    Hi there,

    Today i bought a model B Rasp Pi with the idea of running Retropie on it. Please excuse my ignorance as its all new to me but seem to be having a problem.

    So, ive followed the tutorials on extracting the retropie image to an SD card etc etc and all seems well until i have to ‘f4’ back to the terminal to setup my controller. When i do this, all i see is a black screen. No terminal what so ever. Im presuming in my excitement ive missed something but any help would be greatly appreciated! Do i need to have one of the OS installed on the card also?

    Kindest Regards,

    Matt

    If you switch the tty (ctrl + alt + f2) and then switch back to the first one (ctrl + alt + f1) the terminal will be there. Seems like something goes wrong with closing emulationstation.

    Hi there,

    Sorry Mutex, do i do this after ive f4’d out of it? ive tried that and it still fails. I went into emulationstation rather than f4ing before starting it and my 9 month old boy decided to crawl over the keyboard and somehow im in the terminal for the moment. How i got there, i do not know!?!

    Actually, it has nothing to do with EmulationStation, but with the splash screen during boot. This is a bug and can be overcome as stated above. Also, this will be fixed in the next release.
