  A single .PBP file is ignored so gamelist.xml did not work
Posted by: genzi0401 - 10-12-2018, 10:23 AM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (3)

It seems the emulationstation is having some limitation in detecting any bigger size file.

My guess is any file which exceeds 2GB, for instance, the .PBP file of Final Fantasy VIII (2160718KB, around 2.06GB). The game can be launched and working fine. It's just the emulationstation unable to to detect it. Even my gamelist.xml and images all are fine and working with no errors for other games, it ended up only this FF8 game, emulationstation cannot view out the image/metadata.

The reason I came to such conclusion is by referring to es_log.txt and there's a line like this:

lvl1: File "/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/psx/Final Fantasy VIII.PBP" does not exist! Ignoring.

Final Fantasy IX is around 1.75GB and emulationstation detects it but for FF8 seems no luck.

Already posted in reddit and replied to a related topic in retropie uk forum but got an answer from moderator. He asked me to update emulationstation since they already made it support 2GB rom. I knew clearly we on ROPi should not simply upgrade emulationstation but I still did that. The update messed things up and the issue did not solve but I am suspecting it would not solve on RetroPie too.

My concern is, does the latest 4.2 ROPi image include latest emulationstation with that new feature? Or any help in solving this issue?

  How hot is too hot for the RetroStone?
Posted by: TROFF - 10-11-2018, 08:04 AM - Forum: Retrostone - Replies (1)


I know the Retrostone is using the h3 chip but I am not sure what the recommended and max temperature range is for the RetroStone.

I am using the armbianmonitor command from an ssh shell to monitor temp:
sudo armbianmonitor -M

The readings will go over 70c after about 15-20 minutes. At times the unit will start to freeze at this point. I try to shutdown before it gets much over 70c.

I've read that the H3 chips run hot but I can't find a spec that clearly states the max temp.

Anyone know what it is?

  How to expand system to fit 64gb sd card?
Posted by: genzi0401 - 10-10-2018, 12:22 PM - Forum: RetrOrangePi v4.2 version - Replies (2)

So I just finished setup my RetrOrangPi nicely with all my preferences, settings and configurations on 32GB Sandisk class 10 memory card.

And I bought a new 64GB Sandisk class 10 micro sd recently. I wish to flash my 32GB image file created by win32diskimager to the new 64GB one. I don’t want to start everything from scratch.

Question is, is there any way I can expand the whole file system to fit the new 64GB card? So I can make full use of all extra storage.

Retropie has something to do in their raspi-config, but we don’t have it in RetrOrangePi.

So how to do that? Any idea? Thanks.

I am on OPi Lite.

  Screenarea Gameboy
Posted by: secondd - 10-08-2018, 09:42 AM - Forum: Retrostone - Replies (1)

Is is possible to adjust the screenarea being used for Gameboy so that the original ratio is preserved (would mean black bars left + right, but no streched image)?

I.e. the image is streched (wide) to fit the 4:3 screen yet the original ratio is 3.28:3 (so quite a bit narrower)

I've been working on modifying the RetroStone screen. I replaced it with a 3.5in IPS LCD with an HDMI input. Here is a link to a short video (work in progress):
