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

So, after a lot try and retry, I got the Pi to load Emulation Station. However, the interface was unresponsive, and after trying a few random keystrokes, it inexplicably started up Super Mario Bros, which worked pretty well, actually. But when I tried to exit it, it glitched out the emulation statio...

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

Hmm, after upgrading and updating and removing everything and running the script again, I still get the same error.

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

Dom updated the gpu driver in the firmware: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=19334&p=188886 Thanks for that link! To make your RetroPie installation work all you need to do is to reboot your Raspberry, e.g., via sudo reboot I tried this (as well as updating the pi via ...

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

Hello, I just tried using your RetroPie script, and I can't seem to get it to start. I've tried installing it three times (tried once, then erased the files as outlined in this thread and tried again, then reflashed the SD card and tried again). All three times I received the same error: * failed to...

Quick question RE: keyboard/mouse.

Sorry if this is redundant, but I didn't see a specific answer to this question after a quick search. My Pi is supposed to come in today (tracker says "Out for delivery"), and I just realized that I don't have any wired USB keyboards laying around. I do have a Lenovo wireless HTPC keyboard...

Re: Preview: Laser Cut Mini Arcade Cabinet (PICS!)

Very cool. I think I actually read some of your progress with MAME and other emulators (and maybe watched a youtube video?) as I was gathering ideas for my mini arcade build. I haven't figured out what to do for the body of mine, yet, but I'm leaning towards something more minimal and less tradition...

Miniature arcade cabinet build

While this project's official start is a ways off (graduate student funding isn't the greatest...), I think I've got enough figured out and enough questions answered to lay out this project for all to bear. Now that I finally ordered my Raspberry Pi after wanting one for so long, I decided that my f...

Re: LCD panel and battery pack questions.

Thanks for the suggestion. I think I'm leaning towards the 8.9" or 10" size of display simply because those seem to be the most accessible with a 1024x600 resolution. I've found some nice kits on eBay that include the controller board (with HDMI), an inverter board, and cables. So I think ...

LCD panel and battery pack questions.

I wasn't really sure where to put this, so I figured that "general" might be applicable. It does have to do with gaming, but I wasn't really sure that the questions herein would be best suited for that section. I just ordered a Raspberry Pi, and one of my ideas for a build was to build a m...
