I fixed it :D Mostly thanks for this post here . Which says. The first time you run the game, you should go into service mode, select 4. Options/Parameters with key F1, reset the High Score Table to have the high score table properly initialized. After doing that, a qbert.nv file was created in the ...

Re: [11/19/13] UltraSlim - Retro Gaming + Q3A + Desktop + XB

Scratch, and other thing's were removed to get the "slim" setup. You can always reinstall the stuff you need. I have a base minimal image I build up from that I created myself (from the latest raspbian). Then I just reinstall the stuff I need. Personally I have zero experience with scratch. I am pre...

Re: RetroArch Emulator Frontend

with the latest dev branch, you can get past the menu in Mario 64 (using keyboard). So some of the keys that were not working before are working.

Re: RetroPie path

It will cause you some headackes. config files will be wrong and need to be edited. Might be a good idea just to restart.

Re: What's up with audio in advmenu (advancemenu)?

I was researching that very thing. But unfortionatly I would just be guessing for the correct format to use for joystick. I even tried looking at the advmame config, but it's called "input_map". Not sure if the commands from advmame can be applied to advmenu. Would require some testing.

Yes, I got it is working fine, just couldnt switch emulator's via joystick js0. Had to use the keyboard via "F6". I really don't wanna throw all my rom's in "mixed" mode either, as it would be no fun to navigate.
