    Can you log in with putty? If so go to

    /etc/ssh/sshd_config

    sudo nano

    change the bottom to the following to allow access if you are blocked.

    # Authentication:
    LoginGraceTime 120
    #PermitRootLogin without-password
    PermitRootLogin yes
    StrictModes yes

    Also, I always add a root password by entering the following and typing a password

    sudo passwd root

    then when I use Filezilla I use root for username and the password I entered for full access.

    I use these for all my pi builds and they are great. Has power button, reset button, and external led hookups.

    Do you have a colored square in the top right of the screen when it happens. Sounds like it could be a low voltage or over heating issue.

    Limitation of the memory of the pi. No fix as of now.

    Got it. I edited /etc/ssh/sshd_config

    and changed the athentication by adding in PermitRootLogin yes and
    So now the section reads.

    # Authentication:
    LoginGraceTime 120
    #PermitRootLogin without-password
    PermitRootLogin yes
    StrictModes yes

    Now I am able to log in with Filezilla.

    I did what I always do. Logged in with Putty and changed the root password. Then I try to log in with Filezilla but it will not. Did the password setup change between wheezy and Jessie?

    Putty still works fine. I downloaded Winscp and I can log in with that, just not filezilla.

    I have had good luck with these chargers. Cured my low power issues because of voltage drop with everything plugged into my pi.

    The script I got from Mausberry’s website performs a full shutdown for me. Have you had issues with it?

    I have ps1 games on an external drive. I do use a powered hub for it but I have it formatted fat32 and I have no issues. They seem to play just fine for me, though I haven’t played a ton of them yet.

    Are you getting any colored squares on the top right of the screen before it goes black? A solid red one or a 4 colored one? Just an thought but those mean either over heating or under powered and can cause your issue.

    I like it! Very cool build. Just watch the Powerboost 500, you might have power issues with it since it is only 500ma.

    Man, compared to just a few versions ago it is mostly automated. It is staggering to me to see how far retropie has come in the last year in terms of ease of use. I feel new users are too lucky!

    I am always astounded by people who want to have gaming setups but refuse to do any legwork. I have been active in Hyperspin for several years and you want to talk about a beast to setup if you are new, it takes the cake. But the payoff is worth it and that is why the community grows there and why the community grows here, so that people can help one another and learn and pass along suggestions and ideas. It is easy to get frustrated but try not to take it out on the people here who are here to help you on their time and for free.

    I always tell people if you are unwilling or unable to set one up then go buy them, they are out there in abundance. Or, get an original xbox and run coinops. As long as the xbox is modded, coinops works as soon as you install it. No real setup needed.

    [quote=114658]well for arguments sake lets have an auto setup for a newb like me who knows nothing about Linux and for all you moany pros a none configured version where you have to setup absolutely everything that will teach you lol.

    With your usb controller. Hit select (I think. Maybe Start. Not in front of my retropie setup), edit metadata, delete. No SSH or anything needed.

    sudo nano /boot/config.txt

    Try there. I am not home so I can not check and see if that is where you change the emulationstation resolution or not but I know overscan and things are in there.

    # video_fullscreen_x =
    # video_fullscreen_y =

    Remove the # so that the the lines are not ignored and make the resolution size whatever you want. Example: 1080 would be

    video_fullscreen_x = 1920
    video_fullscreen_y = 1080

    Also there is an aspect ratio you can adjust, and again need to remove the # when you adjust it.

    # video_aspect_ratio =

    I use
    video_aspect_ratio = 1.77
    for 16:9 screen and I think it looks nice. The options are:

    video_aspect_ratio =
    #1.333333 (4:3) Traditional SDTV
    #1.56 (14:9) 4:3/16:9 Compromise aspect ratio
    #1.6667 (5:3 Super 16mm)
    #1.77 (16:9) HDTV US standard
    #1.78 (16:9) HDTV US standard alternate
    #1.6 (16:10) Common computer screen ratio
    #1.6667 (5:3) Common European widescreen standard
    #1.85 Common US widescreen cinema
    #2.39 Current widescreen cinema alternate
    #2.40 Current widescreen cinema alternate

    You can hit a button when launching a game and make changes to the emulator there including size. Also

    /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg can be edited to whatever size you choose.

    Win32Discimager is safe. How are you mounting it? Also, I just re-downloaded the image and it is not corrupt. I got the pi2 image and used the torrent version.

    Reason I ask is if you extract it then try to open it in Windows it will say corrupt. You don’t open it, you write the image to an SD card.

    When you extract it and then try to write it you get corrupt, or you are trying to open it after extraction in windows and it says coorrupt?

    You can’t use filezilla or a similar app to access and delete the files? Or putty to get to command line?
