    Did you ever discover a solution? Right now my left/right is inverted in pifba.

    After scraping select the quit emulation station option instead of shutdown or restart. It should save after that point.

    [quote=82202]Could you post a shot of the error message? (if you haven’t already started fresh)

    I tried one more thing since I was going to start from scratch anyways. Tried make file executable sudo chmod a+x /etc/init.d/asplashscreen activate sudo insserv /etc/init.d/asplashscreen as listed on another tutorial.

    The video still doesn’t work, but now I have two messages. The original and a second.

    [quote=82190]Try running just the omxplayer -o hdmi –layer 10000 /home/pi/splash_screen_video.mp4 command from either the console/terminal or through SSH.
    This will hopefully give a more specific error message. I think it is likely that there is a small difference between the location you are pointing to in the script and the actual filename and location. (maybe an extra “.” or space that you missed)

    Yeah, this is weird.

    Typing it in the command line it plays fine. Still won’t play on start up.

    Going to start with a fresh sd card and try again from scratch.

    Yeah, I went back and caught that, but am running into a new issue.

    Now it says “asplashscreen: no such file or directory”

    Here is my current asplashscreen text:

    #! /bin/sh
    ### BEGIN INIT INFO
    # Provides: asplashscreen
    # Required-Start:
    # Required-Stop:
    # Default-Start: S
    # Default-Stop:
    # Short-Description: Show custom splashscreen
    # Description: Show custom splashscreen
    ### END INIT INFO

    do_start () {

    omxplayer -o hdmi –layer 10000 /home/pi/splash_screen_video.mp4 &
    exit 0
    }

    case “$1″ in
    start|””)
    do_start
    ;;
    restart|reload|force-reload)
    echo “Error: argument ‘$1’ not supported” >&2
    exit 3
    ;;
    stop)
    # No-op
    ;;
    status)
    exit 0
    ;;
    *)
    echo “Usage: asplashscreen [start|stop]” >&2
    exit 3
    ;;
    esac

    :

    And my video file is splash_screen_video.mp4 located in /home/pi/

    Followed these precisely (3 times now) and am still getting no video. No splash screen at all.

    On load, reading the lines running there is a line where it reads:
    /etc/init.d/asplashscreen 14: /etc/init.d/asplashscreen omx: not found

    However omx is definitely installed, trying apt get again just says I have the latest version.

    Any suggestions?

    Beautiful. Thank you.

    Well I screwed something else up, and instead of wasting an hour or two trying to figure out what I just started over from scratch. Reformatted the microSD and carried on.

    And what do you know? Game Gear roms worked right from the start. And GBA games worked when I put the same gba_bios file, in the same location as I started with…

    So… /shrug

    But it is working now so I guess I will mark this one resolved.

    [quote=81968]Odd that ES doesnt see the other systems. Do the roms show happily within EmulationStation itself – so to check if the rom extension is good? Perhaps it was a temporary network glitch and it would work if you tried again?

    It saw the other systems, but would fail to pull anything for each game. I tried to scrape for each system individually and it would sit on each game for 30ish seconds, then go to the next without finding anything.

    The roms all appeared fine under each system and with the exception of the GBA and Game Gear, they were playing fine.

    Perhaps it was something network related. Will try again tonight. If no luck, I will simply move on to sselph and hope that works.

    Thanks for the bios suggestion as well.
