Re: recalboxOS - emulation platform for RPi and RPi2

Very exciting! I've been testing other emulation system distros and none are as well put together as recalboxOS. Glad to hear it is still going strong.

Re: Lakka Impressions

Just tried out Lakka for the first time today. Ran into these problems: 1) Lots of systems missing. It has the big ones, but little guys like NGPC and some popular projects like MAME aren't working on RPi. 2) The rom indexing is fast and offline, but it only works with No-Intro romsets. 3) No gui fo...

Re: recalboxOS - emulation platform for RPi and RPi2

Tell me if you all already knew this, but I found a setting with a huge performance boost in Playstation emulation on RPi2. From rgui (hotkey+B) go to "Options" then "Core Options" and change Framekip from 1 to 0. Retroarch must have been configured assuming that PSX would run slow so it was framesk...

Re: recalboxOS - emulation platform for RPi and RPi2

I just got my RPi2 and setup recalbox. I'm very happy with the performance. I also got Wifi working which was a nice bonus. My only trouble is my controller doesn't seem to work on N64. I'm using a Dual Shock 2 through a USB converter. It works with every other system but nothing happens in N64. Cou...

Re: recalboxOS - emulation platform for rPI

Thanks for adding support for select as a hotkey. I had resorted to manually editing your scripts to remove the special commands. This should work much better for retro controllers. RE: PCE CD I'm surprised you've had as much trouble as you've had. I've found the PCE emulator to be very forgiving wi...

Re: retroboxOS - emulation platform for rPI

I spoke too soon! The scraper I mention does work with retroboxOS!

I also was wrong about the remaining storage. It still says "0GB/27GB (0%)" :cry:

I used SD Card Formatter on Windows to format the card as fat32, so that shouldn't be the problem.

Re: retroboxOS - emulation platform for rPI

Just tried with a 32GB card instead of a 4GB and updated to 2.7.1. I still can't see the rom partition in my PC. The storage space does show correctly in the menu now. Is there a way to use sselph's scraper with RetroboxOS? Running it in a folder on my Windows computer is much faster than running th...

Re: retroboxOS - emulation platform for rPI

Thanks for the advice. Using R works perfectly. Though it does mean accidentally activating functions. I'd love to be able to only have R+Start to access the menu and R+Select to exit. I am having trouble accessing the storage by inserting the SD card in my PC. I see the recovery partition but nothi...

Re: retroboxOS - emulation platform for rPI

This works so well! It is very impressive.
Is there a way to set Start+Select as the menu button? I am using USB Super Nintendo controllers and they work for everything I want to use except this.

Re: Script to generate Emulation Station xml for MAME

It worked fantastically! My FBA roms are now all labeled with screenshots and and the script easily handled all of the consoles I threw out of it. Passing the correct arguments was a bit of a pain, but that's mostly because I'm using a tiny handheld keyboard. I'd love to see this integrated into the...

Re: Script to generate Emulation Station xml for MAME

This is incredible! Using this in conjunction with " Fuzzy Rename " and a downloaded screenshot pack makes for a perfectly put together Emulation Station. There hasn't been a lot of attention here, but this script really deserves it! Could you add support for final Burn Alpha? It looks like it just ...
