    Re: 13) Change Memory-split to 384.
    If you have a model A RPi or an early model B with only 256 meg of memory then I’d advise changing this to 128. (The default is 258 and can lead to games stuttering due to lack of memory if you have one of these systems)

    FJGonzalez – there are a couple of methods. If you got to Step 11, then whilst using sudo raspi-config, go to advanced options. It should be possible to select output here. Alternatively, it can be set through retropie-setup or set manually.

    Could be a memory split issue. From command line use sudo raspi-config and check options. 256 is the retropie default but I have to reduce to 128 as I have an early model b.

    Make sure mame.cfg points to the right location for roms

    >>>But Iam willing to bet up and left still have issues.

    Nope, it all works. Emulation Station recognises the controller and correctly configures buttons on first boot.
    Configuring controller through RetroArch also works fine.

    Re: cave story saves – the save game folder is probably write protected (this was the case in v2.1).
    I’ll check later on to be sure, but the folder is located in emulatorcores/nxengine-liberato/datafiles.
    When the saves work properly, they will appear here as Profile.dat.
    I made the folder writeable by logging into the pi as administrator through winSCP and changing the folder properties. Others here will probably use nice command lines. Hope this helps!

    I’ve just found that the Xin-Mo Xin-Mo Dual Arcade usb joystick controller works straight out of the box now in v2.X without the need to install separately – great work, thank you!

    I don’t think anyone is having much luck with N64 recently:

    All recent versions that I have tried that have worked have been very choppy and are generally unplayable.
    Some promising progress is being made however in Mupen64plus as detailed here:

    …so watch this space…

    see the bottom of this thread for details.

    Essentially mame.cfg needs to be edited so that it looks for roms in the right location.
    Similar thing for samples if you are using samples.

    Thank you all – updating mame.cfg as above solved all my issues (still using 0.37b11 romset)

    Justin – the supernintendopi page was previously great – I used it myself successfully for installing v1.9 and 1.10. The current release has a different folder structure however as described in the blog post here:

    retroarch.cfg for example is located in /opt/retropie/configs

    Hope this helps!

    Nemo93, sorry to jump in here but hopefully we can work out what’s happening here.

    My romset is 0.37b11 and worked absolutely fine in v1.10.1 with default setting (mame4all). Same roms haven’t worked in either v2 or v2.1 (SD image). The relevant section from es_systems.cfg is as follows:

    <fullname>MAME</fullname>
    <name>mame</name>
    <path>~/RetroPie/roms/mame</path>
    <extension>.zip .ZIP</extension>
    <command>/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 4 “/opt/retropie/emulators/mame4all-pi/mame %BASENAME%”</command>
    <!– alternatively: <command>/opt/retropie/emulators/RetroArch/installdir/bin/retroarch -L /opt/retropie/emulatorcores/imame4all-libretro/libretro.so –config /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg –appendconfig /opt/retropie/configs/mame/retroarch.cfg %ROM% </command> –>
    <platform>arcade</platform>
    <theme>mame</theme>

    …and seems to suggest that mame4all is being initiated so all a bit weird to me.

    Xbox wired controller works great.

    For the Xin-Mo Xin-Mo Dual Arcade I was pulling my hair out for a while wondering why up and left didn’t work but saw on the blog a workaround. Is this something that will be incorporated into v2 as standard?

    Am loving the look of the Retrolink Snes controllers – think they will be my next purchase!

    in reply to: RetroPie 2.0 help #10521

    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.

    My current setup is rather basic with a lazer-cut pi case connected to a wall mounted TV:

    Fortunately, I have a work in progress coffee table prototype which is currently in production:

    I hope to have some more photos of the latter soon! :D
