@cocbanana88 if you haven’t expanded the filesystem then you will get that same error when trying to move roms or screens over b/c there isn’t room anymore.
Likewise if you are trying to edit any file outside of the home dir then pi user won’t have permission and you’ll see that error. That’s why my solution was to copy the file over to somewhere the PI user does have access and update the path. I believe the guys are working on a better fix for future versions.mcbourneParticipant08/14/2015 at 23:57Post count: 12
I got my splashscreen back. I don’t know why it’s harder now but it looks like they moved all splashscreens to /opt/retropie/supplementary/splashscreen/ which you don’t have permission to mess with unless you create a root password and login with root.
So upload your custom image somewhere in retropie where you have permission and then go to the setup script, choose custom splash, option 5 manually set splashscreen list then paste in the path to the image, like
This seems much harder to me than having them all just sit in the supplementary dir like they were in BETA 4 and before…mcbourneParticipant08/14/2015 at 22:55Post count: 12mcbourneParticipant06/18/2015 at 03:15Post count: 12
To get SEGA Genesis theme put your ROMS in the megadrive dir and go edit a file,
sudo nano /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg
scroll down to megadrive and change the theme line to genesis

The MUPEN64 is working a lot better. Thanks for all who’ve contributed.
I’m trying to get a retropie setup ready for my son’s bday. I’m testing 4 player mario kart and the gles2n64 plugin runs too fast and rice runs too slow.
Is the best solution to do a frame limit on with gles?
If I try the experimental MK video plugin the ROM doesn’t load, just a black screen.mcbourneParticipant04/13/2015 at 17:59Post count: 12
I’d start with a fresh 3.0 beta install. Also are you using the official microsoft receiver or a generic one?
I’m running 3.0 beta 2 and am pairing 4 xbox controllers just fine. Using official microsoft receiver. Noteworthy, mine says 4 like it should even if I’m not using 4 at the time, so something is funny since yours thinks it has 6.
One more thing to check is your power supply as the wireless receiver pulls power from USB, so make sure it’s getting enough power.mcbourneParticipant04/03/2015 at 00:48Post count: 12
From one noob to another:
– What are the preferred emulators(performance) for SNES, Genesis, MAME, and NES?
I’m running off the 3.0 image and so far all the default emulators (retroarch) runs these just fine, although I haven’t loaded up MAME yet.
– How can I configure it so that it loads a Controller’s configuration, no matter what port it is in? (AKA a Controller that can go into either port and still work perfectly)
The 3.0 has a retropie menu with a controller setup script. Running through this sets the retroarch file and has worked for me on wireless xbox 360 controllers, up to 4
– Any idea how to change volume (software) while emulating? (not a big deal, but would be great to know)
I saw options to set keys for this in the mupen n64 cfg file. If you have a key combo you want to set it to, you can search for how to edit the cfg file to add those key commands.
– Should I make the switch to 3.0 just yet? (I’m one for experimentation, but I generally want an idea for how it’s been for everyone else)
I like the simplified file structure and the retropie menu in emulation station. It all makes more sense to me while I’m poking around.
Hope that helps a littlemcbourneParticipant04/03/2015 at 00:39Post count: 12mcbourneParticipant03/30/2015 at 18:17Post count: 12
