  Unable to get ASUS USB-AC53 Nano to work.
Posted by: xerotyme - 3 hours ago - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - No Replies

I recently purchased an ASUS USB-AC53 Nano and an ASUS Bluetooth adapter. The Bluetooth adapter works fine with my Retrostone. I’m not able to get the WiFi adapter to work. Does anyone know how I can get it to work? Any and all help would be highly appreciated! Thanks... Smile

  New SupremeRetrostone image
Posted by: Régalad - Yesterday, 10:18 AM - Forum: Retrostone - Replies (5)

Hi Everyone,

I want to share with you the image we made on the Retrorangepi one.
We are a team of makers on Raspeberry PI and odroid XU4. As we have buy a Retrostone we have started working on it.
We have call it SupremeRetrostone because we call all build we made as "Supreme"  but the goal here is to give you all the impovement we have made on UI (ES), emulator, etc.. to have a better retrorange base image Smile.
So i have also send all files we change to the Retrorangepi team (Alexkidd).

This is the video présentation of the SupremeRetrostone image:


in french

What we have do :

New themes fixed to fit the retrostone screen (bowcity, heychromey)
New systems supported (TG16, TGCD, SGFX, HACKED, SFC, SEGA CD, MSX2 etc......)
New roms extentions support on many systems
New system order (atari, nintendo, sega, sony, SNK, arcade, computers etc..)
Lot of tweak and improvement on emulators (Retroarch, Dosbox, PSP, Dreamcast, Mupen64 etc...)
New Item on main screen (KODI, PIXEL, POWER, RADIO)
Reorganisation of some script of options menu (BG music, HDMI selector etc...)
Fix some pi user right

Download link (image only no roms or bios) :

There is still some issue to fix like the PSP and scummvm exit but all other stuff are ready to go  Cool

Hope you guys enjoy it

  Best way to backup/copy the SD card?
Posted by: TROFF - 09-23-2018, 10:57 PM - Forum: Retrostone - Replies (2)


I just had a fatal crash on my Retrostone and had to reformat and refresh the SD card. (It has been working very well, it froze when I was experimenting with N64 settings, so mostly my fault). 

So my question is once I have the SD card flashed and I install all the ROMs and Bios and change all the config files, what is the best way to clone the entire SD card?

I realize it is not in a format that will mount on a PC or Mac so not sure what options we have.

I could mount the ROMS/BIOs/Config folders via wifi and back them up, but not sure if I am getting everything.

Any ideas for best way to clone the entire SD card?

  Broken system start (boot)
Posted by: laguna - 09-23-2018, 08:53 AM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (3)

Hello good day,

You see, I have the following problem, to see if you can help me please.

It turns out that I had some problem with ES and decided to update from the EmulationStation source. Up there very well, no problem!

When updating ES, the option "openlec" appeared in the start menu, and since I did not know what it was, I pressed it, to try ... The result has been that the boot has been corrupted, it seems that there is a failure in the boot , and the system does not start ... Attachment screenshot of the error.

Please, does this have a solution? Or do I have to format the sd and install it all again ?? I feel very lazy thinking about having to install everything from scratch, since I had many hours of custom configuration made in the system ...

Please look if you can help me, thanks !!!

data: orange pi pc, retrorangepi 4.2 full.

Thumbs Up Emulator speed increasing
Posted by: lujongia - 09-22-2018, 07:36 AM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (1)

Hello guys, 

I remember having a function on GBA emulator allowing to run the rom faster, so you run faster, long discussions in games last seconds etc...

Would it be possible to map a non used key to trigger such function? 

I've seen you can assign turbo keys, but it's not the same.

Thanks a lot.

  Adding analog joystick support
Posted by: TROFF - 09-20-2018, 10:07 PM - Forum: Retrostone - No Replies


I’d like to add an analog joystick to my Retrostone. I have a joystick (psp type thumbstick) and I am waiting for the A to D ic to show up in the mail.

I can handle the soldering but it looks like the support for an analog joystick has not been added yet.
I think trying to modify the driver in software is over my head.

Is anyone working on the driver?

Here is a link to Pierre’s site in which he talks about the driver:

Thanks for any help.

Hi guys,

So I installed the version 4.2, and everything's working fine for me excepted one thing : I can't seem to be able to have stable saves. 

I'm currently playing on Golden Sun GBA, I always save in game and with save states, but sometimes, I don't know why, the in game save is reverting to an old one (at the beginning of the game, of course) and all my save states are gone! 

I already started again 3 times, but now that I lost once again my saves I'm turning to you : where could it be coming from? I have seen the same result with other games. 

During shutdown I always quit emulation station before using the big power switch : must I use the shutdown option than the switch? Or could it be the SD card?? 

Thanks in advance.
