Getting retropie on Noob for OS selection

Fri Oct 20, 2017 8:08 am

Hi all

I want to get retropie on Noob so I can have a selection between retropie, OSMC , Recalbox when starting up my PI.

I have found this guide
https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Convert-Re ... OBS-Image/

And just wanted to ask is it easy for an intermediate beginner to setup? And does any one know of a video guide available as for some reason I can't find one.

Thanks

Thanks @fruitiftheloom

Perfect looks a more simple solution then the other way 😀😀😀😀

One last question in the comment below it's say DD, Im prob being stupid but what's that stand for?

NOOBS/PINN is not suitable for everyone. If you prefer to DD your image files directly to the SD card, then carry on.
