Re: Reset 1-wire Bus - DS18B20

I'm having the same issue with Cayenne IOT.
Randomly my one-wire temp sensors seem to go offline.
Every temp reads 32 degs F.

The only way to get them back is to power down the RPI2.

They worked fine for months so i'm lost on what the issue is.

Re: Pi 3 & Retropie vs Ouya for Emulation. Honest Opinions?

I have Nostalgia installed on my OUYA for an emulator front end. I use the default n64 emulator also. I think the only game with issues is yoshi's island from what I remember. Even smash bros with hi-res textures works pretty good on my ouya if I keep it at 640x480. Even at that lower resolution it ...

Re: Game console GUI

I would just take a look at Attract Mode emulator front end.
It will let you launch games, not just emulators and you can theme it almost anyway you want.

This is cool.
Would be interested in seeing how I could duplicate this myself.

Would RFID's work for the playing pieces instead?

Re: Pi 3 power supply & USB cable

I have a pi 3.
Was using a 2A powersupply and getting rainbow cube.
bought an "official" 2.4a supply from MCM with a 2nd rpi3 and still get the rainbow when I compile things with more than one core or other cpu intensive tasks.

Not sure what to do now other than buy what?
a 3 amp powerbrick?

You would need to compile advmame 1.4 yourself.
another option is mame .72 is now out in the wild via retroarch.

Re: Steam OS w/ Pi Cluster

no.
Not only would the steam client have to be compiled for arm.
so would all off the games on steam.

And considering the RPI's power you are looking at a slim list of games compared to the whole steam library.

Re: Killer instinct?!?

It actually started out as an arcade game.
I tried it in mame 1.2 and it was slow motion.
most image games I think will be that way but it may work on Final Burn alpha.
Street fighter 3 supposedly does.

I ordered one of these last yr for my RPI based music player.
It came with a cable plus jack to go into the monitor.
I then just went through my parts bin & found a 12v wall wort & spliced everything together.

Re: Stretch image to fit screen in MAME?

This post on the Arcade Controls forum has a link for a version of mame4all that scales games to full screen.

It works ok far as I can tell but breaks the scanlines.

Just my findings. I've had to play with overscan settings but otherwise I think the monitor does a good job of upscaling. Even on advanced mame, i keep the rpi at 640x480 & then I scale the games themselves up to 640x480 in game and apply scanlines and they still run very smooth. well the ones that ...
