Can you log in with putty? If so go to
change the bottom to the following to allow access if you are blocked.
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.rdhanded2Participant03/21/2016 at 03:13Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant03/14/2016 at 21:33Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant03/13/2016 at 19:08Post count: 132

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.rdhanded2Participant03/03/2016 at 14:32Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant02/29/2016 at 14:21Post count: 132
Got it. I edited /etc/ssh/sshd_config
and changed the athentication by adding in PermitRootLogin yes and
So now the section reads.

The script I got from Mausberry’s website performs a full shutdown for me. Have you had issues with it?rdhanded2Participant02/05/2016 at 19:30Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant02/05/2016 at 19:17Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant02/02/2016 at 01:42Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant01/30/2016 at 15:04Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant01/26/2016 at 00:52Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant01/22/2016 at 22:04Post count: 132
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.rdhanded2Participant01/22/2016 at 21:10Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant01/21/2016 at 20:28Post count: 132
[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.rdhanded2Participant01/19/2016 at 16:02Post count: 132rdhanded2Participant01/16/2016 at 19:37Post count: 132
# 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 =
video_aspect_ratio = 1.77
for 16:9 screen and I think it looks nice. The options are:
#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
