Re: Installing Retropie straight to RPi?

Thank you again. I was wondering if I was to do anything, whether I could get it straight on the Pi or whether I'd need to use a PC to load them onto a USB stick. All guides point to this. Are you referring to transfering Roms? If so there are lots of ways to do it. You can do it through SSH (acces...

Also, when typing emulationstation, i get this message; pi@raspberrypi:~ $ emulationstation X is running. Please shut down X in order to mitigate problems with losing keyboard input. For exampl...

Yes you can. You don't have to have another computer. Here are the steps First you should update sudo apt-get update Then make sure you have installed on your rpi some programs necessary for getting it running sudo apt-get install -y git dialog xmlstarlet Next clone into the git repository (i think ...

Re: Is there an enclosure that works with 2.8" TFT and B+

My suggestions come back to, either get the Adafruit 1892 case, which has a terrific front panel designed specifically for your display and buttons, and adapt some other case to fit the rest of the Pi, or get the Pibow PiTFT Plus, use it with its 3.5" layer, and your Pi and screen will definitely f...

I figured it out. If I turn off the shader in retroarch.cfg then for the most part all games run smoothly.

Wow! Thank you for that explanation CarlRJ! I was a bit confused on the line up of adafruit's screens. After looking into what you said I think that the Pibow PiTFT+ case will be the best option for me. Thanks for your time. :) Edit: after looking at the pictures of the Pibow PiTFT+ case they all se...

Re: How can I use the fceumm Libretro/Retroarch core in retr

That TFT display doesn't support dispmanx-driven EGL/GLES rendering contexts, so there's no way you will get a good performance with it. Lakka uses dispmanx/GLES so it won't work with it. I consider that TFT display a scam. As for emulationstation/retropie, I can't help you as I don't know about it...

I don't know about RetroPie, but in normal Raspbian you clone the git repository: git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/libretro/libretro-fceumm.git Then you cd into the directory where it has been cloned: cd libretro-fceumm And then you build the core with the Raspberry Pi 1 platform definitions ...

Re: etc/rc.local/ fails to start compatibility on boot!

/etc/rc.local runs traditionally at the end of each run level startup... and by default it does absolutely nothing.

etc/rc.local/ fails to start compatibility on boot!

One of the things that my rpi spits out when it boots says this

Code: Select all

[ FAIL ] failed to start /etc/rc.local Compatibility 
I haven't seen any performance issues but like I've said before, I don't like seeing errors. ;)
So does anyone know how to fix this problem or if it is a problem at all.
