Re: PS3 controller not installing

Maybe check if your bluetooth service is running. I have a Pi2 and am finding that I can install bluetooth and pair the PS3 controller over bluetooth and it works fine, but as soon as I install RetroPie it kills the bluetooth service. I've tried just doing a really basic install with just installing...

Re: RetroPie/RetroArch Resoluton

This is from a post by Cyberg in another thread:

Another change I found useful was to force a specific HDMI-mode with these options in /boot/config.txt:

hdmi_group=1
hdmi_mode=1

This is to force VGA-mode.

Re: RetroArch Emulator Frontend

I have just rebuilt my pi due to overclocking killing my memory card. I can't get ASL audio to run. Everything works fine with ALSA but when I change to ASL in the config it says it can't find it. Guessing something has been killed in the Audio on the latest wheezy build.

Re: Emulation Station Problem

I used the RetroPie-Setup program to install EmulationStation, but whenever i enter a game (Super Mario All Stars in my case) i cannot do anything, apart from close the rom. Is there a default keyboard mapping for the SNES, and if not, how can I control the games? Thanks for any help. Try a differe...

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

Can anyone tell me if the save function is supported in imame4all? I get an error saying state not saved. Another interesting thing I have found is that some roms won't load unless there is another version of the game rom in the rom folder. For example tmntj.zip won't load for me, but if I also have...

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

You will get errors loading some mame roms. As RetroPie uses imame4all, not all roms are compatible or working. You will need to download roms that are confirmed working with imame4all. To find out which, have a look here... http://code.google.com/p/imame4all/wiki/GameList I'm still finding that a ...

Re: RetroArch Emulator Frontend

I have the same problem with super mario all stars using a ps3 controller through bluetooth.

I think it's more related to the game than the specific controller as other games like mario kart and donkey kong work fine.

Re: PS3 Controller and the PI

After a bit of playing around i think I've got a PS3 controller working. I used this tutorial [url]http://booting-rpi.blogspot.ro/2012/08/dualshock-3-and-raspberry-pi.html[/url] but about half way through after you do 'make' you need to then do 'sudo make install' I also found that I had to do a reb...
