    Thanks whise

    When you say you “added your own specific joypad name” does this mean you added a name of your choosing or is there some way to get the name of the joypad from mupen64plus output when it is starting? I have read that you can register your control but don’t think I’ve done that – is this how you get the name of the controller?

    Will be looking into this later today – gotta be honest – this whole configure joysticks thing confuses the hell out of me but I’ll do some trial and error.

    I’ll see how I go and hope that in the meantime you can answer my couple of questions here and/or someone else may come along and shed some more light on this for me.

    Thanks for the response

    Like I said I had found the files but InputAutoCfg.ini is located at this path in my installation:
    /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/mupen64plue-rpi/test/

    Do you know if I need to edit both that file and also mupen64plus.cfg located at /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/mupen64plus-rpi to have the same settings?

    I am also wondering if InputAutoCfg.ini needs to be moved from the current path and into /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/mupen64plus-rpi instead?

    I did find that my wireless keyboard is working for the one game I have in the n64 ROMS folder (Mario Kart) but I need settings for snes controller.

    Can anyone give details for this?

    Triple post hog here – apologies.

    But s*****t yeeeeeahhhhh – SUCCESS!!!!!!

    Thanks for the help and steering me in the right direction all – much appreciated.

    I mentioned it at another post I have made here at this forum but I’m gonna say it again – I think I just made another Splashscreen in my pan…. nah false alarm again.

    RetroPie and Rpi rocks!!!!!!!!! :) :) :)

    No improvements required – that looks freakin awesome!!

    Here I was thinkin I was going well with changing some background art but all I do is make an image – I don’t dare fiddle with the theme files code.

    I’m definitely adding this to my start screen for piFBA if I can figure it out – it will be even more awesome if I can figure out how to get the games working – lol – nice work bro :)

    Update

    OK so from the same source I gots me the kof98.zip I gots me a copy of mslug (thought I’d try another game for s***ts and giggles.

    This time it’s a different problem – I have all the audio and I can hear my weapons being fired if I furiously hit the buttons but all I have in relation to OSD after apparently inserting my coin is a sky blue background, level and credit text at the bottom of the screen and the arms/bomb count and insert coin for second player flashing at me at top of screen – sheesh.

    So is this like so many people say that it is a matter of finding the right BIOS and the right ROM and then you MIGHT get results or am I having yet another issue here?

    Freakin hell – there has to be an easier way – take this as a joke cause it is one but for bejesus’es sake I’m just about ready to do some real shooting if this don’t co-operate shortly and I mean pronto!!!!

    Thanks for posting back – I have progress!

    After changing the es_systems config file to use piFBA I have placed the zipped neogeo BIOS directory inside /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/fba along with kof98.zip

    If I select kof98 from the menu it loads into the checker board screen, I then select the Start button (on my single generic RetroLink SNES controller) and get the color adjustment screen – I then hit the start button again and get to the I/O screen.

    I guess this is why you guys are talking about best controller cause from there I can’t figure out what I need to do to get the game running.

    I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing with controller configuration files and was lucky enough to be directed to a download of a dgenrc configuration file and also a retroarcg.cfg file which is good for atari2600, nes, snes, psx, mastersystem and gba. These are the ONLY controller config files I have touched.

    I have attached the above mentioned config files (EDIT- MMM – no config file uploads permitted :(-

    could someone tell me where I need to go from here to get neogeo happening please – what do I need to do at the I/O screen or elsewhere to get this working?

    (stay tuned for questions about n64 controller configuration – ha :)

    Alright so I’ve edited the lines as suggested in the es_systems.cfg file at /home/pi/.emulationstation – is this the file you refer to?

    If that is correct then what is the next step for me?

    Thanks for the reply

    Could you possibly clarify my other questions by quoteing?

    Neo Geo emulation has been driving me seriously batty – i have atari 2600, nes, snes, psx, mastersystem and gba sorted but this just ain’t happening for me.

    Like I said could you please clarify the questions I have asked – trying to save as much confusion here as possible – cheers.

    (are you possibly saying that using the other emulator negates the need for the BIOS files? If not where is the placement, do I need both neogeo AND uni-bios and if so how and where are they placed, packed? unpacked? the files inside the unpacked directories only)

    Linux for lin00bix here!

    Hey guys and gals

    I have spent 2 full days trying to get neo geo games to run and the furthest I got was by following this thread.

    Unfortunately I am still unable to get things happening.

    I have made a couple of assumptions and will try to explain in the hope that someone can please help me get neo geo games happening cause I’m starting to pull my hair out here and at 38 I don’t have much left – I really need to shoot some Metal Slugs to let off steam!

    STEP 1

    I had no neogeobios directory at /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gngeo-pi-0.85/ so so I ASSUME the folder needed to be created – correct?

    I am unzipping the BIOS files in Windows 7 using the default Windows unzip utility and then sftp’ing the files over using Filezilla – so when I unzip
    neogeo.zip and uni-bios.zip the directories created are then called neogeo and uni-bios – are these the correct directory names because I notice that in the above how to it says unibios and not uni-bios which was the name of the original zip file I downloaded?

    So when I have the extracted directories inside these are:

    uni-bios directory content = uni-bios.rom

    and

    neogeo directory = 000-lo.lo
    asia-s3.rom
    sfix.sfx
    sm1.sm1
    sp-e.sp1
    sp-j2.rom
    sp-s.sp1
    sp-s2.sp1
    usa_2slt
    vs-bios.rom

    Is this what I require? Do I use all these files?

    Do I place the neogeo and uni-bios DIRECTORIES at /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gngeo-pi-0.85/neogeobios still assuming that I create a directory named
    neogeobios at /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gngeo-pi-0.85/ OR do I place ONLY the FILES within those directories at that location?

    STEP 2

    gngeo_data.zip – place extracted directory at path? Place content of extracted directory at path? Place gngeo_data.zip at path?

    Also I ASSUME once again that FULL path = /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/gngeo-pi-0.85/installdir/share/gngeo/ is this correct?

    STEP 3

    I have no gngeorc file at /home/pi/.gngeo/ – the .gngeo directory is empty so what do I do – create a new file using Filezilla? If so what content needs to be written to the file?

    I’m really sorry to have revived a thread that is a couple of months old and for asking so many questions but I’d like to get this working.

    I’ve been going round in circles on Google and at this forum, Git Hub and Raspberry Pi forums but I can’t see a full step by step guide on how
    to get this working.

    The best I’ve done is the good old dot in the centre of my monitor trick, a message from gngeo about can’t find file and press any key to exit or something
    to that degree and best of all the neo geo looked like it was loading at one stage but then froze.

    MEGA post I know but I wanted to be clear so unfortunately I couldn’t quite be concise- sorry all – please help me out here – killin me!

    Nice work man!

    Love the Atari wood grain – takes me back to the good old days when I actually had the real deal with the faux wood finish – nice!

    Thanks very much for that link @insecurespike – looks like a really reaaaaally comprehensive guide which everyone posting back seemed very happy with.

    I only quickly skipped over it for now but will be sure to be looking into that further as pronto as possible.

    How awesome is this RetroPie project and the Raspberry Pi – I think I just made a new splashscreen in my ….. nah it’s cool!

    Much appreciated Karloss – can you please post a link or let me know how to navigate to sticky threads on this forum please.

    I know I know – I’m such a noob :) Cheers

    Edit: No worries – I’m there!

    TY so much Karloss – this will be first on my list of things to look at in the morning mate

    Thanks for the reply karloss

    Yes – It certainly would be something I’m interested in my friend.

    I have a backup image of where I am up to at the moment which I have tested as working so I am more than willing to experiment with other ways to go about what it is I am trying to achieve.

    If you can post the details that would be MORE than AWESOME! :)

    Thanks again in advance
