). This could happen for any number of reasons. Check that your ROMs match the file extension and path set with "nano ~/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg".
Glad to help...

.p.s DD you might want to start from scratch on a newly imaged sd card if you have one. The path you're currently following may just end up in frustration

For RetroArch the keyboard mapping can be changed in /etc/retroarch.cfg withrhart wrote:In what config file can we change the keyboard mapping and the screen resolution? I have been looking around for the past few days and have not been able to find a place where this worked.
Code: Select all

You can use the "sort alphabetically" function in the setup menu of the script. This will move the roms into subdirectories "a" to "z". Then you can run the ES-scraper (also from within the setup menu) to download meta data for the roms.El_Presidente wrote:Got through the RetroPie install and have emulationstation up nicely - so big thanks to all involved.
I have a lot of MAME ROMs and it takes ages to scroll down the list alphabetically, plus I only ever get the internal ROM name, many of which are hard to work out. Are there options to page down or jump to a start letter, or even to display more than around 8-10 roms per screen page?
Issue 1 - Ideally there would a link to a database to show the ROM friendly name.
Issue 2 - slow scroll speed. All I can do is roll slowly from the start or slowly back from the end. Trust me, a ROM starting with any letter H-S just takes 10 minutes to get to!!!
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Maybe >>this thread<< is of help for you. I do not have any experience with modifying the resolution on the RPi, though.rhart wrote:Also, where is the resolution changed at? I've tried editing /etc/retroarch.cfg but it has had no effect.
I have no experience with RaspBMC, sorry! Maybe someone else could help here!?RaspDD wrote:Ok, iam back .
Because of USB SOund issues i switched to RaspBMC RC 4.
I installed the station with the script, but it wont start:
This sounds promising... the whole reason I was learning about the emulators was to eventually try it with RaspBMC!MCBTay wrote:RaspDD I was exactly where you were with the openVG.so file. Simply running rpi-update fixed it for me. Not sure if it will help you, but maybe
Did you follow a certain guide for installing AdvanceMAME? Do you think that it should be included into the RetroPie script? I did not have a closer look at it yet ...ajberry wrote:So I ran sudo apt-get update and my sound seems to work fine for snes games
I am still having issues with mame running slow in games and terrible sound. Has anyone got advance mame working with sound yet? Once I have that a working I can then work on my cabinet...
