    FYI, gameboy art does not work until you rename gb_art_blur.png to gb_art_blur.jpg or edit theme.xml.

    I did change my default emulator from pifba to lr-fba if that helps the poster above any. I built my roms from the dat files posted on the wiki.

    So far so good.

    Thanks

    Its the esc on the keyboard that does not exit a game. But if I hit shift+enter, it exits the game using a keyboard. Joystick exits as it should.

    Thats not an issue though.

    Love it!! Could not figure out the esc key at first but finally figured out using a keyboard was shift+enter. Just loaded it so going to mess with it tonight.

    Works great so far. Clean!!! Thanks for all the hard work.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for ng this and coming back. Much appreciated. here area a few of my thoughts.

    1 – I personally prefer my roms on usb/external. This also makes it easier to add/remove roms, especially for my non-technical friends. Plug it in PC and do what you need/ LoL

    My directions for this –
    -sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g (I have a 500Gb drive hooked with with psx games)
    -sudo mount -t ntfs-3g -o uid=pi,gid=pi /dev/sda1 /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/
    -Edit fstab and add /dev/sda1 /home/pi/RetroPie/roms ntfs-3g 0 1

    Done. No configs to change. No need to expand SD card. Maybe some users might like this and you do not have to make multiple versions?

    2 – Your arcade classics gamelist is fantastic. I would keep them maybe and and users can overwite if they want to. If you do the usb thing above, and scrape, it saves the game list on the usb along with images and yours remain on the sd and just ignored.

    Hopefully this helps and gives ideas.

    Thanks

    Another thing regarding es_config, the inputconfiguration.sh located in /opt/retropie/supplementary/emulationstation/scripts seems to be the issue. After you input the keys, it doesnt seem to run.

    I absolutely love the image as is.

    I keep my roms on usb so i mount it with a single command and all my roms show up and not configs to change. Use sshelper to scrape and all works. Images, gamelist, roms, etc all on a thumb drive. No need to expand sd card.

    For es_input, just map is normally and copy the text to es_input.cfg.

    Besides that, it all works like you intended so thank you.

    @ smithers – Looks good. Only one issue so far. After you configure your emulationstation controls (example keyboard) for the first time, it writes to es_temporaryinput.cfg but not to es_input.cfg.

    It remains untouched calling

    <?xml version="1.0"?>
    <inputList>
      <inputAction type="onfinish">
        <command>sudo /opt/retropie/supplementary/emulationstation/scripts/inputconfiguration.sh</command>
      </inputAction>
    </inputList>

    So it prompts you configure the controls every time you reboot.

    easy fix, copy the code from the temp file to the permanent one.

    Besides that, looks great so far.

    I’ll definitely take the new image. Will be easier for others. It looks like your rom names matched the mame file names (from dat files) and console ones matched no-intro so it all worked perfectly. I took your rom list, put them in a batch file, then copied out all the roms you had as my baseline.

    I then added my own roms and used emumovies downloader to get new images and appended -image to each picture and created a new gamelist based on a script i saw on your image.

    It all just works. I been diving into your image, very creative with the dualboot, noobs, and scripts to switch and mount back and forth.

    Love the transition in the theme, bigger posters and now it finally makes sense while you killed the menus. No one can screw it up and looks so clean. Another thing i like is how you cant scroll left or right within a system and you have to back out to scroll.

    The little things you did make it my favorite so far.

    Thank you.

    I only had 1 issue, when creating my own navigation for emulationstation, the keys would be in es_input_temporary) something like that, but not in es_config so i just copied them over and bam!! worked.

    Great job!!!!

    Thanks again!! Everything you posted above worked like a charm. By the way, csudo chmod +x “filename.sh” fixed all the scripts.

    Copying over the es_config file you provided also fixed my controllers. Your command enable/disable also worked great.

    I appreciate you uploading another image.

    Either, way, i know it was a lot of work and you put in so much time into this, truly shows but love what you did with it.

    The modified theme alone makes it look so much better

    Anyways, thanks again!!!

    So you recommend us using the latest image and updating the binaries per your guide. Does retroarch not get updated this way?

    Sorry im new to this and more curious than anything.

    Thank for the great guide by the way.

    Will try it regarding the roms, as for the navigation keys, I am curious where they stored. I thought es_input.cfg for example

    Start=Enter key
    Select=right shift key (to scroll directly to a specific letter)
    A=S key
    B=A key
    Left bottom = page down
    Right bottom= page up
    etc

    and if I wanted to register a new controller withing emulationstation (not retroarch) how do i bring the menu up to do it using the keyboard?

    Thanks for the quick reply

    So I am trying a couple things and cant get them to work:

    1 – F4 disabled? get black screen
    2 – SCP roms to roms folder, access denied

    Thanks

    Finally had a chance to load it. Bo9ots right up. had to change the resolution but looks great.

    I am trying to figure out the ES navigation controls for now. Lookindg at retroarchconfig but confused on the keyboard navigation. But will report back once I check it out more. It does work and boots and looks pretty though.

    Thanks

    Wow!! Simply thank you! Love the whole “Merged AdvMAME and MAME4ALL / lr-MAME4ALL under 1 system menu and assigned the best emulator for each rom”

    I cant wait to dig into this deeper after work. Will def be watching this thread.

    Thanks again!!!!!!

    Is it necessary to update binaries if you have the latest image?

    For some reason if I update binaries after setting up controls in emulation i cant move left or right but buttons work.

    If I just use beta 3 update 4 and perform the entire tutorial, after setting up controls in emulation station, i can move left and right.

    Anyways, was curious if we had to update or not.

    Thanks

    So besides the script on each partition to switch back and forth, what else did you to to retropie itself?

    Did you modify the way it transitions when you launch something, looks like it. Also did you change the default image size for poster? I am just curious off the top of your head the things you did. It looks so clean and smoooth.

    Thanks

    Mega is a great choice and also if you have a google drive. I personally for something like this would use mega.

    File to edit: /opt/retropie/emulators/mame4all/mame.cfg

    Change to this: rompath=/media/usb/mame-mame4all

    Basically, es_systems.cfg file and the config file for your version of mame both need to point to the same path.

    Quick question. doesnt this “sudo rm * -rf” remove all directories? Would it be easier to copy them to the hdd first?

    in reply to: USB Automount #99361

    After much reading, found the answer. it was a delay that was needed.

    For anyone else who runs into this problem.

    sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt

    Change:

    elevator=deadline rootwait

    to:

    elevator=deadline rootwait rootdelay=5

    Thanks again

    Thanks will do. Much appreciated. This happens even with a fresh install. I can write the image to sd card, without changing anything, I have to manually mount my thumb drive.

    I tried multiple thumb drives same result. I will keep researching. Thanks again.
