Help!! Missing valid rp_module_id and rp_module_desc

Thu Jul 06, 2017 11:19 pm


I am not 100% sure how this happened but I might have been trying to edit the hotkey.sh script last night didn't save anything in it, and now when I try and launch the setup scripts, it just fails with:

Module /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/supplementary/hotkey.sh is missing valid rp_module_id
Module /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/supplementary/hotkey.sh is missing valid rp_module_desc

How can I fix this? I'm running latest RetroPie.

I had the same error after an update, my fix was quite simple and seems to work so far..

rename RetroPie-Setup to ZZZ____RetroPie-Setup (or whatever)
git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup.git

let it do its thing, then CD into retropie_setup folder and then sudo ./retropie_setup.sh

All games were there, could be just me but first startup seemed to take a teeny bit longer than usual, and error went away!!
