    I don’t know if the issue is in Retropie (the image) or the Pi itself.
    I have other strang issues, like drops in SSH connections, and problems to reboot the Pi, it sais that it’s going to reboot, but nothing happens.

    It shouldn’t be the powersupply since I use the official powersupply…

    I did have some issues, but after a new installation everything worked fine.

    Nope, I can’t access it through SSH. I’ve seen it around 55-60, so no high temperature.
    Using a newly downloaded Retropie image for the RPi3, so the config.txt is not for my RPi2.

    [quote=119304]When in Emulation Station you could re-create the file by pressing Start on the controller and entering the Input controller menu.

    [/quote]

    And if I cannot enter that menu with my controller?

    [quote=99250]I managed to get Leisure Suit Larry running in ScummVM, both the floppy DOS version and the VGA remake, in a matter of minutes, a lot more straightforward than DOSBox.

    I just followed the quick start instructions at the Retropie wiki. Alternatively, check out herbfargus’ video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txdiaZlDUEs

    I agree, it was very easy using ScummVM. :)
    I’ve added many games from my childhoood, thanks for the tip! :)

    It is indeed Leisure Suit Larry. But not the VGA version, mostly using keyboard-arrows and writing lines with the keyboard. :)

    But I will take a look at ScummVM aswell. Thanks!

    [quote=99235]do you have wolf3d game folder in the pc rom folder? if not that’s probably why, or if you do you might need to chown pi:pi to the folder.

    [/quote]

    No, I created lsl1.sh and added this line:

    #!/bin/bash
    /opt/retropie/emulators/dosbox/bin/dosbox -c “mount c /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pc” -c “c:” -c “cd lsl1” -c “Lsl1.com” -c “exit”

    [quote=99200]/opt/retropie/configs/pc/emulator.cfg

    should look like this

    dosbox="%ROM%"
    default="dosbox"

    then you need to input the individual launch.sh for each game.

    /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pc/Wolfenstein 3D.sh

    #!/bin/bash
    /opt/retropie/emulators/dosbox/bin/dosbox -c "mount c /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/pc" -c "c:" -c "cd wolf3d" -c "WOLF3D.EXE" -c "exit" 
    

    Hope that answers a couple of questions.

    Thanks, it sorts of works. It turns up in ES, but it stops immediately.

    [quote=99196] @elgur85 the trick is to edit es_system to show only .sh launch scripts. You also have to make a launch .sh for each game and edit the config/dosbox emulator by removing the launch command and only leaving %rom%. Takes a bit of work but once you got it edited, everything works easily.

    [/quote]

    Thanks! I understand how to edit es_system.cfg. What file is the config-file for Dosbox? :)

    I read this:

    “If you are new to Retropie 3.0, then simply add your game files to the ~/RetroPie/roms/pc folder (check the first tutorial if you’re unsure how to do this). You can then launch them directly from Emulation Station by selecting the executable file (.EXE, .BAT, .COM) in the game folder.”

    in this link: http://dosonthepi.blogspot.ca/2015/04/retropie-30-update.html

    But adding games to the pc folder doesn’t make the games show up in ES. :(

    When I installed it, the “rom” folder appeared. I added a game, and BIOS.
    But how do I start the emulator? Doesn’t show up in ES.

    Oh, I didn’t know I had to install it from a menu. :)

    [quote=93458]The temperature won’t be an issue. These CPUs are good for 85 degrees before they start to throttle. It’s more likely your cpu or ram or both cannot handle to overclock settings. Maybe drop the ram overclock a little and overvolt it a touch.[/quote]

    Thanks, I will give that a try. :)

    [quote=2077]Hey, just wondering what people have as their overclock settings, with my settings I have near perfect playback of all systems, and PSX plays perfect.

    arm_freq=1000
    gpu_mem=384
    avoid_safe_mode=1
    core_freq=500
    sdram_freq=500
    over_voltage=4
    force_turbo=0
    [/quote]

    I tried using these settings, but my Pi freezes when it’s getting close to 60 degrees celsius when playing SNES games. :(

    Edit: I changed to “Medium” overclock using raspi-config. Then it doesn’t get warmer then 50 degrees.

    I’m running on “Meduim” overclock trough Raspi-config now with a Raspberry Pi B with heatsinks. “Normal” temperature at console is about 46 degrees, isn’t that a bit high? Right after I quit ES using NES emulator, it’s about 51 degrees.

    I’m using Logitech Dual Action, a rather old controller now I think.
    But it works like a charm. :)

    Well, I did some other changes in my “file”. :)
    So now, everything works perfectly! Thanks! :)

    Well, that does the trick, thank you.
    But then I have to do some other moddings as well. :)

    My B button on NES games will then reset the ROM.
    And my Start button kills emulationstation.

    Hehe. :)

    Hello there!

    Is it possible to save “states” by only using one button?
    And another for loading states?

    elgur85

    So, I found out what file / files to edit.
    But do I have to use a “hotkey” to be able to save/load state?
    Can’t I just configure to use one button?
