I went and tried that but after doing the sudo nano es_systems.cfg I go to the Nano terminal where I can't find a single shred of code.
So I can't change runcommand.sh
Apparently you weren't in the right place. Did you ls before trying to open it? If there was just a blank page, then that means that the file didn't exist in the directory that you were in, but that file has to be there for emulationStation to work.
Code: Select all
# Brings you to the home directory
# Should show all folders and files including the hidden ones.
# The "." in ".emulationstation" means that it is normally a hidden
# If you don't see ".emulationstation", then it is under another user's folder. So do cd /home and see what other users there are
# If you see ".emulationstation"
# You should see that a file es_systems.cfg already exists. If not, then I have no clue what is wrong
# If you see it, then:
sudo nano es_systems.cfg
# You should see a bunch of stuff here. If you saw it with ls but it is blank, then I have no clue what went wrong
Once you have it open, then try the modifications that they said.
Also aside from the RCA problem, I tried playing that game on HDMI using a wireless Xbox 360 controller.
In the rom list menu it works just fine but whenever I load a game, for example Zelda a Link to the Past on the SNES, the controls do not respond. Though I am still able to abort the game using F4.
In emulator controls are different than the main menu controls and have to be set separately. Exit emulationStation and do the following (copy-pasted from http://supernintendopi.wordpress.com/
Press F4 to exit EmulationStation and go back to terminal.
Code: Select all
./retroarch-joyconfig >> ~/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg
Next you are going to use your controller and follow the prompts. If your controller has less buttons than the config tries to setup (My SNES controllers lack the R2/L2, R3/L3, and Joysticks), then you need to select a dummy button (I used left trigger) for the buttons you don’t have. We will edit those out later. Once this is done, it will bring you back to the terminal.
One thing I would recommend personally is to make a copy of the original retroarch.cfg file as a backup/reference because there are a lot of useful features in there that you may want later. Also, you may want to look through the website I linked for other things like setting up an exit button on your controller.
