    I just cut the power line on my usb cable and added a switch to it..still need to shutdown cleaning in Emulation Station, but can cut power to the pi no problems after..just do that and wire it to the snes power button…

    I had loads of issues when using berryboot, in the end i just “moved” my install to a 128gb usb key and all works without issues…

    the biggest issue with berryboot is that you are unable to properly overclock the install/device as berryboot handles it and you can’t edit the “config.txt” specificity for that installl…

    i think its something along the lines of “quitting properly”, esp between reboots, if you don’t “shutdown” you loose your save, I believe..

    Not to sure on saves, I was trying to work this out myself…

    PSX games have to be in bin format, I ripped mine using imgburn..

    I assume you are using RCA,

    “Also, PetRockBlog recently added a feature for changing the HDMI resolution when starting Retro-Arch based systems. This seems to interfere with video working properly on composite screens. To disable it, you need to edit the ~/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg file. Change the line:

    COMMAND=$rootdir/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 1 “retroarch -…

    to:

    COMMAND=$rootdir/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 2 “retroarch -…”

    get yourself some little heatsinks for your chips, you can get on ebay well cheap..and make sure your using a powered usb hub, esp if you are using the 360 controller, I find that consumes more power than my generic lookeylikey.

    this has been discussed loads mate…

    so for every emulator, cange the 1 to a 2.. and it will work.

    Hey mate, are you running overclocked?

    are you using a powered usb hub?

    are you using an sdimage? 1.5 or 1.6.1? or you build from source?

    Hey mate, with these settings I have no crashes, I believe the overvolt makes the difference..

    in reply to: Question #2104

    well, there are no good “legal” roms…

    most roms now are so old that they are almost classed as abandon-ware, so your probably be ok, it all depends on your countries copyright laws, but anything before nes/master system and upto PSX, you will find very unlikely that anyone will try and prosecute you for having them..

    I am not telling you to go and do it, but im just saying, its your choice, but your pretty safe..

    Hey mate, I think a powered Hub is the answer, I can confirm myself that the 1.5 image + xboxdr works fine, as that is what i used, though i did find that the xbox remote needs powered hub, other controls don’t so its just a 360 remote issue..

    Maybe have a try running the RetroPie script and doing a source install of DGEN see if it fixes it? I used 1.5 with as a base and have done a couple of updates this wa and all seems to be working fine…

    going to try the 1.6.1 base tonight

    Hey Jon,

    I have my Pi overclocked at 1050mhz, will post my settings later.

    I used one of these for the sound – 3.5mm Switched Socket I used a phono extender form the pi and cut the other end off, wired that to this jack, and also my speakers to this jack, so when unplugged it goes to speakers, when headphones plugged, it goes to them..

    for the HDMI, I used this Here it allows mounting on the outside of the table and plugging into the Pi, so if my HDMI is plugged in and I turn on Pi, it will goto HDMI, if I unplug, it will goto the two internal screens.

    hope that helps

    hey,

    I put mine in RetroArch/emulatorcores/(then psx-rearmed folder I think)

    I had alot of trouble, and found that it turned to be the images I was using, maybe try another one from another site, or backup your own, I have a number of my own backups working fine on it.

    I believe RetroPie has variable resolution (check the retropieconfig script)..

    but remember you are using a Standard Def 10/15 year old console, emulated, and stretched in HD resolution..its never going to look that good….
