    I emailed the creator of jzintv, Joel Zbiciak, about the issue of jzintv crashing when trying to use a hackfile. He’s updated the source code, but I’m unable to get it to compile on my Pi. Can anyone else get it to compile? Here’s the link:

    Another issue with jzintv is that there’s no way to get back to EmulationStation without rebooting. F1 just gives you a blank screen. Anyone got a workaround?

    I have managed to get jzintv to compile, albeit on Raspbian but it should work in Retropie.

    Here’s what I did.

    1. Unzip the jzintv-svn folder and copy it to your pi.
    2. Change your working directory to jzintv-svn/src and edit Makefile.
    3. Change the line that reads

    OPT_FLAGS = -O6 -fomit-frame-pointer -fprefetch-loop-arrays -msse #-DBENCHMARK_STIC

    OPT_FLAGS = -O3 -fomit-frame-pointer -fprefetch-loop-arrays -march=armv6 -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=vfp
    4. Run the command make.

    Here are some links that I found useful.

    Instructions to compile jzintv and integrate it into existing Retropie install


    I made my earlier post when jzintv was compiling (which took about 30 minutes) but there is one more step to run jzintv, at least in Raspbian. I think, in Retropie, you should be able to get jzintv to run by editing the es_systems.cfg file

    You need to edit the .bashrc file which is in your home directory. At the bottom, add the following lines:

    export PATH=$HOME/jzintv-svn/bin:$PATH
    export JZINTV_ROM_PATH=$HOME/jzintv-svn/rom
