Hey everyone – Thank you in advance for the help. Let me give you a little info on my setup. I have purchased an custom-built system that was fit into a ColecoVision Flashback (which in theory is pretty damn sweet!) and here’s what it looks like: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/245910-colecovision-flashback-upgrade-service/
From what I can tell, I have a Rasberry Pi 2 with (I’m assuming) is the latest version of Retropie and Emulation Station on it.
It has been configured mostly to play ColecoVision and Intellivision games, and I have no problems at all with those. I also have been able to get PC Engine, MAME, and Vectrex games to play.
Here’s my issues:
1. When I try to add roms for Atari 2600 I get the following error:
stella: src/emucore/OSystem.cxx:1128: virtual bool OSystem::queryVideoHardware() ‘myDesktopwidth >=320 && myDesktopHeight >= 240’ failed. /opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh: line 203: 2400 Aborted SDL1_VIDEODRIVER=displaymax stella /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/atari2600/asteroids.bin
If I try to run Stella from the command line of the Pi, it works just fine.
2. I cannot get Atari 5200 roms to work. They show up in emulation station, but when I click a rom, it blanks out, and nothing happens and comes back to ES. The last message I get is “Powering on HDMI with preferred settings.”
3. I cannot get other systems, like SNES and NES to even recognize that I’ve added roms into their respective folders. I’ve checked the es_systems.cfg file to see what directories and file types they are looking for, and from what I can tell, it’s correct, but nothing happens.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I’m a noob to the Pi and RetroPie, but I at least have a good enough tech savvy understanding of how a lot of this works, and I’ve scoured the internet as much as I could trying different things before I posted my questions.
I am also attaching my config files if that is useful.
Thanks in advance for your help!tpr70Participant12/28/2015 at 02:46Post count: 27
Been messing around with configs and other settings and I’m still getting the same error with Stella and I can’t get any roms from systems like NES or SNES to show up in Emulation Station.
Looks like I’m running RetroPie 3.18.7-v7
Any help would be greatly appreciated!InsecureSpikeParticipant12/28/2015 at 09:28Post count: 571tpr70Participant12/28/2015 at 14:54Post count: 27FloobMember12/28/2015 at 16:25Post count: 1629
The Wiki shows you the correct file extensions for NES and SNES, do your files match these?hobbswonParticipant01/04/2016 at 06:18Post count: 86
How did you get Colecovision roms to run if you don’t mind me asking?tpr70Participant01/04/2016 at 06:20Post count: 27
Using the CoolCV emulator. Here’s the link: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/240800-coolcv-emulator-for-mac-os-x-linux-windows-and-raspberry/
I think I now have most of the issues sorted out just by trial and error. I’m super impressed with MAME on the Pi although I get a strange error when running Bagman as it tells me the “Sound Emulator cannot be started” and then it crashes. I’m using AdvanceMAME. Any ideas?hobbswonParticipant01/04/2016 at 06:57Post count: 86
What version of CoolCV are you using? because in that forum a few posters have mentioned in the 0.6.2v they cannot map the controllers and that the (# + *) combination doesn’t exit anymore. I’m desperate for a Colecovision solution on Rpi and I’ve never compiled a source in the linux environment before.tpr70Participant01/04/2016 at 07:00Post count: 27
To be honest, I’m not sure because someone else set this up for me, but I’d have to imagine it’s whatever the latest version is. The system I have is made for the CV controller, but I did unplug the USB to CV controller adapter and put in a normal USB NES controller and I was able to play CV games just fine. The Start button seemed to be mapped to the “1” key on the keypad so I could at least start all the games that required a number push from the keypad to get them going.
