Re: Emulation station not booting up (RetroPie)

Hey guys. If your Raspberry Pi is booting right into LXDE, it's because it's been told to by the raspi-config setup. If you run: sudo raspi-config from your terminal, you can go back into the configuration and turn off "start desktop on boot" or something similar to that. After doing that, go back i...

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

I wrote a n00bs guide to getting RetroPie all installed and setup. I'm quite the n00b myself, so figuring all of this out was quite the learning experience.

Check out my build project: Build Log: http://imgur.com/a/qhxfh Video Demo: http://youtu.be/MocIb-Ya8ms Everything seems to be running smooth, except for sound (it works in some games for a while, then stops.

Re: RetroArch Emulator Frontend

Does anybody know if the retroarch.cfg accepts inputs from the GPIO pins? If it does not, is there something I could add to the retroarch.cfg to set it up to allow input from the GPIO pins? Maybe something like: GPIO.setup(13, GPIO.IN) input_exit_emulator_btn = GPIO.input(13, True) Theoretically mak...

Re: RetroArch Emulator Frontend

Hey everybody. I've made a lot of progress, but I'm stuck at one part. I now have my RPi boot up, and automatically launch EmulationStation (Big ups to Aloshi for that). I can then control the EmulationStation frontend with my RetroLink SNES controller, and pick a rom to play, and launch it. Then th...
