I have the exact same question
I have built dedicated SNES & PS1 projects and would like to come straight from splash into the games list. I have a feeling this is only doable through a custom compiling of retropie, which is a bit outside of my remit. Perhaps we’ll see it in a future build if we ask politely ;)bobchibaParticipant10/03/2015 at 03:46Post count: 18
actually im not sure my previous cfg file modification did anything. I was originally using what i thought was port one on the usb adapter ps2 input and i switched to the other port and I think this is what got me results. I then have to presume I have the same issue as you with only one pad working. I don’t actually have a second to test them both at the same time.bobchibaParticipant10/01/2015 at 00:32Post count: 18
That was my aim, to have something with very little hints to the fact it is a ‘Pi’ build.
I have disabled all ES menu options apart from SNES (I actually wonder if I could disable menu items all together and boot straight into game list?)
My fave’ things about this build is the standard DC socket on the back (no more rubbish micro usb connectors) so you can use a big amperage ‘wall wart’ plug and the fact it has a playable version of Star FOX 2 on it! In order to keep it looking stock I had to have a cart inserted and thought a custom label would be cool too. See JPG attached.bobchibaParticipant09/30/2015 at 17:41Post count: 18
I actually found a straight forward way around it all. I sourced my roms in PSP>PSX format (.PBP). All I have to do is unzip the file and change the name from EBOOT to the game title :)
Another thing – I have used your video manager which worked great for my SNES project (thank you) it does seem a little bit dark on my PSX project. Have you found this, or is it just my room/TV. Apart from that its working great.
Are there any other tweaks for PSX emulation only that are worth considering? So far I have:
Overclocked to Pi2 setting
used your video manager to run overlays @ 1080p
set video_threaded = true
256 memory split

To be honest, i’ve been doing it in my spare time over the the past few months and haven’t really kept a tally of everything. I would struggle a bit to make a guide now.
The tricky part was getting the pad to work. Eventually I realised non-genuine snes pads (even if they’re not USB) dont all work. Had to use proper original ones. Theres a member on here called FLOOB who has some great youtube tutorials that got me through a lot of the tweaks.bobchibaParticipant09/29/2015 at 20:24Post count: 18
OK I got it working. Reboot got it working in ES, then I found someone with the same issue and the solution was to manually edit the TwinUSBJoystic.cfg file with the same button assignment as a PS3 controller (minus the bottons a ps1 pad doesn’t have)bobchibaParticipant09/29/2015 at 17:22Post count: 18
I have the exact same usb adapter, trying to get an original PS1 pad to work. The adpater is powered (tiny red led so seems like its operating ok) but cannot get the pad to register any input.
I have tried the automated pad register within the new retropie 3.0 menu and nothing hits. I can see that the Pi acknowledges that a ‘twin usb joystick’ is connected however??bobchibaParticipant09/07/2015 at 19:26Post count: 18bobchibaParticipant09/07/2015 at 00:01Post count: 18bobchibaParticipant09/06/2015 at 22:16Post count: 18
I’d really like to implement the original settings and overlays etc from this post, but I’m a little bit lost on the setup process. I only want to implement these settings for SNES emulation, I dont use anything else.
Would anyone be so kind as to give me ‘pizza box’ instructions on how to get these video settings in place. I can SSH and FTP into my Pi and I know how to edit a file via ‘sudo nano’ but thats about the limit of my know-how.
Any help on this would be much appreciated.bobchibaParticipant03/17/2015 at 22:28Post count: 18
Thanks for the reply. So, if I understand correctly, I should enable SnesDev in the core retropie menu and then wire up the ribbon cable to the gpio pins according to the link you posted at github? Do I have to run any other commands once everything is wired up?
