I normally edit configs and add roms via SSH with WinSCP. Because of the new folder structure I cannot edit any files or add files to the ‘opt’ folder as permission is denied. Anyone know how to give myself permission?kitchukParticipant06/30/2014 at 19:37Post count: 207
I also noticed the MasterSystem and Neo Geo system folders are missing in the roms folder.InsecureSpikeParticipant06/30/2014 at 21:31Post count: 571

You can enable the root access via WinSCP when you SSH into the RPi before and set the root password with the command
sudo passwd. Afterwards, you can use, e.g., WinSCP and log into the RPi with
rootas username and have according permissions.
This will already be done with the next release of the sd card image.petrockblogKeymaster06/30/2014 at 21:37Post count: 1827

FBAnow. Mastersystem is missing – this is a bug and you can add it manually with
mkdir -p /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/mastersystem
. This will be fixed with the next release.ademccParticipant06/30/2014 at 21:57Post count: 15
Great work folks, v2.0 is shaping up nicely!
The rom folder for atariStSteFalcon is also missing. Easy enough to add it in though.
Thank you for the advice to enable editing of the opt folder – I was unable to transfer my Cave Story save games without it.kitchukParticipant07/01/2014 at 14:01Post count: 207
I understnad that Neo Geo is now FBA. The new ES does actually have a theme for Neo Geo. I created a folder called ‘neogeo’ in the roms folder. I use FBA for CPS roms and Neo Geo for well…Neo Geo.
I also creaste two seperate PiFba folders (with two seperate configs) as I use one controller setup for FBA and one setup for Neo Geo controls.nemo93Participant07/05/2014 at 13:43Post count: 51
for the sake of clarity, let’s try to use a single thread regarding the “permissions” if you don’t mind?
I’ve proposed a workaround here: https://www.petrockblock.com/forums/topic/no-writing-permission-for-retroarch-cfg/#post-12219
hope this helps.

When trying to load a rom of TRON: Deadly Discs on intellivision, the following error shows up (all non-preinstalled roms have th esame error):
ERROR: Could not read EXEC image ‘exec.bin’
After a couple seconds it returns to the game selection screen under the intellivision menu.
The rom I got was from a sketchy site but should’ve been fine. It ended up as a .bin and I hope that’s what intellivision is supposed to be.
I am using a brand new raspberry pi B+ fresh out of the box after installing retropie.data123Participant01/21/2015 at 13:53Post count: 5
To get intellivision to work you need the files EXEC.BIN and GROM.BIN (find them on bittorrent)
then you need to make a folder at

I worked around the problem by switching my username to ‘root’ and then still using ‘rapsberry’ as my password. Was able to move and change things in the /opt/ directory.
