I transfer my files with an sftp program like flashfxp. winscp will work too i think.
I need full write support so i login with root using the pi’s IP address along with login/password.
If you want root, you’ll have to enable it and edit sshd_config to allow root.
I don’t use samba or network shares so I’m not sure about that.darksaviorParticipant03/17/2016 at 09:21Post count: 27darksaviorParticipant03/17/2016 at 09:04Post count: 27
nonono not that Aeon skin you’ve been including in past builds. I hate it too:)
Aeon Nox is quite different

[quote=117539]I just wanted to sign in and say a tremendous thank you to Smithers for this build. This is exactly what I had always been looking for to setup my media room, and you have made my boyhood dreams come true.
One thing I wanted to ask is whether anyone could assist me with settings adjustments that would allow me to control kodi with either my x-arcade tankstick or retro snes gamepad?
I’m not sure you can. I use Yatse for android. It’s a remote control app. Works fine on both kodi. Rasplex as well by editing event server to port 9778 in Yatse.darksaviorParticipant02/24/2016 at 09:14Post count: 27
Donkey kong “runs” but it’s not fine. Sound effects are missing from every version of fba and mame except for mame 2010. But it freezes a few seconds in..
I only tried the first set “dkong.zip”, so I’m not sure if any alternative sets have sound effects.
Like shinobi..ugh. That one took me a while..only Set 2 and 2010 plays with the proper sound effects. 2003 works but some music channels cut out.darksaviorParticipant02/17/2016 at 07:55Post count: 27
And tonight marked my defeat in getting kodi with plexbmc working properly in 3.5. It’s really unstable so it’s quite useless to me. I’m really looking forward to a rasplex dualsetup now.
The rasplex/retropie link on the first page is gone..can you upload whatever you have ready? Thanks
Edit: nevermind, found one from your youtube channel. Thanks:)darksaviorParticipant02/17/2016 at 04:05Post count: 27
Update on my problem..
I connected the pi2 to a spare monitor with a dvi adapter.
Kodi exits back to ES just fine without issues.
Still no idea why it doesn’t like my TV..
EDIT: Problem solved. Disabled that Pulse-Eight HDMI CEC addon. What a simple solution..meh
EDIT2: …and it started acting up after testing it for a bit with plexbmc. Wouldn’t play anything after 3-4 videos so I quit and the black screen is back. Not sure if it’s kodi or plexbmc but one thing’s for sure..I’m done using it. It’s too unstable for my needs.darksaviorParticipant02/13/2016 at 01:21Post count: 27darksaviorParticipant02/12/2016 at 09:26Post count: 27
Yes, I started with a fresh 3.5 image. No upgrades. Pi2.
I did a clean install right now just to make sure. Still does it. This time I left it. After a few minutes of having a black screen, it boots back into kodi.
Edit..well it’s not THAT fresh..I do have the snesdev script installed and that adds 30sec to shutdown in jessie, but I believe quitting kodi shouldn’t boot me back to kodi..
About the cec utils..no idea..darksaviorParticipant02/12/2016 at 08:36Post count: 27darksaviorParticipant01/26/2016 at 12:52Post count: 27
I can add a few more problems. The boot time is a bit longer and the shutdown time is WAY longer if you have alot of roms. Almost 3 minutes. I have over 3000 roms on usb. The shutdown was much faster when I didn’t have any roms. Never had that issue on wheezy. I’ve been meaning to delete a bunch I don’t play..guess now’s a good time..
Also, sometimes the snesdev script takes upto 30seconds to shutdown.darksaviorParticipant01/13/2016 at 01:57Post count: 27
Well the way I go about it is, if a game runs really slow on fba(usually a non-cps/neogeo game), I then check if mame4all supports it. Usually it doesn’t or has some odd emulation problem so I then try 2003. Sometimes I get slowdowns in that as well but not as BAD as fba so I can tinker with resolution/render settings to get it to run..barely.darksaviorParticipant01/10/2016 at 11:40Post count: 27
Solved my own problem. It doesn’t like my roms because they are all in caps..
In trying this emulator…it’s just not for me. It runs some games better but the resolutions are clearly meant for arcade monitors. Sound also cuts off. I’ll stick to lr-mame. Unless there’s non-lr versions? I’ve noticed lately lr versions of emulators are getting a bit slower.darksaviorParticipant01/08/2016 at 04:44Post count: 27
unfortunately, I could not find any settings that helped speed in any way.I tried standalone last night and was shocked that it’s a bit faster with no scratchy audio and no long pauses. I prefer lr versions as well but in this case, for the time being, I suggest sticking with the standalone version. The slowdowns have existed for a while and not sure if they’ll ever be fixed. I haven’t seen any comments from devs in here on the issue…darksaviorParticipant10/06/2015 at 08:00Post count: 27
ok, I switched back to default theme in rasplex and managed to find the wifi config there. yay. I switched back to aeon theme np.
Can the retropie shortcut from aeon be installed through the default theme? That would simplify things so I won’t need to go back and forth just to tweak extra settings that aren’t in aeon.darksaviorParticipant10/03/2015 at 05:31Post count: 27darksaviorParticipant09/30/2015 at 10:00Post count: 27
I’m new to rasplex so maybe i’m not finding it…but how do you configure wifi on this? The rasplex faq I found refers to settings that don’t exist on this build. I’ve gone through everywhere in the Settings section. Nothing about configuring network/wifi..darksaviorParticipant09/13/2015 at 11:11Post count: 27
FBA-next supports more roms from a newer mame romset. So I suppose that’s better. I haven’t tried the new roms it supports.SF3 still has scratchy audio here and there. No change.
Mk1 runs better on Mame4all but Mk2 had less scratchy audio on 2003.
Oh, and Mame4all does not support SF3…darksaviorParticipant09/08/2015 at 03:07Post count: 27
Tried them all. 2010 seems unusable for the ~10 games I tried. Too slow. These are games that are also too slow/aren’t in FBA.
2003 gave me better results with those same games. Most we’re fully playable. I’ll have to get compatible romsets for those that didn’t load. Some needed to be dropped to 640×480 for speed. Overall not bad. It’ll replace advmame for me. I do wish Ninja Warriors was playable at 1080P :(
On a Pi2.
Some of the games I tried:
1080P: Some with minor slowdowns here and there.
Captain America and the Avengers
480p: Some with minor slowdowns here and there.
Bucky O Hare
Ninja Warriors (not stretched)darksaviorParticipant09/07/2015 at 12:50Post count: 27
Well from my experience I noticed power drops if adapters/couplers are used. It’s the thickness of the cable as well. The one you bought is 24/28AWG. Maybe try thicker cables (i think usb standard cables can go as thick as 20AWG) or try soldering what you have to eliminate the coupler. No guarantees..
In my snes/sfc enclosure setup I had to use thick cables cut from a pc psu because the normal microusb wires would give me that colored square.darksaviorParticipant08/27/2015 at 23:37Post count: 27
