Good car audio projects?

I'm wondering what great things you guys have done with your Pi's for a good car audio solution? I have a relatively newish car but the standard in-car entertainment isn't anything flash, it supports MP3s but only via CD, it had bluetooth, but only for calls... useless! I purchased an old 5th Gen iP...

script to alternate between 2 programs?

warning: this is a noob post. I need to create a script that will alternate between 2 programs when accessed, therefore it needs to check which program is running, kill it and then launch the other. maybe something like this: - if Program1 is running - kill it - launch Program2 - or if Program2 is r...

Re: RetroPie Project SD-Card Image

You need to extract the PSX roms so that you are left with .bin files.

some of them are split so you can put them in a folder.

i couldn't get ES to recognise .bin files so you need to go into emulationstation config and add .bin to the extension list under Playstation

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

i've noticed speed is not 100% on some PSCX games, it's not choppy, just a little slow so it's not the end of the world but would be great if i could get it almost full speed. is it possible?

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

I managed to fix the issue with .bin roms/iso

open ES config

./emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

under each each emulator is an EXTENSIONS= line

just add .bin to the correct emulator

So far i've noticed it missing on sega megadrive and PSX.

playing resident evil now, so happy :)

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

If you don't mind loosing the original aspect ratio, try setting video_aspect_ratio=1.78 (for 16:9 stretch) in retroarch.cfg. BTW, I wonder why the default is unset/1:1 instead of 1.33 corresponding to 4:3. The normal game saving should work out of the box. For quicksaves, I think it's possible to ...

Re: Emulator Box from scratch

Thanks welshy,

I've come across this: https://github.com/petrockblog/RetroPie-Setup
it includes app cores, emulators and also a graphical front end (EmulationStation)
i figure it would be easier to go with this, but would it be better?
