Hi Dougie,

No the IP address hasn't changed , both are fixed.
Anyways, it was a glitch, restarted my Win10 box, now it works. shrugs

I've setup Moonlight Embedded on Retropie/Emulationstation using different guides and i am very happy with the results. My X360 controllers are recognized and i can navigate every menu. When launching Moonlight Embedded (stream PC/Steam) i can still navigate menus and play games without any problem. Great!

The next step was to look for a rhythm game like Guitar Hero, and was found in the form of Phase Shift ( Installed and worked like a charm. X360 guitar controller worked out of the box by connecting the USB wireless receiver to my PC (which i also use to my RPI3). Added the game to Steam so it can be launched by EmulationStation/Moonlight.

Now, when my X360 guitar controller is connected to my RPI3 using the wireless receiver, i can navigate all the menus in EmulationStation, all the menus in Moonlight/Steam, but when i launch Phase Shift the game freezes when i touch a button. Normal X360 controllers work fine in the game.

I know this might be a Phase Shift problem, but in the forums over there they couldnt really help me because they dont use this setup, so thats why i try it here. Also, Phase Shift looks like a great game to play from your couch using Moonlight, so it might interest others to help!

Hello there, not sure if this has come up before but I was wondering if its possible to stream in 4x3? I have a 4k monitor on my computer and I am streaming to my pi on a crt tv. I set the resolution to 320x240(I'm streaming n64/ps2 etc) which works fine but there is a black bar on the top and bottom. I can actually see a bit of the console text so clearly the image just isn't filling the screen.

Hey guys just wanted to share my script for starting moonlight. Been using this quite a bit.
This script can wol your pc and checks with netcat if steam is ready. Then it will connect. No more running up and down ;)

host='*.*.*.*' #Gamestream host you paired with
wol='1' #Set to 0 if you don't need wake on lan (install package wakeonlan)
mac='94:DE:80:66:XX:XX' #mac address of Gamestream host
port='27036' #Port to check if SteamStreaming is live
res='-1080' #Moonlight resolution
fps='-fps 60' #Moonlight frames per second
map='-mapping /home/pi/Moonlight/' #Path of moonlight mapping file
if [ $wol -eq '1' ]
wakeonlan $mac

function fail {
echo $1 >&2
exit 1

function streamit {
local n=1
local max=45
local delay=2
while true; do
nc -v -z -w1 $host $port 2>/dev/null && break || {
if [[ $n -lt $max ]]; then
sleep $delay;
elif [[ $n -eq 10 ]]; then
echo "Waited 10 seconds"
elif [[ $n -eq 20 ]]; then
echo "Waited 20 seconds"
elif [[ $n -eq 30 ]]; then
echo "Waited 30 seconds"
elif [[ $n -eq 40 ]]; then
echo "Waited 40 seconds"
elif [[ $n -eq 50 ]]; then
echo "Waited 50 seconds"
fail "Failed to stream from GameStream, is your Geforce Experience running?"
echo "GameStream Ready, starting Moonlight"
moonlight stream $host $res $fps $map

#Gamestream start

Does the wireless Xbox one controller adapter dongle work with moonlight for the rpi? ... Q4JhDRHIUQ Also, does this allow me to play 2 player if I got another controller (Games like gang beasts and niddhog)?
