Yes, but they are generally .cue/.bin (in his case load the 'cue').

After more testing, I've found mednafen to support yet another system it didn't even know it supported (or at least isn't listed): the SG-1000!
This 8-bit 3rd generation system is an oddity, but is fully supported by mednafen with 0 lag, so it was worth mentioning.
On another note, one of the neatest things you can do with a pi is MUDs, or Multi-User Dungeons. These old-school graphicless rpgs are quite fun and can be used on the pi by installing telnet:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install telnet
You can find large lists of MUDs online (sorry, no link). You can even play them via ssh!
You also should add a few more emulators, since the perform better than the RetroArch cores, including pisnes and fceux...

mame4allpi performs much better than the retroarch core, and pisnes has somewhat better music reproduction (though that's probably debatable b/c they can both be really bad at times) than the retroarch core, but the fceux core is identical to fceux as far as I can tell and I haven't seen any flaws with either one.

edit: I see the fceux link you provided goes to an FCEUltra build. I was referring to this well regarded version by Audrey: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uu751ibdqmvq0co/fceux.zip

Play the first part of Final Fantasy 3 and you won't think that anymore. ;)
Hint: that unpleasant buzzing sound you hear actually sounds like the wind on other emulators

I want to confirm that I ran Airline tycoon deluxe on Raspberry Pi. You need to buy Linux version of this
games from Desura if you want to play it. In my view, Installation of the game is a very easy process.

http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 3&p=232095

You have to change a resolution to play it, and I'm happy to inform you that a sound in this game works.

I can't understand why this game is not so popular among Raspberry Pi users like Quake 3, Minecraft, and so on.

I haven't personally used the fceux off of dropbox, so thanks for posting that here :). A copy comes with RetroPie and works better over the RetroArch FCEUmm, if I remember correctly.
On a side note, how does one configure gamepads with pisnes/snes9x? I have buttons that exit the emulator and save/load states that ruin gameplay... :?

I see that PCs (not only modern ones, but old ones too) have some kind of joystick support. Why is this? Were joysticks some kind of revolutionary device some time ago for gamers? :?:

Man that comment makes me feel OLD! Its a historical label, Arcade Games and early Consoles used Joysticks and/or rotary dials for input, the 'Joypad' only became a general standard after the release of the Nintendo Famicom/NES in 1983/1985, it was based on the control scheme of their 'Game and Watch' series.

Hi, TheGreatNi again.

After looking for a good alternative to the game tint on pi, I came across vitetris. This fun, text based tetris clone successfully compiled on pi for me. If somebody asks, I'll upload my compiled binary, but otherwise, you can compile it yourself by running the following commands:

Code: Select all

wget http://goo.gl/ZdPTPT vitetris-0.57.tar.gz

tar xzvf vitetris-0.57.tar.gz
cd into the right folder, and...

Code: Select all

./configure && make
Now just run "./tetris" in that folder, and you'll be running it!
If needed, I'll revise my instructions/upload my copy if it doesn't work for you ;)

A bit slow on the Pi, but you can direct Midori to http://www.google.com/pacman - click "Insert Coin". :)

It uses JavaScript. There is a version of Google Pacman somewhere which works offline too.

I think I might have this on my tablet (I installed C4Droid, and installed the examples, which included a text-based tetris that uses NCurses (best programming lib ever!), and also the DOSBOX source). Could you please give me a link that has a fully-compiled version for the Pi?
If you need somewhere to store the files, check out mega.co.nz - you get 50GB of storage space for free!

Can someone please compile this program (viterris)?
You need ncurses (sudo apt-get install ncurses)
And remember the licence.
I found this program in my "C4Droid demos" folder (I still highly recommend c4droid full).
Thanks in advance.
And post up a link! If you don't have anywhere to put it online, use Google Drive or MEGA (Google Drive: 15GB free storage (unlimited bandwidth), MEGA: 50GB of free storage (10GB bandwidth).

I have compiled binaries, but if you make them yourself, you can just type "tetris" to run it. I'll upload them later today.

EDIT: I uploaded my copy to dropbox. Link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/931 ... .57.tar.gz

EDIT EDIT: I know you all are fully aware of Minecraft Pi Edition, so I won't talk too much about it. Two patches were released for it (awhile ago) that allowed you to play full-screen on HDMI monitors, and a sorta-working survival mode (it is said to work best when you load a world from the actual pocket edition). People have reported problems applying and using the patched versions. I have uploaded mc-pi edition, fullscreen, and survival executables, along with shell scripts to run both patched versions. To get 'em, go:

Code: Select all

cd /home/pi
wget -O mcpi+patches.tar.gz http://goo.gl/LV4FFv
tar xzvf ./mcpi+patches.tar.gz
cd mcpi
After following these steps, use

Code: Select all

sh ./survival.sh
To play the the survival hack and

Code: Select all

sh ./full.sh
to play the full-screen hack (only when using your pi when connected to an HDMI monitor).
Make sure to test this out! I'd recommend adding this to the list under the first mcpi entry. None of the contents are my creations, I simply pulled together several resources and published them for ease of use...

Thanks for the binaries.
The problem with the survival patch is that because it is a "Pocket Edition" based patch, whenever it detects the mouse is over an item, you start to drop it, which get's annoying. Also, the maps created are creative, and whenever you leave the map, you loose all of your items, so put them in a chest.
But, aside from those "problems", it's a great patch. I've not tried the fullscreen one.

Yup, lol. 5 specific Titles (Dai Makai Mura (Ghouls N Ghosts) and 1941 Counter Attack are the only ones worth playing) and 2 PCEngine/SGX hybrids!

' Have you tried emulating PC-FX? I tried downloading an iso, and the download just failed.'
No its probably the ONLY System I don't have an Emulator for. There isn't a Title for the PC-FX that I really consider worth Emulating, it may be in the Repo version of Mednafen they don't work as CD compatibility is not present (although the Core is).
Not sure if this will help, but you could extract the .ISO?

Usually open up a terminal, and type that games name in, then hit enter. Or it may appear under the "Games" menu in the "Start" menu-thingy.
