ok, think that should work. let me know if not. You may note the spot where i entered the keys for the solo stick, i’m not sure if thats the proper spot or not. I saw a few other places where maybe it should have been entered? Thanks again for your time!trizzaneParticipant03/19/2015 at 21:10Post count: 13trizzaneParticipant03/19/2015 at 21:06Post count: 13
trying to copy the file to roms folder, and im not bright enough for it to work. my command is:
cp retroarch.cfg home/pi/retropie/roms
i have tried other variations of this using the ~ for ‘home’ and i always get an error that the directory or file doesn’t exist. If i use only ‘roms’ for my destination i do not get an error, but nothing is copied. I also added ‘sudo’ in front thinking that might help, but no luck. What am i doing wrong?trizzaneParticipant03/18/2015 at 16:45Post count: 13
Buzz, i just realized, my lack of Linux might hurt me on this one. Can i open the Raspian GUI using ‘startx’ form the command line? Will i then be able to find a file broswer there to locate the config doc and easily be able to copy to pastebin as you mentioned? I haven’t booted to anything but ES in quite sometime. Thanks!trizzaneParticipant03/18/2015 at 14:16Post count: 13trizzaneParticipant03/18/2015 at 14:08Post count: 13
Saying that, i have to guess something was left over from my old auto-detect setup form the retro controller that i didn’t change? since nothing i do on the Joystick is recognized at all (but is in ES and for MAME) that’s my only guess, but i don’t know what to even look for, or where.trizzaneParticipant03/18/2015 at 14:06Post count: 13trizzaneParticipant03/18/2015 at 13:07Post count: 13
Yep, that’s the first think i tried was to run that process from the menu, then try to register the stick for retroarch. It was not recognized at all nor did anything work in ES. At that point i thought maybe it was only for the tankstick and not the Solo, so i uninstalled it form the menu.
Once i got ES and MAME running by manually configuring in ES and in MAME (Tab) i thought i was all good, but i cant find any way to get RetroArch to work.
I did have it running fine with a generic retro/SNES type controller in the past, so maybe there is still something in the config file looking for that and not the xarcade stick? Since i manually configured it, im sure this is possible, but i have no idea what to check.
Thanks for the help!trizzaneParticipant03/18/2015 at 02:15Post count: 13
I did the auto detect setup for ES and it worked perfectly. Did the same for MAME by pressing TAB when in a game, and it also worked in full.
However, when i tried to ‘register retroarch controller’ it is not found at all and tells me no joystick detected. The stick seems invisible to retroarch completely. Do i need to change in the confg file that this is an xarcade device? Or ‘Joystick’ or is it just a keyboard? I am not sure where or how to do this, but what else could it be?trizzaneParticipant03/18/2015 at 02:12Post count: 13trizzaneParticipant03/18/2015 at 02:09Post count: 13
