Re: RetroPie Setup - Auto-installer/updater for RetroArch ga

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 :) This sounds promising... the whole reason I was learning about the emulators was to eventually try it with RaspBMC! After reading through the elinux tro...

Re: Best Distro for my needs (XBMC/SABnzbd,SB/CPS)

I have had no problems with the vanilla RaspBMC since the 'finished' version was released a couple of weeks ago. Highly recommend a USB hub and wireless keyboard/mouse setup. The Android XBC remote Apps work fine also. Be wary of some of the skins though; the flashier they are, the more sluggish the...

Re: RetroPie Setup - Auto-installer/updater for RetroArch ga

DD, .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 ;-) I followed your hint and left the path of frustration and entered the path of enlightenment ;-) - i started from image again, and now th...

Re: The GamePi - Raspberry Pi Game Boy case mod

Dang!
I found out about this via the Adafruit link to the YouTube video and completely missed that there was a link to the forum... D'Oh! :oops:
So I posted my dumb questions in YouTube and have now had at least two of them answered after reading this thread :lol:

Re: RetroPie Setup - Auto-installer/updater for RetroArch ga

My only request is that you please post or point to a list on a web-page the instructions as I'm struggling to remember where all the little nuggets of relevant information - config files, default keyboard mapping' etc - can be found. :roll: I hate it when I comment only to then find what I'm looki...

Re: RetroPie Setup - Auto-installer/updater for RetroArch ga

DD, Only MAME supports .zip files and you have to make sure that they're in the correct ROM folder for the emulator you want to run. Similarly some SNES ROMs are archived with 7z but these are typically multiple version of the one game and you have to extract the rom you want - which will have the s...

Re: Boot/Display problems

The issue of the cost of the power supply is a state of mind. Below is a picture of an Au$15.00 (about US$15.00 / 10 UK pounds) 1A dual-ouput piggy-back wall-wart (not intended to be an ad, just an example, and yes, it's the ANZ configuration but I'm sure that users' respective countries will have s...

I have the Pi hooked up to a Chimei CMV222H monitor via HDMI. As far as I'm aware, I have the stock, current build of Raspian. I haven't tweaked anything, reset memory allocation, etc. My experience to date trying to get audio to work, beginning with 'stock' Raspbian: 1. No audio on HDMI, regardless...

Re: Why not program on x86 desktop?

You cannot teach kids - or anyone for that matter - the relatively simple concepts behind programmable automation with a PC cheaply since the two main IO ports with a decent history and user configurability in them have all but disappeared (Parallel and non-USB serial ports). You can demonstrate aut...

To the MagPi Team, Great effort guys! The hardware and programming content takes me right back to my youth when Home Computers were just becoming 'common-place' and I was keen on electronics.
